I was travelling with an aunt, my mom, 3 kids, and an uncle so having several beds was key without breaking the bank by booking multiple rooms. This hotel was great for providing many different options for us. We had a 1 bedroom suite that had 2 single beds as well as 2 queen sofa beds in the living room. For my aunt and uncle who requested separate beds, they upgraded us to a single bed, queen bed + queen sofa bed studio. The rooms as a results were quite cramped with the sofa beds open but we didn't mind given the convenience of being able to all stay in the same room.
We loved stopping for snacks and breakfast items at the local Marks & Spencer at the Whiteley mall a couple of blocks down as well as being able to get to the underground within 3-4 minutes of walking. On our last day, we walked over to Kensington Palace and enjoyed a nice stroll through the park. It was only a 10 minute walk away. It was a pity that the older people in my party weren't comfortable riding bikes as there were 2 street bicycle rental stations nearby. The bus lines to get to the marble arch, picadilly circus, oxford circus and the theatre district was also just outside of the Kensington/Hyde park area so we were able to get around so easily. The kitchenette was handy for heating up pastries and storing some drinks we kept on hand. I would gladly return to this location.
Hotel was conveniently located - a few minutes to shopping, transit, restaurants - close to Hyde Park attractions. Easy ride to central sightseeing and just 2 minutes from the Hop on Hop off stop. Room was good size for a single occupant with kitchenette. Nice looking street. Price was economical - but don't expect room service. There's no elevator either. Otherwise good value all around.
We nearly always stay at GoNative Hyde Park when we are in London, which is at least once a year, sometimes more. The apartments are very pleasant, with all the amenities. The studio may be a little small for some (not for us, necessarily), but the deluxe studio (one step up) is roomy and comfortable. The location in Sussex Gardens is absolutely marvellous. It is only a five minute walk to the Paddington underground station, and two minutes the other way to Lancaster Gate (currently closed for repairs, 2017). For people flying into Heathrow, the Heathrow Express train service (for which one can purchase a rather inexpensive "super saver" there and back ticket) takes one directly from Terminals 2/3 to Paddington Station in only 15 minutes (it's about an hour by tube for those who wish to save a few pounds. Heathrow Express makes no stops). It's no problem rolling one's luggage down Praed and Spring Sts. to the hotel — no need for transport or taxi. The close location to underground and National Rail make all of London, indeed all of Britain, at arm's reach, yet Sussex Gardens is a very quiet and picturesque Georgian neighbourhood; the only sounds you'll tend to hear is the tolling of Anglo-Catholic St. James (where Oscar Wilde was married) just around the corner. And yet it's close to shopping and pubs; Hyde Park is literally a block down the street for those who like to walk, run, or just enjoy the outdoors. Two thumbs up; four if you count my big toes.
The rooms are very small (normal for this price range in central London). We stayed there about 5 days and I would say we were reasonably happy and comfortable. The room furniture is as pictured, except much older and beaten up. Earplugs are a must-- the walls are paper thin and we could hear people in the hall, doors banging closed, people next door, etc.
We had a basement room which was fairly depressing.
Kitchenette has a pot, small pan, plates, cups, cutlery (no bowls), and a couple glasses.

This is a 1 star hotel by American standards. It is adequate. Don't expect it to be the Waldorf Astoria. I was travelling with a 4 year old and needed to stay within a budget. There were 3 rooms (living area/bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom). The rooms were small. There was a shower and no bathtub. The rooms could use a deep cleaning. The building itself was very old and had charm. We stayed for 3 nights and were able to able to see the sights of London while staying within our budget thanks to the low cost of the hotel and the kitchenette. The neighborhood has 2 grocery stores, restaurants, pubs, and even a dollar store within walking distance. Two tube stations are within walking distance as well. Be aware that there is no elevator. Bottom line: If you need an inexpensive place to sleep and would like to save money by cooking your own meals while being in an amazing location, this is decent option.

"Great place to stay, would definitely recommend "
Fab place to stay, within walking distance of Paddington & Lancaster Gate stations, if you are fit you can easily walk to Oxford st and Buckingham Palace, Chelsea and Kensington. The beds were clean and comfortable, although the sofa bed wasn't great. Fab place to stay for older families and small groups
MStay39 Studios offers small hotel rooms with features you would normally find in an apartment, but with no central food and beverage facilities. Apart from a routine 3 star bed and 4 star bathroom, it offers a closet containing sink, microwave, kettle and cooking hob. It also has an iron/ironing board, safe and hairdryer. Unfortunately the rooms are so small that you can't do much other than warm up food and eat it on the pull down table. The safe is located on the floor of the closet so you need to crawl on hands and knees to read the instructions. Generally speaking, it's a nice idea that doesn't quite work. However, if you are looking for a decent place to crash for a night in a relatively central London location for a reasonable price, then it's not a bad option.
The best thing about this apartment was that it actually looked exactly like it does in the photos. It's right next to a police station and the subway is SUPER close. Everything is just a quick subway ride away. I would stay at this apartment over and over again. It was incredible!

It was a fantastic price, the location was good with a wide range of cafes and restaurants very near by, checking in and out was quick and easy, and the room was large with a comfortable bed. The shared kitchen and bathroom were also very nice and spacious - fantastic shower.
Unfortunately housekeeping really let it down for us - the hotel claimed that housekeeping was done daily, but on our very first night we ran out of toilet paper (this was a toilet shared by three rooms) and it wasn't replaced until the fourth night. Also on the first night somebody tracked mud all over the bathroom floor and into the only bathmat provided, leaving it way too dirty to use, and this wasn't dealt with at all (the dirty bathmat vanished at the same time as new toilet paper appeared, but it wasn't replaced so we were left with no bath mat and the bathroom floor was still muddy). Aside from this, we saw no evidence of housekeeping the whole time we were there, and the bathroom bin was quite full when we left.
You get what you pay for and the hotel was fine for the price, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone particular about cleanliness.
