Good, simple single room at good price
Good location, nice staff and perfectly acceptable room for the price. It's hard to find a good place in London for less than £100 so coming in at £67 this is a steal the single business traveller. Would stay again.

Nice room
Nice room just for an overnight stay. It would be good if tap could swing out of the way to help with shaving.

Great located wee hotel.
Great location, 5 min walk from Bayswater tube station, 3 mins from Pubs and shops including Sainsbury and Tesco mini stores. The hotel was clean warm with great facilities. Each single room had 3 towels, toilet rolls, tissues, soap, hair gel, body gel and 2 disposable cups. The room size was fine a small tv with freeview. It had tea coffee hot chocolate and biscuits. It was fitted with hair dryer and fan. My room had a nice aspect overlooking Kensington Garden.

Pretty good-Recommended
Very nice hotel - lovely welcome on arrival. I was in Room 1 which was quite a hike up to the very top of the building. Immaculately clean and well serviced. My only slight gripe with the for the price of around £90, the room was incredibly small albeit comfortable. Furthermore, the Wi-Fi didn't reach the top floor so that's something that the management probably need to address. Great location for Bayswater tube station added to which there are plenty of places to walk in order to eat, drink and buy provisions. Very well lit area and safe.

Comfortable room and perfect location
Staff were very friendly, room was spacious and very comfortable. Had a really good nights sleep. There was a good selection of teas, coffees and toiletries. The location was perfect - 5 min walk to Bayswater (District & Circle) and less than 10 mins to Queensway (Central), as well as being just round the corner from loads of restaurants.
