I have tried a lot of hotels in London. If you have read my previous reviews. I wrote about the enterprise hotel and its hampster dwellings...
I should have known from the area that the rooms would be small but at least they are not as small as Enterprise. There is only really enough space for one person. With around 6 hangers in total.
The staff are really friendly. Again I have to leave my key at reception when I leave and then collect it when I get back.
There is no bar, no room srvice providing food except for breakfast. My view is of a wall with a roman column style pic, with willow trees on it...at least I can smoke on the balcony, ever cloud eh!
I got my prices from londontown.com where i brought two nights for £180, Im a little disssapointed but a least there is a bath where i can soak in!
Internet is £10 for 24 hours , the hotel connection is better than the residents btw! Im using the hotels due to my computer not working with theirs. Their reception is 2 bars lower.
Hope my view and opinions help you choose more wisley!
London hotels are not easy to find so unfortunately we had to settle on the Byron Hotel. This hotel is in the Bayswater area and is convenient to Central London and close to a few good restaurants and shopping centres.
A month ago we spent two nights in this hotel in town to attend a concert. Maybe it was the company in which we booked it through but we received a basement room. The room was clean with a comfortable bed but we were next too the noisy airing unit which made it almost unbearable to sleep once it kicked on which fainted the constant buzzing sound of the above lights when the door card was placed in the wall. Removing the card meant no electricity which meant no television.
Things got worse around 6am with stomping from the kitchen staff above the room and from the stairwell outside the room.
Breakfast was just mediocre without a lot of interesting choice. Yoghurt, cold cereal, tinned fruit, juice, coffee, cold ham and toast.
I also think that housekeeping could pay more attention to the windows. Just because it is on the basement floor doesn't mean I guest won't pull back the curtains
I don't think I would return to this hotel and if I did I would have to have a room on a top floor away from the constant noise. Also I don't think I would recommend it. If you have can afford it please go elsewhere. This place was £170 for two nights.
The only advantage to this place was the location.
