Too small bathroom
Location, facilities incl. internet, all-round very good. None.
Hotel area, availability of the staff generally, however the restaurant service was not very good. The face that they offered us a room with baathroom handicap facilities in the first place, which we did not refuse (the room was nice, except the bathroom) as we understood the hotel was busy.
Very comfy beds, clean room and reception very accomodating my request for a park view The showers are very bad,really low pressure
Please write at least 15 words
Just round the corner from Queensway tube station. Fire alarm at 8am on a Sunday morning but this couldn't be helped!
I really liked the location and the amenities. The Underground was close, along with a nice selection of restaurants and Hyde Park. It was very well decorated and attractive. Some of the wait staff and the housekeeping could have been more consistent in their service. The housekeeper may or may not get to some of the details of our room each day. The restaurant waitstaff had new people each day, so there was some confusion in the dining room. Overall though, the leadership was excellent and professional.
Friendly Staff, very nice ambience Room decor looked tired.
Basic services worked and stay was without any hitches Overall atmosphere, which lacked warmth both in terms of interiors n attention.
Very close to Queensway. Shower was like dried up waterfall.
The hotel has a comfy atmosphere. the staff were friendly and helpful, and the location was excellent since it was close to Bayswater station (5 min walk) and Queensaway street with many international restaurants and convenience stores. The room and bathroom were extremely small. Barely enough room for one person to walk around. The corridors were narrow and claustrophobic, and the elevator was as small as a phone booth!
Great location, quiet room, staff friendly, historic building Horribly, almost comically small room; breakfast overpriced; almost no water pressure in shower
the building is very impressive. Breakfast and reception staff very amiable and attentive. Room was quiet. nothing springs to mind
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The beds were nice and the location is perfect for those who want to see all of London. The room we were in was tiny. There was barely enough space for the bed, let alone for two big bags. The water pressure in the shower is very poor and during the last two days of our stay, there was no warm water in the hotel. The boiler was defect and couldn't be fixed in time. The hotel taxi charged more then the pre-agreed price, eventhough we repeated the address twice.
we arrived at the hotel to find the boiler had broken and as such, would have to move hotel. To the hotels credit, they moved us to another 4 star hotel in a better location, the marlebone hotel just off bond street. So all was well after a shaky start. The grand royal did look a lovely hotel from the lobby, just a pity we didn't get to see the room.
Inexpensive, good location, modern fittings, quite stylish (until you looked closely), wonderful lobby, clean Plumbing was appalling - very poor hot water pressure, window wouldn't open and radiator was too powerful for size of room, v small room
Size of the room is too small
the room was great although very small there was no hot water at the hotel... in winter.... and I was only informed when I got there to check in.
Very nice and clean, fast check-in and out and very friendly staff Rooms are a bit small, but beautiful
Good rate, good standard, nice hotel Rooms far too small, shower did not work, no pressure.
Staff Very small room, not suitable as double. Gave up on breakfast, no glasses for fruit juice, no plates, and not much food left. We were not the only dissatisfied guests.
Staff was polite, location is great. Cleaning is at good standard. Value for money is well disproportioned, will not visit again. Terrible draft coming from the window next to the bed. Heating was not working so they fit a portable eating in the room. Shower facility very bad design, it gets overloaded and is not sufficient light on the bathroom.
I have serious problems with overcharging. I stayed there from November the 15th to the 29th. I first booked through booking.com for a week (November the 15th to the 22nd) so the Notting Hill Suites charged the first week of booking. I asked to stay another week and the receptionist said it wasn't paid and charged me two weeks instead of the other one I was asking for. After I realised that the first week was already paid and asked for a refund.The receptionist said ok and pretended he did the refund but it wasn't so.Then I asked again and he finally did the refund.The problem is that they charged me again for another two weeks. So if you are going to stay there, be very careful about what you pay, double check if they are not overcharging you.
Clean, excellent accessability, comfortable
the house and the room are beautiful, a great location near the underground, portobello road and its nice market. The fully furnished the kitchen is appreciable too for quick meals The shower was difficult to use,too hot!!! The internet was not working in the room or worked by 5 min periods and nobody to help. A light did not work and the coffee maker was out of order.
Location Room cleaned once a week and not sufficient
The staff were amasing and very helpful. I stayed three nights and then returned for an additional night at the end of my trip because the place was perfect in location, comfort and staff. Very impressed. I came from Australia and intend to use this as a base for business in the future.
It was very comfortable, particularly for the price we paid. Nothing, really, except the heater was somewhat noisy (but that's what you get in an old building, even when it's been nicely updated).
We loved the decorations and furnishings in the hotel and how close it was to the tube station. Location was very convenient for getting around London and staying in Notting Hill made us feel like locals. There really wasnt't anything we didn't like.
Nothing. No hot water supply and no one came to fix it at all. Poor service and management
When I found the accomodation the room was very modern well equiped and very clean.
Looks nice, very good value for money, staff is very friendly Rooms should be refurbished, double bed shouldn't be made from two single beds
The location of the hotel The staff were extremely unhelpful and unprofessional. I was very disappointed. We also had no hot water so could not have a shower which was absolutely horrible and for this there was no apology when I mentioned it. Our luggage was not held at the hotel, meaning we had to make a very long and tiring journey on the tube from Oxford Circus and back to place our luggage at St Pancras which cost us more money and wasted hours of the few hours that we had. We booked a room with a double bed and it was two single beds pushed together which was uncomfortable! I am 20 years of age and have stayed in many hotels around the world and CP was the worst experience.
breakfast was not so good
The non smoking restriction
very good staff and location handy double room supplied to small and no storage no climate contol as in cool air if required
Nice tub, and was very accessible to the tube, nice bed and very comfortable stay. Some of the wires behind the bed were still jutting out and should have been covered. The bathtub needed some repair work.
during our stay, we could actually hear the hotel guest in the next room snoring in the night as the walls are too thin. it was also quite noisy at night as our rooms were facing the street
The room was clean and not too small. Courteous staff even during a rush at check-in time. Location is good as it is close to a couple Underground lines and a 15 minute walk to Padington Station (where the Heathrow Express train ends). No Air Conditioning. Room was on the 3rd floor and the heat was almost stifling. Surprising given outside the temps were only in the mid 70's (F). They provided a fan, which made it bearable. They also limited the amount the window opened, making it very hard to get in fresh air. I would stay there again, but only when it is very cool out.
City centre, close to London's main attractions. Nothing ... except the "key" always failed! Not a big problem though.
Easily accessible from London Heathrow to Paddington (10 minute walk) and very good location for tubes into city centre or access to Kensington and Hyde parks. This is the third time I have stayed at this hotel. Bathroom slightly on the small side, and shower curtain leaked, but on the scale of things nothing major.
The location of the Hotel No Clear Policy for the extension of the stay for few hours ( 1 or 2 hours ) , the evening shift told me yes its possible they might charge 20 pounds , but the morning shift refused and ask for one day full payment :( and one more thing i didnt like in the hotel , they refuse to store the luggage for 2 hours :(
great location, free wi-fi internet I have no complaints
cleanliness and quality of room and fittings walls a bit thin so you could just hear the other guests
The hotel was very clean - cleanest hotel we've ever stayed in Lack of bar, but the small bed was worse (not a full double - must have been a 3/4 width bed). It was also very soft and sagged in the middle so we rolled towards one another and didn't sleep too well.
We arrived and we're booked in and then told that 5 he hotel was having renovations and we were being put in another of the groups hotel...told we could have early check in at other hotel. Into a car and 5 mind later at new hotel which was very nice but no early check in..compensated with free breakfast. On the whole good hotel but annoying be a use of the change and there were lots of guests in she position Not being informed of change of hotel
Excellent location, only 2 minutes to Bayswater station. I find the front office staff efficient. The lobby attendant helped me with my bag checking in. When I bumped into one of them on them on my way down, he took my luggage down . Hurray for wonderful service...And toilets and room are clean and odorless. Room is extremely tight, with a great plush double bed! Wardrobe is tiny. Good for 1 person , maybe 2 maximun! Well for the price, what can I say in London!
The location & accessibility to the city. Luggage facilities, laptop safe in room & complimentary internet access were excellent. Size of room - was quite small & no iron/ironing board
Most Amazing location, a minute walk to Bayswater tube Station. Great staff, fantastic service. Clean, well appointed rooms. A nice relaxed atmosphere. Bed dipped in the middle and the curtains didn't fully shut meaning the room was bright from very early.
very well located, two tube stations near the hotel, modern interieur. Very tiny room. I lived alone in a double room, so it was ok. I had to sleep with ear plugs (cause of the noise).
It is an up todate, modern hotel. Breakfast brilliant For the money I paid, I was shocked about how small the room was. I was dissapointed, about the ironing board.
Very good location,very cleen,very good performance of staff. Very very small rooms
My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on a sightseeing/shopping trip. I can be very picky about hotels but this one was excellent. The staff were very friendly and the hotel was lovely. The hotel was very modern and clean. The rooms were lovely and finished to a high standard. The bathroom was very modern and clean which we loved. The hotel's location was excellent; in a quiet street around the corner from a busier street and Bayswater underground. Couldn't fault the hotel at al and I look forward to visiting it again in the future.
The rooms are of good quality, but rather small, and very clean.
The rooms were charming and the space well-organised. The decor was modern and attractive. Breakfast was good and stocks of food replenished frequently.
Good location close to 2 tube lines. Close to Paddington. Great staff. Nice rooms although small. The designer did a nice job of using a small space. Definitely recently updated. Nice breakfast selection
the shower was red hot couldn't turn it down bathroom cold. bulbs had blown in room asked for them to be replaced still waiting !!!
The room has a really nice, modern design. Great location. Really good value for money for a triple room in this area in London. We will defenitely come back here again. They are renovating the breakfast room,so now they have a tiny little room for the breakfast,which is really crowdy at the weekend.
The staff on reception, particularly the lady when I arrived, were extremely helpful and welcoming. The room I was given was excellent. I wasn't huge, but it had a great cosy feel to it and the decor gave it a slightly luxurious feel, which was pleasantly unexpected. I was also pleasantly surprised how close the hotel was to Paddington Staton for the Heathrow Express (an easy 15-20 minute walk). All in all it was a great place to stay and I would definitely use it again. The cleanliness of the bathroom was acceptable, but could have done with a deeper clean. However I would still stay at this hotel again as overall it really was a great experience.
Very trendy hotel, very helpful staff, great shower. Convenient to Paddington Station for transfer to Heathrow, Room was slightly smallish and hence a wee bit claustrophobic. As a solo traveler it was no problem but might be if there were two of us.
The room was very elegant and the ensuite was immaculate. We were upgraded on arrival to a four poster room - everything was very clean and nicely presented. There wasnt much left in the way of breakfast when we went down but it was nice enough. The room we were given was right next to the reception, so anytime anyone came or went we could hear it all, which wasn't good at 3.30am! Didn't get any sleep at all that night. Asked the receptionist if we could be moved to another room becasue of those reasons and he said that it would be quiet from then on. Was very annoyed by this. And lift was very slow!
Good location. the staff is not particularly friendly or helpful; the bed in my room was very uncomfortable; the hotel is currently being renovated and there is ongoing construction work; the telephones did not work in any of the rooms; no internet access.
early check-out time!
the bedroom and bathroom were amazing! could have been offered real milk for bedroom for tea tray
Cleanliness, the location - silent and central. The room is stylish and modern. The toilet - difficult to flush and the bathroom is too small, however, clean and beautiful.
the hotel was perfect for us the reception staff where very freindly and helpfull a lovely hotel to stay can,t wait to go back .
Cosy and very nice hotel
The Staff were very helpful.
Nothing. No English breakfast in England. Bread and coffee only and start from 8.00am.
Simple booking My room had very noisy air-condiitoning fans outside that ran all night and prevented me getting a good night's sleep.
always open... good cleaning of rooms not very good breakfast...
The staff was nice and very helpfull, and the toilets were faily clean. The location was good. The room was very small. It was also cold in the nights. The breakfast was very unsatisfaying. The bed was uncomfortable, you could feel the springs, when you lied down. The pillow was hard as rock. The wind passed right through the room, and there were doors slamming often, right in front of our room (fire door without a pump)
That it was a great location, clean, friendly. i like everything.
Location, location, location staff, no room cleaning, no coffee/tea set, not hygiene set
Very close location to the metro station, clean and refurbished rooms Breakfast would have been better but the price was ok (6 pound per person)
The staff were excellent very helpful and even if they couldnt help with our enquiry they found out for us. There was nothing
The room was sparkling. I had the best nights' sleep I have ever had in a hotel - the temperature could be controlled from the room, and the woindow left open if desired as the room looked out onto a very quiet square. It was lovely to have a view of greenery in central London. The staff were very polite, greeting us at the door at all hours of the night, which made us feel safe and looked after. No
- location - the fact that we had to pay at check in...don't they trust their guests ?
Nice little hotel in a great, quiet location. There is NO Fitness Centre and I was told I had to pay for Breakfast when it was included. It costs 15 GBP (If you pre-bopok and pay in cash) for breakfast and it was not worth the price. Very small dinning room.
The rooms were clean The rooms where very small! Had to climb over husband to use restroom. Also felt that it was very expensive, no breakfast included, no bar/lounge. Had to make 1 collect call and the hotel charged us $45.00 for it.
the design was excellent some of the staff couldn't answer to any of my questions about the hotel, my room was next to the elevator and I could hear if someone used it, the towels I've got wasn't washed (it was brand new, but not washed)
facility is goood
The hotel was clean and the staff were polite
The location was perfect! When we checked in we were told we were given an upgrade. Not sure what that really meant, we were on the basement floor so we had no light, and it was actually quite sunny during our stay in London. Our bed was uncomfortable and we both would roll towards the middle. Non stop noise all night, either from the air conditioner, or the lift or other guest it was a very noisy stay. The staff was very friendly, and I understand they want to improve, my suggestion is never tell a gust that they are being given an upgrade and then put them in the basement.
The location was great. Near the Bayswater Tube and walking distance to the Portabella market. The room was decorated beautifully and on the first floor overlooking the park. Very quiet. The staff was very accomidating and friendly. The bed was not the most comfortable and the cost of breakfast was high. We went elsewhere.
rooms were really nice together with in-room facilities. Very quiet and comfortable. No bar or restaurant was surprising considering the cost. Communal areas were spartan and not very welcoming. TV reception was terrible which wasn't too big an issue as it meant I didn't have to endure the X factor!!!!
The size of the room and bathroom (for London standard) Excellent location Breakfast was very basic
the receptionnist was very nice the size of the room. even though we were staying 4 nights i think they gave us one of the if not the smallest room in the hotel
The hotel was situated in a nice quiet spot with pleasant, clean rooms and friendly staff. Breakfasts were ok, but often ran out of plates, or cutlery, or hot water and had to wait for resupply. Not really well organised in that respect.
We had a room where the air conditioning was exiting and was noisy all night and also very hot! Poor service, not English speaking staff, poor value for the money!
The location Everything was ok actually
good location - close to tube stations/shops, friendly staff the world's smallest room (could not move!), pictures on website not at all like actual hotel, very basic decor (far from "luxurious, tasteful and elegant" as advertised) basic breakfast, no complimentary book in room as advertised, only 1 teabag on hospitality tray in room, constant background noise of generator outside
The location was okay and the hotel was clean. The staff was particularly unhelpful and not attentive. No one would look at us, let alone say hello when we entered the lobby. Our room was a "family room" with four beds crammed into a room meant for two. If you can't accommodate four people then don't say you can. We were also in the basement next to the breakfast area. Not only was the set-up crew noisy at 6AM, our smoke alarm went off at 7AM because of toast in the toaster.
Every thing was o.k No
Very nice hotel and excellent hotel staff!!! Thank you for a pleasent stay!
The staff were friendly and efficient but the best feature was the location - close to Kensington Gardens and Bayswater tube. The room was beautifully clean The use of blankets seems to be a bit of a time warp especially in London.
Stayed here with my 16-year-old son for three nights; nice area; desk staff was courteous; we were able to check in a couple hours early; lots of food markets and restaurants nearby; this is a fine/functional hotel-- nothing tremendous but nothing horrible; a good value for $100 per night this close to Hyde Park There was some street noise as groups of people staying in the surrounding hotels were walking up and down the street at night; rooms are small, but what I expected for a four-star hotel in London
stuff was really nice, and building is very beautifull - all this stairs and location is comfortable enough - hyde park in 2 minutes walk, 2 tube stations next line clearness of the room. when we arrived we found some litter in the wardrobe and during our stay. and sound isolation - we could here everybody doing everything, especcially in the corridor
The staff Tube noise was fairly significant. Also, the bathroom was extremely small in the single room.
Pleasent and helful staff. The hotel is clean and comfortable
location, staff, style room to cold, heating not working, air con broken
It's a very nice and comfortable hotel. It's near the underground and near Hyde Park and near to some nice restaurants and shops...The staff was very helpfull and friendly... It's a very nice place, though the room was not very clean and there was a lot of noice...people started painting very early in the morning and there was a lot of noice...
Some great friendly staffs and the location was fabulous. I will Definately stay there in the future. The room I booked online was not what they gave me on my arrival. The size of the room was so small and didn't reflect the double room I had payed for.
Staff was really helpful and nice. Tasty candies at the reception :) Very small bathroom and only hot water in the shower, but OK for the price.
Breakfast was good. Staff were helpful and efficient in a pleasant way.The hotel is in an excellent position for safe walking access to everywhere or finding transport when necessary.The bed was comfortable and the roomwas a perfect temperature with an opening window! It was very good value for money.
Very close to many shops, staff kind. The web wireless doesn`t work in rooms in the basement.
very convinient location: nearing 2 subway stations, Tesco and various chinese & italian restaurants. nearing Hyde Park where is the best place for walking and jogging. average breakfast. bad sound-proof. too narrow single room, uncomfortable bed.
Location. Close to the public transportation. My room was on the ground floor. You can hear the underground, loud and clear. It's really unaceeptable. Perhaps rooms in the first floor or above would be better.
Location was great! My room was very small over looking the AC units on the roof but I was on the 1st floor. Bathroom was also very small. I wouldn't choose to stay more then one night unless they have bigger rooms
the staff were really helpful and friendly i found the room a little hot and didn't want to listen to air con all night (but this was just a small thing
It is not noisy, very quiet No every things good .
The staff was very friendly. I arrived around 11:30 and my room was ready. The room was small by American standards, but expected size for London. It was well appointed with nice linens and a lovely bathroom. The window faced an interior roof space, and not Hyde Park, but this is pretty minor in the scheme of things.
The location was perfect for me. Two tube stops very close accessing the Circle, District, and Central lines. Ten minutes walk to Kensington Palace; both Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens are across the road. There are many ethnic restaurants within 5 minutes walk. Nice Shopping Center 10 minutes walk. Very good ice cream shop next door! Nothing
Right across from Kensington Palace Price of hotel does not include airport shuttle. Airport shuttle has to be arranged in advance or at the airport. The room we stayed in was so small it could barely contain our luggage and ourselves at the same time. Shower is trecherous. View from window was the next building's rooftop mechanical system. Front desk not very helpful.
The location and staff on check in were great Furnshings in our room were a bit dated.
Staff is helpful. Very close to tube. couple of pubs not far. Hyde Park across the street. !!! During a breakfast thieves stole a bag from a coupple in the !!! restaurant. Victims were foreigners. Lost all their money and !!! passports. Got a lot of troubles instead of having fun.
Hotel was a ideal location for London with underground next door
The location was great (next to the tube and on the other side of the street Kensington Park). Breakfast was also very good! Perfect place to stay for a city trip! Bathroom little old, everything works but it is a little bit old
Location is great, close to tube station and to many restaurants. Hotel is clean, staff is very nice, restaurant inside hotel is great. Room a bit small, phonic insulation is not that great, Wi-Fi did not have coverage in the room, disconnecting frequently.
proximity to tube station and hye park
Room was comfortable, warm and quiet. The location is really good with being only minutes away from both Bayswater and Queensway Tube (just a few shops apart from each other).
It is very central, the stuff are very nice and helpful. The services are good Rooms are a bit small and a bit noisy
Great value for money
I asked for a quiet room and got one. Zero noise, except for that of doors closing in the corridor, which is unavoidable. This is the quietest hotel I have found in London, after many tries, and I will definitely return. Also, the reception staff are all exceptionally pleasant and obliging.
The room was comfortable and clean. The walls were well sound-proofed and we had a quiet night. The breakfast was adequate.
The locationi was great and the room was larger than I expected. The bathroom was modern and very functional. Some of the staff left something to be desired in the way of customer service.
Reliability, no queues for breakfast, adequate breakfast to start off a new day, staff all knowing what to do and having practical answers to all querries, good feeling when returning from a long london day, all facilities working effectively even if without frills. Our best hotel experience in 25 years of annual visits to the capital Not much really, poor tv channel choice perhaps and need to organise space well as the room is comfortable for only one large piece of luggage, but nothing compared with some rooms in other hotels we experienced in the past.
clean room very small bedroom and a little shabby tho clean
Staff @ reception were attentive - our room was extremely hot and heating was centrally controlled so we couldn't operate it from the room. Receptionist turned off heating and our 2nd night was much more comfortable. Room too hot but rectified immediately we asked for heating to be turned off - central control only.
Exceptional location in Notting Hill and courtesy of the staff. The hotel needs a renovation.
just 2 mins walk from Notting Hill tube station. Light and clean room, well equipped.
bath with hydro massage - the bathroom in general night receptionist was particularly unhelpful and rude
I was surprised given the excellent reviews received by the hotel to find a slightly ran down establishmentin need of some serious updating. Perhaps my views were coloured by my bad exerience with my stay but perhaps not. The first room I was given was quite adequate, if small. I was then moved to a different room because of a fault with the lighting (easily fixable it turned out). The "new" room had to be the worst one in the hotel! Low lighting, no work surface, desk or table, very hot, and no shower, just a hand held spray. I left the hotel a day early. On the positive side the breakfast was wxcellent.
Single rooms were decent size and very clean, good location, good tvs and wifi signal, courteous staff
Cozy and friendliness of the staff. Would be nice if the cover of the furnitures and carpets got an upgrade.
Clean room, bath tub and large beds. If price is lower, it is much better.
Good all round service offering and attention to detail
the hotel staff and attitude
the hotel have good place in londno too closde to undergraund and hayd park . that hotael is good for 2 night only
The staff were very helpful. I liked the easy 24-hour access. The room was comfortable, if rather small, and its facilities were as expected. The breakfast was good and offered the option of a cooked breakfast. The price was rather high, but it is in London and quite central, so perhaps that was not a surprise.
The room was warm, very clean and comfortable. The shower had loads of hot water and again very clean.
Good location, good size of the room, small kitchen in the room, hot water and good temperature in the room The room was in the ground flor and near to door and in the morning noice from door was too big
Excellent room with beautiful large bathroom. Really good breakfast Air-conditioning was not working when I arrived but this was quickly rectified
Helpful staff Room clean, generous amounts of tea & coffee. Too mant scuff marks on wall remote was missing for TV outrageous prices for the mini bar
Modern, sleek appearance of rooms...loved the art, although the rooms could have more items on the wall. Loved the self-serve breakfast with a multitude of food options. Biscuits for tea and coffee would have been a nice option for the tea tray in the room. Also, there was no flat sheet on the bed; however, there was a fitted sheet and a blanket, which was slightly disconcerting because hotels do not always launder their blankets. I wondered if I would be sleeping under a dirty blanket so my partner and I chose to sleep on top of the blanket for that reason.
There were no tables avaiable when we went down for breakfast, when we asked for a refund on breakfast (as we had to be someware)we were refused and told to complain to the maanger who conviently was not there at the time
Bathroon was clean and shower was lovely. Room service was very good. Clean towels and sheets every day even if we left the towels hanging up! Window did not open and no view due to being in the basement, window only looked onto surrounding walls. We like air in the room at night which we could'nt have due to not being able to open a window. Also our only way out to the exit was a lift, we were'nt shown any other way-what about if there was a fire?
Comfortable hotel in a good location.
Modern hotel, central for sightseeing proposes Maintenance is poor
Impressively well run and clean You really should learn how to make tea. Tea-pots and boiling water are not too difficult to provide.
