Value for money, very simplePosted Nov 14, 2013
The hotel is very good value for money if all you're after is a bed for the night! Really good location, five minute walk from the tube and five minutes from the centre of London. Breakfast was included but it was a tiny space for the amount of people staying in the hotel and there was just bread for toast, tea and some warm fruit juice. Fine as it was "included" in the price, would definitely not have paid for it though. Asked to leave our bags somewhere safe in the hotel for an hour or so after check out so as not to have to cart them around London before the train home, we were told just to leave them in the breakfast room.....which was full of people, or just leave them in the corridor?! Slightly annoyed at that, even offered to pay extra for a late check out to keep our bags safe but nothing would be done. Apart from that the hotel was fine especially for the price! Perfect if you just want a bed to sleep in and not spend a lot of time in the room

Value for moneyPosted Sep 20, 2013
Cons: Stair carpet
Location: Lots of shops, eateries, pubs close by. Hyde Oark 5mins away and Poertabello markets 20min walk.
The room was clean and tidy with a small shower cubicle in the ensuite which was also quite modern. The hall way and staircase carpet was pretty dirty and we were in the top floor up 3 flights of stairs, not for the infirm or elderly. Breakfast is served in a small basement room and is simple but adequate. Overall it was good value for the price in a good location.l

Notting Gate HotelPosted Aug 23, 2013
Pros: Its Position and the small size. Not an impersonal large complex and good value for money
Cons: Possibly look at different sittings for breakfast so people can fit in
Location: Fab location. Tube 2 minutes walk. Bus tours start just out side, local shops market and cafe
A good small hotel, clean and in a good location for sight seeing. near tube and bus stop including one for tour. Breakfast is self help and sufficient and although the room is small there are not many hotels at budget price providing this facility. The room was small but perfectly adequet. Very helpful staff. My daughter and I enjoyed our short stay.

Lousy hotelPosted Jul 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
We had a familyroom for five, it was very small and very very hot, impossible to sleep in without a airconditioning but clean. The breakfast was toastbread, hardboiled eggs and marmelade, lousy!

Basic - needs improvements, has limitationsPosted Jul 2, 2013
They ask for cash payment and levy additional charges for payment by credit card which they do not tell you about in advance. There is no lift in the hotel so if you are on the 1st or 2nd floor you will have to haul your luggage upstairs (and there didn't seem to be any porters). The room I was in was basic to say the least and there is no air conditioning. The floor had been damaged at some stage and just infilled with polyfilla so didn't look great. There are no shelves in the bathroom so you are forced to put toiletries on the floor. There were no curtains, just a single beige blind that still lets quite a bit of light in so if you can't sleep unless its a darkened room this won't work for you.

Strange hotelPosted Jun 29, 2013
Pros: It was clean. Good location. TV had good reception.
Strange room in the basement. A hole was cut out of the floor because the ceiling was so low. So you stepped down into a "ditch" in the floor (for lack of a better term) and then stepped back out. No washcloths, no hangers for wet towels, no phone, no toilet paper holder. Wireless only worked in one part of the room (on the tiny desk). Hall way to room was cluttered with boxes, laundry, and stuff.

Smallest room everPosted Jun 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
I booked this hotel room because it seemed cheap and in an easy to get to spot.; about 5 minute walk from Notting Hill Gate tube. From the outside, the hotel seemed pleasant and the chap on reception was polite enough, too. He gave me my key, took payment and all was fine and dandy. Picked up my bags and gazed towards the stairs where I saw my room (number 26), halfway up the first flight of stairs. An ideal place for a cleaning cupboard, perhaps. The irony was that most cleaning cupboards are the size of a small country compared to the room I was designated. There's more space in a two man tent than room number 26, let me tell you. The sheets were dirty, I found a few long hairs in my bed, whose headboard is conveniently placed directly underneath the TV. Its one saving grace was the bathroom which seemed clean, although two of the three light bulbs were blown making getting in and out of the shower a bit of a hazard, especially given the lack of bath/shower mat. However, the single worst bit about this room was the door that, seemingly, was made of single ply balsa wood. You may as well have had a blind there and given the odd location of the room, combined with the complete disregard to any sound proofing, I'd have slept as well had I crashed on the couch in reception. It might be a nice hotel otherwise but I sincerely recommend a rethink of room 26. If you are given the keys for this room, I'd ask for an alternate immediately.

At least it was close to the tube station.Posted May 26, 2013
Pros: There was one great benefit to this room, situated on a landing between floors: It was quiet! No other rooms were nearby.
Cons: Just about everything.
Location: It's near the Notting Hill tube station and Portobello Road. There are some very good non-touristic restaurants on nearby Westbourne Grove..
OK, I chose the least expensive Expedia hotel in the Bayswater area, and my view, when I'm in London, is to be out as much as possible and retreat to my hotel for sleeping. However, this room was barely large enough for a single bed. I had to climb into or over my suitcase in order to get around. There was no drinking glass, no hangers (but why bother?--there was no closet), and what I assumed to be the bath mat was a smaller towel. There were also no adequate curtains on the windows, which faced walls. And the water faucets were, well, counter-intuitive. My guess is that this room, situated on a landing between the main floor and the upper floors, had been carved out of a vestibule area--which was why it was so small. Overall, the hotel ambiance was tacky, depressing, in great need of refurbishment.

good for the cheap price considering the locationPosted Mar 8, 2013 on Hotels.com
the room was tiny, not enough room to put 2 suitcases and they didnt have a store area for luggage anywhere else in the hotel. The service was always good. Polite and helpful. They provided freeze dried coffee and tea, kettle and a shampoo and soap. All was good except there was only one of each, i had to ask for more and they happily provided more for me. Breakfast and free wifi came with the room. The wifi was the best wifi I have had at a hotel. Very fast and always stayed connected. The breakfast was continental - nothing special. The single bed room had sheets that were dusty and not properly washed, But for the price I would book again. Location is 2 mins from hyde park, 10 mins oxford street-mayfair, 5 mins to notting hill. Westfield is a 10 min bus on the same road. Parking is expensive....
