Good Value for Zone 1 Location
Posted Sep 20, 2016
I was travelling to London alone so didn't require much for my stay. The hotel's location is great; right in posh Nottinghill and on both the Central and Circle lines. The hotel exterior blends in. The room itself was a bit like a dorm room with a bed, TV, table, and chair, but was very clean and all I needed for my stay. The bathroom was a surprise. It looked like it was recently renovated and was very modern and clean with both a tub and shower. For a 3 star, I was pleased to note it had a hair dryer and complimentary toiletries. The breakfast was also a pleasant surprise made up of coffee, tea, juice, cheese and meat slices, croissants, toast, and fruit. Again, more than I expected for a 3 star and it got me well started on my day. The staff were pleasant, but strictly adhered to the 2pm check in time. They were fine with leaving luggage behind until then. My only other request was for an iron which they readily provided. I would suggest anyone with disabilities makes that clear when booking. My room was 4 floors up, and there wasn't an elevator. Even though I was travelling light, the walk up the stairs with my luggage was a bit of an effort. The common areas are definitely tired looking, but my plans were to explore London, not hang out in a hotel. Anyone expecting a more refined accommodation experience should look in that direction and expect to pay for it. Overall, the hotel was an excellent value for its location, private room and bath and breakfast.
