Thought I booked The Shaftesbury in Sussex Gardens but my bad - so I walked up .7 of a mile to this Shaftesbury .Very clean but the single room was so small . Location is 100 yds from a busy shopping street and easy access to the beautiful Kensington Palace Gardens

I was transferred to the Grabd Royal Hotel, which is a sister hotel near The Shaftsbury. Great staff in both hotels. Great location.

As all non-American hotels are, it was a "miniature" room, as we called it. But it was nice. They don't actually have queen bed rooms, it was definitely a full and not super cushy, that was the only disappointment. The hotel staff is excellent and had fresh towels or a cup of ice to our room within minutes when we called for it. Complimentary wine, fruit and chocolates. Couldn't ask for more for the price.

I was moved to another 'sister' hotel not in the original area. Not happy. Suitcase couldn't be opened fully in the room.

Nice hotel near Hyde Park

Pros: Convenient to the Underground and quiet
Cons: Beds could be a bit longer
Convenient to the Underground stations Queensway and Bayswater. The rooms are small but comfortable however the beds are a bit short for a 6ft tall person. Service was consistent and the the room was very clean. Quiet neighborhood area.

Tiny Room but Good

Pros: Location and service attitude.
Cons: Cannot help...room too small.
Location: Good location near Hyde Park and there is a lot of restaurants and shopping in the area.
The single room is tiniest, smaller than any room on a cruise ship, but well decorated and equipped, and it is good that they have air-condition (not many places in London).
