Close to Bayswaters tube station restaurants, grocery stores closeby, all within 3min walk. Room was clean, liked the floors (no carpets!), bed was comfortable, pictures are accurate. The lift work doesn't work consistently but it didn't bother me. If you have health concerns or lots of heavy luggage, this could be an issue.
Check-in is down the street, but it was easy and seamless. Staff were always there.
The breakfast was included in my stay and had very limited options -not worth it. Fortunately coffee shops are close by. Overall I would stay there again.
It's across the street from Kensington Park/Palace and within walking distance to the River Thames and Big Ben via Buckingham Palace and Westminster Cathedral (about three miles). Breakfast is okay, there is a bar in the afternoon/evening, but Internet access is horrific if you need to use your computer; phone access was good, but not if you have to do any work, and it's only available in the sitting room next to the lobby.
Limited restaurants in the area, so eat before you come back to the hotel.
This lively residential and business area borders Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens where you can stroll along canalside streets and check out the houseboats and historic Victorian homes. Plentiful shopping opportunities exist at Queensway and Oxford Street. Paddington Station, a 19th century building, provides a gateway to towns in the west of England, including Oxford, Windsor, Bath and Bristol.
