THE BIG SLEEP

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 30, 2014


This must be the most sold hotel in London. I don’t mean rooms, I mean the hotel. I have stayed here several times and always under a new owner. This is a very good hotel by London standards. Very good. It is currently owned by Hilton Doubletree who have tried to jazz up the hotel and the rooms. The reason that it is such a great place to stay is that it is an older hotel with big rooms that have not been cut in half like so many others. It is also set away from the road and the rooms on the back are absolutely silent at night. Make sure you request a room at the back. They look onto the back of some residential homes.

The rooms I have had have old massive air-conditioning units, but the climate control works. They have always had excellent mattresses and I have no doubt this continues under the Doubletree brand. My rooms have always been large and functional. Plenty of closet space and living space. The bathrooms have large bathtubs and showers with loads of water pressure. They even have an iron and ironing board in the room. There are 2 Tube Stations within 5 minutes walk, so it is a great hotel for pleasure or business.

I have always enjoyed staying here. In the past the décor has been dated, but who cares? I always have a great sleep, a great shower with my coffee in the morning and great service from the staff. This is one of the best hotels for the money in London. No matter who owns it.

Comfortable budget option

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 7, 2010

I've also stayed twice at this typically comfortable midline London hotel. It’s comfy, quiet and clean. The full English breakfast included with most rooms is rather decent compared to some. It hosts lots of groups so it can be busy for such a small hotel, but it’s still generally quiet. An entrance to Kensington Gardens is right across the street.

Good hotel in good location

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 23, 2008

We stayed here for two nights on our last trip to the UK, in a standard double room.

The room was a good size, clean and well serviced, with all the usual amenities, and for London the rate is very reasonable. The hotel is not spectacular but I can recommend it.

Unique Quality: The main advantage of the hotel is its location. A short stroll to two Tube stations, to Kensington High Street, to Queensway and across the road from Hyde Park. Plenty of small shops, cafes and restaurants are within very easy walking distance.

Directions: On the main Bayswater Road at the western edge of Hyde Park, just to the west of Queensway Underground Station.

A good base

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 25, 2006

Stayed here for a weekend and had a great stay. Service couldn't be faulted and the staff were more than helpful.

I would recommend this hotel as its a good base for seeing London. You are only a few minutes away from the Tube and obviously from there you can go pretty much anywhere in London.

I also got a good deal for a weekend stay (around £80 per room/per night) which is good for this class of hotel in London. - (walk up rate is around £160 per night midweek)

Unique Quality: Hotel is set in a nice area just across from Hyde Park.
