Reem Hotel is a three star hotel. It's a great value for money as we payed 70 euros for a double ensuite room.
The Room was small but clean and of course it only has the basics, a small TV, a closet and a small office with mirror. The coffee/tea maker was a nice surprise. Some rooms come with a safety box. There were weird noises during the night as the building is old and the wooden walls, doors and floors dont help when it comes to noise. The bathroom was also clean, with some soaps but nothing more.
The room was cleaned daily and new towels were left at the bathroom
The small area at the entrance is open 24 hours, there was always someone there to talk to, ask for directions etc We were leaving there our room keys every time we were exiting the hotel but I didnt like that they were giving back the keys without asking any names etc (i mean the staff that didnt already know us)
the small room downstairs was tidy and clean.The continental breakfast from the buffet icludes milk, corn flakes, marmalade, cheese(but no ham), butter, yogurt, croissants, fruits(babana/apple), coffee, chocolate and orange juice(not natural). If the breakfast isnt included at your room price you can pay 5 pounds per person. The same price you pay at some pubs of the area for a full english breakfast.
The area is full of souvenir shops, cheap restaurants, shops and pubs. We noticed many greek groceries, cafes, taverns and even a greek church! The greek community probably was settled here some years before.
Directions: 5'walk from Bayswater or 7' from Queensway tube stations. Bayswater area is located north of Hyde Park.
I stayed here for 2 nights and can say honestly I wouldn't go back. Even though the room was clean the bed was tiny.
My main complaint was the attitude of the staff. Completely uncaring and distant. Not a smile in sight!
One morning at breakfast I was yelled at in the dining room for sitting at the wrong table.
When I moved off to sit at another I was again yelled at for choosing the wrong one. Obviously I was suppose to know where to sit! Silly me! Not a good way to start the day and doesn't do much for the appetite either.
Really there is no excuse for rudeness and guests should not be treated in such a way.
Also no porterage. The staff just sat and watched me lug my heavy suitcases in and out.
Unique Quality: They give you a free newspaper each day and there is a nice lounge bar area for smokers.
Directions: Bayswater. The location was good. Just off Queensway with Hyde Park and Bayswater Tube nearby. Also Whiteley's shopping centre is just around the corner.
