I loved this hotel... great little hotel & even has breakfast included... it is close to Bayswater Station and not that far from Notting Hill station also... 2 blocks from the shops in Bayswater so it was good for everything... reasonably priced also!!!! & it has rooms for 3 or 4 people!!!!!!!!
Unique Quality: cute breakfast, internet available, hairdryer in room... just great!
Directions: take train to Bayswater Station... turn left out of station and then take second left and follow street up 3 blocks and the Comfort Inn is tucked away right there!!!!!!
The hotel is clean although pretty "tight". However all the less pricy accomodations in London are not so spacious...tiny to say ...
The price was ok considering that we were staying in Notting Hill and we were very close to 2 Underground stations...
We paid 75 pounds / room/ night in Sept 2007, but we found hotel rooms for 60 pounds per night with shared bathroom....So it was pretty ok.
You MUST book it in advance cause it's much more expensive if you just show up and you might also find it fully booked.
Small as it may be, the hotel is pretty full constantly.
The Continental brakfast is included in the room price and it's...tiny but ok ( coffee/ tea, marmelade and some ham and cheese w/ toast). You can pay extra 4 pounds and get the English breakfast which might be too much for a "foreign" belly ( fried fat ham, omlette, beans and fried sausage).
Unique Quality: Very good location and pretty ok staff. The receptionist was Romanian...so what more could we ask :o)
Anyway, the staff in most accomodations will be Eastern European (Russian, Polish, Romanian, Bulgarian ) or Indian :o)
Directions: Notting Hill
My wife and I stayed in the Comfort Inn three nights late July 2007. Being regular hotel visitors, we never stayed in a hotel this bad before. There are so many problems with this hotel, I hardly know where to begin.
The hotel is noisy, not to say VERY noisy. Allmost all interior walls are partition walls: thin metal frames covered by thin plasterboard.
The hotel is unsafe, not to say VERY unsafe. Allmost all fire doors were permanently blocked, see attached image. Even worse was our experience with the fire alarm, that went off one morning of our stay. According to our observations, the hotel staff did not respond to it at all. The guy at the reception told my wife and I that the alarm was probably false. That was all. Very risky and very unprofessional.
The hotel is dirty, not to say VERY dirty. The only good thing was the absence of flees, though I had expected them. Look at the images of the bathroom, they tell it all.
The rooms are small, not to say VERY small. Our room was exactly 3.6 x 2.5 m including the bathroom. Other rooms were equally small, though the double bed room tend to be slightly bigger than the twin bed rooms. Our twin bed was only 1.2 m wide, with three sides enclosed by walls. I had to climb over my wife to get in and out of the bed. Like the guest rooms, the breakfast room was extremely small: an estimated 35 to 40 m2 for about 35 seats and a buffet table. Around 9 a.m. guests had to wait for up to 10 minutes in an uncomfortably small corridor before seats were available.
The views out of our window was terrible, not to say VERY terrible. It consisted of an incredibly small and dirty shaft that almost completely lacked daylight. Look at the image. Incredible! To be honest: rooms on the front side of the hotel enjoyed better views.
Is there anything positive to write about the hotel? Yes. Its location is not too bad, and the facade looks promising. But that's VERY, VERY insufficient for me to recommend this hotel to others. Don't go there, there are much better hotels in this price range.
Clean beds and towels,
Choice of breakfast (Continental or Full English),
WiuFi Internet thought a bit expensive.
Even smaller toilets
Small breakfast room, very crowded at times,
No adapters for electricity outlets, you have to give a guarantee of 5 GBP per adaptyer.
Unique Quality: Very close toGreek Church.
Directions: Get outof Bayswater Tube station walk left till Moscow road, turn left walk till Illchester street, turn right walk till Prince's square and follow sqyuare.
Less than 500m from Bayswater station.
My sister and I went to London in February 2004. A long awaited trip for us! - We stayed in the Comfort Inn Bayswater. It was a really great location. It was right down the road from Paddington Station, and there were lots of restaurants right up the road. Yet, it was far away from all the hustle bustle to be very quiet at night. We were prepared for small rooms in the UK and indeed our room was very small, but adequate, and nice and clean. The staff was helpful and polite. I would definatly reccommend this location.
Unique Quality: A small car park area.
Directions: Near Hyde Park and Paddington Station
I spent 2 nights in this hotel. The hotel is reasonably well located, clean and welcoming. Check-in and check-out was painless and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Internet access is available at reception although I never used it.
Short-term car-parking is available outside the hotel and there is a lock-up car park about 5 minutes walk away so driving there should not cause a problem.
Nearby is Queensway where you can find a number of shops and bars as well as the Bayswater tube station.
In summary, a nice hotel which is well located for the centre of London and Heathrow airport. It's best to shop around on the internet to get the best rates
Directions: 5 minutes walk from Bayswater Tube Station
We are spending three nights in London and the travel agent has booked us into a place called Comfort Inn Bayswater. Can anyone tell me anything about this property and also how central we will be. Can anyone also comment on a reasonable must do list for three days in London.
The location is good. It is close to the tube station.
The hotel rooms tend to be a bit small.
I would recommend:
Hyde Park (which would be easy since it is right near your hotel)
Kensington (my favorite neighborhood; the Victoria and Albert Museum is here too)
Knightsbridge (could check out Harrod's if you want)
Westminster (Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, London Eye, Westminster Abbey, etc.)
Further down the South Bank (Tate Modern, etc.)
Buckingham Palace and St. James's Park (literally right next to each other)...Trafalgar Square is not far away from these too.
Regent's Park and Camden Town if you have time...
Have a wonderful time in London - I miss it greatly.
I can't believe I forgot to say this - but one of my favorite famous sights in London was the Tower Bridge - while a bit out of the way compared to the other areas in central London, it is so worth the trip, and I did it over and over again. Also, if you would like to visit the Tower of London, you can fit it into the same day as Tower Bridge. It's very important to budget well the time you have in London though - so much to see and do, and spending time in the Tower of London and the museums takes at least a few hours to enjoy it all. :-)
Thanks for your tips. It puts it all into perpestive for me which is great.
I recommend The Island Restaurant and Bar near Lancaster Gate for a great meal out. See my London Restaurant tips for full details. Have fun while you are here.
get a frommers london book. lists all the highlights, restaurants and has lots of maps. also go to the TKTS booth in leicester squars for half price west end theatre tickets
MUST do at ALL costs....
- Tower of London
- See/take photo's of Big Ben
- Ride the London Eye (may need to book ahead)
- British Museum
Other attractions that should be seen/done
- St Pauls Cathedral
- Buckingham Palace (changing of the guards is 11.00am i think)
- Trafalgar Square (though Nelsons Column is being cleaned)
- The Monument (hundreds of stairs)
- Thames cruise - see Tower Bridge
Additional point to note: If the trip is only 3 days long, the British Museum would count as a "nice to do" rather than an essential, I'd say. Plus points...it's free. Downside...it's huge! You could spend a whole day just wandering around in circles which really eats into your sightseeing time.
Thanks so much, we do intend to see a show and the cheaper the tickets the better.
