Liked: The location next to Hyde Park in Bayswater is lovely and it is only a shortish walk into Oxford St. Also the curtains around beds are a very good idea they make you feel far more private.

Disliked: The kitchen had one cup, one chopping board, a saucpan, a fry pan and about three plates total equipment; other stuff was available from reception if you were prepared to leave a deposit but this was a little annoying. Staff were rather lackluster.

Liked: Good location - near Hyde Park and the Tube (Central, Circle and District line). You've also got 2 supermarkets (Sainsbury's and Tesco) and all the main food chains (McDonald's, Burger King, Pizza Hut, Starbucks ..)

Disliked: The walls are extremely thin, so it's difficult to fall asleep at night, because you can hear everything.

Liked: Nothing (it was that bad)

Disliked: NEVER GOING BACK! - Staff very unfriendly - hotel manager even more unfriendly (and rude). Most of guests are unhappy and look for another accommodation. there are no plates or silvery in the kitchen (you get those against a deposit at the reception) - You also only get a hairdryer against a deposit at the reception - plugs only in the hallways - Kitchen dirty - old fridges always full - They let people gather in front of the hotel - so it's extremely loud in the rooms looking to the front of the hotel. I travel a lot and this was the first time I had such a negative experience.
