We got a basement room against our expressed wishes for a higher floor but overall the hotel was ok given its price range. Breakfast was pretty good. Wifi is available only in the common areas and is charged disproportionately (i believe free internet is a must in this day and age).

We were allocated a room in the basement which was dark 24 hours a day. The room was stuffy with little or no ventelation. It was so hot and stuffy (no aircon) I had to request a fan to keep air circulating. I was as though the room above was occupied by people waring hobnailed boots, their noise continued into the early hours so we were unable to sleep.The bathroom door could not be shut from the outside, the bathroom mirror was all rusty around the edges. The hotel has no bar or restaurant. Just the breakfast room. Breakfast was ok although nothing to write home about. We have stayed in numerous hotels in london paying about the same price but this certainly was worst and I honestly could not recommend it anyone.

On my arrival I realised that the TV didn't work. The receptionist told me that some of the TVs hadn't been updated for digital TV. I moved rooms but there would have been others that didn't have the chance to move. I thought this was rather poor for a hotel. The towels were clean but obviously old and some of them had faint stains. The bed was incredibly uncomfortable - I felt every spring in the matress and had to lay towels and blankets underneath so I could sleep. The breakfast was very average. Only white bread was available with small croissants and the bread rolls were very hard. Only tinned fruit was available, no fresh fruit. The best thing about the hotel was the location and the staff were friendly most of the time.

This is an old, run-down hotel, but it clearly used to be nice. More importantly, even if it needs a refurb and have some spots and bruises, the staff is very nice and friendly and the cleaning is impecable! The breakfast is ok, not impressive, but not bad. So if you are travelling on a budget, you will get great value for money at Bayswater Inn.

I do not understand how you can get the hotel your stars, when they "put" peoble in the underground rooms with bad beds, nearly no light, dirty furniture and most of the inventar in the bathroom were broken. We were three grown ups, and the double bed was only about 25 cm more wide than a single.

There was no access to the internet at the kiosk downstairs. It took 20 minutes to load the google search page and that ate our one pound. The mattresses were attrocious. Springs sticking up made it impossible to sleep so we used the quilt, doubled over as a mattress pillow top to soften the sleep. A new mattress can't cost that much! Please replace the mattresses. Nice place otherwise, great location.

We stayed at Bayswater Inn to visit family. Bayswater Inn is a nice and comfortable hotel with a nice staff. It is good value for money. Should we put anything on the minus side, the breakfast could be a little more interesting with a minor effort - but no complaints! We were all happy and will chose Bayswater Inn next time. It is close to Notting Hill and Portobello Road, boating experience from Litte Venice and a excellent location to all other places in London.

The Inn has a couple of outstanding staff hwo make all the difference. My first room was a single in the basement, the size of a monk's cell. The window was mostly around the corner, so very little natural light. I was moved upstairs after two nights to a spacious room with large window, looking over the back and therefore very nice and quiet. London hotels are generally terrible, and this was a really good value-for-money place to stay. BRING your own SHAMPOO as they have none. That said, there are plenty of places where you can buy shampoo. And tonnes of good restaurants.

My negative experience was mainly based on two factors. The person who greeted me at the front desk was curt and unwelcoming. I was placed in a basement room where the carpet was dirty, the air quality was poor, the reading lamp did not work, the door key was difficult to use, and the kettle was lined with a black deposit. The front desk staff told me that no other rooms were available, even though I was among the first to arrive after the 3 p.m. check-in time. They eventually agreed to move me to an upper-floor room after the first night, to a room that was acceptable and had none of the problems mentioned above. The continental breakfast, though very basic, included some very nice fresh rolls and the dining room staff were efficient if rushed. However, I was glad to leave at the end of my three-day stay, and I would certainly never go there again.

A very disappointing hotel, from the impatient and unfriendly reception to the dirty and insecure room. Our room window could not be locked and was accessible from the outside. A staff smoking area next to our room afforded us a smoke filled hallway. In terms of location, the Bayswater tube line is not the best - trains were few and far between in order to get to the Picadilly line to get into town. Won't go back, and you should stay away, too.

We were given room 24 in the basement: How can you offer such a bad room for such a price ? Dark (electric light needed all day), wet, and not very clean (specially the bath tub). We asked for another room for the second night. Fortunately the staff was nice and gave us a room on 4th floor which was good. The continental breakfast (included in fare) was so bad that we skipped it the second day: Bad bread (not crusty), no toaster, no fruit, no cereal.

In general terms this hotel is a good choice as it is well located, very close to restaurants, stores, a mall as well as close to subway and bus stations. The rooms are confortable enough, but I DO have three negative comments on things I think should be taken care of: 1) One of the persons at hte front desk is quite rude. At first I thought it was simply a case of bad quemistry, but I saw that same attitude with other two guests. She makes you feel like you have arrived into one of those "by the highway" motels. It was the only person with an attitude (I dont´n know her nme but is a middle aged, black haired woman). 2) the map Venere.com provides to arrive at the hotel is useless. With all the other 5 hotels I had no trouble arriving with the provided maps, but in this case I just had to walk for like 25 minutes under some rain, until I got to the hotel, after asking direction to at least 5 persons. 3) For the price this hotel charges, breakfast could be better (it consists of bread, juice and coffe). I had just stayed at a very good, about same price hotel in Rome, which offered complimentary buffet....maybe I just got used to being spoiled!

Staff were severe and unwelcoming. BLT Sandwich purchased in restaurant took at least 20 minutes - then contain one piece of bacon, small piece of lettuce and small piece of tomato. Breakfast was weak orange juice, rolls and jam!!! Hardly continential!!! Cereal, and anything else was extra charge. Sorry but have nothing good to say about this place.

The room was spacious and the neighborhood lovely BUT the halls and room reeked of cigarettes and raspberry disinfectant, the carpeting was dingy and stained and the staff treated customers as potential criminals. We had to carry a card with our name and room number on it to get our key from reception and we had to bring little breakfast coupons to get breakfast. Other customers had had their room changed and their room card was not returned to them. The receptionist found it but didn't want to give them their key to the new room because the other staff member did not write a new card. Although they had two computers for customer use in the lobby, they were out of order when we were there. We would NOT recommend this hotel.

First, we didn't even find the hotel because of the poor map attached to the hotel description. (Not even nearby living residents did know where to go.) When we arrived at the hotel, they told us it's not possible for us to pay with VISA, since we're staying just one night. After 5 minutes of negotiation with a poor english speaking trainee she asked someone - and - all of a sudden - it was no problem at all ("...if they want to pay with VISA, let them..."). Entering our room we realized, that it was not the double bed room we booked, but a room with 3 single beds, one of them a bit larger (1,20m). Asking for the room we booked they told us that the "large" bed in our room was the double bed we desired and that they won't give us another room. Finally, the breakfast was as lousy as the mould in our bathroom.

L'hotel si e' dimostrato ampiamente soddisfacente in tutti i suoi aspetti ed il soggiorno e' stato piacevole. Abbastanza facile da raggiungere, in una zona residenziale carina e piena di alberghi tutti vicini e tutti uguali fra loro (almeno dall'esterno). Il personale si e' mostrato sempre cortese e professionale. Colazione continentale nella media. E' possibile avere la "full english", con bacon, uova etc. ma ad un supplemento consistente. Camera sufficientemente spaziosa, ristrutturata da poco, e decisamente pulita. In realta' avevo chiesto una doppia e mi e' stata data una stanza per 3 persone....forse in 3 si sarebbe stati un po' strettini. Prenotando tramite Venere ho usufruito di uno sconto notevole sul prezzo di listino indicato, e, al prezzo pagato, il rapporto qualita'/prezzo e' stato decisamente buono. Ci ritornerei senza dubbio.

We had a triple so the room was reasonably sized and it is located by a nice park but within a few blocks of the Underground and lots of shops and entertainment venues. The one problem we had was NO PARKING is available, even for checking in. We had a rental car and they directed us to a parking garage blocks away. When we arrived it was 50 pounds for 16 hours so I parked downtown London and took the Underground back and forth. Quite a hassle. Pleasant stay outside of that...

When arriving to the Bayswater, I was told that they did not have a room for me and that I would have to go to another hotel. My sister had checked into this hotel a day earlier and they had a room for her, so I was confused as to why (even though I had a reservation with a reservation number) I was forced to go to another hotel. It worked out for me anyways because the other hotel I was sent to (The Pembridge Palace) was on the next street over from the Bayswater and was a much better hotel in every aspect (the breakfast was wonderful). My sister's room at the Bayswater was in the basement, was very small and the furniture and linens were old and not very clean. On several ocassions there were insects crawling around in the room! When she asked to be changed into another room, they said they did not have any rooms to change her into, and that she had to remain in this horrible room for the entire week she was in London! The breakfast at the Bayswater was not goo either. It consisted of some stale rolls and a beverage. Although the price of the room was good, the hotel was not. If you do not care about any of the problems mentioned above, then you can not beat the price for this hotel. But if you want any security in having a room when you arrive, and having a room that is half-way decent and free from crawling insects, then I would recommend finding a different hotel.

Due to the bargain rate we received, my husband and I tried to keep our expectations low, however there were some aspects of our stay which we found to be just poor customer service and/or poor business practices. Overall, the hotel was clean in apprearance but we did see cockroaches in our room. The hotel was extremely warm inside - the reception and guest rooms. It was almost unbearable. More than once the front desk staff gave us erroneous information (once it could've cost us missing our tour). My sister and brother arrived two days after us and by then the hotel was over-sold or something because they were sending everyone to other hotels. My sister and brother ended up in another hotel around the corner (lucky for them it was a lot nicer than the Bayswater).

It is very obvious, that the hotel has kept their focus on becoming a 3-star hotel by means of interiour e.g. tv and coffeemaker, but the service, cleanliness, breakfast and room only earn 1-star in my opinion. Go for a youth hostel instead.

we asked for a double and they gave us a twin.. only the third day the changed us the room. besides we had to wait outside the hotel (it was freezy!!) for 20 minutes because nobody was at the reception to open us. the price abd the place was anyway unbeleavable

I was visiting London with my two children. I wanted to find a hotel that was safe, clean, convenient and that did not cost a fortune. I found that in Bayswater Inn. It is very close to two tube stations and any kind of restaurant you could wish for. I have already recommended Bayswater Inn to a friend.

Excellent value for money. Very recommendable for the tourist traveller. The quality of the bed was not tip top, but this little minus is easily absorbed by general impression. Very welcomming staff, also made the kid feel specially welcomed.
