The area where the hotel is, is lovely, with a lot of gracious buodings around. The tube is easy to reach, and the hotel is very close to hyde park. My room (n°411) very large for british standard, my children one (n°413) was just enough for them. The continental breakfast was so and so, but our starting day, because of we had to leave very early in the morning, they give us a very poor breakfast: they could have done more. The crew at the breakfast area was very kind, less the one at the reception. My final vote is 7.5, if i should go back to London I will consider the possiility to book the blackmore again.

WE were allocated what was classed as a double room. The room was so small the washhand basin was in the bedroom as there was no room for it in the bathroom. When you sat on the loo your leg was up against the bath.We asked to be moved but were told we could not move until the next day as the hotel was full.The next day we were told to pack our cases for our move. When we returned to the hotel the receptionist handed us the key for our new room.They said our cases had been moved to the new room.But we had not cleared our safe which we told the receptionist, she got into a panic as our old room had been allocated to another guest. As we had our passports, cash and cards in the safe we became very anxious. We were told to go to our new room while it was sorted out. After 5 minutes the receptionist did arrive with our money, cards and passports. We should not have been put in this position and I think it was very bad management. The room we got was a lot bigger with a proper bathroom but very run down, wallpaper coming off the walls, generally in need of total refurbishment. There was work going on so the noise of workmen from 8 in the morning was dreadful. The dining room, bar and reception are all fine when you enter your bedroom you would think you are in a different hotel.

Very good lokation quite near Paddington (about 10min walk) and Bayswater and the lovely Kensington Gardens. I travelled with my teenage son and we stayed for 4 nights. I will definetly book at hotel Blakemore next time I visit London. Very good value for the money.

The hotel itself is nice, spacious lobby and friendly staff. It is situated within easy reach of London buses and underground. Walking to Paddington takes about 10 minutes. With the windows closed, the surroundings are quiet, not much traffic in the street. Now comes the BUT: I booked an executive single room and it really was the SMALLEST room I have ever come across. With my armes streched I could almost touch both walls.And the room was stuffy, even with the radiator turned off and the windows open all the time it was quite hot. In NOVEMBER!! Maybe if you don´t book a single room the rooms are bigger, but the one I had was really claustrophobic and thus the value for money was not satisfactory.

I booked an executive twin which ended up being much smaller than the photographs suggested.The shower recess in the refurbished bathroom was minuscule even for my petite size, and it was a challenge not to flood the bathroom each time the shower was being used. The room was also very hot and stuffy despite the fact that the outdoor temperature was very cool. However, the hotel location was very convenient, breakfast was quite good and staff was pleasant. The concierge, in particular, was very friendly and helpful

the rooms are as small as it is very often mentionned in the comments written about this hotel so no surprise. It is particularly well situated in London, near Kensington Gardens and close to the underground and to several bus lines. Very convenient to easily move around from a pleasant place. I did appreciate also the electric kettle in the room ! VERY good relationship between price and quality. Information not given on the website : they keep 20 £ as deposit if you pay cash till your departure. They are also two interseting exchange offices close to the hotel : one in teh same street, one close to the underground station.

The bathroom was really small, the ceiling very low and the sink was in the room. Generally speaking, the staff was friendly, but one night I asked my room's keys at the desk in the hall and they were missing. The person there asked me more than twice if I really left the key there, and when he had no other choice, sent a waiter with us in order to open the door. The waiter asked me again if I really left the key in the hall and he suggested I threw it to the litter!! This made me feel really angry. Finally the key appeared the night after, and they told me it was in the reception all the time.

Staff at Blakemore is extremely professional, businesslike. They hardly smile when offering their help to guests and each time we had a request it was like they were annoyed by our interrupting them in their work. This is the only thing that, as a tourist, we have perceived as unsatisfactory: they do not seem to be very customer-oriented, but rather work-oriented. Is this a new trend for staff in the tourism business?

We had read some comments about both the cleanliness and size of the rooms. Our biggest concern was whether or not the room would be clean, knowing that in London the rooms would be small (and that was OK). Our room was clean, had no complaints other than it was facing the road and we had to sleep with the window open since the heat was turned on for the winter. The bed also seemed to be a rollaway, and was not all that comfortable. Overall, I'd say we got a very reasonable rate so we were happy with it.

- The GOOD: 1. I paid 47 pounds, no breakfast 2. Clean place, TV set (but you have to like the BBC cause no cable), next to Queensway - The BAD : 1. Never seen such a tiny room (well, corridor? 3m x 2m). I guess that sufficient if your are alone and looking for the best location/price ratio. It really looks like a boat cabin! 2. Never been in such a loud place : The underground train runs right under your bed every 20 minutes and wakes you up at 5:00am. After that, a guy fixing the roof was making crazy noise from 8:00am on, on Saturday morning! The coridor is also very loud since the cabin door is thin. Bottom-line: Would be OK for a cheaper price, but get up early (probably after the first couple of trains passing underneath)

For me is the location of the hotel very important.

Nice hotel with a very nice lobby bar where you meet other nice guests!! and a nice clean bed in a rather small room, but that is quite common in english hotels! I am very satisfied with my stay. Good hotel to an reasonable price.

Die Lage ist super, dicht am Hyde Park und an U-Bahn und Bus, dafür auch sehr günstig, aber sehr hellhörig und sehr sehr laute Klimaanlage und Lüftung im Bad. Die schicke Eingangshalle täuscht, Zimmer sehr klein. Sauberkeit gut, Personal sehr freundlich. Frühstücksbuffet ok, Continental im Preis drin, English kostet pro Person und Tag 4 Pfund extra. Das ständig laufende Wasser im Bad wurde trotz mehrfacher Reklamation innerhalb der Woche nicht repariert. Fazit: für den Preis gut, wenn man nicht lärmempfindlich ist.

For a hotel in London prices were ok - although high in comparison with other cities. Rooms small, but usually you do not stay there too long so this did not cause problems. Safe was in the closet. Big difference between the atmospere of the lobby and the rooms (we had 2 double and 1 single ...). Very good located with lots of shops and restaurants within 5 mins footwalk.

I had forgotten how poor the English customer service standards are. Rooms are adequate although the hotel only had 2 irons and you had to leave a 10 pound deposit and fetch it yourself. Do not ever let them organize a taxi for you as it will cost 3 times the amount a london cab would cost. Employees not friendly!!

Service was very good. I guess London is supposed to be expensive but in comparison to my hotel experiences in all other countries, the amount paid provided little in terms of a nice room. Nothing was horrendous, it was just a run down room without a refrigerator or air conditioning. We slept well and when we requested sheets for our bed (there was only a comforter with which we could cover ourselves), service was very prompt.

Nice looking hotel from outside, old tiny rooms inside. The hotel looks really clean, at least our room and the public areas were. Apart that nothing good can be said about rooms. Tiny, oldish, the sink is in the room under the mirror with the the typical British two taps, single windows. Every noise from around is heard inside the room, the lift, the neighbors (luckily they were not noisy. At night the light from the corridor can be seen around the door as it doesn't fit, pretty old that too. The staff is just OK, nothing remarkable good or bad. At 49£ for Sunday night and 62£ the rest of the nights NOT including breakfast I find it's not good quality/price, it's just acceptable when one doesn't have better choices. And I noticed they ask for 99-109£ for the Saturday nights which is highly exaggerated. The breakfast at the additional 9.50£ is pricey. Overall the hotel has two assets: the cleanliness and the location. At 49£ I would stay there again, at 99£ I would not.

The walking distance to Blakemore from Pattington Station was a little longer than I expected. In our reservation we had requested a double room, but when we got there we were given a large room on the 3rd floor with 3 single beds. However this was quickly amended once I returned to the reception area, where we were given a double room on the ground floor. The room itself was rather basic and small. As you enter the room there is a short hallway with the bathroom situated to the right and ahead we found the width of the room just about enough to accommodate the double bed. The staff members at Blakemore carried out their job fine, but there were no indication nor signs of them wanting to make you feel more welcomed in their efforts. Our check out time was 11am. Having decided not to have breakfast at the hotel (pricey at £9.95 per person) we would relax and get ready to check out at the time stated instead. However from 9am and every 20-30 minutes that followed we had staffs knocking at the door for room service. Had I took it any other way I'd almost think they were trying to hurry and usher us out! Overall, for the one night stay Blakemore wasn't too bad and it's reasonable priced for a 3 star hotel. Only thing is, it didn't look nor feel like the 3 star hotel that it's meant to be.

Pleasant hotel in residential area, though Saturday night revellers into the early hours from nearby pubs made sleep difficult as my room was on the ground floor on the main street. Room size good for hotels of this price range with decent-sized bathroom. Bed far too soft for comfort, however. Breakfast is expensive at £9.95 for cooked English and £5.95 for continental.

If you are a tourist and you would like to go in the parks (3 minutes from Hyde Park), this is the hotel for you. If you do not need to stay in the hotel and, as a tourist, you will stay always out, the single standard room is ok but believe me the space in the room is ridicolous. Moreover my room, fifth floor, was close to the lift and I heard everything...all night long...So, do not go in this hotel if you are there for business.

View from the window from 5th floor over the roofs, quite nice. Bathroom clean, high water pressure, big bottles of shampoo and bathgel, clean towels. Nice staff, spacious reception (like real hotel should have). Quiet- there is the tube, which has some big vent in the backyard and you can hear it and see through there till 00.30, but this noise is not annoing. I recommend this place.

I booked this hotel because it was 3 stars with satellite tv and breakfast included. The only satelitte tv was in the bar, I had to argue to get breakfast and this was no 3 stars. We were put in a smoking room, the windows leaked cold air in January and opened to a 4 story drop, the water bubbled in the shower when they took a shower upstairs loud enough to wake us up. Away from the public areas the carpets were worn through and it was generally shabby. The staff gave in on breakfast but I don't think cereal and toast costs them 5.95 pounds a day! Location was fine. This is the first time I have been disappointed with a reservation through venere.

The Blakemore has a wide range of prices. I booked their cheapest type of room (47 pounds). Staff made it clear in their attitude and service that I was a "low price" customer, deserving less kindness and attention than high-end clients. Cleaning staff were friendly, reception and supervisors were arrogant. // L'hôtel offre une gamme élargie de prix. J'ai réservé une chambre au bas de la gamme et le personnel me l'a clairement fait sentir (attitude moins agréable et moins serviable qu'avec les clients occupant des chambres plus haut de gamme).

The single room was small, but not too small. The bathroom was new with normal size wash-basin and mixed tap. In double room the wash basin was in the room and there were separate hot and cold taps. The location is good, the nearest station is Queensway, so it's quite far from Paddington. The bus station is also very close and we preferred bus to tube. I would definitely stay there again.

I was very satisfied with the whole booking proces and glad the price was exactly how you said in the first e-mail. The whole communication with venere.com was very smooth and without problems. Hotel was fine ( except the noise from the street - the windows are plain and it was not possible to close them properly , in plus the heating was not possible to turn off ) . But we had fun and I wish to venere.com and Blakemore hotel lots of good customers in future . My best regards Jan Cejka Prague - Czech Republic

Had booked 3 single rooms, but this was not available upon arrival for the first night. The service in the bar and restaurant were appalling. The service by the staff at the reception desk was very good. At check out we were presented with a bill that was much higher than the quote we got when we made the reservation. We had to pay for 3 single rooms even though we had to stay in a triple room the first night.

I expected small rooms but this one was ridiculous. I believe we were given the worst one because of booking it online at a reduced rate. It was small, the bedspread stank, it was dirty, and the bathroom as so small you could stand in it, turn around, and use the shower, toilet, and sink at the same time. The shower was a stand up one and the curtain did not reach the floor, so no matter how hard you tried, the floor flooded. The doors are made to SLAM shut (so you don't forget to leave them open I guess) but in the middle of the night when people are partying or coming in late, the slamming doors are a REAL pain. The worst part were the people who worked there. They were unfriendly and unhelpful and almost rude many times. When we complained about the room, they offered another one which was only a bit bigger for another 30 pounds ($60) per night. We stayed because we were visiting our son and he lived two doors down and it was convenient but I would NEVER recommend this place to anyone!

I went with two of my friends to London for the weekend.We stayed in Blakemore hotel after checking the reviews in venere. Our room was more spacious than we thought it would be (2nd floor, rooom 227) but the toilet was small (as everyone else said in the reviews). Other guests told us that 4th floor rooms, mostly single rooms were not as nice so be careful when booking!The hotel had an excellent location,walking distance from tube station, Bayswater(use circle and green line). The staff is brilliant!!!! They made our stay even better. If you go there look for Rafael and Roberto, these are the nicest guys ever (give them my regards pleaseeeee)!! Overall we had a great stay in this hotel and I would highly recommend it.

We booked a double room but received a twin room. The staff were helpful and offered us another room immediately. The public areas had a lot of cigarette smoke. The hotel is very close to a major street about 3 blocks West, with a shopping mall, post office, many restaurants, and two subway stations with access to at least 3 lines all in easy walking distance. It is also very close to Hyde Park.

I thought the quality of the furnishings in the room was pittiful. Our bedspread was frayed on all the edges, so much so you could see the lining and the spread had been sorn through on the top in quite a few places. Had to ask for glasses and they were not very forthcoming with us wanting a porter to help with our luggage. The receptionists (most) did not have good english and found it very difficult at times to get out point across, which was unbelievable since we were in London. this particularly was noticed when we kept rining to get exact directions on how to get to the hotel, which wasn't easy, we could not nor could they understand us. Very disappointing. Each day the makeup of the room got worse, so much so, that I thought someone must have been sleeping on the bed during the day.

El hotel es el tipico de 3 estrellas economico...moquetas, tamaño habitacion, cuarto de baño, mobiliario etc etc...pero todo limpio, ordenado y recogido. El personal la verdad no he tenido ocasion de tratar con ellos, solo pasaba por recepcion a entregar o recoger la llave, pero las caras eran de amabilidad y abundaban las sonrisas que eso se agradece mucho. Muy centrico, tan solo a unos metros de Hyde Park (Bayswater) y con parada cercana de metro y bus.

I decided to stay in this hotel after having read some previous reviews. The Blakemore Hotel met my expectations. Maybe this is not the Ritz Hotel, but the room rate was very honest as well as the services provided. The room was not really big, but very clean and warm. There is a tea/coffee facility in the room that my girlfriend and I really appreciated. I work in a hotel too, so I know what means to be busy, and the people at the reception were always very busy. Although this, the front desk staff was friendly and looked in your eyes while handing your room-key (greetings to Erry and the others). The location of the hotel is very good, close to hyde park and a 5 minutes walk from two underground stations (Bayswater and Queensway). There are many shops and a commercial centre in the surroundings, as well as several restaurants. I would definetely choose again the Blakemore Hotel, if coming back to London.

The staff was VERY helpful and very competent. The hotel itself was old and not very nice. The rooms are "aired out" after smokers use them, which does not really get the smell out of the walls and curtains.

It was a bit more of a walk than I'd anticipated (almost 3 miles from Oxford Circus), but after being on a plane and a train, walking wasn't a bad thing. Wonderful people, cozy room, clean bathroom. Very pleasant.

- Clean bedsheets, clean bathroom. - Noisy(street traffic and other rooms) - Lack of mech. ventilation. - Apart from that, everything was functioning at the hotel room. - Some distance to the nearest tube, appr. 10 min. walk. - Didn't try the breakfast as this was Pound 9,50 extra, so we found it more convenient to eat at a near-by breakfast cafe. - All in all OK to be a budget hotel.
