Tiny room good for a night's stay
Read the fine print: there's no lift and no help, so heaving my suitcase up 5 flights was no fun. The tiny room and bath was immaculate and well appointed, but water pressure in both the tiny sink and shower were quite low. For one night before catching the train at Paddington, it was fine, but I wouldn't stay longer than that. Also, the subway nearest the hotel was closed so I had to pay for a cab from Paddington station. Given a second chance, I'd just book a closer hotel to Paddington. On the plus side, the area is convenient with lots of shops, restaurants, parks, etc all within easy walking distance and felt very safe.

Kensington Gardens Hotel, London
Great Location. Nice place. Reasonably Priced.
Very happy with my stay. More like a guest house than a hotel. I was comfortable in a single room but it was very small. I am not a big person. If you are a large person I'd inquire first before booking. The receptionist was very nice. Reasonably priced by London standards considering the location. Very easy to get to from Bayswater tube station.

Basic room with some issues
A basic hotel room, very small with just the basic amenities but clean and quiet. I had a few problems though: I) there is no lift and carrying my luggage to the 4th floor wasn't fun II) the water pressure in the bathroom was very weak and it took a lot of time to get warm III) the reception closes at 6 and you have to go to a nearby hotel to check in after that time
