Good, clean hotel with all basic necessities
Great location near Bayswater tube station, Hyde Park and Portobello Road. Just enough to the side for peace and quiet for good sleep. Clean compact room with all basic necessities packed in. Good heating and water pressure. Bare bones continental breakfast, a bit crowded. Front desk what you expect, breakfast room staff friendly but a bit curt due to workload, super helpful bar staff and great housekeeping.

There was a door in a hallway right next to my room. It closed with a very loud bang waking me up throughout the night. In the morning, when people started walking to breakfast at 7 am, the door slammed every couple minutes. I could not sleep well that night.

Great hotel!
Overall, we loved our stay at the Phoenix. Clean, comfortable, easy to get to. Our only complaint was the bartender. Seemed put out when I asked him what Pimms was, he located the bottle, but when I asked him how to mix it or drink it, he just shrugged and said he didn't know. The next night, even though the information said we could get snacks in the bar until midnight, at 11:00 he said the only thing he could get us was a toasted cheese sandwich. Seemed unhappy when we said okay. Other than that, the hotel exceeded our expectations! Just would have been nice to have a friendly, personable bartender.
