From reading the reviews at Trip advisor, I booked the hotel here. Most of the previous comments were right on, A few Pros and cons Pros very close to a Whiteley (sp) shopping mall, in case you are into shopping, also within a block of numerous restaurants of all types and pubs. We thought the Standard Indian Restaurant was not...

We stayed 3 nights in this clean and well-managed hotel, checkin was quick, our room was simple but clean, didn´t miss anything except for a larger TV! Check-out was as quick and easy as well, and there was no problem to store luggage for a couple of hours, since our fligt wasn´t until the evening. Breakfast was a better than...

After reviewing this site over and over again, I decided to book us at the Best Western Phoenix in the Bayswater section of London.

I spent a week at the Phoenix in February. This was my second visit in six months. Again I was very pleased with my stay. The room was clean and quiet. The halls were quiet. The breakfast room was efficiently managed. Although the food was simple, it was fresh. I still think that fresh fruit (instead of canned) would raise...

Friendly hotel with some small pitfalls as mentioned by others. Overall though, if you're not paying full whack, great value in a convenient location. Plenty of restaurants and shops within a minute's walk. Bayswater Underground Station within about 3 minutes walk. I was happy with the included continental breakfast, which could be upgraded to a max of £6.50 for a...

This is an excellent budget hotel. For its price it is a bargain, in London. The single room is as small as in most London hotels (also in more expensive ones) but space is well-organised, so that you don't feel like squeezed in a sardine-box. The hotel is perfect for a short stay, if you are not going to spend...

If you're looking for a nice budget hotel with basic services this hotel is an excellent surprise. Unlike in many other cities abroad, in London the major problem with hotels of this category (3 stars or below) is the relative size and cleanness of the rooms compared to the price charged. If you're expecting amenities and spaciousness here (as I...

We spent a day and a half in London, and we stayed at the Best Western Phoenix hotel. The fact is that this was not a 3 star hotel as easyjet and hotelopia claimed it to be. I even wonder why Best Western chose this building to be a member of their family. The space given to us as a...

Staying in Notting Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighbourhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
