“Credit card fraud after making my reservation here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2011

I made an online reservation at Vancouver Studios at the end of October for a summer vacation I am planning. A week or so later fraudulent charges for parking and bridge tolls in the London area started appearing on the credit card I used to secure the booking. Several hundred dollars were charged in one day and I've now had to cancel the card. I have emailed the hotel directly to tell them, in case they are being victimized by one of their own staff.

Stayed November 2011, travelled solo

I, and members of my family, have stayed at Vancouver Studios on a number of occasions over the past five years. I have only good things to report about this charming hotel. The staff are lovely and they can't do enough to please. The rooms are all distinctive, clean and well-appointed. The mini-kitchens in each of the rooms are great, especially for the single traveller who may not feel like eating out in the evening after a hard day in the galleries and shops. There are loads of eateries in the area and the hotel is near two tube stations, but not too close to be affected by traffic.

We were a party of 3 and had booked a room with foldout couch and were happily upgraded upon arrival to a massive 3 bedroom 2 bath with garden.The staff were all very friendly and helpful.The main part of the hotel decor is very cheery and had us peeking around all corners to see what was there. Our room was modern, clean and fresh, seemed to be recently updated. Location is fantastic, close to Paddington and the underground, incredible variety of restos nearby open late, And the area was quiet-lovely to come back to at the end of a long day!

I stayed at Vancouver Studios for five nights. Although you won't find a lot of frills at this little hotel, it's clean, quiet and well-managed. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Just a couple of blocks from Queensway, the location is very convenient. My room was definitely on the small side but I was comfortable enough.

One odd little thing was that there was towel rack in the bathroom. I thought that to be strange.

Anyway, at 92 GBP per night, I was very happy with this hotel.

Room Tip: My room faced the courtyard. Although the view - or lack thereof - was a little depressing, it was...

Vancouver Studios is one hotel that gives you more than what they promise. The location is great with many restaurants, fast food joints, cinemas (Odeon in Whiteleys), shopping mall (Whiteleys is 5 mins away) and lots of other shops like Boots, Superdrug, Footlocker, Ann Summers nearby. Bayswater road/Hyde Park is 350 metres away with many buses. Also Queenswater and Bayswater tube stations are 5 mins away.

The rooms are compact and adequately equipped with everything to make your stay very comfortable. The bed is very comfortable with lovely pillows and soft duvets. The linen is softly fragrant. This helps in giving you a relaxing sleep. The towels are soft and fluffy. Toiletries like soap, shampoo and bath gel are provided and are of good quality. The bathrooms are small and the shower cubicle is tiny (26" X 26"). But it was ok for me. A large person could have a problem.

The kitchenette is compact and fully equipped with a stove, fridge, microwave, pots n pans, crockery and cutlery, dishwashing soap and scrubber, etc. I found the kitchenette very convenient and this was my main reason for choosing this hotel. There are many grocery stores nearby (Tescos, Sainsburys, M&S Food) to help you stock up on groceries.

A special mention of the staff of Vancouver Studios: Damian, the Manager, is friendly and very helpful. The other staff at Reception, Sarmite, Gita, Marco, Adrian are always serving you with a BIG smile. They are very very helpful and are willing to accomodate every whim and fancy of yours. They are a sweet bunch of people. They truly make you feel at home. The maids who clean your romm do an extremely good job. Their cleaning is spotless!!! Everything in the room looks bright and new!

They have central heating but no airconditioning. You can ask for an electric table fan which is quite sufficient.

The only drawback of this hotel is that there is no lift. I was aware of this and had therefore insisted on booking a room on the ground floor. I stayed in Room no. 1 which is their Garden Studio. This was a very beautiful room with doors that open into their lovely garden at the back of the hotel. Zeus, their freindly cat, was my constant companion, and i loved that!

I will definately stay there when i visit London again and would highly recommend this Hotel.

Room Tip: Try to book a room on the ground or first floor as there is no lift.
