The hotel is located on a quite, dead-end street off Cleveland Square, ensuring an unusual level of quietness and calmness for Central London. Queensway Street is less than 10 minute walk from our doors. Queensway (formerly Queen’s Road) is a bustling cosmopolitan street in the Bayswater district of west London. It contains many restaurants (particularly Chinese, Arab and Mediterranean ones), pubs, letting agents, and high street stores. Near the northern end of the street is the multi-storey Whiteleys Shopping Centre, on the site of London’s first department store, opened by William Whiteley in 1867. The store was awarded a Royal Warrant by Queen Victoria in 1896. The facade of the current building is from 1911, but the building itself was demolished and rebuilt in 1989.
