Oyster Hotel Review
Modest luxury and Victorian elegance with boutique quirks
Originally built in the late 19th century by former Member of Parliament Sir James Bailey, this hotel has retained its owner's namesake, some original Victorian furnishings, period fireplaces, and the original elevators. The original central staircase sweeps up all five stories in grand Victorian style and beautiful stained glass windows provide a wonderful sense of history. All of this atmosphere sets the stage for a relaxing stay within easy access to other areas of London. Rooms are a deliberate mix of old and new, combining traditional oak furnishings with modern amenities like flat-screen TVs and iPod docks. Olives Restaurant and an intimate club lounge -- for guests of club or suite level rooms -- provide space to relax without leaving the property.
Across the street from Gloucester Road tube station, in a quiet quarter of the Kensington district
The Millennium Bailey's is located in a quiet, wealthy quarter of the Kensington district. The immediate surroundings of the hotel are safe and welcoming for exploring on foot, by tube, or even by rented bicycles. The neighborhood is a mixed population of native English, immigrants, tourists, and wealthy businessmen who all breeze through the area on a regular basis. While Gloucester Road itself doesn't have much happening, it is bordered on all sides by West London's most popular shopping and dining districts as well as some local charming museums.

Rooms of all shapes and sizes styled with traditional charm
All of the rooms at the Millennium Bailey's are different shapes and sizes, as well as individually decorated. There are many original Victorian antiques in the 211 rooms, juxtaposed with modern touches like flat-screen TVs and iPod docks. The overall feel in some rooms, though, is a tad bland. A building with this much history is bound to have certain quirks, such as the fact that bathrooms only have one sink, and hot and cold taps are separate.
