    I love London’s white stuccoed terrace houses, they look so grand! I believe that very few of them remain unconverted to multi-units dwellings. Housing is so expensive in London and rent has to be paid each week.

    The decor in this former hotel is highly unusual imo, i guess it was created when it was a hotel. I don’t think (but i may be wrong) that it would have looked like this originally.

    I stayed in this area (Queen’s gardens, near Bayswater, behind Lancaster gate area, in a hostel that is now a grand hotel: for 3 weeks in 2016. It’s a nice lively area (Queensway is a bustling street with varied shops and several “exotic” shops and restaurants — we would go every other day smoking hookah in a Morrocan tea house), and in the case of the present building, just steps away from Hyde Park.
