Stayed for a night to spend some time Christmas shopping and an evening at Winter Wonderland Hyde Park. We had a room up grade to a junior suite. The room was spacious and clean with a seating area and front facing looking over Hyde Park. The shower was fabulous, plenty of hot water and a great shower head. Breakfast was... More

Great location for the Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park (Turn left out of the hotel towards Marble Arch which was a 20 minute stroll along the Bayswater Road) but the rooms are in need of a refurb. The 1st one was above the kitchen fans and was noisy. So I asked to be moved to another room was much larger... More

The exterior of the hotel has a nice look to it. Inside it is Victorian and could be something quite lovely if was properly maintained. Noticed an odd smell upon entering the hotel (after lugging my suitcases up the entrance staircase as there is no porter). Was greeted by a friendly young woman at the front desk. She checked us...

Nice room, if a little compact but all amenities needed were there including an iron and ironing board. The bed was huge and very comfortable. Can't say anything about the food on offer as we didn't eat there, but the place was very clean and the security was excellent - not that we needed it.

The hotel is located by Hyde park and Bayswater road. The underground is close by and Paddington station is also within walking distance. The service at the hotel is good and the staff is pleasant. Our room was by London-standards quite big, though the bed was a bit smallish. A few negatives was a leaky faucet and a shabbily mounted... More

We have stayed at the Thistle Hyde Park on about 5 occasions, we love the closeness to Hyde Park for our morning walks. The rooms are always spotless with clean fresh linen and towels.

The pluses for this hotel are the excellent location. Negatives, really, are the size of the room we had. Although we had not booked an executive room, for £150 for the night, I would at least have expected some complimentary still water. The room was very small and the air conditioning was exceptionally loud. My husband is a very heavy... More

Stayed here for an awards ceremony at a nearby hotel. It is a nice, quiet and small hotel with a friendly atmosphere. Bathroom was definitely more old than traditional, with some damage to tiles and plaster and filler patch up jobs around the bath, and the shows head needs descaling.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Thistle Hyde Park dates from Victorian times, with a cosy, relaxed atmosphere reminiscent of a Pall Mall private-member's club. A refined, intimate building, it is a comfortable base from which to enjoy the nearby West End, Oxford Street and Mayfair. Within walking distance of Lancaster Gate and Bayswater Underground stations and a literal stone's throw from multiple bus stops, you'll find it easy to get from the hotel to wherever it is you wish to visit in central London. What's more, you have the luxury of two of London's finest public parks just across the road from the hotel entrance - perfect for a morning stroll, weekend picnic, or letting the kids run off all the excitement of a holiday in the City. ... more   less
