Having acquired tickets to the event in Hyde Park, featuring Elton John, who unfortunately had to cancel thru illness, my partner and I decided to take a weekend in London, 12-13 july 2013, picking this hotel due to its closeness to Hyde Park, in fact it is closest to Kensington Gardens which after a brisk walk merges into Hyde Park.
The hotel was fairly priced for central London, close to Lancaster gate tube station, keep in mind, this tubestation uses lifts not escalators to get from platform to the surface.
The hotel was clean, and our room was on the ground floor. The room being on the small size but perfectly acceptable for such a short stay...however the view from our room was that of the rear of the hotel, and other rooms windows. It proved very quiet, no noise from the main Bayswater road, few streets away..The air con worked overtime, due to the freak weather we had, and kept the room wonderfully cool..
The restaurant served breakfast, and on the whole the selection was very good, my only gripe being a hotel of this size, needed more tables, first morning we had to eat in the lobby area near to the bar, the tables of which were so small it necessitated me putting the tea and coffee pots on the floor.. also you will no doubt eat cheek by jowl with other guests, the tables being a few inches apart ! The staff were more than helpful and always smiling.
Would I stay again, most definetly ! But its not the best hotel I ve stayed in London.
