Only a short walk from Lancaster Gate station and easy to find. Fairly quiet would stay again. Reception staff very friendly and helpful. Just a short walk and you are in Hyde Park. Breakfast was good plenty of choice.

Just stayed there and the room was really tiny and since the bathroom has no heat and are all tiled it was freezing, like sitting on an icecube the toilet was. Very clean rooms and nice service.

The hotel is located very near the Lancaster Gate underground station, and only a block from beautiful Kensington Gardens. But it's far enough away from the center of London so that the neighborhood is not inundated with tourists. Special treat -- very large, fluffy bath towels. Buffet breakfast is ample -- eggs, ham, beans, mushrooms, fresh fruit, yoghurt, cheese, cereal,... More

Well situated hotel just off Bayswater Road and very close to Lancaster Gate metro station. My wife and I enjoy to walk and this is an ideal location to explore Hyde Park, Mayfair, Oxford Street etc. My only criticism was our double room was quite small.

We stayed here for 2 nights and chose this hotel specifically as you did not have to pay until you got there. As it wasn't payday until just before we went, this was a good option for us as we were still able to book other things to do before we arrived. However, once I'd booked the hotel, £135 was... More

This hotel is located right by Hyde Park and just a few steps away from the underground train. An easy walk to shopping and restaurants. So handy! The rooms are small, but make up for it in cleanliness, newly renovated bathrooms, a wonderful breakfast and such a friendly staff! I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
