“Nice location,clean and cosy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

We stayed for 4 nights. The hotel is old but the room is big with 3 big window face to hyde park. Very quiet and comfortable. The underground is around 5 minutes walk distance. The best thing is the internet is free and super fast.There is also city bike near by very convenient for visitor.
We took heathrow express to paddtion station then took taxi to hotel it's just 10 ponds. The hotel restaurant even offer 24 hours service which is good for late night check in. We would love to come back and recommend to our friends.

Dear Reviewer,
Many thanks for taking time out to share your feedback. I am pleased to know you found Thistle Hyde Park's location suitable and the room quite and comfortable.
Since last year, Thistle’s London hotels are offering complimentary internet to all its guests and recently this fantastic service has been spread out to most of its 36 hotels in the UK that too at an upgraded speed of up to 100mbps.
I look forward to welcome you and your recommended friends in near future.
Warm regards,

We usually try to stay in apartment when we visit London but, having left booking this time to the last minute, we had no luck and so opted for a hotel. We wanted to stay close to Hyde Park and in the general Notting Hill / Bayswater area and were very glad to have found the Thistle Hyde Park.

We stayed for five nights in July and found the location to be ideal. Close to two tube stations, a bus stop out front and directly across the road from the Park, we couldn't have wanted for better. Our room overlooking the park was very tastefully furnished and most comfortable and, despite being on a busy road, was very quiet.

Breakfasts either in the dining room or on the front veranda were more than adequate, although the service was a little slow on some mornings. The Thistle Hyde Park may not be the cheapest London accommodation option, but that is to be expected given the standard of facilities and the location. All in all this was the ideal place to stay for a short London break.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a street view.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. We arrived late to Heathrow and even later to the hotel since the Heathrow Express was out of service. After traveling for many hours we were hungry and hoped that they had some food at the hotel. At the front desk there were a smiling gentleman that called the bar or kitchen to check if there was possibilities for food since we arrived so late. The kitchen was about to close, but since we arrived in the last minute they made us some sandwiches. It was perfect. The room was big and clean. The bathroom had a combined bathtub and shower. The breakfast was ok. Not very big but enough to feed some hungry people like me for example. Toast, eggs, bacon, beans and some yoghurt and other stuff.
The hotel is not far from the Paddington station and Hyde Park is just across the road.
I would recommend this hotel for friends, couples and business travelers.

While on recent trip to London to visit my daughter in Notting Hill chose to stay at Thistle Hyde Park. Directly across street from Hyde Park, 7 min walk to Kensington Palace. Conveniently located to Notting Hill. I had a single room which was perfect size .. very nice marble bathroom ... very clean ... air conditioned .. I requested a fan for room since I am hot natured and staff showed up in under 5 mins with a great one. Staff very friendly. Will definitely stay there again ... I think two nights including everything came to about $700.00 .... not at all bad for London ... especially with this great location.

Beautiful quiet setting overlooking Hyde Park. Very warm welcome from Katarina on reception who was very informative about the hotel, gave us a map and explained where we were and ringed the nearby attractions. I said that I hoped we had a room with a view over the park upon which she said that we had been upgraded to a room on the fourth floor. The room and the view were very pleasant and the bathroom spacious and luxurious. It was 30 degrees outside but the air conditioning left the room perfectly cool. Complimentary mineral water in the mini bar. The only minor complaint was the quality of the cheddar on the cheeseboard we had with room service but this was very quickly taken off our bill. All in all a very relaxing two night stay away from the hustle and bustle but within a short walk of Oxford Street. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room 401 is a lovely twin bedded room.

Booked into the hotel for a 65th birthday treat, was not disappointed. Staff were lovely we were upgraded into a suite, given chocolates and complimentary drinks when we mentioned it was my husbands 65th birthday and we were visiting as we used to live in Lancaster gate.

Location was fantastic looked out over hyde park, tube station 3 mins walk away and taxi's ordered by the hotel were very competative. Room was stunning and staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

Easy access into centre of London and just a great time. Plan to visit again at Xmas.

I looked at many London hotels on the Internet and settled on the Thistle Hyde Park because of the look of the hotel, the location and the price. Also they said they could accommodate three in a room. Our stay turned out to be everything we were looking for and more. The hotel is beautiful. The room was lovely, very spacious, set up for three people and had a great view. The best part was the hotel staff. They were very friendly and helpful, especially one desk clerk in particular who went above and beyond to make our stay very memorable. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend the Thistle Hyde Park Hotel.
