So, let's start with the main complaint we'd read here before we visited - that it's supposedly riven with road noise if you're on the front of the hotel.
Sure, if a vehicle passes with a siren on it, you'll hear that - but the odd siren is all. The impression some reviews here give that it'd be like sleeping on the median of a dual carriageway is just wrong. (And if you find the sound of a passing ambulance or police car disruptive, why would you be staying in the heart of London on a busy thoroughfare anyway? It's like going to Venice and complaining there's boats outside your window.)
We were on the Mezzanine with a balcony, so were surprised and delighted to discover that once the door was closed, it was peaceful.
Like a lot of London hotels, there's a lot packed into a small space - even the reception area is compact - but it's done incredibly well.
The bed is comfy; the room clean and modern. Everything works well; there's a proper hairdryer not tethered to the inside of a drawer. You get an iPhone docking station-cum-alarm clock with an additional USB charging point on the side; and ample plug sockets. The TV is Smart and the staff are friendly.
Protip: There's a constant supply of ice-cold water in the gym room.
We didn't try the cafe downstairs but it looked popular.
Walking distance of Queensway and Notting Hill tubes.
One small thing - the 'park view' isn't exactly a fib, but you do get a better view of the coach park rather than Hyde Park...
Oh: and make sure your taxi driver knows which Doubletree you're going to, and doesn't go sailing off to the one at the other corner of the park.
