I stayed at the Corus Hyde Park hotel on a business trip recently. My overall experience was very good.
The check-in process was smooth. Was booked in a a Superior room on the 10th floor and was pleasantly surprised as it was very spacious, compared to some of the other hotels where I have stayed in central London.
There was a separate work table provided. The bed is nice and comfortable, though the pillows were too thin for my liking and had to combine two of them. The room had a locker, ironing board, hot water kettle and LCD TV. Coffee/tea/hot chocolate packs were provided daily. The toilet was clean however the controls of the hand-shower were not working properly. The towels provided were really nice, toiletry kit was average.
For me who has taken to running over the last 1.5 years, the best part was that the hotel is located just across Hyde park. I could go for my daily runs early morning and have a good start to the day.
Did use the gym on one occasion when it was raining and I could not go out to the park. The gym is just ok, quite small and has a few cardio machines. Did get quite sweaty there after an hour.
The breakfast provided was good. Besides the usual English breakfast spread, you can go for custom omelettes. There was some Malaysian dishes also available.
I had asked for a checkout a day earlier than planned, however that information was not passed on to the front desk by their central reservation team. The issue was sorted out fine.
The hotel is located near a couple of tube stations, the nearest one being Lancaster gate. Paddington is just a km away. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, so choice of food won't be an issue.
Overall a good experience and I won't mind coming back again.
