The hotel with its 40 rooms is inside narrow and winding, but it has its charm. The cleanliness was ok, the staff friendly. But crumbled both on the exterior, as well as in the room the plaster chipped off of the walls. The hotel is inside as outside urgently renovated. read hotel review
  • Gastronomy
    3.0

    We only had breakfast. There was toast, jam, Nutella, butter, cheese and sausage, as well as yogurt and cereal. Everything packed. These tea bags and a fully automatic slicer for coffee, Capu and hot water. Typical english breakfast (scrambled eggs, bacon, beans), there was not, we didn't eat there. All in all okay. The breakfast room is in the basement and way too tight!

    The hotel is located a few minutes walk from the underground station Lancaster Gate in a u-shaped side street without through traffic. Also a few minutes' walk the hotel hyde park. Situation thus: very good!

    Our 5-bed -room was for sleeping big enough. There was air-conditioning (not used), tv, safe and everything to making facilities. There was only a closet and without intermediate floors. The fridge was quite loud. The room itself was basically clean. The mattresses were good. But: In our bathroom felt in the corners and the ceiling in the mold seem to be very comfortable (yuck!). The luftaustritt of the airconditioning was a big, ugly, yellow stain. Several edges in the room was spread out the plaster fallen off. The windows are only by sliding open, but completely leaky and made already with middle wind the whole night wackelgeräusche. The furniture was very worn. There was too few storage space for 5 people.

  • Service
    4.0

    Staff are very friendly. Changing people at the front desk. Partly very good, partly on ordering a shuttle overstrained. The room cleaning service was very good. English not always enough!

Great location. Great traffic connection. Hotel nice, but somewhat in need of renovation. Breakfast sufficient ( you'll be full), but a bit monotonous. -for a city trip ( if you don't have a Luxusaufenthalt plans) perfect! read hotel review

Small city hotel in the Hyde Park

  • August 2012
Small city hotel in a central location on Hyde Park. The tube (Lancaster Gate) is 5 minutes away, the bus stop is 2 minutes away. It is the center (Oxford Circus) in maximum 15 minutes to reach.. Room was functional, rather small, for London but normal. Very close is the pub ' the swan ', here you can quite good food, it is comfortable and at the weekend there is live music. We have already been the 4. time here! read hotel review

The hotel lies from the subway station 'Lancaster gate' only 5 minutes on foot away, therefore very centrally located. Furthermore lies opposite the Hyde park. Breakfast is continental very simple kept, but sufficient. Also fruit and small Müslipackungen, the you for the city can take are offered. Rooms simple but clean. Every day new towels! For all Reisendne, not much value on luxury couches and the hotel for city breaks only for sleeping benefit. Value for money for London simply good! read hotel review
