A very comfortable hotel set in the heart of London. (10/10 LP) A traditional building, quite grand in appearance with a graceful Edwardian facade. Situated just 5 minutes away from Lancaster gate tube station, close by to Marble Arch and just in front of Hyde Park.

Excellent hotel stay

Had a great overnight stay, staff was efficient and informative. Location is great on tube and bus lines, close to Notting Hill which is great for a wander and evening meal, Hyde Park across the street and a easy walk to Regents Park and Buck Palace. Room was just as advertised, clean, nice bath (tub was high up) overall fine for our purposes.. Did not have breakfast here as they wanted 10 pound per head, found a nice bakery next to the tube station and snacked and people watched instead

If traveling about England with a family using public transport and trains buy a rail Family Card in advance of your trip as well as any long distance train trip as you will save a suprising amount over standard fare. Family card works in a wide variety of situations, tube fares attractions etc, just ask if it is accepted. Can be found on national rail website

Good Location and Value, Expensive WiFi

great stay, good room. located not too far from grocery, laundry, train (tube) stations, few restaurants. Be warned, the wireless internet is expensive, about 20 pounds ($30) a day! Other than the internet, everything was great.

Great Location

The room was small (although by european standards was functional.) The room was warm and unable to cool off well, I was there in May and if it hadn't rained so much I don't know if I would have been able to stay in that room and be confortable. The location was good, very close to paddington station, although I think for me it was a little too far to walk. The tube is close and the staff was very helpful in arranging excursions.

The power of good photography..

Very disappointed, [...] but despite being a Brit I am always reminded how much better US hotels are. The pictures of the rooms are extremely deceiving, they are tiny rooms - the clerk argued with me that I didn't book for breakfast when I knew I had but had forgotten my paperwork back in the US. Most important mistake was the lack of a wakeup call despite being double verified that we were in the system for a 3am call to get to Heathrow in time. Front desk simply put it down to a phone error but were quite able to call us for our 4am taxi. The best part of this hotel was the Breakfast at a small Panini joint round the corner and an excellent pint and food round the corner (Lienstein Arms?..(sp?)

Best value in London

We stayed one night to attend a concert at Royal Albert Hall which is a pleasant 15-20 min walk through Hyde Park. Our room was recently renovated and a good size for London. We would definitely stay again.

Hyde Park Great Location!

Great location to train and bus stations. Close to Kensington Gardens, food and shops. Hotel had a nice breakfast - we booked through a popular travel website and our breakfast was included. Staff was friendly but gave us a lot of misinformation about tours and other small pieces of info. Internet service was a disappointment. Other than that...room was nice, clean and cozy. They will hold your luggage if you arrive before check-in. In our case we were checked-in early. That was super nice!

A nice place to stay

The Park Inn hotel is located off a main street, but a short walk to bus and the Tube stations, making it easy to get around. It's also a short walk to Kensington Park. The room was small by comparison to what we're used to in the States, but it was quiet, clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful, and there was a computer in the lobby with free internet access. The only downside was no closet space in our room.

There was a Greek restaurant on the street to the West of the hotel with excellent food at reasonable prices. We shared the mixed grill and enjoyed it very much. Don't waist time going to the "Jewel Tower," go to the "Tower of London" to see the Crown Jewels.

Great location!

I thought the Park Inn was a great hotel. The location was absolutely perfect. We took the underground everywhere we wanted to go. It was a short walk to Lancaster gate and Kensington Park. The rooms were clean. Our first room did not have the amount of beds we requested. The hotel moved our belongings to a new room the next day (they had no open rooms the first night). So it worked out. Plus our first beds were rock hard. The beds in the next room were more comfortable. There is construction going on across the street at the moment. It wasn't intolerable, but it was noticable. All of this was totally worth it for the price and location.

Park Inn Hyde Park

We spent the week in London celebrating an anniversary. The hotel was very good. Nice staff, convenient location, good breakfast and very nice rooms. The beds were firm (which we liked) and the bathroom clean and up to date. We are considering trips to other parts of the United Kingdom in the future and will try and stay at one of their hotels if we can. Only negative was construction noise across the street in the morning which hopefully will end soon.

Laundry and dry cleaners are around the block on Craven Terrace. Clothes can be cleaned quickly and fairly cheaply at the laundry service.

Don't even consider this hotel!

When the first thing the desk attendant says is "If you don't like the room, we can change it" BEWARE! We we're first taken to a lower floor room that had just been painted and the fumes almost knocked us out. The next room had a broken chair, glass broken out of framed art and was on the floor, mold in the bath, the vent was off the ceiling air duct and you could see into the crawl space, the side of the tub was just a sheet of plastic which was dented in and cracked, and the room had a dirty ash tray in a "non smoking" room, etc.. They asked us to leave our luggage and they would move us to a third room so we could get on with our day. We we're hopeful as we walked through a very loud construction site to the tube. Upon our return we found the room to at least clean but the room was smaller, even by European standard, and it still smelled of smoke. We asked an employee about this and they said that the floor was indeed a smoking floor. When confronted the desk said that they had no suitable rooms available anywhere else. Since we had prepaid the room to get a discounted rate we just put up with it as it was only 3 days before moving on to Paris. Incidentally, Our Paris room was amazing! It is not all of Europe as some may say, it is just this hotel that sucks! We wouldn't stay there again if it was free!

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Public transportation is easy to use! We took a hop on hop off double decker bus tour the first day which gave us a nice overview of all of the tourist attractions. The Tower of London is amazing, plan a large part of the day there. Check to see if it is open before you come. There may be an event going on that will not allow public visitation that day. We took a Jack the Ripper walking tour which was very entertaining, if you are interested in that sort of thing. Gave a little history on the Whitechappel area. Don't waste your time with Abbey road if you are a Beatles fan. People practically died trying to get pictures there as it is a very busy road and not even the original spot. Weather was beautiful in October but I would shoot for late August while Buckingham Palace is still open.
