Amazing Allround

The Lancaster is a very old building, yet amenities are superb. The location cannot be beaten, being on top of a tube station, very short walking distance to Oxford Street, Marble Arch, Bayswater/Queensway, and right across the road from Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. You can walk to almost anywhere centrally. The room was terrific ... but then again we booked the Royal Suite. Breakfast was great but overpriced.

Good stay overall but there is a room for improvement

2 nights stay: Downsides: major refurbishing going on right now in the hotel,no parking at the hotel which is temporary suspended,the curtains are at least 10 years old, no towel hook in the bathroom and lots of cracks in the corners. Upsides: great location,great view from the 13th floor,great restaurant -thai food,great service and well trained staff

Nice hotel, good location

We stayed in this hotel 4 nights on January 15. After I read the excellent reviews a was a little disappointed. But when I am thinking about it, overall , it was a good hotel. His location is good. It's a one stop of Central Line from Marble Arch which is Oxford street.you can also walk to Oxford st. It takes about 10 minutes . You can walk in Hyde park and it's better. The lobby is big and comfy. The rooms look old and the bathroom is small. It was ok for sleeping, and we could make a brake at noon because of its place. One day we returned to our room and saw they forgot to clean it! I called the reception and they sent a chambermaid immediately .they didn't change the sheets all the 4 nights. There is coffee and tea in the room, and the heat what great.

trip to London

Hotel is ideally situated overlooking Hyde Park and only a short bus ride from Oxford St and all the sites of London. They were having some renovation work done, which meant noise after about 10am, but really not that much of a bother. Staff were a little unfriendly, but efficient. Rooms were clean, bright and comfortable
