FANTASTIC experience!

With one small exception, we could not have had a better experience in lodging in London (the wi-fi was the only issue... 17 pounds per day is far too much, but at least they give you 15 free minutes on their business office computers). We were so pleased with our stay... the people couldn't have been nicer, the room was truly amazing, and the location is truly perfect. Thank you for making our stay so pleasant... we'll be back as long as it's affordable as it was this time!

great location, wonderful staff

This was the first time my daughter and I stayed at the Lancaster London, though we had stayed at other hotels in the neighborhood. When we arrived they gave us a room with a double bed. When we asked for 2 twin beds we were given another room immediately. No hassle at all. The room we had was not one of their deluxe but we were very happy with the size and the view was wonderful. The staff was always friendly and very willing to help.

Fantastic views, brilliant location

The hotel was in a fantastic central location right next to Lancaster Gate tube station and when we arrived because the hotel didnt have the room we booked, they upgraded us to the Hyde Park Suite which was amazing with panoramic views accross Hyde Park and the city. The bed was very comfortable and the staff very helpful and friendly. My boyfriend and I were very pleased and would definitely recommend it.

More like an American Hotel

This is a good hotel for a business visitor or tourist. It's conveniant to Paddington, so getting to and from Heathrow is a breeze. It's on the Central Line, so an easy tube ride to Liverpool St or Bank stations. Easy walk to Oxford St/Picaddilly. Moderate walk or tube to Royal stuff. Fun to stroll in the park. Rooms are larger and nicer than a lot of hotels at that price range. Rooms are quiet and clean. Careful paying the upcharge for a park view room. In their opinion, if you can see the tippy tops of the trees on Bayswater, that's the park and you can view it. Not many restaurants nearby....mostly the touristy pubs and steak places near Paddington. Cost of "English Breakfast" at hotel was laughably high. Maids started tapping on the doors a little earlier than they should have, so just use your do not disturb sign. 2 of the 4 lifts were broken for the last few days I was there. Would stay again.

Don't ask for the park view until you check in, and then make sure it's a real park view.

lancastar hotel

good location if you need to be close to paddington station for an early flight or avoiding the taxi line when you arrive. right above a tube station. price for internet access of 18 pounds for 24 hours was excessive as well as the price for the breakfast buffet. price of hotel was good, as long as you dont need these extras
