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.

My favorite place to stay in London

I've stayed here several times.The staff is very polite and helpful. (They got me a phone charger at one am when mine failed, and totally kept me from disaster). Rooms are quite nicely sized for London, the beds are large and comfy, I love the robes and slippers, tea and biscuits in the room, and the great view. It's on a few steps from the tube at Lancaster Gate, and I always feel safe traipsing in and out late at night. The area is quiet, right against Hyde Park. I'll keep coming back to them, again and again.

Mother/Daughter Trip

This hotel was a perfect choice for 2 people. We were able to sleep in seperate single beds and the room was a decent size. It is directly located above the Lancaster Gate tube station, so about a 30 second walk to transportation. Hyde park is directly across the street and it is convienently located next to several transit options. The hotel is actually very busy and seemed well occupied. The lobby/bar area is well priced and very nice with lots of people around. The food in the hotel was also very good. I was extremely happy with the hotel and would stay there again. My only complaint was the internet. It was 17.00 a day or 15 min free in the business center with other additional charges for minutes beyond that.

Wonderful repeat visit to London and the Lancaster London

We had a fabulous time in London! Traveled for special occasion. Daughter's first visit and mom's 10th! The hotel's great location led to easy access to sights. The hotel staff, especially the concierge staff was fantastic! Answered all questions easily, accurately and with a smile on their face. Gave wonderful, easy alternative transportation advise when needed - because of construction diversion.

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 Place

Clean, sunny, fresh room, though expensive and smaller than what we would expect in the US. Friendly staff. Convenient location with Lancaster Gate tube station around the corner. If you have luggage, get off at Lancaster gate and not Paddington. Paddington station, eateries and pubs close by at a walking distance. Post office on Praed Street (walking distance from Paddington) for best currency exchange rate.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Get a London Pass for sight seeing. Buy your travel card for the day separately based on the zones you would like to visit that day. The more zones you want to visit the more expensive the day ticket. Peak hour ends at 9:30 am, but tourists flock to the ticket machines at that time so there are long lines. Get your ticket early during 'Peak hours' (between 4:30 am - 9:00 am). There are no long lines then as working folks have their tickets already.
