Recent guest reviews

The location of the hotel is pretty good. It is near Hyde Park and the nearest tube station was less than 10 minutes away. The staff were very pleasant and efficient.Although the room was clean, the carpet appeared to be a little old and not very clean. The fact that they don't have a porter to carry luggage proved to be a challenge as I had a lot of luggage.

Friendly staff. The room was comfortable. We were im the middle of two train stations. Easy to walk to and from

Welcoming and in a nice neighborhood. Staff was courteous and kind. Clean room.

The hotel was great. Very clean. Staff was very friendly and let us check in early. We had 2 twin beds for our room - the room was small but manageable. Working the shower for hot water was the only trouble we had but worked through it. Great location for all activities, close to multiple underground stops and near a bunch of local cafes. I would absolutely go back there again. Great hotel and location!

This lhotel is very very enthralled located. I was in I f Don for short business conference answ as able to take the Tube everywhere. Loved that it is so close toHyde Park for walks and nature. The rooms re quite small and the bed not so comfortable but the breakfast is great and the staff very professional and pleasant. I woulda gay here again.

Stayed several days at a time & was able to leave luggage in storage. Rooms got smaller and floors lower over the course of my stay. Had 3 different checkins.

Excellent staff, great location , had all of the amenities of a large city hotel ! I would love to live there !! !Right near the beautiful parks and walking distance to most places in London! This hotel was a huge part of this wonderful trip! I will definitely return there !

Price is lower than others making this hotel a good value. It is inbetween two tube stops so it is a 5 or 6 block walk to the central line tube stations. The morning breakfast buffet is a fair value at 12 pounds per person if you are hungry and wish to eat a full meal. Expect the room furnishings to be decently comfortable budget furnishings with modest wear. Safe neighborhood with many restaurant options near the Queensgate tube stop.

Good location, close to Kensington Gardens and tube. Helpful staff; clean and generally well kept. Breakfast was good but same everyday; lack of variety became monotonous over several days. Mattress in room was old and uncomfortable (could feel springs).

Friendly, helpful staff. Great Breakfast (worth the extra money) Room nice - clean - but could have been larger (two people spreading their stuff out for a week could use more space) Will stay there again

Great location. Close to underground. Clean and comfortable. Excellent breakfast.

The staff couldn't have been more helpful. The hotel is old but has been well maintained. The rooms have very deep bathtubs which would make getting in and out of the shower a little difficult for an older person. All in all we couldn't have asked for more. Not fancy but quite comfortable. It is across the street from Hyde Park and Kensington Palace. The hotel is located within easy access of bus service to all points of interest.

As a 31 year old with no kids, I can survive on little/not good sleep, which was lucky because the walls are paper thin (I could hear my neighbors when they were just talking.) and the beds are super uncomfortable (I felt every spring). Besides that, it felt super safe, the staff were all lovely and helpful, and it's in a great location. (Didn't eat there at all, it was too expensive and there is great food not even a few blocks away.) I would go back if I were to travel to London in the next year or so but not anymore than that if nothing is upgraded. After a week of sleeping on the bed, I did feel my body starting to get sore and the last night before I had to get up for an early flight the people in the room next to us were up talking until 1 am, which we could hear and kept us from sleeping. Pros: -Great location (near tube, loads of buses, plenty of great restaurants) -Friendly/helpful staff -Clean (it looks run down a bit, but still not dirty) Cons: -Expensive food (just go out somewhere else!) -Thin walls (can hear everything people in the next rooms/hallway do) -Worst. Beds. Ever. (Who even has spring mattresses anymore?!) With a few improvements, they would be perfect!

Hotel charges £ 1,00 to store luggage. I have never been charged for this before - in any hotel.

We enjoyed our stay at LGH . Staff was very friendIy and attentive . Mohamed at front desk has provided exceptional service ensuring the comfort of the hotel guest . He arranged to do room change as complained about poor internet . It's walking distance from major market places & undergroubd tube and bus.

Everything was in order. Breakfast was good. Location is good. Friendly and helpful staff. No surprises.

Great hotel Staff very friendly & helpful to tourists Location is very close to restaurants & public transportation

Very helpful friendly staff Great location easy access to public transportation I would come back to Lancaster Gate

Clean, good staff, decent location and good price. Lacks some comforts of US hotels, including size, bed quality, and room amenities. Other than that a good value.
