Handy location right on Hyde Park Corner. I had never heard of the hotel before being invited for Afternoon Tea and it did not disappoint. The sandwiches, tea and cakes were excellent. The silver needle tea I had Thanks for a lovely afternoon.

If you want to roll first class in London, you can do no better than The Lanesbourough Hotel in Hyde Park London. I've stayed here twice and it only gets better. The staff provide impeccable service! From the front desk to your personal butler to the house maids, you will feel as pampered as the Queen just around the corner.... More

Close to everything you want to visit and do in London. You can easily take a stroll to Picadilly, Harvey Nics or the fine parks close to Pall Mall and Buckingham Palace. Fantastic rooms with plenty of space for the entire family. High quality beds and linen and of course nice toiletries. Even though the hotel is very centrally located... More

The Lanesborough is still a true landmark within London's hotel and accommodation landscape. It does stick out positively, having preserved the dedicated and individual service one came accustomed to. The food is typical English and so are tea and coffee and all of good quality served in truly English style. After check in, luggage is found already in the room... More

When You enter the Lanesborough Hotel entrance, just keep going and turn left into the Library Bar. This being an old wartime(I think)hospital, the ceilings are very high and the bar area is a very warm experience indeed. A grand piano in the corner provides a nice , not too intruding, background to conversation. This is a perfect place for... More

Stayed in the Lanesborough hotel for about 5 times. Firstly, the hotel has a unique location: Hyde Park is just across the road as well as the Tube, while the Buckingham Palace is just around the corner and lots of places of interest within the walking distance. Secondly, the hotel is something beyond for the ones who seek esthetic pleasure.... More

Reading other reviewers contributions where they were raving about the hotel, made me feel as if I stayed at another place. This hotel is old, stuffy, smelly, has rude staff, haunted rooms (no I'm not joking), your room type is a game of Russian roulette, they have rooms that have are underground with a narrow window (dungeon style), and rooms...

So often today one is enticed by promises of service and location etc only to be disappointed. However, everything you have heard and read about The Lanesborough is true. If you want real 5* service in London, then look no further.

I've had the opportunity to stay here twice and both times the room, service, staff and overall experience has been absolutely amazing. One needs to get used to the butler service, but they are not intrusive at all. The butler service is very convienent. Coffee delivered in the morning, clothes pressed (for free), items packed. I had a junior suite... More
