Visited the Arbor quite a few times over the past three months and wouldn't think twice before recommending it. Tried all the room types with the executive being the best the hotel has to offer. Refurbished in summer 2014 the place looks stunning, whoever designed the reception or lobby area did a great job. Staff very pleasant to engage with,... More

We had a stylish, thoroughly modern room with large, sparkling shower room. We thought we had very good value for London before we arrived but were then delighted to be given an upgrade. This is a new hotel with lots of little extras and the included Continental breakfast was varied and beautifully served. The menu for the cooked breakfast looked... More

Really beautiful hotel and location. rooms not huge but have all the amenities required including coffee pod machine. Extremely clean and the level of service from the staff is extremely high. Breakfast was included a continental and we found that more than sufficient with lots of choices. You can get a paid breakfast as an extra. Superb area for peace... More

Really enjoyed our one night stay here, just a 12 minute walk from Paddington Station, lovely quiet residential area, we stayed here as convenient to Royal Albert Hotel. Continental breakfast included in our room rate, which was plenty for us, good selection & excellent service - wouldn't hesitate to recommend & say again

Very nice hotel at a wonderful, nice and calm place! Next to the hyde park (we went to a gig in the Royal Albert Hall and walked back through the park...) The Paddington Station as well is in a good distance to the hotel! Just a 10 Min. walk, the Lancaster Gate tube station some 2 Min.! Perfect for London!... More

Can't have it all? of course you can! This is a brilliant hotel in a brilliant location. Room was great with terrific bed, and terrific shower. Service was also very good and welcoming. The room rate also included a cold breakfast which you can add warm dishes (with an extra charge), it was very nice touch to start a morning... More

Location of the hotel is very good; it is just a few minutes from the park. The room was large, with modern decor etc with the usual equipment and facilities and plenty of natural light. The menu choice was limited but the food was good. The staff were friendly and helpful. All in all a successful stay with no complaints.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I am sorry to hear your stay was only "reasonable" as you seemed to have had no complaints. I hope next time we can exceed your expectations and make it a "wonderful stay". More

We stayed the Arbor Hotel for 2 nights last week for my birthday. We have stayed in other hotels in the area but thought we would give it a try. It is very well decorated, modern looking hotel. Our room was on almost a split level with the bed and bathroom at one side and a couch and coffee machine... More

We stayed here as my husband was running the London Marathon. Location wise, it was great - just next to Hyde Park in a nice quiet part of London, but with plenty of restaurants and pubs nearby and close to Lancaster Gate tube station. Really nice lobby and lounge area which give a good impression on arrival, and staff were... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. For the biggest rooms I would suggest an Executive room which gives you plenty of space, especially as you have said, for longer stays. We serve a leisurely weekend breakfast but we would always do earlier breakfast on request in your room. I hope your husband had a... More
