We have stayed at The Arbor a few times and it is a lovely, hotel in a quiet location close to Hyde Park. The room we had on the third floor was adequate, with an extra area where you could sleep a third person. However, because of the orientation of the room it was not big enough for a king... More

My friend and I met in London to spend a weekend together, as we don't see each other very often. This Hotel was perfect. The staff was very friendly and helpful, but also not overpowering. It is very charming and quite and short distance to Paddington station. The Hotel is stylish and not too big, which we liked a lot.... More

Lovely hotel in a perfect, peaceful location. The room was a reasonable size, very elegantly furnished. Attention to detail was evident and although there was no fridge or minibar in the room (which I rarely use anyway), I wanted for nothing. Comfortable bed and good shower, which are my two essentials. The location was superb - walking distance from Paddington... More

Wanted a location that was central, accessible, comfortable, and offered more than a chain hotel. Our room was on the front of the hotel but the location is extremely quiet and just a couple of minutes walk to Hyde Park. The rooms are certainly small by North American standards but they had everything we needed and you don't come to... More

Close to the tube station. Nice little touches, mini pastries in the hall in the morning, jars of sweet treats in the afternoon. Nice... More

I stayed at this hotel for just one night. I thought it was a little pricy but I guess that's normal for London. You hardly see that it is a hotel from the outside. Very clean and quite which I really appreciate. Surprisingly the breakfast was a nice buffet and plenty for a day of shopping ahead. I record this... More

Stayed 4 nights in this elegant Boutique Hotel, in a nice quiet residential road, minutes away from Hyde Park Lanacaster Gate side. Service was excellent, personnel discreet and well trained, breakfast was a delight, and rooms were tranquil with a pleasing design and excellent shower. Will definitely return.

Just got back from a two night stay at this hotel. I must say it was excellent. Hotel was very well decorated, room was lovely. I asked for a twin which they delivered. There were snacks we could help ourselves to throughout our stay. The breakfast was always regularly replenished and of a high standard. Really enjoyed the stay. Thank... More

We booked this hotel through Secret Escapes and I sent an email in advance to say we were staying for my husbands Birthday and could we have a quiet room as I am a very light sleeper and would be disturbed by air conditioning units or lifts operating. I received a prompt reply from reception to say they would take... More

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We do our best to accommodate all request but it is not always possible based on occupancy in the hotel, none the less I am sorry to hear your first room did not provide you with the peace and quiet your wanted. The Hotel is generally very quiet by... More
