Duke of Leinster Hotel is conveniently located in Bayswater not too far from the tube station and just a few steps from Hyde Park. The service is good and the rooms are decent. In the nearby you may easily find some Greek restaurants and also a few British Pub to enjoy your dinner time

Old, shabby and cracking.... The location is brilliant though (walking distance from Hyde park and from Waterloo station), breakfast is poor too. The staff is friendly and doing their best. It's clean, and I certainly had a good night sleep. Thus ok.

This hotel has a great location being very close to Oxford Circus and all the main streets. There is a Bus stop very near on the main street and also a tube station close by. There is a nice market near by with lots of eating places. The rooms are comfortable though small with tea/coffee facilities. We didn't experience any... More

I was given a very nice greeting from the girl in reception when I arrived at the hotel. She had me checked in in no time, and 1 minute later, I was in the room. I had booked a single room, and the size of the room was quite okay for London and Paddington. However, the noise from the street... More

Not expecting rain, we arrived soaked. The cheerful staff and the quick and hassle free check-in was a timely. Room was small, as expected of a London hotel. We stayed in a room facing the front, but surprisingly was a quiet night. Room was warm, although the window was not double glazed. After a long day, we opted for breakfast... More

I booked this hotel on a surprise bid with Priceline.com. After winning the bid for a ten night stay, they gave me the name and I immediately went to TripAdvisor to check the reviews. The reviews older than a year told a nasty and frightening tale. I should have ignored those and so should you. Focus instead on the more... More
