This hotel is right down the street from Hyde Park, bus stops and underground railway locations. Customer service was wonderful and a nice European breakfast was included in the price. The rooms are a little small but comfortable enough for the purpose of resting after a long day. Check out is at 10:30 which was difficult since we had an... More

This hotel was recommended to us, and I'm pleased that we stayed here for 8 nights in mid-May. The hotel is operated by the German YMCA, and has both a hotel wing and a hostel wing. Happily there is a lift, which makes life easier. The hotel is located close to both Piccadilly and Lancaster Gate railway stations. There are... More

Position cleanliness and abundant breakfast ita strongest points. Staff young and nice. If you need a hair drier You have to ask the reception and give them a 10 pound deposit , and remember to do it before the night shift begins! Considering London budget hotel standards I certainly would recommend it.

I have stayed at this hotel before. Nice room although I should think hot in the summer as no Air Con only a fan supplied. I wish this hotel would have double beds. Only twins. I hate single beds as so used to the luxury of stretching out in a double where as so cramped in a single bed. I... More

I was very glad I. found the Lancaster Hall Hotel. I spent four nights here, and had interactions with many members of the staff, all of whom were pleasant, patient, and helpful. I stayed in the "youth wing" and would do so again. Shared bathrooms and showers were well kept up, and my actual room (with bed, sink, table and... More

It was a strange experience to stay at this hotel. You were never welcomed, but the staff did not behave unpolite. They where just not interested in you. The hotel was really sterile like a hospital. It was not a place where you felt comfortable, but not bad either. The hotel gave a strange old feeling, but still it was... More

Although there has been a slight rise in rates, at under £100 for a twin room including an excellent continental breakfast , this is still wonderful value for an hotel within walking distance of Paddington stations [main line and tube] Lancaster Gate tube and numerous bus stops offering access to most of London. It is also within walking distance of... More

Great value for money. Situated near two underground stations in the Paddington area of London. Very clean and comfortable room with a decent shower. If you're wanting something cheap and cheerful in the middle of London then this is the place to go.

We stayed here for 3 nights, at the end of March, 2015. If only the mattresses had been a little stiffer, and more comfortable, I would have given it another star. The hotel is very convenient to public transit. We flew in to Heathrow, took the train to Paddington Station, and then walked 10 minutes to the hotel. We arrived... More
