Very good location for Paddington and Lancaster Gate tube into centre of London. Just across road to beautiful Hyde Park. Small bedroom and shower room - no bath - but very comfortable bed. A bit stuffy as I kept the window shut until the pub opposite turned quiet about midnight. You could hear a bit of noise from other rooms... More

Well I saw the good reviews here and booked. I only stayed for one night but I wish I hadn't. I arrived early and they graciously were still able to let me check in early and move me to a double (as I had booked a single) but it was in the basement level. I was only there for one... More

The building itself was old, but the people in the front desk were very helpful. Location is also great 3 blocks from Lancaster Gate subway and about 8 blocks from Paddington railways. It accommodates 2 adults and 2 teens. However storage space was scarce. However very clean all the time.

We visited as a couple after going to the British Summertime festival in Hyde Park and we found the hotel to be fine. The rooms are very small but I found it quite cosy! Everything was clean and the beds were also nice and comfortable. It's all you need after a busy day in London and in a great location.... More

We recently past through London and needed a place to stay for one night close to attractions and also giving us easy access to the Underground in peak hours for our trip to Heathrow the next morning. This hotel was perfectly located for us. Walking distance from Paddington station when we arrived in London, and only a few hundred meters... More

We booked this hotel for one night after reading positive reviews on this site. It was quite a shock when we entered our room to see how dirty the room was. The carpet was black with dirt and the net curtain was also covered in stains. We complained to the receptionist who kindly gave us extra towels so we could... More

This review seems to have come as a surprise and although we are concerned about its authenticity, there will be greatly increased effort on our part. We have asked all the duty receptionists and none can recall giving towels for guests to walk on. The cleaning regime is thorough with triple inspections, by the duty manager, chambermaid and housekeeper. There... More

First time staying here, accommodations were clean and the hotel was well situated within the city. Know before going that the rooms are very small and beds/carpeting seem outdated. Not a lot of extras but we weren't at the hotel a lot. After being in the busy city all day it was nice to return to this quiet street. Nicely... More

Once again my wife and I booked into the wonderful Elysee. We had a very relaxing stay in this well located hotel and, because the weather was so warm, we were able to stroll through Hyde Park each day - the hotel is literally beside it. The staff at the hotel are so welcoming and attentive to your needs -... More

We booked three nights here through Hotels.com at the end of a trip and were very pleased. Our priorities were price and location, and this is an incredibly convenient spot, about a block from the Lancaster Gate tube station (which we used as our starting point to explore the city). It is also walking distance from Paddington (convenient if you... More

Spent four nights there last week. Very well kept clean small hotel just round the corner from Lancaster Gate station. Bright white linen and comfortable beds. English breakfast including home made fresh fruit salad every morning. Very friendly staff, even the bags were carried for us. Many thanks for that!
