The hotel was nice and close to Paddington Station which is what we wanted, it was spotlessly clean, and a very pleasant stay, the service was very good, a good help yourselves buffet style breakfast to enjoy.

I stayed here for one night on 04/05/15. The location was good, only a 3 minute walk from Lancaster Gate tube station and on the outskirts of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. When we arrived the staff seemed bored and uninterested, yet the receptionist was much friendlier when we checked out the next morning. The check out time seemed very... More

Some of the reviews have been less than positive, but I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Elysee hotel. I found the rooms to be very clean and an adequate size. I have been in smaller rooms throughout Europe. I have to admit that I was upgraded to a double room even though I had booked a single. The shower was... More

The reason I still stay at the Elysee are the familiar and friendly staff, small hotel size, excellent location for getting around London, and affordable rates. The hotel is a short walk from both Paddington and Lancaster Gate stations. You can take the Heathrow Express to Paddington (35£ return) and be in the hotel lobby 30 minutes after leaving the...

Something of a bargain, a couple of hundred yards from Hyde Park - ideal for runners. Basic - a single room really is small - but clean, and with very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast is good and inexpensive. I really enjoyed my stay.

This hotel is excellent value for a short break. It is very clean and tidy, okay the rooms are small but if you want five star pay for it! The breakfast was good, the staff were helpful and friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this hotel again.

Terrible experience there. The room is terribly small, no place for standard size lugguage. Bathroom was barely clean. The worst was the bed and some dirt on the cushion and covers...Its the second worst hotel I have been in in my life, only beaten by a WMCA in NY. The relatively low place cannot justify the state of the rooms.... More

Nice and clean Place and Perfect location near the tube, Oxford Street and Hyde Park. But I wouldn't order a taxi in the reception. It is an expensive deal they have With some Company, they don't take creditcards and you don't get a receipt. There are several ordinary cabs nearby, choose them.

Hotel was very good, the breakfast was good and friendly staff. At the reception, Dilip was very friendly and helpful. Room quite small but very clean. We will surely stay at this hotel on our next visit to London. Malta

I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. It is in a good area near Hyde Park and close to Lancaster Gate underground station. The reception staff were good, the room was clean and comfortable. I would certainly stay again.
