To find a real good affordable hotel in central London is hard work!! I do like smaller luxurious hotels, and The Royal Park Hotel seemed a good choice. The location close by Paddington station is ideal when arriving at Heathrow Airport. The reception staff was very friendly and professional and the interior in the reception, lounges and breakfast room was really nice. The breakfast room in particular was lovely. When having breakfast I felt like participating in a period drama from BBC. They also offered some sort of yoghurt/dessert, which was just fantastic.
Anything negative? We had an executive room, but it was pretty small. Because the room was situated on the top floor, it was full of light. I am not sure I would have liked a more inexpensive room on a lower floor. The girls who served breakfast seemed inexperienced and not well trained.
Given a larger room or for just half the price I would have given 5 stars, but it will end up with 4.
