“Excellent value London hotel in good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Clean and comfortable hotel, close to Hyde park and Oxford Street shops. Staff were very friendly. Breakfast was fine and service was really quick. Excellent room rates, expecially if you book on-line. I've not been able to find a better value hotel of this quality.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

For London this hotel is very good value. The rooms are basic but who spends time in their hotel room apart from sleeping when in London. Its handy to the Tube and easy to grab a taxi outside. Do not get the hotel to order you a car they are expensive and do not know the roads like the London cabbies! (we learnt that lesson)

The staff were great except the night staff (male) were rather surly (although they did what was requested but usually without a smile).

The breakfast is excellent. Its plated up so you do not get the problem that you normally get with budget hotel breakfasts where all the food is gone before you get to the buffet. If you are not a big eater its more than enough and if you are well there is endless toast! Very nice staff in the breakfast area.

Room Tip: Family room was adequate for parents and two teenagers

My sister, myself and our mother (aged 85) stayed two nights at The Mitre for a weekend visit to the capital. Very pleased with this hotel - exterior is welcoming with window boxes and night lighting which makes it easy to spot, friendly reception staff, clean and comfortable room, ample breakfast served by efficient and attentive staff. Great location - stone's throw from Paddington and Lancaster Gate, the open spaces of Hyde Park and Kensington Garden, not forgetting the little oasis of Bathurst Mews right opposite where the Ross Nye stables are located if you like horses! Would stay here again and recommend it.

Room Tip: 4th floor front rooms face Sussex Gardens - leafy tree tops.

Got there for 3 days stay in London in the beginning of October. The place is having good location.. close to Paddington station, Hyde park, and 10-15 minutes walk from Marble Arch.
The rooms are ok.. you have everything in first need. A bit small room.. but this is normal for London downtown hotels. Ok for 2 people. The staff was also Okay. The breakfast - good!

Our room was spacious and comfortable. Kate and the rest of the staff were extremely helpful, understanding and friendly and helped us out on numerous occasions. We spent eight nights and found the location very convenient to public transport, eateries, Hyde park and pubs.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. We had a great stay on the whole. The hotel look good on the outside and was lit with green lights at night so easy to spot. The only things we could find wrong with it was that the beds were not the most comfortable and the elevator was extremely slow. We stayed in connecting rooms which shared a bathroom which was fine as we were a four party group. We liked the english breakfast which was very filling for long days we spent in the city. Loved the location. The closest tube stations were Lancaster Gate (Central Line) and Paddington station (Circle, district, bakerloo, Hammersmith and city). Very easy to get around. We easily walked to Hyde Park, Marble Arche and Oxford Circus. Restaurants were located close by and had for example a great dinner at Angus Steakhouse. I also highly recommend Vapiano's by Oxford Circus. This hotel could use some renovations as it is old fashioned but we liked it and the homey vibe it had. Good service at the front desk and people willing to help.

I had a great experience at this hotel. I was visiting London during a busy time, during the Paralympics, and Kate and the staff helped me immensely with all my changing plans and last minute hotel needs. She and the staff also helped me with all my dumb tourist questions about local attractions, electrical needs, vegetarian needs (also at breakfast, which was pretty hearty), where to change currency, etc. The location was excellent - there are a ton of budget and not-so-budget hotels in the area - and besides access to Paddington Station, the area was also convenient to Hyde and Regent's Parks, other public transit and taxis. There was a bit of noise with street improvements outside - not the hotel's fault. WiFi was good. The bar and lounge areas were a step above the usual Paddington hotel standards. But it was the staff that was the best! and all this at an EXCELLENT price point during the busiest London season in ages!
