“poor decor, patchy service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2011

I booked this hotel for a business stop-over. We checked in late wanting to get straight in and relax. Unfortunately the card used to operate the room light didn't work properly so I had to spend a further twenty minutes in the room in the dark while the reception staff used a torch to find a makeshift solution. The bed was uncomfortable, and in the morning the shower head kept sliding downwards during my shower. Breakfast was included, but when we presented at the breakfast room there were only a couple of tables, which were already occupied. When we asked the breakfast waitress if there was any more space, she told us with a shrug we could sit outside. As it was mid-December we decided to pass on breakfast. Given the £55 room price for this hotel we weren't expecting a premium experience but both the decor and the service were indifferent. Would not recommend this hotel to fellow travellers.

Clean, comfortable budget hotel just round the corner from Paddington Station. Absolutely nothing wrong with it assuming you expect the normal issues with hotels of this quality in this price bracket (basic facilities, paper thin walls, etc). Good breakfast.

Stayed a night there after attending a work function. Great location, and I guess it was ok for what I needed anyway but it's certainly not a place you would take the wife or the mistress along to stay at.

Brilliant location, room was cramped for two but your in London all you do is sleep in it! Good value for what we paid it did the job and was clean. If you want 5* then pay for it!

Just spent a week in this hotel. It is small, but very adequate. Small ensuite bathroom with wonderful modern shower. Small refrigerator in the room, plus coffee maker & cups, etc. My granddaughter and I just spent a week in this small, but comfy hotel. If you are spoiled, you won't like it, but if you just want a convenient place to sleep that is close to several tube stations and Paddington Nat'l Rail (Heathrow Express/Connect), this is the place for you. A small breakfast room in the basement with several toasters and lots of bread, butter, jams & marmalade, hard boiled eggs, cheese, corn flakes & milk, plus coffee & tea. No elevator, so you have to hike up the stairs, but that's good for you!! It was fun and clean and quiet.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room #15 - 2nd floor. Good location.

Okay location, but that's about it.
You couldn't actually sit on the toilet as the sink was in the way. Signs of Damp/wet walls.
Tried to blaim problems with their payment system on my credit card, although it worked just fine. Generally unfriendly attitude from employees. Sheet on double bed were two single sheets sown together.
No correlation between price and value, you can find much better for that price in London.

We were unlucky enough to be one of the many people who booked through 1800hotels.ie days before they filed for bankrupcy protection. Unsure if our booking was in tact we began to panic. After being first told by our hotel that the reservation was confirmed, we found out the day before we travelled that our reservation had been cancelled. We searched for another hotel, confident that at such short notice we should get a good deal on another hotel, We came across the Glendale Hyde Park Hotel's site. It looked small but well maintained and ideally located. The site boasted of it's "first class accommodation" and "warm and friendly welcome to all guests". We were to be very disappointed. Upon our arrival, we were barely greeted by a man who seemed more concerned by the television program he was engrossed in. After 5-6 minutes of searching for our reservation, he eventually found it and informed us that although the room was ready, we were 45 minutes before their agreed checkin time so we would have to come back. When we came back, we were brought to a room in the basement floor of the hotel. the room consisted of a bed and a bathroom. No window and a door linking it to the next room (we would later discover that this door allowed us to hear every breath of the guests next door). Breakfast (included in the rate we paid) consisted of toast, filter coffee, orange juice or cold hard-boiled eggs. The breakfast room was similar to hostels I have stayed in over the years. I might add at this stage that we certainly did not pay hostel prices!! Upon leaving, the man at the desk (not the same as on our arrival) looked up at us and said goodbye (again, engrossed in whatever was on the tv). While we were grateful to get a hotel with a reasonable rate at such short notice, this hotel is nothing short of false advertising and failed promises. Never again.
