“ok, but nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

we went to this hotel only for one nite. it was very easy to find, it looked nice. we came around four in the afternoon, booked a club double room, but didn't get it. ok, no biggy. the room was very small, didn't have a fridge, a bathrobe, a microwave, like we were promised to get. we fell a sleep in te aftrnoon and some woman came into our room. so she appologised of course but I called the reception and they messed up the rooms. they gave us that woman's room and only god knows what happened to ours. we had a great view on the 7th florr didn't mind the stairs from 6th to 7th. we got complimentary water (that was included in the price but wasn't in the room originally!!!), a couple of coke and some fuit. We would rather have our room, though. the staff was nice, the room was clean, but as i said very small, brakfast was pretty good i must say. not sure if I would go there again. the location was awesome! Not bad but not great either....

Room Tip: not sure about the tip, we wanted our club double but the staff said they are full....

I booked a room at the Hyde Park international to be close to my friend's hotel. Two days before I left I found myself moved to the Park Grand due to maintenance. I had paid £129 per night and found myself in a tiny cramped basement room with only a free breakfast to mollify me for the disappointment I felt. I had to find my way around a completely unfamiliar area of London to meet my friend the following morning. The walls of the rooms were very thin and I was woken up everytime someone decided to shower or use their facilities in the night.

On the last morning of my stay I found myself idley googling so I didn't get caught out again by paying through the nose for absolute rubbish. I checked the room prices of the hotel I was at only to find they were on average about £30 cheaper than the hotel I had been moved from. I am absolutely livid that I had, on good faith, paid up front at the hyde park international only to find myself in a room that didn't meet the original specifcations I had booked in and NO ONE, not one member of staff, had the courtesy or honesty to tell me this. I had to find out myself and then complain to management before anything was done.

The manager tried to claim that the rooms at the hyde park international were cheaper than this hotel and that room rates vary but when I responded I had checked the weekend prices and STILL found myself having paid too much she agreed to give me 20% off my bill. I feel only slightly less annoyed now as a result of them having paid me some of my wasted money back but I was left feeling like the hotel was run dishonestly. It was a big stain on what had been a much planned for and anticipated birthday holiday. Please DO NOT book in with these hotels and if you are unfortunate enough to have done so already DO NOT swallow them moving your room without investigating the prices yourself because they won't tell you.

I made a reservation here last minute through booking.com and was dreading it due to other travelers reviews about being moved to the other location. However, we checked in early afternoon and were given a room right off the lobby. It was very small, but it was clean. The location is unbeatable, a short walk to Hyde Park, Oxford Street, the Underground, and Paddington Train Station. It was a good price for the location, and I would probably stay here again for a short stay.

booked via lastminute.com's 'Top Secrect Hotels' option so was expecting much better than a room on the 7th floor.....when lift ends at 6th floor....and having to carry bags up steep narrow staircase to stuffy room in what once must have been an attic/roof space; bedside lights wouldn't turn off so had to remove room key from card reader to sleep in airless room as that meant the air-con couldn't be used and woke to find no cold water properly piped to the bathroom so shower and WC were not properly available.....wasted hour and a half dodging in and out when some cold came through intermintently....reception indicated we would have to wait til 9am for maintainace to arrive ....we calleed at 7.30, will never stay there again

Had to book this hotel at the last minute for just one night. We were originally booked for a double room at the hotel at 55 Shaftsbury, but after checking in were sent here, where we received a basement level room instead. The room was a little small, but was very modern and clean, with a good sized bathroom. I wish we weren't in the basement level, but I guess that was all that was left, booking last minute.

For the price we paid, I think this hotel was pretty good, and would be worth coming back to again. It is also very close to Paddington Station, so getting there was easy as well.

Nice and clean with tasteful decor. Nice big TV.This was the fifth time i'd visited London for business purposes(course) and was the best i'd stayed in for this price range (£79). I had booked a single and got a twin room which is always nice for the extra space. Breakfast was apayable extra (£12 if pre-booked) and was the usual range of continental and cooked in avery pleasant dining room.Complimentart toiletries and tea/coffee facilities. Bar snacks were available but only offered room service ordering out of bar opening times closing and as travelling alone I would have prefered to order from room.Reception staff nice and friendly. . I requested a room witha view ( write up says available upion request) prior to arrival and did get it.I t was only an overnight stay so didn't really get to experience hotel further but overall it was a nice and uncomplicated comfortable stay.Great location for Paddington Tube station.

Hotel is right outside the tube station which is handy. Close to Bella Italia and some Indian restaurants. A lot of foreign people running the place, which is fine no problems with that. They upgrade us when we got there claiming the "club room" is a bit bigger and comes with breakfast... however i would like to see what a "deluxe" room that we booked looked like as the club room was very small. What the staff need to understand is you cannot upgrade a couple to a club room and not give the upgrades that come with it such as breakfast... or its not an upgrade is it! so we went to breakfast and nobody said anything and we paid no extra, as we shouldnt.... as they said they upgraded us free of charge! Breakfast was nice, full English to choose from as well as cereal's juice etc. Big TV in rooms and beds were very comfortable. Sad though as most rooms only have a shower and no bath. I know when I go away I like to enjoy a bath.
