5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Highly recommended. Clean rooms, friendly staff, very good breakfast. Great location for exploring the sites of the city, very close to bayswater station. We found all staff very friendly and helpful at all time. Room bit small but very clean and bright

The hotel itself is nice, clean and well kept... rooms are a bit small but serve their purpose if you only have to sleep there... Close to 2 tube stations so it is also very convenient concerning transport. The downside is that it's quite noisy since it is located next to a youth hostel or 2...

After reading others reviews we were a bit worried that we would be sent to another hotel but that did not happen. :-)

Very modern reception with staff 24/7. Fast check-in with helpful staff. Good chocolate in the reception for guests. Our room was 006 and it was a club-room and with good space and a big bed, a wardrobe, boiler with coffee/tea, hairdryer, microwave and plates, a safe with your own code which you choose, a nice bathroom with toilet and shower, AC in both room and bathroom, TV.

Our room got cleaned every day, that's very nice because I have some bacteria-phobia. It was overall a very clean room.

The hotel has a very good location and a lot of other hotels. Both Bayswater station and queensway-station is very close. Busses very close.
The surrounding area has EVERYTHING. There's a mall called Whiteleys where you can find shopping and cinema. Starbucks close to the hotel, also mc Donald's, Burger King, subway and Pizza Hut. I really recommend Pizza Hut in this area.

The free wifi is not good at all, very low and looses connection a lot. The hotel-info promises a lot of tv-channels but most of them are not working.

We did not eat anything at the hotel but you can pay 12 pounds for breakfast-buffet.

Overall a good stay and very nice hotel!

Room Tip: Our room was 006 and its on main floor, kinda noisy if you're sensitive. You can hear the underg...

Since is it very expensive to stay anywhere in London, you get quite a bit for what you pay for here. It's a really good location, one block from the Baywater stop and two blocks from Queensway. So getting around from here is easy, but the I wasn't overly impressed with the restaurants in the area but I found myself usually somewhere else for meals. We stayed in a nice, clean room but nothing good for a view (however, you don't come to London to look out your hotel room window). Cleaning service is good, and they always make sure you don't need anything if you miss service times. Our room size was reasonable size, considering it's London. We could easily fit both suitcases under the tv, there was a full sized armoire for hang ups and we could easily walk on either side on the bed. We were on the second floor, which is called the 1st floor. We could very faintly here the tube, but it never disrupted us or our sleeping. Nice friendly staff, however, we didn't really have any issues that needed dealing with, which I guess is a good sign. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone staying in London for pleasure or business.

This hotel was pretty confusing to find when walking from the Tube station, as the road in which it's located is full of many hotels and B&Bs. When we arrived, we were asked to wait as it was slightly earlier than the check-in time of 2pm. This was okay as we were not charged extra for early check-in. Also, they have delicious dark chocolate on the front desk...
The room itself was much smaller than the website photos imply (virtually no space to walk around the bed), but still nicely furnished. Very modern and clean. The coffee was very nice. Nearly had an accident when trying to step out of the shower which is located over the bath, as the bath is quite high and it is very easy to fall when trying to climb out - no handrails to hold onto; possibly a lawsuit waiting to happen. There was also no space whatsoever around the bathroom basin, so we had to leave toothbrushes on the shelf above the toilet. The loo paper is also in a very non-ergonomically effective location.
Anyway, we stayed here because we attended an event at Hyde Park, so it was really convenient. Also walked past a Waitrose on the way back, which stayed open quite late. Don't know whether we would stay here again, though.

Upon arriving at the Hyde Park International, my fiancé and I were pleasantly surprised by it's beautiful location with a tree lined boulevard and quiet surroundings.
The hotel itself is very clean with an small open and airy reception. We booked through Trivago and Last Minute Travel - check in was quick and effortless. Our room was not yet ready so for our troubles we were upgraded to a club room for free and offered teas and coffees while the room was prepared (It was only 11.30 in the morning).

Our room was small but very modern, not much of a view but you can't have it every way. The bathroom was exceptionally clean and the bed super comfortable.

Breakfast was included and I'll be returning for the sausages alone! Large thick cumberland butcher sausages always go down well. The hotel of course took care of our luggage all the next day and upon returning we stayed for a drink on their sunny front lawn.

All in all, a fantastic hotel which I will use again - 4 minutes walk to Bayswater tube station which is 1 stop from Paddington, you can't get more central than that.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the front of the hotel, any floor.
