My girlfriend booked the Hyde Park Executive Apartments on the basis that her university friends, who she was meeting up with, all booked the same place. Turns out they didn't book here & after two nights, I can understand why.
Firstly, credit where it's due. The room was very clean and the hotel itself is in a great central location with two tube stations very nearby and a plethora of restaurants, pubs, shops etc, minutes away.
The club room was very small, contrary to what the pictures gave the impression of on the website. As an 'executive apartment' I assumed it would be larger, but it was more like a studio flat, which was disappointing.
The hotel generally was very hot and needed more ventilation (the corridors in particular were very stuffy and uncomfortable) therefore the room would almost permanently need the window open, which cures the stuffy/heating problem, but then leaves you at the mercy of the traffic and general noise outside, which at night would not impress light sleepers.
Wifi was none existent, unless you sat in reception, and even then it was hit and miss.
Reception charged us £5 to store our luggage after checking out. A charge I have never incurred at any hotel I've ever stayed at, ever, even budget ones. Considering how much we paid for the two nights, I thought this was just something to squeeze a little extra cash from you. Profit seems to come before customer service.
Generally, it was OK, but I wouldn't stay again unless I paid half the price.
