We stayed for two midweek nights while visiting the capital .The hotel has recently been refitted and is very clean well equipped . The staff are friendly and we wanted for nothing while staying there. The hotel allowed/ suggested that we could leave our bags on our check out day which really helped. The position of the hotel is good... More

Very near to the Hyde Park located in a prestigious and quite neighbourhood. Have access to the bus system and very near to the underground as well. Helpful staff and good basic breakfast served by professional people. Beware to choose a room with few stair steps as we've been offered a room that has a lot of stairs to climb... More

We spent 3 nights in this hotel. Nicely located and very welcoming since the beginning. The place has been recently renovated which makes the staying even more pleasant. Continental breakfast is very reach and good. Personnel is very kind, careful and quick. Rooms are a bit small which is typical for central London anyway. Metro station (Lancaster gate) is very...

Excellent location, in a quiet area, not far from Paddington station and two min. walk to Hyde Park. Decent sized room (superior double), bigger than usual, in most old Victorian buildings, functional bathroom, both very clean. Surprisingly, no minibar. Complementary espresso machine, as a compensation, probably. Dull and a little bit tired decoration (carpet colour faded in front of the... More

No complaints, all was as you would expect from such a hotel. negatives - breakfast is basic but was good, £7 extra for cooked breakfast, checkout is 11am, would have been better with a 12pm checkout. Positives, clean, nice decor, location

The hotel was in a great location, we could walk to the park and an underground station was a half mile away. Staff were friendly and attentive. The breakfast was fresh and tasty. Our room was mean and the bed was comfortable. We felt welcomed each time we came back to the hotel.

Excellent value, great location for anything in Hyde Park, very clean and quiet rooms, a personal welcome and delicious breakfast. We stayed at the weekend and considered it to be very good value for money.

Yes, the Lancaster gate to the park is just 1 block from the front door. Easy walk and you can have a delightful time exploring London's park system that leads to BUckingham. I've been to London many times and have never had this handy position to explore a giant city park. Pretty posh digs, but not stuffy...Rather a small public... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Despite being just a short hop away from the West End of London, Arbor Hyde Park feels like it's a million miles from the intense whirl of nearby Marble Arch. Hidden away on a quiet loop that curves off from the main stretch of Lancaster Gate, the hotel provides its guests with a level of quiet seclusion rarely found in so accessible a location. Housed within a beautiful Victorian terrace, just a couple of minutes' walk from the trees, lakes and green spaces of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, Arbor Hyde Park offers a style of meticulous but unobtrusive service that matches the simple elegance of its architecture. The hotel has been designed for the comfort and convenience of its guests, with an emphasis on understated quality. There aren't many places in central London that can claim to be genuinely restful. The Royal Parks can make a good case; Arbor Hyde Park, which looks out over one of those parks, can too. ... more   less
