Dear Sophie, Our guaranteed check in time is 2 pm. If we have a room available beforehand, we will be happy to check you in at no additional cost. If we don't we can keep your luggage for you. Either way my suggestion would be to contact the hotel directly and inform at what time you will be arriving. Kind Regards, Miguel SIlva

Hi Griffax, It should take about 25 minutes to walk from our Hotel to Hyde Park. There are quieter routes you can take which may increase the time by a few minutes. Hope that helps and look forward to welcoming you.
