I spent a few days in London with my two children, and we booked a triple room at Park International. The room provided us with a comfortable living space and the bathroom, although small, was adequate for what we needed. We had one double bed and one single bed - both of which were extremely comfortable and made you fall asleep as soon as your head hit the pillow! Breakfast every morning was delicious and the staff were friendly and always wanted to help. It was very easy arranging transport and tours from the reception desk. If not, the hotel is very close to a tube station in any case. Altogether, we had a fantastic time. This hotel is great for if you want a simple family holiday with lots of sightseeing and fun. I highly recommend it!

This is a pretty decent hotel, a couple of blocks away from the Gloucester Road tube station. The rooms are quite nice, with good beds and amazing showers. The hotel layout is slightly mazelike, but nothing you won't learn to navigate after a try or two. Breakfast is definitely not impressive, but it's all right. They charge for in-room internet access, though, which I find all kinds of irritating. Oh well—it was an overall good experience, regardless.

Dear Madam

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with the feedback of your recent stay at the park international Hotel, I am delighted to read that you found your room to be of a high standard and that you had a comfortable stay with us.

It is true that the property is comprised of a number of interconnecting buildings which we feel adds to the character of the hotel and as you had mentioned easy to navigate. I am sorry to read that were unhappy with the in-room tariffs for the internet however we do offer a complimentary Wi-Fi service in the lobby area.

We do look forward to welcoming you back to the Park International Hotel soon.

My mother and I stayed at the Park International Hotel for 6 nights this September and had a wonderful stay. We were impressed with the high standard of cleanliness and customer service. Our twin room, was small but more than adequate space-wise for our needs. The room had a desk & chair, small table & chair, a large closet and 2 twin beds with end tables. The en suite bathroom had a large (for the UK/Europe) shower stall with great water pressure. The hair dryer was a surprise find as it was under the desk. Our room was very quiet and on the back side of the hotel.

The breakfast room was very large and we never had a problem getting a table. The selection was huge, empty dishes were replaced quickly and the staff was very helpful. Pots of coffee and tea are delivered by the wait staff. The Checkmate Restaurant was very pleasant as well.

The hotel is very close to both the Earl's Court and Gloucester tube stations, Kensington Park, Royal Albert Hall, 2 markets and many restaurants. I would choose this hotel on my next stay in London.

If I had to make a complaint, it would only be that the pillows are too fat, but that seems more of a personal issue than a real concern.

We stayed at the Park International for 3 nights, 1st - 4th October 2012. We had a lovely time. The room we had was 425, it was on the front of the hotel, but the busy road was no bother to us. Room and bathroom were exceptionally clean and had lovely decor. 'Thank you' to Karl for the allocation of our room! Although you don't spend a lot of time in your room, its always nice to have a good one. Bed linen and towels were beautifully clean, housekeeping was daily. The bar and reception area was very welcoming, we had a few drinks and food from the 'Checkers' bar. Very nice! We stayed at the Park International because of the museums that are all close by, within walking distance. My husband wanted to visit these. We also walked to Harrods, its not too far if you are mobile. We actually walked it to Covent Garden passing through Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square and the West End! We came back to the West End in the evening to watch the musical 'Ghost' which was excellent. This particular musical is finished after Saturday, which is a shame for those who haven't seen it. The tube station is a couple of minutes away if you don't fancy the walk. An all day tube ticket is £7pp. When I visit London again I will most certainly book into the Park International. Buffet breakfast is included in the price. Food was very nice and plenty of choice. Cooked very well too. You can have a morning newspaper as well. All the staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful, if you require anything just ask. If you are looking for a comfortable bed in a lovely clean hotel there is no need to look any further. Try it and see for yourself, I'm sure you will agree with us :o)

From the smiles on the faces of the staff, to the over abundant FREE breakfast, this hotel cannot be beat for value. Location is close to the Gloucester tube, Waitrose's and Sainsbury's (grocery stores just in case you are hungry after your huge breakfast). Hotel was clean, roomy and quiet. Even though we had a street room, there are double windows and you cannot hear a thing. The curtains were heavy enough to keep out street lights and morning light, I like to sleep in. There is a delicious Thai restaurant and 3 Italian restaurants across the street. A short walk are pubs and contemporary restaurants. The hotel also has a reasonably priced restaurant with very good food and a bar with reasonable drink prices. It is near the V&A, science and natural museums and Kensington Park, home of Princess Diana. At the tube you can pick up the red tour buses. Anyone looking for good value should chose this hotel.
