“Quite and small hotel close to Hyde Park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Stayed for four nights in October. Room in first floor against back room, no view. Stayed before in a great room in forth floor with small terrace with a great view towards the mews, missed this feature!

Room small, but with big bathroom with a great shower, and the cleaning of the room was good. Carpets on floor.

Breakfast good for a continetal buffet. The hotel bar was very quite, and this reflected the choices on beers, with just two brands in bootles.

Close to subway, both Lancaster Gate and Bayswater.

Disappointing that on a hotel with this rate for rooms don´t provide free wi-fi - this is expected in 2012.

The hotel rooms are quite small and the building is just about heratige listing.The breakfast and dinner meals were good.The lift to meals area is very small,two people with cases will struggle.Opposite to Hyde Park which is worth a walk through.The hop on hop off bus is not far from the hotel.

we stayed in this hotel when we went to see the last night of the proms in September. For just one night this hotel was okay but such a small room for the price. Our bathroom was bigger than our actual room. The room overall was very clean and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast was the biggest dissapointment as we thought we would get a cooked breakfast and told when we arrived to the restaurant that we had to pay another £10 each if we wanted a cooked breakfast, seeing as we payed nearly £100 for the room (that was tiny) you would think you would get a decent breakfast. The location is really good for the tube station and also hyde park. Very nice hotel but wouldnt come again as too highly priced.

Positives: The Commodore looks very impressive as you walk up and is a nice hotel in a good location. The rooms are a fine size. The shower is powerful. The beds are comfortable.

Negatives: It is ROASTING hot with no air con, even in autumn we couldn't sleep for the heat. Our shower was broken (but someone did fix it quickly). My bed sheets were ripped. I really wouldn't recommend the restaurant - at breakfast there was a long queue to get seated. Luckily there was only two of us so we got a table quicker. The food was ok and service okish. We went down for dinner as we'd had a long day and we were the only people there (on a Sat nght!). The waitresses weren't particularly good even with so few customers and the food was average to say the best (my friend who had come to meet us had burger and chips and her chips were completely bizarre - really greasy with no potato inside)... The lift is teeny.

Overall: We got a good deal (£119 on booking.com) and it was handy for us as we were visiting Kensigton Palace (it's right across the road from the lovely Kensington Gardens) but I was slightly disappointed but not enough to warn people off at all.

Room Tip: Our room was very warm and we were on the top floor - perhaps lower floors would be cooler

This hotel is in quit area and close to Underground Stop. Room was not big but if your just looking to visit London nothing wrong with this place. Also a nice pub close by. The breakfast was decent and not bad to start your day off. Across the street from Hyde Park.

The Commodore is a quietly stately hotel, located in the Bayswater section of London, just off of Hyde Park. The rooms, which come in varying sizes, are simple and very comfortable. The hotel offers a continental buffet breakfast and full dinner (dinner menu is very good, but service can be a little slow at times). The entire front (Reception), restaurant and housekeeping staff is very responsive and helpful.

Located close to public transportation [taxis/bus and tube (subway)] it is very convenient to access Central London as well as long-distance rail and air service.

Whenever my wife and/or I are in London, The Commodore is our "home".

Room Tip: Given the speed of the service provided, if you are on a tight time-table [i.e. business meeting; pl...

Stayed at the Commodore for a third time, having been cleaned up on the exterior along with the rest of the area this hotel really covers all bases. Good location, near to a tube station, short walk and youre in Hyde park, decent rooms, maybe on the small size(most London rooms are at this price level) good continental breakfast (full cooked at a suppliment) The staff always very helpful and polite. All in all a great place to stay.The only negative is that the ground floor rooms tend to be a little noisy from rooms and corridors above.

Room Tip: Avoid the ground and lower ground if possible, but this is a very minor issue.
