The Hilton Hyde Park has a lot going for it: location right across from Hyde Park, clean and freshly painted, and professional and helpful employees. Its location also provides a much more quieter, less frenetic atmosphere than others.
But there are always a few quirks, no matter where you stay. In this case, they're not show-stoppers but you should be aware of them: First up: a ridiculously small elevator! Dimensions are approx. 4' deep by about 7' wide. No joke. So you could either get about 4 people in there or two people with luggage. This is a problem in a 6 floor hotel.
Rooms are I would say adequate, on the small side, particularly the bathroom where I kept banging into either the shower door or the sink.
Finally, drink prices in the bar are insultingly high. Drink somewhere else.
On the plus side, rooms are pretty quiet despite our's being right on Bayswater, a major thoroughfare. I noticed inner windows were installed next to the original providing a nice sound buffer. All facilities are neat, clean and functional. But the Nescafe coffee is poisinous-stay away from it.
All in all, I would recommend this hotel for its location, condition and employees.More
