We stayed at the Lancaster Gate Hotel in order to attend a concert in Hyde Park. The hotel was very close to Hyde Park and to tube station so location was ideal.
We arrived at the hotel too early to get into room, but were able to check in and leave our luggage. The staff on reception were very pleasant.
After a quick drink at the bar we made our way to hyde park. Drinks were average price for a London bar.
When we arrived back at the hotel after the concert there were a couple of people waiting to check in but the queue moved very quickly.
We were given our room number and told it was on the basement level! So down in the lift we went!.
The room was tiny to say the least, probably the smallest hotel room I have ever stayed in!
The fittings were a bit dated but the room was spotlessly clean, with everything you would need for an overnight stay including an iron and tea and coffee making facilities.
The TV did not work in our room, we could not get a signal, probably because we were in the basement.
When we woke in the morning it was so dark I thought it must be an awful day, we couldn't see anything out of our windows apart from walls! But when we went upstairs the sun was blasting out, just not getting down to the basement level!!
Breakfast was good, the usual servings of hot english, cereals and fruit and some continental items, staff worked hard as the restaurant was quite busy.
All in all an ok stay and served its purpose, I would probably stay there again if I went to the concert again.
