Glendale Hyde Park Hotel
Ranked #905 of 1,072 Hotels in London
Reviewed December 14, 2006

The rooms are small but cosy and comfortable enough. The toilets need some getting used to but at least there's hot water. They don't top up your shampoo and bath gels daily, so you better bring your own. (Or maybe it's becos i didn't leave a daily tip!!)

There are limited TV channels (no satellite as advertised).

For breakfast - it is advisable you wake up super early and head down to get some seats like 15 mins before the official time, if not you will be standing around waiting helpless anyway. And don't expect much spread - it's bread, cheese, cornflakes, milk, juice and coffee EVERY morning.

Pray you don't get the upper floors cos lugging your bags thru the narrow (and i mean narrow) stairway is no joke.

Location-wise, it is a 5 minute brisk walk to Paddington Station. Very convenient to get around.

The hotel reception people are very friendly and personable.

If you are not too high maintenance, this bed and breakfast is good enough.

The rooms were clean, the staff friendly, & it is located close to Paddington Station & Hyde Park. On our 1st stay we were on the top floor & the stairs were 'interesting' for my husband who has bad knees but the desk clerk helped, The 2nd time we stayed there the hotel was overbooked but they squeezed us into a small room in the basement- not great, very small bathroom, but well maintained. The breakfast in the morning was simple but of unlimited amounts in the time alloted. I particularly liked the international nature of the guests. Internet worked (the desk clerk was very patient with me) & the small lobby was often filled with guests who were hanging out- all very friendly. The price is low so don't expect alot of frills or space but what there is, is good.

At £65 a night for a double room in Central London I certainly wasn't expecting luxury but I certainly wasn't expecting a cramped pokey room in the basement where the toilet could only be used by sitting sideways. The bedside lamp was hanging off the wall and there was only one dirty blue plastic cup in bathroom.

Luckily my husband and I are of normal proportions - anyone slighty overwight would have great difficulty in managing in these conditions. I usually book toursist class hotels and have got some good deals in the past- however the weekend of 13-15 October was very busy which is why I ended up in the Glendale.
I am just sorry I didn't pay more for better accommodation as it spoit a very good weekend in London. Luckily the weather was great and we only had to sleep in the place.
