Close to Hyde Park
Posted Jul 15, 2016
This hotel has to looked on as purely a base. There is no restaurant or dining facility and breakfast needs to be avoided. Had breakfast on the first morning. Two hot dog style sausage, slice uncooked tomato, slice cooked tomato, one mushroom, two fried eggs, sample baked beans, two slices cucumber, approx. a dozen olives, two slices white bread, warm but not toast, no butter. Eaten on my knee, in my room. I think breakfast British style is a concept the managers don't understand. The room is adequate as a base but that is it. The furnishings need replacing, the shower is well past it's best, the bed is comfy and the sheets were clean. The room was very warm, air con unit did not work so had to sleep with the windows open which increased street noise. The management were friendly and I didn't complain about anything so to be fair they had no chance to respond. The location for Hyde Park concerts is ideal which is why I was here. Cheaper than a lot of places nearby and located well for the rest of London. Two good pubs nearby and Harrods is just around the corner.
