We stayed seven nights in Jun 2016 in this hotel and really enjoyed it. It is about a block from the Paddington station from which you can get to anywhere in London. Although the walk from Paddington Station is along a very busy street, the hotel is tucked in a very quiet, safe street. The street from Paddington is lined with small restaurants. We tried several but our favorite was Mimo’s Italian. The rooms are small but we had three people in our party and had plenty of room. The hotel has a very good system for issuing keys if you check in after the registration desk is closed. But if you read a review from June 2016, in which some people were not happy, that is because I mistakenly picked up their key. So don’t blame the hotel for their bad experience. The only downside for Americans is that there is no air conditioning. It was not a problem for us because we were there in June and it was cool. Also be aware that there is no daily room service, so you get to clean up and straighten up by yourself. We’d definitely state at Hyde Park Apts again if we go to London.
