My first impression was what the heck is this hotel. A doorway and flight of steps. Another flight of steps to our tiny room. Room was clean and sparce. No wash cloths, glass for taking medicine or little space for luggage. Hotel info needs to state that it can not handle handicap people.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean, but tiny!"
I am used to tiny rooms in London, but this was very small. I was by myself with a double bed, but don't know how 2 people would fit in the room. I barely had room to set my suitcase down. Bathrooms were new and updated, but very very small. It was clean, I am only 5'2", and it did have air conditioning during a hot summer stay. I personally would rather […] have the air conditioning than more space. You are also on a very busy street, but I travel with earplugs. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Don't stay here."
The room was dirty and very small. No elevator to help with the luggage. I would recommend that nobody ever stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not a home away from home"
Very boring and unfulfilledGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"you get what you pay for"
Small rooms with poor matresses. But this is not the Ritz, so what do you expect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Adequate lodging in a good location"
This hotel is in a good location, surrounded by interesting places to eat and shop. It's convenient to the tube. The hotel rooms are pretty awful, the decor is a cross between an asylum and a prison. The walls are paper thin so it is really noisy from both the other rooms and the street outside. The hotel standard is that of a very basic youth hostel […] but with private rooms and a hotel price tag! Breakfast is quite good. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I have stayed in London at least a dozen times; this was one of the worst. Seriously: only instant coffee at breakfast? Windows screwed shut but "air conditioning" that did not work? A bed with springs that poked my back all night? I could go on, but the bottom line is that I won't be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a great location, noisy room."
Room was very clean, and very very noisy. I wouldn't recommend unless you are looking for a place that is just barely better than a hostel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient but not worth it"
I stayed during the Olympics (so not taking into the account the extreme increase in price as compared to its normal cost). The good...GREAT location near the Bayswater undergoing station. Extremely convenient in this regard as well as the number of really close restaurants. The not so good...the AC didn't work well at all (I had it set on 18C and it […] felt like it was only putting out around 25C), one morning there was no hot water, the room was extremely noisy (if youre put next to the stairs, ask to be moved)- every time the stairwell door opened, it slammed shut (at ALL hours of the night) and every room door slammed (they need to invest in the things that make doors shut more quietly)and also a big annoyance was that you had to put a deposit down just to get a TV and AC remote. So If you're looking for cheap and easy place to rest your head, stay here; otherwise look elsewhere. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bad value for money"
Would never stay in the hotel again !! Run down !! breakfast area had holes in the ceiling with paint peeling off !!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nothing Royal about it"
Very small room. Can hardly turn around. Bathroom was also small, but was modern and clean. I heard a motor running all night, maybe from an elevator. Location is good to Hyde Park and subway. I walked to Paddington Station to catch the Heathrow Express to the airport. Very easy to do. Breakfast was also good. Not too many choices, but enough.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Parking was a pain but it is London. Plenty of places to eat and drink. shopping and Tube also very handy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Forget the budget tag!"
Forget the budget tag, this hotel is probably Londons' most expensive hotel per square metre, but without the charm and service. ROOM: Imagine a white washed prison cell (3x3m) and you pretty much have it - except this space was not a single/twin, but a family room. Now imagine a small double bed and double bunk (2 adults/2 kids), no furniture and about […] 400mm of space between beds - yes we fell over each other and our luggage constantly - not exactly relaxing. The room was clean, but given its size, not much effort required. FOOD: Breakfast OK, but no healthy options. The concierge can smile, but not much else, they have no authority to do anything except take back your key when you leave. MANAGEMENT an "invisible manager" (we never laid eyes on him) roams about London servicing other "magicstay" hotels in London. Apparently HPH is too small to have a full time manager, no arguments there. So don't bother complaining if you have a problem. SECURITY non-existent: the one and only concierge has an obstructed view of the hotel stairs and corridors, which are easily accessed from the busy street. Luckily we only booked for 2 nights, which is 2 too many in my book. There are better options for families in homestay apartments all around London, we stayed nearby for 5 days, slightly more expensive but had a full kitchen, garden, ample space, two toilets modern bathroom - these are minimum 3 days usually though. For a night or two, spend the extra, trust me your worth it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not a good experience"
poor service,rude staff.impossible to find with or without satnavGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Location but very unfriendly."
My family went to London for a spot of sight seeing for 5 days, staying for 4 nights. We had a family room which was small but the beds were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was disappointing as there was not much variety but it was the staff that was the most disappointing. They were not friendly and came across as unhelpful and rude. When you said […] Good Morning to them they just ignored you, no reply and not even a smile. The first morning we arrived we had sat down with our cerial and they started clearing away the milk and bread. We witnessed other guests another morning experiencing the same. One man asked for rolls for his children and was told they were finished. When he asked why there was not enough for his children to get one he was met with a shrug and she walked away.You felt you did not want to be there, you were more a nuisance than a paying guest.

Nice people anfd friendly staff, very helpful and curtious.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Conveniently located, kind staff."
We enjoyed staying in London, the hotel was close to the city centre. We walked from the hotel to Notting Hill, Portobello Road, Kensigton Palace and Harrods. Also very close to the underground stations of both Queensway and Bayswater. The room was small but clean. We could easily leave our luggage past the checking out, nice and helpful staff. We would […] definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel next to the underground."
It was a nice hotel. Reading all the other comments, I expected it to be worst. The room was very small but had a renovated private bathroom. I was on the 4th floor with a view on the street, so noise wasn't a problem. Breakfast was basic. Yes, they take a deposit for using remote controls for TV and AC, I guess that they want to make sure that the […] guests won't brake them. For this price in a primary location in London, I think it was a very good experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Good location. Nice staff. Independent yet small room. Good hotel. I recommend it highly!Genuine Expedia guest review
I'd gladly stay here again despite the negatives -- super small room and bed, poor carpeting, no desk to work at in room etc. But the location more than makes up for all this. Close to two tube stations in central London! You ca't beat this location. Helpful staff. No elevators, so be prepared to lift your heavy bags up the stairs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was in a very central location but really noisy as just above restaurants and near bars and shops.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not good hotel at all"
No kettle inside the room. Remote tv suppose inside room but have to deposit to get the remote control. Cannot take water frm hotel breakfeast room. Room services late clean my room. This hotel no lif so very difficult to bring our big luggage to top floor. Room to cramp.Genuine Expedia guest review
Had a very nice stay at the hotel. Very good breakfast and a helpfull staff. The beds were mediocre, but all in all a happy family of four :)Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect location. Terrible service."
Unfriendly receptionist. Terrible service, when we asked for another blanket. Noisy beds on every little move. But perfectly located. Loved the area and very close to Kensington Gardens.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Grat hotel and location, could have been improved by a kettle in the room and never happy about having to pay a deposit for a remote controlGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fit for purpose"
My room was small with double bed against window, but fine for single occupancy. (Equally OK if young and in lust) Clean comfortable on 4th floor - no lift, but reasonably quiet. Staff friendly and helpful. Basic continental breakfast. First rate value and would return for one/two nights.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Royal Hyde park hotel"
The hotel was very clean very near bayswater and queensway tube station staff very helpful rooms are very small but very clean no lift so you need to be fit if you are carrying luggage. Breakfast was quite chaotic in that there was not enough space. Would I stay again ? CertainlyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Clean Hotel."
Beds were comfortable. Shower was good. Staff were polite and helpful. Location was perfect for the Carnival. Allowed to make tea and coffee in the breakfast room whenever you want.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenience with low level of comfort"
Hotel is very conveniently located with the tour bus stop a few minutes walk away and an underground station a few metres away.The rooms have space for the bed and two suitcases. The TV is mounted on the wall since there is no space for a table. Bathrooms match the size of the bedroom. Linen towels and the toilets are clean. TV and Ac do not have remotes. […] One needs to give a deposit to get them. No coffee makers but they offer you coffee and tea at the dining room. Basic breakfast is served. During rush hours in the morning you may not get a place to sit. Check out at 11 and check in at 2 pm as per the receptionist. Free internet available in the dining room. Do not travel with heavy luggage. There are no lifts. With a very heavy suitcase and room on the 4th floor had a very tough time. Staff is friendly. The name ROYAL is misleading. The entrance is only 4 feet wide. Unless you see the board placed on the pavement you can miss it. If you just want a room for a nights sleep at a very convenient location this can be a reasonable option. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"One Night Only"
Not good access to hotel or rooms for people with stiff joints, no lift, very small rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was nice, clean and beds were comfy. However it did have a few downsides which would prevent me staying again (1) the rooms were tiny! (2) there were no facilities in the room - no tea and coffee making facilities, you had to pay a deposit with the desk to get a remote for the tv... (3) room I had was on the roadside and quite noisy (4) there […] were two flights of stairs to get up to the reception area which I did not realise at the time and was a significant down side as i am currently on crutches and it is difficult to walk.

"Extremely small rooms"
Hotel was lovely and clean but once you put your suitcases in the room you had no room to move they are very small. Access to the reception is very narrow with stairs no lifts very tight area. No coffee/tea facilities in the room. But in a great location for sightseeing LondonGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"good for an overnight stay"
Easy to get to, although almost missed the front door. Small basic room, but comfy and warm. Free breakfast we'll received. As a budget overnight stop in London it's fine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good value for money"
I visited London for one night. For it's price it was clean and decent. I would recommend it for someone who just wishes to have some sleep in a clean hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I had a horrible time at this hotel. The staff was not helpful, acted as if they did not want to be there and was at times downright rude. This hotel is more like an overpriced youth hostel. They beds were uncomfortable and my sheets had a tear in them. My room faced the street which was LOUD. I was awakened numerous times throughout the night. I cancelled […] my stay and found a new hotel after only 1 night (I was booked for 5). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable hotel in Bayswater close to Hyde Park"
The Royal Hyde Park Hotel is very conveniently located in the centre of London. The room had obviously been recently refurbished and was small but perfectly adequate for an overnight stay in the heart of London. It was very clean and, indeed there was an aroma of disinfectant. The room overlooked the busy Queensway and there was some noise (what you […] would expect in a city centre hotel) not enough to keep us awake though. Just one comment about breakfast - the times are clearly posted as 0730-0930 - make sure you've had anything you need before 0930 because everything is cleared away exactly at 0930!

On the plus side is good being close to tube&bus stops & places to eat.The negative being small rooms,my first was on the 4th floor (no elevator) with a noisy exhaust -fan from the restaurant below out-side the window till 11pm .The next room was even smaller with creaking floor boards on the room above.The hotel has been freshly painted with decent […] although cramped showers & toilet.O K for short stay Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent value for money"
The room was extremely clean and comfortable, the negatives being acceptable for the price paid for the room.

But I would happily stay again for a reasonable price: the location is excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
basic room but practicle. room itself was very clean and the ensuite was too, actually it was spotless! located in a busy happening street, loads of various eateries nearby, various shops and the tube just a stones throw. staff pleasant. tv worked fine for what we saw of it. all in all a very good place to stay and would go there again without a do […] ubt.

"ROYAL HYDE PARK HOTEL IS NOT IT."
I have never stayed in a more terrible place. It is not supposed to be found in Hotels.com. All the pictures they had online was not what I saw. They had hospital-like beds that were too low and too small for an adult. Who offers a hotel room in this age without a table or a chair? Lets not even talk about other necessary amenities like a house phone, […] internet facility, refidgirator or proper lighting. My stay, to say the least was extreemly uncomfortable and I wouldnt recommend the hotel to anyone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room better than outside suggests!"
Very seedy location and entrance. Reception in need of, or possibly undergoing, repair - hard to tell. Room was, however, better than feared. Small, basic but clean and newly fitted shower room worked fine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not for business travellers"
Terrible. Staff were new and didn't know what services were provided. Required a deposit for an iron, but could not provide an ironing board, later stuffing a note under my door to state that ironing boards were not supplied to guests. Entrance way a mess with building waste on the carpet. Room tiny, single glazed onto a busy main road and what sounded […] like karaoke in the nearby pub until after 1am. Instant coffee was the highlight of breakfast. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Rent, bra sängar ,bra lägeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Det viste seg å være et hull i taket på mitt rom (402) og jeg våknet av at det dryppet vann på gulvet. Fikk skiftet rom. Veldig små rom. Burde enkelt kunne hengt opp noen knagger på døren og veggen. God frokost med nybrygget kaffe og varme croissanter bl.a. Greit nok for et par netter alene. Kommer sikkert igjen. Kjekt og trygt nærområde.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotellet var fint til prisen. Det lå forholdsvis centralt og der var to stationer lige i nærheden. Fint gåafstand til Hyde Park og ind til centrum. Værelset var lidt lille, men fejlede intet. Der var et pænt badeværelse og en ok seng. Morgenmaden var fin og enkel med toast, ost og div. pålæg. Personalet var søde og de hjalp gerne hvis man havde spørgsmål. Der […] var heller ikke nogen problemer med at stille ens kuffert, når man havde checket ud. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
