We had stayed in this area before, and booked this hotel based on the location, reviews & price, which didn't seem to bad, for what it looked like. On arrival we were upgraded to a supperior room, which made our stay even better! The location was great, as you can walk to Marble Arch, and easily reach Oxford st, or...

We arrived prior to check-in time, but there was no problem in dropping off our luggage. The receptionist even offered to see what he could do regarding an early check-in. We were really thirsty so we asked if we could buy some water, but the receptionist said it was on the house. Furthermore i had forgotten my adapter so i...

A bit like a Travelodge with pretensions to grandeur (colourful cushions in reception) but twice the price. Staff could do with some training on how to deal with/speak to guests and you could do without the random male staff member glowering menacingly over the receptionist's shoulder as people check in/out. Tiny rooms, no soundproofing. Not really close to anything of...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Despite being just a short hop away from the West End of London, Arbor Hyde Park feels like it's a million miles from the intense whirl of nearby Marble Arch. Hidden away on a quiet loop that curves off from the main stretch of Lancaster Gate, the hotel provides its guests with a level of quiet seclusion rarely found in so accessible a location. Housed within a beautiful Victorian terrace, just a couple of minutes' walk from the trees, lakes and green spaces of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, Arbor Hyde Park offers a style of meticulous but unobtrusive service that matches the simple elegance of its architecture. The hotel has been designed for the comfort and convenience of its guests, with an emphasis on understated quality. There aren't many places in central London that can claim to be genuinely restful. The Royal Parks can make a good case; Arbor Hyde Park, which looks out over one of those parks, can too. ... more   less
