Disappointed does not cover my feelings regarding this Hotel. On first impressions I was comfortable. (The rating 2 being given solely for the entrance and welcome).
Our Room was in the basement it was the best of three I had viewed. We were relegated there as we had requested a smoking room. The room was small and cramped, the bathroom filthy, black mold clung to the side of the bath the towels were threadbare and the shower took 15 minutes to warm. It was appalling. The once white net was black and the Drapes were grubby. Added to all of that the subway ran constantly under our bedroom, ALL night!!
Never ever again.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Hyde Park Towers Hotel

Great value hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
I missed my train home to Manchester recently and had to find some where cheap to stay. I found online a hotel called the Hyde Park Towers, it was in a great location, was really clean. The staff were great as i had nothing with me and sorted out a toothbrush for me and a razor.

All that for only £60 and the breakfast was quite good too.

Great cheap hotel in London

would not go back

from A TripAdvisor Member
room and bathroom were tiny... the wardrobe was infront of window & the room was so small you had no room for luggage & if you wanted to open them you had to put on bed. everytime time a train went past it seemed like the room was shaking. the breakfast was very dissapointing & plain. the location of hotel was central and the staff friendly but I will not go back to this hotel.

Fantastic

from Converse42
Excellent Location, room size more than adequate.
(We never planned to stay in the room all day - and who would!)
The staff were friendly and smiling, the room was clean and comfortable.
Would definately go back. Have the others who have written reviews stayed in the same place?
For the money I paid I just can't fault the place - really enjoyable time.

Not Too Good

from A TripAdvisor Member
Rooms and bathrooms were small as expected in London, but also run very down property. Beds were very uncomfortable, lift in hotel was very small and very slow. Breakfast is included in all rates, which consists of crossionts, rolls, creals, tea/coffee and juice only. No hot breakfast option, and breakfast room is small and overcrowded - bad set up. I would not stay at this hotel again.

Very Disappointed

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Norfolk Towers looks very nice from the front and the entrance hall. However the room had an awful smell of chemicals and the wall paper was hanging off the wall.
Due to the awful smell it was necessary to have the window open all the time. The description of the hotel claims it is in a quiet back street. The side of the hotel is on a quiet back street, but if you have a room at the front these are on a major bus route. I was woken at 5:30 every morning due to the traffic noise.
I regularly stay in London on business and would not use the Norfok Towers again, there are far better hotels available for the same price.

Think again!

Close to the tube and Hyde Park but! ask yourself if it's worth it. We had a twin room and I've seen small rooms but these take the ticket and you can't swing a cat in the bathrooms. We asked what time the restaurant opened in the evening to be told rudely "We're not really doing that tonight, we're too busy. It's more like room service." However! the menu said 'Restaurant', if it's not I suggest they remove all indications of one. So I had a diet coke, it was flat straight out of the bottle which makes me wonder how long they had it.

The next day after we'd returned in the afternoon we found they hadn't put any towels in the bathroom and so called down to the desk to find out what had happened. They said that the delivery was running late and they should be here soon. Ok that's fine, waiting ... waiting. About an hour later we saw the linen truck pull up out the front. Waiting, waiting, we waited another hour till finally I went down to the desk and "Oh yeah the towels" and shoved a stack at me. We asked for some ice another time only to be told that it would cost 1 pound for a cup of ice ... 1 pound? it's frozen water!

Everything seemed a major inconvenience to the staff. Would not recommend it.

Tiniest Rooms - Unfriendly Staff - Good Location

from Chicagobdaygal
1st night room was crammed with 3 single beds, noisy lower level, subway and kitchen noise. Completely unacceptable!! Next room - still tiny, seemed to be cleaned although I felt the need to check bed and bathroom every time I entered the room. Bar is tiny, old and bartender awfully unfriendly - bottles old!! It is in every sense a BUDGET hotel although NOT INEXPENSIVE!
Will not return.

Do not stay here!!!!

We arrived at Hyde Park Towers and thought it looked very nice but when we were given our room i almost cried....it was tiny, horrible and very dirty. The bed wasnt even a full size double, there was mould on the mirror and lampshade and the room was very dull. Every time a train went through the underground the room shook (basically every 5mins). We opened the curtain to let air through the window but found a brick wall. At night time we came back to the sound of a generator outside the room which created even more constant noise. The night porter was however very nice and switched rooms for us which did turn out to be much better. It is convenient to the tube and shops but there are much better hotels out there.

Bad hotel, good location

from A TripAdvisor Member
I've stayed in this hotel for 5 days, in september 2004. the location is good: very close to the subway (Circle and District lines just around the corner and Central Line at the end of the road, 3/5 minutes distance), lots of restaurants (queensway is a busy street).
Our room was really (and I mean REALLY) tiny and unbelievable small, with an equally small bathroom. during our stay, we could saw some better (and larger) twin rooms that face the front of the hotel (120, for example, on the 1st floor) that could be a much better option.
besides that, the staff was friendly, and the breakfast was aceptable.
i'll give it a ** just for the location, and if all you need is a safe/clean place to sleep then I guess this is a "not-so-bad" choice.

Do not stay here!

This hotel was booked for us through Creative Holidays in Australia. We were very dissapointed with the hotel overall. Rooms were small, everything seemed to hard for the staff, there appeared to be huge morale problems amongst the staff as they were often arguing with each other in front of customers etc, there was limited access to the bar, restaurant & so called coffee shop. The nearby tube station created huge noise in our room and every time a train passed, we woke up!
Despite advertising, the check in time was 1500hrs (3pm) not 2pm and when we arrived at 1pm (after a 13hr flight, we were told to go away and come back at 3pm!!
We do not recommend this hotel to any tourist.

Top Local Tips for London

Prices If you are spending Dollars, prepare to dig deep, very, very deep. Basic, nice chain restaurants are double and more than double US prices. The private taxis are about the same prices as the regular ones.

Tate Modern slides This spring Tate Modern has an exhibit that consists of spiral slides going from each floor to the ground floor. They're enclosed tubes and you ride on cloths that enclose your feet. Tickets required for floors 3 and 5. Really fun for adults and kids!

Tube Tube easy to use and clean but not as reliable on week-ends
