Historical Traveller Reviews of Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park Hotel

Merry Christmas at the Mandarin

from A TripAdvisor Member
I just returned from a three night stay at this hotel over the Christmas holiday. This hotel knows how to do it right. Beautiful traditional style with great rooms. I don't know what type of mattress and linens they use but I never slept so well in a hotel before, and I have stayed in some pretty nice ones. Friendly and accommodating staff with a great location - across from Harvey Nicks and up the block from Harrods. There were some other nice looking hotels in the area, including the Lanesborough and Dorchester if you really want to shell out some dough. Although somewhat pricey, the Mandarin was well worth every penny!

Love this place

from A TripAdvisor Member
I love this place, the feeling of being somewhere special starts as soon as you clap eyes on the place. Staff are so attentive - without being in your face - from the door being opened by a smiling face with a big red coat (So English!), to the Floor Managers that look after everything you could possibly think of. The spa is heavenly (Very Zen!), the bar is rocking and the restaurants are serene places quietly dishing up the best of the best - lots of organic! Splash out and go for a Hyde Park view, you'll be one of very view with access to such a stunning sight as soon as you open your eyes after a good nights sleep - pure Irish linen sheets - the ultimate indulgence!
I've stayed in 5 star hotels all over the world but Mandarin Orientals really are my favourite.

Oriental Magic

from A TripAdvisor Member
MARVELLOUS is one adjective that springs to mind whenever I think of this hotel. I really love to stay here where everything smacks of class and good taste. In the evening, a superb dinner in the 1 Michelin star "Foliage" restaurant where Chef Christopher Staines always suprises with new and exciting creations to make my mouth water. As The Travelling Gourmet I know good food when I taste it. If you don't believe me, please go try it yourself to see if you agree.
The hotel is so near Harvey Nichols and Harrods, which is only about 5 minutes away by foot. Even last minute shopping before your flight home is no problem.The Knightsbridge Tube station is just to the right of the main entrance about 30 meters away, so you can travel anywhere you like with ease and avoid London's terrible traffic jams. When you feel tired, simply rejuvenate in the vitality pool of the cosy and intimate Spa, probably the best of its kind in London.
I like to wake up early at 0630 to see the sunrise over Hyde Park as I jog. I did that recently, and it was so good to see the foliage in Hyde Park and breathe in the crisp, cool winter air. So incredibly refreshing! The staff are very courteous, helpful and well trained. I recommend you stay here the next time you visit London, if only to taste the fabulous food in Foliage accompanied by splendid wines from the avant garde all glass wine cellar. Bon appetit and Enjoy!

Nice location

from A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel is in a great location - minutes from Harrods and within walking distance to Fortum & Mason and other shopping and sightseeing areas. Our room was nice. I loved the long tub and the heated towel rack. It wasn't a Four Seasons, but it was pretty nice. We got a non-smoking room, but apparently not a non-smoking floor. We had to put towels on the bottom of the doorway to keep the smell of smoke out since it triggers my migraines and my husband's allergies, and the walls were pretty thin so you can hear kids wailing and phones ringing in other rooms. The view from our room sucked - we just got to look out into another room and concrete building - no Hyde Park or view of the city. The staff was hit and miss. I don't think they really went out of their way to service us, but they weren't blatantly rude either. Not a big deal, but we opened the door ourselves several times. Don't know where the doorman went, but it would have been helpful with our luggage and packages from shopping. I will say the room service was great - their staff was always super nice as was the housekeeping staff. We will probably stay again because overall it was a nice experience.

Excellent

from lottie176
I have stayed at the hotel may times and always find the staff friendly and willing to help if need be. The rooms are very comfortable and the room service is always on time and the food beautifully presented. The choice of films and music available in the rooms is brilliant with a wide choice for all ages and tastes. All the extras included in the room (choccies and jo malone toiletries etc) make the stay even more luxurious!! I'm looking forward to my next visit soon.

s Mandarin for rubbish?

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at the Madarin Oriental Hyde Park last night and so shocked am I at its disgraceful standards I had to write a review of it now. I stayed at MOHP in light of it's impeccable relative in New York but I was extremely disappointed. We stayed for four nights in the St James’ Suite and were appalled. The fitting and fixtures were rusty, there were stains on the bed and walls, and the cold tap ran hot.

The service was. On the third night of our stay we were told that maintenance would repair the suite tomorrow. One thing to anyone thinking of staying here, "stay at the Lanesborough."

The place to stay in London

from A TripAdvisor Member
Pleasantly surpised by this gem! Ask for the Victoria Suite. It is a terrific room, with plenty of space and character, and views of Hyde Park. The technology is also superior.

Set in the middle of London's finest shopping, this is a place that emphasizes service and guest happiness -- a far cry from our experience later in the week at the Savoy.

overpriced, avg hotel with very good service

from A TripAdvisor Member
we just stayed three nights. this was the most expensive hotel of five that we stayed at on the trip and was the least impressive; we won't return. the bed was uncomfortable and the drains in the bathroom were mostly clogged. not what you expect for 5-star pricing.

Hotel to Rate All Hotels

from A TripAdvisor Member
Large, comfortable rooms...beautifully decorated...tea or coffee with your wake up call....walk to Harolds or the Victoria and Albert Museum....each time we go to London we stay here!

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS

from odette31
The most gorgeous place EVER!The staff are very helpful, the suites are very luxurious. It is so fantastic because the suites feel more like private homes, and are comfortable. You can also chill out in the spa, after having indulged on cream tea and champagne in the afternoon.Good place for relaxing, but the Mandarin Bar is always buzzing, and because the bar is small and intimate, it doesn't overpower the whole hotel.

Top Local Tips for London

The Fifth Restaurant When booking a reservation at this restaurant in the Harvey Nichols, make sure you state that you want to be by the window and make sure you read the fine print on the menu - many things have a UKP5 addition.

Hyde Park We went for a quick stroll around Hyde Park after breakfast. A stroll in the park isn't normally our thing but it was really lovely. It was a crisp winter day and there were loads of people doing their thing - bikes, skates, horses, dogs. It had a really good atmosphere, was great for people watching and it was free!

Beware of Terminal 4 if you are on tight schedule and taking Heathrow Expess Heathrow express now has a connection to get to Terminal 4 (most BA nonEuro flights). It was about 20 mins!!! Thus, the "15 min" ride takes at least 35, if not 40 mins. AVOID if time is an issue - fly into and out of T1, 2 or 3.
