We woke up on our first morning very early to water pouring into the ensuite from a shower in the room above through the light. We were given a key to a basement room to have a shower etc only for the shower to fall of the wall and hit me. The second room was a joke... drawers that fell off on to your feet and a broken toilet seat. The springs in the bed were like lying on a bed of nails. The third room was ok but no signal on the television! To sum it up the rooms were all tiny, plaster falling off the walls. The lifts were tiny (4 persons) you could just about squeeze into the larger lift (2 people in a 4 person lift)... Oh yes almost forgot I had a plumber/builder walk into our room (I am female)with a knock and before I could answer the door it opened.... So I screamed at him to get out!! We couldn't find another hotel as you have to pay as soon as you walk in to the hotel. All we got was £11... I WOULD NOT reccommend this hotel.

We arrived to London too late to
choose a new hotel, so we had to
stay there one night. We were two
down to earth, non-prissy girls
that are used to traveling
on our own and we were SCARED !

* We had to sleep with the lights
on because of the roaches.

* The door would not lock and was
just barely hanging on so we shoved
a chair under the door knob.

* The door to the balcony, that was shared
by many hotel rooms, would not lock.

* Holes in the bathroom walls,

* Service was horrendous !!!

And the list goes on...
Needless to say, we woke up early
the next morning, went to a cafe,
grabbed their phone book and booked
a room at another establishment.
The Most Disgusting Hotel in London

The Hotel from the pictures looks lovely, but these pictures must have been taken when the hotel was built many years ago. The Rooms are dirty, they smell, they are unsafe and if you dont mind sharing your room with rats then go ahead. Bed linen was filthy and there are rat traps in the rooms. When I asked at reception I was told they are there by law.
Nonsense they are there coz they must have a rodent problem. Smelly, dirty, old, I would strongly recommend you NOT TO GO TO THIS HOTEL!!!! for your healths sake

Very horrible hotel do not stay there even if it is free. The lifts are so small that one person can't into it. The shower was partially broken, and the water didn't go down the drain. The rooms and bed linen is dirty and it smells as well. It is an hotel from hell for now so don't go there for now...the GOOD NEWS is that is currently being refublished... it was about time

The room had no plug for Bath which meant no Bath. The staff were unhelpful and difficult to understand. The breakfast is a complete DIY job, if you want a cooked breakfast then you have to pay extra. Not pleasent and not cheap.
We were robbed!

Someone broke into our room while we were sleeping! They stole a purse and briefcase. I found the briefcase in the stairwell. The staff were not helpful. They only changed our dirty room when the police insisted. There are no latches on the inside doors.
This hotel has a great location, close to the tube, buses and Hyde Park. Not a place to stay in London. Don't do it!
Good Location, Close To Underground Stations And Hyde Park

Poor service in bar and breakfast restaurant.
Very small rooms , dirty, not well maintained.
It is clear that the price reflects the locating and not
the quality of the rooms/service.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Queens Park Hotel

....as if the nightly room rate wasnt horrid enough!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
....the room was extremely tiny and we asked to use a fan to circulate some air. They requested 5 pounds per night to use a fan! The bed appeared to an oversized twin and we felt like we were sleeping inside a hostess box. The location of the hotel was nice; close to the Tube and Hyde Park.
Breakfast was horrible. Next time we will research longer for a bit better bargain for our many pounds spent there.

Queens Park limitations

from A TripAdvisor Member
The location is good, the pictures of the hotel interior in the advertising info were taken some time ago when the hotel was newly refurbished. The rooms are very cramped and decidedly tatty and quite dirty, many of the facilities don't work. We gave up- no TV working, lightbulbs missing, leaks and cracks in the bathroom. The carpets are worn through and repaired with silver duct tape. The bedding is clean and the beds quite comfortable. The breakfasts were good. For the most part the staff were helpful, efficient and pleasant. Once it is refurbished again, I am sure it will be good, but for now, don't expect too much.
Its OK if all you want is somewhere to sleep, you are out all the time and you are not too fussy about a bit (lot) of dust. You wouldn't want to spend much time in the rooms.

Good Location- Very basic Room

from Kayelache
Dispite the warnings from this website, we stayed here three nights in July, 2004. We have stayed in other London hotels like this (converted Victorians) some 20 years ago, so were not surprised at the tiny elevator (lift) or small rooms. However, back in the 80's the rooms, at between 5 and 10 pounds sterling, per person, came with a full Brittish breakfast that would last you until dinner. Queen's Park breakfast was coffee, rolls, jam and a couple of choices of cereal. For $15 US you could upgrade to a Brittish breakfast, but even it was scanty compared with what used to be offered.
Our room seemed clean and we were not aware of a lot of noise. Maybe we are sound sleepers.
A big, big plus, however, was the location. It was a half hour walk to almost anywhere in London. Loved being just minutes from Hyde Park, and Baywater area was delightful. Good shopping and lots of interesting ethnic restaurants.
I don't know if I would recommend the hotel or not.
It certainly is not luxurious or equivalent to even the most basic US type accomodations. But this is LONDON! I think I would, to more adventurous friends who like a good bargain. We booked on Skyauction, and paid less than $100 US per night.

Unacceptable Room

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel was advertised as a 3-star by hotels.com. The room we got was below a 2-star. They gave us a dirty basement room with soiled bed covers and dingy interior, even when there were other rooms available. When questioned about the room and how it was not as advertised (in website photos) response was "Only the best room is shown on the website." After much pressure, they gave us a better room, which was adequate at best. We will never stay here again.

Not so great

from amrkitty
I don't consider myself a picky person, but this place left a lot to be desired. My husband and I stayed here for only the first night we arrived in London. Maybe we were cranky from the jet lag, but here are the complaints: staff not accomodating or helpful. When we checked out the next morning at 5:30 am, we at first thought there was no one working at the alleged 24-hour desk, but my husband found someone asleep on the couch in the lounge-turns out that was the person we had to wake up to check us out. Elevator-I thought the previous reviewers were exaggerating, but the elevator is ridiculous. The two of us (physically fit young people) had one carry on each- and only one of us could fit on the elevator. When we took the stairs, they ended at the first floor, but our room was on the second. Nothing was marked, we had no idea how to continue going upstairs. So, we actually had to start trying doors to find where the second set of stairs were. Room-Smelled so musty I felt sick to my stomach. Nice view from the window of the creaky fire excape. No matress pad-sheets directly on old funky mattress. Room was microscopic but typical of London sizes I guess. Redeeming qualities: Bathroom was small, but very clean and new. Very near a Big Bus Tour drop off/pick up point. Very near a tube station. Safe area of town. Hyde Park within view of the front door. Overall, I can't say I reccomend this place to even the most budget-minded people.

ok for people on a budget

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed here for a week whilst working in London. I was pleased to find a hotel for £50/night for a double room including breakfast which was apparently 1/3 of the normal cost of £140/night (through laterooms.com). The room was extremely small. It had tea/coffee facilites. Continental breakfast consisted of croissants, jam & a choice of 2 cereals. Hot food was extra cost.

On the plus point, the location is fantastic. Not bad for people on a budget. I had no problem with noise & the place was clean & rooms daily serviced.

Never, EVER, again. EVER. (Did I say ever?)

from fredandkell
We stayed at the Queens Park in London at the end of May 2004. The good: great location (the Bayswater area is really fun, with lots of ethnic restaurants and convenient access to two good Tube lines; laundry and drug stores right down the street, easy access to Hyde Park). The bad: This is the most noisy, least soundproofed hotel I have EVER stayed at. Generally my husband and I love a good deal, and we don't mind roughing it a bit (I mean, in London, you just need basic accomodations - most of your time is spent sightseeing). HOWEVER, this hotel was God-awful. The floors creaked like they were about to fall through with the tiniest of steps; the walls were paper thin (we heard EVERY traveller coming home, especially the drunk ones late at night - our third night there I burst into tears because I could not fall asleep due to the noise - we would have changed hotels if we didn't want to spend our valuable sightseeing time doing it); smoking is allowed in the lobby and elevators, so the place always stunk; at the breakfast was meager at best. The rooms were OK; a little small, but hey, nowhere near as small as a cruise ship; the bathroom was cramped but had the essentials; the TV got 3 channels. But again, I would NEVER go back here or recommend it to anyone because of the sheer noise level! HORRIBLE!!!!! I recommend instead staying on Glouster Road - we passed a very nice Mariott and a Holiday Inn there. No more local European hotels for me (local apparently means a creaky old Victorian house).

Very disappointed

from A TripAdvisor Member
My advice to anyone considering staying at this hotel is Don't stay there in the summer months. Fortunately we only stayed for one night. The weather had been good & the temperature was in the 70s which made the hotel feel like a suana! The rooms were absolutely stifling. There is no air conditioning & not even a fan in the room. The lifts to the upper floors are the tiniest I've ever seen, the corridors are so narrow that we struggled to carry our bags without bashing into the wall. The carpets throughout the hotel are worn, especially on the stairs. The first room we were offered was on the first floor and was tiny & dark with a bathroom that was in desperate need of refurbishment. We declined this room & were offered a room on the fifth floor. This was only marginly better but at least it was light. The room was so small that the tiny double bed was pushed up against the wall. The window hinges were broken on the top window making it impossible to close. The bathroom was just about big enough but at least the shower worked.
The hotel looked quite good on the internet but sadly failed to live up to expectation. Basically the rooms are extremely tiny & the hotel would seriously benefit from the installation of air conditioning. We won't be staying there again!

Excellent value for money!!!!

from findmejak
Great hotel for £33 per night including continental breakfast
Did not expect the Ritz hotel facilities when paying for budget hotel
Very friendly helpful staff, spotlessly clean room, room adequate size for me, as left hotel in the morning to return at night then out again
Excellent value for money!!!

Nice small hotel

from axltope
We stayed at Queens Park Hotel for 5 nights at Easter, we got one of the mezzanine rooms, rooms are small (3X3 meters), be aware that double bed was 190x125cm!!!, location is not at the center but central line underground is just 3 minuts walking from the hotel, and For those who love jogging Hyde Park is just 1 minute. Continental breakfast is just to survive... We would return there..hotel is clean and for that price is the best that you can get in London. ah!! the lift is the smaller I've ever seen in my life

Top Local Tips for London

Oyster If having more than a couple of days in the capital or are planning to return within a few months we would recommend buying an Oyster Card. It can be used on both buses and tube and you just swipe it at the turnstiles and top it up when you have used your credit.

Stay at the Thistle Marble Arch! This place was amazing. It's pricey, but stay in true luxury and do London the right way.

on the busses get a all day all round pass from one of the machines outside all bus stops,they allow you to get on and off all busses (exept tour busses) with 1 single ticket,and the best part is they run all day uptill 4.30 in the morning,the price june 2007 was £.3.50 for an adult which is much cheaper than the tube or in a taxi.great value for money. -------------- also leave plenty of time if getting taxi from bayswater area into west end area of london this can take upto 45mins in heavy traffic,so if your going to the theatre,leave in plenty of time to spare,better to get there early and have a drink, than late and miss some of the show.
