Historical Traveller Reviews of Ramada Hyde Park Hotel

Average

from SafeTravelsGirl
We stayed at the Ramada Hyde Park two weeks ago. The elevator is very slow (stairs are much quicker), and the rooms are only average, but clean. Nice bar and restaurant downstairs, and hotel is very close to Portabello Market, the tube, and of course, Hyde Park. Depending on the price, this might be an OK place to stay if you aren't accustomed to the Ritz.

Bank Holiday Banging

from JayTheDuke
We stayed at The Ramada on the Sunday night of Notting Hill Carnival because we wanted a base near to all the action and somewhere to rest our heads after a day of walking and dancing. Rest being the word that we never experienced.

Unfortunately the Management had decided that the morning of the Bank Holiday Monday would be a great time to rip up and relay the carpet on our floor. BANG BANG BANG for more than 3 hours.

We had already scheduled a late checkout so were quite unimpressed that they had given us this floor to sleep on.

We also found the staff to be particularly rude when we complained.

On the other hand the hotel was clean and the rooms quite comfortable (although out window had been smashed).

Overall it was cheap and cheerful but due to an oversight by the management was a complete disaster. My first and last stay in a Ramada Jarvis I'm afraid.

Good Value

from ME13
A pleasant surprise. I have stayed in London many times, and find that accommodation can be a bit hit or miss. Considering what I paid for my room here, I was really surprised to find a hotel:
- in an excellent location just opposite Kensington Gardens
- with exemplary staff who were professional polite and kindness itself
- a good sized room with a very comfortable bed
- a modern and clean bathroom
I would recommend this hotel because it is great value for money. I will be staying there again next time I'm in town.

heat wave in our room

from avicky
the pros were the staff were fine within its limitations.
i had read about the staff and was prepared, but i found them to be helpful and friendly, except with the air condition problem. they were not prepare and and management left the desk staff to take the heat sort of speak. we were one of the lucky ones, our windows opened and a fan was provided after my assertive friend asked for one. we should not of had to ask nor should one of the rooms not have one. some guests had no fan and no open window. Shame on the RAMADA Management who knows better. I would not seek aout a RAMADA again, i don't have too.
and yes if the AC is not an issue as it is the fall. then the location is great, close to bus, tube and shopping.
on another note, this hotel was picked by GLOBUS, they also should of taken an active part in this problem, it colored our trip till we got to the crown plaza in amsterdam, which of course was excellent

Not the best Ramada Inn

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed here for our anniversary and the best thing going for it is the location,very close to tubes, main bus routes & of course Hyde Park.
We were on the 7th floor Sky Studios so expected a little more from the room, it was quite small with no mini bar/fridge and the air conditioniong for this time of year was useless & very noisy situated under the window. we had to leave our curtains shut all the time & it was still only just bearable.
The lobby was the coolest place to be.
Our sink had a large crack in it & the floor tiles in the bathroom had grout coming out of them.
We did not feel that the staff were that friendly although they were polite.
The lift seemed to go where it wanted on occassion but at least it was working. Breakfast on a Saturday was a nightmare it was so busy we skipped & went to a local restaurant, then opted for Breakfast in the room on Sunday- which was actually better than expected with yogurt & fruit.
I dont think we will stay here again as there are a lot better places in London for your money.

hot hot hot

from benidormfan
we stayed for 2 nights during one of our rare heat waves and this hotel is not equiped for this. we were one of the lucky guests staying in upgraded room with portable electric fan provided. rooms are small but adequate. dining room is not cleaned {last nights crumbs on floor at breakfast) location is great. tube station and bus stop nearby. would only stay here again if rate was excelent. certainly not worth even half of the advertised rate in hotel. also let down by very unfriendly staff.

Dreadful restaurant

from SeanWorcesterUK
The room was OK - small but normal for London. The restaurant was dreadful. Bought-in fish pie with frozen mixed veg and boiled potatoes for 15 pounds. That isn't good enough - it's an insult. Next day a beef stew which was gristly, chewy and uneatable. It can't be that hard to find a chef who can select decent ingredients and prepare them in a palatable way. Over £3 for beer in the bar? No, this isn't worth the money. They just don't try.

Great Location

from FEEFEE0808
My brother and I stayed a week at the Ramada Hyde Park March 13th-19th 2005. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet offered a great selection of food and it was quite tasty.The room was a nice size & the bathroom had a nice long bath tub. However, all the bathrooms don't have bathtubs so if you want one, you need to request it. The location is the best part about this hotel. It's close to and between Queensway & Notting Hill Gate train stations. We were able to take the train from the airport very close to the hotel which was very inexpensive. Hyde Park is right across from the hotel and Kensington Palace is within walking distance. Many buses stop in front of or very near the hotel. There are 2 lovely churches on the side street of the hotel. It's within walking distance to many stores, restaurants, thrift shops, Portabello Market, etc. Overall, the hotel could use remodeling, but the location and other amenities make up for the shortcomings of the hotel. Also, the hotel is in a very lovely neighborhood. I would definitely stay there again.

Good experience except for the elevator

from SeattleRedBear
I'll agree with several comments posted earlier. We were in what appeared to be a recently renovated room on the 6th floor in the back of the hotel. Small by american standards, but better than many places I've stayed in London. The only negatives were the elevators (which were completely out one day and we could never call to the 6th floor...ever...we would have to go down one floor to call the elevator....we figured this out after a couple days of walking down six flights whenever we left the room). And one morning the wait for breakfast was excessively long (20 minutes to get seated). Checkin was a breeze, but the dining room was pretty unorganized.

The location is great, but one word of warning if you're staying there over the next few months. Central Line tube trains are not running on the weekends from Acton Town (I think) to Oxford Circus. Thus the buses running along Regent/Oxford/Kensington were PACKED! If you're thinking of staying here on a weekend and relying on the tube, you might check the London Transport website to see if the weekend closures are still in effect.

Good Hotel in a good position

from gambotta
Good staying in London in the first week of January. The hotel is close to HydePark, very near to 3 Underground Stations and ten minutes far from Portobello road.
The room was confortable but I didn't find an acceptable breakfast.
Though the fare I get it, it's a good stay.

Top Local Tips for London

Oyster card Buy a pay as you go Oyster card. It works out much cheaper than buying travel cards and is more convenient. Plus you can reuse it. You can also buy and top-up online before you go to London so you can arrive with a card all ready to go, you just to remember to touch in and out at the ticket barriers .

leaisure ask fo a 'black cab' otherwise you get a back hander!!!!

Things to do... Everything was so close to the hotel. Walked through Keningston Gardens and Hyde Park every morning (beautiful for picture taking). Also visited the Royal Albert Museum and Memorial, the Princess Diana Memorial, the Albert and Victoria Museum and the Natural Science Museum, along with many, many shops and stores. The prices are very expensive, but that's everywhere in London. So many little pubs and restaurants to eat at, too.
