More about Hyde Park Premier London Paddington

Watch out - Not all of the Rooms are good!

by Yvonne79 about Hyde Park Premier London Paddington

I found this place on the internet and was surprised to find such a good deal: £59 a night for a double room in a four star hotel in central London seems quite a bargain. When we arrived, we weren't all that happy anymore. The room didn't really look like in a 4*, but rather like a 2* hotel. The furnishings were very old, the walls too thin and the bathroom was just tiny. We did however not complain, because we thougt that the price is ok for a hotel just around the corner from Hyde Park, although we found the room quite shabby.
We were very surprised when our friends arrived at the hotel the last night we were staying there: they had booked later than we had and payed a few pounds less. The room they were given was however worthy of a 4* hotel and looked like the one on the picture. It looked very new, was nicely decorated, had a much larger modern bathroom. There was even a micro-wave and a flat-screen TV in their room!
I might go back to the hotel again, but next time I would complain in case I was given a room like last time again. If you book the hotel, try to change the room, in case it is one of the shabby ones in the basement - the people on the higher floors didn't pay more than you did!
Wheter you have an old or a new room, they are all very small! No space to leave any huge suitcases open...
The picture is from the official homepage of the hotel. I forgot to take one of our room, sorry! I liked the location of the hotel. It's not too far from the "Lancaster Gate" Underground station, which is right next to Hyde Park. It's only 1 stop to the stores on Oxford Street.

The staff of the hotel was very friendly.

Heathrow underground to T3?

by trekfuel

i have booked a rail ticket from Crewe that says for heathrow underground - I DO NOT KNOW LONDON VERY WELL AT ALL SO is this the right place for terminal 3 heathrow airport? If not what is the best way to get there? Any advice much appreciated.

Re: Heathrow underground to T3?

by leics

I do not understand how you have booked a railway ticket which includes anything about the underground (the Tube). They are two entirely separate things.

Your train will arrive at London Euston station. From there you can take the underground (Tube) all the way to the airport if you wish. The journey will take 45 mins -1 hour. If you go from Euston you will have to change lines. This si the cheapest way to get to Heathrow.

Tube map here (not a download):

http://www.bbc.co.uk/london/travel/downloads/tube_map.html

Heathrow is a huge airport. Terminals 1 and 3 have a joint station on the Picadilly Tube line.

Go to:

http://www.heathrowairport.com/portal/site/heathrow/menuitem.e87da634aa88e3fba4b12871120103a0/

Click on 'Underground' on the left-hand menu and you will be able to read about how to get to Heathrow on the Tube.

Alternatively, you can take the Tube (or taxi) from Euston to Paddington and then take the overground railway to Heathrow. The Heathrow Express and the Heathrow Connect (slightly slower and cheaper) run this route. Times, details and fares here:

Or you can take the Tube (or taxi) to Victoria coach station and take the bus to Heathrow. Times, details, fares and booking here;

This is entirely my point but my ticket is clearly printed with the destination as Heathrow Underground? Very confusing but thanks for your replies.

Re: Heathrow underground to T3?

by leics

There is no such thing as 'Heathrow Underground', so the nationalrail site is misleading.

There are underground stations at Heathrow, and it is the Piccadilly line which runs out to them.

I can see on the nationalrail site that 'Heathrow Underground' is listed if you choose e.g. 'terminal 3', and details are given about which Tube lines you should take from Euston. I think your ticket must include the Tube fare because it is more expensive than the ordinary fare to London Euston.

Anyway, you will definitely arrive at London Euston mainline station and then need to take the Tube from there, with a change of line (if you want to take the Tube all the way to Heathrow).

Re: Heathrow underground to T3?

by johngayton

If your ticket is a through ticket to Heathrow Underground you need to get the tube from Euston to Kings Cross (Circle or Hammersmaith and City lines eastwards) and then change there for the Picadilly line to Heathrow - I think it's Heathrow Central where you get off. From there you can either walk to Terminal 3 or use the Heathrow Express as a shuttle which is free within the airport. Expect the tube to take at least an hour including connection at Kings Cross.

Re: Heathrow underground to T3?

by TheLongTone

It's better to get the Victoria line & change to the Picadilly line at Green Park. The stop you want is the one fro terminals 1, 2 & 3. You exit right into the unlovely bowels of LHR. No further transportation needed.

Travel Tips for London

Take your time to take a...

by Rozita

Take your time to take a stroll down Carnaby street. With all its small shops filled with accessorieses etc it's definitely worth the time. If you're lucky, you can also find some cheap brand-clothes, such as Eastpak, Miss Sixty, Dc Martens etc. To sit on the tube, and look at all the different people getting on and off the train. Or if you don't like the tube, I recommend you to sit down on a bench for half an hour, observing people passing by. It's really interesting, because there are all kinds of people represented in this city.

London Tip

by Andrew_Vodo

There are lotf og very interesting museums in London: The British museum, Tate, Tate Modern, The museum of London, MOMI, etc. On this picture You can see the National gallery, that is situated rigth in the Trafalgar square

Staying out of city !!!!!!!!!!!!

by Imbi

If you are staying for a week or more in London, then consider staying outside the city area. You can find a decent place to live, like private bed and breakfast cheaper then renting a room in city. Places are comparatively cheap outside London and nice as well. the only thing you need to worry about is travelling expenses, which could be around £ 4.40 a day.

Ice-skating outside the Natural History Museum

by Durfun

Perfect way of rounding off your tour of this Museum. Amongst the exhibits you will find serpents, reptiles, fishes, prehistoric creatures, lions, etc.

It's quite educational too, eg the illustrated evolution of species and their close relatives, eg donkeys, horses, zebras, tapirs, okapi, etc.

*** Right outside you can skate & enjoy the cool crisp, fresh air while being surrounded by such historic buildings. The Science Museum is right behind. The Victoria & Albert Museum is right next door (other side of the road) and Hyde Park is just a short walk further north, along Exhibition Road.

Pay at the counter, where you'll get a timed ticket, next show it in the hall, get your hand stamped, request the right size of skates, and then you wait till the previous lot have cleared off, and the stewards have checked the surface.

Then the new lot skate on for the next hour :)

Location: Off Cromwell Road (A4). Nearest tube: South Kensington
