    Comfortable and clean. Staff are friendly and the location is ideal since it is just a few minutes away by tube or bus from Oxford Street.

    Unique Quality: Easy access to shopping and transportation.

    Simple, Affordable, Clean

    by

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hyde Park Towers Hotel. At $75 a night (rates went up after March 31), it was a bargain, conveniently located near the Bayswater tube station and Kensington Gardens. We found this room via the Internet, which caused us a little worry, but our fears were unfounded. We found it interesting to get to our room - like a little maze.
    Breakfast was included - cereal, fruit, etc. Also, the room had a hot pot with tea/sugar.
    Bathroom was surprisingly modernized - very nice.
    Balcony doors opened onto a quiet street, with decent dining choices nearby. Just a note - this hotel is only 4 stories - no "towers" to speak of...

    Directions: one block from Bayswater Tube

    Friendly staff

    While my first trip to London I’ve been staying in “Hyde Park Towers” Hotel. The hotel is located in a nice and quiet street (Inverness Terrace) which was full of other small hotels . The hotel is in a couple minutes walk from Hyde Park and the Bayswater & Queensway tube station, shopping malls, restaurants with different cuisines and the cinema are just around the corner. The staff is really very friendly, I still keep warm memories about the night porter who was very attentive to me when I’ve got into troubles with a robbery, the bar manager (I wonder if he remains working there) was really another Benny Hill, he was making jokes so spontaneously and naturally easy that we once were laughing into tears when he was simply telling a story how he had spent a night in the bar next door. So later it became quite a tradition to call into the bar in the night before coming back to the room, it was just nice to laugh for a while before going to sleep.

london 4 day break

by TripAdvisor Member ra3

just returned from 4 day break in london stayed at hyde park towers inverness cres. nice small hotel rooms cleaned every day breakfast good and cheap if u wanted to upgrade for extra. close to bus and tube.

Better than anticipated!

by TripAdvisor Member Rick99NewYorkCity

My wife and I stayed at the Hyde Park Towers from January 30 to February 3, 2005 as part of a vacation package deal. Just before flying out of New York, I read some of the negative postings that some individuals had written about the hotel and wondered what I had gotten my wife and I into. From the time we arrived from Heathrow till the day we left, we had nothing but a positive experience. When we arrived at the front desk, the receptionist took our luggage and held it safely until our room could be made up from all the people who were staying there for the weekend. This truly is an international hotel with people from all over the world converging here. Yes, the room (224) was small but that is to be expected when traveling overseas. As for the noise from the "tube", it was negligible on the second floor. Everyone at the hotel went out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Some postings about the hotel complained about the continental breakfast of cereal, rolls, croissants, etc. but failed to mention that you could upgrade to eggs, sausages, etc. for an additional few pounds. As for the location of the hotel, it was superb. There are two underground train stations (Baywater and Queensway) within easy walking distance to take an individual to any part of London within a relatively short period of time. In short, if I were to return to London in the near future, I would not hesitate for one moment to return to the Hyde Park Towers.

Location, location, location!!!

I upgraded to this hotel on an internet hotel/flight deal. I had read reviews previously and had some trepidation based on those. I understood that English hotels were often converted from row houses and the standards might not be what I was used to in the states.
With that in mind, The Hyde Park Towers was pretty basic lodging. The first night they were unable to put my son and me into the double room we had requested so put us into two singles on the same floor. His was an acceptable size but mine was minuscule. You had to sit sideways on the toilet or else straddle the pipe from the sink. The second night our room was much bigger overlooking the main street. The beds were on rollers so he moved his by the window. The continental breakfast was rolls, cereal, and juices but you could pay a few pounds more for a hot breakfast. The staff was helpful but the best thing was it's location to shopping, dining, parks, bus routes and two Tube entrances. As other reviewers said, who spends a lot of time in their room anyway???
If you don't have really high expectations, you likely won't be disappointed!!!

The worst Hotel I have stayed in

by A TripAdvisor Member

I stayed here recently and it was absolutley awful. We saw a mouse in our room and let the management know. It seemed that they did not believe us. We were in the basement and the room was tiny and not in the greatest condition.

We came in one night to find that the bar was closing just as we came in, however there were some regular guest as the women behind the bar was chatting to them about previous times there. She would continue to go behind the closed bar and serve them drinks, when we enquired about getting a drink she was moody and told us the bar was closed and that the pub round the coener was still open.

This is the worst hotels I have ever had the mis-fortune of staying in.

Good location, clean, good service, good breakfast

by TripAdvisor Member LindaGrimsby_UK

Over the years stayed in hotels in San Francisco, LA, Vegas, Washington,Chicago, Boston, New York, Singapore, Hong Kong, Sydney, Ayers Rock, Cairo, Dehli etc etc.
Bit dismayed about the previous reviews having seen them after booking a stay for last weekend 4-5/12/04
Been changes since previous reviews.
Can confirm small rooms but not overly so. Fairly typical of London 3* hotels. Quite adequate and to be fair there is nothing the management can do.
The rooms we stayed in 123 & 133 were very clean. Bedding fresh and furniture not tired. Underground noise yes but I heard underground noise at Broadway shows! All part of London.
Location was near Queensway on the Central Line and Bayswater on the Circle/District. Not intimidating area.
Breakfast was first class and the staff very helpful.
Had a good Italian 3 course meal in Queensway in the next street.
Been visiting London for weekends for many years and would stay here again.

UK Trip

" London "

We stayed the first four days in London. After 14 hours of flight from Singapore to London, we reached Heathrow at 8pm, but only managed to get to hotel (Hyde Park Towers Hotel, Bayswater) at 10pm... by then we are famished and tired...

The next day, we went around London, visited London Eye, Big Ben, Trafalgar Square and Oxford Street before we settled for diner at the Chinatown, Piccadilly Cicus.

On the third day, we got up early to Victoria station for our excursion to Stonehenge and Bath. The journey from London to Salisbury took three hours. First we stopped at Stonehenge for an hour or so before we went to Bath, which is another hour journey. At Bath, we visited the museum on the Roman Baths and wandered their streets...
We reached back in London in the evening

On Monday (Day 4), we attended my convocation at Central Mall and had dinner at Russell Square.

On Day 5, we checked out in the morning from Hyde Park Tower Hotel and set off to Buckingham Palace where we witnessed the Changing of Guards. After that, we checked in to Chelsea Village (next to Chelsea Stadium). After lunch, we went to Tower of London and Tower Bridge but both had closed for the day. :( we made our way to Hard Rock Cafe and had dinner at one of the English pub near there...

" Sightseeing Tours by Trafalgar Tours "

We took a 4 days tour from Trafalgar tours to have a Taste of Britain

We left Chelsea Village and followed this itinery :-

Day 1 London - Cotswolds -Stratford - Coventry - Darlington
We made our way through the Chiltern Hills to Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare. From here we continued to Coventry, where we saw both the old and new Cathedrals. Later an afternoon arrival in Viking York took us on a walking tour to view the imposing Minster and stroll along the 'Shambles'. Then on to Darlington where we met for a welcome drink with our Tour Director and fellow travelling companions before dinner at our hotel.

Day 2 Darlington - Jedburgh - Edinburgh
We headed further north where we stopped for photos at Hadrian's Roman Wall on our drive through Northumberland National Park to the Scottish border at Carter Bar. Here we admired breathtaking views before crossing the Borderlands and seeing the ruins of Jedburgh Abbey. Then on to Edinburgh where we had some free time before a sightseeing tour which include a visit to Edinburgh Castle and views of Holyrood House.

Day 3 Edinburgh - Lake District - Manchester
We drove through the SouthernUplands to the area known as the 'Devil's Beef Tub' past Moffat to Gretna Green, where traditionally eloping couples married against their parents' wishes. We crossed the border into England and drive along the lakes and valleys of the English Lake District to Grasmere. Then along the shores of Windermere, through pastures reminiscent of Wordsworth's poetry, we made our way to Manchester.

Day 4 Manchester - Chester -Northern Wales - Wedgwood -London
Our first stop from Manchester was at historic Chester. Here an orientation tour highlighted the Cathedral, Tudor buildings and the arcaded 'Rows'. Next we visited the northern wales for lunch before we continued on to the Wedgwood Pottery Centre - our last stop for this 4-day tour, where we were shown the art of porcelain manufacture.

We reached London at in the evening and stayed our last night at
Rubens at the Palace.

Transportation from Heathrow Airport to Hyde Park Towers Hotel

by thisit811

We'll arrive into LHR Terminal #3, and We'll stay at Hyde Park Towers Hotel 41-51Invenness Terrace, Hyde Park, London. W2. What is the best underground line to get there? Also do we have to change the tube? If does. Where is it?
Thanks in advance.

RE: Transportation from Heathrow Airport to Hyde Park Towers Hotel

by Mariajoy

Hi, the hotel's nearest tube seems to be Bayswater Underground Station which is on the District and Circle tube lines.

Heathrow is on the Piccadilly line so you will have to change at Earls Court for the District line to Bayswater.

RE: RE: Transportation from Heathrow Airport to Hyde Park Towers Hotel

by leics

The Tube is remarkably easy to use; there are maps and good signs at stations and intersecting platforms. You can access or download a map on http://www.tfl.gov.uk/tube/maps/ (PDF), so you can work out where you need to change for your hotel/anywhere else.

RE: Transportation from Heathrow Airport to Hyde Park Towers Hotel

by leics

The hotel is 'less than a minute' from either Bayswater as Maria said, or Queensway on the Central Line.

RE: RE: Transportation from Heathrow Airport to Hyde Park Towers Hotel

Great! Thanks Maria & Liecs. Can't wait to be in London once again.

RE: RE: Transportation from Heathrow Airport to Hyde Park Towers Hotel

by Cham

it's a great location to be in...

but i would probably take the heathrow express to paddington and then from there take the circle/district line one stop to bayswater... or it's just a very short taxi ride from paddington

RE: RE: Transportation from Heathrow Airport to Hyde Park Towers Hotel

by TheLongTone

It's never worth getting the tube for just one stop. By the time you,ve fought your way onto the platform, got a train, got out the other end you might as well have walked....if you go via paddington get a taxi to the hotel. I''tll only be three squid or so.
