After what seemed like forever we finally made it to our destination, London England! It seems so surreal to actually be here. As we were landing I couldn't help but think about my dad. Everything looked so tiny like a little train layout. I wish he could be with us to enjoy this special time, I know he would love it. After we land and get our …
We flew to London on Thursday afternoon and after a nice 3 hour flight with easyJet, we arrived in London around 7:30pm after catching the Gatwick Express into the city. We had looked up a pub nearby for dinner, and were quite hungry by this time! Bradley ordered the venison and ale pie and a red wine and I ordered the beer battered fish and chips with a lovely cider and it was all delicious! Very satisfying. We finished it all quite quickly so that we could walk past some of the ...
... very cool, we still had time to kill, and it was nearby, so we decided to drive out to see what it was all about. About 45 minutes later we arrived at our destination. Out in the distance we could see a tower in the middle of a field engulfed in fog. We bundled up, put on our rain-gear, and went into the visitor's center to purchase tickets to the tower. The wind had picked up a bit and the rain began to fall heavier, bending the small umbrella ...
... Some drunk English guys ended up sitting next to us, and they were so incredibly racist, it was so bad! And they got in trouble by some random drunk rich girl who wanted some attention, for the one thing they said that wasn't offensive! Oh London! We left at the next opportunity, and made our way home down a different route, to mix it up a bit, and passed some pretty Christmassy streets and went back to the hostel where we went straight up to ...
... then back to the Tube for the last time and home!! I forgot to tell you that yesterday - we were in the Tube and Darren didn't want to wait for the elevator, so we walked up the stairs to the top....now I know why NO ONE does this - Harry counted - there were 250 steps....none of us could breathe by the time we got to the top...and we were just starting our day....
So farewell from London. We have had a great but jam-packed time. Next time we will be in PAr

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyde Park Radnor Hotel London
Excellent location good size family room
our family enjoyed a pleasant stay at this hotel. the location was excellent, near to the underground, near to a few restaurants for the evenings, even the sight seeing bus stopped just 5 mins away, even a hospital ( which we needed to visit! ) is all nearby. also the area was safe. The family room was a nice size, but the bathroom was very tiny. and lots of squeaky floorboards!... it was nice to have a kettle for tea but it would have been nice to have a fridge in the room to.
Nice and friendly staff, who were always helpful. would definately return.. also parking facilites at the hotel were handy.
Where we always stay
Chose this hotel based on location only years ago and have been coming back yearly to stay. Courteous, helpful and friendly staff. Full English breakfast is the best. Centrally located. Why stay anywhere else?
The hotel is friendly, with good rooms and bathrooms.
The lokation is good - but room facing the street have a bit trafic noise - otherwise the location is very good with lots of reustaurants, shops and pubs. You are in walking distance of Oxford Street
IŽll stay there again - but IŽll miss having a refrigiator at summertime ( I stayed here at dec.)
Rudest in London
These were the rudest, least helpful people in London. Will make sure no one in our company, our hospitals and our circle of friends are duped into using this facility.
Comfortable rooms and lovely bathrooms. The staff were friendly and breakfast was served promptly. Avoid rooms at the front if you can as the noise from traffic can be unpleasent.
My husband and I just returned from a trip to the UK and Ireland. We stayed at Hyde Park Radnor at the beginning and end of our trip. It is a nice, clean hotel with good-sized rooms and clean, updated bathroom facilities. The breakfast is good and the location is great, with lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance. As well, it is a couple of blocks from Paddington Station where you catch the train to Heathrow and the west country-side/Wales as well as the Underground and also is a short walking distance from Hyde Park.
My husband and I had a very pleasant stay at this hotel at the end of June 2004. The room was cozy and airy. We especially liked the modern bathrooms with the towel warmer. The water pressure out of the shower was nice. The breakfasts were okay, nothing to rave about. The staff were friendly and accomodating to our needs.
The hotel is close to Paddington train station-a real plus for day excursions out of London.
We would stay there again.
A pleasent, clean and cosy hotel
The Hyde Park Radnor is a very nice and cosy hotel in a great location (3 minutes from Paddington underground station, 7 minutes from hyde park). Clean and warm rooms with a new looks, very good bath rooms en-suite, nice breakfast and a very pleasent staff.
Prices - 75 pound for a double, 60 for a single, 105 for a tripple. Fine price for what you get.
Some good, some bad
We stayed at the Hyde Park Radnor a handful of times within a 3-week period. I have very mixed feelings about this hotel. We liked the decor, it has very tall ceilings and charming rooms, though they could use a little touch up with the paint, as there is some visible wear-and-tear. The beds are pretty comfortable. The bathrooms were WONDERFUL, newly refurbished and very bright. The shower had a wonderful strong water pressure and there is even a towel warmer! The front desk staff was a mix---some very friendly, some not at all, one woman was rather rude. The breakfast staff, however, were very wonderful and always treated guests very well.
I would probably post a fairly positive review of this hotel if it weren't for what happened during our last visit. We arrived at the hotel and were given a room key. However, when we entered the room it was already occupied! We quickly went back down to reception where we were then told that they were over-booked and that we could get a room at their sister hotel down the street. We checked out of the sister hotel (The Springfield) and even though it was not nearly as nice, we accepted out of desparation. The young man at the Radnor was very apologetic and brought our luggage over to the Springfield himself. Unfortunately, as the night went on we discovered many things about the new hotel--no mattress pad under the sheet, scratchy sheets, stained pillow cases, half the lights didn't work, hairdryer didn't work, etc. The next day we were moved back to the Hyde Park Radnor. When we went to check out the next day, I realized they had not even given me the slightest discount for all the trouble! The Manager was not available when we checked out so there was no one to talk to. So we ended up leaving with a bad taste in our mouths. So overall I would say: Comfortable and a little charming, nice bathrooms, but bad customer service. Would I stay there again? Maybe. But let's just say I'm checking out a few other hotels before I return in September.
Good Family Hotel
We stayed for a week in April and had a wonderful stay. We had the family room for the four of us - 2 adults and 2 children - 10 and 13 years old. The location was great. Only a couple of minutes walk to Paddington train and underground. Neighborhood was safe and enough restaurants and stores. Definitely would stay there again.
