Historical Traveler Reviews Blakemore Hyde Park London
Not the best choice...just ok
My husband and I stayed in this hotel in March 2003. I wouldn't recommend staying here due to the run down appearance of the rooms. I was disappointed in the hotel because our room had some peeling wallpaper, had no iron-I had to go to another room which just had been vacated to iron. That room was more updated.
Here are my general thoughts: Negatives: Room was small and outdated Double bed is morelike a full size bed Shower stall was small
Positives: Friendly staff Maid service generally did very well Free continental breakfast-basic Good short walking distance from the Bayswater Tube station and main street which had many shops
I would rate this place a 2* hotel...it's ok but there are probably better choices :)
Good Hotel for Students
Recently spent two nights at the Blakemore booking a exec. double for two. Upon walking into the room, it was apparent that a double bed at the Blakemore is only a USA full size bed. It was fine for one person or two small kids, but for adults over 45, it doesn't work. I would suggest requesting a double with 2 twin size beds. The shower was approx. 28" x 28" in size, so it is good to be thin if you stay there.
You do hear the tube arrive and depart the Bayswater station, but it is not really too bad, depends if the windows are open. You must request a deluxe exec. room if you want air conditioning. The floors are squeeky so some ear plugs might be a good idea. You find a lot of college age students staying there as well, so quite a bit foot traffic. The upper floor rooms are smaller and I imagine have thinner walls.
We ended up having my wife stay with our daughter in her flat and I stayed alone in the double room. That worked out OK and the hotel did give me a break on my second night room charge. The best part was it was less expensive than most, but then again, you get what you pay for!
Stayed a couple of days, about 300 meters from Hyde Park, close to a Cyber Cafe so that was good keeping in touch, and a small grocery store beside it.....room was tiny but good enough for 1 person, and London is really expensive... got complementary breakfast which was okie.... nice place would stay there again...
Melissa Masino Review
When it comes to visiting London, you probably want to save where you can. Hotels can be pricey, so that's why I chose the Blakemore Hotel. Perfect area...right across from Hyde Park, walking to distance to Prince Albert Memorial and Hall, Harrods, shopping, and of course...the tube. You're on the red line, so easy access to the shopping of Oxford Street and the theaters by Tottenham Court Road. Also a quick tube ride to picadilly, leister square and covent garden. The drawbacks are the thin walls and small rooms, but who cares. How much time are you really in your room? They are clean, there's a bar in the hotel, continental breakfast (nice), and it's a safe area. Definite thumbs up. Not a four star hotel, but great for a budget. NICE FRIENDLY STAFF TOO!

France; home to cute dogs but not so nice and attractive people and now back in England....what shall we find here? So we have left Barcelona. I cannot say how nice and friendly the people were. Especially to the children. Mila loved it as she was star of the show (did I mention they kept giving a her toys?) in fact at times she would have happily …
... and visited with some folks there while Dad picked up tip money for the upcoming shoot in Scotland. Upon our return to the hotel, Dad managed to get a few more hours of sleep while I worked a bit on the iPad and then wandered out a bit searching for a couple of pubs, successfully I might add . I woke him up in time to head out for dinner at a place ...
... HCP have done a great job of providing information where each area is set out as though actually used, with fake but realistic copies of food to enhance the visitors perceptions of real life at the castle. The Great Hall is absolutely amazing and the stained glass stunningly beautiful, as are the huge tapestries hanging from the wall. We really appreciated that although the tapestries are delicate and cleaning and maintaining them are ...
... Rome. We go inside, and the plaza is shining with light from the glass ceiling panels. There are so many rooms and people are everywhere. Glass cases are completely obscured by people. The bright light of flash bulbs go off like Christmas lights. We walk through the Greek and Roman section and enclosed in a glass case and shrouded with people is a cool black stone slab: the Rosetta Stone. We have to push through the people, elbowing our way to the front to get ...
... of London at Woolwich but we weren't sure about parking and flagged the idea. Just before the boat pulled away from the pier it started to spit with rain and we did not bring any jackets with us as we were determined it would not rain. Within two minutes the few drops stopped and that was all we saw of any precipitation. What a great cruise, the commentary was incredibly funny and while at times the jokes were a little "Daddy", for the most part the guy was ...
