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Here are my general thoughts: Negatives: Room was small and outdated Double bed is morelike a full size bed Shower stall was small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 …
... houses, and also lots of cool cheap boutique shops. We walked all the way down (stopping partway for a coffee, at a cafe opposite the bookshop currently at the site of the bookshop that inspired the bookshop in the movie "Notting Hill." There was a Blue Plaque on the wall to that effect.) We did buy something: 2 souvenir canvas shopping bags for 5 pounds, that we will get made into cushion covers by the cunning addition of a zip.
And then it was home ...
... hop off bus, and stayed there for a while until we got to the Tower of London. The guide on the bus gave a lot of interesting information while we were getting there. The tower was one place I was interested in going - specially after doing the Tudor exhibition in Paris. It was good, and it was pretty amazing being able to see the Crown Jewels. There weren't that many people there, so I had a very good view of everything.
... to far away. Got to see Kim and we also got to meet some new friends who were living in London and originally from California. We met a guy who looked like a younger version of my uncle Dani - it was the funniest thing. Also, Sterling got to have fish & chips like a proper Englishman =P
Our last half day in London was spent by the London Eye Pier. We went to this vintage and antique car sale/show. Rob loved it. There were some yummy food trucks there ...
... 8217;t want to explore the royalty and culture of Romans which are also displayed in the museum gallery of the palace. there is also an audio visual presentation for the tourists to explain them various aspects and to make them aware of the historical importance of the place.
