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Here are my general thoughts: Negatives: Room was small and outdated Double bed is morelike a full size bed Shower stall was small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.

I tried to sleep but my legs muscles and feet were too sore. I had a bath and self-massaged my legs and felt better. We went up the road to the local pub, for a really nice dinner.
In contrast to the central city, the suburbs are exactly as we imagined ...
