    Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Royale London Hyde Park

    Cute hotel, though you get what you pay for.


    First, the good news...the staff was polite, the continental breakfast was fresh, and the hotel was close to the Queensway Station.

    Now the other news, OK the hotel was a little rough around the edges. Somewhat older, a little cramped, definately in need of a facelift. Though it was not nearly as bad a the other reviewers claim. Besides, you are on vacation...go out and experience London, what are you doing in your hotel room anyway??

    This hotel was just great for us


    i really dont understand why all the previous reviewers didnt like this hotel. it's right, the rooms are small, but everything was very clean. i think that what really matters is the way the staff treat you, and i can promise you that the staff there is try to do everything to make your staying pleasent.

    they are very kind, polite and keep smilimg at you always.

    i think that if u are not spoiled, especially when u dont have a lot of money to spend on a bed, u can enjoy the hotel.

    it's location is so comfortable - next to him there is an underground-station straight to "Oxford street", and near the station it's a shopping street with food, clothes, souvenir, and even bowling-game.

    Me and my 3 friends enjoyed alot at the hotel. i wanna thank a lot to the graet staff - keep smiling !!!

    What do you expect , for what you pay ?


    took a party to this hotel and occupied 9 rooms, had read the reviews before we left and was in a state of fear. However, on arrival found the Inverness Court to a reasonable hotel in a good location and for what we paid , was pleased.The rooms were small & basic , clean & comfortable, our bathrooms however were very small and the space between the wc and the wash hand basic was non existant , but it was clean and plenty hot water. Breakfast was very basic. The entrance and reception and sitting areas were very impressive and old worldly. My impression overall was a hotel that was in the budget price range, clean and comfortable and worth the small amount we paid, if you want 4 or 5 star, pay the going rate

    Shame I remember it when...


    I remember the hotel when it was a top class hotel. I went to a prty in the bedroom where the King was 'entertained' it has two four poster beds and a suken victorian bathroom. Looks like the hotel is now heading for its final years. I would stay away!

    Avoid this hotel


    Stayed there in a double room with my wife. It's OK for a hotel o be a little worn out, but the amount of dust was unacceptable, the madrasses were filthy, windows never cleaned and there were no kind of electicity plug-ins available for e.g hair dryer or acellular phone charger. Its terrible waste to let the water run in the showers for 15 minutes before the water was warm enough to take a shower. Avoid this place.

    Never again!


    Shabby rooms, unfriendly staff - even if it is not that expensive, it costs me too much! Never ever book there, if you would like to have some nice days in London.



    Beware, this place is nothing like it appears on the outside. The inside is old, dirty and in my opinion, should be condemned! The elevators are almost inoperable, the carpets are worn and dirty, the floors sags, the hallways are so narrow, you have trouble moving with your luggage, the bathrooms are have mold and were not cleaned well.

    The beds were worn out and sagged in the middle. The rooms are so small that two people can not move about and forget about opening your luggage. The TV was an old 13". We were so outraged with these accommodations, that we found new accommodations; we could not stay there. This place is not fit for humans!!!



    Spent two nights at the Inverness but it felt like two weeks. From the outside it looks very impresive but don't be fooled by the picture. The hallways are narrow the rooms are closet size the carpets are dirty.

    There isn't room to open your suitcase on the floor so you have to use the bed. The elevators are in desperate need of repair the hallways are dirty and don't look in the stairwells because they are cluttered with old mattress, computers and heaven knows what else. I will say that the staff were very understanding and attempted to be compassionate to our shock but I imagine they've had a lot of practice. One plus is that it is close to transportation, shopping and Kensington Palace........can you believe!!!

    Cheap place means cheap price


    This is what you should expect if you find a great deal in a place which is known for being expensive. I got a double room in this London-hotel for $99. I thought this would be a decent hotel since a European airline advertised it on its website. The room appears clean but is no bigger than a closet. There was quite a bit of mold growing out of the ventilators which probably makes the hotel unsanitary.

    However, the biggest goof by the hotel was the fact that they gave me somebody's else's room-- while it was still occupied! They straightened this out quickly, however, I would reccommend that one stay's elsewhere if at all possible.

    NOTE: Location is good, price is expensive considering the room conditions, the rooms seem clean, but still moldy. Breakfast is a piece of toast, and water-downed OJ.



    While the hotel looks "grand" on the exterior, it is anything but that once you get inside. The elevators were working but they are dirty and the interior in both of them is in need of repair. Navigating your suitcases through the narrow dirty hallways that had multiple levels of steps proved to be a challenge. We had a twin room and the first one we went to was so TINY it couldn't fit a night table between the two beds.

    The window wouldn't open and it was HOT! We changed to another room, and while this window did open, the walls and carpeting were just as filthy. We stayed for two nights in June 2003 and slept with the lights and TV on all night.

    The one positive thing - the towels were great!

    was disappointed until my friend Thereze pointed out the metaphor….

    London is a temporary, practical solution, like the dark
    brown pair of boots I bought today. Italy, represented by the former pair, has
    so many positive aspects: good color, wonderful style, quality. But the actual
    situation there was not the perfect or long-term fit. So I can let go of that
    pair ...

    Not knowing exactly where the conference center was, Tiff downloaded the directions from her citymapper app and took screen shots of the whole route so she would know where to go. She stepped out into the brisk morning air. The rain had not started, but the forecast said it was coming. Hopefully it was wrong.

    ... so I was able to witness them in action. It was unbelievable how well trained their horse were. Every movement was done with extreme precision and not one guard looked out of place. Well done. I followed some of guards through an arch way in the barracks and ended up on a road in line with Trafalgar Square.

    Now I never actually made it into the square because a McDonald's was calling my name but I got close enough to take a half decent picture of ...

    ... time we were done it had gone 8pm and Dan and Steph had to catch their train back up north and we were pretty tired so headed back to the flat.
    Most nights we have been going to bed by 11 as I am awake around 7am and Zach earlier. My desk job has also not helped me prepare to be on my feet for so long although the new boots are working out great so far with very few sore spots on my feet :-)
