Danubius Hotel Regents Park
Travel Blogs from London
My mom and I took a bus to Camden Market first thing in the morning. We had fun taking pictures of the awesome walls and different types of stores. We went on the Regent Canal Tour with London Waterbus Canal Boat, and it was great. A river boat was going up the locks as we watched...very cool! By the time the canal tour was over, Camden Market was …
We flew into Heathrow Airport from Calgary, Canada. Excellent flight with Air Canada! Hummingbird Taxi service was there as we left Arrivals and they drove us to our hotel. As we arrived,we were told we had to wait a couple of hours for our room to be ready. We decided to take a walk around the hotel to see what restaurants were available. It is a …
... knocks your socks off. Finally, we looped past Traafalgar Square - a vibrant open square. Its usually packed with people & I'm noticing that people here have a big issue with texting & walking. They seem to always be in a huge rush & looking down at their phones. I keep having to dodge them & it gets very annoying.
Lunch today was at one of my favorites, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay. This is his original restaurant & is extremely hard to get ...
... to keep the shoes looking their best. But how on earth shall i find the necessary sacrificial goat before the vernal equinox? Around the corner, sitting at a dirty picnic table with my extra-fancy black package bearing the name JUSTIN DEAKIN in gold letters, i munch on a considerably more blue collar lunch of a pulled pork sandwich, slathered in a spicy sauce that the clerk is all-too happy to repeat the brand name of - in his russian-accented english - to each ...
... Laura, Jess, Gen, Carly, Kat, Sarah, Kym, and I had lunch at an Italian restaurant overlooking the town square. Before leaving, Laura and I ducked off to pick up some chocolate from a Belgium chocolatier - it was amazing.
Soon enough it was time to get back on the bus to make our way to Calais to catch a boat to the Port of Dover in England. It was in Calais that we had to say goodbye to our faithful bus and driver. The two hour boat ...

The staff were very helpful. We had a corner room on the 4th floor and it was very quiet. The restaurant on sight was not very good unfortunately, but everything else was great! We would definitely stay again!

Historical Traveler Reviews Danubius Hotel Regents Park London
Please try to avoid.
We stayed here for the simple reason of it being very close to the Lords Cricket Ground. Although we do not have many complains about our room, (except for the bathroom door which wouldn't close properly) we were extremely disgusted with the reception personnel. They were very rude and hardly had a smile for the guests! There was one exception though. A tall blonde gentleman who was standing at the door had such a warm smile for each and every guest. We wouldn't recommed this hotel to anyone unless like us, they wanted to stay very near the Lords Cricket Ground.
Not worth paying GBP 99 per night
We stayed at this hotel for two nights in June, 2005. We got a room on the 6th floor, which was clean and nice. Everthing else about the hotel is just average. The location is not very convenient for someone who wants to use subway (about 30 mins of walking from Baker street station). With the same amount of money or a little bit more, you probably can get a nice room in a better location.
Better than many in this price range ...
I stay very frequently in 3- or 4-star hotels in London, and this compares favourably. Stayed in a standard double room on the 11th (top) floor and wasn't troubled by noise at all. The hotel is built over a railway line, so light sleepers should probably avoid rooms on lower floors, or facing onto the roundabout behind the hotel. Room was larger than many of a similar standard, well-furnished and spotlessly clean. Food and drinks in the hotel are expensive, but there's plenty of choice on nearby St. John's Wood High Street. St John's Wood Tube (Zone 2) about 10 mins walk; Baker Street and Marylebone (Zone 1) about 15 mins. If you can obtain a discount rate - and a quieter room - then I'd definitely recommend this hotel.
I booked this hotel with an internet agent because of the good rate, good car parking rate(£12.50 for 24 hrs) and japanese restuarant. When I got there the, they no longer had a Japanese restuarant and on departure they smugly charged me £22.50 for parking even though I showed them a copy of the advertisement and argued my case. (This was later refunded by the booking agent and the advertisement changed)
Excellent hotel, friendly staff,great room and very good food. I will be going back to this hotel again.
This is not the hotel if you want to avoid troubles that are likely to happen.
At the time of checkin, a receptionist said there was no reservation for me. Acutually I showed my voucher but she could not recognise it. On the other day I asked for a super market where to shop, and one staff told me it takes 20 minutes to get there, but another staff told me it is within 5 mins walking distance. Such kinds of thing happened almost everyday during my stay. It might be OK if you can put up with these miscommunication, because it costs more or less just $100 per night. But you will definitely find much better place in Zone 1 if you pay $20-40 more. Not the best value hotel anyway.
Most staff cannot speak much of the English language, and have absolutely NO CLUE as to when the Post Office is open, how to get to tourist attractions, etc.. You'll need to use a good guide book, unless you want to be teaching these people about England. ( they should be paying YOU !)
The location is not good for the tourist who likes to use public transportation, about 2 miles from Baker Street Station, and about a mile and a half from St. Johns Wood Station. The buses come to connect you quite frequently, but all in all, add about an hour to any journey, especially via the Baker St. Station.
I stayed at the Regent's Park Hotel, St John's Wood London, on business in April 04. I found the staff unhelpful as I had to suggest they helped me with my cases. Their was no sewing kit in the room to mend my shirt, and sewing kits are in hotel rooms as standard. The paper I ordered was several days out of date and had to be sent back until the right paper came. The room was basic and the hotel did not deserve it's four stars, as it felt like a two star hotel. I would not recommend this hotel to any of my business peers, there are far better hotels in London in which one can stay, and this hotel was basic and awful.
We enjoy regular trips to London, shopping, site seeing etc and our usual Hotel, London Elizabeth, was closed for much-needed refurbishment, just before Xmas-03. We don't expect much from London-based Hotels and contacted Ramada Plaza because of it's location adjacent to Regents Park, thereby giving easy access to Oxford St, etc.
