Great location convenient to Paddington Station and Hyde Park, Oxford Street. Hotel was clean and quiet. Breakfast was good with plenty of variety.

Historical Traveler Reviews Days Inn London Hyde Park
Loud in the city
The hotel is clean and in a great location due to Paddington Station being just a short walk. However, since our room was located on the front of the buiding it was extremely loud all night. Because the windows need to be open to maintain a comfortable temperature, the street noise is a problem. Overall, I might stay here again if I could get a room that did not face the street.
Marshmallow mattresses, window wind-ups
We stayed in two single rooms for three nights at £80 per room per night. Although recently refurbished there doesn't seem to be ongoing maintenance. The mattresses were ridiculously soft. In a room so small that there's no where else to sit but on the bed it's mportant that you don't roll off the edge of it because of missing or poking-through springs! In one room (120) the window was jammed shut and the bathroom extractor fan was broken (25C that weekend!). In room 305 the bed was just about bearable but still ridiculously soft. Desk clerk managed a move for one on our third night. All staff friendly and well meaning but the clerk we complained to admitted there were plenty of moans about those mattresses! We feel sorry for the people who follow us as there doesn't seem a commitment to fixing this problem - just move the complainers around. I hope I'm wrong. Didn't try the breakfast (extra £6.50) - Use a local cafe for better value or grab and go at Paddington. Bring earplugs as most rooms are street facing and Sussex Gardens has noisy vehicle, pedestrian and even horse traffic 24/7
Booked this hotel to attend Hyde Park Calling weekend festival
The hotel was newly refurbished, nicely decorated with comfortable beds
on what was probably the hottest day of the year (30+ degrees) we were given an unbearably hot and tiny ground floor room - to find we were located above the boiler room! The hotel was full, but helpful reception staff moved us to another room the following night - however, this was front of house and it was a choice of having the windows closed in 30 degrees or be kept awake all night by traffic noise on busy main road.
Location - 2 min walk from restaurants, tube, Hyde Park etc
Good breakfast (extra)
All newly refurbished and very clean
Helpful friendly staff
Noisy and hot at that time of year
Advertised bar facility not open
Advertised parking is limited and 'first come first served' with extra charge
Excellent value, will stay again
After checking out the reviews in Trip advisor we booked two rooms at Days Hotel Hyde Park during the half term break, & got them at the rate of £75 per room per night, which is amazing for school holiday prices. Both rooms were newly refurbished, with very comfortable beds & superb shower rooms. They were much nicer & more spacious rooms than in the hotel we had stayed earlier in the week, which had charged twice the price! There was also breakfast included, which was a choice of full english or continental ( guess which we chose!!) Staff were friendly & helpful. We will definately use this hotel again.
Good hotel near Hyde Park
This was a pretty decent hotel on Sussex Gardens near Hyde Park. As it's made up of a number of small, slender buildings that have been linked together, the hotel has a rather unique design - with rooms located on landings between floors, and some rooms that you even have to go outside to get into again. The only issue here, is that some rooms are not accessible via the lift, and require a few stairs - which wasn't a problem for us, but might be for some. Our room was one of a few on a landing between floors on a stair case.
- hotel was clean, and newly renovated since the Days Inn people took it over
- hotel was in a good safe neighbourhood on a quiet, tree-lined street, with lots of restaurants nearby Edgware Road and Oxford Street
- great LCD screen TVs in all the rooms
- good buffet breakfast to start the day
- very friendly staff, that let us into our room at noon (earlier than most would)
- coffee/tea in room
- good, new shower (no bath)
-hotel is a bit of a walk to the nearest Metro station... Paddington station - perhaps 15 minutes or so...
- our room (between first and second floor), was fairly small (even by London standards), that it was hard to move around in without climbing over the beds
- many rooms not handicap accessible
This is a good choice if you get a decent rate. Clean hotel, Good location and friendly staff... but, bring your walking shoes to get to the underground and shopping.
We stayed here as it was literally one of the last hotels we could book for 1 night that wasn't ridiculously priced. Very cheap, around 75 pounds for a newly decorated room with flat screen tv and all you could need for 1 night. Don't stay here if you want luxury as it is very basic but it is really nice. Nice vibe and in an old london style town house type building. Staff nice and friendly. If you turn right out of the hotel you can see paddington tube and national rail literally 2 minutes walk and loads of resturants and shops nearby. You can walk to Hyde Park in around 5 minutes past some very nice mews style houses, lovely area of London. Enjoy we did!
Had an enjoyable stay.
I just arrived in London on vacation from Greece and spent a weeks stay at the Days Hotel Hyde Park. The rooms were reasonably priced and of top quality. The hotel looks to have been newly refurbished and the decor is very elegant. The receptionists were very helpful in advising me where all the attractions are in the area.
Always staying at Days Hotel Hyde Park
A superb hotel with great prices and helpful staff. Nice surroundings, Hyde Park. and very easy to get around London from the hotel, you can walk or take the Metro which is very close to the hotel. I go to London often and from now on I'm going to stay at Days Hotel Hyde very time. Thank you for making my stay in London pleasent.
Great low prices and spacious rooms!
A few bits that are still being changed around since they are a new hotel but the end product will be great! i have already booked my next visit for july.
I can highly recommend this place.
Fantastic location and value!
This is a very charming 3 star hotel very close to Hyde Park. Great location for anything in London and fantastic service! Every little small request was never too much for reception. The hotel looks very new and the rooms were spacious for being in London. It was hard to find since many hotels on the same street but really worth looking for. We also paid a very low price and got told they doing lots of promotions since they are a new property. I will return.

Although we awoke to a slightly cool, sunny day the forecast called for a high of 79 degrees, so we would have yet another beautiful day in the U.K. This day was planned as our "free" day, meaning we had some ideas of things we wanted to do on our own, without a set schedule in mind. So after getting up and having breakfast, we returned to our room …
Jeff and I woke early to prepare for our 11:00 meeting at Trinity House. Our lucky weather streak continued with sunny skies and a slightly cooler day with a high of 73 degrees. I figured out how to get to Trinity House using the Underground and how long it would take us to get there. We took the Circle Line to Tower Hill, exited the station next …
... a couple hundred shots. We saw Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, St James' Palace, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and the houses of Parliament. All good. We then got a bit ****** in a pub with some Aussie chick named Ailsa after the walk. The last Ailsa I knew was flamin' killed off in Home and Away in 1999.
Tuesday night Julie and I ventured out to Craven Cottage to see the might of Fulham. It was an FA Cup game ...
... our bags checked in, straight through to Wellington, so at least we didn't have that to worry about!
This was going to be a long trip, with no breaks in between. In fact, going by the route that we were, we had flown almost 13,000 miles by the time we got to New Zealand.
- Edinburgh - Heathrow (331 miles) = Flight time 60 minutes
- Heathrow - Dubai ...
... I couldn't afford it though. We got off the bus and walked around for a bit where we found a hotdog place. The hotdogs are a lot different. They do not put cheese on their chili dogs... that was a little strange. Overall they were good though.
After eating we went to Trafalgar Square where there is a monument celebrating Nelson's defeat of Napoleon at the battle of Trafalgar (my history friends will like this). It was beautiful! Next we went ...
