We flew Malaysian Airlines Business Class leaving at 4.25pm to KL arriving at 10.30pm after a wonderful flight, so much leg room, good movies & delicious food, oh and did I mention the red wine St Halletts must remember that one for when we are at home. The flight from KL to London was a breeze catching around 7 hours sleep on a very …
La primera impresión de hoy fue recordar que hoy nuestra TravelCard sólo funciona off-peak, es decir después de las 9:30, y tenemos el tour de Wimbledon a las 10:30. Caminamos hasta la estación de Notting Hill Gate y ahí esperamos, junto con otras personas, para poder ingresar al Tube. Cuando bajamos del metro había …
Tempranito tomamos el metro y el DLR hasta Greenwich. Visitamos el Royal Observatory (fuera del London Pass) y tomamos el RiverCruise tour hasta Westminster. Ibamos a meternos a la abadía, pero los domingos no hay tours, sólo servicio. Total que llegamos a King's Cross y vimos la plataforma 9 3/4.
Despues de nuestro desayuno, tomamos un par de camiones para llegar a St. Paul Cathedral, cuyo tamaño impresiona, subimos los primeros 279 escalones hasta la Whispering . ., luego solito me aventuré los restantes 119 y 106 (aunque más grandes) escalones hasta ..

Day 14 we got up and went to mums and dads room and had breakfast. When we went out of the hotel we got on the train and went to the Tower of London and did a tour there and it was like a s and e class but being there was much better than being in class. After that we went on a weird looking train called a tube that ...

Beatifull hotel right in front of Kensington Gardens. Just 10min on bus to Oxford Circus or Picadilly Circus, or anywhere else since the tube is just around the corner.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton London Hyde Park
We spent the last night of our honeymoon here; not romantic by any means, but it was certainly nice enough and a great deal for London in this price range (we booked via internet). The hotel is a little old but it has charm, and the bathroom seemed spotless with complimentary toiletries, clean white towels, the whole thing was white. We were on an overnight layover, and its proximity to the Tube was unbeatable, making it easy to get to the airport. Staff was also very nice; didn't have problems with the air conditioner because it was cold outside, but the heat worked fine! We were given an upgrade to a Club Room which was of average London size, free coffee and cookies in the room, and the street outside was full of great ethnic restaurants. I wouldn't have wanted to spend a true honeymoon here, not luxurious enough for that, but for a layover or a quick trip to London it must be one of the best deals around!
We were disappointed when we arrived at the hotel having stayed at the Heathrow Hilton on several occasions. Our room, at the back, was comfortable and adequate for the one night we stayed. However, the dining room was very pleasant and the breakfast was definitely up to Hilton standards with a very good choice of food. The staff were helpful and friendly and the underground just round the corner. I would stay there again.
Stayed here for three nights before joining a birding trip in SE England. We spent very little time in the room (ours was small), but service, hospitality and cleanliness were all in good order.
We stayed at this hotel during low-season. Got a room for 4 nights really cheap on their webpage (probably about half of what the normal price is) which included dinner for one night and full english breakfast each morning. This was our first time staying at a Hilton and after experiencing other London hotels this one was a real treat.
BEWARE, I purchased a Hilton On Line Special Non Refundable Rate. The room was so HOT- I went to the front desk to ask about the A/C and was told it did not work in my room, the windows did not open and was told all the windows on that floor were bolted shut. The paint was peeling in the bathroom and it was not very clean, also the windows where so dirty and the curtains gray instead of white. I asked if I could be placed on the opposite side as the hallway was a good 10 degrees cooler than the room! I was told NO- they would give me a small desk fan! I wanted to leave but THE RATE WAS NON REFUNDABLE! I would NEVER stay again or recommend this property to anyone. I stayed in May of 2004 so I can only guess how bad it will be in summer! I booked with the property because of the Hilton Name-but this is NO HILTON! And the rate 99 British Pounds (apprx 210.USD) was not that great to have to endure such poor conditions!
Close to the Tube but old hotel
We recently stayed at the Hilton in Hyde Park. This hotel is very close to the Queensway tube stop, so for convience it is #1. As for the hotel, I was dissapointed as to how run down it was for a Hilton. Usually Hilton Hotels have high standards but this one was much older and the rooms are very small and we stayed in a suite but I guess that is to be expected for London Hotels. The hotel just needs a bit of an upgrade. The staff were helpful and the rooms were clean but I don't know if I would stay here again for the cost we paid for the room and what we got...
After all the great hotels we stayed at this one was a dissapointment. There was construction going on right outside our window, the room was very hot, the windows had to be unlocked to open, the breakfast was not included and was 15 pounds for cereal and juice. (For 5 pounds you can get a full english breakfast next door at the little cafe)
The staff was also poor, for the first two days I could not dial out from the room, the internet did not work, and at one point they locked the mini-bar and then tried to tell me I did not have one in my room when I had used it the day before.
I would not suggest this hotel, for the money you can find alot better hotels in London.
Got a great deal on one of the rooms through a site sponsored by the London visitors bureau. Needed a second room and had to pay 30GBP more for a "deluxe". Arrive early and front desk is helpful and friendly. In fact they were great the whole week if sometimes a little unknowledgeable. The deluxe room was small and clean with a great view of Kensington Gardens. The "discount" room had a view of the back alley and other side of the hotel but was almost half again as big! If you get a choice skip the deluxe and get the bigger rooms on the backside of the hotel. Housekeeping was fantastic and they kept us well suppled in toiletries. They even lined up our junk neatly on the bathroom shelves and put my spare shoes in the closet. A lot of the staff are Eastern European and English is clearly not their first language but they were all friendly and tried hard.. The hotel deal included breakfast which ended up being well worth it. Some of the items were a little odd to our American palates but it was hot fresh and well prepared.
Great hotel - no complaints
I stayed at this hotel from Dec - Jan 2004 and thought it was great.
Had a room overlooking Hyde Park - unbeatable view.The room was the normally small standard typical in Europe - i had a "single" - but who stays in their room all day in London anyway? The room was very clean and spotless, service was excellent and timely. To top it off, this hotel is 30 yards away from the closest tube station and only 2 blocks away from the second closest tube station. I highly recommend staying here.
Great Value, was pleasently surprised
After staying at a "5 Star" hotel in London and being disappointed we were a little worried about what we would get at a Hilton for the price.
We were pleasently surpised, the room was large, and very clean - the bathroom and shower were large enough for two people to get ready in and also very clean.
The staff was pleasant (besides the front desk being a little slow). I would go back to this hotel, it really exceeded my expectations for a smaller Hilton. For London prices this place was a great find.
Also it is right across from Hyde Park so the walks were beautiful!
