The room was basic but clean. The bedding (as advertised) was lovely. Small but very comfy bed. Good location. I got what I paid for and will return.

Not black... neither white
I went to London for professional reasons a few months ago. I work on a spanish FM Radio station and I had to write a review about a concert which was to be celebrated in the Carling Academy. The band's record company took us to the HYDE PARK TOWERS. The area was awesome, though I hadn't expect such a small place, but I must admitt I got a retro feeling because of the lights and colours in the hallways and rooms and liked it. If I stayed too long I would have got depressed, but it was just for one night. My room wee really tiny, as the bathroom and the TV, but seemed to be clean enough. The room structure with its weird wall forms and its beds each one in each side of the room. Well, I wouldn't stay here for tourist purposes (in fact, it wasn't the case) but for what I needed it was OK
Nice hotel/great location
After reading the reviews, we didn't know what to expect, but booked the hotel anyway on lastminute. The price was too good to pass up! The rooms were small, but clean and cozy. The staff were friendly and very accomodating. The best part about this hotel, is it's location. It is across the street from the Tube station and lot's of shopping/restaurants and near Hyde Park. Don't let the small rooms scare you. They are small, but no smaller than other rooms at major hotel chains in London. Who want's to stay in their room anyway?!
Small but comfortable
I booked a single room here through lastminute for £36/night (double £50/night). The first night I was given a terrible room that shook every time a tube train went past (approx every 2-3 minutes). I asked th change but there was nothing they could do until morning as it was full. The next day I got a much better room to stay in for my remaining 2 weeks so I will put the 1st room down to being bad luck. Breakfast is quite nice, warm crossants & a choice of a few cereals & fruit. Room is small but clean & bathroom also ok. Location is superb, right next to Bayswater tube station.
Definitely worth the money if you can get it at this rate.
Real friendly place to stay
I stayed here a few weeks ago, and it was really great. Very friendly staff, the reservations manager, Claudio, was great, he gave me a superb rate, sorted out my room and like all the other staff was really helpful.
I am going back to the hotel in August.
Would look else where
I know hotel rooms are small in Europe, but I was a bit surprised to see how small. My husband and I could barely pass each other in the room. The bed was comfortable, but you had to wait about 10 minutes before the shower had any warm water. The breakfast buffet consisted of croissants, rolls, cereals, coffee and juices, by the fifth morning I had lost my appetite.
Our room was very quiet and the hotel is located right around the corner from two Underground stations that are on three of the major lines.
If we go back to London I would look into staying elsewhere. But then again, we were only in our room to sleep.
Hyde Park Towers Disappointing
We expected our room in London to be small, but 2 people couldn't walk past the bed at the same time and there wasn't even room to open a suitcase except on the bed. We reached our room by going up and down many stairs, through doors, over a fire escape and around so many corners it was commical. The continental breakfast consisted of cold cereal and orange juice, coffee and tea. On the brighter side, it was only one block from Bayswater tube stop, the staff was friendly and it was clean. I'd try elsewhere next time.
I stayed there this past summer for 5 nights. It seemed ok, not too bad anyway but about a month after I got home, I was infested with Bed Bugs from this hotel. BEWARE!
Don't do it
Even by London standards the rooms are small. Actually small is not
quite the right description - miniscule, minute, tiny and unbelievable
all work better as a description. I changed rooms after one night and
got a double - just as bad but with 2 beds in it!
On checking out (and waiting in a queue for 20 minutes for the pleasure) I was amused at the conversation around me - How utterly, chronically bad the place was.
Laterooms price EXCELLENT
My wife and I stayed 3 nights B&B in a modest but perfectly acceptable double room. Staff were afriendly and stay was excellent value at £45 per night with breakfast for two. At this price you could not expect too much............we'll be back.

... into it, as opposed to Westminster, but then I reckon there is something more magical about Westminster (architecturally I mean, I don't have a religious opinion).
Surprisingly, all of the above took us through to 4pm when we went home (and I iced my feet for the following 20 mins) before heading to Harrods, to see it in all it's lit-up glory... Wow that place on a Saturday night is ...
"Deeds, not words" - Suffragette slogan
Has a summer of horrendous news got you feeling down about the world? With war all over the Middle East, viruses running rampant and the weather becoming more and more deadly, it's easy to lose your faith in the world. But I have found the cure - a morning at the arrivals terminal. While standing there you will see the joy of people being reunited with their loved ones. You will see families coming together after absences long and ...
Our last morning in Paris was spent sightseeing in our local area and having breakfast with some of the locals. Before too long we were back on the Metro heading for the airport for the next leg of our holiday. There were so many people at the airport, I actually thought we would miss our flight and to top it all off Mary was searched for a second time, or should I say touched up!! The look on her face was priceless, unlucky ...
... to start our day. Will was not very happy with our location because we ended up wasting almost 2 hours just travelling everyday. We did have the opportunity, on our way to the hotel, to see London at night. It was stunning. Del Boy showed us Buckingham Palace, the Parliament buildings, Big Ben, the London Eye, Tower Bridge, London Bridge, the Millinium Brigde (which is actually known as the Wobbly Bridge), Westminister Abbey, St. Paul's Cathedral and many other ...
