Although very basic and tiny room, the hotel is accommodating and close to the places where we wanted to go.

Historical Traveler Reviews Park Hotel London
My brother reserved a room for 2 nights at Park hotel, got a room after 11 hours flight, he unpacked, was told he had to move to another room, and then told he had to walk to another hovel instead, he was exhausted, had to carry 3 items of luggage in a freezing cold day. The second hotel, ( --- ) which he had to find is utterly disgraceful, has threadbare carpets throughout, no lift, no heating, broken window pane, space for one bed, toilet lid does not stay up as handbasin in the way, no doorhandle,used soap, no room number, smells awful, broken tv set and only cornflakes for breakfast. After surviving a very uncomfortable night in a tiniest room, wearing his winter coat for warmth,he complained to staff, they put a mobile heater in his room, stick some tape over the hole on the window, and gave him £5 refund. I had a look at his room and was disgusted, worse than a prison cell. Please don't go to Corbigoe hotel in Belgrave road near Pimlico.

Date of stay Jan. 16, 2004 This hotel is one of several tiny B&B hotels on the street. I arrived on an early flight and got to the hotel several hours before check -in time but was treated to a cup of coffee while they got a room ready. The property is currently undergoing refurbishment and some rooms were not available. My single had been freshly painted with a new mattress, boxspring, carpet and TV. The bed took up most of the room. I travel out of my suitcase so it didn't bother me that there was no closet, drawers or shelf space but that could be a problem to some guests. The bathroom was a prefabricated unit with shower, toilet, and sink. I had pleny of heat and hot water .
I did not see any of the other 17 rooms so I can't comment on them. The staff was courteous and friendly addressing me by name each time I entered or left the property. This place may not be for everyone but if you need a safe, clean, and quiet space to use as a base while you are exploring London this might be for you.
Don't Think About Staying Here!!! Please I Beg you!!
I would rather sleep on a park bench than stay at this hotel!!
The hotel management does the following:
1. Overbooks all rooms, so they are on a first come, first serve basis- imagine arriving to London with your reservation & then finding out there are no more hotel rooms. However, they are always willing to find something at marked up prices. Just don't fall for it! We arrived at 7 am from an international flight & they told us to come back at 11 am- We cam back & had to fight & argue for a room- even though we had already paid with our credit card-
2. If you are unlucky enough to get a room, be aware: there is no heat, no hot water & no shower pressure- if you are willing to take a cold shower. The rooms are dirty, dirty sheets.
3. The management is not polite- very rude, not courteous & unwilling to help you with anything except when you pay for your room-
We have been traveling around the world, slept in tents, in hostals, in 5 star hotels, on top of mountains. We have never found a place as disgusting & needy of a terrible rating more than this place- Please, please, please- find any other hotel in London to stay in- even if it is the only room left in town- in that case- most likely you'll arrive & not have a room.
Please don't stay here!!!

After a physically excruciating but safe and smooth 23hr flight, we finally arrived at London. It was early in the morning so the runways and way out were not chaotic. We decided to take the tube instead if the Heathrow Express train. We had to get off at Hammersmith station to change from the Piccadilly to the District line and finally got off at …
... Square at the end of the mall, all the streets were blocked and we could see the Irish Guard marching up the street. We hurried down the street and took up a post along the mall. There were several Brits around us who gave us a running commentary of the happenings. There were many horses regally outfitted prancing up and down the mall rivaled only in their finery by the riders. We saw the “master of the Horses” identified by one of my ...
Arrive Heathrow at 6:35am; Leave 8:50am We arrived at Heathrow terminal 5 to a damp morning. We had to transfer between two of the three buildings that make up Terminal 5 using the underground shuttle train. The main building, where we waited for our flight to Pisa, is bright and spacious. We had to go through British ...
... me in as one of their own for the time I was there.
I then descended on my other homeland, Ireland.
And here I rode bikes along coastlines, sat on cliff tops, opened a circus festival, made many new friends and discovered the far flung places I'd heard of in the Celtic Thunder songs I so much love.
I had a down point when I had my laptop stolen, but I think I handled that fairly well...and it led me to two of the most generous people on ...
... point. I liked the 2nd pub, was pretty cool. The third pub was the best - a mix of pub, with dance floor. There was a man in the toilet who gave you hand wash and towel and chatted with you. Then he expected a tip. Never seen that before. Sadly we left and ended up at a club, which was all doof doof and too noisy for conversation. Only in the last 10 minutes did I discover there was a pub area downstairs which was much cooler. Then we left and ...
