    Historical Traveler Reviews Queens Park Hotel London

    Central location

    from

    We stayed at the hotel from 17-23 March 2004. In many ways it is typical of the hotel you will find in Europe. Hotels in Europe unless you pay a premuim price at generally at a lower standard than a compariable USA hotel. The hotel was within 2 blocks of 2 tube stops, Kensington park was 1 block away. A quite modern multiple level shopping center was 2 blocks away. We stayed much of our time seeing sites and not staying in the hotel. I was surprise at the number of people that stayed at the hotel. Most of the lobby was painted in an apricot color contrasted with antique white so it may give some the appearance of the hotel being dirty. The room may have been repaired by less than skilled labor as the wallpaper was joined at the corner which is not normally done. The grout in the tub was a little messy but the room was relatively clean. As noted the breakfast consisted of fruit cocktail,peaches,pineapple,hard wheat/white rolls,juice and coffee. You had the option of corn flakes or rice crispies.A menu existed so you could upgrade the breakfast to a standard English breakfast. The elevator held at best 3 people but was working. The staff was helpful and a free morning paper was provided. Not a first class hotel but okay given we didn't stay in the room all day

    Decent hotel

    from

    The Queen's Park was a decent hotel. The location was good, it was close to the subway and Paddington Station and just minutes from downtown attractions. The staff was polite and my room was clean. It had a safe in the room as well as a hair dryer which was handy. My only complaints were that the upper mattress on the bed was not particularly comfortable. It was old and needed either a padded cover or to be replaced. The elevator was also very small and old and I didn't feel comfortable in it as it did get stuck once. I want to note that the rooms are very small and don't have air conditioning (didn't need it) or cable TV like hotels in North America but if you want a no frills, inexpensive hotel in a good location, this could be for you. I would stay there again.

    VERY GOOD!

    from

    I write in reference to my stay at The Queens Park Hotel, London. I stayed with my wife and three kids in January 04 and my family and I loved it. The staff are friendly, the breakfast was good, the rooms were clean and the whole ambience of the hotel did meet our expectations. This hotel does live up to its mission statement of "...providing the highest standards of service and hospitality, with the comfort and facilities you would expect of a modern luxury hotel" I can reccommend this hotel to anyone seeking to stay right opposite the Hyde Park and looking for best possible rates! My family and I make regular trips to London and I can say that I will not have to worry about which hotel I stay at, as we have been very satisfied with The Queens Park Hotel.

    Loved it!

    from

    My husaband and I stayed in February 2004,I must say that I was very satisfied with the level of service, cleanliness and great hospitality received. I sure can recommed this hotel to any travellor looking for great bargain rates at a great location! I have read the other reviews and in all fairness, I do not agree with the negative comments. I shall certainly stay here again!

    Very disappointed

    from

    My husband, son and myself, as well as my in-laws stayed (almost) at the Queen's Park Hotel in November of 2003. We arrived at the hotel and checked in. I had read some reviews so I was prepared for the tiny lifts. I was not prepared for the extremely split-level architecture, which I know is typical of London hotels, which was okay except that my mother-in-law has had both knees replaced and the stairs were extremely difficult for her. Our room was confirmed as a triple, meaning it was supposed to have 3 twin beds but it ended up having a double and a roll-away twin - that was broken. The bathroom was dirty and the room was tiny with virtually no space for people, let alone people and their luggage. We switched hotels (we went to the Hilton Olympia) at 10:30 in the evening on the night of our arrival and we contested the hotel charges based on misrepresentation. I would caution anyone from staying there.

    A little sordid

    from

    Stayed last weekend; very dissappointing all round except for the location of the hotel...but you really don't want to go to the room.

    Must have had the same room as other reviewer Christopher: the worst thing was the old spring bed and the absence of a mattress cover: just a thin heet between me and the old mattress!! enough said. The brochure description of the hotel (superbly comfortable rooms) may have been true 30 years ago: today's rooms are the same ones without maintenance.

    If you can afford an extra 10 bucks, stay somewhere else.

    DISAPPOINTED (AGAIN!)

    from

    I stayed here last summer with my husband and 3 children. We only stayed one night thank goodness as the rooms we were allocated were disappointing to say the least. The check-in was a nightmare. The staff can't speak the language properly and don't seem to know what they're doing. However, I am always disappointed with London hotels. I feel like I'm being ripped off. Travellers from abroad, I hope you don't think the hotels in the capital are typical of th UK. There are some extremely good ones elsewhere.

    Very Disappointed with Queens Park

    from

    My girlfriend and I have just returned from three days in London staying at the Queens Park Hotel. Before we arrived we were under the impression that the hotel was of a high standard, and right up until check-in this seemed to be the case. Then things started to go downhill. We could barely squeeze into the tiny lift, and when we arrived at our floor there was hardly enough room to get out of the lift. When we finally struggled into our room it seemed like we'd jumped to a different hotel. The room was very small, maybe only 7ft wide, so you could only get out of one side of the double bed. There was a small TV on a bracket stuck on the wall at the other side of the bed, so that you invariably bang your head when getting out. There was a big damp patch on the ceiling that looked as though it had been there for some time. There was nowhere to sit, not even a small chair, presumably because of the severe lack of space. The real problem for us though was the bathroom. When we arrived it wasn't very clean. Then we tried to use the shower. The shower cubicle was supposed to have sliding doors, but these had been taken out and a poor quality shower curtain put in their place. This meant that water went EVERYWHERE! What a mess. The shower head was fixed at about 8ft high so the water flew straight over our head, meaning that neither of us could take a proper shower.

    Overall, the hotel was a great disappointment. We still had a good time, and my girlfriend had a good 21st birthday, but it was no thanks to Queens Park.

    A good word for Queens Park

    from

    My wife and I stayed a week at the Queens Park Hotel in October 2003. We would definitely stay there again. Queens Park is a no frills place, but it is far from shabby. The premises are clean, the rooms and furnishings functional, the staff helpful and the continental breakfast adequate. In addition, the hotel has an excellent location accessible by public transport and the rates are bargain ones for London. In short, it fully meets the needs of those travelers for whom a hotel is a place to sleep and start the day with a breakfast. I rate it as above average in its category.

    Wouldn't stay here again

    from

    Stayed at the Queens Park Hotel at the end of July,2003. Should have known that there would be problems when only 1 person and a suitcase would fit in the elevator at a time and then the elevator wouldn't close!

    Very narrow hallways and very, very small rooms.

    Not much of a breakfast and the room was too small (again) for the number of guests who were trying to eat. Not a 3 star hotel, in my experience!

    The hotel was on a quiet street and had good access to the subway. One could also get on the city hop on/hop off tour bus, at Marble Arch, approx. 15-20 min. walk through Kensington Gardens. The staff was very nice(almost apologetic). Wouldn't return.

The market was packed and went on for a few miles down a winding street in Notting Hill. There were a lot of jewelry and clothing booths but what I was really interested in was the food. We finally made our way down to some produce stands and I bought so much for more than half the ...

    Eighteen days (less a few work days) in London is a reasonable amount of time to do all the standard tourist stuff plus partake in some off the wall activities such as attending tank driving school. So here is what took place during the middle of my London stay.

    I attended three plays: one at the Globe Theater and two in the city's West End theater district. The play at the Globe (a replica of the original playhouse) was "The Holy Warriors". I selected this over a ...

DAY 45 Did the Tower of London tour today, so much history here and checked out the Crown Jewels, very impressive including a 530carat diamond, wow! Spent a bit more time here than we anticipated, so our whirlwind tour turned into a hurricane tour, jumped in a London cab, that was kinda cool! Had a look around Downing Street, where something was going down, Whitehall, Scotland Yard, Trafalgar ...
