One of the hardest things to do it get a decent hotel when you don’t know the area. I was searching for a good hotel in London. After looking at the usual hotel chains I found and booked the Blakemore Hotel Hyde Park London. This hotel booking was done purely on the basis of the Booking.com ratings. At the time of going to post with this review it was 8.1/10 which is very good.
We arrived in London in really bad traffic and ended up getting a tube to Lancaster Gate, and walking the 7 or 8 minutes to the Blakemore. The Blakemore hotel is really nice in the great location on a quiet street.
Having arrived tired at the hotel, we found the check in to be very efficient and handled well by a very friendly receptionist.
The Blakemore Hotel Rooms
We got rooms 311 and 312 as we were there as a group of 4. The rooms are very nice, bright, airy, clean (I personally preferred 311, street view) and had excellent air conditioning. The rooms are serviced daily and are done so to a great standard. One point to note – one of the main things we noticed was that the beds are so comfortable you will want to stay there.
The rooms have TV, internet points, a room safe, ironing facilities as well as tea and coffee making facilities.
The Bathrooms in the club rooms are very nice with great product in bathrooms.
Another great point about the Blakemore Hotel is the Free WiFi which is accessible in the rooms also – many hotels have Free WiFi but only in the public areas and not in the rooms.The free WiFi allowed us to plan our day without incuring hefty 3G roaming charges.
The Blakemore Hotel Food
We tried the food in the restaurant and it proved to be very good, from curries to burgers and Caesar salads. The service was excellent and done so with a smile. We then enjoyed the Euro 2012 playoffs in the lounge which is very nice and relaxing.
The Blakemore Hotel, Hyde Park, London : Review Conclusion
I was very impressed by the Blakemore Hotel, the rooms are a perfect size for those looking for a great city break
The location is very good, just opposite Hyde Park and within a 10 minute walk of Bayswater, Queensway and Lancaster Gate tube stations.
I will certainly consider it on my next trip to London and it will be a hotel I will revisit again in the future.
