If you’ve already visited Royal Lancaster London, you probably won’t be surprised.

Excellent hotel in perfect location for short visit to london

Not the most modern of hotels but the rooms are well appointed and very clean. great views over hyde park from our room on the 12th floor. breakfast is well worth the price with a really well thought out choice of food. had dinner in the thai restaurant and the best i can say is that it was underwhelming and expensive for what we got. staff are really great. a short walk from paddington station so if you are flying into heathrow it is perfectly placed.

A quick overnight stay

A pretty good hotel, chosen simply because of a work party being held there. got a much better rate through hotels click than the hotel were offering. be warned that parking at the hotel will cost you an extra £30 though (which explains why the car park was empty on a saturday night).
a good clean hotel (although rooms quite small unless you upgrade) and a great situation, right next to hyde park and a ten minute walk to oxford street.
the continental breakfast offering is poor unless you pay more for a higher level of continental breakfast or even more for a cooked breakfast - this lets the hotel down for me as it comes across as mean.
al in all, a good 4 star hotel but a hotel that is trying to get every last penny out of you by charging extra for all sorts of things you expect as part of the standard price.
