The problem was the bathroom that was so small, but a lot of hotels like this one ...

The Dolphin actually put us up in their "sister" hotel nextdoor called The Shakespeare. This hotel looks like it saw its last renovation some time ago. Carpets and walls were dirty. My advice is don't stay here--you can do better for the same money.

The location is fantastic because near Hyde Park, but also not far from the center of London. Room 26 is wonderful, very quite. The only thing you can't find here is the lift.

(NB! This is the Doplhin Hotel, not the Dolphin Square!) The Dolphin Hotel met our expectations and the reservation worked well. Not spacious, but you can't expect that in semi-central London at those prices. It was a bit too warm, although it was 5-15 celcius outside. Could become a plague in the summer. The dining room is not as big as it appears in the photos, and breakfast lasts only till 9 a.m. which was very irritating. Some beds were a bit hard. The location was nice and quiet. Lots of restaurants around. The nearby Greek restaurant was nice, but beware of the "Indian Connoisseur" restaurant on Norfolk Place.

If you want to stay relatively cheap at a central place in London whithout demands, the "Dolphin" is an ideal Hotel.We became what we expected whithout surprise.But we didn't enjoy the loveless breakfast...

The older gentleman at the front desk while we were there was very helpful and informative of the surrounding area and events in London. The other front desk personnnel would do well to be as informed as he was. Overall, I was very happy with my stay at the hotel and would stay at the same place again.
