Shaftesbury Metropolis London Hyde Park Hotel reviews

On every web site the rooms are described as small, and I was prepared to it. Nobody has described that the hotel has several rooms under the level of the street and you have not light and air because in front of your windows is positioned air conditioning machines working for the hotel. I've requested another room but the alternative was a room without window. A the third change (one day after) I've obtained a nice room at the last floor. Very very bad treatment.

I spent a weekend with my husband in "luxury" room, very small (the staff told me that regular one is even smaller; cannot imagine), didn´t have space to put my things, some were hanged on the window, and rain coat in WC as there were no hooks in the room, elevator was broken and we were on the 2nd floor, tiny stairs. Hotel appropriate for max 2 days. I never staid in a smaller luxury room.

Delux room in the basement; too small to fit in normal size closet and to fit the safe into the closet; single windows allow you to follow up on the street conversations. Dirty with the years' old dust (alergic reaction after 1 night - so if you are suffering from astma avoid at all costs). No one cleaned the room during our stay; to get coffie and bathroom supplies we had to go to the reception.. You get better value for money in the youth hostel.

Everything about the Shaftesbury Metropolis was excellent, especially the three bellhops we encountered during our stay. The location was a bit father then noted in the ads, but it took about 10-15 mins. to walk there from Paddington. We did not have the breakfast, as we felt it was too expensive. Would definitely stay there again, and recommend it to all of our friends.

This was a great place to stay in central London. I travel to London more than once a year and I would recommend this place for its proximity to the park, Heathrow Express, and Paddington Tube; nearby dining options; price for quality/location; cleanliness of the room; responsiveness of the staff; free WIFI that actually works. The only drawback-- and it didn't really matter to me but might to some-- is that the room was so small there was barely a spot to put my luggage on the floor. It was the smallest room I've ever seen. For all the good things about the place, especially the cleanliness, I say who cares if the room is small? It was still very comfortable and spotlessly CLEAN!

The location is perfect with a bus stop in front of the hotel and very close to the Tube. Interesting rate. The room is well furnished but small as everywhere in London. The bathroom is larger than supposed. I suggest this hotel in the Paddington Area

Abbiamo all'allogiato per 3 notti in una camera matrimoniale deluxe e ci siamo trovati molto bene.La camera è più piccola rispetto alle immagini del sito,ma è comunque provvista di tv al plasma, con cui si poteva anche navigare su internet, phon,ferro da stiro e microonde.Utile anche l'aria condizionata.La camera e il bagno erano puliti,la zona è molto tranquilla a cinque minuti dalla metro paddington.L'unica nota negativa è stata la colazione in quanto non era compresa nel prezzo.Lo consiglio a tutti.

For London, the hotel was excellent. Rooms were exceptionally small, but that was to be expected -- and the amenities (wifi and ethernet internet included, iron/board, comfortable bed and shower, lcd tv) were excellent. Despite limited space, room was very clean, comfortable, and very nice.

I was very pleased with the room and the friendliness of the staff. I was made to feel welcome instantly and checked in quickly at 14:00 The location allowed easy access to local restaurants and bars, and quick access to central London and the West End, which was preferable to the ridiculous hotel prices in those areas! My partner and I had a lovely weekend stay, thank you
