The Glendale Hyde Park Hotel has 20 guest rooms, decorated in a traditional style, which all have en suite bathroom facilities, and are equipped with basic amenities such as a direct-dial telephone, radio, satellite TV, tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge, which means you can keep food in your room if you don't want to splash out on a restaurant nearby.

The Glendale Hyde Park Hotel also offers babysitting services to guests on request and high-speed Internet access is available.
The hotel's trump card is its fantastic London location. From Paddington, you can easily access many of London's brightest and best-loved landmarks, and you will find activities for all ages and weathers to enjoy. If the sun is shining you might want to head to Hyde Park, London's largest green space, situated just ten minutes away from the hotel. Here you can go horse riding and boating on the Serpentine Lake, visit The Serpentine modern art gallery, play tennis or take one of the many jogging routes through the stunning greenery. West of Hyde Park you will find Kensington Palace and Gardens, the former home of Princess Dina, who has been honoured with a memorial in the gardens. Here you can take a tour of the Palace or visit one of their seasonal exhibitions, then partake in the quintessentially English custom of Afternoon Tea in The Orangery restaurant before hitting the shops or bars on Kensington High Street. Anyone coming to London to explore the capital's famed shops will be thrilled to find Oxford Street so close, just a few tube stops away from the hotel, where you can peruse over 300 shops along a mile and a half stretch. Whiteley's shopping and cinema complex, which is also home to a number of restaurants, is located 450m north-west of the Glendale Hyde Park Hotel on Queensway, close to Bayswater Underground Station.
Glendale Hyde Park Hotel is located close to a number of mainline and London Underground stations, such as Paddington Station, which can be found 250m northeast of the hotel. Paddington mainline station, which is linked to Paddington Underground Station, is home to the Heathrow Express service, which reaches terminals 1,2 and 3 of Heathrow Airport in 15 minutes.
As a low-cost, tourist-class hotel, The Glendale Hyde Park is more of a place to lay your head after a day's sight seeing than a place to luxuriate in, but previous guests seem very satisfied with the hotel and it is better appointed than some of the other budget hotels nearby. Guests who have mobility difficulties should be aware that, as a town house conversion, the hotel doesn't have a lift, so you may want to request a ground floor room on check-in.
