Search for cheapest prices: Hyde Park Suites
Hyde Park Suites offer a range of serviced apartments in one of London's most exclusive and picturesque districts, which offer guests the experience of a half hotel, half home. Furnished in a variety of designs, in managed blocks with a very friendly staff, these apartments are stylish, well-outfitted homes away from home for those visiting London. Located in Bayswater, an area which is home to celebrities such as Blur's Damon Albarn and actress Keira Knightley, you are within walking distance of Hyde Park and many of London's best shopping districts and historical landmarks.
Apartments range from an Economy Studio to a Superior Duplex apartment, which can sleep up to five people, so is a very good accommodation option for families visiting the city. Apartments are furnished in a chic, minimalist, contemporary style, with colour accents and comfy furnishings to bring some warmth to the stylish rooms. There is a wide range of amenities to ensure you have all creature comforts and modern technology to make your stay relaxing and hassle free. These include, broadband and wireless Internet access, a hairdryer, ironing facilities, a fully stocked kitchen, a TV with cable and satellite channels, weekly room servicing and cots if required.
Having a self-contained unit allows you to live like a local during your stay and offers you greater freedom and privacy than if you were staying in a hotel. If you are travelling on a budget, being able to cook your own food will help you to save money, especially with two 24-hour supermarkets nearby. If you do decide to eat out for a treat, the area contains many fantastic restaurants, including Russian food at Erebuni; Austrian food at Tiroli, which is accompanied with a side of yodelling; and elegant French cuisine at Le Cafe Anglais.
Apartment blocks are scattered in between the Bayswater and Paddington district and all are just a few minutes walk from Hyde Park, a stunning green space, which offers a picturesque haven from the urban sprawl of the city. Here you can enjoy, pedalo, horse and solar-powered shuttle boat rides; rent a tennis court; vent any grievances at the famed Speakers' Corner bandstand; see the original site of London's gallows; walk under Marble Arch, a pleasure traditionally reserved for the royal family and their protectors; and head to Oxford Street for an afternoon of shopping in some of London's largest stores, including Selfridges Department Store. To the west of the apartments lies the elite yet bohemian area of Notting Hill, where you can explore unique boutiques, pubs and restaurants; and Kensington Palace and Gardens, which has previously been home to Princess Diana and Queen Victoria. Whether you experience rain or shine and no matter what your interests are, you will find something nearby to fascinate and entertain you.
Most apartments are located near Bayswater tube station, which services the District and Circle lines. From here you have direct links to Paddington Station (where the Heathrow Express Train terminates), Victoria Station (where the Gatwick Express Train terminates) and many other areas of London, including Notting Hill, which is famed for its carnival. If you are driving to the hotel, it is situated near the main A4 road, which can be accessed via the M4 and M25; however, guests should note that the hotel is in the congestion charge zone. An NCP car park is located very nearby in Queensway for overnight parking.
Choosing to stay in a serviced apartment in London has plenty of advantages, on top of a fantastic location from which you can access major transport hubs and local attractions by foot. However, guests staying at the hotel should be aware that rooms can be slightly cramped, and if you were hoping for a room with a view, you may be disappointed. Guests should also be cautious when requesting a room with a balcony, as these are often just decorative and may not be safe to stand on!
