Simply the Best
I have been finding it difficult to trust hotel details given on line - but The Parkwood has changed all that as it was even better than I hoped it would be.
This budget hotel is in a great location near to Hyde park and Oxford Street.
The room was very clean and well equipped for this price bracket.
A very pleasant surprise
I have stayed at numerous hotels in London over the years and find that there are few pleasant surprises at hotels there.
However the Parkwood hotel was a very pleasant surprise. Okay, its not a boutique hotel and some of the decor is a little dated, but I found the hotel to be quiet, cosy, comfortable and quite homely (very unusual for London!). The staff were really helpful too. Despite all of this the main benefit is clearly the location - just a couple of minutes walk from Marble Arch and Oxford street. I would definitely stay here again.
Life in the basementt
Room 18 is in the sub-basement past the bicycle, down the stairs past the ironing board and trouser press, next to the breakfast room.
At 3 pm there was a pungent smell of frying, presumably from the morning's breakfast. The room was tidy and the beds had clean sheets. the window wouldn't shut but gave a stiking view of the 2m square shaft from ground floor level. The en suite was clean but smelled very damp although the shower worked well albeit a bit small for a 1.7m tall man. Towels were clean and soap and shower gel were available. The heating was an oil filled radiator on wheels and the air conditioning was a desk fan. Totally functional but at £120 did not feel like value for money. Not an experience to repeat.
Great place, very helpful friendly staff and OMG an amazing english breakfast. Location is ideal!
I was a bit nervous as price for this location was ver economic, but when I go there I was gladly surprise to meet such friendly and helpful staff.
I arrived 2 hrs earlier for checking in but they invited me very kindle to pass to our family room. English breakfast is just amazing, great quality and for £5 it's a proper bargain. Great place my kids and I can't wait to visit them again. P.s room was cosy and very warm just what was needed for UK winter. 😃
Nothing like the photographs.
Very small and feels very old. I slept well but it is one of those rooms where you can hear the 'neighbours' coming up the stairs to the 4th floor, entering their room and walking about.
Fine for a short stay
Quick and easy check in, great location as went to see a west end show.
Negative: wasn't able to control main heating.
Good value for money
For one night and at this price it was a very pleasant stay.
Staff were friendly, but not over enthusiastic (which I prefer to excessive friendlyness), room and shared facilities were clean, the room hasn't been refurbished in a while and there was a slight draft from the window. But equipped with thick curtains and a little powerful radiator, I was totally fine. The hotel is pretty central, but just round the corner from the big busy streets, so I had a nice relaxing sleep after a short way home after a night out. Would definitely come back and do recommend it to travellers on a budget who are not looking for a luxury stay.
Cosy little hotel near Marble Arch/Hyde Park
Nice little hotel.
Central position at Hyde Park/Marble Arch. Be aware some rooms with shared bath.
