Recently refurbished Hyde Park hotel
Located close to both Paddington rail station and Hyde Park, the Classic Hotel London is well-positioned for all types of visitors.
The 2-star property’s Sussex Garden address means that visitors are easily connected to London Paddington train and underground stations, making it simple to travel across the city or nationally from one of London’s busiest stations. It’s also an easy hotel to reach for those arriving at one of the city’s international airports.
Each room at the recently refurbished grand townhouse includes en-suite bathroom facilities, colour television and DVD player, tea and coffee making devices, hairdryer, and telephone. Wireless internet connectivity is available throughout for free of charge. Guests can choose between single, double, triple, and even quadruple rooms.
Additionally the hotel offers guests free parking, although it’s on a strictly limited basis so be prepared to call ahead. 24 hour front desk staff are on hand to offer further amenities as well as a safety deposit box service. For visitors on business, meeting rooms and business facilities (fax, photocopy) ensure that all your needs are catered for.
A complimentary continental breakfast, served in the building’s dining room, is included within the cost of your stay.
Those that do arrive at or use Paddington station during their visit, be sure to check out the bronze statue of Paddington Bear, a fictional children’s character devised by Michael Bond in 1958. The iconic character, who arrived at Paddington from the exotic climes of Peru, has been enjoyed by children for generations. On the station’s concourse you’ll also find a Paddington Bear stall where you can purchase soft toys in an array of different sizes. Consider this one of London’s lesser known treats.
Some of the city’s more obvious tourist destinations are within a short distance of the Classic Hotel London. As well as Hyde Park visitors can visit Kensington Gardens and Craven Hill Gardens. Each offers a picturesque stopping point away from the bubbling city life.
A short walk will see guests arrive at Bond Street and Oxford Street which form part of London’s most renowned shopping district. Together with Regency Street, these two roads feature some of the largest stores in the UK and always prove popular with national and international tourists alike.
Restaurants, pubs, and bars are plenty in this part of town as well as the nearby West End. With a diverse range of meals served throughout the day and long in to the night you shouldn’t have a problem finding something to tickle your taste buds regardless of your preferences.
Whilst in the West End, or Theatreland as it is often referred to, be sure to catch one of the multitudes of plays, musicals, and shows on offer. You can stop off for food before or after the performance so there’ll be no need to feel in a rush.
Alternatively you can visit some spectacular landmarks (Nelson’s Column, Westminster Abbey, The London Eye) or one of the city’s bustling markets (Covent Garden, Camden Town, Greenwich), all of which are readily accessible from the Classic Hotel London.
