The Meininger Hotel London Hyde Park has an enviable position for a budget hostel/hotel, located as it is near to the exclusive district of Knightsbridge and within a stone's throw from the many museums to be found in South Kensington. The nearby Tube stations of Gloucester Road and South Kensington are both on the District, Circle and Piccadilly lines and hence offer easy access to the rest of the capital, but guests can just as easily walk to popular nearby attractions such as the Natural History Museum, Royal Albert Hall, Buckingham Palace and the beginnings of London's illustrious Theatreland. The wide green expanse of Hyde Park is literally at your feet when you step outside of the hotel, and the famous department stores of Harrods and Harvey Nichols are just around the corner - whether you're splurging or just window shopping!
There is WiFi throughout the hotel as well as public computer terminals and telephones, although the latter is subject to an additional charge. The Meininger Hotel London also has a large outdoor terrace with seating that is perfect for overlooking the city rooftops and having barbecues in fine weather, and there is a large lobby area with comfy sofas and armchairs. A free luggage storage room and safes are at guests' disposal, and tickets for local attractions can be bought from reception. Additionally, there is a public washer and dryer within the building.
Underground parking is available at the hotel at a cost of £25 per day, which is not unusual given the prime central location.
All guest rooms at the Meininger Hotel London share a fun and fresh aesthetic, with neat and colourful bed linen and bright pictures dotted on the walls contributing to their uplifting spirit. Room sizes range from a classic single or twin to multiple bed rooms and dormitories with the capacity to hold varying numbers of people, and every room comes with its own ensuite shower and WC as well as air conditioning and a television. Fresh bed linen and towels are provided.
The Meininger serves breakfast each morning, with meal times of 7am until 10am on Monday to Friday and 7.30am until 11am at weekends. Breakfast is subject to an additional fee and must be booked at reception. Lunch packages are available at £4 per person, and whilst the hotel does not have its own restaurant its central location ensures that you won't have to go far to find something to tickle your taste buds.
Unwind and make friends in the hotel's TV lounge, which comes complete with a PlayStation and karaoke nights to set you up for a night on the tiles!
