Referred to by regulars as 'The Senator', Shaftesbury Premier London Hyde Park is a 4 star hotel and treasured member of The Shaftesbury Collection, a chain of popular and successful hotels based in London. The 119 rooms reflect their 4 star status in the sheer amount of class and style that emanates from the modern furnishings, luxurious fabrics and breezy colours. For those who would like a little bit of privacy during their stay, the Duplex Rooms are equipped with a kitchenette and romantic mood lighting.
The hotel is located in the pricelessly convenient area of Paddington, not a three minute walk from the Paddington railway and underground stations. National Rail services run from here throughout the rest of the country, whilst the underground station is serviced by the Circle, District, Bakerloo and Hammersmith & City Lines, meaning that guests can easily get to wherever they want to go, whether inside of London or outside. Hyde Park is just a 10 minute walk to the south with Kensington Palace and Gardens a short stroll beyond. Within the greater area is the West End, Buckingham Palace, Covent Garden and the City of Westminster, though anything further afield is easily accessible through the city's many transport links.
Guests can either explore the area's surrounding dining options or sample the catering on-site at the hotel's elegantly designed Eclipse Bar and Restaurant, which serves drinks and meals throughout the day.

Guests arriving through either of the city's major airports need to make their way to the city centre. From Gatwick Airport this can involve taking the Gatwick Express to Victoria, and from Heathrow Airport the Heathrow Express to Victoria. Guests who come through Victoria can then take the Circle Line to Paddington. Anyone arriving from other gateways to the city should also make their way to Paddington. Once at Paddington guests should exit and walk south along Praed Street where they can turn right onto Westbourne Terrace.
For guests arriving by car, the most direct route through London involves approaching from the west. Guests should leave the M25 at Junction 16, taking the M40 and subsequently the A40 into central London. Guests should then follow the road for about 16 miles and, once on the A40 Westway, make a right onto Westbourne Terrace. The hotel is roughly half way along the road.
