Centrally located Lancaster Gate hotel within easy reach of Paddington station
Just a few minutes walk from Hyde Park and Lancaster Gate, the Elysee Hotel London is an ideal destination for those looking to make the most of the city yet hoping for a peaceful nights sleep.
Just a few minutes from Paddington Railway Station, the 3-star establishment proves convenient for those arriving at Heathrow Airport as an express railway service connects the two in just 15 minutes. Other city entry points, including airports and railway stations, are well connected thanks to the London Underground railway.
Consisting of 55 guestrooms, all of which feature en-suite bathroom facilities, the hotel offers guests a comfortable stay. Additional extras provided include flat screen television with satellite channels, Wi-Fi access, air-conditioning, in-room safe, direct dial telephone, and tea and coffee making facilities.
Triple and quad rooms make the hotel suitable for families staying with children. As well as being stylishly decorated, rooms are service on a daily basis to ensure maximum comfort with minimal effort.
A small lounge bar provides guests with an opportunity to sit back and relax during the day or unwind in the evening. It also makes for a fine location to meet up with friends or colleagues before heading out into the city.
Whilst London may seem somewhat daunting in terms of its size, the Underground does a really good job of shrinking the city. As such, the Elysee Hotel London is easily within a comfortable distance of the majority of the landmarks and attractions tourists actively seek out.
Without venturing too far from the property, guests can visit the likes of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, two stunning green spaces, Oxford Street, the bubbling hub of shopping, or Madame Tussaurds, the world famous wax works museum. All of these can be reached on foot without breaking a sweat. Those that venture as far as Oxford Street and manage to survive the bag-wielding shoppers might want to head on a little further to the West End.
Home to a vast number of theatres and restaurants, the West End is Londons true centre. Here tourists and locals alike congregate to enjoy fine dining, excellent drinks, and a choice of plays and shows. From Shakespeare to The Lion King, Theatreland has a performance for everybody.
Slightly further afield, visitors can enjoy monuments and historic landmarks galore. From the Tower of London to Buckingham Palace, London has a vast number of famous attractions that most know from pictures or television. Up close and personal, these buildings are incredible to look at, even if youre not an architect.
London is the site of many intriguing and exciting events. Those staying at the Elysee Hotel London towards the end of August should definitely visit the Notting Hill Carnival. Just two stops on the underground from the hotel, Notting Hill becomes a splash of vibrant colours, outfits, and events. The largest West Indian carnival in Europe, the event is attended by thousands of well-wishers and enthused spectators. Events like this one are perfect examples of Londons multiculturalism, and really give the visitor a fine snapshot of the city.
