Located on Bayswater Road with the tranquillity of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens opposite, and within walking distance to Paddington, Oxford Street, Kensington, Notting Hill and Edgware Road, Thistle Kensington Gardens is ideally placed for business or leisure.
Good transport links ensure that the city and theatres are also within very easy reach. Plus as there isn't a shortage of things to do, with London's bustling West End just a short cab, bus or tube ride away, or a 15 minute walk, making this hotel the perfect location.
Not many hotels in London can boast royal neighbours, but this one can. The house next door is Kensington Palace, former out-of-town retreat of William III, birthplace of Queen Victoria and, more recently, home of Diana, Princess of Wales.
The gardens from which the hotel takes its name were the pet project of Queen Anne. And from many of the bedrooms you'll enjoy superb views over her magnificent creation.
So, whether you're staying for business, a well-earned break or a big occasion, travelling light or with the whole family in tow, the Thistle Kensington Gardens is great for a relaxing and comfortable stay.
