So so

Beautiful entrance/lobby. It's a typical tourist class hotel in a spectacular location. The room is small but efficient. Breakfast was included in our stay & the offering was substantial. My reason for the 2-star rating is the bathroom was full of mold. Ceiling, shower, everywhere. This is usually indicative of poor management which makes me nervous about cleanliness elsewhere. I'm not a germaphobe but we have a 4 year old son and I don't want him getting sick.

Fabulous Hyde Park Hotel

My 2 daughters and granddaughter stayed at Thistle Kensington Gardens in March2017. Our rooms were spacious, nicely decorated, a very nice breakfast buffet, good food after an exhausting day of sight seeng, great staff to guide us through London, close to the Tube, Hyde Park is so lovely with Kensington Palace close by. It was a perfect place for us to enjoy a quick visit to London!!

A good place to stay

We stayed overnight and found everything was well organised from arrival to departure. All the staff were friendly and extremely helpful. The room was nice and clean although if you are staying longer than one night you may be wise to book a larger room (we were in a standard double).There was a nice selection of food available in the brasserie at breakfast and during the day. The hotel is near Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens and is in a quiet street away from the hustle and bustle.
