Location is good, service is bad

Posted 19-May-2014
Pros: Location is right in front of hop-on/off bus tour stop and within walking distance to two tube stations
Cons: Please improve your room service. Hotels (especially in tourist-heavy places like London) should offer 24-hr functioning kitchen for room service.
Location: Location is right in front of hop-on/off bus tour stop and within walking distance to two tube stations. Its also right in front of Kensington Gardens
I picked this hotel because I read some really good reviews. I booked for two nights. After the first night, I was wondering why there were so many good reviews... After a whole day of exploring London, I was extremely tired and ordered room service around 11pm because I was told that room service was "24 hours". However, when I tried ordering a main course, I was told that the "24 hour room service" was only for sandwiches. That's it! Sandwiches! Very disappointing. So technically, they really don't have a 24-hr functioning kitchen. The only saving grace of this hotel is its location because it was right in front of the hop-on/off bus tour and within walking distance to two tube stations which are Queensway and Bayswater.

Pros: Location to two different tube lines and view of Kensington Gardens across the road.
Cons: The room and bathroom quite small. Lift is very small so try and stay on first or second floor to walk up and down stairs which is easy.
Location: Convenient and great view
Facilities: Rooms and lift are small; Value: Affordable; Service: Go the extra mile; Cleanliness: Pleasant; I think the staff, the location, the view of the gardens and having supermarkets and eateries outweighs size of rooms and of lift.

Great surprise hidden inside!

The hotel was located in a great location - close to several great places to eat and shopping. Hotel staff were friendly and accommodating. Room was clean, however small - but sufficed just fine. Breakfast was good - the buffet had many choices. I would definitely consider booking there again!

Thistle Kensington Gardens

Nous sommes arrivés à l'hôtel, nous avons pu admirer un très joli hall d'accueil. La suite dans les chambres a été moins agréable. Pas de chauffage dans une des 2 chambres (le 28 décembre...), pas de sèche cheveux, une salle de bain pas très propre.
