Bra hotell nära tre tunnelbanor.

Posted 23-Jul-2016
Rent rum med ett snyggt badrum och utmärkt dusch. Trevlig personal. Dubbelsängen var skön att sova i, jag brukar vara känslig men sov mycket gott i sängen.

Aardig hotel, dicht bij metro en parken

Posted 16-Jul-2016
Pros: Gratis wifi, goed gelegen
Cons: Deuren moeten kamer goed afsluiten, betere matrassen, betere geluidsisolatie
Location: Metro en bus erg dichtbij, groene zone met 2 grote parken (Kensington en Hyde Park), Paddington Station op 10 minuten wandelen.
Aardig hotel, maar erg gehorige kamers (althans, die van mij, op de 8e verdieping). En er kwam licht vanaf de gang onder de deur de kamer binnen; dat slaapt niet fijn. Comfort bed is oke, maar geen 4-sterren waard. Gratis wifi is prima en snel, ontbijt is erg lekker en niet te duur, maar er zijn ook voldoende leuke ontbijttentjes in de buurt. Wat je maar liever doet. Bushalte voor de deur en station Queensway (tube) om de hoek, prima bereikbaar dus met OV. Hotel zit 'op' een tankstation. Had ik geen last van, maar zorgt wel voor wat meer verkeer. Tegenover hotel vind je Kensington Park en iets verderop Hyde Park. Je staat zo bij Buckingham Palace of op Piccadilly. Kan ook met de metro, maar lopen is ook goed te doen.

交通便利乾淨舒適的好飯店

Posted 12-Jul-2016
Pros: 交通非常方便 環境安全
樓下是超市 對於沒有選擇飯店早餐的客人來說 非常便利 房間狀況很好 也有浴缸 唯一美中不足的地方是電梯很小 此外交通很便利 附近有兩個地鐵站可以選擇(步行5分鐘內) 公車站也在飯店門口 要去白金漢宮 或是攝政街都可以直接抵達

Good for a short stay

Posted 07-Jul-2016
Pros: Location. Room clean and comfortable.
Cons: I waited at reception for some time while two receptionists attended to the couple in front. The third receptionist ignored me.
Location: Conveniently located near Queensway tube station and opposite Kensington Gardens (which is next door to Hyde Park).
We had a standard double room at the rear of the hotel on the third floor. The room was fine for an overnight stay, but I would think it a bit snug for much longer. Although the ensuite was small, the shower was large and powerful. We slept well! We took advantage of the breakfast deal, paying £12 pp for a full breakfast. Fairly wide choice of cold and cooked options for vegetarians. A member of staff brought a jug of soya milk on request.

Great location, shame about the room

Posted 06-Jul-2016
Lovely location right on the park and 5 mins from tube. We had a family room that was clean, but was too small for 3 adults. Mattresses too hard, one pillow each, tv in mono? Couldn't get wifi in the room for the whole stay. Got room service order wrong, air con wouldn't get cool enough and the window hardly opened. Staff were lovely but overall, wouldn't recommend or return. Expect better from a four star hotel.

Nice Hotel with decent staff

Posted 26-Jun-2016
Good location hotel. Good access to public transport, restaurants, shops, Hyde park, and so on. When we checked in we were informed that we had been upgraded from Double Deluxe to Executive room. And I thank them that indeed we were upgraded to a room which had a little more space and was therefore called an Executive room. Though calling it an Executive room is not what I have experienced in other London hotels of what is called an "Executive" room. The room itself, as a large Double room was good, very clean, comfortable bed, good towels provided, free wifi, the bathroom was very small and functional, the TV was not working (we did complain but nothing could be done as it was after service hours). I would recommend this hotel, would happily use this hotel again, provided it is at the price I paid via Expedia. The service at reception, to the room and at breakfast was excellent. I found all the staff very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was very good.

Reines Übernachtungshotel für kurze Aufenthalte

Posted 19-Jun-2016
Pros: Das Servicepersonal und die Lage sind einfach unbezahlbar
Cons: Für ein Hotel in dieser Sternenkategorie ist der Zustand eine Schande
Vorweg das Positive: Das Hotel ist sowohl mit Bus als auch U-Bahn sehr gut zu erreichen und die Lage ist exzellent um in die ganze Stadt zu kommen. Das Servicepersonal der Reinigung (gründlich), der Bar und des Frühstücksbüffet (nicht im Hotel einnehmen! Gleich um die Ecke wird man mit "English Breakfast" ab aktuell 5£ mehr als satt) sind sehr zuvorkommend und freundlich. Leider hört es hier dann aber auf. Die Empfangsdame an der Rezeption (im ersten Stockwerk) war bereits der erste sehr negative Eindruck des Hotels. In keiner Weise darum bemüht unsere Reservierung zu bearbeiten! Auf Nachfragen reagierte sie sehr unprofessionell und vermittelte (eventuell unbewusst) ihre Unterforderung. Das Hotel hat seine beste Zeit leider schon hinter sich(z.b. Linke Wand an Zimmer 709) und das Hotel ist sehr hellhörig. Die Duschwand war nicht mehr dicht, so das Wasser an den Seiten auslief.

Super beliggenhed!

Posted 19-Jun-2016
Pros: Beliggenheden og udsigten
Location: Super placering - især i forhold til Oxford St.
Thistle Kensington Gardens ligger ikke i verdens mest charmerende bygning, men til gengæld er det et rigtig godt hotel! Fantastisk beliggenhed med udsigt til Hyde Park, masser af transportmuligheder, gode værelser, søde og hjælpsomme ansatte, rent og pænt og god morgenmad ( som dog desværre ikke var med i prisen).
