Nice hotel literally opposite Hyde park… Perfectly nice for somewhere to sleep after a day strolling round Notting Hill or shopping in the West End… Cheeky to ask £25 to park on Saturday when the yellow line outside the hotel is free..!

I loved the Thistle on Hyde Park. The location was good with the train station a short walk and buses at the door step. It is not too far from the central part of town. Plenty of Restaurants nearby in Queens Way, Bayswater. As for the hotel, you need to consider the age, therefor the rooms may not be massive,... More

Stayed in this hotel and had a great experience. Got a free upgrade with a very nice view to the Hyde Park (thanks!). The room was big (for London standards), clean and well equipped. The breakfast over there is not worth it in case your rates do not include it. The staff is nice and helpful. Location is perfect, right... More

Our three nights at this hotel were very enjoyable, The deluxe double room was very clean and comfortable, breakfast was excellent as was the service. Its position at Hyde Park allowed us to walk to most of London's major attractions.

This Thistle Hyde Park is located at Lancaster Gate, directly across Bayswater Road from the Hyde Park entrance. The hotel had personalized and helpful service; I was specifically pleased to be able to check into my room at 11:30am after my overnight Trans-Atlantic flight. Even though I booked a “single room”, the room was huge and featured two twin beds... More

I've stayed at this hotel on quite a few occasions. It's in a very nice location, opposite Hyde Park. It's much smaller and cosier than many of the hotels in the area, and he rooms are very nice. It's old fashioned, but that is its charm.

Spent three nights at Thistle Hyde Park. My choice was mainly its location to Hyde Park and very close to two underground Central line (red) stations. I choose the 37 m2 but I guess it is much smaller than that, maybe they are counting the balcony that you can't get access to. Victorian age building nicely looked after however it... More

We stayed here for three nights following a bus tour. The staff were very helpful and friendly, room was great and location was terrific. We like to walk so being opposite Kensington Gardens/Hyde Park we were able to walk through parkland as far or as little as we liked. Metro station is close if you need it and popular bar... More
