About Kensington Gardens Hotel, London

Affordable hotel near Kensington Palace

A royal affair
Smoke-free TOP Kensington Gardens Hotel places you only 5 minutes from the royal expanse of Kensington Palace, which has been home to many an English monarch. Royal Albert Hall is also within easy walking distance.

London's leafy borough
There are plenty of open spaces to escape to when the city overwhelms. Holland Park is less than a 10-minute walk, as is Princess Diana Memorial Playground. If retail is more your thing, Whiteleys is a close neighbor. Guests love the range of shops and kid-friendly entertainment. Hyde Park is also 5 minutes away.

Traditional feel
The Victorian exterior of TOP Kensington Gardens is in perfect sync with the rest of the borough. The interior also continues this classic feel. Laundry and ironing services are available, and WiFi is free in public areas.

No-frills, great location
Each room provides guests with a desk, satellite TV, telephone, and tea and coffeemakers. Space is optimized in single rooms, which share toilets with other rooms. Other classes of rooms offer en-suite bathrooms. Free toiletries and cribs are available.
