This was our second stay at the Thistle Hyde Park and wanted to return this year on an anniversary trip. To welcome us and celebrate our anniversary, the staff had placed fresh flowers, box of truffles and a decoration of a heart out of two towels with rose petals in our room. What a beautiful special gesture. The hotel staff...

My wife and I recently travelled to London for a 4 night stay in this wonderful city. Some 6 months back we were checking for locations of hotels in London and their packages. Although we have stayed in some wonderful hotels in London on our past visits, we like to try different locations. We came across the Thistle Hyde Park...

Ideally located opposite Hyde Park, its one for walking enthusiasts. Tube only minutes away, with bus stop outside hotel. Friendly and efficient staff made the stay all the more memorable. Hotel reminds me of a B & B in the heart of London. Stayed for 15 nights and enjoyed it immensely.

My friend and I stayed at The Thistle Hyde Park last weekend. What a lovely clean hotel. We were upgraded when we arrived which was a lovely gesture and our room was spacious and light.

I stayed at this hotel due to the Thistle brand which I had previous good experiences with, but I must say that this hotel was a let down. The exterior of the property is impressive and gave an opulent feeling. The reception are was small but is showing signs of wear and tear. Check-in was slow due to system issues...

At the suggestion of a friend, my son and I spent four nights at the Thistle Hyde Park. Room rates seemed reasonable, and the location was excellent as we like to walk and thought it would be nice to be near Hyde Park. Lancaster Gate Underground station is closed until summer, but Marble Arch and Queensway are both nearby. Easy...

The Thistle Hyde Park is on Bayswater Road facing Kensington Gardens and a few hundred feet from the Thistle Kensington Gardens. This smaller hotel is in a series of 19c terrace buildings directly across from the gardens. The ground floor of the hotel, up a half flight of stairs, is decorated pleasantly in the style of the period. The foyer...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Thistle Hyde Park dates from Victorian times, with a cosy, relaxed atmosphere reminiscent of a Pall Mall private-member's club. A refined, intimate building, it is a comfortable base from which to enjoy the nearby West End, Oxford Street and Mayfair. Within walking distance of Lancaster Gate and Bayswater Underground stations and a literal stone's throw from multiple bus stops, you'll find it easy to get from the hotel to wherever it is you wish to visit in central London. What's more, you have the luxury of two of London's finest public parks just across the road from the hotel entrance - perfect for a morning stroll, weekend picnic, or letting the kids run off all the excitement of a holiday in the City. ... more   less
