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...

Stayed 3 nights in March in a twin room & were lucky enough to get an upgrade - beautiful room with a view over the park. Have always found staff good but this time exceptional - we arrived early but the room was ready - asked for directions to Temple Place & were provided with 2 options - we took...

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...

Stayed here on the Saturday 25th February in room 129. The hotel is within 5 minutes walk from the tube. We arrived early in the morning but as there was a clean room available the receptionist kindly checked us in early. The room was very spacious and clean. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. We enjoyed our stay that...

I stayed there for a night with my family. I must say that the staff are exceptionally good and polite. This is the best this hotel has to offer. Otherwise given the price that I paid I am surprised how is this hotel still running. The hotel looked old and tired. I understand that it's an old building and the...

We stayed at The Thistle Hyde Park. Excellent location, good value for money. Large spacious room with old fashion deep bath, large windows. Just opposite Hyde Park and close to all the nice restaurants in Bayswater or shopping on Oxford Street.

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
