By taxi, it's 30 minutes from Heathrow Airport in good traffic. Alternatively it's a 45-minute Tube journey to High Street Kensington, five minutes' walk from the hotel. London's West End is 10 minutes away by taxi or a 20-minute underground journey on the Piccadilly Line. Underground parking is available nearby and discounted rates are available for hotel guests booking in advance.

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The hotel is right beside Kensington Gardens, just a short walk from Harrods department store and the museums on Exhibition Road. High Street Kensington Underground station is five minutes' walk away.

You can enjoy afternoon tea in the Park Terrace. However, the real shining star is the 3-AA-Rosette Min Jiang restaurant on the 10th floor, where those in the know dig into the signature wood-fired Beijing duck (Tatler calls it "utterly refined"). Order in advance to avoid a 45-minute wait.

After a day's sightseeing or shopping, slip into the darkly handsome Bertie's Bar for a late-afternoon coffee or evening cocktails served by "well-drilled staff" (The Michelin Guide). There’s also a gym with fitness equipment, a sauna, a steam room and a health club.

The bedrooms have large picture windows, many with views of Kensington Garden and cosy window seats. Triple-glazed windows ensure a quiet night's sleep in spite of the bustling street below.

We've also negotiated a 3-course à la carte dinner for two for £62.

From the press:

  • "There are many notable Chinese restaurants in London, but none with such a picture-perfect vista… [&] the cooking is not overshadowed by the view" -- Time Out

  • "The hotel has become a discreet haven for a regular stream of famous visitors as diverse as Michael Jackson, President Putin & the England rugby team" -- The Caterer

Restaurant staff did not understand their OWN special offer. Burnt scraped toast at breakfast. Noise from nearby road - poor double glazing. Required to sign chit at breakfast even though breakfast included in reservation - have never known this. Why!!!. Certainly not luxury 5 star.
