Royal Garden Hotel is right beside Kensington Gardens, just a short walk from the museums on Exhibition Road and 20 minutes' walk from Harrods. High Street Kensington Underground station is five minutes' walk away.

You can take afternoon tea in the Park Terrace Restaurant, which holds two AA Rosettes. 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. Order in advance as there is a 45-minute wait.

After a day's sightseeing or shopping, you can slip into the darkly handsome Bertie's Bar for late-afternoon coffees or evening cocktails. There is also a gym with fitness equipment and a health club.

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

Queen Rooms are 21 square metres and have views of Kensington High Street and the Royal Household Mews.

The breakfasts: huge choice of breakfast items, including a new gluten free area. Plus, the staff are so pleasant & attentive e.g. my friend developed a tickly cough whilst we were sitting in the bar. A member of staff spontaneously brought over a glass of water for her.

The staff was extremely friendly throughout our stay. The location was perfect for us. Also, we had a wonderful view of Kensington Palace right outside our room.

The Royal Garden Hotel is conveniently located next to Kensington Palace. It's only a few blocks from the High Street Kensington metro station. There are shops and restaurants close to the hotel. Also, it's nice having the Kingsington Gardens next to the hotel if you want to go for a run or take a stroll. The staff was extremely friendly throughout our stay. They showed us to our room after we checked in. We were fortunate to have a room on the top floor with a beautiful view overlooking Kensington Palace. The staff also checked on the status of the metro system during our stay, even though we didn't proactively request this. Our room was clean and nice with a king bed, a small seating area with two chairs, and a spacious bathroom with both a large tub and a walk-in shower. The room had robes, slippers, and tea service, which included an electric tea kettle and teas, coffee, and hot chocolate. The bed was on the firmer side. The pillows were flatter, but there were several in the room if you wan't to double-up. The room also included a switch where you can illuminate a light in the hallway to let the cleaning staff know if you want privacy or if you want your room serviced. Our package included the full English breakfast, which included an assortment of foods including eggs cooked to your liking, different varieties of sausage and bacon, pastries, yogurt, fresh fruit, cheeses, cereals, toast, beverages, etc. We had an early check-out on our departure day so we could catch our flight. We called room service the evening before and they prepared a boxed breakfast which was available at the front desk when we departed. It was complimentary since breakfast was part of our package. We used the metro system to travel from the airport to our hotel, as well as throughout our stay in London. We bought a metro card and placed 30 pounds on the card, which was enough for our four day stay. From the airport, we used the Piccadilly line, got off at the South Kensington station and switched to the Circle line, which then took us to the High Street Kensington station. This took about 40 minutes or so. The hotel is then about a short 5-minute walk from the High Street Kensington station. Please be aware that if you use the metro system to travel to and from the airport, you will likely need to carry your bags up a few flight of stairs in the metro stations. Overall, we had a wonderful stay at this hotel, and it was a great value for the price we paid. We would definitely stay here again.
