Thistle Kensington Park
Quiet comfort at affordable prices in De Vere Gardens in the heart of Kensington.
This well-appointed Thistle hotel is located in peaceful De Vere Gardens, near the Earls Court exhibition center and just a few minutes away from Harrods and the West End. Facilities here include full concierge service and 24-hour reception/room service. The 353 sizable en suite rooms are in some need of refurbishment, but most are acceptable enough. They come decorated in a modern mélange of muted colors and prints --- floral, plaid, tweed and folksy, and all have the expected tech gadgets such as high-speed Internet access, satellite TV, tea/coffee facilities, direct dial telephones, mini-bars, fridges and trouser presses. The on-site restaurant, Eaglescairne, offers good Continental meals, and you'll be at no loss for places to eat and drink around the neighborhood if you're looking for something a bit less traditional.
