We slept until 10:30 AM London time today. Doesn't sound too of the ordinary...however, we went to bed at 12 midnight the night before, so you do the math. Nonetheless, we planned on making it to Buckingham Palace and then to see the Westminster Abbey. We walked to Buckingham from our place (approximately 2.5 miles) and took a few photos. A few …
We made our way to Tower Hill by way of the District line around 1:30 PM today. We seen the London tower, Traitors Gate & Deadman's hole; also seen the spectacular London Bridge all on the river Thames. Tracy and I blended in with the rest of the travelers and took turns snapping photos of complete strangers that spoke different languages. I …
We had a 9:30 PM flight on a A330 Sky Bus out of MSP International airport last night and we made it over the pond in approximately 8 hours. Tracy mapped out out the route from Heathrow to our hotel, which lead us through the Piccadilly Tube line without any troubles. Currently we are staying at the Parkcity in Kensington; a quaint yet bustling …
No prizes for guessing that the London that greeted us was miserable, overcast and drizzling but nothing was going to dampen our spirits. Met our driver, Dave who took us through the morning traffic with ease and deposited us at The Park City Hotel in Lexham Gardens, Kensington which is a quaint and rather cute are having given us the cab window …
Ah, finally we arrived in London. It was good to be back in a city that we have both visited and loved dearly. We had a bit of trouble buying our Underground tickets, but finally got on our way and quickly realized that we had way overpacked for this trip. We tried to do things fairly economically, especially considering the exchange rate, and …

Historical Traveler Reviews The Parkcity London
My partner and I just returned from the Park City after a 2 night stay. The hotel is in easy walking distance of at least 3 tube stations and the nearby restaurants and bars at Earls Court. The breakfast was exceptional and included a lovely continential buffet including fresh fruit, cheese, meats and pastries plus freshly cooked english breakfast served at your table ( which makes a refreshing change from the usual 'hot' buffets in many of the larger 4 star chain hotels). Food is reasonably priced for London, however the wine list seems expensive in comparsion. The view of the garden at night from our bedroom window was fab especially watching the squirrels and twinkling fairy lights. All in all a lovely hotel in a good location with extremely friendly staff. Would stay again and recommend to family and friends.
Stayed at the Parkcity for 1 night, and am so sorry it wasnt for longer! We were going to a concert at the Albert Hall, and it was about a fifteen minute walk away (five if you take a cab). The hotel is just a short walk from the nearest tube station, making it very easy to get around central London. The staff were discreet, friendly and efficient. Had two adjoining rooms as we had our older children with us, and both rooms were spotless. The bathrooms were beautiful. Breakfast was superb and service was great. I am booking to go back with just my husband soon, and could not recommend this place highly enough. Gorgeous, a real gem!
This is a superb hotel with fantastic staff. From the Bose CD radios to the wonderful breakfasts, it's all of the highest quality. We loved the area, there are some really characterful, elegant streets around the nearby Earls Court tube stop, with plenty of good restaurants. Seek out the official site for photos - theparkcity dot com. Why they are still posting those old pics on here I don't know - they bear no relation to the cool elegance of the real thing.
We just returned from a weekend at The Parkcity hotel, and I would recommend it stongly. The hotel has just opened, it's located in a quiet street close to subway (6 min.) and bus number 74 (2 min.) takes you straight to the city center in 10 minutes. A big supermarket is located at only 100 metres from the hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful, rooms are spotlessly clean and with a modern style interior and good bed. The standard room has a mini-bar, lcd flatscreen TV, Bose radio and cd-player, safe, and a very nice spacious bathroom with bathtub/shower and fluffy towels. The breakfast was fantastic with everything you need from a choice of good rolls, fresh mango and other fruits, danish pastry, and even delicious Parma ham! We found a deal on internet for only 88 pounds a night with breakfast included. I think a very good offer for a beautiful 4 star hotel on a good location.
We were really impressed with the Parkcity hotel. It's fairly new so everything is still fresh and beautiful. The public areas in particular are very classy, much more welcoming than the picture on their website suggests, and a lovely smell pervades the whole hotel. The staff were all extrememly pleasant and helpful.
My Girlfriend and I stayed at the ParkCity for a late valentines stay and were more than impressed with this recently opened hotel.
My new London base! I'll be booking into here whenever I come to London from now on. The reviews on Trip advisor persuaded me to give it a try and I'm so glad I did.
Just returned from a three night stay - Jan 13th arrival/Jan 16th departure. The location was just off Cromwell Road within a 6 minute walk to the tube and an easy walk to the Natural History Museum, Harrods, Kensington Palace, etc.
An Excellent Hotel - Great Professional Staff
This is one of the best hotels that I have ever stayed in whilst in London.
I think the hotel is newly opened but there was none of the teething troubles sometimes encountered at other newly opened hotels. Indeed a lot of well established hotels could learn from it.
The staff are so professional and helpful (a real rarity for a London hotel) and nothing was too much trouble for them. The room was high quality and very peaceful so that I enjoyed a very good nights sleep. I ate in the restaurant which again I would highly recommend.
I would definitely return to this hotel again.
Everything about our stay was great. The service was second to none. I arrived on my own with our 3 week old baby and the reception, portering, front of house etc staff were so helpful. The room was great, breakfast fab and I could not complain about a thing. My husband had to leave v early but it was not a problem for him to settle the account and for me to stay later. We could not have been made to feel more welcome - fantastic all round. We certainly will be going back.
