Royal Garden Hotel
Travel Blogs from London
Arrived safely, but tired, in London about 4pm Friday afternoon. Early to bed in preparation for our first day in London.
We began the day with a nice walk in nearby Kensington Gardens which was full of activity with the finals of the World Triathlon in full flight. Lots of interruption to roads, traffic etc. Later as we went to …
So, this was day 2 in London. We rode on a lot of double decker buses today, and saw a lot of neat stuff.

Well guys, after we landed in a very busy airport in London England, we had a lot of stuff to do.
- We had to go to a very long line and show a nice guard our passports, to prove who we were.
- Then we had to get our suitcases. Normally, another country like England looks through your suitcase to make sure you didn't bring in …
Thursday and Friday, May 15th and 16th were (yet another) holiday in Madrid so I chose, once again, to take advantage of the 4 day weekend to go somewhere outside of Spain. On this trip, I decided to head to London. I couldn't believe that in my 36 years, I had never been to London before. I suppose I always thought it was the least exotic of the …
We arrived in London, England at 8:00pm local time. The flight over the pond was uneventful and we caught up on some much needed sleep. We figured out the train system immediately and hopped onto the Heathrow Express to Paddington Station, taxi to the Royal Garden Hotel, checked in by 10pm. The hotel was booked through Cheaprooms.com and while not …

Historical Traveler Reviews Royal Garden Hotel London
Just returned from 3 nights at the Royal Garden Hotel. When we registered we were upgraded to a room with a view, 645 on the 6th floor. Wow! what a dynamite view over Kensington Gardens. The bed was very comfortable as was the lovely sitting area where we enjoyed the views. Service at the hotel was excellent. Breakfast in the Park terrace was very good, but not special. The location of the hotel is great. You are near the underground, good shopping, the park and some excellent restaurants. Try Zaika for outstanding Indian food..it is right across the street. Maggie Jones is a block away with very good british food. Starbucks is also across the street as is Wegamama, an inexpensive noodle shop.
5 STAR HOTEL
We stayed in the Royal Garden in a deluxe room, 5th floor, 6/22-6/25, with a magnificent park view, great room, and excellent service. Truly a 5 star hotel.
We have just stayed in room 822 for 3 nights at the end of June paid good money but the room was tiny just 1 hair 1 small tv that was located in such a way that you had to lay at differing places in the bed to see it the bed was just a double 4ft 6 it was obviously a single room that had had a small double put in did complain told thats all we got 5 star Huuummmmm think not
Best Hotel in London
Because of its location (edge of Kensington Gardens) the view is INCREDIBLE! Get a room facing the park and you won't be sorry. 8th floor gives a particularly fine view. Rooms/food/servive is fine. I particularly disagree with the bad review given a couple of spaces below, this hotel is A1 (and I've stayed in many of the best hotels in London).
What a great hotel
What a grea\t hotel the staff are great the rooms are great and the views are second to none. Best hotel i have stayed in London.
In my opinion the Royal Garden is overpriced and overrated and seems to bathe in some kind of reflected glory of Britain past, if the displays and artifacts around the hotel are anything to go by.
A mixed bag
I stayed at this hotel for three nights. I found the hotel great in all respects - except one - the noise!
I am a deep sleeper but was woken every night by doors slamming and people talking in the hallway. Very annoying at 4am!
Worth Every Penny
I could not have been more pleased. My room was a tad larger than a U.S. mid-grade hotel, which is large by Eurpoean standards. The bathroom was a bit small, but that is always the case. The staff were superb in every way. I felt as if I was truly taken care of, from helping me get around the city to holding my bags before check-in. The restaurant, Tenth, was the BEST MEAL I HAVE EVER HAD. Really. Ever. And the service fantastic. My room was clean, and cleaned every day of our stay to perfection. Close to Notting Hill and Kensington shopping, and there is a stop for the touristy bus tour straight across the street.
Hyde Park was lovely, and right next door. I will definitely stay here if I am ever in London.
The trip to London was great and the hotel staff were very efficient and helpful at the Royal Garden Hotel. They were able to get tickets for shows, tell us how to use the bus system and everything worked out perfectly.
The service here is great, and from the moment you walk in you are treated like a star!! I even got a complimentary upgrade on my room! It is right on Kensignton High Street- so fab for shopping! The guest rooms are nicely decorated and of an average size, likewise are the bathrooms. Overall this is a great hotel and i would definitely return!
