Negative Reviews

Minimalist menu may leave you wanting more

The hotel restaurant, while convenient, doesn’t offer a particularly diverse selection Guest looking for more variety need only step outside and find themselves surrounded by London’s many dining options.

Some guests of Thistle Kensington Gardens have had problems adjusting the temperature or experienced malfunctions with the heating/air conditioning unit One call to the amiable staff should be able to clear that up.

No such thing as free parking
