Fairly good place to stay, great location.
Get rid of the cushions on the bed. They are old and not hygienic. The service was good and we were happy with the location, easy to get to the attractions. The bathroom needs a ventilation fan.

A nice hotel in a convenient location
I had a total of 9 nights at the Thistle Kensington Gardens over two stays and enjoyed my time there. I upgraded to the executive suite on check in on my first visit (having booked a standard double) on the promise of a bigger room and better experience. The view from my room on floor 9 was awesome over Kensington Gardens and across to the Royal Albert Theatre with The Shard and the London Eye visible in the distance. The room had a king sized bed and a work space but did still feel a bit small even though this is common in European hotels. The bathroom was absolutely tiny - no room to set out makeup or hair stuff...this was all done at the desk! I didn't use the brasserie or have the breakfast included but used room service a couple of times and this was a good experience. No fridge in the room was a bit disappointing. I had two days away (and the hotel helpfully held onto my big suitcase for me so I could fly carry-on only...awesome - thanks!!!) and when I came back I went to my reserved Deluxe Double room. This was far too small so went straight back to upgrade to the Executive suite again...this time on floor 3 so view not great but a better sized room so worth the extra cost. The hotel is conveniently located close to two tube stations - Queensway for the Central line and Bayswater for the Circle and District line. I was able to organise a late checkout to better fit in with my late flight which was awesome but the process was not as easy as it could have been!

Good choice.
Hotel exactly as the pictures showed which is always a good start. My room had a pleasant view of Kensington gardens. The convienance store downstairs was very handy. Stayed here for four nights and the room was spacious enough to spread out a bit. Mattresses could do with an update - they were ok but not great. Bathroom came with good amenities and th room had a kettle. No bar fridge. A professional hotel and staff whilst still informal. Great hotel in a good location. Choice of three tube lines within 200mtrs(5min walk). Good value. Highly recommend and would definitely return to this hotel. Really enjoyed my stay.
