My family and I just had a lovely stay this past week at the Royal Garden Hotel.
The staff was fantastic! Polite and accommodating, everyone was just so pleasant.
Our room was very comfortable for my wife and two young sons, who were spoiled upon arrival to the hotel with a gift each from the staff.
The location was perfect. Just a short walk away you'll find many little eateries and restaurants to eat at, a Whole Foods, many retail shops, and the High Street Kensington Underground station, which allows for easy access to anywhere in the city. Right behind the hotel is Kesington Palace and Park, which was just beautiful to stroll through.
All in all, a great experience that I'd recommend to anyone.

This has to be one of the nicest (if not the nicest) serviced apartment hotels I've ever been in. The apartment is huge with amazingly comfortable beds. The living rooms also has a nice balcony that look over the garden, really enjoyable to have your coffee there in the morning. The hotel is also located in a very nice area, close to Knightsbridge, with restaurants, shopping, and museums all within walking distance.
As much as I loved the apartment and the neighborhood, I am not giving this place 5 stars. Check-in for this apartment is at 3:00pm, however our flight was to arrive at 11am so I contacted the hotel asking them if it would be possible to check-in early. They said it wont be possible, so I said fair enough, we'll be there at three. Unfortunately when we went to check-in at 3pm, our room wasn't ready. They kept us waiting in he lobby for an hour, and then told us that it seems like it will take longer. After cleaning the apartment they realized that there was a leak in the kitchen. So they told us we either wait more or check-in into the apartment while someone worked on fixing it. So we checked in and had the plumber work in there for 2hrs while we were in there.
Keep in mind we just had a 7hr flight with a 2yr old kid who was restless and in need of being cleaned up. It was very upsetting. But you know those things happen, however, I atleast expected a manager to come by and apologize for this inconvenience. I only wish the hotel management were more considerate

We had a wonderful stay at the Park International. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff there. They were courteous and helpful throughout our stay. We had a small room on the ground floor at the end of a corridor. This was a great room as no one walked passed it and so was completely quiet all the time. We even had breakfast included because I think the room wasn't considered to be one of the best. We loved room 066. Nothing bad to say about this hotel, I would use it again.

This was a decent hotel in a convenient area. It was easy to get to and from the hotel from here. My room overlooked a park, so I had a wonderful view. The room itself was comfortable enough, although I noticed there was no air conditioning. It wasn't hot while I was there, so it was enough to open the window, but I'm guessing that the room would get very hot and stuffy in the summer. The hotel provided a kettle, coffee, tea, shampoo, and soap. They also changed the towels each day, which I like. The one thing that I didn't like about my room was the bathroom. The door pushed into the teeny tiny bathroom, which made it very difficult to do anything at the sink with the door open. It was too hot to close the door after showering, but drying my hair with the door open was difficult. I kept banging into the door handle. This would probably be an issue for any adult over, say, 130 pounds. The hair dryer is attached to the wall, so it was impossible to bring it out and do it in the room itself. This problem could easily be solved by bringing your own hairdryer if you use one.
