Located on terribly cute Kensington Gardens Square, the two-star TOP Hotel Kensington Gardens, sports typical, chain-hotel-style rooms.
Pros: Cute, convenient neighborhood. Clean.
Cons: Small rooms. Can get noisy. No elevator.
The 17 small guest rooms at the TOP Hotel Kensington Gardens are quite anonymous, favoring rusts and tans at most turns: Duvets, for example, are patterned in just this color combination. Bed frames are faux-antique dark wood, and work desks are very Ethan Allen. Is it charming? Not particularly. Does it do the trick? Yes, and at rates that are reasonable for the neighborhood.
All rooms are equipped with coffee and tea facilities and a TV.
Thirteen rooms have private bathrooms, while four singles share facilities. The bathrooms are relatively good-sized, given the compact rooms. They are clean and tiled, some with bathtubs (ask ahead).
There is no elevator here, and the stairs are steep. On the indisputable plus side, the TOP Hotel enjoys a fabulous location in tony Bayswater, and is a four-minute walk from the Bayswater Tube station.
Breakfast is sometimes included in the room rate (ask ahead) and is served in a breakfast room next door to the hotel.
