Reviews of our hotel near the Natural History Museum
“The hotel is ideally placed - just across the road from Hyde Park. Within walking distance of the V&A, Natural History and Science Museums and not far to Knightsbridge and Oxford Street.
Some nice pubs nearby - we like the Mitre just a couple of minutes walk away. Near Lancaster Gate tube and bus routes along Bayswater Road.” by davidb5555 on TripAdvisor
“We stayed here for 2 nights and I thought it to be very good, paying a little extra for the exec room (viceroy room) on the 9th floor was well worth it. Taxis out front, buses and tube very close by - loved walking in Hyde Park and Kensington gardens - just across the road. You can easily walk (30mins) to Harrods, Kensington Palace, Royal Albert Hall and the museums (V&A, Natural History and Science).“ by c_anne2013 on TripAdvisor
