Located in the heart of South Kensington, guests will enjoy wonderful scenery such as the surrounding Victorian architecture and tree-lined streets. Local attractions and places of interest include Earl's Court and Olympia Exhibition Centres, Hyde Park and Kensington Palace and Gardens, all of which are within walking distance. The nearest tube station, Gloucester Road, is actually visible from the hotel and just a two minute walk away. It is serviced by the Circle line, District line and Piccadilly line, which provide convenient access to the rest of the city.
Featured in the hotel's facilities are the recently renovated gym and conference and meeting rooms. The bar and lounge area are a great place to relax with an afternoon drink, or to meet up with fellow guests in the evening and the concierge staff can assist guests with suggestions of things to do or shows to see as well as organising dry cleaning and laundry services.
All 88 rooms at the Rydges Kensington Plaza Hotel feature the basic amenities of Rydges Dream beds, power showers, WiFi and complimentary toiletries, providing guests with all the necessary comforts during their stay. Additional amenities for some of the larger rooms include irons and ironing boards, an in-room safe and a minibar. Guests can also request extra rollaway beds, towels and bedding, wake-up calls and housekeeping if they so desire.
The Ten Tables restaurant serves a daily breakfast and dinner. In the evening the menu features modern European dishes, which compliment the traditional surroundings and furnishings. The pub-styled Polo Bar serves a selection of English pub food in a similarly suited atmosphere, allowing guests the opportunity to to witness a real English dining experience.
Guests arriving into one of the city's airports will find taxis waiting to bring them into the city centre. Alternatively the Heathrow Express takes just 15 minutes and calls in at Paddington, whilst the Gatwick Express takes 30 and runs to Victoria. Again, there will be taxi services available at these stations, but guests will find the hotel simply by taking the Circle line (which departs from both stations) to Gloucester Road. When leaving the tube station turn left and the hotel is just the other side of the crossroads. Guests arriving by car should head for Hyde Park, central London and follow the A315 along the south of the park. At the south west corner guests should turn off onto the B325 Palace Gate, which leads on to Gloucester Road.
