Nice boutique hotel in lovely neighborhood

Although a little tattered around the edges (needs fresh paint and perhaps some new carpeting), the overall experience suited me quite well. The rooms are very large, even by United States standards. The hotel is on a quiet, lovely street with a Sainsbury's around the corner (handy for groceries, wine, sundries, a Starbuck's). The nearest tube station is Gloucester Street, which is roughly 4 blocks away and totally convenient. There is also a post office down the street, which I found useful. Breakfast is complimentary and just fine - convenient and enough (good coffee). I would stay here again, but I wouldn't quite call this a four-star hotel. I'd say it's a solid 3-star, but perfectly adequate and comfortable for my 5-night, solo, tourisn visit. Note, I am very, very particular about hotels, so I gave it only 3 stars but based on high standards. I'd recommend to friends based on location and size of the rooms. Enjoy and good luck!

A perfect hotel, highly recommendable

We spent 7 nights at the Parkcity Hotel, London and were amazed by the high standard, good location, friendly staff, cleanliness and the perfect continental breakfast. The room was great too, quiet, spacy, and very clean.(great mattresses!) Considering the moderate rate, we got a great value and will certainly return on our next trip to London.

European hotel

Having booked through an online discounter, we got a room right beside the elevator, even though the hotel was not very full. Room was very small, good location with easy access to 2 underground stations. Room was very hot, and the advertised "room airconditioning" (which we included in our room search) would not go on. This made sleaping difficult. Cleanliness was good. Included continental breakfast, including the breakfast area, was very good.

another great stay at the parkcity

This was our 3rd stay at the ParkCity and things were still great. Our room rate included breakfast which we'd never taken advantage of previously. The breakfast was a nice continental breakfast and gets you filled up and ready to explore the city or head off to work. The hotel now has wireless but only in the lobby although if you stay on the 1st floor you may be able to pick it up in your room (we were able to which was nice)

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Hotel will arrange a car to pick you up from or take you to the airport for the same price or cheaper (our driver quoted 40 pounds) than taking the Heathrow Express and a cab from Paddington station.

London vacation - glorious

We went to London to see shows, see a Manilow concert at the O2 and visit some sites. The hotel was central, nicely appointed and on a quiet street in Kensington. I would suggest it to friends and family as a getaway but not necessarily for business. There is no wireless except in the lobby and that is the only negative that I can report. The breakfasts were great and the location was close to the tube.

Highly Recommend the ParkCity

Hotel was top notch. Decor was fresh and modern with every attention to detail. The amenities in the room were top notch. I loved the rain shower head and the bed/linens were outanding. The custom welcome greeting on the tv after signing in was a very nice touch. Enjoyed morning breakfast and delivered paper. The bar/lounge was very nice as well. Service from every single person was superb. Location was great. A short walk to the tube or bus.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Get the oyster card for travel on the underground. You save lots of money over buying individual tickets. Take the picadilly line from Heathrow and get off at Earls Court stop and it is a short walk or cab to hotel.

Very nice, with a couple rough spots

If you want a very nice hotel in a great residential neighborhood, this is a good choice. The rooms are very modern and nicely appointed. Good linens. You have to decide if a very upscale residential neighborhood a 10 minute walk from Kensington High St (with the famous Whole Foods, as well as the usual British suspects) works for you, as opposed to something located more central to historic locations. The staff was very accommodating albeit overworked at times. Good desk, TV (new but maybe only 27"). Wired internet worked well for 10 pounds a day, but given an attractive room rate, my total value was good. Overall, quite quiet, but my first room was just outside a fire door that banged on each of the frequent occasions the housekeeper went through it. They were very nice about changing my room, and though the central heat on that one was out, they offered an a la cart space heater for no extra charge.
