This week I headed to London for the Cosmopolitan blog awards, which if you want a little sneak peek at, you can watch my vlog here.
When planning my trip to London, I needed to find a convenient hotel close to Kensington Palace and something which was in a reasonable price range, which in London can be quite the feat.
I was planning my trip with Abigail, who was also up for an award, so when she said she’d already booked in, I decided to book into the same place too, so we’d have someone to travel to and from the event with.
Just a few minutes walk from both Bayswater and Queensway underground stations the Kensington Gardens Hotel is a stylish 17 bedroom boutique hotel conveniently placed in central London, near Hyde Park.
With beautiful period features, (check out that amazing hallway floor) you could tell each room had been lovingly put together. The bedrooms were cozy, clean and had lovely bathrooms and are perfect for a short stop to experience the sights of London.
The staff were friendly and really helpful and nothing was too much trouble. On trips out you can handily pass over your key into the Phoenix hotel next door, which also hosts a brilliant convenient breakfast, should you feel hungry the next morning.
For a 2 star hotel, Kensington Gardens offered everything I expected and a little bit more and is definitely a hidden gem. If all of this isn’t enough to sway you, bloggers, the marble and checkered tile steps and near by pillars offer the most amazing photography backdrops for that perfect outfit shot!
