Hyde Park is located immediately west of Park Lane in Central London. It is bounded by Bayswater to the north and Kensington to the south and covers in excess of 350 acres.
Hotels near Hyde Park London
London Hotels on the northern side of Hyde Park are in the Bayswater and Paddington districts whilst the southern boundary is mostly Kensington. To the east you have the upmarket hotels of Park Lane and Mayfair with Marble Arch at the top north eastern corner.
In very general terms, hotel prices are highest in Kensington and Mayfair whilst the lowest prices are in Paddington. Bayswater hotels are somewhat in the middle of these price differences.
When selecting your Hyde Park hotel you must bear in mind that transport from any of these areas is fast and efficient and is not really a main deciding factor. Local amenities can be important and the area to the south of the park, Kensington, wins hands down.
If price is the main factor then best to look at Paddington or Bayswater areas which are generally £15-£20 per night lower than Kensington and £60+ pounds per night cheaper than Mayfair.
