Queensway hotels in Bayswater are heavily biased towards the budget end of the market but this doesn't make it an unattractive place to stay in. There are some notable exceptions like the Hilton Hyde Park and Thistle Kensington Gardens. Most are small independent hotels housed in long terraces of houses, often with 5 or 6 floors and a basement.
Bayswater as a hotel area is more aimed at the leisure travellers so its hotels in London tend to be cheaper during midweek than at the weekend. While you can find a few chain hotels in the area, nearly all of the cheap hotels in Bayswater are independent. Take a look at our Bayswater area guide for detailed information.
Bayswater hotels can be found on the northern border of Hyde Park in London, and this area is renowned as a great district to seek cheap budget 2 or 3-star grade hotels in a central London location.
Most visitors use Bayswater and Queensway as a staging post to set out to explore from rather than explore within. However, there are some attractions in the area. In Kensington Gardens is Kensington Palace, home of the late Princess Diana.
Portobello Road market is within a 5-min walk which hosts markets every day although weekends are when it really comes alive. In late August, Notting Hill Carnival takes place in this area, Europe's biggest carnival.
Hyde Park that seamlessly joins Kensington Gardens is a Royal Park and a wonderful green space to relax, walk, run, horse ride and explore.
