Bayswater is one of London's most competitively priced hotel areas with a definitive tendency towards the leisure visitor seeking value for money. This does not mean that you cannot find a good selection of luxury hotels in the Bayswater area though.
The Hotels near London Hyde Park & Kensington Gardens (London's largest park) cover a large area of London. South and East of the park are the exclusive hotel areas of Park Lane and Knightsbridge.

As with all luxury hotels you can expect a great service and facilities in a good location, close to transport links to the rest of London. These luxury hotels are often located within historic buildings and some overlook directly onto Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens.
The flagship luxury 4-,5-star hotel in Bayswater is The Hilton Hyde Park Hotel situated next to Queensway Underground and overlooking Kensington Gardens/Hyde Park. The Hilton Hyde Park is at the beginning of Queensway, the main shopping street. At the other end is Whiteleys Shopping Centre. It is noticeable that there are few global chain hotels in the Bayswater area.
Located on the outskirts of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, Bayswater luxury hotels offer cheaper room rates than the close by Park Lane and Knightsbridge. The area has excellent transport links and is close to Paddington Station which is the best route into London for travellers using Heathrow.
Room rates at all the full-service luxury hotels in Bayswater are very competitive. It is an area geared to the leisure traveller rather than business traveller, so rates do reflect this. Prices are cheaper mid-week than at weekends, but it is an area where bargains can be found. You can expect to pay on average around £150 per night for a double room - some with leisure facilities such as a pool, included.
Bayswater luxury hotels are competitively priced with a range of 4-5-star hotels in a good location. You can stay in luxury cheaper during the week than at weekends.
We also recommend considering Paddington as a good alternative to Bayswater for luxury hotels, particularly if you are using Paddington Station as your arrival point in London.
