Astor Hyde Park is located in South Kensington. Kensington Gardens which is the former home of Princess Diana is just minutes away. Other interesting places in the area include the Natural History Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Science Museum. You can hop on the Tube and be on Oxford Streets in just a few minutes as well as the theatres in West-End London, Harrods and if you fancy doing a bit of shopping and eating out, High Street Kensington is the place to go.

Recently renovated, you will enjoy modern living in a traditional English accommodation. The wonderful wooden staircase and panelling maintains the Victorian style character. Our 33 guestrooms are decorated with modern designs and are comfortably spacious. All rooms are en-suite and for extra security, key card access is available as well as security cameras around the building as we believe that security is extremely important.
