Hotel Vicinity:Nearest: Tube Station: Queensway 123 yards (112 metres), Railway Station: London Paddington 0.6 miles (1 km), Motorway: M4 Junction 1 4.2 miles (6.8 km). There are 4 tube (underground) stations within half a mile (0.8 km). The local area surrounding the Grand Royale London Hyde Park Hotel is known as Bayswater and the stand out plus of this location is its just 100 yards from the wonderful Hyde Park. Offering 350 acres of wide open spaces, play areas, numerous impressive statues, a central lake with boat hire, landscaped themed garden areas and several places to eat and snack. The park adjoins Kensington Gardens and this is where the Princess Diana memorial is located. At the south west corner of Kensington Gardens is Kensington Palace which is where Diana lived for her Royal years. The area has a lot more going for it than just the park though with a great selection of shops, bars and restaurants especially along Queensway and further along at Notting Hill. Many places will consider this location as being with central London though in truth its just on the border. This means accommodation is cheaper than the most central areas while having great transport links to all of London. Paddington Station is only half a mile and is the start/end point for the Heathrow Express service to Heathrow Airport. Always worth a visit is Portobello Road Market which specialises in antiques and is half a mile from Grand Royale Hyde Park. There are ten tube stations within 1 mile and bus routes run along Bayswater Road a minutes walk from the hotel. All in all this area is very popular with tourists looking to be close to the heart of London but with generally lower rates and good amenities locally.
