Space Apart Hotel’s unique location ensures guests enjoy unrivalled access to some of London’s choicest landmarks.

The immediate area around Space Apart Hotel is dominated by the 350 acres of Hyde Park. From its origins as a royal hunting ground to the present day this urban oasis has always drawn Londoners and visitors to its green fields, lakes and horse riding trails. Today it is fast becoming famous for its spectacular music events with global acts holding concerts there.

For those with more reserved tastes, there is the adjacent Kensington Gardens which is home to various members of the royal family some of the world’s richest individuals. The parkland around here is more refined and manicured and is ideal for that post lunch Sunday stroll.


For those on a short stay in London, the local neighbourhoods of Bayswater and Notting Hill offer many attractions in their own differing ways. Bayswater is vibrantly cosmopolitan and this is reflected in the wide range of cuisines on offer in the restaurants. Arab, Greek and Brazilian eateries are all mouth-watering considerations when walking down Queensway. Notting Hill is more fashionable and funky as it basks in the influence of Portobello market and the art galleries of Kensington Church Road.

The main retail thoroughfares of the West End and Knightsbridge will be hard to ignore from Space Apart Hotel. The flagship stores of Harrods, Selfridges and Harvey Nichols may take up half a day each of your time! After that it may be wise to unwind and watch a show in the area of the West End dubbed “Theatreland”.
