The Norfolk Towers' location offers some of the best transport links in London and is in close proximity to Paddington Station and Marble Arch. You are also very well placed for local attractions. In less than ten minutes you can walk to Hyde Park for a spot of fresh air, a horse ride or an invigorating jaunt on the Serpentine Lake's soar-powered shuttle boat. You can also feed your cultural side with a visit to The Serpentine Gallery for some modern art, or Lisson Gallery and The Frontline Club in Paddington for some fine painting and photography exhibitions. You can find excellent targets for some full-on retail therapy in Oxford Street, where Selfridges Department Store is located alongside 300 plus boutiques, and Queensway where you will find the Whiteley's shopping complex. You can soak up some London history at Kensington Palace and Gardens and then enjoy an evening in the austere surroundings of the Royal Albert Hall.
For affordable room rates, a friendly atmosphere and a truly superb location, the Norfolk Towers Hotel is an excellent choice for travellers, especially if you have to watch your budget. As with many hotels in the area, the town house conversion means that room size can be erratic and imaginative, so if you want to aim for a larger room request one which isn't on the very top floor, where the attic quarters give way to charming but frustrating sloping roofs. Executive rooms on the ground floor are very well appointed and may be the best selection.
