Our hotel offers style, convenience and character for all. Adjoining a quiet and charming Central London garden square, The Nadler Kensington is situated in an ideal location within only a few minutes walk from either Earls Court or Gloucester Road underground stations. When exiting Earls Court tube station, follow signs for Earls Court Road.
There are six local bus routes that take you to South Kensington, Chelsea, Fulham, Putney, Notting Hill, Shepherd's Bush, Richmond and Clapham. For Knightsbridge and central London, take the South Kensington buses.
Many of London's main tourist attractions such as the Royal Albert Hall, Hyde Park, Earl's Court, Olympia, Natural History Museum, Victoria & Albert Museum, Science Museum, Kensington Palace, and Kensington Palace Gardens with the famous Peter Pan statue, are all within walking distance or a short bus or tube ride away from our Kensington hotel.
The hotel is also a 5 minute walk from the The Medical Chambers Kensington at 10 Knaresborough Place - a private medical out-patient facility offering consultations & treatments with a wide range of specialists.
Pink Bikini, Juicy Orange and Violet Secret will all be there. Not dodgy cocktails or strippers with fancy stage names, but the human and environment-friendly paints you’ll be using to smother your mates! Expect an intensely colourful day of music, dance, performance art and getting gloriously messy.

A weekend-long feast of cycling sport and leisure that sees an eight mile loop of roads around central London closed to regular traffic so that bike-enthusiasts can get a clear run at it.
The Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle takes place on 9th August (9h00 – 16h00) and enables cyclists of all ages and abilities to take a safe spin around town. It costs nothing to join in, but register in advance at www.prudentialridelondon.co.uk/freecycle.
Later the same day (at 17h00) there will be a Grand Prix event around St James’s Park with races for young Olympic hopefuls and professional female cyclists.
On Sunday 10th August the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 will send 24,000 amateur cyclists on a 100-mile route similar to that of the London 2012 Olympics' cycling races. Many participants are raising money for charity, so help to make their final metres along Pall Mall feel even more victorious by cheering them on.
The world's top 150 male cyclists will also be having a go in the Prudential RideLondon-SurreyClassic, so you can cheer them on too!
