Nearby to bus and tube links. Tube directly to and from Heathrow. Have used this hotel before as single female traveller and it feels safe with a good neighbourhood. Handy for museums and a selection of dining choices

Everything is perfect about this hotel--the staff are so warm and friendly and helpful, and the location is perfect--if you like walking, so many attractions are accessible by foot. Otherwise, there are a number of tube stations only a very short walk away. The rooms are so clean and comfortable, and quiet, and each comes with a little kitchenette. Also, there are lots of great bars, cafes, supermarkets, parks etc nearby--and lovely nightly wine evenings in the sitting room. The Resident Kensington is my new go-to London accommodation--truly excellent value in a terribly expensive city.

Dear vastvc, Thank you for the lovely review following your stay with us. We are indeed located in a beautiful quiet area, away from the city noise, but with great access to central London via tube and buses. I'm glad to see you explored the area and enjoyed all it has to offer. Thank you for mentioning the kitchenette in the room as well. It is very convenient having a Nespresso coffee in your room or prepare a quick snack without having to pop out every time. Once again, thank you for your lovely feedback and for the great scores on the service provided by the team. Kind Regards, Maria Sulka - Hotel Manager

The hotel is located within easy walking of Kensington High Street with an abundance of bars and restaurants. The area is fascinating to wander around, super properties and architecture. Rooms are excellent, kitchenette is a bonus. The staff are exceptional. We arrived early to drop off bags before a lunch reservation, briefly mentioning we were celebrating my daughters 40th birthday. On our return the bags were in the room together with a birthday banner, complimentary wine and balloons, such a wonderful personal touch, nothing was to much trouble for them. A lovely base to enjoy a weekend in the capital. Thank you for making my now middle aged daughter very happy, Dee

We always stay at The Resident Kensington when we visit London, after discovering it some years ago. The staff is extremely accommodating, the rooms relatively roomy and clean, and it is close to the Earl's Court tube station. Each room comes with a very convenient kitchenette. Its location in Kensington is close to the Palace and museums, and getting elsewhere is a breeze with both the District and Piccadilly Lines running through Earl's Court. Eateries are numerous, and a large grocery store is a few blocks away. We highly recommend it and we will return.

A very well done to the whole team for being "extremely accommodating".

We simply need the food grocery list and we do the shopping for you. Very convenient! We look forward to welcome you again. Kind regards, Edgardo Cruz Reception Manager

I cannot speak highly enough about our stay at Resident Kensington. Great location close to Earl's Court Tube making sightseeing, shopping, going to the theater and dining experiences easy and convenient. We especially enjoyed the charm and quiet atmosphere of the neighborhood. The hotel and rooms were very clean and attended to every day. As a tea drinker, I loved the electric teapot in the kitchenette. The social hour each evening was a nice touch to mingle with other guests and the staff. The Staff ~ we cannot speak highly enough about these amazing individuals!! They welcomed us graciously; helped us arrange tours, theater tickets, the Eurostar train to Paris and hotel there, served us wine and chips at social hour and the list goes on. Thank you for an amazing 15 days!! We highly recommend this hotel to others and will stay here again if in London. We have joined the rewards plan. Carl and Jean Anne, Indianapolis, Indiana. USA
