First off it's fair to say that at around £125 per night the overall (room cost) isn't too bad for London, however the standard rooms are a little dated and very small. Reception staff and porters/concierge were very friendly and give a nice welcome. Breakfast choice was ok, though again not at the level you experience in many other Hiltons... More

Very small, you could hear the next door room, the hotel needs a complete overhaul, hotel is not at all as described. Staff was good. The breakfast was not very good either, I go to London often but would not think about staying here again! I made staff aware of my concern the night before I checked out and they... More

We spent the weekend doing all things Christmas and based ourselves at the Hilton. Very large hotel with underground parking. Very easy to find. Appears to have all that you need. The rooms were very well equipt. The bar area was very relaxing and the staff more than friendly. Everyone was helpful and only too wiling to be of assistance.... More

Stayed here for a family celebration in London, the location of this hotel within 5 mins walk to Shepherds Bush Train & Underground station makes it ideal for visiting central London. The check in process was smooth and although we were told that check in was from 3pm, we were checked in by 2.30pm. All the hotel staff we encountered... More

We've stayed in a lot of hotels and consider ourselves quite easy going guests. All we ask for is a comfy bed, a bit of peace and quiet at night and coffee/tea making facilities.... the 1 star I've given this hotel is for the fact we had tea and coffee. Check in involved queuing for about 20 minutes, we were... More

Hotel staff, location and hospitality second to none. Cameron White and his staff were a credit to the organisation. The whole experience was excellent from breakfast through to bedtime. Location amenable to all London via the underground

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of November. Service and hotel was excellent. The rooms could do with being updated. Carpets worn etc. I would stay again, breakfast was great and rooms clean. Bed wasn't the best but the I struggle to sleep in any hotel.

I never generally expect much of a Hilton or any of the other big brand hotels. The rooms are all fairly standard, the foods alright, and they are generally just not that exciting. However... After the conference I was attending opened up the hospitality session and various delegates along with myself began a series of drinking games, there was every... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hilton London Kensington is located close to a lot of London event venues and some great shopping too. Only about a 7-minute walk from Holland Park underground station and one of the main central tube lines, Hilton London Kensington is surrounded by places to eat, drink, shop, and watch bands. There is always comedy or music at the Hammersmith Apollo - a simple walk away, or sporting events at Wembley stadium - a short train ride away. And with the modern, well-stocked Westfield shopping center located just across the road, when you stay at Hilton London Kensington you can shop all day. Whatever you chose to do in your spare time, the hotel itself is bright and airy. All the rooms have an LCD flat screen TV and a mini bar. If you don’t want a night in, relaxing in your comfortable room and don’t want to venture too far either; choose to dine in the romantic West Eleven restaurant after making the most of the 24-hour gym and the relaxing sauna and steam room. Staying at the Hilton London Kensington is about making the most out of your time in London. ... more   less
