We had absolutely no problem. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable, the underground stop is very close and easily attainable by walking. The staff is very professional and well mannered. Everything you may need is available around.

A great hotel on a quiet tree lined street ... Very close to the underground station, and maybe just over a mile walk to the delights of Notting Hill and Portobello Road. The buffet Breakfast was terrific ... Lots to choose from - proper orange juice too! Lots of computers in the lobby, with free wifi, but what made the... More

This hotel is out of the way - down the road from Notting Hill. It is on a bus route so it is not horrible but takes time to get to the parts of London where all the excitement is. There is nothing around. The restaurants are at least 2 or 3 blocks away and not open late. So, after... More

The hotel was located about 5 minutes walk from Sheperd's Bush tube stop. It is next to Westfield mall which if you like shopping, you would be in paradise. However, the hotel itself was dated. The check-in staff were friendly. We signed up for executive lounge access which was 30 pounds per night, it provided breakfast, tea time snack and... More

Before complimenting the room, I want to take issue with the hotel's name. It can only be called the Kensington on a technicality IMHO. It is located in Holland Park, way outside Kensington itself, and barely 100 metres inside the boundary of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. It is right next to Shepherds Bush, but in truth that's... More

Negatives: Room size is extremely tiny and if you plan to spend time watching TV in your room, well the telecast is not clear.. especially in days when you have LED/LCD TV's everywhere.. the huge TV with a bad reception is a shock..

I stayed here for 4 nights with a friend in a twin room- it was tiny! Could not even open our suitcases fully without putting them on the beds. Bathrooms felt grimy and the whole place could do with a makeover. Staff were unpleasant and made you feel as though they were doing you a favour just to do their... More

We noted her name as she was exceptional, Christina, at the reception of Hilton Kensington was fantastic. Greeted us with a smile and made effort to make us feel very welcome. Beyond checking us in (which was smooth) Christina also offered local knowledge before we left to explore the area. The pleasant welcoming experience resonated throughout the rest of our... More

I stayed at Hilton Kensington some years ago and it was an awful experience. My recent booking was an error - I'd forgotten about the previous visit. So my expectations weren't high at all upon arrival, and my stay was a very pleasant surprise. My room was pleasant, overlooking Holland Park Avenue, yet not noisy. Amenities all good - standard...

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
