Staying in London is an expensive and hit and miss affair. The staff, decor and food at the Kensington Hotel all conspire to make your stay as good as it can be. Yes, my room was tiny but this is London and everything I needed was provided from an enormous flat screen TV and a very comfortable bed was there - except a desk. I've never really understoon the turn down service principle but it was good to get 2 Lily O'Brien sweets and the waether forcast at the end of a long day. Breakfast offered a wide and delicious choice. Service was pleasant and efficient. Concierge and reception staff were equally well trained - nothing was too much. The decor is lovely - very special - a real historic feel while being very comfortable.
