This was a very nice hotel. The rooms were quite small and the lighting could be better but the overall experience was quite nice. I liked the common areas more than the rooms. Staff was great, beds comfy. Breakfast was included and was very good.

This was our 5th trip to London, and I wanted a Kensington hotel, specifically one within easy walking distance to the South Kensington Underground station (which serves the District and Circle lines, and the Piccadilly lines, which together get you pretty much everywhere you need to go). The Kensington Hotel is a 5-minute walk to the station, along a street lined with restaurants. The Hotel also is about a 10-minute walk from the Natural History Museum, the Victoria & Albert Museum, and the Brompton Oratory (if you want to attend Mass). The Hotel is an elegant accommodation, with exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. Our room was small but very comfortable. The bathroom was somewhat tight, particularly the shower, but, again sufficient. (The low water pressure and soft water made rinsing clean a challenge, but this is a problem not unique to this London hotel.) The Hotel restaurant has excellent food. Any wine on the list can be ordered by the glass (for 25% of the bottle price). The bar is very nicely appointed, with the best bourbon selection I found on our 12-day trip to England. Definitely recommend this hotel.

We stayed at the Kensington last week for four nights and were delighted by it all-around. It is perfected situated with charming and plentiful restaurants and shops abounding. It is a quick walk to the Metro stop and onward toward Knightsbridge area. The V & A are very nearby, too.
The hotel staff was consistently kind, gracious and helpful in every way. It was very busy but this did not deter from the peaceful ambience nor the service. The common areas are attractively British with many cozy spots to take tea, cocktails or a meal. The rooms were well furnished, very comfortable, quiet and had excellent bedding and lighting. Likewise,the bathrooms, while small, were very well equipped and had excellent showers. There was a decided generosity to the whole establishment. I would definitely recommend and return myself.

This is like what Doyle Hotels used to be like. You can see the influence if you look carefully at their attention to detail. The staff are very friendly , helpful and courteous. I have no hesitation in recommending the hotel.

Lovely hotel near South Kensington tube station. Room was small but well appointed, staff was great and the common sitting and dining areas on the 1st floor were charming, comfortable & very British! Food was very good too.

Stayed: September 2018
