We have been staying at the old Kensington Close Hotel for a number of years. It has now become a Holiday Inn. Although a lot of the old infrastructure has been modernised, there are still some areas that need to be updated, however the new management are now sorting it out. I must praise the staff who are always very helpful and attentive. Particularly I recall the Manager Ali and both Roxanna and Andrea from Romania, not forgetting Gianluca, just to mention a few.I would fully recommend the location of the hotel because it is in a good position near to shops, restaurants and good transport links .
This is a very classy hotel with bellhops, an extensive lounging area, a bar and Starbucks are all laid out in front of you as you walk through the doors. The staff are friendly and helpful and the room was very nice. We had everything remade for us each day and the room service was fabulous! We stayed for 10 days and made use of both the spa and the pool/sauna area. We had a full english breakfast buffet available to us for free each day and it was always hot and fresh. We were able to walk less than a block to get to the metro or to go shopping or eat out or view historical sites. Overall, it was an elegant experience and I look forward to returning to this hotel on my next trip to London.
Mostly very good indeed.However, I could see programs on the TV guide I wanted to watch but the channel selection is limited, WHY?Lovely hot swimming pool and spa for an extra charge of 10 pound/day (very disappointing). Extra charges always sour the experience.Ten pound for a 20 min swim? REALLY?But the Starbucks barista was good and the staff were nice.The room was cramped but adequate.
Great location, only 3 minutes walk from High Street Kensington. It was my second stay at the hotel. it seems that the bedrooms got even better since my last visit about 12 months ago. My room was very clean and comfortable. I met my friend in the bar, staff was very helpful and polite.
This hotel was absolutely terrible, the rooms were tiny. The bathroom had a bad smell especially when we opened any taps. Our tv didn't work as well as our hotel phone the entire stay. We were told someone would come to fix it but no one came . There was no bottle water provided in the rooms. Luckily we were only booked there for two nights, couldn't wait to leave any sooner.
