Nice location, a five minute walk to Hyde Park. 4 star facilities. Beautiful, bright rooms with large windows.
Situated in a quiet location, Kensington Close hotel is in the heart of Kensington, convenient to the prestigious shops of High Street, and only a five-minute walk to the tube. Close to Royal Albert Hall and Kensington Palace, it is an ideal choice for leisure and business guests. The Health Spa is a superb luxury health and fitness club available to guests which includes an 18-metre heated swimming pool, beauty treatments and gym.

I regularly stay here and have done for several years. When it changed to Holiday Inn I thought "yes they're bound to do something about the limited T.V channels". Wrong! Nothing has changed and it's still the same limited channels with no menu to see what's on and what's coming on. We don't all want to go out to see the sites, some of us want to relax in our rooms and watch a bit of telly. Please look at implementing some more freeview channels. Everything else you do is good so come on please improve the T.V availability.

Great bar service

Just killing some time in London and had an incredible bar experience with a new bartender named Maria from Italy. Very friendly with superb service. She has made this trip COMPLETELY worth it!!!! A must see!!!

Great location, nice clean room

Great location for a weekend in London, minutes from Kensington Palace Gardens. Some communal areas (stairways and hallways) are a bit tired and grubby. However, the rooms are lovely and clean and modern. Comfortable bed and sheets. Good iron and ironing board. The bar area is very nice, perfect for a drink before or after dinner. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Parking not unreasonable (£35 for 24 hours). Shame about the wi-fi which was so poor we could not watch a movie on our iPad. Luckily they had a good sized TV in the room. Breakfast was good in terms of selection, however the hot food buffet was luke-warm at best. Good selection of fruit.Overall an ideal hotel for a weekend in London. We would definitely stay again.
