The Kensington Hotel
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Stayed for one night and we were treated with pleasant proficient staff upon arrival. the hotel itself is a short stroll from the tube station and was clean and welcoming. The room I had was on the second floor with a view over the front street with its own shower room and again was clean and has everything I required for an overnight stay. Even though I faced the street I had an interrupted nights sleep as the road was very quiet.Breakfast was served in the breakfast room in the basement and other than probably requiring a cold storage facility for yogurts and juice etc it was of a basic affair consisting of cereals, fruit, yogurts, bread, cheese, meat and tomatoes.I would definitely stay again as good value for money.
We stayed here for two nights. The hotel is in a great location close to the tube and cafes, restaurants and shops. It was a great base for exploring London. The place was super clean and the staff were very friendly. We will be back.
Accommodation was selected by colleagues attending the same evening event hence despite the reviews it made sense for me to stay at the same location, which I did with some trepidation given the reviews I had seen.......yes the curtains do not draw properly, yes there is a nasty stain on the bathroom ceiling and yes having had to ring for further directions I found the male receptionist less than helpful! Given previous travellers claims (all of which I experienced myself) there was no way was stripping back the bed sheets to check the mattress!However, given the location; the price paid; basic but adequate breakfast, the room was clean (let down by overall maintenance) and I would stay again.
We do not rate this Hotel at all. The room was very small. Were told it was a big room. No air conditioning. It was very hot & had to leave the window open all the time as too hot without window being open. Breakfast was budget, & so was the dining room. TV in room sticking out & bruised my shoulder a beauty as no room walking past it. The good part was. Yes!!! it was lovely clean & very comfortable beds. Plus it wasn't far to the underground. Quiet location. Just disappointed after being around the world staying in nicer Hotels.
We stayed here for a trip to the proms at the Royal Albert Hall, we've been to other hotels in the area previously and found this to be the best so far in terms of value. The staff were very helpful, everywhere was clean, there were lots of places to eat and the Albert Hall was a twenty minute gentle walk. We had an air conditioner in our room, which was spacious and continental breakfast was included in the price. The only downside was no parking, but I got a meter space about 50 yards down the street which was good for the evening of our arrival, and although I had to move the car at 0830 the next morning I had no trouble finding another parking space. WiFi was fine
