The Kensington Hotel
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
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
Stayed here for 2nights. The positives:- friendly staff and helpful, near Gloucester Road tube station. We were in basement room 1.2 single beds which were comfortable, but only one pillow each. Sheets clean. Towels clean fluffy. Stained blankets with someone's else's hair strands on! The room needs maintenance and painting. Windows single glazed sash. Which was onto road outside. Noisy! Venetian blinds closed and no way to open them so no natural light in room! (Like a prison cell)! Carpet dirty in corners and coming up. Bathroom floor tiles broken, shower handle missing on inside of shower, plug missing in sink, tap loose. The shower nice and hot. Breakfast basic but plentiful. Coffee very strong. We did ask to move when we arrived to a quieter room but told they were full.
Good service, nice staff. Had some problems when I arrived due to a mistake from my agency, the staff took care of it fast and effectively. Nice sized rooms for London. The beds were comfortable and the room clean.
Really enjoyed our stay in the Avni hotel. Staff were very friendly. Close to the tube. I would go back to this hotel again. I had two of my daughters with me and we were given a triple suite. I would recommend this hotel. Not expensive if you are in London to be out and about for sightseeing and sporting events.
I actually booked 2 rooms at the same time for my family of 4 so I was disappointed to learn upon arrival that our 2 rooms would be on separate floors instead. In addition I was further surprised to learn that there was no thermostat or air-con in the room to actually adjust the room's temperature, with only a standing fan provided for ventilation in the room. Nonetheless, the rooms, beds and toilets were clean and I particularly enjoyed the fragrance of the soaps provided. Reception staff were friendly as well and wifi connectivity was strong. For its price and central location in the South Kensington area, I would say that this hotel provides a decent and reasonable stay and I would recommend this to travellers looking for an inexpensive stay in the heart of London.
