Exceptional 10.0
South Kensington is a great area to stay in London. Close to the museums and tube stations with lots of great bistros and cafes, not that you would not want to eat at the hotel. Really enjoyed their breakfasts and dinners. Great food, great service. Very friendly staff who actually care to take care of you. Fabulous .....will be there again.

Well worth the price in every way
Fantastic stay for 6 nights. The location is amazing ... great restaurants right around the corner. Friendly and helpful staff. Walking distance to the tube, Kensington Gardens, museums, etc. etc. Highly recommend it.

Exceptional 10.0
Perfect!
There aren’t enough superlatives to describe our stay. The service was amazing; they went above and beyond for my many requests! The rooms were beautiful and clean. All the staff made you feel so welcome, and were always eager and ready to please. The breakfast was very good, cocktails and afternoon tea were perfect. We’ve definitely found our hotel in London!

Everything was great. The hot water was bit inconsistent (sometimes hot sometimes not too hot). Very great area.

Exceptional 10.0
Great stay at Kensington Hotel for Holiday Week
Family of four stayed 2/27 - 1/3 enjoyed the city of London. Hotel was quiet for the most part (doors to hallway not very sound proof). Staff was very courteous and helpful. Great location, easy walk to nearby restaurants, pubs and underground station. Only problem was we were told by waitstaff that breakfast was included and when we went to check out were billed for the meals.
