About
Description
Traditional service and Victorian grandeur come together with sleek style and contemporary comfort at the Kensington, in one of London’s most cosmopolitan neighbourhoods. Embrace a sophisticated member’s club More vibe, whether over afternoon tea in the light, lively drawing rooms, cocktails in glamorous K Bar, or dinner in the refined Town House. From the splendour of The Brompton Suite to the contemporary charm of The Knightsbridge Suite, the hotel’s signature suites offer comfort and space, with The Kensington Suite offering one of London’s largest townhouse suite, with three bedrooms. Set in the heart of one of London’s most desirable neighbourhoods, The Kensington’s grand stucco façade is characteristic of this affluent 19th Century district, home to cultural treasures such as the Natural History and the Victoria & Albert Museums and the Royal Albert Hall, with the green spaces of Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park; and world-famous Harrods and Harvey Nichols only a short walk away.

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
