We had a lovely room, were allowed to check in just before noon, and enjoyed the same pleasant service. The location is great ... in a quiet area close...

We were quite early but the lovely lady on reception let us check in early which was a nice surprise. The room was small, but we hadn't come to stay in a hotel room, we had come to...

Pro: -Great location, literally right across across a roundabout from the Shepard's Bush underground station; and across the street from the #94 bus stop; within walking distance of Notting Hill -the single room I had was more than adequate and not too small, pleasantly decorated though modern in design, so if you want a more traditional, elegant decor, this would...

The place is a dump. Staff even apologise for the age of the rooms. If you think this place is nice you've been staying in some pretty dire hotels. Hilton are now just a poor mans Travelodge, but not as nice.

Just had a fabulous stay at this hotel. We booked an Executive Double Room with lounge access. We requested early check in between 2 and 3 pm which went smoothly. We also requested a quiet room which we also were given. Our room was lovely with a huge bed which was soooo comfortable. The bathroom was a little dated but...

I've stayed at this hotel on many occasions over the years. The staff are excellent & very well trained, helpful & friendly. The food in the bar, in the executive lounge & room service is good quality & good selection. But on our latest visit the hotel is a little run down & in need of a refit. The carpets...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hilton London Kensington is located close to a lot of London event venues and some great shopping too. Only about a 7-minute walk from Holland Park underground station and one of the main central tube lines, Hilton London Kensington is surrounded by places to eat, drink, shop, and watch bands. There is always comedy or music at the Hammersmith Apollo - a simple walk away, or sporting events at Wembley stadium - a short train ride away. And with the modern, well-stocked Westfield shopping center located just across the road, when you stay at Hilton London Kensington you can shop all day. Whatever you chose to do in your spare time, the hotel itself is bright and airy. All the rooms have an LCD flat screen TV and a mini bar. If you don’t want a night in, relaxing in your comfortable room and don’t want to venture too far either; choose to dine in the romantic West Eleven restaurant after making the most of the 24-hour gym and the relaxing sauna and steam room. Staying at the Hilton London Kensington is about making the most out of your time in London. ... more   less
