We booked a last minute room on the morning of our stay, and so got a very reasonable price because of being a late booking (£60 for double room). Checked in at 88, before heading across the road to 83 to our room (104) - it's a very busy road so take care dodging traffic! Room was very small, but...

Stayed here last weekend, it's off Kensington High Street, it is clean, wooden floor, clean kitchenette, comfy bed, it's out of central London but 2 mins walk away from no 9 bus stop which takes you through to the Aldwych so you can get off at Trafalgar Square etc, depending on traffic 25 mins into central tourist areas, good value...

We arrived very early (10.00) on the understanding we could check our bags into a luggage room as check in wasn't until 2pm. The receptionist was extremely helpful and allowed us to check into our room. The room itself was of a very good standard and spotless. The room was on the ground floor with constant traffic outside however it...

I booked the Kensington Studios via Late Rooms the day before I needed to be in London for an Interview.

The price I paid was excellent for the facilities on hand ( was £79 per...

When I arrived to the hotel I was told that I had to pay a deposit for any damages that may occur. I was not aware of this and the lady on reception said it was an agreement between 'me and her' and refused to give me a receipt and assured me that I will receive the amount back on...

The Kensington studio is a very good option when visiting London, the only point that could be better is the Internet, where the signal is not so much strong, but there location, cleaning, accommodation and staff are very nice.

I stayed here with my mum for one night on 13th December. When we arrived there had been a mix up and the twin room that we had booked had been given to someone else, while we had been allocated a double room. This would not have been so much of a problem, except that the twin room was actually...

I was very anxious about this establishment as the rental was so affordable. I was delightfully surprised when I arrived. As many of the reviews indicated - this is an excellent, spacious, clean, warm place to stay. I was in London for business and the studio was perfect. While there is no easy chair in the room, the comfort level...
