The hotel is very nice and 2 minutes walking to metro station. About 15 minutes walking to Horrods and Hyde Park. The hotel location is very central. Quite a few restaurants are near the hotel, which provide you comprehensive dinner-out choices.

The location of the Hotel was ideal close to two tube stations and the exterior of the building is so elegant. We were greeted from the taxi by friendly helpful staff and that continued throughout our stay with every member of staff we engaged with. The receptionist was so pleasant and made you feel welcome from the start. When we passed any staff member be it in the corridors or lifts they would always be so professional and friendly. It was very refreshing. As for the Hotel itself well the downstairs areas are delightful with fires glowing and a kind of grandeur yet maintaining a warm homely feeling. Great for a relaxing drink and a fruit drink menu was an option also. The bar with its chandeliers had a lovely ambience and we had lunch an evening meal and breakfast all of which were very enjoyable and very professionally managed.
The room was on the small side but very clean and the bed very comfortable but as the downstairs is so inviting there is no need to spend too much time in the room here. We had a Nespresso coffee machine in the room and the room was attended to before we returned for the night with fresh supply of milk and biscuits, chocolates and fresh towels.
We would definitely love to stay here again we felt cared for and relaxed when we left. Thank you to the lovely people that make this Hotel home from home.

Room Tip: On the second floor it was very quiet, there were a few stairs to manage as the corridor dropped to our room.

Good start for a relaxed weekend in London, everything decorated for christmas to get the right vibe! The breakfast is superb a lot to choice from! And even the lunch and high tea are amazing good in front of the fireplace and christmas tree. The tube is 5 minutes walk and the kensington area is very clean and safe to walk in the evenings!

We had a lovely weekend treat by staying in the Kensington Hotel. It was an oasis of calm in the busy city of London both in the public areas/lounges and our room itself. The staff were more than helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We used South Kensington tube station which was 5 mins walk so the location was perfect.
