A ruined trip to London

Where shall i begin! Apart from the location and the staff there is nothing positive to say. Please do not book a single room, i use the word room loosely, more like a cupboard. The bed was broken as was the mattress. The window was i am sure made for a prisoner not a paying guest!!! No air-con but was supplied with a Fan which i suppose helped slightly. When i am back in London on future business trips - one to avoid.

Small rooms but a beautiful neighborhood

The hotel has a decent continental breakfast and is located in a beautiful neighborhood a few blocks from the gloucester tube station. Room was small, as was the bathroom, decor is mimimal yet clean enough, furniture most likely IKEA/could use upgrade. Hotel staff demands you leave room key with them for 'safety reasons' although the area seems quite upscale....found london to be very safe/beautiful and londoners to be a bit paranoid about safety... overall good value for price, remember london is $$$

Avni Kensington Hotel

I initially booked this hotel because of the 4-star rating it had been given and the good price I was getting to stay there for 6 nights. Now I know why my price was so good. The hotel is in a very good location, 5 minute walk to a tube station that has 3 different lines. Lots of restaurants and a couple pubs nearby. The hotel itself was not as nice as I had anticipated from the 4 star rating. The lobby was small and not a real good place to sit or hang out. Because of the heat wave London was having while I visited, most people actually sat on the hotel steps at night to cool off. My room did not have air conditioning and it was extremely hot! The hotel provided one small fan clip on fan that could not even be clipped to the window sill because of the location of the one outlet in the room. Only one fan per room was allowed. When I asked about getting a room with air conditioning I was told that would be an extra $40 per night (pounds - not dollars). The hotel offered breakfast every day, but it was a very basic cold breakfast, toast and cereal and yogurt with apples and bananas, tea and coffee and juice. This got to be old after a few days. The safe in my room broke on the 2nd day and did not get fixed. I was told my belongings (passport / ipad) would be safe, and they were, but I would have liked a safe to lock them up in during the day when I was out and about. The bed was very lumpy from many many years of use. The hotel staff were very nice and pleasant. My room was always cleaned and tidied nicely during the day when I was out. I give this hotel a 2.5-3 star rating. I am not sure why it has a 4, but then I did not get to see the more expensive rooms. I would recommend this hotel to a friend if they were looking for budget / basic accommodations, but would not let them think they would get a 4 star experience.

Buy a multi day travel pass for the bus and tube. The transit system in London is great.

Great value, good location

I don't have any complaints about this hotel except for the lack of amenities provided. Everything was clean, service was good. Only shower gel was provided, no shampoo or conditioner. Room was small, but clean and comfortable.

Small rooms that need refurbishing, but otherwise OK

Pros + Good location + Acceptably clean + Good price for London Cons - VERY small rooms - Rooms would need some refurbishing and more attention (e.g. loose tap) - Breakfast is a chaos

Family sightseeing

Very comfortable, quiet, and located close to metro train service (about a 5 min. walk). We would definitely consider staying there again if returning to London.

A good 'bang for your buck'

The hotel room itself was nothing special. Other reviewers said the room was small but not by London Standards. I have stayed in far smaller rooms. The bed was stiff but comfortable. The room was stuffy and even with windows that opened the room temperature was lower than I like. The shower stall was very small but the bathroom was a good, overall size. I enjoyed the staff. They were friendly and helpful. They did run out of maps but your so close to a tourist area that it's easy to go get one of your own. The location is footsteps from the tube station (5 min walk at a snail's pace) and there are some really nice eateries in the area. For the price I paid for the place there is really not real complaint. I would only ask that they find a way to improve the air flow by providing fans. Even though it was in the 50s to 60s F ( or 10 to 15 on Celsius) weather the room was in the 76 F ( 25 C) which was uncomfortable for me.

It is sad that in London exists a place like this...

This hotel was the worst hotel I have ever been. Outside looks like a hotel, but inside is more like a hostel. In our country (Romania) will be like a one star hotel. We had a small room in the basement that smelled like chlorine, with no possibility to open the window, near the so called "breakfast room". The breakfast was so poor, with no meat at all and will didn't feel like staying in that dirty place. It had a sliding door that woke us at 7 am. We kindly asked at the reception to block it with a chair during breakfast, they wrote our request on a piece of paper with a creepy smile on their face, but nothing was done in the next morning. For two ours we heard and felt that door. The shower was so small and as we didn't have a shower cap it was very difficult to handle. It is sad that in London exists a place like this...
