Couples Weekend

Me and my girlfriend were in London for the weekend to see Jersey Boys and this was our hotel for the night. It is situated in a very quiet, upmarket part of Kensington and very close to the Tube and eateries. It was a beautiful hotel and the staff were very kind. The offer of room service was appreciated, though we didn't use it, and the prices were very fair. The airconditioning wasn't working in the room, but we were provided with a fan as soon as it was brought to the hotel's attention. The service was fantastic. The room itself was very large and had a king sized bed. I haven't slept on a bed that comfortable in my life - absolutely perfect night sleep. You could hear cars drive past, but nothing was to wake us up. I would highly recommend this hotel and I look forward to staying here again one day.

Budget Friendly Good Location

The room was a bit small. Booked a double. It was renovated, but not well-done. Several cracks in the walls, stained carpet, etc. The bathroom looked nice but if you pay close attn there were also cracks. Great location, however, close to the tube.

No Problems

No problems. Adequate in terms of cleanliness, safety, space, breakfast, etc. Nice neighborhood. Convenient location for V&A Museum, Science Museum, and Natural History Museum. Not too far to walk to the tube. Internet didn't reach to my room, which was annoying, so ask for a room with good Internet if you need to stay in touch with the world.

The room was so-so, the bed was somewhat uncomfortable. The location was excellent though. Overall, average experience.

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.
