Dining

Forum Room Restaurant
This restaurant is bright, airy and spacious which can take large group of people. It is modern looking with two buffets and a small bar, where you can relax while having morning beverages, Continental or full English breakfast. It provides lunches for me

Convenient Location

The London Kensington Forum is exremely convenient for getting around London.With a tube station only a half block away and a taxi rank on the hotel grounds a visit to any part of London is a snap, even for the London newcomer.Couple this with a central location and a myriad of restaurants and pubs within walking distance and you have a safe bet for a London stay.However,if you are seeking old world charm you won't find it at this very large,modern,American style hotel.

Excellent!

The hotel was located a block from the Gloucester Rd Tube stop, with the central, district and Piccadilly lines all right there.... so very very convenient. The staff were very friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. The fitness room was nice, just no heat! Other than that, I would stay there again in a heart beat!

Very clean, great location

Great location, right next to the subway station. I had a very clean and a room larger than I was expecting to get in Europe. I was quite pleased. The staff was friendly, as well.

The subway station is just around the corner so familiarize yourself before you go and use the tube as much as possible.

The best Hotel in every way with a nice pub and great amenities

As usual in London, I was expecting a tiny standard room. To my dismay, the room was clean and spacious with a double bed. The bathroom was clean and immaculate. The location was very good, easy access by tube to anywhere. On top of that, there is a big super market right at the tube station. This hotel and its staff are the best I have seen in London. I will always stay there when I am in London. God Bless.

There were a few restaurants around the hotel. A Thai restaurant about a block from the hotel going at Gloucester Road. Supermarkets as well and a short walk to the underground.
