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

A nice American touch

I am an American who stayed here on business. The hotel was nice, with more American sized rooms than the typical British miniatures. The truly appreciated touch was that I had to spend Thanksgiving here away from family, and they actually offered a full Thanksgiving Dinner with all the trimmings, which I took advantage of and truly appreciated.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a decent laundrette a short walk away, Bobo's Bubbles, 154 Cromwell Road. They will do it for you until a certain hour, or you can do it yourself until late.

The hotel is nice and comfortable. The atmosphere is also welcoming, and friendly. The free Wifi was a plus for me. Nice pub, and delicious breakfast. The location, and access to transportation makes this hotel my favorite.

Expensive, but good location

The hotel is within 5 minutes walk of Waitrose, Tesco and Sainsburys, perfect for buying 20kg of much-missed food to take back to Japan the next day. But the room is about the same size as a Japanese business hotel (ie tiny), yet 5 times the price. That's London, far more expensive than Tokyo.

Good Location and price

Clean, friendly staff, and great location next to Gloucester Road tube. Wifi prices are a total scam though, only complaint of the experience.

Holiday Inn Kensington Forum

for the price, a good deal if you are just looking for a generic rooml. They need to update and put back small fridges in the rooms - a disappointment.
