Recommended by Cond Nast Johansens Our inspector loved "The location, just tucked away off Kensington High Street, a warm welcome and good value." Ideal for Single Travellers both Corporate and Leisure. Kensington House is a contemporary Town House Hotel located just off High Street Kensington. This luxury hotel in central London provides a warm welcome and a perfect base from which to explore central London. The peace and quiet of Kensington Gardens is just a short stroll away with world-renowned shopping, restaurants, art galleries and museums also within walking distance. The four storey building has been restored to its 19th century elegance whilst the interior reflects a modern understated style. Each of the 41 luxury en-suite rooms have been designed with comfort and style in mind. The bright and airy rooms have large windows and offer crisp linen, duvets, modern furniture and fittings adding a fresh contemporary look to a classic design.

Horrible room the 1st night

I don't know about anyone else, but I have found that because I buy rooms on line, at a discount, I'm often given rooms that are less attractive, less comfortable, etc. This surely happened to me at The Kensington House Hotel in London recently. The first night I was there, I was given a tiny room on the first floor with an incredibly uncomfortable single bed. It seemed the box spring or mattress itself was broken (!), and the pad (?) on top of the bed was a thin lumpy pad that provided no padding whatsoever. There wasn't a duvet on the bed. Instead, I had to request one, but was told they could only bring blankets. So, I was given 2 heavy woolen blankets, something I hate because of the weight. Needless to say, I got very little sleep that night. The next day I complained and was given another room - quiet, higher up, with a double bed, fluffy duvet, and big bathroom. This room must have been more expensive, but I wonder why you wouldn't give a guest (especially a first time guest) a comfortable and attractive room to begin with, if you have it available? Why intentionally give any customer an inferior room? For the room transfer, I was inconvenienced by the time it took to repack my things, and I was certainly inconvenienced by how tired and sick I felt during 1 of my only 2 days in the city. Also, I don't recommend this location unless you have a car. It's between 2 underground stops that are kind of hike to get to. I was tired and alone so it was way too much walking to get anywhere. On the up side, staff were friendly and professional morning continental breakfast was OK even though the staff were unnecessarily frenetic. Bellboy was very nice.
