Just the job!

For a one night stay in the thick of it this was excellent value. Rooms are rather on the small side but who cares if all it will be used for is sleeping. Well equipped, tea & coffee, little television, comfy bed and shower that worked. perfect position for museums and knightsbridge and only 200 yds from the underground. Didn't try breakfast so can't comment on that but otherwise staff genial and helpful. Some noise from the busy Cromwell Road but not enough to be troublesome.

Great value!

Perfect location, Gloucester Rd tube just around the corner. Sainsbury's opposite for any bits you may need and a couple of restaurants too. The room we stayed in was plenty for us not huge amounts of space, but for two nights it wasn't necessary and we weren't spending much time in the room. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends!

Very nice stay!

We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay here. The location was great in a nice area of Kensington- less than 10 minutes from the Natural History Museum and Science museum. Also close to a tube station and an open bus tour route so great for tourists! Room was a bit small but absolutely fine for us. Really enjoyed our stay here :)

Kensington Rooms London

Excellent for the price. Located in beautiful South Kensington, near the tube, good and cheap restaurants and cafes, but for people who are on the move the whole day. London is fantastic, but where are the English? By the way, I was counting the Aston Martins. Don't forget to visit the Imperial War Museum. I go every time I,m in London. Enjoy...

Good hotel

We got a massive discount for a double deluxe room which was a very good value for money. Although it is overpriced if you pay the full amount. The room is basic, but comfortable and clean. The walls are very thin and it can be very noisy. Could use some refurbishment to remove the water stains from the ceiling and unclog the sink. Great location with very good transportation connections.

Good value in an expensive city

Staff was very cooperative when faced with a customer who became handicapped while on the trip. Worked to make housing situation livable for customer. Breakfast available for a price, with local restaurants in walking distance for other meals. Free WiFi available - unique in England.

Good times in a great location

While the room was small, we had our own bathroom (many places in this price range only had shared facilities -- horrors!).
