Great hotel, great location

Lovely hotel and terrific location within walking distance of major attractions and close to very efficient transportation (underground trains,buses and taxis). Hotel bar food delicious but, sometimes, service slow. Upgrading to concierge floor to include breakfast, evening canapes and drinks a definite must, and well worth the extra cost. It is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and will not be our last.

Convenient, clean and pleasant

Stay at this hotel and take the tube from the Gloucester Road Station (Piccadily Line, District Line, Circle Line) everywhere. We even took the Piccadily Line from Heathrow right to Gloucester Road. Imagine how pleased we were to find the hotel right around the corner from the station. While it is not the most appealing hotel from the outside, the inside (including the guest rooms) is lovely. The neighborhood is safe and there is a 24 hour Tesco (convenience/small grocery store) opposite the train station. There are also a number of restaurants nearby that are open late. Great if you are hungry after a long day of sightseeing, TIP: Internet fee of 10 - 20 pounds per day is expensive. Get a package that includes wifi if you can.

Great place for breakfast right across the street, next to the Gloucester Road tube station. Much less expensive than eating in the hotel.

Great place to stay

Millennium Gloucester Hotel London Kensington is a great place to stay. Located in a beautiful section of London and right next to the Gloucester tube station which made getting around the city very convenient. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially the concierge, [...]. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends!

Great hotel

I spent one night here before heading back home. Location is central, on the Tube lines to St Pancras (international train terminal), Paddington, and Heathrow so transport to train stations or airports is cheap and easy. Though not directly near to central sights, it is walking distance to the Natural History and Victoria and Albert Museums and a short Tube ride to everywhere else. The nearest Tube is less than a 5-minute walk. There are quite a few restaurants and cafes in the area, as well as two grocery stores (and a fridge in the room to keep water and snacks). The room was spacious, bed was comfortable, amenities more than sufficient. The furniture was a bit worn, but that didn't outweigh the convenience and comfort or detract from the overall niceness of the room and hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Take the Tube to the airpot - took only 40 minutes; it's a straight shot and cheaper than any other mode of transport.

Centrally Located, Comfortable Hotel

Hotel is located a 3 minute walk away from the Gloucester Road tube stop (next to the Bailey's Hotel -- The Bailey's sits on the square just outside the tube station - you can't miss it). Takes about 40 minutes to get to Gloucester Road from Heathrow airport on the tube (Piccadilly Line)and costs about eight pounds for the trip plus 1 day travel pass. The hotel lobby is updated with friendly, helpful staff. Definitely has the feel of a business hotel. We arrived 4 hours before check-in and our room was ready. Room is quite large by European standards, very quiet, on the fourth floor facing a residential garden. Despite the hotels, neighborhood is quiet and residential, with local pub on the corner, a 24 hour mini mart and a full service Waitrose supermarket next to the tube station. Plenty of local restaurants, also Burger King and Starbucks nearby. In front of the tube station there is also a bus stop for Sightseeing Tour Bus (definitely worth it if this is your first trip to London. Would definitely stay here again.

A great base for site seeing

This was our first trip to London and we were very happy with the hotel's location and service from the concierge, the reception desk, and the bell desk. Everyone was very, very friendly. We arrived prior to check in but our room, twin beds for my daughter and myself as requested, was ready and we were able to quickly check-in, drop our luggage and head out to see the sites. The room was larger than anticipated from seeing photos of other London hotels and very quiet. We did not spend very much time in the room, but it did suffer from lack of lighting: the two lamps provided were insufficient for much beyond reading in bed and working with a dim light on the desk. The beds, however, were comfortable and the room was clean and kept clean by the staff. The bathroom was large, had lots of hot water, and it was, unlike the room, very well lit. We had the hotel breakfast-discounted if you buy vouchers from the desk-the first morning and it was convenient but expensive and pretty terrible. There are better spots in the neighborhood, just make sure you don't miss the posted hours; everyone seems to start cleaning up early. We met family at the pleasant hotel bar which was spacious with lots of comfortable seating. The Best is the Location! Just minutes from the Gloucester Station for the tube and a short walk to Gloucester Road for a number of good restaurants. We did a lot of walking at night and, as two women, felt very safe. You can choose to struggle with luggage onto and off the tube, but we decided to take the Heathrow Express right from the airport to Paddington Station and then a short 5 pound taxi ride to the hotel. It was well worth the money! All in all, if you are coming to London to see the sites, this is a great place to stay. It was more than I wanted to pay, but I am glad I did: it was well worth the extra money to have extra time for site-seeing rather than spending precious time on the train or the tube .
