Henley House Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This little hotel is a great find in Kensington. Tremendous location and lovely staff. Lots to do in the neighborhood and super easy access to Heathrow via the Piccadilly line. They are tiny rooms, but clean and well designed. Would be a very small space to share, especially the bathrooms, but totally do-able. Reception was very helpful and great places to eat nearby.

We loved the bright, airy mango-sorbet-colored breakfast room with fresh flowers on the tables and delicious breakfasts. We loved the tea and biscuits always available in the lobby. We loved the convenient location near the Earls Court tube stop. And we loved our tiny, cozy room that allowed us to tuck away our luggage and organize our things. The room was like a tidy cabin on a ship, and we were passengers in port with dozens of wonderful nearby shore excursions to visit. We found the Henley House Hotel just right!

Great little gem off the Earl's Court Road. Very convenient to the Earl's Court Tube station - made for easy run out to Heathrow on the Piccadilly Line on the moring of our departure. Decent selection of restaurants and pubs in the vicinity. Typical London building converted in to a hotel. Excellent, fresh, modern room with great bathroom and amenities. Great spread for the included continental breakfast. The only negative was that there is no convenient electrical outlet near any mirror - had to plug the hairdryer in to an outlet out side the bathroom and stretch to see and use the mirror in the bathroom. Happily stay here again.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Superb location, minutes from Earls Court station. What a super little hotel! Modern, immaculate bedroom and bathroom. Only made breakfast one morning, but perfectly adequate. Will definitely be staying again.

We stayed here for 2 nights and couldn't fault our stay.Room was spotless, everywhere so clean.Staff were lovely, breakfast continental and plentiful.Fantastic location close to tube ideal for our trip to the theatre.Close to West end by train or very reasonable by uber.Exceptionally cold outside and -3 with snow! We were a bit cold first night as planning permission had to have hearing off during night,but heaters were supplied so very warm 2nd night.Beds spotlessly fabulous.Would highly recommend.Thank you.

The room was as expected for central London, small but not too cramped. It was stylishly designed and finished well, very clean and modern. The bed was big enough and comfortable. Now, the bathroom is the ONLY reason I deducted one star. The bathroom is separated from the room by a thin glass window, not thick frosted glass, clear glass. For 'privacy' there are plastic venetian blinds, which actually don't provide much privacy considering the toilet is less than a meter from someones pillow. If your partner turns the bathroom light on in the night its like they've turned the main lights on. So you'd better be comfortable with having your partner hear your every move in the bathroom (best pray no one gets sick like we did). Apart from that slight design oversight I do recommend this hotel, the price is great, the breakfast room is gorgeous and the tube is a three minute walk!

Hotel is very nice when you compare others london hotels Henley is very clean , staffs are very friendly. The hotel is very close to underground station. Breakfast was weak it should be better And there are some rooms on ground floor that no one want to stay

Stayed for one night after visiting the Royal Albert Hall. This hotel is 30 minutes walk from RAH, and 20 from Knightsbridge (we parked in the Q PARK there). Room is just as described, modern and fresh look with a few little extras like complimentary bottled water in the fridge in the room, white bathrobes, honey and lemon tea to take away from reception. We were on the 4th floor at the back of the hotel, looking out onto the lovely houses in the area. Window opened fully to let in some fresh air, and it was nice and quiet considering the area. Mattress was firmer than most hotels. Breakfast had freshly baked croissants, meats cheese etc. A coffee machine and boil your own eggs. Staff very pleasant and helpful, although on checking out the receptionist was more interested in her personal phonecall than to make sure we could leave our bags in a safe place. The water pressure wasn't great so the rainfall shower wasn't as exciting as we'd hoped, and it would be great if you could include conditioner and moisturiser in the complimentary toiletries, as I wouldn't expect to have to bring these. All in all, a lovely place and would happily return.

Great location and stuff, great very modern newly renovated rooms breakfast with all what you need, the rooms are nice and i will definitely, recommend to anyone that like to be in london and not use the unspeakable hotels rooms offered for much money.

Bed was very comfortable, and a great location over looking the park with small balcony, although to cold to use when we were there. But bathroom was tiny, unable to open door fully due to bathroom sink being located behind door also unable to stand up in front of toilet because bathroom s so narrow, had to move to the side. Hotel a very noisy when other guests moving around.
