Kensington Court Hotel3.0 out of 5.0

I will start with the positives, brilliant location, easy access to the tube taking you strait into London and the local area had many bars and restaurants to eat at. The room was spacious, comfortable and had 2 fans which were essential in the summer's heat. For a short stay all this was ideal. Now for the negatives. Firstly we chose this hotel as it was one of the few with a car park and as we were driving this was essential, it was more expensive then alot of much nicer hotels I had viewed but as we needed to park it was a compromise we didn't mind. However wheb we arrived the staff were rude and had no record of our booking, it was eventually found after along time waiting following a long drive and following this wait we were informed that the parking was 20 pounds a day! With no indication online this was an additional charge this was a shock as seeing as the hotel was more expensive then many four star hotels we had booked it for the conveninience of parking, so to be informed that we would have to spend an addition 40 pounds in total for the parking by rude staff didn't start our holiday off on the best footing. Location and convenious are positives but if you don't need parking there are many more cheaper hotels of a higher standard.
The room was alloted as a part of my COSMOS Tour Package. Location: Is very convenient as most of the Stores are just minutes walking distance from the hotel. Size: Room size is really very small. I hit the bed edge everytime I came out of the Toilet. (But I was told Rooms in every hotel in London have small rooms) Service & Staff: Were good & accomodating. Had no issues with anyone. Choose this hotel if you want to shop & eat the good stuff.
The hotel is good, with good breakfast and on the whole, helpful staff. We had a room for Three and lots of space, at least for being in London. Small fridge and even a sofa! Our room was on the first floor, fasing a walkway, so the windows could not be openened more than very little, which was a inconvenient, as London was experiencing heatwave.
This hotel was booked by our travel agent several months ago. The reviews didn't look too bad and the pictures looked good. We were so disappointed. The staff was very nice and it is convenient to the Earl's Court tube. There is NO air conditioning and the room was so hot. They gave us a fan but it really did not do much good. The WiFi was very intermittent and the refrigerator did not work. It was in a cabinet and the top of the cabinet was HOT! We were really concerned. They did not seem concerned and told us that was the correct temperature for a refrigerator in the UK. Do temps differ?? We ate breakfast there once. It was terrible. It was our first trip to the UK and it just makes us sick how much we paid for this hotel. Do NOT waste your money.
Terrible hotel. Wifi does not work. Complained but ignored. Breakfast crappy n not on time. Rooms not cleaned daily. Old n worn out. Poor lighting. Staff very rude. No tea / coffee although promised. Shower not working.
We stayed 3 nights and really found nothing to complain about. The room was clean and functional, nice and quiet with a view to the street below. The water was warm in the bathroom morning noon and night with big, soft, fresh towels every day if you want. Ideally located 4 mintues walk from Earls Court tube station on a quiet one way residential street surrounded by lovely 6 story town houses. Breakfast was more than adequate, we certainly didnt go hungry. The staff were friendly and we would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting fuss free accomodation in London.
We stayed for one night whilst meeting a group for dinner nearby. The hotel was adequate for this purpose. The location was good, within walking distance of the tube station which has good connections into central London. Although in a busy area, the street was quiet and pleasant. We had very little interaction with the staff but they seemed helpful enough and there was always someone at the reception desk. The room was large with two very small double beds. The room and bathroom appeared to be clean but a bit scruffy. My husband found it too hot and the lighting inadequate. We didn't have breakfast. This seems to represent all that one can expect from a hotel towards the centre of London for a "reasonable" price.
The location was brilliant, lovely street, close to local amenities such as restaurants, shops, tube and museums. Car park at hotel £20 per night, great rate for central london and in a private car park with a view of the car park from hotel window. Old hotel with limited facilities, limited breakfast, uncomfortable bed.
I stayed here with my daughter for a sightseeing and shopping trip, my son was also due to come hence a triple room booking but couldn't make it. The room was spacious and what I expected. The hotel is excellently located for access to the tube and with plenty of food options nearby. Breakfast was disappointing but I would definitely return in fact I have tried to rebook but the price has gone up by £400 which in my opinion is extortionate and I have had to look to book somewhere else which is a shame.
My husband and I stayed here for a week, and it wasn't long enough! Lots of reviews say that hotel staff was great, but this staff is beyond what service is about! If you want another level of hotel stay here. Easily walked everywhere, lovely hotel bar, and room service fish and chips...for those nights you want to stay in...was amazing! This is the place dream trips are made of...
