I finally found a hotel in London that has it all....Comfort, LOCATION, service, intimate size, reasonable price

Great location, excellent staff, comfy beds and linens. My only complaint was not having an electrical outlet int he bathroom. It is very inconvenient to have to dry and style hair away from the vanity. Had to juggle a hairdryer and curling iron on chair near an outlet in the bedroom area.

This hotel is very nice and quiet. It sits not far from multiple Underground stations and close to both Hyde Park and The V & A museum. Very friendly staff, Veronica was very helpful. The only drawback was the room was a little smaller than anticipated, luckily, didn’t spend much time in the room.

Excellent experience. Staff was extremely amazing.

Luxury Hotel conveniently located in the heart of South Kensington. Eats and tube station are just a short walk away. We enjoyed the free mineral water and chocolate.

The hotel staff were friendly, accommodating and kind. They went out of their way to make my stay special. The hotel was comfortable, cozy and great ambience. The bar was chic, the main areas were warm and cozy.

Absolutely exceptional, top to bottom. The neighborhood is lovely, the decor is elegant and tasteful, the staff was friendly and helpful and the food was delicious.

amazing 8 day stay at the kensington! super helpful staff, always friendly, always smiling. never condescending. totally recommend 100%.

The hotel is five minutes to the underground. The service, decor and comfort are perfect

Thoroughly enjoyed being in this hotel during our stay in London. Convenient an beautiful location. Accommodating staff. Very very satisfied.

The Kensington is the perfect British hotel- very English, very cozy, and with the best service and friendliest staff.

The staff is wonderful especially George. They were all very nice and friendly. The hotel is beautiful and dinner at the restaurant was great. The only negative experience we got was the smell along the hallway to our bedroom and the initial odor of our room upon check-in. Other than that, everything was beautiful.

The location was perfect for us to see museums, shop and visit family. More significantly the hotel staff was helpful(always), friendly and good at what they do. Lobby atmosphere for sitting, coffee, tea perfect with lots of energy!

While the first room that was shown to me was exceedingly small and dirty, the Kensington staff then upgraded me to one of the largest hotels in the room, which changed the entire experience to a positive one.

Staff is extremely helpful and kind on arrival & for all needs. Very pleasant. Lobby very pleasant for drinks & coffee.

Nothing negative to say about The Kensington, it was awesome. When we return to London in the future, this would be our first choice. Thanks

Great hotel in great location. Really nice and clean rooms. Gave us an upgrade at check in. Service was exceptional with the exception of the service at the restaurant which was slow almost to the point of being nonexistent.

This hotel is very well located in a nice neighborhood: short walk to the tube, plenty of restaurants and cafes, and multiple museums. I was traveling solo for business and the rooms are well kept and comfortable with reliable wifi.
