Stayed many times at this wonderful Kensington Townhouse Hotel, never a problem, all staff could not be more professional, one of the finest locations in London. The Aubrey Restaurant within the Hotel is superb.

We couldn't find a better place to stay in London than the Kensington hotel ,the description is correct: spacey (modern, warm and cosy (it really felt like coming home every day). The hotel has a nice view and the public transport is nearby. A Piccadilly line brings you in a few minutes in the city center or in soho! We... More

After a long 10 hour flight my husband and I arrived at The Kensington Hotel. We took the tube to the Underground South Kensington station which was a quick 5 minute walk to the hotel. We were greeted with smiles from the moment the front lobby door opened. Ross at the front desk offered hot towels to freshen our hands.... More

Our first time ever to London and it could not have been better thanks to the wonderful staff at this hotel. The room was not that small (they upgraded us to a Superior bec. we had to wait longer than we were supposed to for our room); our room on the 4th floor was very private and quiet. The house... More

This was my first time to London so please note I have nothing to compare this to. But, the service was impeccable from the bellman to check-in to housekeeping to concierge to restaurant/bar staff thru check-out. The hotel itself is beautiful and very well done. My room was quite small but not at all uncomfortable. The bed was heaven. Free... More

This is a really FANTASTIC hotel, they welcomed us so warmly and open-heartedly; even before getting to the room we got good recommendations about seeing around in the neighbourhood. We're ever more grateful to the staff for that and Furthermore, as it was my birthday on the first of the couple of days we stayed in this luxury hotel, I... More

The Kensington Hotel is just that: A perfect opportunity for relaxation. Helpful personnel in a very welcoming place. We were a family of three and it is the best hotel experience we... More

This is a beautiful hotel full of all necessary amenities. The refreshing thing is that everything is well maintained and works well. The room has a comfortable bed and bathrooms are clean and immaculate. The lounge is large and spacious with a 'chill-out' vibe. As a bonus there is a fabulous business centre, which was a pleasant to surf the... More
