Nice hotel, upgraded to the junior suite on arrival which was a good sized room for London standards. Within 5 mins walk of Kensington High Street tube station. Plenty of shops and restaurants nearby, 10 mins walk to Olympia. Staff could not be more helpful, would definitely stay again.

The BW Seraphine Kensington was a great deal and ticked quite a few boxes for us. Located on the high street, the hotel was v.close to the tube and was within walking distance to shops and restaurants. Our room was very clean, nicely presented and came with all you'd expect from a modern 4* hotel. I particularly liked the rainfall... More

Stayed 2 nights at the Seraphine on 225 Kensington High Street and it was a great experuence. Nice little hotel with character, charm and a fantastic location. Rooms were clean, practicle and very comfortable. If you are staying in London for a couple of nights this is the place to stay.

We stayed in a room with a double bed and a single bed. The hotel staff were helpful, the room was clean and everything you needed from shower gel, towels, hairdryer, kettle, bottled water etc. We were very pleasantly surprised for the location and price. The rooms are small but adequate and had everything you want. Breakfast was included with... More

This hotel is in a super location, the staff were super and customer service was second to none. The only fault about this hotel would be that the rooms are very small. We were out most of the day and only back at night time so suited our needs perfectly. I would recommend this hotel.

I stayed in the hotel for two nights and I was suppose to share the room with my friend. The entrance was really unimpressive, its basically a door in the middle of the road and you have to climb the stairs with your luggage to reach the reception. After getting my room key I entered the room and I was... More

Stayed for one night only. Got pulled in to booking this one as it came under the list of 4 star hotels in central-ish London. So good things first... fairly close to High Street Kensington tube station; friendly staff at reception and breakfast time and really good and clean bathroom, not spacious but modern and clean. Now the rest; the... More
