The lackluster attitude, the lack of personal grooming, the lack of answering any questions with more than "yes or no" is simply not good enough for a hotel reception, any hotel reception. The one woman looked as if she had slept behind the reception and simply hates her job, which was plain to see. I ask: "Do you have an... More

Just returned from a two night stay (last week) from this hotel. Booking the hotel i had read several reviews and in my mind i was justifying my stay by saying it is only two nights, i can take it even if it's bad. The only thing i didn't like was the walk to the hotel from the station at... More

For a London hotel, the Avni Kensington was surprisingly good value for money. It was by no means luxurious, but for a working trip it had everything we needed (as in a base for the night) with plenty of nearby facilities for anything the hotel itself was lacking. The rooms were small but clean and modern, the only thing really... More

As with all the recent reviewers, I have to say, it's value for money. I stayed for 5 nights while working an exhibition at Earls Court and this hotel was pretty good for the money. The room was small, there was no air-con and the shower was small. But the room was clean and immaculately tidy, with modern furnishings and... More

Avni Kensington hotel is not a luxory hotel. It has small rooms, basic continental breakfast, and minimal amnesties in the room. However, rooms are clean and well maintained, location is great, internet connection is very good, staff is friendly and efficient, and above all, price is very fair. I checked several hotels in Kensington and Knightsbridge and they were all... More

Stayed here for 1 night and chose this hotel mostly for location (which was perfect) and because it was cheap for where it was. Got upgraded to an executive double room when we arrived which was good, and got a choice as to whether we had a balcony or not (we chose the balcony which was a nice addition). The... More

The hotel is in a very nice area in London. It is very close to the tube station. The staff was very friendly. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast is normal. It is true is a little expensive, but you are in the center of London and this is very comfortable when you are visitng London.

I stayed there the first week of Aug 2014. The room had no air as most of the hotel also. If you ask for a room with air it will cost you 50 pounds more. The people were not helpful at all. Small bathrooms. They will give you a small fan if you yell enough. I would never stay there... More
