Needed to get to "the Bank" area in the city, front desk told me I would never get a black cab in the morning, it was too busy, this turned out to be a lie, as the main road outside has a constant stream going past on the other side of road, and that they were expensive. He said it... More

I've stayed at the Kensington Marriott three times now and can say that overall the hotel offers an average experience for the hotel visitor. I am a gold level rewards member and so I often receive fairly good treatment at the Marriott chain. Let me say first, that the beds are wonderfully comfortable and the hotel is located just 5...

My family and I have stopped in many Marriott hotels before and have always found them above average or of excellent service. Not so for the Kensington Marriott. I booked two rooms for my family and I back in October 2011 for Fri 20th April-Sun 22nd April 2012 part paying with Tesco reward vouchers. My mother and father were in... More

Stayed here on business last weekend. Arrival and check-in very nice, beautiful room with all the amenities you'd need. restaurant was quite slow with the food but the portion sizes were very surprising for a hotel of this standard and the quality was very good too. Breakfast was nice with plenty of choice too. Overall experience of this hotel was... More

My daughter and I spent 9 days at the Kensington Marriott while visiting another daughter who is studying in London. This was my first time traveling outside of the US and I was very worried about how the trip would go. The front desk staff was very helpful and answered all of my questions - no matter how silly they... More

This hotel is very clean and comfortable, although the hotel itself could you a makeover. The beds were very comfotable with quality linens. This hotel is far from the tourist areas, so you will need to take the tube or bus or taxi everywhere. When I checked in, they tried to sell us a breakfast package for 35 GBP a... More

We arrived with several bags to terminal 1, The options to get to the Hilton are a hefty 20-30 sterling or by train which is free, extremely long walk to the train if you have more than one bag. Lines were long but management seem to be aware and instituted traffic control. A couple of good restaurants, we chose Chinese,... More

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
