The hotel is on the whole, quite good. The breakfast is good and has a large choice. The rooms are reasonably modern, and have a table for a laptop. But as usual for most hotels, this "work table" is coupled with a stupid dining room chair that is too low, and completely lacking in ergonomics. The phone system seems a... More

Friendly staff but slightly disappointed in some of the finer details. Room pretty small, towel rail coming off wall, TV reception a bit poor. Expensive for what you get, but decent location by royal crescent, westfield, shepherds bush & the central line.

I stayed her for work in April 2014 and had a lovely two nights at this excellent hotel. I have stayed at Hiltons many times before and they are hit and miss but this particular Hilton is lovely and much nicer than the Hilton down the road at Olympia. The hotel has a few places to eat as well as... More

Great location near west gate shopping centre and tube. Lovely London suburb, two stops from earls court exhibition centre. Hotel itself not at the usual hilton standard, rooms very disappointing, ok if you havnt paid touch but you will be very disappointed if paid a premium. Very tired, cramped and not the quietest. Breakfast ok and plentiful but the bar... More

Hilton London Kensington is located very close to London underground and bus services, Westfield Shopping Mall, Notting Hill, Hyde Park and only a 30 min walk from the Albert Hall, Victoria and Albert Museum, Natural History Museum and Science Museum as well as all the other tourist attractions of West London. It is comfortable with friendly, helpful staff and rates... More

After arriving at Paddington on the Heathrow Express, it was a GBP15 taxi ride to Hilton Kensington located on Holland Park Avenue. I had stayed at the Hotel about 20 years ago so was not expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms had been updated and although I had made the mistake of booking the junior suite which was... More

Stayed at the Hilton Kensington and Hilton Olympia in succession and can say that the Kensington has better rooms, less noise and a better breakfast. However, it has a slightly less convenient location, but is right by Shepherds Bush tube right on the Central line. Overall the Kensington wasn't a bad hotel with a comfortable bed and suitable amenities. I... More

Rooms are tired and need updating. Don't bother getting a suite, it is basically 2 rooms connected and not overly luxurious. Staff were excellent, but everything is an extra. Want wifi in the room? that will be £15 please!! Ridiculous

Great hotel fairly close to the Ideal Homes Exhibition. Also a paradise for shoppers with the very impressive Westfield shopping centre 2 minutes walk away. Rooms were of the usual standard - executive lounge great if unfortunately marred by a party with 5 small children at times. I would happily use this hotel for every London Trip.

This was a very nice and clean hotel. The staff were extremely nice and helpful. The only problem was the check in process was very slow. We had flown from the US and were very tired and it took about 20-30 minutes to complete the check in. The rooms were not suppose to be ready until 2:00 but we were... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Hilton London Kensington is located close to a lot of London event venues and some great shopping too. Only about a 7-minute walk from Holland Park underground station and one of the main central tube lines, Hilton London Kensington is surrounded by places to eat, drink, shop, and watch bands. There is always comedy or music at the Hammersmith Apollo - a simple walk away, or sporting events at Wembley stadium - a short train ride away. And with the modern, well-stocked Westfield shopping center located just across the road, when you stay at Hilton London Kensington you can shop all day. Whatever you chose to do in your spare time, the hotel itself is bright and airy. All the rooms have an LCD flat screen TV and a mini bar. If you don’t want a night in, relaxing in your comfortable room and don’t want to venture too far either; choose to dine in the romantic West Eleven restaurant after making the most of the 24-hour gym and the relaxing sauna and steam room. Staying at the Hilton London Kensington is about making the most out of your time in London. ... more   less
