The hotel is great, with excellent service from concierge management. But what is the best in this hotel is the proximity to Westfield shopping center, on the other side of the street. Great global experience!

I had a good stay here again. The check in was pleasant and efficient and I was upgraded to an executive room. The room was rather cramped but adequate. The lounge does get rather busy at peak times but offers a good range of drinks and snacks. I used the option of ordering some food from the bar menu in... More

This hotel is in a nice location and centrally located. The street is rather busy but it is fine. The building is dated but the rooms were fine. My only issue was that access to the executive lounge was said to be based on the rate I paid rather than my Hilton Honors status. I had to pay an upgrade... More

This should be a four star rating, as I have two small subtractions - which I'll get to in a moment - but the service and cleanliness leads me to five. Stay here because: it's bright, welcoming, friendly staff offered options for which room we'd like (booked two twin beds, stayed on the 3rd floor overlooking Holland Park Avenue), and... More

I was generally impressed with the level of service and accommodation at the Hilton Kensington. The rooms and lobby are starting to look a little dated, but this was of no matter. A couple of things in the room like slightly noisy air conditioning and a fridge that did not open were slight annoyances but they did not detract from... More

As a regular Hilton traveller on business, it was a first with family. Returning to my home city as an expat in Australia, I was relieved that on arrival after 27 hours on a plane with child, they gave us our room on arrival at 10am! The good: Early check in, speedy service, child friendly attitudes of staff, good breakfast,... More

Our check-in was fast although we had to carry our luggage up ourselves despite porters being there. Their was no wireless internet service in the rooms, which we were not informed about, and is available only in the common areas. The room service extension on our phone was never answered, despite going through reception and several dishes on the menu... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Hilton Kensington, and I must say what a refreshing hotel with excellent staff. After a long hot day working at the London Film and Comic Con, we really needed a comfortable, stress free, and quiet hotel to relax in, and as soon as we met Carl G. a front desk receptionist we...

Stayed over night 18th June for a business trip, the hotel was in a good location in a shopping area with bars and restaurants near by. The hotel room was a good size with air con. the bed was very comfy ideal for an over night stay but be warned very expensive

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
