Stayed here in January 2014 with my partner. When we arrived we had a swift and easy check in and the staff were very helpful. The double room was an average size but had all the usuals - kettle, tv, safe (etc...), and everything was clean and in perfect working order. The hotel is in a great location with the... More

We needed to stay in London for two nights on our way to a wedding nearby, and searched for a reasonably priced option around Kensington. Despite the hotel name, this hotel is actually not located in the heart of Kensington but close by in Holland Park. We stayed in an executive room thanks to a temptingly priced offer on a... More

I stay in a lot of hotels on business and so expect a great service and a pleasant night's sleep so it doesn't affect my business and my work. I was impressed by the Hilton in Holland Park Avenue because the service at Reception was very helpful and she even showed me the Executive Lounge which I had access to... More

I received a warm just out of the oven chocolate cookie immediately upon arrival(tour group), how could you not like this place? It has a modern no frills lobby with just a couple seats, restaurant attached with indoor and outdoor seating near the street. Directly across the street from Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. Room had a sleek Euro look,... More

At the time of my stay, the restaurant wasn't open for dinner. I retired to the lounge and had a wonderful every night. Breakfast was in the restaurant and was very good. Two nights I (and others) enjoyed the piano technique of a young man from England. Very talented. A very welcome stay all around.

All of the hotel staff were friendly. They remembed things like where we were from, who we were visiting etc. Two tube stations are within waling distance and... 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
