My granddaughters and I stayed three nights and had comfortable beds and clean room however housekeeping is very poor, three people in room and only enough milk for two, when we phoned for extra coffee and milk it didn't come, No free Wii fi in the rooms and then we were asked to pay an amount of money for use...

Our tour company booked us here both before and after our tour (2+ weeks apart). I always enjoyed my stay here. Great breakfast buffet in the restaurant in the mornings. At night, dinner was served in the lounge. My meals were excellent. Even had the treat of a young man on the piano several evenings. The waitresses and waiters were... More

We were here for 2 nights and we had nothing to complain about! We have booked a deluxe twin-room away from the elevator, because the elevators in this hotel make a lot of noise! The shower and bathtub were quite small. A complementary bottle of water was waiting for us in the room and was very welcome, because it was... More

Fabulous Hotel, clean, excellent food and service. Staff very Polite. One drawback, it costs £25 per day to park the car. Access to the City by Taxi £26. Would certainly stay there again. I inadvertently paid too much for two meals and did not realise until the morning. I informed the restaurant manager and in fairness he sorted the matter... More

Hilton Holland Park av. is good value for money. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is absolutely top of the range. The passage from garage to reception is a nightmare narrow staircase and there is no decent elevator to the garage.

Stayed at this hotel for 9 nights for business trip. very near to Shepherd's Bush Tube Station, comfortable room and good bed. No wifi in the room (GBP 15/day for wifi in the room), so most guests were at the lobby checking email and lobby was always busy. Housekeeping service was very bad, not consistent, one day never replenished shower... More

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

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
