We had a family room two large beds, very comfortable and the room was... More

After staying at a number of hotels in close proximity to the Crowne Plaza Kensington it was pleasing to find a standard room that was a good size for international travellers carrying more than an overnight bag. Everything from the air conditioning to the plumbing and TV with its welcome message worked very well plus the free daily bottled water... More

After a poor journey experience on the virgin train to London last year replacement tickets gave us the opportunity to stay at the crown plaza again. The decision was a no-brainer for us, the proximity to the subway (Gloucester rd), supermarkets (tesco and waitrose) across the road and 5-15 minutes walking distance to the natural history museum the V&A and...

Our family of four stayed here for 4 nights in August. This is an excellent hotel for a family trip. We got a suite which is a duplex with two double beds upstairs and a living room downstairs, which altogether adds up to probably 500+ sq of space and quite unusual for London. The room comes with access to the... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in July for leisure. Used our priority club IHG points to stay, and got an upgrade to a lovely suite. While they organised this, we sat in the garden and enjoyed a complimentary drink. Excellent location to access the city, tube station is literally a 1 minute walk. Really enjoyed our stay here.

First time at the hotel (usually slaying across the street in the Holiday Inn) - definitely coming back here. Smaller hotel (6 stories high) a 3 minutes walk from the tube station and everything you need - restaurants, pub, boots. Great for business travel and for seeing London.

Everyone we encountered was fantastic, from the front desk to the cleaning staff. Location, as others have said, is convenient for getting around, right near the tube. I would note that the Goucester Road station isn't overly... More
