Very helpful and friendly staff. Great location. Rooms are small but typical for a boutique London hotel. Wifi connectivity would be a problem for a business person. Week signal and it seemed like password changed every time I went to re-use it. Clean, friendly and good value for the money

We stayed at this hotel in March 2014 when attending a concert at the Royal Albert Hall which was about a 5 minute walk away. The hotel room was clean, comfortable and modernly furnished. We had a standard room which was a bit on the small side but as we were only there for one night it didn't bother us... More

Only simple 1 night stop over whilst attending show. The En suite was really filthy and in need of drastic repair, before someone has an injury, trying to empty the wash basin! We were situated next to a door which has no soft close or control so it slams when opened and the noise is very loud . The WiFi... More

Really nice hotel. We booked as we were going to a gig at the Royal Albert Hall and didn't want to travel home same night. Very close to Tube and a 5 min walk to RAH. Staff very friendly, got a free upgrade plus a complimentary drink at the bar. Room spotless, bed very comfy and slept well (I don't... More

Good hotel. Very friendly staff. Location is great, very close to Kensington Palace and gardens and only 5 minutes walk from Kensington High Street - shopping / restaurants and Tube Station. Breakfast was good. Complementary cocktail on arrival. Bedroom was small, even though we had booked the "Executive Double" - certainly was not exective!! We were very concerned as there... More

We discovered Kensington House Hotel after a couple of disastrous London stays. Tucked away just across the road from Kensington Palace and gardens and within walking distance of the Albert Hall. KHH is on the bus route straight into the city centre, stopping off at Knightsbridge (Harvey Nicks and Harrods) before hitting Oxford Street. Rooms have everything you could need... More

The hotel was nice with very friendly staff. The building site immediately across the road ensured an early start due to the shouted greetings, songs and general sounds of scaffolding poles. Ordered a full English breakfast- cold sausages, bacon, beans and plate. Hotel needs to employ someone who can operate a grill and microwave. It was obvious that the sausages... More
