I am (or was) a loyalty member of Rydges and had booked accommodation for 4 nights through the members portal. I requested a Standard King Room and was checked into a room in the basement, next to the Gym and with a large air extractor just outside the main window. The room, although very nicely appointed was noisy. Upon a... More

The recption staff was welcoming and helpful. The rooms are VERY small, as are the bathrooms. No tub, only a shower. Be very aware that the walls are paper thin and a person can hear very clearly "things" going on in the next room. They have a limited room serice menu, but we enjoyed what we had. We caught the...

Room was great, great toiletries, coffee supplies provided. All the front desk people so polite and friendly. Would stay there again in a heartbeat...Visited bartender, Katarina, in the Polo... More

I recently held a conference for around 35 people at The Rydges over three days. I was extremely pleased with the event management staff - they could not do enough to help me. We had some problems with the AV equipment (caused at our end from non-standard equipment) but they were very proactive in trying to find a solution. No... More

I recently stayed at the Rydges in Kensington London, great boutique motel with friendly staff. Transport is at the front door with a bus stop directly in front of the motel & only a short stroll to the train station. I will most likely stay here when next in London.

Stayed here with my Mum and sister while visiting London last weekend. The hotel is very conveniently placed for the tube (Gloucester Road tube is literally down the road) and there are shops an restaurants nearby. Our room was #413 and was clean, spacious and nicely furnished. We had a coffee machine and a well stocked mini bar. Some extra... More

As always, great service from all staff. Rooms are variable in size and layout but you expect that with an older hotel. The refurbishment a few years ago was worth every penny and very well done. The restaurant menu has improved, it used to be limited for a vegetarian. We stay here whenever we visit London, it is a great... More

It was a really nice stay. The room was beautiful and clean. The staff very helpful and friendly. The hotel is very nicely situated near Kensington Park, Harrods, Victoria&Albert Museum and Natural History Museum. Tube station very near. I would stay again!

Room smallish but very well appointed - we were a party of three and had a room with a sitting room off it for a sofa bed. Clean & comfortable, toiletries replaced daily. Really quiet considering location. Staff seemed friendly and were helpful. Overall very good location - close to tube station, good shopping & some great eating places nearby... More
