I took my mother and sister for their first visit to London and the staff at the NH Kensington were spectacular! Carmen checked us in and then took the time to show us to our room and then gave us local information on getting about. For my 74 year old mother, the 74 bus right outside the hotel was a... More

This is a decent hotel. The decor is clean and modern. Room was fine. Staff were helpful particularly about car parking. It is a little overpriced for a hotel of this standard. Air crews put a bit of life into the bar.

Just stayed one night but the hotel was great. The check in staff were very friendly and gave us a very warm and enthusiastic welcome. The hotel has a nice bar with a garden and terrace out the back, its beautiful. A nice touch, I expected most central London hotels to be in very busy and built up areas! This... More

We picked this because I stay at other NH hotels around Europe. This was nice, clean and situated close to a tube station. Breakfast was ok, nothing special but they will cook eggs teh way you want. They have trouble getting the sheets to fit. They are two small for the beds and come off during the night. Suggestion, buy... More

She was right! Our flight arrived at 7:15AM into Heathrow. Took the tube to Earl's Court. The hotel is just a 10... More

Had a small, quiet room with a nice view. Room well equipped except there are no drawers for clothes, but adequate closet space. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Good location to tube station for getting all around London and to and from Heathrow.
