My wife and I just returned from a weeklong trip to London, including our (first) stay at The Resident. In short, we had a great experience at the hotel. The staff was exceedingly helpful and friendly. Our room was small (by design), but very comfortable and efficient. Kitchenette, closet space, and bathroom were all welcomed and supremely functional. Location on a quiet street a short walk from Earl's Court Tube station. We took the Underground from Heathrow to Earl's Court with minimal expense (£3.30 peak/£1.90 off peak with Oyster card) and fuss, and Earl's Court is very well-positioned to get to all parts of Central London in under 30 mins Tube + walk. 15-minute walk to Kensington and all its sites. We'll be back the next time we visit the City!
This was our latest stay at the hotel and there was nothing to disappoint. From the friendly and helpful staff to the well appointed room, we had everything we needed. The kitchenette area was a godsend as we were able to cater for ourselves when we needed to. The location is great for travelling to the host of attractions London has to offer. There were so many within a reasonable walking distance (especially if this was on a strike day) and if slightly further, the tube or bus connections were readily available. We'll always choose to stay at the this Resident hotel when we return for future holidays.
We just returned from our trip to England. We spent 5 nights at the Resident Kensington. It is a lovely and cozy hotel. It is beautifully maintained, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The location is also great being only a block from the London underground. We'll definitely stay again.
We were thrilled with the proximity to the Earl's Court tube stop and with all the neighborhood had to offer. There was a great bakery/coffee shop across from the tube and a lovely pub on the corner. The staff was super helpful and friendly, able to answer all of our questions and provide great tips on getting around and enjoying London. Room was immaculate and spacious. Neighborhood was quiet but not sleepy. The bed was comfy and the free bottle of red wine was a great welcome gift. Would definitely stay here again. Hopefully soon!
Room was a little tight, however, while the hotel was fully booked, never heard any noise from other rooms. Great location—good restaurants within 15-30 minute walk (Phillies for breakfast, Tendido Cero great tapas). Walk a block for the Piccadilly underground. And last, but not least, everyone at the hotel was extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with.
I found the hotel on the SLH in London website. I wanted to spend three days in London to celebrate my birthday and I wanted to do it in style. And that's what happened in my Deluxe room and thanks to the whole staff. A special mention to Maria, Angelina and Gemma. Edgardo was the icing on the cake: a real Chocolate Delight!!!
everything is perfect, from the welcome drink to the availability of the staff and their kindness. The residence is located in a beautiful middle-class area of London, a few steps from the subway. To recommend seriously
Very pleased with the Resident Kensington. Great location, short walk to Earl’s Court station, restaurants and shops. Within walking distance to Kensington Palace, Hyde Park, the Natural History Museum and other landmarks. Great staff, courteous and very helpful. Definitely would stay here again.
I love staying here and find the kitchenette in the closet so well outfitted - simple, clean with everything you need including Nespresso machine, kettle, microwave, fridge plates...which for me is a huge bonus. Rooms are small (small double is where I stay) but everything you need is thoughtfully supplied and feels the right level of luxury for a value price. The bathrooms are spotless and serene, fixtures and amenities are of a very good quality. The hotel is quiet and the service is excellent. Location also excellent easy walk to underground, M&S food, other eateries, shops, quiet and safe.
The Resident Kensington is lovely in every way. The staff is warm and responsive, the rooms are lovely and so clean, and the neighborhood is terrific! There are many shops and restaurants in the area as well as a Tube station which is easy to navigate. It's a beautiful little gem.
