Just returned from staying 4 nights. Got a quad which was 54# per night. Was a double bed and two twin beds that were hung from the wall and lowered when needed (like bunk beds). The beds were OK. The room was very clean and I thought it was quiet (my wife would disagree with me as she says there... More

I would like to say few things about this hotel. My sister stayed at this hotel and I made the reservation for her. I was concerned about a couple of bad reviews I saw on this site. Well the hotel is absolutely an excellent value for a very little money, and the bad things that has been said on this... More

I booked this hotel after searching for a cheap hotel to stay in after a night out in London. I was intending to book a 'secret' room in a 4* hotel but after reading the reviews on this hotel I decided to book here. I was not disapointed.

Myself and 4 friends had two rooms in this hotel. Location was great, 10 minutes walk from West Kensington subway. Was quiet at night and the reception staff were friendly. Rooms themselves were small, so were the bathrooms. BUT- the shower worked, so did the toilet, tv and bed (which is quite large). Yeah there was no breakfast, but if... More

I needed to stay somewhere in Central London for one night and still hadn't booked it the night before I was heading down south! Was looking on lastminute.com which showed me cheap rooms, and £38 didn't seem too bad for such a short-notice deal, especially since I had read reviews for other hotels that were a few pounds cheaper that...

After reading several reviews from this hotel I was expecting a lot more! The room was overprized and I just feel their hands slipped into my pocket. Not even free breakfast for the price! Negatives: The toilet's so small you can't do anything there, you can't even wash your face in the sink. But hey, at least it has one!... More

We booked Kensington West through the Eurostar website, along with our train tickets from Brussels to London. We chose it for the price, and because we could get a quad room on short notice (we booked 3 days before we arrived). For a budget hotel, this is a good option. It's not necessarily near any places on the to-do list,... More
