we stayed at the Marriott for 4 nights and really enjoyed our time there. We were in a junior suite with executive lounge access. The suite was spacious - two queen beds, a living area with a pull out couch and table with 4 chairs. The hotel was modern and clean. The staff were very helpful and friendly from the... More

My wife and I visit London every two years. This year it was between June 24 and July 10. This visit was our third to the London Kensington. My wife was raised in London and last resided in Kensington, so we have reasons to stay in this area. On all three of our visits, we have found the Staff to... More

Not completely an American clientele, but it felt like it. We recognize that the reliability and seeming to have almost completely an American clientele is a wonderful attribute for some visitors. There's nothing wrong with that, although made it feel a little strange to us as Americans used to staying in sometimes-funky local places. Smallish but perfectly adequate room size.... More

We pretty much always stay here when visiting London. It's not that central but is an easy tube ride in. The hotel is modern, clean and efficiently run ... You know what you get with this brand and it's good I have to say .... Would recommend it for a short stay.

I have stayed at this hotel a few times in the past 10 years, so it's disappointing to see it slipping away in terms of quality. It started with my arrival... 3 members of staff standing around (not attending to any guests) watching me struggling with luggage, and ended with a breakfast that I can only describe as absolutely disgusting....

The entire staff was so nice and friendly! The breakfast was delicious! Kensington was a wonderful place to stay since it was more like a neighborhood than a tourist area. It was close to the tube and an easy walk to the Kensington Palace and adjoining park. We would definitely stay here next time!

We went to London July 2-7, 2016 for a family reunion. The hotel is in a excellent location, outstanding staff and wonderful Conceige room and staff. One evening we came into late to the Conceige room and Marcelo built me an outstanding snack. He was very friendly and helpful to all

Coming from a Marriott platinum, they need training in customer service here... We booked the stay several MONTHS ago... and wanted to upgrade to a family room. I called several times and they said to come and check at the property. When we showed up, they said they could not upgrade unless we paid 100 GBP MORE, even though there... More

My daughter and I spend 10 days in this hotel. From day 1, we had wonderful service. Each time we walked thru the lobby we were greeted by the staff. By the second day, the staff at breakfast recognized us and knew our names. We asked to be moved to a room with 2 beds. Front desk staff accommodated this... More

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
