I had high expactations for the hilton in kensington. I had to pay a lot extra for a single room. I can understand why i have to pay if i stay in a 2 bed room. But this was a verry small 1 person bed. I felt taken advantage of because i'm on my own. The room was verry clean....

Reviewed February 27, 2017

Well located hotel with good facilities. The lady on check in was extremely helpful and as I was early checking in explained that I could go through to the executive lounge (included when booking an executive room) and wait. She would then let me know when the rooms became ready. Went off to the lounge to find a spacious quiet...

Stayed here in early April for a weekend arriving Friday and leaving Sunday. Turned out the hotel is in a perfect location just outside sheppards bush tube stop. We arrived early at 11 am and were to do a pre check in and leave our bags there which was great. The rooms were spotless and very modern if a little...

Great location for the hotel, as it’s right next to the Shepherd’s Bush underground station, and terrific (and huge) Westfield Mall. Staff was super nice. The rooms were a little small, but that’s to be expected in London. All Ubers stop around there too. And you’re right next to some great neighborhoods for restaurants and boutique shopping, including Notting Hill,...

We booked one of the suites to have a bithday dinner for 100 people. We also booked two rooms for the immediate family. The rooms are a little dated, needs some paint. Food (breakfast) was good. Dinner party was fab and the chef cooked a brilliant meal for our guests. Staff members were very helpful, always smiling and delightful to...

I often stay in the Hilton London Kensington whilst on business in London. The location is excellent. It is only a few minutes' walk from Shepherd's Bush underground station (location on the Central Line, and will get you to Oxford Circus in 11 mins) and it is also right next to the Westfield Shepherd's Bush shopping centre (so plenty of...

I stayed here whole attending a conference at Olympia. Good Hilton that comes with outstanding front desk service. I especially enjoyed the executive lounge, that made all the difference. It's location on the ground floor was handy.

This Hilton hotel is a little dated and my single room reflected that fact. The wallpaper was peeling slightly with some ? water damage, and the shower recess was a little old and worn. That said, the room was still relatively clean despite the obvious ageing. This Hilton is very convenient to the Westfield Shopping Centre and Shepherd's Bush station...

Check in and desk staff very helpful, however try to order something to eat/drink in the bar and you could be waiting a very long time. The two staff on duty were too busy fiddling with things behind the bar to bother looking up and serving their customers. Eventually gave up and went elsewhere. This is one of those hotels...
