I have stayed at this hotel several times. Small, cozy and great location just off Kensington High Street. Rooms are small and some needs upgrading, but location and price ways up for that. Great shopping in Kensington High Street and the tube station is only a 5 minutes walk from the hotel. The breakfast is not great, but basic.

Very close to the Royal Albert Hall, our main reason for staying in the area. It was a bit slow at checkin, as there is only one person and you have to be seated for checkin, but we got greeted with a complimentary drink at the bar and quite a spacious room, with a sofa in it.

Loved this place! We had room 304. It was a queen bed with lots of Windows and a small bath. But everything more spacious than I would have expected for a hotel in London. Breakfast was nice to have, yogurt, toast, Danishes, cereal, fruit etc. Everything was smooth we had no issues! The location is across from Kensington gardens and... More

We had a 6 night stay at the hotel and would definitely stay again. The price is very reasonable for the location, very close to Hyde park, Kensington Palace and a short walk to the tube station. Kensington has a multitude of dining and shopping options including Marks and Spencers, plus a very large organic supermarket. Our room was on... More

I confess; we used to live in this area so we may be a bit biased. The hotel has seen better days, but is still well maintained and offers that boutigue feeling. Staff are friendly, but this is no Ritz-Carlton. Some of the rooms have a good size, but others are small. The family rooms represent superb value with breakfast... More

Right by Hyde Park, about 30 minutes walk to the Winter Wonderland. 10 minutes walk from Gloucester Road underground station. Rooms are comfortable for the size, all staff were pleasant, friendly and helpful. Would happily stay again.

We chose the Kensington House Hotel due to it's close proximity to the Royal Albert Hall. An added bonus is it's fantastic location directly across the road from Hyde Park - great for an early morning stroll. The hotel was classy, intimate and exceeded our expectations. Would we stay there again? 100% yes.

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.
