The Best Western Seraphine Kensington Olympia Hotel was such a great find!
It is located right on Kensington High Street a couple of minutes walk from the tube station, and across the road from a bus stop. There is a Waitrose a couple of doors down which is very handy, and there are many restaurants and shops within the vicinity.
My friends and I stayed in a room with a large queen/king sized bed and a single. Whilst it wasn't the biggest room, space wasn't an issue for us. It was impeccably clean and very well appointed. The shower was absolutely fantastic as it was so powerful with a rainwater head fixed to the roof. There were tea and coffee making facilities and a good television.
The breakfast was very pleasant with everything one could have wanted (the usual continental affair).
What made the hotel really excellent in my eyes was the quality of the staff. From the moment we arrived, they went out of their way to be courteous and helpful. At one point, I asked if they had any shoe polish, and the man at reception spent 15 minutes looking until he eventually found some for me. They also very kindly arranged for us to check out late with no extra charge or fuss.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a bright, modern, clean and extremely welcoming central London stay. I seriously doubt one could find a better value hotel of this standard anywhere else in Kensington.
