Was dubious about this hotel at first, no breakfast etc but I am so glad we picked it. Beautiful room, Huge bed and our own Patio. The Kitchenette was tucked away but really practical - Loved the Nesspresso coffee. The staff were really friendly and it was 2 minutes away from Earl's court which is a really accessible tube station. Will Definitely be looking to stay again.

Dear Scott S, we are delighted you chose us and even more that you enjoyed your room with the patio, the bed and the services we provide. The Kitchenette is our signature feature that many guests do enjoy and with the latest upgrade of the Brita tap filtered water and the Nespresso machines in all our larger rooms we aimed to give even more to our guests. We hope to see you again soon!

Comfortable, clean and contemporary hotel with very friendly staff. Location is fine being close to Earls Court and many shops/food and drinking places but it is on a back street so very quiet. Easy access to most of London. Only downside for us was a lack of bar/restaurant in the hotel but we knew that when booking, so no surprises. Overall great value for money in a central London location.

My husband and I just got back from London, and our stay at The Nadler Kensington was great! Very clean, comfortable bed, and a mini kitchen just everything you need in a clean, compact area! Close to the Tube, restaurants and bus stops! A perfect location. The staff were amazing. I strongly recommend this hotel! Enjoy!

The Nadler Kensington was truly the perfect place to stay during our recent visit to London. It was our family's first visit to England and everyone at the Nadler helped make it virtually stress free.

We landed at Heathrow at 7:30 am local time after an overnight flight from Newark, NJ. They helped us with transfers and were able to have our rooms available for earlier arrival, which was so very nice.

Our rooms were very clean, well appointed and expectedly small, typical for a hotel in a large city. The hotel is situated one block from the Earl's Court tube station (District and Piccadilly lines), which makes it very convenient to get to Westminster, West End Theatres and nearly everywhere else. The Earl's Court area is very nice, with several restaurants, coffee shops, etc nearby.

Without a doubt, though, the people at the Nadler truly stood out to us. They always greeted us with a smile and an offer of assistance. They helped us with restaurant recommendations, suggestions for how best to see specific sights (Globe -- Millenium Bridge -- St. Paul's area, for example), navigating the tube and bus system, and much more. I can honestly say that we never saw nor spoke to a single person associated with the hotel that wasn't cheerful, smiling and helpful -- even if it was a simple, "How was your day and where did you go? Did you like it?" They seemed sincerely interested in whether we were enjoying our stay.

Hotels in London are expensive, but the Nadler provides an excellent stay at a price well below what you will spend elsewhere. The quality and service at the Nadler are equal or better than you will find at more expensive hotels in London.

When we go back, we will stay at the Nadler.

Fantastic boutique hotel ideally located near Earls Court Tube Station, its only a 3 minute walk away from the hotel. The hotel is a town residence beautifully renovated in a modern classic style.

While the majority of the rooms are compact, they contain everything you need ie. comfortable bed, large shower (not over a bath), kitchenette with microwave, coffee machine, crockery and cutlery.

The rooms are well serviced by housekeeping and the reception staff are excellent, both efficient and helpful. Upon arrival at the hotel, we were provided with a map, restaurant and café suggestions and given a brief rundown of the area ie. museum locations, shopping areas and walking distance estimates or provided with the tube line and stop, or bus route to take to the various points of interest,

Will be staying again and hoping its sometime soon.

Room Tip: Rooms on the Courtfield Gardens frontage are best on Level 1 & 2.

The Nadler Kensington is in a great location, being a short walk from Earl's Court Underground Station which gives easy access to the West End, Belgravia, Kensington and Westminster. Our rooms was modern, very clean and well appointed - if a little small. The built-in wardrobe and storage unit contains a neat mini kitchen with kettle, microwave and Nespresso machine which means you can prepare a small breakfast or snack on demand; helpfully there is an M&S Food close to Earl's Court Underground.

Room Tip: Our room only had a shower.

My first London hotel! It's a 5 minute walk to the Earl's Court tube station so that's a plus. It's in what looks like a residential district, but that entire block are hotels. Very discrete signage.

Check in was good. Apparently asking for a passport number at hotel checkin is a common thing in Britain. It struck me that there are steps and stairs everywhere, and it'd be a pest if you had mobility issues. Good storage in the room, the kitchenette was great. (An aside a 220v kettle will boil water very quickly).

The room was perfectly adequate, there is a comfy couch under the TV, so TV watching would be from the bed or the ridiculously modern chair with no back. The TV software was pretty sophisticated, no way to use your own HDMI device though.

The bathroom has a towel heater which gets up to mouse-breath temperature if left on for hours, so skip that expectation. Wifi was free and worked like a charm.

Checkout was quick, room was quiet. Good deal for the money.

Hi GruntDoc and thank you for your review. I am very happy to read that you enjoyed the location and the neighbourhood. You are correct: in the UK as well as many other European Countries it is a legal requirement to register international guests with their passport details. Our hotel is a conversion of Victorian houses, hence the few steps to access the different corridors, however we do have rooms on the ground floor that are step free and we do also have special equipment to allow access from the entrance to guests with limited mobility as well. We would not want anybody to miss out on the opportunity ti stay with us!
We have just completed a new upgrade and installed HDMI connections in all rooms to allow our guests to use their own mobile devices directly on the TVs .
I am delighted that you enjoy the superfast Wi-Fi as it is another one of our latest upgrades. We hope to see you again soon!
