“A rich area but theyy don 't spend it beautification!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

The heart was torn from this area when the old market was closed. Now it's just a bog-standard high street in a country town, which is kinda disappointing for this city.

“Great area to stay !”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Stayed at the Rydges which was a very central hotel and found the Kensington area a great place to stay.

There is plenty to do especially if you just want to explore the local fare. The tube is close by of which there are several lines to take you into the heart of London etc.

The Natural History Museum was minutes walk away from the hotel and so is the main street, Harrods is also a short tube ride from here too.

If your new to London this is great place to begin your journey.

We found some nice places to eat nearby too so overall it's a great place to stay !
