We have stayed at the Mercure Kensington numerous times - it is our preferred base when we visit London from NZ most years.
This year we stayed a week. We were upgraded, which was appreciated. Our room included a small fridge with complimentary water and soft drinks. If you book a small double room they are small - we stayed in one on one visit, but would avoid them in future, though we have had much smaller hotel rooms in London!
The bed was comfortable and we have never had any noise issues at this hotel. We did not have breakfast in the hotel.
The location is good - half way between the Earls Court and Gloucester Road tube stations, both of which are about a 5 minute walk away. If you are coming from Heathrow Airport use Earl's Court station, as you can get to and from the Piccadilly Line platforms with no stairs - a big plus if you have suitcases.
There are plenty of eating options nearby at either Earl's Court or close to Gloucester Rd station.
London hotels are quite pricey, but as an Accor member I am reasonably happy with the rates I can get for this hotel.
We will continue to use this hotel as our base when in London.More
