Have never felt the need to leave a review before but I was really unimpressed with this place. On arrival the hotel looks lovely from the outside but the interior fit and finish looks nothing but completely worn out. We ordered 4 rooms as was away for a family get together and all 4 rooms had same issues, freezing cold...

Stayed here for 1 night with my boyfriend from Saturday 24th September. On arrival we were checked in quickly and were even upgraded to an executive double room with a balcony, what a bonus! Room was a good size clean and tidy, (just like the pictures.) The bed was comfortable and the shower was very great. The free continental breakfast...

It's a real pleasure for all of the team to know that the guests were so happy with their stay - both in respect of the room we provided and in respect of the service that they have received. The superb location of Avni Kensington Hotel comes up in review after review and it's true that it is an excellent...

We stayed in the hotel for the night. We chose this place due to it being linked to a theatre package deal and having good reviews on trip adviser. The staff are so lovely and they have a good little cafe at the reception and the breakfast was good. The rooms were neat & clean. The only things letting the...

Ok so the building is beautiful the room was clean and tidy however i do think you are only paying for the location. The room lacked basic facilities such as an iron and enough wardrobe space (four hangers on a thirty cm rain) which i dont think is too much to ask when we paid £150 for one night. The...

Supposed to stay 3 nights but we checked in and used the wifi to book at the Double Tree Westminster instead. The hotel is far from landmarks and tourist attractions. Our room was in the basement and smelled stuffy. No natuaral light and very very very small. Two single beds with worn-out matresses. It is not worth any money to...

Our travel agent made the reservation on our behalf. No idea how they got a 3 star rating. In no uncertain terms: it sucks!! We were allocated one of the basement floor rooms. Stuffy, no proper duvets and crammed in. We got onto the WiFi, booked a different hotel and an Uber to get away from that place

Avni Kensington is in a great location, near to the tube, the museums and the Kensington highlights. The hotel; well you get what you pay for. Not the best, but not the worst. Check in was a bit clinical, speedy, but not the most welcoming. My room was adequate, there was only myself staying and it was big enough for...

Small room, good bathroom but had no warm water first day. Breakfast minimal compared to other hotels of same category (no english breakfast available). Early morning can be very noisy because of large number of relatively low overflying planes to Heathrow. Friendly staff at reception.

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood 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.
