As usual very good service and food at this Hilton. One big disappointment - no Bacardi Rum, only Cuban rum available. A big reason for us not to stay at Hilton hotels. Please reconsider and bring back Bacardi..

Reasonable hotel - getting a little tired inside in terms of decor and furnishings. Clean and tidy. Quiet location. Easy access for driving too and easy to get to tubes for connections into the city. Executive lounge staff very helpful. Good breakfast.

The hotel is located close to Shepherds Bush tube station and so close to the Westfield shopping centre. However, its not that near Kensington, so if you want to be right in the shopping area of Kensington, then this isn't for you. However, its linked by bus and tube, and during the day you can walk through Holland Park. We...

Good location a little of centre but close to the underground and the Westfield mall. Good breakfast. Nice and clean room. During our stay the fire alarm went off but everything was calm and well organized and the staff were apologetic.

The staff on the front desk are the ones that make this hotel, after that it slides down hill. Our room wasn't overly large, but adequate for our needs. Bed was very comfortable and a good size.

Stayed here with family recently. Staff at check in were friendly and efficient. Also the executive lounge was reasonably well appointed and convenient. Only minor issue is that - even with a Platinum Honors status upgrade - the room was pretty small and didn't have an iron. Minor point but feel that this is a basic with a hotel. Overall...

This is a perfect hotel if visiting Olympia. I stayed here for 2 nights when exhibiting at a conference. The hotel is ok, beds reasonably comfortable (Which is important when away on business). Breakfast was nice (Again important).

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hilton London Kensington is located close to a lot of London event venues and some great shopping too. Only about a 7-minute walk from Holland Park underground station and one of the main central tube lines, Hilton London Kensington is surrounded by places to eat, drink, shop, and watch bands. There is always comedy or music at the Hammersmith Apollo - a simple walk away, or sporting events at Wembley stadium - a short train ride away. And with the modern, well-stocked Westfield shopping center located just across the road, when you stay at Hilton London Kensington you can shop all day. Whatever you chose to do in your spare time, the hotel itself is bright and airy. All the rooms have an LCD flat screen TV and a mini bar. If you don’t want a night in, relaxing in your comfortable room and don’t want to venture too far either; choose to dine in the romantic West Eleven restaurant after making the most of the 24-hour gym and the relaxing sauna and steam room. Staying at the Hilton London Kensington is about making the most out of your time in London. ... more   less
