Stayed here as we were attending a concert at the Albert Hall so location fab! However our room was so small that we didn't have anywhere to put our suitcase. Also our key cards didn't work neither did the heated towel rail and had to ask for another dressing gown! A nice touch was the complimentary drink but there was...

A nice beautique hotel just off Kensington High Street. 5 Minutes away from the nearest tube station and less than 5 miniutes from Kensington Palace. Very clean and comfortable hotel. Staff are very friendly and very helpful. Breakfast is continental, but would have live the option to upgrade to a cooked breakfast. But saying that the breakfast was very nice....

Our room on the ground floor was nice BUT housekeeping and maintenance issues: mould in shower, ceiling fan absolutely filthy, window blinds too small the room didn't get dark because the street lights shone into...

The hotel is a renovated house so spaces are rather tight - rooms, stairs and especially the elevator. However, we found it very pleasant overall. The room was quiet and sunny. Staff is friendly and the continental breakfast was decent, with a choice of cereals, breads, jams, and teas; there was also ham and cheese, yogurt and fresh fruit. The...

Reception staff were so helpful & friendly. Breakfast is very relaxed. So close to Kensington High street with all the shops bars & eateries. Tube station 5 min walk but you can walk from Paddington station across Kensington gardens which is very pleasant. The Albert Hall is 7mins walk from hotel. Ideal location

Having stayed in other far more expensive hotels in the past in the Kensington area of London, as a combination of cost effectiveness, comfort, central location, quality of service and courteous and efficient staff, the Kensington House Hotel is a happy discovery and will henceforth be my first choice when next traveling to London. My double room was as spacious...

I just had the one night here but it was very good. Friendly professional service, a free upgrade to my room, a welcome drink and letter from the manager, and a tidy and adequate room. Continental breakfast was pretty good, and it's a good location.

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.
