Stayed here for few days with 16 yr old grandson. Easy to get to from LHR via tube. Nice place with decent breakfast. Within walking distance to Underground & Kensington Palace. Good places to eat nearby. Pleasant & efficient staff. Would stay again.

Spent four nights at The Villa Kensington. Very good value for money. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Lots of choice at breakfast. Ideally located for exploring London. Two minute walk from tube station. Plenty of taxis and buses available. Would definitely stay again
