Come here if you want to be ignored. The Avenue is a small area adjacent to the bar if you want to dine in. I suggest you don't! I was seated and then ignored for 15 minutes, absolute chaos people trying to complain about the quality of the food staff standing around chatting. this is not what you expect from...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 15 January 2017

Booked the hotel for a long weekend to visit London and celebrate my sons 21st birthday. Arrived early and was informed that although the room was not ready, we could use the Executive Lounge as we had been upgraded. I have a Hhonors Gold membership and it has always been recognized when we've visited Hilton Kensington. We went out for...

Good thing is that you are in Kensington, everything is near, but to be honest I expected more from Hilton in centre of London. Everything is outdated in room, but service and location is ok. Tube is up to 5 min walking and bus station just on right side of hotel.

We stayed at the Hilton Kensington for three nights in an Executive room. The location is great for our needs (we did not want to be in the busy areas like Mayfair, Soho or Covent Garden). Tube station Shephard's Bush and Holland Park are within walking distance as well as a bus to Piccadilly Circus or Westminster Abbey right in...

Overall, a good experience for our family stay with Hilton. Subway station, Shepherd's Bush was a mere 5mins walk with Westfield shopping mall and restaurants next to it. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful.

A nice hotel adjacent to Westfield Shepherd bush. Need some renovation and though staff very friendly but gives an image of run down hotel not you expect from Hilton Brand, Being a silver member normally other hotels do give a better room but the same was not provided, even the stay was not recorded in my Hilton honors programme,

This hotel is ideal for visiting Westfield shopping centre, which is just a 5 minute walk away. The restaurant and reception area are lovely, but the rooms are small, old and tired and in desperate need of updating. The service and food for dinner were particularly good in the restaurant, with Sumon Poudel being very well informed about food allergies,...

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
