Named after the stunning Royal Park, Kensington Gardens is your elegant escape. Bay windows and wrought-iron railings decorate the exterior. Inside, each modern room includes tea, coffee, and local cable. And you can enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast downstairs. The surrounding streets are filled with Victorian homes, traditional pubs, and plenty more London attractions. Watch the ceremonial changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace. Experience live entertainment at Royal Albert Hall. Or picnic on the manicured lawns of Hyde Park. You’re never too far from a good time or a frosty pint while at Kensington Gardens. Use the Sonder app to navigate your stay from start to finish. Check in. Request amenities. Connect to WiFi. Contact customer support. All via our small (but mighty) app. Whatever you need, we’ve got you covered. This Sonder has a front desk which is staffed 24/7. Our on-site team is available to ensure you have a better stay.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Nice little hotel in a good location. Nice simple rooms. Breakfast is basic but enough to set you up for the day. Checking was straightforward enough and room supplies were on hand. I would say the cleaner does need to move items and clean underneath them as we found discarded toenails under the bathroom bin when we moved it. Other than that a good experience

My first visit to a Sonder accommodation,, I will certainly use it again soon. Great service and staff. Perfect location for me. I’ve already told my friends visiting London and Paris to book through Sonder. Jonpaul Holt

Efficient processes, superb location, reasonable value for money. So good to have a separate area to relax and work. Excellent breakfasts - well done on getting this up and running. Have been there 4 times now - will definitely be back.

A great breakfast was a surprise treat. Really good fresh squeezed orange juice. This location was very good for Kensington and Hyde Park explorations. Very clean, nice bed and linen. Rooms look like they do on website. Small but functional. It was a little hot, and windows opened just a bit. Room had fan though, so I turned it on. Great for 3-4 day stay.

Do not come here in the summer. These old London terraces look lovely -- and they are -- but they are NOT equipped for summer. This property has no zircon, and if you are on the top floors -- even the lower floors -- you will suffer. It's so hot. Fans are useless as they just push hot air around, and you can see the dust. Don't stay here in the summer. I woke up with an enormous headache each night and had to leave early. Not fit for the heat at ALL>

Had a lovely time staying at the Sonder in Kensington! Couldn’t have asked for a better location. The room was clean, well-stocked, and very comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. Exactly what we were looking for for our stay!

This hotel allows a fair bit a freedom, which I really appreciate; you’re given a passcode to enter your beautiful apartment with most services included, cleaning service is extra but I didn’t mind the responsibility to keep your room clean. When it came to trouble organising transport, deciding on tours to attend or pretty much anything, all of the staff were extremely accommodating. Personally, I found my experience with Sonder really enjoyable. There wasn’t any additional services pushed on us, the location itself is really easy to access, (right near the Big Bus Tours stop). I would go to this place again if I were to visit London

Very comfortable and welcoming. Front desk took our bags before checking in which allowed us to explore the area until our room was ready. The staff were wonderful and extremely helpful. Beautiful location.

Very comfortable and spacious for London. Great location in Kensington! Super close to tube station and being right at Hyde Park is perfect for that morning Ron! Americans take note that closet space is limited but worked for us just fine.
