My wife and I stayed at the Kensington for three nights in October 2011. It was a wonderful experience. The staff were most friendly, professional and efficient. We had visited London in 2008 and stayed the other side of Hyde Park (Sussex Gardens), however the location of the Kensington is much better. Only a five min walk to the tube and lots of shops nearby in Kensington High street. Our room was cosy, clean and had all the features that could be expected. The bar was our afternoon/evening post-sightseeing treat and the lounge a great spot to relax. I'd be happy to rate the the Kensington 9.5 out of 10 and it would certainly be my first choice on our next visit (hopefully 2013!)
