This is the second time I use this hotel.

The first time, I travelled with my wife and kids and hence I splurged for the upgrade. The room was spectacular. The staff is great.

The second time, I was alone so I figured I would go back to this hotel. I was hoping to rewarded for my loyalty, instead I was given a tiny tiny tiny room. It was so small that I had to leave the room to change my mind. It was quiet claustrophobic.

I believe that this hotel is great if you upgrade to a superior room however the standard rooms are not worth the money you pay. There are better deals in the city.

We recently stayed at the Kensington Hotel and were really impressed with the service and location. On arrival we were given a room that was next to the extract flue at the back of the hotel and it was very noisy. We rang reception and they immediately transferred us to a much better room at the front of the hotel. The staff were attentive but not overbearing. We ordered room service breakfast which was excellent. All in all I would say that it is very good value for a London hotel, in a great location, just a 5 minute walk from the nearest tube station and in a very nice road just next to the Natural History Museum.

I enjoyed my stay at The Kensington.

The hotel staff is terrific -- extremely accomodating, helpful and pleasant. I can't say enough good things about the staff!

I particularly liked the public front parlors/lounge area -- a comfortable place to sit and work or relax.

There are two computers and a printer in an alcove off the lobby, next to the elevators, for guests to use. Very convenient and useful.

Since the hotel is a combination of the three residences, the rooms can vary in size and shape. I had a very nice, spacious room. I did see two rooms, however, on the relatively small side.
