Reviewed 3 November 2013

Located just off the tube stop at Earls Court, it is a very adequate, no frills hotel that offers the budget traveler great value at a reasonable cost.

The staff at The Nadler are extremely friendly and helpful. I was warmly welcomed upon arrival and though a little too early for my room to have been ready I was immediately offered the option of stowing my luggage till such a time I could be properly accommodated.

There are public computer terminals in the lobby for general use or wifi connectivity is also available at no extra charge. And for nourishment/entertainment, there are several decent restaurants and bars in the area as well. Tip: for simple, scrumptious fare, give Ballans (a short distance away on foot) a go.

Rooms are on the smaller side but comfortable enough. I'd initially been assigned a room on the lower level but asked for reassignment because of the poor lighting (something to be cognizant of) and was easily accommodated.

Great service. Friendly staff. Very conveniently located and good value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms on the lower level offer little light. Ask to be roomed on the main or upper floors.

Hi Parlonny, thanks for your detailed review. Happy to see you loved our suggestions; Balans is great and one of our favourite restaurants too, and offers our guests discounts too. I am pleased that our responsive and supporting staffs promptly relocated you to a room of your choice. I would add that our lower ground floor rooms with patio gardens are very popular in summer, so if you return then, you may want one! Please take a look at our website for more information on different rooms and sizes. We look forward to seeing you back soon.

Stayed in the Kensington Nadler from 21st to 26th October 2013. On arrival the staff were very friendly and took our bags to the room. There was also two small bottles of Bellini in an ice bucket awaiting us. Two free soups had been provided which were in the fridge. These were just OK. The Microwave turntable turned erratically and was noisy so we immediately reported it. Someone from reception came up straight away to check it but maintenance had gone home so it was booked in for repair the next day. The next day the maintenance man took away the rotating stand leaving the glass plate stationary which I suppose is acceptable, but we could have done that ourselves? The Superior King/Twin room was very nice, good size bathroom but living area small and we wish we had gone for something bigger. We were on honeymoon and had hoped perhaps for an upgrade to a larger room but it wasn't to be. The bath was very slippery and we had to ask for a mat which was provided. We think that there should be a handle on the wall as well as it is easy to slip and there is nothing to hold onto if you do, the glass screen does not lock so that wouldn't save you from a nasty fall. Overall we were pleased with our stay and the accessibility to local shops and Earls Court tube was excellent. The room is expensive for what it is at £1,049 for 5 nights I think but London is expensive and this is a nice area with good quality accomodation and very friendly staff, unlike some other hotels we have stayed at. We would stay again, possibly try the Soho site as nearer to the action but it would depend on whether we could afford it.

Hi Peter H, thanks for staying with us and congratulation for your honeymoon! It sounds as though, overall, you had a great stay with us at The Nadler Kensington. Apologies about the minor glitches with the microwave, if we could, we would have fix it right away. If we had any availability, we would have loved to have upgraded you, but we hope the Bellinis and soup brought a little smile. Please take a look at our website for the different room types and prices both here and in Soho in order that you can book your perfect room for your next visit. If you book well in advance, you can get some great rates. We look forward to seeing you back soon.

Close to Earls Court station we were able to use the underground directly from Heathrow . No need to pay more for the Express service . Lifts are situated at Earls Court station making it easy to move luggage.
Although the room was a little small, the bed was very comfortable and the room well equipped and spotless.
The staff were wonderful . We enjoyed having drinks with the manager one evening and were delighted with the bottle of champagne delivered to our room the next day.
Although the hotel doesn't have its own dining facilities it offers discounts to a variety of nearby restaurants . We found the food at all of these extremely good.
This hotel is situated in a beautiful area with surrounding gardens and if you are fairly fit within walking distance to museums such as the Victoria and Albert.

Excellent, with high standards of facilities and extremely efficient, friendly and helpful staff. Pleasant and quiet location, convenient to Earls Court Tube Station, and for our purpose, the Royal Albert Hall. Close to High Street shops and variety of restaurants. Would certainly return for next stay in London and would recommend. Also good value for money.

Room Tip: Our room was very quiet and restful.

It's a very lovely hotel, good design, staff very friendly and helpful.
The room we had was spacious, as well as the bathroom.
Overlooking the back gardens provided us quietness and serenity.
The little kitchen is wonderful.
The Earl's court station is very close.
We will definitely come back.

We stayed here for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the room of a high standard. We had been warned that London hotel rooms were tiny and although this was not massive, we had enough room to leave 2 suitcases open and still be able to move around freely. The kitchenette was a massive bonus - having a fridge and microwave made life so much easier. The close proximity to the tube station made our travel to London sightseeing a breeze. A good choice of pubs cafes and restaurants all within a short walk.

Situated in a pleasant and quiet street close to Earls Court Road, the tube and buses. Our room was clean and well equipped but on the small side (small double). There was a small kitchenette including fridge, microwave and sink plus a few plates and cutlery which was useful. Staff were friendly and helpful.
