The room was slightly petit but very attractive, modern and clean. The bathroom was a major plus with its superb shower and heated towel rail. The kitchenette and espresso machine was a nice touch. Free wifi was very useful.

About 3mins walk from Earls Court tube but on a fairly peaceful street away the busy main road. We were visiting the Albert Hall and decided to walk and this only took 15mins.

The staff were as you would expect... helpful, welcoming and efficient. Despite being a small/medium sized hotel they still had 24hr reception.

The only down side was the position of our room. The room next door was obviously being used as either a staff room or storage room as staff were going in and out frequently. This did disturb my sleep alot hence why I have not given 5stars. I'm sure all other rooms wouldn't be affected by this and we did book incredibly late.

Overall very good and reasonable rates for Kensington.

We stayed at the Nadler Kensington for one night before Christmas. We chose the location as it was very near the theatre we were going to. Our son lives in London so we are regular visitors and have stayed in a variety of hotels some good some terrible. The Nadler is lovely, located a couple of minutes from the tube station in a quiet street. The Bijou double is compact but perfect for a short stay as we spend little time in the room? The bed was very comfortable, shower/bathroom excellent and everything was spotless. We ate locally and were delighted to receive great discount vouchers for dinner and breakfast in local restaurants. We will be visiting again soon and would definitely stay at the Nadler Kensington again.

This hotel is fantastic the staff are exceptional. When we were told lower ground room I thought great no window but was pleasantly surprised to find we had 2 that looked out onto a little cobbled street I would highly recommend this hotel just 2 min walk from earls court tube and you travel all over London from there very easily thanks for a great few days nadler kensington

First time in London, stayed on recommendation from a friend who was here a few months earlier. He did extensive research, mine was limited but after seeing the prices on really good spots closer in town and the horrible reviews on more reasonably priced places, I decided to go with the Nadler.

Bottom line is, this place is a great deal. It's a block from the Earl's Court station. Couple of good pubs nearby.

Place is charming. Well decorated lobby, quaint. Very friendly staff.

Room size is standard for other European spots I've been in. Definitely not large but not too cramped. There is a kitchenette with espresso machine, fridge, sink and other things. I think the fridge turns off when you leave. This is assuming you pull your room card out of the slot. I guess we could have left one in and used the other card to get in and out of the room. That would certainly ensure the beer and Coke stay cold. When the fridge is on, it is a tad bit on the loud side in case that bothers you. Otherwise the place itself is amazingly quiet. I remember one night getting to bed and thinking that there was no outside noise at all.

Bathroom has a heated towel rack. Wife loved it. Shower was good, nice water pressure. No real shower curtain but a swinging glass door instead that covers only half the length of the tub. Needless to say, this is very conducive to wet floors so be warned.

One of the weird things about the place (not sure about other London spots) is that there is no sheet between you and the bedspread. There is one between you and the bed of course. Not exactly sure how frequently they wash the bedspreads. Otherwise the bed was comfortable.

Wifi is available but at times spotty. Otherwise not a major issue.

There was a safe in the room but we never used it. The previous guest closed the door so I had to get the staff to open it so we could reset the code. However we were gone when they came back by and never followed up so I didn't bother anymore. Didn't have any security issues however.

All in all, an excellent stay. Only a few stops from the heart of London and a very reasonable price.

We had the pleasure to stay at the Nadler for two nights with our 14 month old daughter. Upon arrival we were welcome by Carlos who manage to give us the room at 10am, this was an excellent plus as we could rest a little with our daughter, rather then wait for the afternoon for the room to be ready.
The room itself was perfect, very spacious, clean, with a nice kitchenette. The bathroom was large with a nice tub.
Everything in the hotel is brand new and the staff at the reception is very helpful
The hotel location is just perfect, two minutes walk to Earls court tube station, many restaurants nearby including a good chinese take away that we could eat in our room.
Definitely a perfect hotel, we will go there again.

We stayed at the Nadler Kensington in November 2013 as part of a Living Social offer. The hotel location is great as only a short walk from the tube. First appearances were very good. Hotel was very clean and the staff helpful. We were given a king size room that faced the rear. There was some building work going on to one of the nearby properties but not the hotels fault. Plus the workmen downed tools around 5pm so no real issues. We were upgraded free of charge but the room was still on the small side. But they have used the space well. I particularly enjoyed that the rooms had a coffee machine and a microwave. As we were watching a show in the evening we purchased some microwave meals from M&S located nearby and could consume these in our room to save on time/cost.

The beds were comfortable and air conditioning wasn't noisy. We had breakfast included and this consisted of a breakfast 'box' with a croissant, juice, yoghurt and a few other bits. I would have been disappointed if I had paid full price for the breakfast box. Definitely not worth the £10 (If I Remember Correctly) cost. So many places nearby where you could grab some breakfast.

I would return to the Nadler in future.

Room Tip: Rooms at rear had microwaves/plates/cutlery. Easy to cook something quick and easy in your room for...

This was a fantastic hotel. Only a <5min walk to Earl's Court tube station, and <5min walk to buses on Cromwell Rd. 15min walk to Harrods/South Kensington. Lovely area, felt very safe even late at night and early in the morning. The room was spacious (we had two very large suitcases), elegant and perfect for our 5 night stay. The staff were excellent and helped out in every way they could. Lovely large bathroom with modern fittings; the towels were changed every day. Huge bath and shower. The bed was fantastic, very comfortable and made every day. The cupboard kitchenette was exactly what we needed; just perfect for making coffees, heating up food, making breakfast and quick meals. The interior of the hotel is magnificent; so beautiful and very modern, traditional and stylish. I will definitely recommend this to all family and friends and will absolutely stay here again.
