Public transportation access is key to me when I look for a hotel in a city because it saves money (car park fees) and reduces stress (a train can't veer off course, of course). The Shepherd's Bush tube station is a short walk from this hotel. Holland Park Avenue is on several bus routes with a stop just steps away from the Hilton London Kensington.
We also discovered so much to do within walking distance of the hotel. When we arrive from the states we like to walk around to stay awake and help ourselves adjust to the time zone. Holland Park is a beautiful place to explore. We found shops, restaurants and cafes everywhere along our route. The Westfield Mall has a variety of restaurants within a 10 minute walk.
Specifically about the hotel - everything was wonderful. The staff were friendly and polite. The breakfast offered a variety of foods to suit British, American and Mediterranean palates. The personable young woman who seats guests was a pleasure. There were plenty of open computers for us to use near the elevator bank, including a printer.
I would not hesitate for a second to re-book this hotel. It has all the attributes I look for when I am traveling.
