When I reviewed this hotel last year, I said that despite a few niggles we would be coming back. Now we've been back and I can report that most of the niggles were not repeated. Perhaps I was listened to. I'd still caution prospective guests to read the website carefully, be clear about what you are getting, particularly room size, and understand that this is not a cheap part of London to stay in. Still a few minor niggles. Why no pen or pencil in the room? They cost about 2p,and I wanted to do the crossword! Room service food is slow (45 min), basic quality,and far from cheap. And only one lift is big enough for my wife's wheelchair. But the staff are always friendly and helpful, so next time we stay in Kensington, it's likely to be at the Close.
