First off: My ratings reflect the unfortunate fact that the hotel is undergoing a massive refurbishment, so many areas are a work in progress, and the restaurants were closed. That said, it will be finished in October, and promises to be splendid. The location is great with Gloucester Road Tube station almost on the doorstep (and buses ON the doorstep!) and there are plenty of shops and eateries within quick walking distance... and the V&A, Albert Hall and the Natural History Museum are found after a comfortable stroll. Do ask the staff for recommendations-- they are very kind. My main niggle with my stay seems to be a glitch with Expedia. I had booked a "room with a view" standard double as advertised on the website, but when I arrived, I was given a lower ground floor room-- even though I had specifically requested NOT to be put in the basement! The hotel was full, and they couldn't move (upgrade) me until the second night, so I didn't bother for the sake of a 2-night stay. Fun fact: ALL of the standard doubles are located on the lower level (although there will be some on upper floors after the renovations). That said, my room was huge by London standards, very clean and ultra-quiet... the biggest on that level. The staff are excellent and cannot do enough for you. Thanks, all! I'm sure this place will be wonderful after all the work is over, and I would stay again. *If you like Italian food, try Da Marios nearby!

I was very impressed with the Hotel London Kensington. I booked my rooms months in advance and they were very reasonable, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The lobby was modern, clean and welcoming. The staff were friendly and helpful. I booked a family room and a double room. The family room was a good size. We did not utilize the small sofa as a bed, so I'm not sure about the comfort of it, but the bed was very comfortable. The rooms were air conditioned, which was a plus in summer. The other standard room was very spacious and appeared to be recently remodeled. The hotel is undergoing renovations, but it didn't interfere with our stay. The Hotel is extremely close to the Tube and there are numerous cafes and restaurants in the area. I would definitely stay here again.
