My family and I visited London and chose The Kensington Hotel as our place to stay this time. I have no words to describe the warmth and care the staff here have provided us through the entire stay.
We want to thank everyone who has gone above and beyond to make our stay comfortable.
I would like to acknowledge
1) Miss Almire: She is a perfect host and thought of every detail including for our twins. She thought about a fun night theme for the kids and made it absolutely memorable with gifts, popcorn and foot tapping music. Kids had a blast. Almire is absolutely a joy and gem to this establishment.
2) Mr. Thomas Keating: He is such a wonderful manager. He made us feel special everyday. He showed through his actions how much he cared. He along with Miss Almire made our kids have that extra special night of fun. We are absolutely overjoyed seeing this hospitality.
3) Mr. Emiliano: He is one of the most organized persons I have come across. He organized all of our day trips and took extra care to help us with it. Thank you so much.
4) Mr. Mario: He went out of his way everyday to ensure we had the best transportation. He was extremely attentive to our needs. He would greet us with a smile every time we walked in and out which made it so nice. He is extremely courteous.
5) Mr. Pavel: Another wonderful person in the organization who helped us along with Mr. Emiliano. Always with a smile. He even advised my husband regarding getting wonderful shoes.
6) Ms. Genesis: I had been communicating with Ms. Genesis regarding organizing a high tea for me and my friends. She was so patient with my planning and helped me get it done. Thank you!
7) Mr. Mateo: He is a thorough gentleman. My friends and I will always remember how he helped procure us vegetarian dishes for the afternoon tea in a matter of minutes.
8) Mr. Gurcan: Always helpful and attentive with a smile. Very courteous.
9) Front desk reception: Every single member of the team is outstanding.
9) Housekeeping: Absolutely fantastic.

Thank you again for creating this absolutely wonderful place for travelers and taking into account every detail to make our stay an enjoyable and memorable experience. Look forward to coming back here again.

For decades we have been visiting London and have over the past few years based ourselves in this hotel.
Apart from being in an ideal location in the city it is within walking distance of some of the greatest places to visit in London viz National History Museum, V and A, Brompton Oratory, Harrods, and many more.

If staying in the hotel on a Friday do take the complimentary hotel provided one hour tour of the area.

The rooms are modern and depending on price generally to a high standard.

The staff are without doubt the most helpful and friendly that you can expect. They are the real gem of the very good services, food and beverages available in the hotel.

The concierge Vincent and duty manager Loretta Hendriks are the best we have ever encountered on many trips to a multitude of other cities in the World.

TIP - get a price before committing to buy accommodation- you may be surprised at the value you can negotiate!

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Kensington, our room (four poster suite) was comfortable, a decent size, and all amenities you could need. The bathroom was of good size, and clean, the toiletries available are also lovely, so much so we have purchased them to use at home. What really makes this hotel though is the staff, they are courteous, polite and so so helpful nothing is too much trouble.
The only thing we didn’t enjoy was eating here, not because of the good that is very good but eating a meal at from a sofa or lounge chair with a low table was not particularly comfy especially when you are tall. Was great for sandwiches and light bites but not for a meal requiring cutlery.
The hotel location is great for exploring, walking distance to history and science museum, the v & a, short taxi ride to oxford street, Piccadilly, and Covent garden (approx £20) We walked to Harrods and Harvey Nichols and stopped at some of the Lovely cafes and cake shop along route (without stopping would take approx 25-30 minutes at a leisurely pace).
Hotel also offered us umbrellas to use while out for the day as rain was predicted.
We used the car park recommend by hotel, some spaces are quite tight but it really does depend on what’s left when you arrive as how you’d find it, close proximity though meaning we could drop our shopping off easily at our car rather than having to checkout with our regular luggage and shopping all at once.
Before booking I called reception with a few questions, about room selections, dietary requirements, the receptionist was fab answered all my questions, helped me choose a room, and then worked out which was best deal to use for our length of stay to maximise value for money. I definitely recommend booking directly via telephone.

The room was extremely bland with no pictures and the view was terrible. There was a rattling noise from our AC unit that also vented over the bed which is extremely unpleasant. The direction of the door opening was ridiculous. The bathroom was poorly grouted and not refurbished (as we were told when we checked in), the shower door did not seal so water went all over the bathroom floor. The shower needed descaling, there was no handheld shower. The lighting was really poor - to have the bedside lights and ceiling lights not independently controlled is not what you'd expect from a deluxe room in a 5 star London hotel - it's just cheap. The plug sockets in the headboard moved. The tap water was horrible and undrinkable. Noisy doors. The wrong breakfast was delivered and the breakfast was a really poor standard. When we both ordered coffee with our breakfast we did not expect two cold cups of coffee to arrive. Surely for the class of hotel and location you could stretch to providing a cafetiere! The channels loaded on the tv itself were incorrectly listed. How on earth you can class our room as a deluxe in a 5 star London hotel is absurd!

The Kensington can simply be described as ‘perfect’. This is how I would sum up our welcome and stay throughout. My Mum and I stayed for two nights as we wanted to be in the vicinity of the Royal Albert Hall, where we were booked to see Luzia. On arrival we were kindly upgraded to a family room and on being shown our room, I was delighted to discover Prosecco and macaroons which my Mum had ordered as a celebratory surprise for my birthday. The room was generous in size and has clearly just been refurbished. Everything felt new and fresh. The beds and pillows were divine and we enjoyed two restful nights sleep. Staff were attentive, courteous and helpful at all times, making us feel very welcome. The hotel has a beautiful scent too. Turns out you can buy the fragranced candles they burn too. On checking out the staff kindly stored our bags until we needed them later that afternoon.
This is a hotel that prides itself in getting things right at all levels and I am confident that it will not disappoint. It is one of the ‘very best hotels’ that I have had the good fortune to stay at around the world. Book it! You will not be disappointed!

My family and I stayed for my belated 30th birthday celebrations. Our stay was out of this world and all staff made me as well as my family super special. On arrival, we received attentive service by all staff and we instantly received bottles of sparkling water, a hot towel and hand sanitizer.

We stayed in the family room which was incredibly spacious, the decor was spectacular and so well put together. We received a lovely card from the hotel team, welcoming us and wishing me a very happy birthday and a nice stay. Once settled, we had a knock at the door and was welcomed with a birthday surprise. A slice of birthday, chocolates and a yellow rose. I also received a happy birthday song too.

Our dining experience was great as well. Our waitress was attentive and very knowledgeable on the menu. The quality of the food was amazing and we celebrated my birthday accordingly.

When we arrived back to our room, we were welcomed with a flask of hot water and cups of chamomile tea which was a lovely and unexpected touch.

The beds were comfy and we slept exceedingly well. We also had breakfast at The Kensington which was amazing too. The selection of food, continental and the full English breakfast, was immense and everything we ordered was at a high quality standard and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

All staff we spoke to were incredibly friendly, informative and knowledgeable on the hotel.

Our whole experience was memorable and something we shall be reminiscing about. We thoroughly loved our stay at the hotel and we are looking forward to staying here again soon. We couldn't recommend this hotel experience more!

My partner and I stayed at The Kensington for 1 night in August 2021. We had very high expectations for this hotel having read previous reviews and heard a lot about the hotel online and our stay far exceeded such expectations; it was nothing short of brilliant!

The hotel itself is located close to all local attractions. Interiors of the hotel are elegant and exude a subtle sense of luxury. Our room (which was kindly upgraded for free upon arrival) featured plush decor, with an ornate bathtub in the bedroom and a gorgeous marble bathroom suite.

Dining at The Kensington was equally brilliant; we dined in the outdoor area known as The Veranda and while it is off of the main road area, it was nonetheless a very enjoyable and fashionable experience. There is an extensive all-day menu and drinks list. Breakfast was served in The Drawing Room and was amazing - by far one of the best hotel breakfasts that I have experienced!

Staff at The Kensington were constantly eager to assist me and knew me by name upon seeing and greeting me each and every time. Our room was also serviced multiple times throughout the day, with complimentary treats such as a fruit platter and a note left in the room ready for our return.

I extend my warmest thanks to Karan and Ronnie for their absolutely fabulous customer service and kind-natured welcomes that we constantly received throughout the day. They are truly exemplary of what it means to provide luxury, warm, and friendly service to fellow guests.

Just completed our stay and was thrilled with all aspects of our stay. The staff is incredibly accommodating and gave outstanding recommendations and service—especially the Concierge,Curtis McCalla). The hotel is really clean and the maid service is so welcoming at the end of the day. The town of South Kensington is a perfect location outside of the hustle and bustle of the center of London but easily accessible by the tube a few blocks away. Also, great stores and restaurants a few steps away to meet every need!

We loved The Kensington Hotel from the moment we walked in! We were warmly greeted at the front desk and given a room right away, even though we arrived before noon. The hotel was created from the renovation of four separate 19th century, Regency styled townhouses and so the public spaces felt like cozy lounges in a private home. The designers fused period and modern furnishing with beautiful art and fixtures. Our room was very spacious, especially by European standards and included a gorgeous marble bath with huge shower. We decided to have the afternoon Tea and it was fantastic! The food included delicious amuse-bouches, tasty sandwiches and because it was Easter, holiday themed desserts. The service was outstanding – they were always immediately at hand but never hovering. The breakfast (which was included in the stay) provided both cold and hot items, including a traditional full English breakfast. Overall, it was a fantastic experience at a beautiful property in a wonderful neighborhood!

We were booked for 1 night for our 10th wedding anniversary and all the staff we encountered helped to make this the most special anniversary ever.

Pricilla was amazing at check in, so welcoming and nice. The water and bag with antibacterial wipes and hand sanitiser is a nice touch. We were lucky enough for the room to be upgraded to a 4 poster, the room was so beautiful and a joy to stay in. The bed was the most comfortable I have stayed in while in a hotel.

Thomas brought us champagne to the room was a highlight. We really enjoyed talking to him and learning a bit more about the decor of the room. He also spotted us at dinner and came to check on us which was a lovely touch.

The 2 gentleman and lady who were serving in the restuarant that night were so attentive and friendly and helped make the dinner even more amazing than it already was. The food was quite honestly the best I've ever tasted and I can't wait to try the afternoon tea next time! I can really recommend the cornish sole and lemon cheesecake. They also brought us a lovely chocolate cake slice to celebrate our anniversary.

The turndown service was also lovely to come back to after dinner. The camomile tea is a lovely extra.

We had a gorgeous cooked breakfast in the room the following morning which was perfect.

The gentleman who checked us out was also beyond lovely offering us an umbrella or to call us a taxi as it was raining when we left.

I have stayed in a few hotels in London over the years but have never felt so special or that I would love to come back until we stayed here. I cannot wait to be able to return to The Kensington as the service was outstanding and I can't recommend enough that this is the place to stay if you want a truly special experience.
Thank you again and we look forward to coming back again soon.

I am unable to answer to the question about the airco but anyhow ask for a room located on the front side of the hotel and not giving on the rear court where the air filters and kitchen machinery are. This hotel is not free of sound and maybe not convenient for sound sensitive people.
