The Tiger Bar which is located in Kensington House Hotel is the most ideal place to relax in after a hard day's work. Augmented by attentive and affable service, having a chilled glass of wine at the bar is well worth it. It's not that much more expensive than any other hotel-house red costing a fiver.They do have a well stocked bar and I suppose one of the benefits of being located in a posh hotel is the comfort of its surroundings and having a bevy of waiters at your beck and call. If I am going to meet any of my colleagues from work then we usually meet here because there is masses of room and the food in the restaurant is also good.
I was lucky enough to stay here when I was in town for biz last March.
An absolutely sparkling clean gorgeous hotel with massive, comfy beds, flat screens, a small but useful gym, & Molton Brown toiletries. The staff was perfectly attentive and helpful and more than polite.
I like the hidden bar in back of the lobby (with pricey but boozy drinks) and the art gracing the walls made this space feel particularly snazzy.
Very, very conveniently located near the High Street Line. I'd happily stay here again when I'm in town... if the pocketbook allows.
Extremely well-located, this hotel is smack in the middle of Kensington in central London and at the southern border of Hyde Park. There are a few tube stops in close proximity, and buses galore right outside your door. On top of that, take a step outside, and you'll already be mere steps away from the shopping of High Street Kensington and a short hop away from Notting Hill and Hugh Grant's famous floppiness (whether that be a reference to his hair or....other parts....shall remain unnamed).
I really enjoyed being in a townhouse hotel because it felt charmingly intimate, and not in a "everyone's in each other's business" way, either. The staff was professional and gracious, and they even gave me a coupon for a free drink at the hotel's bar. There's also complimentary continental breakfast, which, in the land of unfavorable exchange rates, is a very good thing.
Finally, the pricing is awesome. As a solo traveler who is not keen on hostels (well, shared room hostels, anyway), I always have a hard time finding affordable housing accommodations. Thankfully, Kensington House Hotel offers a single room option (twin bed) at a reasonable rate of 99 squids a night. Jolly good! They also do not skimp on the furnishings. Despite its petite size, the room was lovely and welcoming, just like me! ;) j/k
All in all, recommended with pleasure. :)
I stayed at the Royal Gardens during my last business trip, but this time around I ended up staying at the Kensington House Hotel due to how last minute my trip was and the cost. The staff are very nice & the ambiance is very cute/quaint. I really liked this hotel over Royal Gardens as it's not your typical hotel. The only con I would have to mention is that the wifi is very slow and sometimes, I had to flush the toilet 3 times. Overall though, I would book this hotel again over the Royal Gardens. It's very clean and it's as if I was home.
