Very nice place to stay

Simple and clean on Kensington High St.
Hotel was clean, and service was generally helpful although riddled with small gaffes, like mistagged luggage that was lost for a few minutes, and room service that was delivered but without a tray to carry it into the room. Hotel is in an excellent location - for those looking for nothing more than a place to sleep that’s clean, the price is right and this property fits the bill. Lots of dining, shopping, sightseeing and entertainment right next to the hotel, and quick, easy access to the rest of London from the tube.

A gem in the heart of the City.
Loved the atmosphere. A gem in the centre of the City. Well kept, wonderful accommodating staff - nice rooms.

Room smaller than a cruise ship's stateroom
Our room was smaller than the room we had on a cruise ship several years ago. We had to put our suitcases in the very narrow walkway and move them to open the door. It was very cramped and uncomfortable.

My stay at Holiday Inn Kensington
The rooms were very clean, but small in size. The service was very good. It was well within walking distance of Kensington Palace, the park and tons of stores. Whole Foods is in the neighborhood, so we could always find food on the go. It is located in a beautiful neighborhood!
