Rydges Kensington London, London
Good visit
Very convenient location near Gloucester Rd. tube stop, very polite helpful staff, clean room with high ceilings and all the essentials. Good value, right in the part of town I had to be.

Great hotel, great location. Rode underground from & to the airport. Nice variety of restaurants in the area. Bus & underground stations are close. Staff was very knowledgeable & helpful. Room was pretty spacious for European standards, heated towel rack was a nice touch. will definitely recommend to friends, & will stay again.

So So experience
If you want a hotel that is in the middle of the action, this is not for you. Kensington is not mainstream but it's a good safe location away from the fray. There are two train stops close by which makes public transportation convenient. The tube is easy to use. The only complaints I have were the rooms were ridiculously tiny. My wife and I could barely move around in the room without stepping on each other. Also, the breakfast dining area was poorly understaffed. This poor girl who was working the reception area as well as seating and cleaning off tables as patrons rotated was so overwhelmed. I felt so bad for as guests literally were yelling at her. The food also couldn't keep up with the amount of people coming and going. Maybe this was an isolated incident but it was unpleasant none the less.

Good hotel, poor single bed room.
I was in a small single bed room. The single bed was very soft and somewhat out of level. Further, the bed was wedged in among furniture and next to the wall.
