Kensington visit.
Location.. location! Came to be near my granddaughter who is studying there at Boston University Wonderful pubs and shops within walking distance. Lobby and social rooms were wonderful! Staff alert to our needs! Great! Upstairs halls very narrow....Our room was pricey considering huge vents outside our room in action 24/7. I would stay again... and speak up about the vents!

The Kensington Hotel, London
Good location, good rooms.
The hotel improved over the years as far as quality of rooms. The breakfast however felt that decayed a bit. Service was so so, requires me to call folks to get more coffee. Also the eggs etc somewhat dry. For the price I paid I rather stay at ham yard. However I love the location of Kensington hotel
