Good location for price and quality, relaxed near
The Kensignton Studios was a nice place to be in London very well located, near to subways stations and bus to move everywhere in town. Quite area, residential, no traffic, close to transportation.

Better then expected
Really exceeded our expectations when it came to room size and condition. Updated high ceiling room on ground floor with brand new bathroom, best rain shower ever had. Very good deal. Would stay again and recommend it. The subway 2 min away only on weekends. Otherwise less then 10 min walk to another line. Bus on same street. But it is 20-30 min walk to where you wanna go, Portobello Rd. & Notting Hill. So not ideal location but happy with the compromise. Thank you to Iuliana and the Italian lady at front desk for useful suggestions.

Avoid this hotel
Avoid this hotel if you can. I travel a lot in the US and international and have gotten to see the good and bad. I don’t give out reviews this bad very often. I had to book this hotel b/c I was attending an event at the nearby Olympia event center and no other hotels were available. The positive was that it was very close to Olympia (under 5 minute walk) and it had good wifi. The negatives were: (*) Light comes pouring into the rooms because they have pretty much zero black out blinds (management, you need to add black out blinds!!). As a result the light would wake me up at 530am even with a sleep mask on. (*) The rooms that face the street are very noisy given the cars that race down the street. Upon checking in I was told not to worry about the street noise because the windows were double-paned. Well, those double-panes did very little. I had to sleep with both earplugs in and also had to use a white noise app on my iPhone. (*) The reception hours are limited. If you arrive past 6pm you have to check in at a sister hotel a few blocks away (*) It is an “apartment” so no room service, breakfast, concierge, 24 hour front desk, etc. I was aware of this going in, but still. It is a pain not to have these things. (*) It has a super small sink. There is nowhere to put any of your toiletry items on the sink. Also splashing water on your face results in water all over your feet and floor
