Ok stay

Would not recommend Mon 29 Feb 2016
The hotel reception/lobby area is very nice. The corridors and rooms are all nice and clean. Staff were lovely and location was great for shopping and tubes. On the downside the first problem was the car park really needs some sort of warning on the way in as the ramp down scrapped the bumper of our car. We opened the door to our room and it slammed straight into the wall as there was a really tight little corridor leading into the tiny room, It was a nice room but bathroom and room it's self were just so small. Lastly the aircon/heating system in the room made an annoying humming all through the night which drove me nuts, would have called to sort the problem but we got back to the room and discovered it quite late that night.

London stay at the Hilton Kensington

Would recommend Sun 17 Aug 2014
Our stay was very comfortable. The staff was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. The location was very good for us and near where our daughter was staying for the summer. The price was very reasonable for the amenities available. All-in-all, I would recommend this hotel for the Kensington area.

Time saver

Inquire about where you want to go and decide on transportation method before you leave the hotel. London is a big place and the maps are somewhat deceptive as to distance. Walking can be long and painful if you misjudge the distance.

Safe, Clean, Quiet Neighborhood

Would recommend Wed 22 Jan 2014
I spent 4 nights at the London Kensington Hotel with my boyfriend on vacation. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The concierge was extremely knowledgeable and the bellhop wouldn't even let us carry our bags out of the taxi we arrived in. Staff at the front desk, bar, and restaurant were extremely nice too. The room itself was bigger than we imagined. Europe hotels are known to Americans as small and this was average in size - about the same as what you'd expect in NYC. The chambermaid kept it clean and replaced towels and sheets every day. The hotel is conveniently located in between 2 tube stops on the Central line. However, they are far out towards the end of zone 2. Not in a convenient place to walk and see anything, but a quick ride to the nearest attraction. With an underground day pass, you're good to see anything and will be able to get around London quick. Definitely would stay here again and would recommend to anyone traveling to London. It is affordable compared to other hotels. However, as a chain, it lacks the London "charm" one might be looking for, but we were willing to sacrifice that for good service, safe neighborhood, and convenience.

First time in London

Would recommend Sat 11 Jan 2014
It was my mother's and I first time in London. I choose this hotel because of the name Hilton. I knew I couldn't go wrong and I didn't. We stayed 7 nights. It's a great location. Only several blocks away from the underground tube. Also, if you want to do a sight seeing bus tour, the bus stops right in front of the hotel. The hotel staff were very friendly. They answered my questions about how to get around the city. Also helped me with booking any sight seeing trips. They have computer stations that are free to use. Overall, I love the location. I felt safe to walk around even at night.

Attractions

If you don't have a lot of time I would suggest taking the tube to get around the city. Its quick and easy. You'll save time rather than riding the bus. If you are wanting to do the Warner Bros. Harry Potter Tour and the staff tell you its booked. You can go to a souvenir shop that is directly in front of the British Museum. They sell tickets there. That is where I bought mine on a last minute situation.

Rooms fine/Food very poor

Would not recommend Thu 16 Feb 2012
I was offered the 3 course dinner for £19 and what a poor choice! Starter of Beetroot and cheese was ok, pasta main was awful (overcooked mush) the waiter did offer something else but I didnt feel like it... Toffee pudding was fine, but poor vale for £19 (plus £7 for a glass of house white...) - better dinner options at Holland Park or even Westfield! Room was very loud and parking is v expensive at £32 per night...

Very good

Would recommend Fri 13 May 2011
The hotel was very clean and new. The room had everything you need all in good condition, coffee, tea, hot pot, large flat screen TV. The breakfast was a large English breakfast all you can eat, very good. The location is good. We had 2 nights and one day. We got the hop on hop off bus at the hotel at 8:15am, did the compleat tour then went again got off at the London Eye. Then did a cruise on the Thames, that came with the bus trip. The price of the hotel with breakfast was great. Free internet to print airport boarding pass would be helpful. The staff would not do it. J.R. Tampa Florida USA

Just ok

Would recommend Mon 7 Mar 2011
The hotel was OK. Room was reasonably clean. It had a flat screen but it only had 3 channels. The breakfast was an absurd 20GBP. Staff was relatively polite. It close to Shepherd's Bush station with is Zone 2, so you do need transportation to get to the city's attractions.
