Hotel London Kensington managed by Meliá, London, United Kingdom

A good experience
Good hotel in excellent position near tube. Clean and pleasant. Only problem was slow lift, and couldn’t use stairs below first floor, as it was blocked off.
A Traveller, auFamily trip
Hotel London Kensington managed by Meliá, London, United Kingdom
Great location but average lodging
Our room was dark and a bit dingy with no view. The windows were single glazed so the area near them was quite cold. This setup needed the aircon on which made for a less than ideal sleep due to the aircon noise and fluctuations in temp. Next to the window was a noisy bit of machinery that was probably the indian restaurant's extraction fan. This was our second stay as the first was good. But given this stay, it will be our last.

Great Hotel close to everything you need.
Great location, Comfortable room, Easy walk (2min) to shops, cafes, restaurants and the Gloucester St tube station. All interactions with Hotel Staff was excellent. Can't speak highly enough of their service. Great job ladies and gentlemen.

Hotel London Kensington managed by Meliá, London, United Kingdom
Fantastic location and value
Friendly and welcoming front desk staff, fantastic location right by the tube, and a clean & neat room. I had one of the cheapest rooms on the 1st floor by the lift but this caused no discomfort at all - no need even for earplugs!

Hotel London Kensington managed by Meliá, London, United Kingdom
Could be better
The breakfast was only passable. The serving area was way too small for the amount of guests using it. There was only one elevator in the hotel which was also used to carry equipment around the hotel, ehich meant that on one occassion we had to use the stairs up four floors to retrieve something when we were going out.
