Love this hotel. It is in the middle of Kensington, close to restaurants, pubs, clubs and the tube. Yes the room are not to big, but they are super clean and very comfy. The staff is nice and their breakfast keep you going for the morning. Perfect location for when visiting London.

Ok, so I only gave it three stars. The reason? Because of our room size. It was very small and the bed was too making it not the most comfortable weekend my girlfriend and I have encountered. I'm 17 stone and 6ft 2" tall so not the smallest often! However, the room itself was clean, tidy and had nice decor....

Called here for the night in order to visit The Albert Hall. The hotel room was spotless and very adequate for our needs- the en suite looked newly refurbished. Breakfast( included) was first class and there was plenty . Staff were attentive and friendly and the Manager was really good. Hotel is ideally placed for The Albert Hall and is...

I would endorse everything that has been said by previous travellers. The room was small but big enough for our needs. It was spotless and despite being just across the corridor from reception, very quiet. Through our hobby, geocaching, we found Holland Park and had a lovely walk around there early morning. It was so much larger than we expected,...

I had a fantastic stay here. Yes, the room was a tad small but I had a single so that was to be expected. Luckily, I read the reviews and knew to look for a small doorway off Kensington High Street. By the way, can we just talk about the location for a sec? Two blocks from the Tube and...

For 70 quid, don't go in expecting a big room with a great view in West End near Holland Park, but do be surprised at how nice, modern, and accommodating this hotel is for the price. Tiny rooms best for single, and maybe double occupancy, certainly not a family, but clean, recently remodeled and steps from everything you want. I...

Strange entrance squeezed into High St Ken reveals a bijou hotel behind. Our room had a poor view but was a decent size with good facilities.

Don't be put off by the outside/entrance door. Once up the stairs, this is a gem of a place to stay. The staff are welcoming and obliging and although the room was small, it was extremely well presented had everything that was needed.

I booked this hotel last minute for a one night stay with my 3 year old son. After reading some of the reviews I wasn't expecting much but as I'd only paid a half price room rate I'd decided to make the best of it. I cannot emphasise enough what a great place this turned out to be! Minutes from...

I can't overemphasize how pleasantly surprised I am by the Best Western Seraphine Kensington Gardens. I showed up at 8:00 a.m. off a transatlantic flight assuming I'd be laughed at if I asked if there was a room ready, but with no fuss or sense of duty, I was given a key and soundly napping by 8:15. Seeing how narrow...
