Checked in early evening noticed that bins in room had not been emptied. This was resolved then we went for an evening meal. Upon our return around midnight we discovered that the bathroom toilet was unserviceable. No other room available so we were transferred from Kensington to a sister hotel in Hammersmith No breakfast or communal area as this is...

The whole experience from check in to check out was a disaster. We arrived on out business trip to be greeted by construction at the reception area. There was no one at the desk to check us in. We needed to find one of the cleaning staff after 15 mins to alert reception that customers were had arrived. Once the...

Stayed here overnight on business. Good location for Kensington. They were doing construction work in the hotel, which meant that I struggled to find reception and access was restricted and a bit weird. Hotel layout in general is a bit weird, random stairs in the middle of a corridor etc. Staff were helpful and decent room. Aircon worked well (which...

I gave stayed here 3 times. On all occasions the staff went out of their way to help. On the last occasion Ines and Florian were exceptional. The location is perfect for getting around and in the heart lots of shops and restaurants. The rooms are smallish, but modern and clean. Breakfast included is a plus. Value for money in...

We stayed here for one night at the end of March to see a show. The hotel is not much to look at from the outside and is situated above a Carphone Warehouse and Nandos. There are two entrances, which we didn't realise initially and used the side entrance with the quirky lift, however, there is another entrance with stairs...

Arrived for my 1st stay at this particular hotel, there is some renovation work currently underway, however don't let that put you off making a reservation The hotel feels fresh and has a modern look. I stay in London for business purposes so generally get a single room, I am not disappointed, yes it's small, however it's beautifully decorated, spotless...

First thing I need to tell you: there are two hotels on the same road called Best Western Seraphine Hotel! This one also has 'Olympia' in the name and is left out of the station and another five minute walk, whereas the other is right out f the station (High Street Kensington). Lots of steps, definitely not great if you...

This is the second time I've stopped at a Best Western Hotel on Kensington High Street. The first time was last February when I stayed at the other end of the High Street, virtually opposite Kensington Gardens. This time, as last, everything was spotlessly clean, tea & coffee making facilities in the room, biscuits and even bottles of water. There...
