I was very anxious about this establishment as the rental was so affordable. I was delightfully surprised when I arrived. As many of the reviews indicated - this is an excellent, spacious, clean, warm place to stay. I was in London for business and the studio was perfect. While there is no easy chair in the room, the comfort level...

Just had the one night as we were attending a convention at Olympia for two days. The room was small, but perfectly fine for one night, and very very clean. Only a five minute walk to Olympia, so the location was perfect for us. There was everything we needed in the room, including fridge, tea, coffee, mini kitchen, TV etc,...

Arrived early on the Sunday and staff were very helpful and allowed us access to our room to store our luggage.

I very much enjoy being at the prpoerty, near many transportation points, and has the advantage to walk to West Field shopping center. The only issue is that I've requested twin bed room but they give us a double one but they solve it with bringing extra bed to the room as the room was spacious.

Finally found hotel, after first arriving at the Kensington Suites just up the road.....my error, but at least they had a name outside! First impressions good, although surprised that we'd been given twin beds when I'd specified double. The kitchen area very well hidden and great if staying a few days. However, the shower room was very dirty in the...

I booked Kensington Studios for my husband and son who were working in London for the week. The room was clean, modern and well appointed. There was a mix up over the rooms initially, but Corinna on reception went out of her way to apologise and sort out the problem and couldn't have been more helpful.
