We went to London to see a gig on the 12th July, and decided on the hotel Kensington due to the great online reviews. Despite being a little more than we wanted to pay, the hotel was in such a great location we booked 1 nights stay. As soon as we arrived, we were made to feel welcome and attended to without the service being overpowering. Unfortunately, the 1st room we were given was a real disappointment. The air con being located right by the window so it was very noisy and the room was smaller than we anticipated. My husband called the desk and explained the problem. They said they'd imeadiately move us to another room, and do we want someone to pack our bags for us!
I was thrilled with the 2nd room, it was exactly as I had hoped. If you are spending a couple of nights in London I would urge you to book this hotel. Perfect location( natural history museum/ Victoria & Albert/ Hyde park and Knightsbridge just minted away ) but more importantly a lovely, friendly, classy hotel. 10/10!
