Positive Reviews


Contemporary accommodation in historic building.

Kensington House was built in the mid 1860’s and occupies space in one of the oldest neighbourhoods in London. The current owners have kept many of the original features including the balustrade and staircase and the original ceiling mouldings, giving visitors a true sense of the period.


Stylish rooms with every convenience.

All 41 rooms feature modern décor and furniture to contrast the classic construction. Guests enjoy every modern convenience including room safes, direct dial phones with voicemail, free Wi-Fi, hair dryers, coffee makers, TV, alarm clock/radio, complimentary mineral water, bathrobes, towels and free toiletries.


Perfect base for exploring London.

The property is ideally situated close to Kensington Road as well as Kensington Gardens and Kensington Palace. There are plenty of cultural attractions and iconic shops in the area including the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Science Museum, Natural History Museum, Harrods, Harvey Nichols and hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars along the high street.

Negative Reviews


Lack of modern windows and soundproofing.

The hotel has retained much of its original period features including the Victorian Style windows. The lack of modern double glazing makes for a somewhat noisy stay with a fair amount of construction work and renovations going on in the area during the day, and the traffic of people going out at night.


Choose your en-suite wisely.

All rooms are with en-suite facilities however, not all en-suites feature a bath. Some of the hotel guest room en-suite facilities are shower only, so if a bath tub is important it may be worth ensuring that your booking reflects this feature.


Not close to the tube station.

The property is quite close to Kensington Road but about six or seven blocks or about a 10 to 15 minute walk from High Street Kensington tube station.
