Great location and nice room

Comfort, quality, and location - worth it!
We stayed at Ridges for a conference that was held at the Millennium Gloucester Conference venue. Ridges was a wonderful, less expensive (than the Millennium) alternative, yet it still maintained high quality and comfort. Location was super convenient just across the road from the Gloucester Rd underground station, and surrounded by cafes, restaurants, coffee shops, pubs, etc. Hyde Park was a short walk away as well in a lovely neighborhood. Our rate included a generous continental breakfast. Would most definitely stay here again.

Good visit
Very convenient location near Gloucester Rd. tube stop, very polite helpful staff, clean room with high ceilings and all the essentials. Good value, right in the part of town I had to be.

Rydges Kensington London
All very friendly and efficient apart from the KEYCARD system which required very careful application of the cards to doors and LIFT control in order to make them work - nuisance! Had to get one of my cards changed since it would not operate room door.

Good location
Good quality room, hotel close to restaurants / pubs & excellent position for transport links. However, make sure you are sitting down when you read the mini bar price list!!
