Very expensive hotel but not 5 star. The bathroom was teeny tiny barely big enough to hold 2 people. There was no light over the sink and it was not so easy to see. The light was not burned out. There was no light even there.

We had an amazing stay at the Kensington Hotel. The hotel itself is beautiful and very well decorated. The location is very convenient for those interested in the museums and parks. Everyone was incredibly helpful and nice. The closest subway station is about 8 minutes walk from the hotel. Please note this is an American reviewer :) one comment to note is that the rooms are small. I booked a Classic Room. Not a big deal but something to keep in mind when picking the type of room you want to stay in.

Pampered
Very warm, welcoming staff, personalized service, went the extra mile to ensure I was satisfied. The best service I’ve ever had at a hotel. As a solo woman traveler I felt completely comfortable and taken care of. The location is perfect - near restaurants, pubs, the underground. Hyde Park is in walking distance as are s number of great museums. The hotel is elegant and serene. My room was well-appointed but very small. If large rooms are what you want, make sure to request one of the larger ones.
