Just a few yards from Gloucester Road tube and ideally located for the major museums. Fresh, well appointed rooms. Would stay again.

Room was well furnished and clean.Tube station 100 yards away linked directly to Heath Row and st pancreas for Eurostar and bus outside door.Although we booked and paid some months in advance wewere given a basement room .Unfotunatly the corridor outside the room smelled badly.Charging for wifi was a bit over the top as it was freely available in all the pubs and cafe,s along the road outside.

Great hotel in great location. 2 minutes from Tube Stn. Staff very good particularly at reception. Restaurant was very ordinary though there were plenty of choices in the vicinity. The only other complaint was that wireless internet was charged for whereas most places nowadays supply it for free. There are 2 Starbucks within minutes which have free Wi-Fi. Reception did print our Boarding Passes for free which was a plus. In summary we found the hotel excellent and would certainly recommend it to others.

Smallish hotel in a great location. Recently refurbished with top notch furnishing including the bath and bed. Rooms are small, typical for London, but adequate for pleasure trip where little time is spent in your room. Close to restaurants, pubs, tube station, banks and short walking distance to many famous London attractions. A little pricy for what you get, but exchange rate has to be considered. I would highly recommend this hotel, and would definitely stay there again on my next trip to London.

Very convenient in London city centre with the tube station just across the road. Room was very clean and the hotel staffs were very helpful and friendly. We would like to stay again at Rydges Kensington during our future visits to London.

The ground floor of the hotel hides a multitude of sins, the rooms are too hot and shabbyand the hallways smell as if someone has been sick, breakfast is the worst that I have had, it a continental but not as we know it, its really just toast and cereal.

Excellent position....2 min walk from Gloucester Rd tube, and on 49 bus route which we used frequently. Plenty of places to eat & drink within 2 min walk. Had 1 breakfast & dinner on Sunday evening both fine with plenty of choice. Yes we would happily stay there again.

The hotel was in a very nice area, very busy traffic all the time. I thought breakfast was included, unfortunately not, so maybe a bit dear just for a room. Staff were friendly.

Beautiful hotel, amazing entrance foyer, bar and breakfast room. I had a single room which was very small and could get any hot water from the shower. Pressure in the taps were bad also. Overall lovely place to stay and great location near the tube and facilities.

I was a bit surprised by the standard of the rooms, but it was clean and had an air condition system which I thought was very positive. Breakfast was so-so, did expect more to be honest. Was relieved to see that there was an elevator in the hotel. All in all, a nice hotel, and I would stay there again.

The hotel is in a good location, however it is a very old hotel in need of a renovation. The internet and local phones call charges were very expensive here. There was only one lift which was very slow.

The room was immaculate and attractively furnished but small. The location was outstanding. We appreciated the in-room coffee and tea and the mini-fridge. We would definitely stay there again.
