The staff and room were great. Disappointed with things like the hair dryer not being in front of a mirror, salt and pepper shakers always empty, but would recommend.

ideal location

The room was booked for 4 adults but they gave us one for 3&1/2 persons at the beginning. I saw that happen to another family when they arrived 2 days after us. Fortunately the staff was super, kind, helpful and did their absolute best to make up for all the shortcomings that came up. TV never worked, cleaning ladies propably cannot distinguish btw "do not disturb" and "pls make my room". Message to the management : Cherish the employees, they keep the business going. Great location is not going to do it.

Too much too deal with, both the staff and us… not good!

We booked 4 rooms. First of all, the electricity was gone at the 4th floor the entire evening. My father and them had a terrible time without any electricity. We got one bed too few. The staff was not willing to give us money back for the booking mistakes done by the hotel (overbooked too many guests), but instead we got free breakfast. We were 3 persons sharing double-bed, too small. The batth was not clean. The rest ok. Not noisy, good location, close by subway and some other facilities close by (food store, restaurants, hair dresser).

Bad value for money

Was very disappointed with my stay here unfortunately. . The room was so small with hardly any space at all to put your luggage. The bathroom was about as big as a postage stamp, so wasnt easy getting washed and showered in the morning. The location of the hotel was ideal if you wanted to visit the museums or chelsea shopping. But then again if you can afford to shop in chelsea you wouldn't being staying at the Kensington rooms hotel. The staff need to brush up on their customer service skills and maybe there English skills as well. Im sorry to say not a great experience staying here and I wouldn't return in a hurry or recommend it unfortunately. ... sorry...

can't recommend this hotel

Staff unfriendly and not helpful at all. Room was absolutely NOT clean. Rooms do not look like the pictures at all. Street noise very loud, no air conditioning, so either noise or sticky room. We can't recommend this hotel, bad value for your money.
