迷路の様なhotel（笑）Posted Jul 30, 2015
今回、定宿で有るコプソーンが取れなかった為、２回目の滞在。 やはり、値段の割には部屋は狭く、１人で有れば...まぁ〜我慢出来るレベル。 立地は最高だが、為替の影響か？少し割高に感じる。 hotelのstaffの対応は隣のコプソーン以上のもてなし。 ただ....何度も言うが部屋は狭い。（笑）

Nice hotel close to the tubePosted Jul 30, 2015
Great hotel in the lovely kensigton area walking distance to a tube station and a supermarket and restaurants. In a safe area also quiet at night and taxis stop in front of the hotel as well

Well-Priced hotel in the centre of LondonPosted Jul 29, 2015
It has a very well-decorated lobby. But the dining and other facilities are not as great. Rooms are quite small and the large room I stayed in had a very inconvenient bathroom.

ExcellentPosted Jul 29, 2015
Pros: The location, helpful staff, cleanliness, beautiful room and comfortable bed.
Location: The hotel is located in close proximity to Kensington High Street tube station and buses and a wide variety of shops and restaurants.
I had a fabulous three night stay at Kensington Close Hotel. The location was great, our executive double room was terrific with an extremely comfortable bed and we had great service from the hotel staff. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Very nice hotel with a great location.Posted Jul 28, 2015
Pros: The location!
Cons: Provide free WiFi.
Location: Close to underground station and many restaurants and shops. Does not take long to hop on the tube to get to any of the major destinations.
My husband and I spent three nights at this hotel. We are in our fifties and we enjoy a quiet, clean, relaxing hotel with a good bed, and this hotel came through. The staff were very helpful. It is a very busy hotel with many people coming and going all the time. This hotel does not offer free WiFi in rooms, only in the business centre. This was disappointing. We used free WIFI when we were out at restaurants etc. As for location, we found it easy to get around since there was an underground station nearby. Also, there were many restaurants and shops nearby. The department stores, like Marks & Spencer's has a cafeteria which came in handy for some of our meals.

Elevated is always waiting. One elevated was out of order and congested always.

Nice looking, but out-of-the-wayPosted Jul 27, 2015
This hotel is seductively nice-looking. It has a slick exterior and is surprisingly large for a London hotel. However, it is far away from everything (the tube stop is a block away -- you'll need it to go anywhere), the room we had was tiny (even by European standards), and the gym that was a big draw for us was an additional 8 pounds per person to access. I woke extra early one morning to catch the gym's 6:15 opening before a busy day of sightseeing, only to find the person who was supposed to open that morning was late. I came back three times in the next hour to see if it was open, and when it finally was, I was told dismissively they opened late today and no, I could not have my 8 pound fee waived for my trouble. Not impressed.

Adequate hotel close to the tube and Kennsington PPosted Jul 27, 2015
Pros: Good location. Close walk to the "tube" and Kensington Gardens and Kensington Palace and Royal Albert Hall.
Cons: More attentive front desk staff!
Location: Kensington Palace, Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Gardens, shopping, restaurants...
We stayed at the hotel for five days while visiting London. We found the rooms and the bed extremely small. Upon arrival late at night, when we checked in, we were given our room key. We were never told that in order to activate the lights, the room key needed to be inserted into a box inside the door. Needless to say, after traveling all day we were exhausted and aggravated at the fact that we were not informed upon check in. Then the room safe was not working and needed to have the battery replaced. This did not leave a good first impression.

Walking distance to subway station.Posted Jul 26, 2015
Pros: Close to subway station.
Cons: The room is too small for comfort-one has to squeeze between the bed to get to the bathroom. The safe box is on the floor!!!
Location: Near Hyde Park
Room was just too small. Only one of two small elevator (6 persons max) is running.
