The Kensington Hotel
(Kensington) 5 5 Star:
A stunning hotel situated in the beautiful South Kensington neighbourhood, just minutes from excellent shopping at Harrods and the Kings Road. Three of the city’s greatest museums are literally around the corner and major tourist attractions such as Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park and Westminster Abbey are also within walking distance.
Set in the heart of one of London’s most desirable neighbourhoods, The Kensington’s grand stucco façade is characteristic of this affluent 19th Century district, which is home to cultural treasures like the Natural History Museum, the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Royal Albert Hall, with the green spaces of Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park and world-famous stores such as Harrods and Harvey Nichols only a short walk away. With open fires found in nearly all the hotel’s ground floor reception rooms, entering The Kensington feels rather like walking through the doors of a lovingly restored London mansion. High ceilings and heritage décor evoke a sense of Victorian grandeur, while the hotel’s famously warm and engaging service creates a relaxed ambience reminiscent of an exclusive private members club.
This luxury townhouse offers individually designed rooms and complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. The excellent Underground transport links at South Kensington Station mean this stunning hotel is the ideal base for exploring the capital. Within the beautiful exterior of this historic townhouse guests will find exquisite décor and designer furniture to complement the stunning building. Mixed in with the classic decor hotel guests will still find all modern amenities in-room such as an LCD television, internet access, air-conditioning, direct dial phone and tea & coffee making facilities. The Kensington Hotel also provides a laundry service, 24 hour room service and offers a late checkout time of 3pm on Sundays. When staying at the Kensington Hotel, London visitors can enjoy a fresh and filling a la carte breakfast which is perfect before a day exploring the city.
