Kensington High Street Area Holiday Reviews

Kensington Palace, Kensington High Street Area

One of London's most fashionable districts, our hotels in Kensington are perfect for a short break in the capital; close by to all the excitement of central London, the area is just far enough removed from all the hustle and bustle for a relaxing getaway. Oxford Street, Mayfair and the glittering West End are all just a short tube ride away.

Kensington High Street is famed for its fabulous shopping, with upscale boutiques offering the very finest fashions and trendy goods. With a great range of stores, Westfield Shopping centre is also an excellent destination when on a shopping break. Our Kensington hotels are also in a good position to visit some of London's top attractions - pretty Hyde Park, the Royal Albert Hall and the Natural History Museum are all just a short walk away.

  • Endlessly elegant and very, very impressive, be sure to visit Kensington Palace and its stunning gardens - the former home of Princess Diana and currently the residence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Palace have a number of fascinating exhibitions permanently on show.
  • Well worth a visit at any time of year, The Victoria and Albert Museum (otherwise known as the V and A) often have the most popular and sought-after exhibitions in London.
  • Great for exhibitions and famous for its annual Horse Trials, Olympia London is a mere stone's throw away.


A fantastic choice for your next short break in London, check out our great range of hotels in Kensington below.

Stayed 2 nights at NH Kensignton. Good accomodation, clean. Helpful staff. Breakfast was alright but not too enticing.

Short Break In London

Stay Date: 08/11/10, a customer from Uk who stayed at 4* Radisson Blu Edwardian, Vanderbilt in Kensington wrote this review.

The hotel is in a great location but room was poor, possibly because we were getting a cheap deal. Room small with no bedside lamps just awful glaring ceiling lights throughout the hotel. Very See More  Read more information unnattractive and unflattering. Improved lighting in that hotel could create a much much better ambiance. Music quite loud in restaurant and staff reluctant to even turn it down. It wasn't even backgroundtype music. It must have been for the staff - certainly not for the customers.   Collapse  Hide

Short Break In The Capital

Stay Date: 14/11/10, a customer from Uk who stayed at 4* Holiday Inn London Kensington Forum in Kensington wrote this review.

The Holiday Inn was one of the best Superbreak hotels we have stayed in. Bedroom modern and spotless, breakfasts well organised and plenty of choice. We also enjoyed an excellent evening meal in the See More  Read more information restaurant. Staff were friendly and helpful. Tubes are by far the best way of getting around-purchase an oyster card before trip! Lots of underground upgrading going on at weekends so best to checkthis out. We were unable to fit in a visit to the titanic exhibition at the O2 because the jubilee line was closed. A trip to London will never be a disappointment.   Collapse  Hide

Stay Date: 13/12/10, a customer from Uk who stayed at 4* Radisson Blu Edwardian, Vanderbilt in Kensington wrote this review.

A visit to Priscilla Queen of the Desert on Saturday afternoon was an excellent start and a trip to signor sassi in Knightsbridge rounded off a wonderful day. A fabulous italian restaurant although See More  Read more information a bit pricey! A quick trip to the London museum on Sunday morning is always a good way to spend a couple of hours.
