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.

Good Weekend Away in London

Stay Date: 14/02/13, a customer aged 25-44 who stayed at 4* Holiday Inn London Kensington Forum in Kensington wrote this review.

Arrived at hotel met by front reception staff who welcomed us and shows us the car park. Found the hotel very clean although on entering the room we found this a tiny bit small and basic, but very See More  Read more information clean and comfortable. The bed was very comfy. As we arrived late that evening we had dinner in the hotel restaurant. This was outstanding food and probably the best place we had eaten in our four daysthere. The hotel is situated bang in the middle of everything, with easy of use of the underground and loads of places to dine within walking distance. They have their own taxi rank but please beaware we only used this twice as this became very expensive. We found a Chinese/Cantonese restaurant across the way from the hotel and would recommend giving this a miss - small portions of food and notvery warm, very basic and not good for money but that's just our opinion. All in all we found the hotel very good and we would visit again.   Collapse  Hide

Shocked at the hot evening meal - a lost opportunity for such a lovely environment - they need to check out modern bistro style food! The Manet at RA was disappointing! RA exhibitions need to gettheir game back up to the quality of 20 or 30 years ago. Work ups and practice pieces are not acceptable padding to make up a small exhibition.   Collapse  Hide
