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.

What a Weekend for Wimbledon

Stay Date: 04/07/13, a customer aged 45-64 who stayed at 3* Ambassadors Hotel Kensington in Kensington wrote this review.

Booked a short Superbreak in London to coincide with our Wimbledon tickets for Sunday 7th. The hotel was well suited for the Gloucester Road tube however the staff on reception were surly and See More  Read more information provided poor customer service. The room upgrade (£20) per night provided what I would have expected in a regular room however, despite these shortcomings, local pubs and restaurants in the Kensington areaare great for a night out - especially when celebrating an historic Wimbledon win!,   Collapse  Hide

Weekend in London

Stay Date: 24/08/13, a customer aged 45-64 from Milton Keynes who stayed at 3* Ambassadors Hotel Kensington in Kensington wrote this review.

We stayed at the Ambassadors Hotel, Kensington, London as we were meeting friends visiting from Australia who were already staying there. The room was fine but could do with freshening-up. The beds See More  Read more information were uncomfortable & need new mattresses. The sink in the bathroom was tiny but the rest of the bathroom was fine. The location is inbetween 2 underground stations which are 10-15 minutes walkingdistance. Also there are plenty of restaurants, shops & attractions nearby. Overall I thought this hotel would have been of a higher standard as it is in Kensington & I did not think that it was goodvalue for money.   Collapse  Hide

London Weekend

Stay Date: 06/03/14, a customer aged 45-64 from Kelso who stayed at 3* Ambassadors Hotel Kensington in Kensington wrote this review.

Location of hotel was excellent. Close to underground and bus stop. Smallest room I have ever stayed in but clean. The bathroom was so small you could sit on the loo and wash your hair in the sink. See More  Read more information Basically a small room turned into an en suite. Plenty of hot water. Long waits for lift. Continental Breakfast was a joke. First time I have ever had to pay an extra £5 for a bit of cheese orham. Full English was also an extra £5 but that was fair enough. Would not stay here again but would have no hesitation in using Superbreak again. Great to have train fares included in price and had agreat time overall.   Collapse  Hide

The hotel was modern and basic, See More  Read more information rooms modern and clean and warm (which was nice for this time of year). Continental breakfast was good quality and well presented. We bought underground day tickets, the hotel on the piccadiliy linewhich basically took us to every place we wanted to go 'fast'. Earls court area had lots of restaurants (including chains like Nandos, Wagamama etc) so good if you have children and want to eat close byto hotel of a night time (like i did). Winter Wonderland was great, we had good weather though - bright and sunny but cold day - perfect.   Collapse  Hide
