Customer Reviews by Destination - Kensington High Street Area
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.

Short Break in London
Stay Date: 05/11/06, a customer from Dublin 1 who stayed at 4* Radisson Blu Edwardian, Vanderbilt in Kensington wrote this review.
The bedroom in the Raddison Edwardian Vanderbuilt that I was expected to stay in was an insult £505 for 3 nights. I complained and was shown another available room and was asked to pay a suppliment … See More for this room. I declined and said that I was not prepared to stay there on those thems and the eventually found me another room that was slightly larger than the 1st room. I will never stay in thisor a similar hotel again. What they are trying to get away with in terms of standards is disgraceful. For a 4 star property there should be basic mimium core standards to include minimum bedroomsizes. Collapse

Weekend in Knightsbridge
Stay Date: 08/12/12, a customer aged 45-64 who stayed at 4* Radisson Blu Edwardian, Vanderbilt in Kensington wrote this review.
The location was dictated by the events we had planned and pre-booked - Billy Elliot The Musical and the British Military Tournament. The chosen hotel was the Radisson Edwardian Vanderbilt based on … See More it's proximity to both attractions. The hotel was poor, the customer service non existent and the staff abrupt to the point of rudeness. The rooms were tired and the bathrooms in need of some TLC. Wehad requested an adjacent room for my daughter on booking and were assured this had been allocated when we checked in. The rooms were no where near each other. No apology but they did change mydaughter's room to one opposite ours! The lift kept breaking down (we were on the fourth floor). We were refused afternoon tea "because they were running behind". No apology. We were kept standing in aqueue for 25 mins to be seated for breakfast, even though vacant tables could clearly be seen and the service so poor we resorted to finding our own cutlery, coffee etc. No apology Knightsbridge was asurprise - everything appears to shut on a Saturday evening at 11 o'clock. We could only find one restaurant open for a late meal after the show! Both shows were absolutely excellent and we had afantastic weekend despite the poor hotel. Collapse

Week break to London
Stay Date: 03/06/14, a customer aged 25-44 who stayed at 3* Ambassadors Hotel Kensington in Kensington wrote this review.
The hotel was very clean but really needed decorating. Our room was very small not a lot room around the sides or end of the bed, the room should of been a single. The restaurant wasn't that big and … See More ran out of space for breakfast. Continental breakfast was very very basic. Location wasn't to bad, close to the tube. Collapse
