Strategic location

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 5, 2009

A hotel enclosed into an old classic building. It means it's not designed like a hotel and it feels, but it's the same all around it. Cromwell road is an avenue full of this kind of beautiful old buildings that are now used as hotels or so. The inner structure is complex, the rooms use to be small, corridors are narrow with stairs in the middle, etc., but at the same time it's a new experience!. Rooms are clean, only correct and the bath is old, but the shower, despite the shape, worked fantastic. ?? Staff also correct.

Like many other european countries a three-star hotel is like a two-star one in Spain. But this is something you must have present when travelling here.

Unique Quality: The best, the self-service breakfast and the strategic location, very near from V & A Museum and Natural History Museum -you may take a walk- and, through Gloucester road subway station move everywhere in London.

Directions: Kensington district, close to Gloucester road subway station.

The lovely Kensington Rooms

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 22, 2004

We all know that decent hotel accommodation in London is very expensive and that you can often end up with a dud.

But we struck gold with a little help from the internet. I used a discount hotel site (I think it was Orbitz) to book a week at Kensington Rooms, in mid August, at only 50 quid a night. Their rack rates for the same room are 150 pounds - so what a saving.

Rooms are well-sized although the beds are enormously huge and tend to take up most of the main room. No air-conditioning so if you happen to be there during a heat wave (like we were in 2003) you won't get any relief. But then most hotels don't have AC either.

Location is really good - a few minutes walk from the Tube (the line that goes directly to/from the airport, very convenient), and you're across the road from a dry cleaners and Sainsbury's. You're also about 10 minute's walk from High Street Kensington which has lots of shops and eateries.

I wouldn't pay 150 pounds - but then I don't think I'd visit London if I had to pay that much per night at a hotel! Spend some time checking reputable hotel discount sites and you might just find a great deal for this - or other hotels.
