Perfect find
Great little find. Full of character and staff in lobby super helpful and very friendly. Our room was larger than expected and we found we had a very peaceful nights sleep. I am so pleased we selected this hotel over others which were more expensive and charged resort fees. The WiFi was so handy to check in on home each morning and location was spot on for our 4 day exploration of SFC.

Good stay overall
Reception staff very friendly and efficient, called ahead and asked if we could have a slightly earlier check in, and rooms were ready and waiting at noon. Only drawback was no aircon, and we arrived during an unusual heatwave. Ceiling fan was in constant use, but obviously not as good. Early morning coffee on the landing was very welcome, as was the tea in the lobby and afternoon sherry.

I found a gem!!!!
I love the ambience of this quaint boutique hotel that has a theatre literally on the hotel premise and is literally within walking distance from Union Square which gives us easy access to restaurants and shopping. The hotel staff (Joshua,Billy, Giovanni,Mario etc)was very friendly and helpful which made our hotel stay a memorable one!

Great stay. Perfect base.
After lots of research and indecision I finally decided on the Kensington Park due to its price and location. I’m delighted to say it was the right choice. Perfect for getting around the city. Lovely safe area and the room, including the bed, was comfortable. Nice touch to have afternoon sherry in reception and it was a lovely surprise to find there’s an old theatre inside the hotel! Definitely would stay again.

Excellent Stay over New Years
Excellent stay near Union Square. Hotel is clean and very comfortable, with excellent front desk staff. One of the lifts was broken during our stay which made them slow to wait for, but that is a very minor complaint.
Pete, gb4 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Staff were very friendly and helpful the strikes out the front spoilt our stay somewhat. The finer details of cleaning require some attention eg the plug hole in the bath had hair come floating up when we ran a bath. A double room is really only fit for 2 people rather than a family of 3 as the beds were a squeeze. We were moved into a king with a roll up bed from the second night, which was better but not ideal when you have paid for proper beds for everyone.

Solo Male Traveller.
Single traveller and wanting to be right in the middle of town. First impression was excellent. Room was good but bathroom very dated. Shower / tub combo pretty poor. For the price of the hotel I did expect a bit more. Even a bottle of water was chargeable and very expensive. Due to this I bought from corner store instead. After a few hours I realised the whole area is massively expensive though so perhaps this hotel is in line with others. The staff were excellent and very polite. Room was cleaned very well every day. Local area after dark is a bit concerning. Homeless everywhere and lots of "working ladies" but all harmless and easy to ignore.

Great location and lots of character
We really enjoyed out stay at the Kensington Park Hotel. It's in a really central location and the hotel has loads of character. Every staff member was polite, friendly and helpful The room was comfortable and clean, parts of the decor look a little tired but overall experience was great.

Very good 8.0
Very pleasant hotel. Very comfortable pillows and bed. Reasonably quiet. There were some odd noises (doors banging and, inexplicably, someone was repetitively singing "somewhere over the rainbow" between 9pm and 11pm each night), but I am very sensitive to noise. I liked the provision of tea, coffee and sherry at particular times of day :)
