Overnight Prom stay
Stayed for one night as going to a late night Prom at the Royal Albert Hall and this hotel is handily placed not too far away. We liked the flexibiilty at check in where they found us a room we could go straight too, however, in keeping with such hotels the rooms are a little on the small side, although very well maintained.

Second visit
Great location, it's our second stay at the hotel. Room was a little on the small side and when we arrived we discovered that the bed was not made, a half bottle of water in our bathroom and dirty flannel in the sink. I provided feedback to reception and received quite a curt response stating that there was no upgrades available, I explained I was not looking for an upgrade simply a clean room upon arrival. The dining area and reception was beautifully decorated. Shame about the attitude!

Should have stayed at the Malmasion!
We booked a night away in London via yourselves a 20 meter squared room with a bath. Bearing in mind I had spent hours on the Internet to find this kind of room as we don't get to go away very often because we have 3 children. The first room they put us in was so tiny with a shower, we went to ask to be moved about an hour later they still hadn't sorted it but we has to go out to meet friends. We asked them and trusted them to sort out our room, we arrived back at the hotel at 12 midnight, the new room they had put us in was lovely but the air condition unit was broken had was making a very loud warring sound. There was no chance to try and sleep through that! Plus it was set to ice cold! Back down to reception we were given anther (which took ages again!) an hour later we able to go to bed. So overall it ruined our previous night away. On check out they tried to charge me for the tea I had while I was waiting an hour for them to sort out my correct room. I normally book in to the Malmasion / du vin group, for some reason I didnt I was stupid!! Money wasted and down the drain, so would not go back!

Trying hard to be top.
Generally a good hotel, and a hotel that "wants" to be really good. A few issues bocked that intention for us. The TV did not work for half of the stay, and a maintenance person had to turn up twice. Also refurbishment was started at the time, with drilling, cacking, banking sounds;in the middle of the busiest time of the year. Bad timing. But. The Kensington Hotel is nice. The bar is really good. I overheard from some that the food is also good. We will go again some other time.
