Expensive European cars and up-market stores set the scene for this unassuming hotel near Kensington's high street. Sharing a district with London's affluent, Copthorne Tara London Kensington Hotel benefits from high-end environs while allowing easy access to the rest of London via the nearby High Street Kensington tube. Both the West End and the shopping of Piccadilly Circus are only a few stops away on the Circle line, and in the immediate vicinity, guests can make use of a plethora of Art Deco shops, pubs, and cafes. For those with a few quid still left by the weekend, Copthorne Tara London Kensington Hotel is just one stop away from the Portobello Road markets and antique stores in Notting Hill. At the end of the day, guests can come back to a room with a good view, a comfortable bed, and enough space to throw down their shopping bags.

Starting to show its age

Location. Access to transport. Near tourist attractions.
I was not impressed with the ten pound charge for Wi-Fi access. On the High Street many cafes and like places had free access. So guess what? We ate there rather than at the Capthorne. The management needs to review this situation as they are losing business.

A stroll to the Albert Hall

Location, view, comfort
We stayed a night after a late Prom at the Albert Hall. The location, a 15 minute walk from the Albert Hall and all that Kensington Has to offer is ideal. We had a standard room on the 9th floor looking East over London landmarks. The check-in was efficient, friendly and painless. The hotel was probably full which made the inclusive breakfast a bit tiresome having to queue to get a table but the buffet was fine with plenty of choice catering for all sorts (Noodles for breakfast anyone?) The room was comfortable, clean and spacious enough, if a little dated, and the aircon was adjustable but the window overlooking the District line didn't open. The staff were polite and helpful. I'd recommend this hotel as a comfortable place to sleep, 3 minutes from High Street Ken tube.
