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.

London sightseeing

Location, price, comfort
Enjoyable- although I was woken up on both nights by hearing - through the air conditioning (?) a loud telephone conversation by someone in another room - in either Chinese or Japanese! This was approximately 5 amon both nights. The second night we were not given any hand towels.

The hotel is situated in a very convenient location, room is big and clean except the installations are quite old.
Jeffrey T. Couples Canada, July 11, 2015
Great location

Great location, very good service, reasonalby priced
We have stayed at the Copthorne Tara a couple of years ago on our last visit to London; we were pleased enough then to book it again for our most recent trip there. You can't beat the location: Right on the tube line (a two minute walk away), around the corner from the main bus routes (eg. a short ride to Buckingham Palace), and walkable to everywhere worth seeing (eg., Hyde Park, Kensington Park, Nottinghill). Very comfortable rooms: Good size for London accommodation, clean, quiet, good pressure and lots of hot water in the shower, kettle provided with lots of tea and coffee, rooms have a small fridge, flat screen tv's with more than enough channels. Excellent frontline staff: Always smiling, always helpful. We would stay there again on our next visit.
Reginald A. Couples Australia, July 10, 2015
Great stay

Location. Comfort. Clean.
It would have been an expensive experience to eat & drink in the hotel, perhaps not by European hotel standards, but there were plenty of alternatives in the neighbourhood with cheaper fare. I thought internet charges at the hotel were also over the top. Otherwise, staff, location, cleanliness and comfort were all very good and the underground station is only 3 minutes walk away.

The location is very convenience to go everywhere because there is High Street Kensington station close to the hotel. There are a lot of restaurants and shopping around there. The area of the hotel is High Street Kensington which is one of very good location.
