Room stay- pay for added value

It's location
4.7
At least I knew I was just using it as a room to sleep in. But read other reviews before you book- the hotel caters for groups - for single travellers not so much . 10 pounds a night for wifi is ridiculous if you don't have a group discount. So I suggest you go up the road to currys' store and buy a portable wifi with sim for 20 pounds way cheaper if you are ataying more than a few nights in London. The services are over priced the rooms (single) are tiny - overall - it only has location going for it- for the money you pay - air bnb might be a better fit.

One of nice hotel to stay if you visiting London!

Clean room, Friendly and polite Staff, Good Location
8.3
I was stay 2 nights with my daughter and we have a lovely time during our stay. Staff are friendly and polite, make feel welcome. Hotel interiors are nice. Swimming pool is big. Room and toilet is clean even a bit small than I thought but bed was comfy and I didn't plan to stay all day in the room anyway. Before book, I read comment and some comment almost change my mind but glad I didn't. I haven't eat in the hotel so I can't rate it properly. Only disappointed (more to myself coz didn't read description clear) that I have to pay for swimming pool, at the end I paid only for my daughter to swim as otherwise if I pay for myself tht will add another £13 to the room and I will be regret as I could stay in other hotel same price but room much bigger and have kitchen area too. Apart from that I would say I could stay here again. If I may suggest to the hotel I would like to say please consider to add-on price for the room included usage of facility already that would be more make sense and it won't be disappointed comment for the hotel.

Good Value Hotel in the heart of London

Location, Clean Rooms, no disappointment
7.3
I've been in a lot of bad Hotels in London, and the Kensington Close is definitely not one of them. Good Value for money made me have a simple and convenient stay. Lot's of airline staff is residing there as well. Pro-Tip: Don't pay for the internet. it's not worth it and you won't necessarily have reception in the room. Rather buy a SIM-Card somewhere outside and tether your smartphone.

Dissappointing

Location, efficient check in, nice lobby area
6.3
We found the location very convenient, close to tube station. The facade and lobby area are quite impressive & check in very prompt. It ends at that point however. We were left to discover our small musty smelling room , once we had summoned the only working lift & dragged our luggage into it. A similar problem locating a lift on check out left us with an extra charge on our airport transfer for keeping them waiting. The bed was very hard and uncomfortable, the only shower that worked was the hand held which produced an inadequate trickle of lukewarm water. Would not recommend.

Getting to the hotel is simple. If you are traveling by underground, the nearest tube station is High Street Kensington (Circle and District lines). As you come out of the station, turn left down Wrights Lane and you will find the hotel at the bottom of the road on the left hand side. If you are traveling by car from Heathrow Airport, get on the M4 and follow signs to Central London. The M4 leads into the A4. Continue over the Hammersmith Flyover into Cromwell Road. Turn left into Marloes Road, just before Cromwell Hospital. Follow Marloes Road until it veers to the left. Turn right and you are there. If you prefer to travel by train, take the Heathrow Express train to Paddington Station.
