Across the road from Gloucester tube station, Rydges Kensington London is in a quieter part of London, handy to the Natural History Museum, Royal Albert Hall, and Rydges Kensington London. Featuring original high ceilings and Victorian decor, it enjoys a warm, authentically English atmosphere complimented by the cozy on-site pub and lovely breakfast room. With Gloucester tube so close, accessing central London takes 30 minutes at most and Heathrow is accessible via the Piccadilly line. Black cabs are readily available from Gloucester Road, and public houses can be found on every corner.

Don't look further, it's a gem in Kensington

location, free internet, staff
Perfect stay. Amongst many things, friendly and professional staff, very well located (very nice area and 2min to tube), spacious rooms, nicely decorated and free internet (that many other hotels don't offer so pay attention). i strongly recommend

Rydges Kensington

Excellent location close to underground. Friendly staff.
enjoyed stay, but trouble with air conditioning, and in room phone didn't work. Trouble with WiFi - poor connection and slow. Carpets rather tired.

Location, clean, quality
Very good. Very convenient. Room has everything you need though a little small as I got a single room. But still very satisfied with my stay.

location at it's best

It's location is central to all the attractions and places of interest in town. Many cafes outside the hotel. The train station is a minute walk away
Everything was great about this hotel. I personally think that their beds are a bit worn out and flabby. After 5days, my back was aching from the soft mattress.

A very good all round package

Location, Good quality
We stayed here for just one night since we were going to a show at the Royal Albert Hall. The location on Gloucester Road is grate for this venue - or the museums. Gloucester Road itself has a comfortable feel - good restaurants nearby, the tube is close to the hotel (though we had our car). The quality is very good for central London. Our room was a little on the small side - but not bad for central London standards and, to be honest, we paid a very reasonable rate.... So overall the Rydges is certainly easy to recommend - especially if you can get a good rate....

not worth the extra money, not a boutique hotel

location, very quiet hotel
I stayed in the executive suite (not worth the upgrade price). The location was excellent, staff was nice, good wifi. It was quiet and couldn't hear anything in the halls despite being close to the elevator. Washroom facilities good, beds good. Would recommend this hotel.
