About Rydges Kensington London


Occupying a stately mansion on Gloucester Road, this property is situated amongst some of London's most important cultural landmarks. 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.

Near train station, nice district
The hotel is situated about 3 mins from Gloucester Rd station. Kensington is a beautiful neighbourhood and walkable to Hyde Park.

I don't know what I'm supposed to type in here.
All of the staff members did an excellent job, particularly Krystal, Nick and Kyle. They were extremely helpful with my computer, finding me a rental car and providing an excellent breakfast at the best price. They helped me with everything I asked for and made suggestions that I wouldn't have thought of such as ordering breakfast the day before to save money. I had an excellent room rate and Nick gave me a member's card. Thank you to all of you. I hope to see you again shortly. All the best, Sylvia Johnson Barbados PS I'm not sure what to put in the 'What kind of traveler were you?' box. I couldn't get the drop down arrow to work. I didn't know what to put in the next box, either. SJ

Good Location
