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.

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.

Everything was fine except the staffs. We had to carry all our luggages up to our room and had to put it into the storage ourself if we want to leave the luggage with the hotel. The staffs attitude was like 'it's not my problem, do it yourself'.

All around great value!

The staff was professional, courteous & helpful. My room was small but clean & comfortable. I had tea in the lobby one afternoon & there was no charge. It was also in an excellent location.

When I return to London I will definitely stay here if they have room.
