Arrived early on the Sunday and staff were very helpful and allowed us access to our room to store our luggage. Booked the family room, it's was a reasonable size, in good decor and the kitchen and shower room were all well appointed. Location is good for trains or buses into the centre of London. Left on Wednesday and staff...

I very much enjoy being at the prpoerty, near many transportation points, and has the advantage to walk to West Field shopping center. The only issue is that I've requested twin bed room but they give us a double one but they solve it with bringing extra bed to the room as the room was spacious.

Finally found hotel, after first arriving at the Kensington Suites just up the road.....my error, but at least they had a name outside! First impressions good, although surprised that we'd been given twin beds when I'd specified double. The kitchen area very well hidden and great if staying a few days. However, the shower room was very dirty in the...

I booked Kensington Studios for my husband and son who were working in London for the week. The room was clean, modern and well appointed. There was a mix up over the rooms initially, but Corinna on reception went out of her way to apologise and sort out the problem and couldn't have been more helpful.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The apartment was very adequate and newly refurbished. The staff were really helpful, welcoming and any request was immediately responded too. The small kitchen was quite adequate and we made good use of it. The studio was cleaned daily and it was so nice to return to a spotless environment. The bus stop virtually...

I stayed here for 2 nights whilst exhibiting at London Olympia. It's an excellent location for just a 10 minute walk (if that) to Olympia West. The apartment I had (lower ground 1, LG1) was a family room with a double and 2 singles. I was just on my own, so plenty of space but I can imagine it would...

I was greeted by a man sitting in reception who I believe did not work for The Kensington Studio, he asked if I could wait until the receptionist comes back. Two minutes later I was greeted by the receptionist who was very welcoming, asked for a copy of my ID and explained that the reception area closes after 6pm and...

I stayed overnight whilst doing some attraction actives in London. We arrived in London early on the day of check in and even though check-in wasn’t until later on in the afternoon we were able to leave our bags (not in a secure room, just in an open space. Bags need to be locked or anyone could take them). We...

I stayed here two nights. I love being able to do my own cooking when I'm away and everything was here to be able to do so. Very clean and modern and with a room facing the rear of the property, quiet on the outside. It wasn't so quiet on the inside however. The bare floors squeak when you walk...
