Stayed here twice now on my trip, both times were great. Clean rooms, comfy beds and great staff. We had to check in early and they were more than accommodating. The room was bigger than last time which was good. I highly recommend this hotel

Plush, modern rooms (I saw 2). Comfortable beds, flat screen tv, Luxury bathrooms with sleek slate tiling. Staff were extremely accommodating and polite. I stayed 2 nights, asked to be moved from the ground floor due to noisy guests arriving from a night out, this was done with no questions asked. 5 minute walk from Olympia West exhibition hall. Perfect!

The W14 Kensington Hotel is very nice. Its a good stay there and located very well, near tube station Barons Court and also near Hammersmith station so you can reach tube or bus soon. Otherwise you can also reach Kensington Park or for example Royal Albert Hall by feet.

Very impressed with the standard of the newly converted room I occupied on the lower ground floor : comfortable beds, large modern shower, spotlessly clean. Position is good too, close to a couple of underground stations and within easy reach of Kensington Olympia overground. Breakfast is taken in a large room at the back of the property, plenty of it...
