     Another great visit


    Second time staying at The Resident and delighted to enjoy the same high class accommodation, cleanliness and service we received last time we visited. Great to have shops, restaurants and a tube station nearby to make the best of our trip to London. We are pensioners and enjoyed walking to the nearby museums, Hyde Park and theatres during our visit, however public transport is close by for those with mobility issues. Will definitely be our No 1 choice of accommodation next time we are in London.

    Charming hotel, centrally located


    Really enjoy our stays at the Resident Kensington. It’s a lovely hotel, warm and friendly, and very well located. The staff is very professional and helpful. The rooms are nice and comfortable, not high-end fashionable, but they have everything you would expect – decent bathroom, very comfy beds, lots of towels, pillows etc, good lighting, electrical outlets and toiletries. The location is perfect for restaurants, shops, theatres and attractions all within walking distance. We will definitely stay here again!

    Beautiful building and room in a great, quiet location.


    We stayed at the resident when visiting the Chelsea flower show in May. Good location close to two tube stations. Nice restaurants nearby. Beautiful room and a great nights sleep. Would highly recommend.
