Our Reviews

  • The Resident Kensington

    Great hotel with perfect location.

     

    We loved staying at the Resident Kensington. We had never been to London and didn’t know much about the hotels/locations/etc., but we don’t regret staying here and would definitely come back to this hotel. The location is perfect near the Earl’s Court Station. We used the tube for everything The price was reasonable too. The staff was friendly and answered all our questions. Our room was clean and quiet. Highly recommend!

    Perfect location, perfect staff.

     

    We had health issues that made us reschedule our trip of couple of times, and the staff were super helpful and got us changed over and booked each time. We got a King bed room and it was plenty big enough with a good size bathroom and the kitchen area was great for quick meals in the room – sink, tea kettle, coffee, dishes, glasses and the fridge is small but fit the key items we needed.

    I think while the room was great, it was the staff that stood out, making our stay wonderful. And the location was perfect – right on the District line to get anywhere – but also had great coffee, snacks, meals but the hotel is a block away keeping the rooms quiet in a nice residential neghborhood.

    Exceptional service at The Resident Kensington

     

    Returning to The Resident Kensington feels a little like coming home. While the rooms are well designed and well appointed, it is the exceptional service from reception and housekeeping staff which sets this hotel apart. I was travelling with a friend with limited mobility and George and his team went out of their way to ensure our stay was comfortable and hassle-free. We also appreciated the complimentary drinks in the evening — another way of making guests feel welcome. My only reservation is that the rooms are small: I’d recommend a standard double as a minimum. This is my third stay at the Resident, and I hope to return soon!
