  • The Resident Kensington

    A hidden gem

     

    A rare find. I had the most pleasant 2-night stay at The Resident Kensington. The location was perfect coming from Heathrow, and I was warmly welcomed by the reception staff on arrival. My room was impeccable and had everything I needed, including a handy kitchenette. It is located in a lovely neighborhood and was enjoyable to walk around and explore. I wish I could have stayed longer there and would highly recommend.

    Fantastic Hotel and Brilliant Staff

     

    The hotel is in a great location in London, perfect for trips to the Royal Albert Hall. The reception staff are so friendly and couldn’t have been more helpful. The lobby is really nicely decorated and the rooms are perfect for what we wanted.
    The staff went over and above and dressed the room up with balloons and a card for my girlfriend’s birthday.

    I can’t recommend this hotel enough

    Great location, very close to the Underground and convenience stores.
    The staff were all very helpful and friendly; the rooms had everything we needed and were very comfortable and well-appointed. The bed was very comfortable too!
