    Hotel Overview

    The imposing Kensington Hotel is housed in a beautiful Regency building just 6 minutes' walk from both South Kensington and Gloucester Road Underground stations, and less than 20 minutes on the tube to the West End from there. You'll appreciate its relaxed atmosphere, and the efficient, very personal service creates the ambience of a smart private members club.

    The ground floor of this family hotel is made up of interconnecting drawing rooms, with open fires, large bay windows and striking original features including a splendid stone staircase.

    Rooms vary in size and shape and are decorated in an elegant country house style with plush fabrics, deep upholstery and an eclectic mix of contemporary art and furnishings. Part of the hotel’s £20m refurbishment, the newly completed Kensington Suite is amongst the most chic and elegant in London. There is a variety of views to enjoy, through French doors onto leafy Queen's Gate, over the neighbouring rooftops or onto the hotel's quiet courtyards.

    Top-tier shopping is close at hand at Harrods and Harvey Nichols in nearby Knightsbridge, with the intimate boutiques, chic restaurants and design stores of perennially stylish Chelsea also within striking distance. If you'd rather just soak up London's unique atmosphere, Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park are a short walk from the hotel.

    Enjoy an à la carte breakfast or a delicious lunch or dinner from the international menu in the Aubrey restaurant, partake of Kensington Afternoon Tea, or relax post-show in the glamorous ground floor cocktail bar with a drink and a light snack.
