Excellent location just a short distance away from the Gloucester station. Walking distance to many attractions, with many food outlets nearby. Front desk staff were very friendly, helpful and prompt in their response. Rooms are clean, bright and fresh. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Good clean hotel, breakfast is not worth it.
Perfect location for what we needed. Avoid the breakfast. Beds were too soft for our liking but we didnt mind since we were only there for a couple days.

Convenient with 3 train lines within a minute
Small and clean hotel. Within walking distance to grocery and restaurants as well as tube and train lines as well as the Museum of Natural History and other attractions. A definite must stay.

Not bad
We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights. Hotel staff were friendly and polite. Though the room wasn't cleaned well. Details like headboards were dusty when we checked in and hasn't been cleaned despite asking for Housekeeping daily. Shuttle service was a bit disappointment. We took the private transfer on the way to airport, but the driver asked for a different cost as of what we were told from the hotel concierge. We were located a room at basement, we could sometimes hear the people walking upstairs at night. Overall, the hotel wasn't a bad deal for its price since we were just using it as a place to rest at night. It's very convenient to food, supermarkets and Gloucester road tube station.

Quaint boutique hotel at a fabulous location
The Rydges Kensington is a cosy boutique hotel located at a very convenient location. It is just steps away from the Gloucester Subway station and the bus stop for the Hop On/ Hop Off bus under the Original Tours is literally at the hotel's doorstep. They offered me an extra bed at no cost for my 4 year old son which I thought was a nice touch, service-wise. But because I booked the executive king room, I guess the room space allowed for that. I have seen reviews stating that the smaller single rooms are very tiny but I have not seen them myself. The room is comfortably furnished and clean which is important for travellers with kids. The bathroom is very compact but at least clean too. Overall, I would recommend this hotel not only for its location but also for their rooms (which is better when you opt for the bigger ones). It is walking distance to the 3 big museums and about 30 mins on foot to Harrods. I also walked to Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park from the hotel. Hotel staff (Dean) was also very helpful in responding to my queries before I arrived. For a cosy experience, Rydges Kensington is it!
