Average Guest Rating: 4.1'Very Good' Based on 20 Hotel Reviews
Guy Coxall, British

Friendly staff, great room, clean and good value for money. Ideal location for Olympia or access to London city centre. Will definitely book Kensington West again

Anke Basse, British

Friendly and helpful staff, bedroom was small but clean perfectly adequate for an overnight stay or need to be close to the Olympia Exhibition Center which is a ten minute walk. The TV in the room is not in a good position on the wall and to small. It is definitely value for money. I booked a single room and was given a double which was a nice surprise. Will book Kensington West again to stay there next year
