The basics

Affordable rates. The Hotel Kensington West offers decent rates and, given its location and service, is an all-around solid value.

Clean, small, rooms. Although they are pint-sized (London standard), rooms are clean and comfortable.

Some guest complaints. Guests gripe about the cramped room size, thin walls, and dearth of sockets in the rooms, but those looking for a reliable budget bed find the Hotel Kensington West to be a good value.

Free coffee and tea are available throughout the day in the lobby (and a "Premiere Breakfast Pack" is available for an additional charge).

Free Wi-Fi is available throughout.
