Welcome to The Kensington
Set in the heart of one of London’s most desirable neighbourhoods, The Kensington hotel occupies a prime location on the corner of two iconic thoroughfares, Queen’s Gate and the Old Brompton Road.
Situated in four grand townhouses, the hotel’s grand, stucco façade is characteristic of this affluent 19th century district, which is home to cultural treasures like The Natural History Museum, Victoria & Albert Museum and The Royal Albert Hall within walking distance, and the green spaces of Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park and world-famous stores such as Harrods and Harvey Nichols close by.
With open fires found in nearly all the hotel’s ground floor reception rooms, entering The Kensington hotel feels rather like walking through the doors of a lovingly-restored London mansion.The high ceilings and heritage décor evoke a sense of Victorian grandeur, while the hotel’s famously friendly and engaging service creates a relaxed ambience reminiscent of an exclusive private members club. The warm jewel tones, creative English menu, and easy atmosphere at Town House restaurant mean drinks and dinner with friends easily becomes a night to remember.
Historic charm and sleek contemporary style
The Kensington hotel’s 126 guest rooms and 24 suites are all individually decorated and combine sumptuous fabrics, deep upholstery and an eclectic mix of contemporary art and sleek furnishings that complement this historic building’s classic Victorian townhouse architecture.
