Repost from TripAdvisor This is my second Premier Inn. I stayed at Gatwick last year. I must say that the Gatwick one is a little nicer in terms of design but honestly it's a great value. I stayed out in this way b/c I didn't want to be in the center of London as it's very loud at night. Kensington is just up the street from the tube and there's …
Modern Art. Bringing up this topic always bring up a good laugh, a heated argument, or among the select few, a fruitful intellectual discussion. I've never seen a real modern art piece in person, and with a hotel so close, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to visit Tate Modern.
On the outside, Tate Modern does not look anything like a …
After diembarking the ship we took the Train from Priory Station in Dover to Victoria Station in London. We headed straight for the Cornish Pasties Stand to get lunch. the caught our first "london black cab" and headed to our hotel.
Nice hotel, nothing major.. Premier Inns are good but not lush and plush... but did the job just fine.
... supporters. They are coming well down in the table and Fulham are about 9th, so we are pretty much expecting to be in the stand that go home crying. Paul is happy to learn that Mark Schwarzer, the goalie for Australia plays for Fulham. We are surrounded by crazy Sunderland fans.....it is an interesting experience. The guy in front of us could qualify for a scary serial killer role any day and he spends a lot of the match cursing, swearing and stamping his ...
... architecture. In the afternoon Leigh, Karen and myself visited Westminster while Tom and Robert visited Churchill's War Rooms - the guys really enjoyed going over all the maps and plans as left by Churchill and his advisors. As stated earlier we visited Westminster - this cathedral while well known for royal Weddings is quite a dark interior and while still amazing ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Premier Inn London Kensington
we stayed here for one night after a concert at Earls Court, good location, rooms clean and comfy, friendly staff and a lovely breakfast, would definately consider staying here again. One thing i would mention though is the parking situation, nothing was mentioned when i booked by phone about the lack of parking at the hotel, on check in i was told to leave my keys and someone would pick up the car to park it overnight at some off site parking ground... all very well handled, but the next morning when the car was returned to us... a charge £27! i wouldnt have said if they had told us about that when i had booked or even the night before on check in.
I stayed at this hotel for around a month in September on business. Having stayed at many hotels in London around the £70-90/night mark over the past few months, this was definitely one of the best.
The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms are of a reasonable size, clean, and (something that is rare in London hotels) have air conditioning! It's also a great location, being less than a a 5min walk to Earls Court tube station which is a hub for the various branches of the District line, giving easy access to central London or its various suburbs.
My main criticism of this hotel though, apart from the awful brown colour decor, is the food. Stay away from the restaurant! I ate there several times just for convenience but the food was routinely bad. It seems to be all processed food - I once ordered mashed potato but told they were out of it, yet I could have any other type of potato. Has the chef not heard of a potato masher? I've also stayed at another Premier Travel Inn (this time in County Hall by the London Eye) which was an equally nice hotel except, again, for the food.
Food aside, this is a great hotel which I would happily stay at again. It's not luxurious, but provides a very comfortable and pleasant stay with great staff who should be commended.
Value for Money
This place is great value for money. It is nicely located in Central London and very close to the Earls Court station. Buses were also available from nearby Crawly Street (walking distance). Post office, I-net cafes and lots of eateries nearby. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included with the stay and that was very helpful since we have 2 small kids.
With regards to the complain about trains, be sure to ask for rooms on the other side of the hotel. The main hotel (with the lobby, restaurant and some rooms) is close to the tracks and those rooms could be noisy. But the 6 story building across the street is where you should be.
One thing to watch out is that if you have lots of luggage, the hotel does not allow the use of its "left luggage" facility (the manager gave me some story about regulations). So you will need to carry and store it in the room yourself.
Top spot in kensington for value
really close to earls court tube. lots of places to eat and drink around. rooms great for the price-great breakfast with friendly helpful staff. not 5 star but you know what you are getting and get what you need. great value-def revisit
Really great stay
Very well situated,only 2 min walk from earls court station and lots of places to grab a bite,if you cant be bothered going far.
Staff helpful and friendly.Room clean and bed comfortable.
Only complaint is our room was over a train line,this disturbed me the first night but didnt bother my partner,it wasn't drastic though.
The breakfast in hotel was very good,cheaper than if you go out.It was a buffet with lots of choice,alot better than anywhere we could find in the city centre.
We really enjoyed it and will go again.
TRains, trains , trains!
Hmm, why do none of these reviews mention the trains? Our room looked out over the train lines running into Earls Court tube station and the noise was terrible! trains didn't stop until 1am and started again at 5, I hardly slept-nightmare!
Great hotel for-trainspotters and insomniacs.
I picked this hotel based on reviews from this website - and it was a good choice. This hotel offers a GREAT location at Earl's Court with EVERYTHING around you to make for easy traveling. Probably the best comparison is to say the hotel is about like a Sleep Inn in the US. Basic, clean, and comfortable - it was actually nicer than I expected. I would not hesitate to book this on my next trip.
I went to London to spend a Girl's week-end and we were at Travel inn Kensington. Room was clean and very confortable, bathroom simply huges! Nice atmosphere and very good breakfast.
Two minutes walking from Gloucester tube station and two steps from Victoria Station.
Really nice atmosphere
we stayed here for 3 nites in june 2004, the staff were all really friendly and the room was nice and clean, breakfast was lovely,the bath was huge,! really central hotel two minute walk to earls court tube. am trying to book a return trip. well done everyone we had a great stay..
No room at the Inn
Booked a room from their web site in July for November. When we arrived there was no room for us. They offered us a room at the Travel Inn at the Tower of London and a taxi which we declined as we were going to a concert at Earls Court which is a short walk away.
Ended up having to stay at the Cromwell Crown Hotel whcih was a filthy dump.
