    Historical Traveler Reviews Premier Inn London Kensington

    Good location

    from

    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.

    Friendly staff!

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    from

    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.

    Great!

    from

    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.

    Just beautiful!!!!!

    from

    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.

    Belive me!!!

    Really nice atmosphere

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    ... gift shop that was generally much more affordable. Steve decided he wanted to get me a cute bear that said "My Harrods Teddy" -yes I know Mum and Dad, another bear! The rest of the shop was amazing though, selling everything from clothes, jewelery, pastries, loaves of bread, meat and electronics. All in a beautiful building, although we did have a mild amount of trouble finding our way out.

    ... all the hotel services and also take care of the local information which makes sure that the stays in the hotel are comfortable. The Eccleston Square has great technological services and the amazing shower walls make the entire experience memorable. There are televisions which are hidden behind the bathroom mirrors and these are the small things that make the stay here exquisite.

    Memories of Travelling Solo to Dublin

    ... from rock to classical. I feel that I have music in my blood
    and as such I had a wonderful time in Dublin enjoying the ‘craic’.

    I had decided to visit Dublin after Christmas
    in March as I was told that the cost of travel was the lowest at most places
    during this time. I am glad I did so because I could attend the Festival of St.
    Patrick’s Day. I also had an affordable trip to Ireland because Ireland is
    quite a small country ...

    Today was a great royal kind of day! We caught the tube to Marble Arch and then walked along Park Lane for a bit before heading into Hyde Park. We stopped at the Australian War Memorial in London right on the edge of Hyde Park. It is a truly lovely memorial which has engraved on it all the battles in which Aussies fought and all the places from where they came. We searched and searched for ...
