Positive Reviews

Great proximity to tube and places to eat

City Continental Kensington is just two minutes from Earls Court tube station, which can take you to almost anywhere in central London and also goes direct to Heathrow on the Piccadilly line It is also next to a very busy road and there are plenty of places to eat and drink, or a Marks & Spencer’s food shop for something on the go.

A budget London hotel that doesn’t fit the stereotype!

Unlike other budget hotels in London that are over-priced and miserable, this one has modern rooms and good amenities The beds are really comfortable, the showers have good pressure and although the rooms may be a little on the small side, they have the basics of what you need for a short visit And all for a reasonable price.

Good service, good breakfast, good stay

The staff are friendly, helpful and will respond to requests promptly Rooms are simple, clean and tidy with good bathrooms The continental breakfast is good and there’s plenty of it!

Negative Reviews

Strange layout - you might be in the basement!

The rooms at this hotel are very, very small It seems as though the staff move double beds into twin rooms to accommodate families, but then there isn’t enough space to do anything other than sleep! Some of the rooms are in the basement, and some are in a separate building entirely But if this doesn’t bother you then it’s just fine for a budget hotel.

Slow Wi-Fi not suitable for business guests

The Wi-Fi at the hotel is very slow and weak If you’re visiting on business and need to get anything done online you might struggle There is also no phone in the rooms so bring your mobile.

Breakfast selection limited and disorganised

There is no shortage of quantity at the breakfast buffet but the selection is very ordinary and unimaginative The whole breakfast room is a muddle, with the food served in an odd order, tables very cramped together and the occasional cutlery shortage! Best advice is to get in early.
