Spacious room and bathroom by European standards, beds were comfortable and location was just superb for transportation and sightseeing. Really like the convenience for breakfast and lunch and grocery. Dinner options are just 5-10 min walk also. Front desk staff and housekeeping were very helpful and kind.

Great Location, Great Amenities, Excellent Service

Pros: The Loft room with two TVs was excellent for a family of four. The morning breakfast was great too, included in the room rate we paid.
Cons: The TV programing was horrible. A bathroom on both floors would have been nice.
Location: Glouster Rd stop is convienent to tourist locations. Walk & Dine at Da Mario's where Princess Di was known to take her boys. Also Pappa Roma is good.
We enjoyed this hotel. It was located just off the Glouster Tube stop on the Picadilly line, good restraunts within walking distence. We had a loft room which was excellent for a family of four. Morning breakfast and afternoon happy hour was an excellent feature for a family of four as well. The staff was amazing, they really went above and beyond the call of duty many times. I don't know if we'd stay at another location if we returned to London.

Crowne Plaza London

Enjoyed our stay. We had a room overlooking the garden and it was very quiet. Also, the Underground system had a station across the street which mad getting around London very convenient.

Stayed again!

This is our 2nd time staying at Crowne Plaza Kensington before reurning home to USA - same great experience! Great Staff, CLEAN room, and delicious buffet breakfast! The breakfast package is definitely worth it. No hassle in the morning & off you go for sightseeing or in our case, back It's also to Heathrow on the Piccadilly line. We could have stayed by the Airport, however staying here was well worth it. Thanks Crowne Plaza Staff!
