Set in the heart of one of London’s most desirable neighbourhoods, The Kensington’s grand stucco façade is characteristic of this affluent 19th Century district, which is home to cultural treasures like the Natural History Museum, the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Royal Albert Hall, with the green spaces of Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park and world-famous stores such as Harrods and Harvey Nichols only a short walk away. With open fires found in nearly all the hotel’s ground floor reception rooms, entering The Kensington feels rather like walking through the doors of a lovingly restored London mansion.
