Merit Kensington Hotel”

I chose this hotel based on the ease of getting to it from LHR, the pics of the bathroom, and the cost. I had no idea what the area around the hotel would be like but it was nice enough. I felt comfortable walking around. Check in was easy but I was the guy that checked me in was meh. He kept putting words in my mouth and told me the wrong floor of my room. I was happy I didn't run into him during the rest of my stay. I added in the continental breakfast and it didn't disappoint. The staff there was super nice and helpful. The woman would make fresh juices and offer it to the guests that were down there. The room I had was good for one person. It was really clean and did it's job. I'd definitely recommend this play to someone and would certainly stay there again.

It was a satisfying accommodation!”

Satisfied with the decision to stay until the end. I went with my sister and we brought two suitcases, 28 inches and 20 inches, but we were able to use them comfortably despite the small room. The bathroom was also great with good water pressure and such! There are also marts, bakeries, etc. right nearby, and it's a wealthy neighborhood, so it was okay to walk around at night! It was also very convenient to move around because it's right in front of the station. There's a Burger King nearby, but the internet connection is not good, so I recommend paying in cash instead of card payment!

What a lovely stay”

Our original Easter holiday plans were changed by family circumstances beyond our control, but two nights at the Merit Kensington gave us a mini-break. Lovely room and facilities (we pretended that the pipes we could hear were a water feature), accommodating staff, excellent breakfast, great shower and a room in which we could relax - we even enjoyed a night in and watched a film. Fantastic location, too, with easy access to museums, parks and Heathrow and lots of nice restaurants, pubs and supermarkets in the vicinity.

Lovely hotel!”

Very nicely located, clean and the staff are very nice and welcoming. When our first choice of hotel cancelled on us (as we were trying to book in!!!) we came across the Merit Hotel and we lucked out! It has turned out to be a great upgrade - and so conveniently located near Earl’s Court Underground that everywhere is easily accessible. We will be adding this to our list of hotels should we ever need to be back here (which is very likely since it is a very nice hotel!!!).
