Hotel Indigo London Kensington Afternoon Tea
Hotel Indigo Kensington - Mansion Bar Afternoon Tea For Two
I stayed here recently for a business trip and very much enjoyed this classy hotel for a 4 day stay. The service there is top notch - from the chocolates in your room at night, to the helpful concierge and to the bottle of water offered upon departure. The hotel itself is situation on a quiet street but is close to a lot of great restaurants, stores and attractions. Although you can easily hail a cab in front of the hotel, the South Kensington tube station is just a 5 minute walk away. Apparently there are a few hotels called "The Kensington" so you will need to state the address for the cab driver to find it.
The hotel is nicely appointed which carries into the rooms. The standard rooms are on the small side but it served my purposes. If you have the means, upgrade to a deluxe if you need more space. I've traveled to Europe several times and have noticed the lack of an alarm clock, the staple of the American hotel (along with the Gideon's Bible apparently). However, in this hotel you will notice the large flat-screen TV has the time on the lower left corner. I think you can set an alarm here but you can always call to have a wake-up call (which is done by a real person and not a machine so make sure to respond when they call you). My room overlooked the main street which made for good people watching. One of the things that is missing from the room is a desk from which to do work or eat in. There probably isn't space for one in a room that size but it would have been nice.
A few on the nice amenities are:
- the gym in the basement. It's small but with most of the expected equipment
- free wireless internet which is essential for a business trip
- computer with printer in the lobby. Great for printing out your boarding pass (and free)
- breakfast. I think it depends on your reservation but mine came with continental breakfast which was generous and a great way to start the day
This was my first stay at this boutique hotel and I hope to return on my next trip to London!Room Tip: The hotel itself is very quiet so even with the room facing the main street there was almost no nois...
