Set in a meticulously restored 1876 Victorian townhouse in London’s trendy South Kensington neighborhood, the Millennium Bailey’s Hotel London Kensington offers an elegantly traditional home base combined with contemporary comforts. Think sweeping staircases and stained glass windows set against stately, classic British furnishings.
Services and Amenities
As one of London's oldest hotels, the Millennium Bailey's Hotel London Kensington offers both standard rooms and suites that are more spacious than one's average London hotel accommodations. Standard amenities include a business and fitness center, 24 hour room service, 'Ask Alfred' (a children's concierge service), and a staff that will happily arrange theater tickets and airport transfers. After a day of sightseeing, guests are encouraged to wind down at the on-site Olive's Bar or enjoy an authentic Italian meal at Olive’s Restaurant. It should be noted that the restaurant also offers set lunch and pre-theater menus for a particularly good value.
Within short walking distance of the Millennium Bailey’s Hotel London Kensington are the triumvirate of the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Science Museum, and the Natural History Museum. Kensington Palace, at the western end of Hyde Park, is just a little farther. Guests can also easily take in a concert at the Royal Albert Hall, or take the underground -- which stops just up the street at Gloucester Road -- to London's West End for a night at the theater.
Location, opposite the Gloucester Road tube stop and a great Pub across the street. Easy walk to Kensington Park and some South Kensington restaurants, otherwise take the tube across the street. Staff was quite helpful when airlines lost our luggage for 30 hours.
Slow wi-fi in the older section
Location in Gloucester Road and the Station was excellent.Ammbience of the hotel and the hotel staff was very good
Olives Restaurant. We were delayed for an evening meal and we had to walk out before eating to go to the theatre
The only fault shower was abismal in room 535, severe lack of water pressure
The hotel had character and was not like a chain hotel. The location was within walking distance of a lot of things to do in the city but it wasn't in the middle of all the action.
I found the hot water in the bathroom to be unpredictable and often ran cold unexpectedly.
Very convenient for Underground and taxis and walking to Knightsbridge and the Royal Albert Hall. Restaurant was good and comfortable at lunchtime.
Breakfast was disorganised and over-crowded, as well as overpriced. I would recommend taking breakfast in one of the neighbouring cafes.
The location was ideal for my purpose.
The room was very small indeed. The lounge/bar area was poortly lit and extremely noisy with either canned music or even louder live music. Breakfast is not included in the pricec and was very expensive. It's better to buy a sandwich at the supermarket across the road.
Internet Connetions was very bad !
Location was perfect, just a short tube ride to everything. Lots of nice cafes & pubs near by.
The Lifts, there were 3 but only one working, so it was waiting forever for a full lift and wait until they piled out before it came back down empty again.
Closeness to tube station
Location and fair sized room with good bathroom.
Considering the substantive room rate it is annoying that you have to pay 8£/hr for internet
We liked everything. The room and bathroom were lovely (we had a club room), well furnished, spacious, comfortable and elegant.
