Hotel Review: Holiday Inn London – Kensington High Street


Recently I had the chance to stay at one of IHG’s latest additions to their London hotel portfolio, the Holiday Inn London – Kensington High Street. This property, previously known as the Kensington Close Hotel, was rebranded to Holiday Inn at the beginning of 2017.

The property is located steps away from the Kensington tube station and Kensington High Street,still in central London: close enough and at the same time away enough from the most popular touristic areas of the city. The location together with its price (around GBP 120/night) makes this property a good choice when looking for mid-range hotels in such an expensive city as London.
