The four-star K+K Hotel provides luxurious accommodation within a Victorian building in a quiet residential area of Kensington, close to Earl's Court and Olympia. Set in a stunning Victorian building, typical of the safe area it is situated in; the K+K Hotel hides a secret behind its austere facade. Unlike many of the other hotels in the area, The K+K has its own private, peaceful garden for residents, a real plus in this bustling city, so you can enjoy drinks amongst the directional topiary, relax with a book on the manicured lawn, or simply take a constitutional, as the Victorians would have done.
The K+K has 154 well-appointed rooms, available in Classic or Executive styles. All rooms reflect the peace of the surrounding residential area, with a neutral colour palette in stones and creams and minimalist clean lines to maintain an edge of urban chic. To ensure the modern traveller has all they need, rooms are equipped with air conditioning, a direct-dial telephone, mirror, satellite TV, tea and coffee making facilities and a free WIFI connection. All rooms at the K+K George Hotel have an elegant private bathroom and the majority of units are non-smoking so you can breathe easy.
There is a well-equipped business lounge at the K+K George Hotel and private on site parking, out of the London Congestion Charge zone, is available for an additional fee. Breakfast is available to all visitors, in the restaurant, which overlooks the K+K George Hotel's well-presented garden. Evening meals are not catered for, but as you are staying in one of the most diverse culinary cities in the world, you only have to walk a few paces out of the hotel door to find something delicious. The Abingdon's gastro-pub food or Wagamama's selection of noodles will keep rumbling stomachs at bay.
The K+K George Hotel is in the perfect spot to allow guests to attend exhibitions and trade events at Earl's Court and Olympia Exhibition Centres. Previously home to circuses and prisoners of war, nowadays, the centres are known for their vast fairs and dramatic shows, such as The Ideal Home Show, The Wedding Show and the London International Horse Show, where you can see world-class show jumping. In nearby Kensington, which is just a short tube stop away, you can visit some of London's best museums such as The Victoria & Albert and The Natural History Museum; tour Kensington Palace, home to royals throughout the ages including Princess Diana and Queen Victoria; and take in a musical extravaganza at The Royal Albert Hall. Locally, there are some great venues to provide the evening's entertainment, from The Troubadour Cafe, with its weighty musical legacy to the Finborough Theatre for award-winning plays by new writers and the Cine Lumiere, where you can ponder some avant-garde, European films.
The hotel also enjoys a superb location for transport in and out of London, lying just a few minutes north of Earl's Court tube station, where you can catch the District Circle and Piccadilly lines. From here you have direct links to Paddington Station (where the Heathrow Express terminates); Victoria Station (where the Gatwick Express terminates); King's Cross, St Pancras Station (where the Eurostar terminus is located); and many more areas of London. If you are driving to the hotel, it can be accessed from the main A4 road, via the M4 and M25, and if you want a cheaper option than hotel parking, an NCP car park in Pembroke Road is just a few minutes walk away.
The K+K Hotel has been universally praised by previous guests, who have been impressed by the facilities and the friendly and attentive service given by the staff, as well as the attention to detail, such as offering different plug adaptors to international guests. A view over the garden is recommended if you can get one, however, it seems that no matter where you are placed in the hotel, you'll have a lovely stay. Plenty of character, a delicious breakfast and a superb location all combine to make this a perfect resting point in West London.
