    About

    Located in trendy Kensington, not too far from expansive Hyde Park, the Kensington Close hotel oozes quintessential British charm. After opening its doors in 1960 (previously the space was a private club, founded in 1937) the hotel is situated on land supposedly once co-owned by Sir Isaac Newton, nearly 300 years ago.

    Amenities and Services

    The hotel’s location in the picturesque borough of Kensington and Chelsea makes it a popular destination for weddings and other events, and a dedicated event staff ensures successful functions. Kensington Close's Lounge Bar is a well-known spot for a classic cocktail in a well decorated but intimate environment. After an aperitif, indulge across the way at the hotel's Boulevard Restaurant, which serves full English breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Caffe Musetti, meanwhile, is perfect for a coffee on the go. Kensington Close Health Club and Spa boasts a pool, gym, Jacuzzi, sauna, and exercise classes, and is accessible for a low daily surcharge.

    Attractions

    With Kensington High Street on the doorstep of the hotel, guests need not wander far to enjoy some of the best shopping in London. Also within walking distance are the splendors of the Science Museum and Natural History Museum, and the impressive Kensington Palace and Gardens. The hotel is a short commute via taxi or tube from the excitement of Oxford Street and the West End theaters.
