Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Premier - pwuk Standards at their best.
I travel a lot with work and stay in a variety of hotels. Quite often I am left underwhelmed, where housekeeping or maintenance standards are lacking, however in the case of Hotel Indigo, London Kensington - Earl's Court, quite frankly I was blown away.
The standards of decoration are first rate. Better yet the standards of housekeeping were astonishingly great - the staff are friendly too. I cannot praise this hotel highly enough and in my view it outperforms various five star establishments with ease.
Keep up the excellent work and thank you.

This was a much more interesting stay than an ordinary Holiday Inn and definitely worth a stay on points. Rather grown up decor and style, so possibly not first choice as a family stay. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Very handy for Earls Court.
The breakfast menu was a welcome change from the regular and boring. I wanted to stay longer to try out more of the menu.
I really liked this hotel and look forward to coming back. I want to see other rooms as ours was fab!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JohnV31 Nice Hotel but noisy rooms
Had a good stay apart from the lack of sleep due to the noise coming from the fans outside and work being done in the room 10 next door.
I did mention this to reception who said they would credit my account with some bonus points however these have yet to show up
All the staff were great and I would stay here again but ask for a quite room...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GAMMO Beyond my expectations!!
Just spent one night at this hotel on 23 jan but was exceptionally impressed. Was upgraded as an IHG platinum member to a really nice executive suite....had everything one needed and more...safe,.iron, bathrobes,slippers, tons of space, enough plug sockets, decent TV selection, Aveda toiletries, great bathroom with a super shower.
Also a little free mini bar with 3 little bottles of wine which I didn't sample ( they looked decent) and a bottle each of Victorian lemonade and orange juice which I tried but didn't much like!
A little glitch at checkout took place where I was provided a VAT bill despite having stayed for points ( free) but the senior front desk staff member quickly sorted this out on my raising a query.
ALL IN ALL, A VERY SATISFYING STAY!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by alaincoffee Great hotel a shame of the impersonal check out
Third time in this hotel and it is still a great hotel with nice, comfortable and big (to London standards at least) rooms.
Normally the staff is very nice however this time I had the most impersonal check out I have ever had.
Not addressed by name, no change to review the invoice and no thank you for staying and see you next time.
A self check out machine would have been as efficient and friendly as this check out.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BJOAN44 Excellent Accomodation for a younger clientel
Very good overall with excellent staff service and room amenities. Food is very innovative and well presented. Music played in the hotel lounge and dining areas, however, is loud and distracting at times. Electronic-techno, hip-hop, music is not appropriate for evening dining. Because of it we only dined once in the hotel in a 6 day stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by abergc42 Excellent as usual.. one issue noise from builders
I had a stay marred by one issue the early morning noise from hammering directly outside my room, 303. I paid for an upgrade for my 2 days London vacation 8 -10th January..
Unfortunately I was not told that the 3rd floor area where I stayed would be under renovation work.. with a lot of painting and hammering directly outside my room 303 door.. this made leisurely lie-ins impossible, I could not relax... the noise was bad and meant had to leave the room..
The hotel is one I really like and stay frequently.. I had looked forward to a vacation stay for once..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marion50 Great location for short break in central London
We were a party of 4 with 2 double rooms.
The room overlooked a mews type garden. Room was very quiet for such a central London location with hardly any traffic noise. The hotel is located just a few minutes walk from Earl's Court tube station. The room was clean, stylishly decorated with a large comfortable king sized bed. En suite facilities were excellent.
Staff were courteous and very helpful. There was a great choice for breakfast; all of which was cooked to a very high standard, excellent quality.
We would definitely stay here again and would recommend the hotel to others.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrsFitz Brilliant Yet Again
Our 3rd stay at this hotel and it didn't disappoint!
We decided to spend Christmas here and it was a great decision. The staff really do make this place - Antonella, Luiza, Eva, the girls on Reception, Housekeeping etc - every single person goes out of their way to ensure that you have a fabulous stay with them. The staff are interested in their guests but are not intrusive. We were greeted like old friends and that feeling lasted for the 3 nights we were there.
The rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable, the bar staff knowledgeable, housekeeping maintain the rooms and public areas to a really good standard and the reception staff are always on hand and go out of their way to help in whatever way possible to make your stay stress-free, which is what we needed.
We can't wait to go back!
A big THANK YOU to every member of staff for looking after us - you made our stay thoroughly enjoyable

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oliver Hunter Good location, great hotel, just a bit noisy!
friendly and helpful staff
Excellent location 2 mins from Tube entrance and then only 10 mins from the main tourist areas.
Rooms was a very good space, and the look was classy.
Hot chocolate in the evening was a very nice touch!
As others have said, breakfast is a split between buffet (continental) and a la cart (hot items off the menu). So it was a bit slow, but when it did arrive was It tasty.
Our room was split on three levels, about 3 inches difference in each (bed was level lower than TV area, and this was higher than bathroom area). Too late to fix as the hotel has only opened, but this meant that moving in the room, especially at night, I kept tripping over the 3 inch steps between room sections.
Also an issue was that the bedhead backed onto a lift shaft - lots of noise coming through, maintainance or just thin walls?
Did mention to front of staff who dealt with this issue as best as they could - comp. Breakfast, which was more than I expected.
Would stay again, but perhaps not in a room next to the lift shaft!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Benx Charming, comfortable and well located
Nice 1 night stay in this charming and well located hotel. Couple of minutes away from Earl's court station, many restaurants and bars next door. Hotel has been recently renewed and has great amenities. Nice stylish bathroom, good bed and electronic amenities. Also nice to give soft drinks and snacks for free in minibar.
Only negative point would be the access if you carry heavy or many luggage. The hotel has many fire doors everywhere which are not easy to get through with bags. Not doorman at entrance either.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bluesky668 Winter in London
Pros: Good location. Close to Subway and restaurants. walking distant to near by museums.
Cons: Our room is on the first floor at the far end. It is a bit challenge for us to move our luggage from the lobby to our room as we have to go through narrow hallways, and stairs before reaching to our room.
We brought breakfast with our room and we enjoy our breakfasts and we think the value is great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ThomasG The best hotel in Kensington
I had never stayed before at Indigo Hotels within the IHG brands portfolio, but I have to say this is the greatest hotel in Kensington.
The room itself a time journey back to Victorian times with the latest state-of-art facilities to 21st century travellers need. The staff is very helpful and co-operatieve and they always smile! Great value for money in a familiar atmosphere.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WorthingUK Almost perfect...
Great location - 10 mins walk to Kensington High St, 2 min walk to the nearest tube stop.
Hotel is very well kept and does the quirky boutique thing brilliantly! Front desk staff friendly, polite and efficient.
Room was huge, immaculate and well stocked. We did stay on a Saturday evening so noticed noise from returning late night revellers - mainly doors banging which I accept is pretty unavoidable.
One sour note - the bar staff were fairly surly and they had run out of several items on the drinks menu which is a) unforgivable in Central London b) baffling that they couldn't organise an ad-hoc replacement offering.
Breakfast is highly recommended - worth including in your booking.
It would have been a 5-star without the disappointing bar experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Laurs81 6th December
The room was lovely (room 3)... And the staff generally helpful and attentive. Unfortunately we were on the ground floor where a Christmas party was also taking place, this didn't finish until 2.30am. It was quite noisy until then and we were unable to sleep through it.
This coupled with the fact that the walls seemed very thin and our neighbour decided to play music on from 8am the next day resulted in a very bad nights sleep.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by checkettsr Won't stay anywhere else
Just a charming hotel. They genuinely look after you. A lot of thought has gone into the how the hotel is run. There's no scimping on the little luxuries - the rooms even come with free chilled refreshments. I have to stay in London for two or three nights a week, and I always stay here. Even on the one occassion I had a problem with a room, they moved heaven and earth to put the problem right. Cannot recommend highly enough.

This is my new favourite hotel in London!
Couldn't get any closer to the tube station. It was the small details that made it for me such as the free mini bar, the heated mirror in the bathroom, the reading lights in the bed and USB ports, etc. It's such a fabulous boutique hotel! I will be back again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KellyMcc89 Amazing..amazing...amazing!!!
Stayed at Hotel Indigo London Kensington Earls Court on 23rd November 2013 on leisure, and this is by far the most amazing hotel I have ever stayed in. I travel to hotels lots so I know a thing or two when it comes to great hotels, great service and an all round amazing stay. And this hotel has it!
Firstly, the location couldn't be better! 2mins walk from Earls Court tube station, just a few stops from all the sites. Neighbourhood is very safe and friendly.
The staff went out of their way to make our stay great and our room was amazing! Not one fault to mention. Breakfast was also divine!
Excellent value, excellent service and a fantastic product.
Will definitely be returning soon. Thanks again Hotel Indigo!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Neil99 Great hotel with old fashioned values
An excellent hotel in a great location just a short walk from Earls Court tube station.
The young receptionist Lady Marley (?) is a delight and made me and my colleague feel extremely welcome upon our arrival. I have stayed there before and again checked in last night and was dealt in the same way by this young lady (In hope I got her name right - she has blonde hair). It is a genuine pleasure to encounter someone with such excellent customer skills.
Room was great and the breakfast superb!
