Well, this one crept up from nowhere on me. Given that I only live a relatively modest stroll from this hotel, the conversion of the former Regency Hotel into the DoubleTree by Hilton London Kensington passed me by.
The hotel has just re-opened following a £10 million refurbishment. It is located on Queens Gate (a fairly busy road with a number of hotels on it) and a very modest walk from Hyde Park and the South Kensington museums.
At present, it looks pretty cheap. On Tuesday 19th January, for example, you can get a room for £130.
The room isn’t huge – just 17 square metres. It has been fully refurbished, however. They have suites from just £175 although, at just 26 square metres, that description may be pushing it a little. There are some two-level duplex suites which may be interesting – Crowne Plaza Kensington also has some of these.
If you are looking to redeem your Hilton HHonors points, it will cost 50,000 points per night.
