Live the London life at base2stay Kensington

What I loved about this accommodation;

  • It’s in a lovely, safe area of London, I felt very safe walking home as solo female from the tube station at 11pm at night.  Quiet, affluent area but close enough to the tube.
  • There’s a brilliant selection of rooms incuding the very elusive Single room.  Adult bunks too if you want to keep your costs down with chums but want a high standard of accommodation.  Flexible family solutions are available, including bunk/double “suite” or large family room with sofa chairs/beds.
  • Extremely comfortable beds, linens and pillows as well as dark curtains. Very easy to get a good nights sleep.
  • Lovely big spacious bathrooms with huge shower cubicles, baths in the deluxe rooms.
  • A sense of “having your own place” – there’s a mini kitchen with crockery and cutlery – feel free to come and go as you please – whatever time you like and to bring in as much food as you want.  There’s plenty of in room catering – a number of the local restaurants stand in for the “room-service” function so you can still have a quiet meal in the room.


base2stay Kensington is the flagship venture of a unique hotel concept setting the trend for stylish, value-led accommodation.  The hotel is located in the fashionable areas of Kensington and Chelsea, with excellent public transport links to the main airports and railway stations from Earl’s Court underground station, which is just a few minutes walk away.




Many of London’s major attractions are close by, including The Royal Albert Hall, the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum, The Victoria & Albert Museum, Kensington Palace and Earls Court Exhibition Centre. World class shopping in Knightsbridge – the home of Harrods and Harvey Nichols – is only a short distance away.


With all the convenient facilities around Earls Court, this is the ideal location for base2stay’s unique concept of four-star comfort, design and service, without a bar or restaurant.  With a mini-kitchen in every room, vending machine at high street prices rather than expensive mini-bars, in-room on-screen directories to help guests shop or order in, and base2stay’s exclusive discounts at many surrounding restaurants, cafes and bars, the concept delivers fantastic value for visitors and encourages them to explore the city.  This means guests can decide where and how they want to spend their money, spreading the benefits throughout the local area, in keeping with base2stay’s ethos of social sustainability.
