The Rockwell is situated in London's popular Kensington area, 10 minutes from the Gloucester Road Tube station, 5 minutes from Earl's Court Tube and a 30-minute drive from London Heathrow.
"All I Needed!"
I had a quick one night stay at the Rockwell in Kensington. The location is fantastic, wifi very fast and reliable. I probably had the smallest room in the hotel, but it was all I needed for a place to sleep. The room was clean, bright and modern. No complaints!
"Great location, nice staff, decent room"
The location was fantastic, with only a short walk to Earls Court underground. The rooms were large and clean, modern and only slightly on the dated side. Bathroom was spotless, though the shower was tiny and there was no ledge for shampoo / soap which was annoying. The staff at the front desk was very pleasant. Overall a nice stay. I'd book again and would definitely recommend for a few nights stay in London. Happy travels...
"Quiet and Enjoyable Stay!"
As a student studying at LAMDA I was looking for a budget friendly place that could ease my transition into this new country. I found all of this and more at the Rockwell. The superb staff and excellent accommodations were perfect for my stay. Everyone was very attentive and had answers for me when it came to finding restaurants and having a travel adapter accessible. It truly was a pleasure staying there and I look forward to my next stay!
"Excellent WIFI, Welcoming personnel, Delicious food, Nice and spacious room and beautiful restaurant (and lobby)interior"
I had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. The personnel was very welcoming and helpful. I was upgraded to a superior single room (for free). The room and the bathroom were well heated, the room is equipped with a big TV and many channels to choose from. The room and the bathroom were spacious and quite bigger than a usual single room in a 4 star (or 3 star) hotel in London). The WIFI connection is excellent, which is rarely the case in London hotels, at least not in this price range. The restaurant (and lobby) interior is beautiful, which makes it a pleasant place to spend time in. The food is delicious and very reasonably priced, and the service team is absolutely in the top. You can order food at any time throughout the day and in the evening. I you have breakfast included then it is a buffet, which provides a variety of options - the full English breakfast consisting of scrambled eggs, delicious and a really good quality sausages, meat with essentially no fat instead of bacon, baked beans, baked tomatoes, various sliced cold meats, 3 kind of juices, a lot of fresh fruits, yoghurts, jam, different kinds of freshly baked bread, delicious croissants and other pastries and bakery products - I haven’t been able to try everything during my 3-days stay. In addition to that they have different newspapers in the lobby and the restaurant that you are allowed to take into your room. The hotel has room service -indeed twice a day, if you like.
"Super kind and professional staff"
I have stayed in many hotels in this area (from small B&B to large chains), but The Rockwell is the first I know that I will go back to next time! The main reason being the great staff, who went out of their way to be kind, helpful and accommodating. I stayed in a superior single room, which was small, but really well designed, so it was comfortable and not cramped (it was bigger than many single rooms I have experienced in London...). The bed was large and comfortable, the room was spotlessly clean, the wifi worked perfectly, it was really nice and quiet, so it also ticked all the boxes. The location is ideal, just a short walk away from many great museums, shopping streets and restaurants. But the key is the Earls Court tube station that is just a few min down the road and make getting anywhere (including the Airport) really simple and easy.
