TripAdvisor Rating


In the heart of London’s upscale Kensington neighborhood is a luxurious boutique property, Rydes. Standard rooms are small, but comfortable, and feature stand-up showers, coffee makers, and free Wi-Fi. However, the rooms can only accommodate two people. While suites are larger and provide a separate living and sleeping area, as well as bathtubs in the bathrooms, they also only sleep two. Families will need to book multiple rooms when staying at this property. Afternoon team is offered at the Jam Cupboard Restaurant, which touts itself as a New York-style bar. (If you wanted to try an American-themed spot while in the U.K.) It is also the spot for breakfast and dinner, and closes for lunch. A small gym is available.

Nice hotel and excellent staff

by Stephen Z R

The hotel is close to the underground and numerous restaurants. It was a bit challenging to stay during the renovations and power outages. The elevator does not have a battery backup in case of emergency. We lost a day of our vacation due to the loss of power but management came through in the end with an acceptable form of compensation. Most appreciated! The staff is so friendly and obliging. Would stay again.

You all went above and beyond

We stayed mid October. This hotel was booked for a wedding party and was rather apprehensive as we were informed the hotel would still be under renovations. However Noelia reassured us it would not impact our say. They kindly allocated a private area for our wedding party to have post celebration champagne. Upgraded both sets of parents rooms free of charge. Nothing was too much trouble and all the staff were amazing. We had the suite and although this had not been renovated, we felt like it didn’t need doing it was immaculate so I’m sure it will be amazing when renovated. Thank you to Noelia and her wonderful team in helping make our special day even more special and also a huge thank you for the bottle of bubbly and chocolates you put in our room for us to enjoy. Lovely touch.
