Melia Kensington After an extensive refurbishment and rebranding in 2019, Melia Kensington is back to fully functioning and with improved interiors by January 2020. A boutique four star hotel in the heart of Kensington, it's close to Gloucester Road tube and within walking distance of the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Natural History Museum. With decor inspired by William Morris prints, expect timeless elegance with muted greens and gold trimmings. The Arts and Crafts protagonist has also influenced the hotel's bar menu which lists cocktails inspired by Morris' designs and love of nature. Next to the bar is SW7, the hotel's in-house restaurant, serving a fusion of Mediterranean and classic British cuisine for breakfast, brunch, Sunday lunch and dinner. The hotel's owners, the Spanish Melia group, also operate Melia White House in Regent's Park and the five star ME London in Covent Garden.
