Hotel Indigo London Kensington – Earl’s Court
Hotel Indigo Kensington-Earl’s Court is located in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. The hotel design reflects the locale and reanimates the Victorian manor that the building once was. Many of the 100 guestrooms overlook English gardens and the artwork captures the building’s original staircases and stained glass windows.
