    The rooms, the service and the quality you get at this Inn is amazing...this is definitely a 5 star plus hotel. We stay in many hotels during the year and this Inn compares to no other. We were so pleased and would recommend this Inn to everyone.

    Proximity to unique area as well as downtown and good atmosphere in hotel.

    It didn't have a hot tub.

  • Older travelers

    Great location to access shops along Kensignton Avenue and a pleasant 25 min walk along the Bow River to Eau Claire Market and Princess Island. Pleasant staff, very quiet and a large well appointed room. Price included excellent breakfast and parking.

    It was located in such a great spot. Very close to downtown. And right in the heart of bustling Kensington. Lots of very interesting shops and restaurants around every corner.

    The best part was when we arrived and they had upgraded our reservation to a suite. It was wonderful! The food was excellent and the whole experience very pleasant.

  • Group of friends

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room had plenty of space and was well appointed. The morning coffee and newspaper delivered to the outside of your room in thermoses was the best! I would stay again!

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The location was excellent, a few minutes walk from a free tram service into downtown Calgary. The Hotel was quiet, the breakfast very good and the staff were all very helpful, welcoming and engaging. I would book this hotel again if I stay in Calgary and recommend it to others. There were also plenty of eateries in Kensington Village and a wonderful walk through the riverside park into town.

  • Single
    10.0

    Beautiful large room with walk out to a patio. Breakfast is included and is excellent and beautifully served in the dining room. Good wireless access that is included in the price. The property is about a ten minute cab ride to the centre of the City - just far enough to get away from the hubub - you feel like you are staying in a funky residential neighbourhood.

    Great location with easy , access to wine bars, restaurants, shopping, and a quick taxi ride to city centre. Elegant and understated.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    Exceptional service with friendly and helpful staff. We stayed there for a week, and loved every moment of it. Breakfast is phenomenal, must try, and coffee/tea with morning paper at your door every morning. We stayed on first floor, and there was a little patio with table and a chair to enjoy evenings. This is now my choice hotel.

    noisy room (street, lobby)

    Kensington Riverside Inn is a beautiful, cozy, intimate accommodation in a city atmosphere. My husband had to be in Calgary on business and we had the day on Saturday to relax so selected this place because of positive reviews on the web, and the location, as well as the value compared to other accommodations. We were looking for an atmospheric place. Kri fit the bill and we loved the decor, the friendly, accommodating service, and the excellent breakfast. We liked that breakfast was served until 1:00 on weekends, so there was no rush on Saturday morning. The bed was very comfortable. The rooms were a nice size. Liked the fireplace in the room. The Inn was elegant and comfortable--didn't feel like a hotel. The people working there were very warm and helpful.

    I thought the rooms could have had better lighting. I like the option of having a bright room day or night, and I need a bright light for reading. I would have liked to have known before we arrived that renovations were going on. We had a room right next to renovations which started a little before 9:00 on our one morning to relax. Hammering, drilling-- even if we weren't sleeping, it was annoying! They very kindly moved us to another room so that our afternoon could be enjoyed in the room--they had been fully booked the night before so we were glad there was a quiet room available for the Saturday afternoon. We would not have been able to stay in the original room with the amount of noise.

    The staff are reall accomodating and cannot do enough to help. One of the nicest features is each morning they leave you freshly made tea or coffee outside your room - it seems like nothing much but makes a real difference whilst you are getting ready! Breakfast is lovely - but quite rich - they could do with some healthier options.

    It's a lovely boutique hotel, perfect for a short trip. Would love it if they had soy milk offered.... I had to keep going round the corner to Starbucks for a coffee!!
