One-night stay
This hotel was convenient walking distance from Earl's Court underground station, and the hotel staff were excellent.
Michele, ca1 night trip
Good 6.0
The hotel is nothing fancy. Rooms are small. No table or chairs which was odd and no mini-fridge. The shower water was lukewarm cold and the tubs are up on a platform making the hower head below your neck and super dangerous to get in and out of. Because we did not have a fridge and it was only 7-10 deg outside we kept our food on the outside of the window ledge. Worked well. But what hotel does not give you a mini bar??

Good 6.0
Plain and simple London hotel, no amenities.
Location was great for ease of access to tube, restaurants, pubs, grocery, coffee. Area was very walkable. Hotel was simple and tad noisy, NO Fridge ( A fridge in each room would make this hotel better ) Marks & Spencer Food close by for sandwiches, snacks, fruit, and prepared cold meals. NO Air Cond, had to ask for a fan to move air in room as windows barely opened. Staff were friendly, Little pub in hotel, never anyone in it ( Poor bar staff can’t make money ) no promotion or incentive for hotel visitors to go to the pub within. No restaurant in hotel either.

Think motel 6 not Bestwestern
The hotel is pretty rundown as far as the common areas go. It’s a 2 star hotel with updated rooms. Key card system wasn’t working so the clerk had to open your room each time. This was for the first 2 of 3 nights. Most expensive and the worst hotel of our 2 week European holiday.

Small but convient
The staff were very helpful and kind. We rented 3 standard doubles and they were all very small. To get to the other side of the bed I had to turn sideways and squeeze between the foot of the bed and the wall a space about 1ft wide. Otherwise it was clean and very conviently located.

Perfect for the price. Location Location Location!
perfect location. 3 minute walk to Earls Court Tube Station. Plenty of shops and restaurants around within walking distance. Clean, comfortable and friendly staff (particularly the Spanish lady on reception).

Don’t knock it - Great hotel!
I stayed here for 4 nights and was very surprised at how nice, clean and quiet the hotel was. Yes the rooms are small and yes the hotel is looking a bit old but these really are very minor complaints. I found the staff very helpful, my single room was spotlessly clean, the mattress was softer than i prefer, but I slept like a log and the room was extremely quiet. I was worried about the negative reports I had read about the hotel but on arrival these fears were all laid to rest. Excellent stay at an excellent price!
