I have stayed at this hotel three times this year! I stayed in Jan, then again in May and recently again in July. It is in a great location, right next to Earls Court st and main bus routes (74 towards Oxford st and C1 towards Westfield) plus High St Kensington is within walking distance. The rooms are clean and... More

I stayed in this hotel for a week in early August. I really enjoyed my stay, yet there was some cons. Pros: the service was extremely nice and helpful, our room was really clean and the location was terrific. There were lots of grocery stores and nice restaurants in Earl's Court, and the tube station was just a few steps... More

I stayed here for the last 8 nights while in London for my very first visit. I really liked this hotel, I didn't mind the small rooms (Europe is known for this and really what do we need that extra room for?!), they were clean and although I was initially visited about the sound I slept well. The beds are... More

I use this hotel in transit as I sometime arrive London late and this hotel is a short ride by Piccadilly Line underground from Heathrow and a 4 minute walk from station. The rooms are very small but well-equipped and has free wifi, tea maker, and breakfast is included, and good that the price can be very low for London.... More

The room was a bit on the small size, but I not in London to stay in my room. The room was clean and that's the most impotent thing to me! Tea and coffee in the room, that I really liked. Because there is nothing better when you have been out all day shopping and walking around in the cold... More

Hotel is located in Earls Court, convenient to travel around London. Lots of restaurant in the area; even found Filipino Buffet/Store couple blocks away; not far either from Picadilly. WIFI is awesome! Air condition works very well but the room are quite small. The lift is confusing as too many doors to open to be connected to your room. The... More

Situated on a quiet road just round the corner from Earls Court, this was one of many small hotels. Clean frontage with pretty floral display. At the end of the road there were numerous pubs/eateries/off licence/supermarkets/earls court station. We were given a basement room. My immediate thought was that it was going to be dark. The room was pleasant. Clean,... More
