Firstly this hotel was a fair price for the location and standard of accommodation. Situated on a very quiet road, this hotel is just a few minutes walk from Earl's Court Tube station (which connects you with the Piccadilly, Central and District lines). Also, just a few minutes left or right from the end of this road are a range... More

I had read some negative reviews. I thought this hotel was very good value for the money. Staff were friendly and helpful. My room was at the back and not in the hotel. It was great. Quiet and working aircon.

The location of the hotel was great, particularly for the concert that the trip had been primarily booked for! There were also some nice bars, clubs in the area for afterwards. The hotel was nice and clean. Breakfast was continental style, which was also nice. Pleasant stay all in all, and reasonable price for location.

Stayed here on a trip to an Earls Court convention. Given the general standard of budget London hotels -especially in this area -I wasn't expecting much, but actually I thought it was great. Just a few minutes from the exhibition centre, small but very well equipped, nicely furnished room, decent free wifi and an adequate continental breakfast. Friendly staff as... More

I've stayed at this hotel before, but during my recent stay I noticed some improvements that make it better than satisfactory. As far as budget accommodation in London goes, this is the best I've seen. The renovations they were working on a couple of years ago are obviously completed. My room looked very new and the bathroom was very clean... More

We stayed in this Hotel at the end of our trip. The only good thing about this hotel is the location. This hotel located near the Tube station Earl's Court where you can go to most of the attractions using District line and Piccadilly Line. Breakfast is poor.

Had a 3-night stay from 20-23 March 2014 and I can only say it has to be one of the best stays overall that I have had in London. I chose the hotel because the price was the best I could find for the time and for convenience locationwise to Earls Court - for the Ideal Home Exhibition; and indeed,... More
