I spent one week in this hotel with my boyfriend. Everything was okay - location, staff, the room. Nothing was still great so that is why I give it three stars. This is a good okay hotel if you do not spend much time in the room and and the hotel does not cost much. A bit of renovations would... More

I made my reservation from Royal Court Apartments months ago before our trip to London. I found them through booking.com but when I wrote them to check if our requirements were ok from their side, they started to write me back and offered me a different alternative. So they made me cancel my reservation from booking.com and confirmed by booking... More

RCA is located in Central London with HYDE Park and Lancaster Gate station at walking distance. Though Hotel room looks quiet old but it provides all the required facility for a couple and individual to have a comfortable stay. Hotel management takes proper care of its cleanliness. Small kitchen with all the utensils , clean bathrooms and LCD TV for... More

Room smelled of bug spray. "Adult" stain on couch and wall. Uncomfortable bed. Pretty much sums it up. Would have switched hotel had I not have pre-paid. To be fair the staff was friendly, the stay was cheap and the location is good. Would still look elsewhere.

Stayed here 4th week of Jan2013. Booked here after looking at reviews in tripadvisor and boy am I glad! We arrived early morning at Paddington station and it is walking distance from there. Booked through a major online "booking" website - the price was really good. I must say the room is great. It is about 20sqft and has a... More

This place is a strange mix of sleek/modern and tatty/neglected. This was our second stay, although we had booked a third which fell through due to illness. Our memory of Royal Court Apartments was that it was a bit rough and ready but had a great location and was an affordable option for a few nights in London. When we... More

This was my fifth visit to RCA, after a gap of almost three years. I was pleasantly surprised when I was given a very warm welcoming smile of recognition. Staff was extremely helpful and courteous. RCA is a value for money stay. The room was cozy, comfortable and adequately big. TV, Fridge, Microwave, Hot plates, Kettle were in tip-top condition.... More

The hotel was great. The room had everything we needed and even more. Our room had a kitchen with a fridge and everything so that we could cook us some food if we wanted to. The bathroom had a bathtub, which was lovely to relax in after a long shopping-trip in Covent Garden. For me and my mum, who aren't... More

We stayed for 4 nights in this hotel for the second time. Ask for renovated apartments and you will be happy. Nice people, day and night at the reception and helpful too. And it is near Paddingston train/underground station. Also welcome without a bear. A very good pub to eat around the corner is the Pride of Paddingston. Good meals... More
