We stayed here for 1 night before we flew home. We got a free upgrade to a bigger and nicer room. The room was modern and spacious with very comfy beds! Free, fast wifi was available in all rooms. The bathroom had a shower over the bath and was very clean with fluffy towels. The hallways are like a rabbit... More

I stayed one night at Best Western Burns whilst on transit. The hotel is very easy to access from London Heathrow via the underground rail (the tube). Just take the Piccadilly Line train from the terminal and get off at the Earl's Court station and the hotel is 4 min walk from the station. I was given a twin bed... More

Very close to the tube station, park, pubs & restaurants. Staff very pleasant but lift small and slow. Sometimes it was easier to use the stairs. Bedroom was very compact and reasonable clean. Not so bad for central London. Good value of money.

This smallish hotel has very nice location with park on the other side of the road. There are also plenty of other hotels near By, as well restaurants (the pub in the next corner, The Blackbird, is absolutely worth visiting, for example for dinner). Earls' Court underground station is only 200m's away from the hotel (remember to use the other... More

We booked this hotel for four nights for it's position. Bad mistake. We were given a Basement room with twin beds, not double as requested, the view from the window were legs of people walking past. No aircon, we were given a very small desk fan to cool the room. It was hot!!! London was having a heat wave with... More

We stayed here for one night on a leisure break. Very clean well presented hotel with helpful polite staff. We were upgraded to a large double room which had an extremely comfortable bed and tea and coffee making facilities. En suite room was a little small but had a good functioning shower and large basin. Full english breakfast was cooked... More

Very friendly staff, good location. Competitively priced. Certainly not a luxury hotel, but they try hard to make your stay enjoyable. Sure would be nice if they had air conditioning, but the small fan provided made things a little better. Overall, a pleasant stay.

London hotels are known for their high prices. This one seemed to provide good value at the time I was making the booking. I'll try to structure my impressions: Location Superb! Just 3 min walk from Earls Court station - quick to get to most landmarks. Cafes and shops nearby. Room Quite small, squeaky floor, a bit dusty. The bed... More
