To cut a long story short, they were trying to fill up their horrible hotel in Earls Court, hardly Kensington. I spent... More

Room was filthy and stank, it was supposed to have a desk, but it was so small there wasn't even anywhere to put a suitcase let alone a desk. Not... More

Rooms were cleaned everyday and housekeeping was up to the mark. everything was perfect for me given the location of the hotel is a minute's walk from Paddington Central... More

Stayed there for 45 days approx. Location wise it is perfect. Staff is helping and friendly. Fits in your budget and breakfast provided is very good. You get all the big small things in house. They also arrange for cabs and offer good advice on the places to visit and eating joints. It is less than 100 meters from the... More

Stayed here in summer. The room is so small you can not open your suitcase anywhere but on the bed. Bathroom is so small that I could not lift my arms above my head without opening the shower door. Terrible water pressure. Curled up floor covering in bathroom and I tripped on it. Cigarette butts on the window sill and... More
