A hotel easy to get to and located not to far from Earl's Court station. We visited London for one night with a group of four. We had the executive en suite room in the basement that was quite o.k. Enough space and the en suite bathroom was spacious enough. The shower was excellent. Our other fellow travelers had a... More

We chose this hotel because its close to Earls Court tube station (4 mins walk) which is in Zone . . . and the pictures looked good. However don't believe everything you see because the hotel is tired and in desperate need of a facelift. Holes in carpets, pealing paper and doors with no handles. It was impossible to actually...

Room is dingy and tired. Mattress has several springs sticking out making it extremely uncomfortable. Just phoned down to reception to ask if we can swap rooms. No! Told them why and response was nothing we can do with no apology. I will be asking for a refund in the morning but at midnight there's not a lot of other... More

We must have dropped lucky compared to the other people who have reviewed. The staff were friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We liked the fact we could grab a coffee in the communal room as we found it easier. The room was fine, no complaints. Ideally situated, just a short walk from Earls Court tube. At our request the...

Double room was 10ft x 7ft. Ensuite had a shower that only teenagers could actually get into. TV didn't work. Tea and Coffee facility is on the ground floor which is bearable if your room is. However if your room is on the third floor it's a tad insensitive to send your wife down in the lift in her robe.... More

The location is very good in quite and safe area. Breakfast is included and good to start the day. But very limited selections are available. Internet connection is very good. Rooms are small. Not perfectly clean. Old furniture and old beds. Rooms on the main road were so noisy Staff was so friendly and helpful. Require refurbishment

We booked just for one day in this hotel near Kensington at the end of zone 1 of London metro. We chosen it for the position, not certainly for the price or the services. Price indeed was not comparable with the service, 100 pounds, for a really small old double room where is really uncomfortable to move, with a small... More

Once again I find myself questioning why an establishment has such a low scoring. I stayed here for a 2 week business trip, and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay! I arrived after a hell on earth tube experience; the hotel is a short walk from Earls Court tube station. The check in staff were friendly and informative, check in was... More

Location - quiet neighborhood, very close to the Earl's Court Tube Station. Few restaurants and supermarkets are in 5mins walk distance. Night bus stops in the front of the hotel. Room size, cleanliness, sleep quality - probably even below average but nothing more can be expected for this price in London. However, breakfast is okay and the staff is polite.

Room tiny, shabby, felt dirty, claustrophobic. Breakfast was chaotic; manager was loud and rude. Restaurant staff did not speak any English. Reception staff friendly enough and tried to be helpful. It is not a nice place to stay so I can't imagine it is a nice place to work and this certainly comes across. I would really recommend paying a... More

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
