First, don't let the name "Lord Jim" give you fanciful imaginings of Conrad's book, nor the front entrance of this hotel make you believe it is a normal hotel. It is not. If you set your expectations to a really nice youth hostel, you are going to be happy. The good first: 1. there will be bed(s) 2. you may... More

My Partner and I stayed here for 5 nights and I must say we had good value for our money. The rooms were a bit small, but adequate and very quiet. The friendly staff more than made up for any inconveniences. They were very helpful in giving us information about where to go and how to get there. The bathroom... More

This is a budget hotel so don't expect the Ritz. The room was small and basic but was clean and comfortable and overall is value for money, there was nothing to complain about. It is well situated, only a 5min walk to Earls Court underground station.

When we arrived we thought from the outside it was going to be nice! How wrong could we be! We were given our double room which was tiny! No room for both of us to be stood up at the same time. The walls were paper thin on all sides and full of marks ans scratches, and the breakfast room... More

We recently stayed at the Lord Jim Hotel in the family room, 3 adults, 2 children. No bedding or base for the cot, room small with damp patches, very very hot, no hair dryer as advertised. Breakfast was appalling and staff most unhelpful, no high chairs. Reception staff good but "family friendly" I think not!!! Will not be going back.... More

I stayed at the Lord Jim Hotel for three nights. Everything I read on trip advisor was correct. I was fortunate enough to have a large room. Very comfortable but what most impressed me. Was the kindness and attention to detail by the staff. The manager of the Hotel to me was the best of the best of all Hotels... More

Although the room in general was a little small everything else was perfect! Really comfy double bed, nice sized bathroom and the perfect location! Pubs and shops are just around the corner and the underground isn't much further! With 24 hour reception you can come and go when you please and the staff are really friendly and helpful! Would definitely... More

They say "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." Unfortunately, I have to write 200 characters... When we opened the bedroom door it hit the bed. The stench from the bathroom was horrid but was coming from the pipes so my husband covered the openings and it dulled it a bit. The room was... More

The advertising for this hotel is completely deceptive! Any of the positive reviews that are here have GOT to be via friends and relatives and not actual people who've stayed here. I was absolutely shocked when showed up for my vacation and I saw the room I'd booked thru Hotels.com. The room was so small there was not even room... More
