I slept here for 4 nights, and I had no problem. The room was little but comfortable and always clean and with new towel. The first morning we were shocked because the breakfast room was full, but after a little we could sit. Breakfast was simple and continental, but everything was fresh. People were really helpful and talked to us... More

Just got back from a 3 night stay here and if I'm honest I probably wouldn't go back. I went for the weekend with my mum and to be honest it was more like a hostel than a hotel BUT you get what you pay for and in fairness the room was clean and bed comfortable, however we were in... More

was in London for 9 days, arrived with no specific destination in London. On the metro, talked with people, and someone mentioned this hotel. Nice location, 2 min walk to the underground, lots of good pubs and restaurant close by. Although the rooms are small, they are clean. The front desk people are always nice and smiling, and ready to... More

Stayed here in January for two nights, before and after a Chelsea game. The hotel is ideally located, less than 2 minutes walk from Earl's Court station and loads of pubs and restaurants. If you're an away fan going to Stamford Bridge, the place is close enough to walk to the ground (via a number of pubs...). We had a... More

I spent five nights here around Christmas. The location was okay. It was quit and close (three blocks) from Earl's Court Station (Underground). The condition of the hotel was not bad for an older hotel. The rooms are very, very small. There was not even enough space to put suit case, etc. The breakfast, though sparse, was okay. The sink...

It suited us for easy access to Heathrow. It was clean and bed comfortable. The room itself was the size of a broom closet and the bathroom so small from the toilet my feet would be in the shower. But it was only one night and so the size didn't bother us. Also it was clean and didn't smell.

Double bed room was small, no space to fit an open luggage. One first bedroom had a bed that turned out to have undesirable guests. Our second bedroom was so tiny... we were finally 'offered' a larger bedroom (this one had enough space for one opened suitcase). You get toasts, jam, butter for breakfast and get to make your own...

We stayed in the 4 person family room which was conveniently located on the first floor literally 5 metres from the reception. The hotel was very easy to find coming from Earl's court station and the staff at the reception were very nice. The room itself was small but it was enough for a family of 4 adults. The only...

I've stayed at this hotel a number of times due to how close it is to Earl's Court station and I've enjoyed each stay. The beds are comfortable and the rooms nice if small but the hotel is inexpensive so it's to be expected. Breakfast is good, staff are friendly. I'd certainly stay here again.

Quite a good surprise to find a cheap hotel with all what's needed to have a correct stay. No luxurious rooms but that's clean and located close to Earl's Court. Personnel is very friendly. That's London so don't have too much expectations for that price, but I've had much less pleasant stays that cost far more...
