My family of 4 stayed in Lord Jim hotel as we found the most convenient location for our flight to Rome from Gatwick Airport (accessible by train from Victoria Station}. Before arrival, I was expecting our bedroom (for 4 adults) to be tight on space, similar to our previous B&B stays in London. However, to my surprise it was more... More

On the plus side, the staff were extremely helpful, the hotel was clean and located a short walk from Earls Court underground station. The Wi-Fi worked well in the room. However, the double room we were given was so small that there were walls on three sides of the double bed, and in the bathroom you could brush your teeth... More

I have several times over the years stayed at the hotel. The staff are very polite, helpful and they will do everything they can to help you. Most of the rooms are tiny; this is also the case with the breakfast room. Many of the budget hotels you find in central London like Lord Jim is former residential houses converted... More

I was upgraded, for free, to a double which was a very kind gesture and the room and en suite were clean and tidy. The room was very small for a double but as it was only me it was a... More

We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights in March 2013. The first room we got was more like a closet - you can't imagine how small it was. It was old, ugly, cold and dark. I immediately went to the reception and demanded another room. The clerk gave me a card to another room on 3rd floor and told... More

I was booked into this hotel via our client and was shockingly surprised. The staff were attenive and all my needs were met perfectly. Friendly staff, great breakfast and a perfect room AND stable internet. Very welcoming. The location is perfect for Earls Court, Kensington and Knightsbridge. 10/10.
