Really bad hotel. The room smelled and the bed was tiny and really uncomfortable. They only give you one pillow which is flat and a bit pointless. The staff at reception were really rude. I couldn't wait to leave!

On our arrival our room wasn't quite ready, the staff were really helpful though and upgraded us to a larger family room. The room was clean and tidy, just what we needed after a long day at the show. Breakfast was basic European style, just right for our needs. We would stay again.

Overall, it's a small but comfortable hotel. Rooms are kinda small, cannot fit 2 large luggages while opened. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast was a huge let down. Breakfast was bread, butter, jam and juice.

I wasn't expectibg a great deal, and quite frankly the room was fine (albeit small, but I didn't care). But I booked this hotel for one reason; knowing it had a laundry service I could utilise before I went on a tour. There were plenty of cheaper accommodations I could have taken, but I needed laundry so I booked this.... More

Stayed at the hotel. Was visiting Earls Court expo centre which is nearby. Hotel room whilst clean, was very hot. the small fan provided in the room didn't really make a difference. Breakfast was not really worth bothering about. Tea/Coffee in room but don't expect Tetley tea. think more fruit infused tea bags. My husband was accosted in the street... More

Stayed with my daughter for 4 nights. We booked a twin room and were upgraded to a triple room - this was nice, because the room was very small. There is not enough space for big luggage pieces - we had to put them on the bed. The bathroom is also small, but served its purpose. Continental breakfast - very... More

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.
