Best advice: prioritize what's important to you because in reading all of these reviews, everything is true. You must decide what you can live with. For us three things made this a good choice: very clean room, conveniently located near tube station & good price for London. What's not so good: noise of tube station. We were on the 3rd... More

Picked this hotel looking for somewhere with easy access to tube and at a low price. Anywhere else the Lord Kensington would be well overpriced but it's as good as you can get for under £100 a night in London. Our room was as expected small but everything was nice and clean. Comfortable bed and we enjoyed a good nights... More

Stayed for two nights in march 2014 very close to tube station, shops,pubs and restaurants.we used it for a base when at an event at Olympia. Rooms large and nicely decorated. The only downside was the size of the breakfast room its tiny. We would certainly use this hotel again.

My husband and I stayed for four nights and found this hotel to be extremely convenient to the Earls Court Tube Stop. The hotel personnel were very friendly. The breakfast room was nice, and provided some protein, i.e., ham, cheese, eggs, and yogurt. The only issue was that our toilet was in the hallway through two fire doors. I thought... More

If you want to enjoy your once-in-a-lifetime trip DO NOT book this hotel. You will regret it. Yes it is near the tube, just over the back wall. The photo posted by a guest was exactly what we saw. You hear the trains in the station all night long well past midnight, then the maintenance crew comes on until 4:30am.... More

We booked this hotel at the last minute and thought the price was reasonable. The beds were very comfortable and the breakfast was cheery, but being a vegan I didn't expect much choice. But there was fresh fruit.

Stayed here for 1 night for a show at the Royal Albert Hall - this was roughly a 25/30 minute walk through a lovely part of London. It is in a good location - near bars and restaurants, & a short walk from the museums. The room itself was a small basic double with a shower, the toilet was located... More

Good location. Proximity to bars, restaurants, and train station excellent. However, the room was small even for European standards. The beds were soft and excellent linen. The bathroom was the best feature of the room. The breakfast was mediocre. Overpriced for the accommodations.

Understaffed. No breakfast until 7.30am. Reception often unmanned and door locked. Difficult to get in after 10pm! Rooms clean, good bed-linen but otherwise cheaply furnished. 'Russian' lightshades. Breakfast mediocre. Worth £65 per night but I paid £150 - really irritated that I was duped. Should have paid the cancellation fee and gone elsewhere.
