Miserable reception staff were there at all times lacking comunication skills. The room was definately not in the same league as the photos posted on their web site !!!. Mattress was well past it's sell by date. On-going building work greeted us with NO apology verbally or written about noise or mess. Staff had been in our room daily to... More

Spent one night here over the weekend, booked as it was close to Chelsea football club (a quick walk through Brompton cemetery) in a good location (Earls Court) & cheap. For the price, wasn't expecting much, staff were really friendly, arrived in advance of checking in, as the rooms were ready, gave us the keys early. Rooms were not the... More

This was not the worse Hotel that I have stayed in but really left a lot to be desired. The Desk folks were absolutely wonderful, helpful and even suggested things to do. The rooms were ok although not cleaned daily. A lot of dust bunnies in the corners. they are in the process of renovation and I would imagine that... More

Booked a double room for a night, at £70. No email confirmation but was assured it had gone through. Checked in, room functional etc. Checked out, amount owed was now £85!!? I complained, asked to see manager. He was 'not around'. So, 85 pounds paid. I will never return.

I am sorry you feel that way, the prices you have quoted both point to online reservations via a Travel Agent and as we give all agents the same price we cannot know via the review which one you booked with . The price of a Double or Twin Room for 2 persons is £85.00 for Single Occupancy is £... More

Our room didn't have a great view but it was fine, the hotel is undergoing renovation . Good service and good breakfast. Special thank you to Gonna at the reception! Very helpful and understanding. I hope to come back to UK and London, if so I'll stay again at the Boka. Cheers Bianca

The tribute to Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is not misplaced. The Boka is definitely one of a kind and somewhat eccentric in terms of facilities. We had a small double with kitchenette and separate bathroom, on the top floor, easily accessible by lift. The staff could not be nicer and more helpful - and they make the place what it... More

When we arrived at the hotel the receptionist was very helpfull. The rooms however where limited to two choices. Our room had a split level for the double bed. The ceiling was probably around 1 meter from the ceiling which is not a good thing when your boyfriend is over 190cm long. The bed was less than we hoped for,... More

I needed somewhere to stay at short notice with a friend and we were on a tight budget for this trip. This was one of the cheapest hotels available in the area, so we weren't expecting it to be amazing. However, even for the low price paid, it still felt like we got bad value. This seems to be more... More

The hotel is very cheaply fitted out and it is old. There was a small set of drawers and a wardrobe in our room with missing and broken drawers. The door to our room was glass panelled which allowed the hallway lights to flood our room all night making it difficult to sleep. I mean, who even installs glass panelled... More

Dear Reviewer I am sorry you feel this way about the hotel but would like to make some observations. The door with the glass above is the main door to the room into the kitchenette there is then another door between that and the bedroom. Water pressure , if the stay was when I think it was you would have... More
