Hotel Lily has two massive advantages; 1. affordability and 2. location. It is a budget hotel and for a budget hotel the facilities were adequate. Do not book this hotel if you are looking for luxury, somewhere to chill and unwind or any kind of 'service'. However, if you need affordable, basic accommodation in an excellent location this hotel offers... More

Booked this hotel as it was close to the hammersmith Apollo where we were seeing kate bush. It's a very basic budget B&B style hotel. Rooms are small but clean. Breakfast was adequate (avoid the beans) staff friendly. Plus it's 250m from a district line tube station, and it was £35 a night for a room plus breakfast. Your in... More

I stayed here just because it was over the road from Earls Court, perfect for convention goers like myself. The staff were the main thing that let this place down. I never saw any of them smile once! Not welcoming at all, didn't have high hopes after checking in! The lifts in the reception are just big enough for 1... More

Don't stay here, it was awful!. The rooms are tiny, dirty, noisy. The staff don't care and there is no service. The breakfast was the cheapest possible, the restaurant was dirty. The lifts didn't work all week and probably still don't. The dirty laundry was piled in bags on the stairs leading down to the restaurant. The bathroom wasn't cleaned... More

This has to have been the worst experience of our lives even worse than the hotels we had unfortunately stayed at in Italy a few years ago. When I booked this hotel for us and our friends, I asked if there were rooms for disabled. I was told there was not but there was a lift and the manager did... More

I have stayed there on a business trip; I know very well that the standard for hotels in London if you want to spend less than £ 100 a night is awful, but a minimum level of decency should be upheld. I can live with the very tiny room (you could hardly walk around the bed) and I can even... More

we booked this hotel hopping for easy access to Natural History Museum, to our disappointment it was far and away not only from museum but everything and anything, overpriced, squeezed in third bed, so in order to get to bed we would have to climb it like in kindergarten, beds are old not very comfortable, not very clean, no air-conditioning...

A group of us stayed here for a last minute theatre break as most hotels fully booked. The photos on its own website are very different to the actual reality of the hotel. We booked a room with 4 single beds and this looks quite spacious on the website. 3 single beds were pushed together with no gap inbetween them.... More

Building was ideally located to local transport and was convenient for our trip. However on arrival to leave our bags until check in a few hours later, the service received was disgusting, the lady who served us was rude and unwelcoming. On return to check in we went to our room which was nothing like was shown in the pictures... More

Three of us had rooms here for a business trip - all were just as bad - hotel was tatty and in desperate need of refurbishment, bathroom doors didn't close - bedrooms very noisy (no double glazing); also really hot and stuffy (no air-con.). One morning they forget to leave any fresh towels in my colleagues bathroom - but had... More
