Stayed here with 3 of my friends, we were in Kensington for a competition. This hotel should be closed down; I mean to say it is disgusting. I cannot understand how my extensive research on the property was so deceiving. The place should be condemned, everything falling apart. No local staff or hospitality, no wireless available, all the requests for... More

Really close to Earls Court underground station. We took a room with private bathroom for 6 days ad it was clean everyday. The staff is very kind and helpful. There was a wi-fi even if it wasn't so performant.

It's a fair hotel by the price. It's close to the Earl Court Underground station which has lines to Heathrow and downtown London. The wifi is free but is quite weak on the top floors. Unfortunately there is no lift and no air conditioning on the room.

I wasn't planning on writing about this Hotel, but having had a look at the majority of the reviews that are on here already, I thought I should. The other reviews here mention small rooms, a run down decor, noise, claustrophobia, and all manner of other things. My response to this is, WHAT ON EARTH DO YOU EXPECT? I stayed... More

Hotel is located within a walking (if you like to walk a bit) distance to most attractions in London and is reasonably priced. However the rooms are tiny and bed takes pretty much all of the space. On top of everything the bed is not so big to allow two people to comfortably sleep on it. And if you have... More

We stayed here for the beer festival at Olympia. We were dreading the hotel hoping we would be too drunk to care. We were surprised.. The bedding was clean. The bathroom was clean and tidy. Brown but no accounting for taste! Lol the TV we had to sort out and it worked.! Just put the scart lead in and searched... More

We chose this as a really close option for Earls Court. It's within 100 yards to the gates and same to the tube - perfect !! That's the best I can say about it. We were on the top floor for 1 night stay. The whole place is extremely run down, ripped stair carpets was the start of the fun.... More

We expected a bit of luxury in this hotel as it is part of the Hilton group, but our room was tiny and very odd triangle shaped, with a brick wall facing onto the window, we had to ask to be moved as we felt too claustrophobic. The 2nd room was someone with disabilites and by the 3rd attempt we... More
