Pros good location, friendly staff, wifi, comfortable beds, clean towels every day, Ideal place to use as a base close to tube and local shops and facilities. Cons hotel needs updating and a bit worn out. Breakfast is not so good. The only thing to say in truth is I would use it again its value for money.

This is a clean basic hotel, well located within 5min walk of Earl's Court metro station. It is good value for money, taking into consideration that you are in London. The continental breakfast is very basic and the room is tony but once again this is London. I would stay there again for the same price I paid.

The hotel location was great. Rooms were clean and reasonable size, however the beds seemed to be just foam, not proper mattresses, consequently, not good to sleep on. The breakfast was dreadful, free wifi worked only occasionally. The complimentary tea and coffee only two small milks were provided, not good if both of you like milk in your tea!

Lot of noise. Horrible night and the worst breakfast ever. We are from Holland. Never go here. Only the woman with the short dark hair from the recepcion was great. Really bad. Breakfast without cheese. Only jam and honey. Also no coffeemachine !!!!!!!

Stayed here for 1 night and found the Hotel to be very convenient for both Earls Court and Olympia Exhibition Centres. The basement room was smallish but well decorated and clean. The bathroom was very small but adequate. Breakfast was very limited but for the price ok. I would stay there again

I have booked hotels like this before through last minute.com. I use them for a reason, they are cheap for central London. This means you do not get a lot, little space, small bathroom. However they are always clean and the bed was comfortable. In terms of the hotel itself it's in a quiet area not far from Earl's Court... More

Even smaller bathroom that makes having a shower an adventure 3. Even smaller elevator (there is almost room for you and your suitcase) 4. The continental breakfast is pretty... More

The bad....Bathrooms were not much larger than those on an airplane...I measured it. 5 feet by 2 feet. As Americans, instant coffee at breakfast is not coffee...it is disgusting. The good....Beautiful setting in a great location. Friendly staff. Beds were comfortable.

Pros - the hotel was clean; tube station nearby; reasonable price for London. Sounds good - please read on: Cons - absolutely no water pressure and the toilet would not flush. Three service calls and 2 visits from maintenance and still no fix. Maintenance guy told us it worked and left. After he left, we discovered that he also couldn't... More

I needed to find somewhere clean and safe for myself and my 9 year old for a visit to London having not been there for quite a few years! The Garden View was a good price and as I found out when I got there it seems like a nice part of Earls Court. Our twin room was small but... More
