My husband and I stayed here 3 nights. The room was very small but we were prepared for this, told that coming to a city as populated and old as London that unless you are willing to fork out the extra dollars this is to be expected. A heads up so you don't get a shock is that the bathrooms... More

I took my son to London for the first time and ended up choosing the Garden View because of the location and price. The price clearly can't be beat (especially in London!), and the location is even better. It's a five minute walk from the Earl's Court tube station, even with a 2 year old in tow. The staff were...

I picked the Garden View because a friend and I needed an affordable place to stay in London for a few days. I couldn't have been more pleased. The hotel is in a lovely quiet location in Kensington, something you really appreciate when you're exploring London and spotting so many other hotels situated in louder streets. It's a 2 minute...

Would only add that I'm a heavy sleeper so the noise did not bother me and that the woman on the desk was pleasant and helpful. 50 pounds for one double room for the night and I would definitely use this hotel again.

If you're looking for something basic and budget for a couple of nights, this hotel is probably for you. The price is extremely reasonable; the room was clean and comfortably equipped with nice decor. It was in a good location with a room overlooking a little park, in close enough proximity to the museums of Kensington and with several great... More

If you suffer from Claustraphobia please do not stay in this hotel. There wasnt even a metre around the bottom and side of the bed for walking, You could sit on the toilet, wash you hands in the sink and your feet in the shower. It really is tiny! The decor was clean and modern. As someone else had written... More

We stayed here on 10th February. We booked a triple room but were given a room with a double and 2 singles. The room was a good size and was equipped with hairdryer and tea/coffee facilities. The room was lovely and warm , maybe too warm so we opened the window. Good size bathroom with a decent shower and plenty... More

I really recommand this hotel. It is well situated, not far from downtown and close to the subway. The rooms are clean and large enough for the number of persons authorized. The breakfast is good and generous. We are allowed to let the luggage before having the room for free. If I go back to London, I will go to... More

This hotel is in a quite neighbourhood, very close to an Underground station which provides access to three underground lines, the District line, Circle line, and Piccadilly line, excellent to access all area of London, including Heathrow (so if you do not mind carrying your luggage it saves a fortune over hiring a taxi). Rooms are on the smaller side,... More

Spent three nights with my boyfriend in January 2015. The rooms are very small, but very comfy. The shower is hot and relaxing with a great waterflow. It was a strange pipe smell in the bathroom when we checked-in, but it disappear on the first night. The location is excellent: 2 blocks away from a busy street, with restaurants, coffe... More
