I was travelling with my friend and we stayed 4nights on this hotel. Room was bigger than we expect. Breakfast is average british style. Location is great and staff very helpful and nice. Only keycard is littlebit oldstyle, but still working. Our room was -1 level, but it's pretty good.

My sister and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights during our trip to London. I'll start with the positives. 1. Very close to Earl Court Tube station. It was less than a 5 minute walk which is exactly what we needed for exploring the city. 2. Close to small restaurants, grocery store and pubs. 3. Room was clean,... More

I stayed in room 2. Very hot room in this weather. Window did open but was very overlooked and there was no blind/net so couldn't keep curtains open to allow air in. Only one plug socket in the room. Room was clean. Breakfast was very poor. Only option was cereal or toast. No really a hotel more of a large... More

Good, value for money hotel just minutes to the tube. Clean room, comfortable beds and everything worked. Basic breakfast but considering price included this and wifi in bedrooms, nothing to complain about!

Reading the other reviews...our family of three - loved it here. We had a room on the front of the hotel facing the park. We were here when England had its recent heat wave - even without air conditioning or a fan - we stayed cool. The staff here was excellent. Our room was clean and our beds comfortable. Even... More

We were very positive at first, the location was great....but not worth it! The worst thing was the bed, the mattress was basically a sponge, so soft that we fell inside, when we complained they simply flipped it- obviously not a solution. The shower was insanely small, and it was hard stepping inside. The breakfast was just toast and coffee.... More

I was traveling alone so my room was TINY...I could hardly turn around in it, however most rooms in Europe are small unless you are paying very high rates for them. There was no air conditioning and it did get very warm sometimes. The window could be opened and they did lend me a fan. There is a safe in... More

Or in this case to make you give a hotel a really bad review. Luckily this staff member was only a problem right at the end of our holiday. But for her rude and arrogant attitude I would have given this hotel a 3 out of 5. Let me start with, this is not the easiest Hotel in the world... More

Plus side - Easy access to a Earls Court Station, clean & tidy room, continental breakfast sufficient, staff friendly, nice view from third floor. Down side - No air con, mattress EXTREMELY soft, felt like a water bed, bathroom/shower VERY small, hairdryer supplied was pants - take your own.

Small, no frills place. WiFi sucked. Breakfast: toast, 2 kids of juice, coffee/tea, 3 kinds of cereal. Nothing special. For the price I will pick a different place for sure! Rooms dark and depressing, also very hot no AC. Window did not help as it was facing a wall so not much air circulation.
