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

Nice place to stay at 60 to 70£ in London's Central district of Earls Court. Overlooking a garden, this property is typical London type of small rooms with attached washroom. English Breakfast is complimentary and is enough for a person (corn flakes, bread, butter, jam with coffee/tea). Very near to (2 min walk) to Earls court tube that is very... More

Room was spacious and had a large comfy bed, with a lovely view of the gardens opposite the hotel. Bathroom was small but practical, and room smelled nice and was spotlessly clean. My only faults were that the cleaners started in other rooms early in the morning, causing a bit of noise, but not too bad, and that the breakfast... More

Stayed in a single room facing the park for three nights and found it very comfortable. I was surprised by the standard considering the price paid. The area is nice and its very close to the tube stop. The breakfast however is not very impressing, only toast and cereal. As it is very conveniently located on the Picadilly line to/from... More

We booked a single night in this hotel as the price was quite decent. Our room was in the basement, which wasn't a problem. The beds themselves were quite comfortable, although a little too soft. The bathroom in the room we stayed in had an unpleasant odour, almost like sewage, which was disturbing to say the least. Breakfast was decent... More

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...
