Honestly, I read the reviews on Tripadvisor just after booking a stay at Knaresborough and I was terrified. But getting there I had the chance to see that it was not that bad, really! Our room, albeit small, was clean and cozy, the building was quiet, the hosts were polite. The bathroom was rather big, compared to the 'shoebox' I... More

Firstly, I will tell you about the only good things about this hotel - the location was convenient and the ground floor lobby was nice. Now, prepare yourself for the bad. Firstly, the room (meant to be an apartment but I would say that "shoeboax" was a better description) was not big enough to swing a cat. Tiny! You could... More

Don't waste your money, how this hotel is still in business is beyond me. At best a 2star rating. The rooms are so dirty and certainly nothing like the photos on different websites. The rooms are tiny and with no air conditioning incredibly uncomfortable, the road noise is unbearable. As for customer service you get given a phone number upon... More

We just stayed a couple nights in Apartment 13 (the same one as was reviewed by someone else 4 weeks ago...). We found the accommodation VERY convenient--so close to Earl's Court and Gloucester Road tube stops, even closer to a large Sainsbury's and several restaurants, and a short jog from Hyde Park. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and... More

A word is enough for the wise... avoid! For such a prime location i'm shocked that this place is operating at such a poor standard. EVERYTHING is dirty! Plates, pans, the linen.. I was horrified to see blood on the sheets, I decided not to sleep. It's so unfortunate because this place has the potential to be a really good... More

I reserved a one-bedroom apartment in this so called 'Luxury' Serviced Apartment (but here it is labeled as only SHORT STAY apartments) in the Kensington and Chelsea area, London through one of the hotel website with the 'free cancellation option' by x time and x date. I wrote a couple of emails to inquire about the apartment conditions and whether... More

Do not deal with this hotel! I made a booking on booking.com (who I will never use again either). There seemed to be a problem with my booking as when I checked the evening I was meant to be staying it said 0 bookings! Then I realised I had no confirmation email. I just thought there must have been a... More

I got to this apartments just by chance while redirected from another accomodation (is it a case that another traveller has said the same thing?!??). The location of the apartments is quite comfortable because is very close to the Earl's Court Metro station (not more than 300 m). The reception is located at the ground floor, but it was not...

I stayed here last week as a last resort during the tube strikes as nothing else was available. I was in a basement room which only has single glazed windows so I was woken up several times in the night by people talking/singing/shouting on the pavement above. The curtain wasn't wide enough to cover all of the window, you could... More
