It was my first travel and I was very worried. But everything was just perfect! :-) And no small role in this was played by the hotel staff and the atmosphere of care I felt when returning to the hotel after a long day in the city. Perfect cleanliness, excellent service, cozy style. I was sorry that I came only... More

We stayed last week at the Rockwell Hotel. Rooms were comfortable and quiet, perfect for a good rest. Mine in particular was overlooking the very nice inner garden. We had a delicious afternoon tea with my colleague in a very relaxed atmosphere. Rates for room and breakfast very reasonable taking into account the location and time of the year. Wonderful... More

My husband and I were very happy with our stay at The Rockwell. It's only 5 minutes walk from the Earl's Court tube station, and a brief stroll away from a variety of shops and restaurants. Though located on a busy road, our room was on the third floor and we heard no noise from the street below. Our room... More

My friend and I just spent a lovely 10 days in London, and staying at The Rockwell helped make our trip fantastic! From the moment you walk in the door, you get a warm cozy feeling.

This was a beautiful hotel, centrally located in Trafalgar Square and within walking distance to all major attractions. Great restaurants around the corner and very close to Buckingham Palace. Rooms were great and service terrific.

This is a smart, comfortable hotel, with very friendly and helpful staff (I forgot to give back the plug adapter you gave me - sorry). It's very close to Earl's Court Underground station which gives easy access to shopping and museums and there are also some excellent, good value restaurants in the area.

The reception and Lobby area was nice. My room was too small. I asked for a single room. The breakfast was very good. Many choices and good quality. The hotel is far from the center but close to the metro station.

It's bizarre that London, one of the world's great cities, has so many awful, overpriced hotels. I visit London regularly, and have grown sick of staying in dingy, tiny rooms that cost more per night than two or three nights in a good hotel outside the capital. Thankfully, the Rockwell bucks this trend of expensive mediocrity. It ain't cheap, but... More

Thank you for this lovely review of The Rockwell. I am so glad to read that we are becoming your London hotel choice. Whilst I can understand not being the cheapest hotel in town, providing an experience that our guests consider as good value for money is important to us, so thank you for recognising this. It is wonderful to... More

Arrived after tiring 30 hours travel from Australia, and was given a most welcome pot of camomile tea as I checked in. Great location as you cut through Kenway Lane to Earls Court Station, 5 mins walk away. Plenty of small restaurants, pubs and an internet cafe (50p for 1/2 hour) within the area. I had a room facing the... More

This is the second time I have stayed at the Rockwell on business and I will certainly visit again. The hotel has a very welcoming feel to it thanks to the cosy modern decor and the very friendly and approachable staff. I stayed in room 202 at the back of the hotel which was quiet, well appointed and spotlessly clean.... More
