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

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

I booked this hotel based largely on its proximity to Earl's Court tube station (less than five mins walk) and was not disappointed. We were in London to go to wimbledon and found it a very easy journey from this hotel. Earls Court is also on the Picadilly line so it is very convenient for the centre of the city.... More

Staff were very friendly and efficient, lovely room and great location. Nice restaurants nearby. Although I was a lone female, I did not feel worried about going out by myself. Would highly recommend this.

I mean there is nothing wrong with The Rockwell but there is absolutely nothing special about the hotel either. GBP 245 a night I guess you would expect a room where the furniture was not stained? The room was actually pretty good size but bathroom was tiny ( tiny tiny shower ). Am not crazy about the location, Cromwell Road... More

Our reservation/s were complex as one of us was in London for surgery for part of the time. The reception staff couldn't have been more helpful, co-ordinating our reservations to enable me to check into the room my daughter was checking out of, so she could stay in her single room all day and leave her luggage there into the...

Fabulous service, from the reception to the porters , everyone was exceptionally helpful. The rooms are clean and although on the small side (superior single) I had the skylight windows to give a sense of space. The location is central and in walking distance from restaurants and Sainsburys supermarket. (good Lebanese restuarant around the corner, Orjowan.) Breakfast is basic and... More
