“Nice location for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

After reading some of the not-so-positive reviews about long waits at check-in and musty rooms, I must have been very fortunate to get the room which I stayed for 4 days. At the top floor, it is small (as usual) but is very clean and looks new. As someone has mentioned earlier, the multiple sockets at the dressing table are very useful for charging gadgets. Down to the reception, the check-in is swift and the porters were ever ready to assist with my baggage without being asked. Location wise....there's nothing to complain about with its proximity to Earl's Court station and a 10 mins walk to a Sainsbury.

Room Tip: Although it's only 5 storeys high, try to get a room at the higher floors for a better view.

We booked into this hotel because our daughter lives across the road. As it turns it I think that it is a great value for money hotel. Our room happens to be quite big ... room 416 ... the others are smaller ... I guess we got lucky.

It is very clean and the staff are pleasant. We haven't eaten here but we have used the gym which is basic but adequate.

Another bonus is that it is a three minute walk to the Earls Court Tube.

Room Tip: Ask for a high level room at the end of the corridor.

This hotel is a very nice hotel in a very good location close lo the Earl Court underground station.
The staff are very friendly and helpful.
Very good breakfast with a variety of food to choose from.
The only reservation is the rooms under the firs floor. They are difficult to reach so ask for an upper floor.
Free wifi is a big bonus.

Room Tip: As I mentioned only upper floor rooms. Room 100 and above.

We stayed from my partners 50th birthday in early November and overall were very impressed by the hotel. Rooms were really contemporary and nicely furnished. Cleanliness was spot on - absolutely nothing to complain about in this respect!

We did book one of the larger rooms though and it was worth it as I suspect that the smaller rooms would have felt too small. This is London though!

Staff were very courteous, helpful and obliging. Again, no complaints in that department.

Location maybe ain't the greatest, but you are just a couple of minutes walk away from Earls Court tube station.

The only gripe was about breakfast. No problems with the food - far from it - but it did get very busy at times, perhaps not helped by the fact that we head that they serve guests from adjoining hotels.

But that is being somewhat picky about what was an enjoyable and extremely pleasant stay

Room Tip: If you can afford it, choose one of the bigger rooms.

Overall I was very disappointed with the hotel. I have stayed in lots of hotels and this appealed to me for our 1 night stay in London due to location and price.
To start with there was one receptionist and a queue of 6 people checking in, and 4 porters just stood there surely one of these should be trained to do check in ?
After 15-20 minutes we finally checked in we were told we had a upgrade and were on lower ground floor. We were shown to our room the whole floor smelt musty then the upgrade room ! I would be interesting to see what the other room would be like!
The room in general was fairly tidy but certain things not exactly how it should be, the armchair was frayed on all edges, hairdryer end melted, bathroom door would not shut and the shower would not drain !
Then the one tiny window to daylight on the street was obviously by the skip because all we could see was rubbish.
The area in general was ok but Not walking distance from museums, we did but took a good half hour of quick walking.

I could go on and on about this but this hotel is probably one I had best expectations of but was extremely disappointed so would not stay there again or recommend it

Room Tip: Don't book at this hotel

Although the (top floor) room is relatively small, it is clean and pretty well equipped. There're mutliple sockets on the dressing table (usb, HDMI, etc) which proved to be very useful when charging few gadgets at a go. The check-in is pretty swift and the reception/ doormen were ready to help when needed. Yes the street outside the hotel may be kinda dirty with some garbage lying around as someone has mentioned, but it's not strewn all over as they are in bags at certain sections. To be honest there's nothing much the hotel can do about this and so it's unfair to fault them for it. In all, it's good value for money and nothing beats its location.

Room Tip: Get rooms on the higher floors.

Me and my girlfriend stayed for 2 nights mid week and could not fault our stay in anyway, staff warm, friendly and always ready to help. The location was ideal for our needs only a 2 minute walk from Earls Court tube station, Room and facilities were first class for the price we payed. Will defiantly use again.
