I took this hotel mainly because i am tied with a vacation club back in Malaysia and only need to pay RM140 per room ie GBP28 on top of the deduction of my club entitlements. We were quite worried initially after reading all the negative reviews here.
Travelling in a family of 2 adults and 2 children, we took 2 rooms - we had asked for a connecting room but none was available at that point in time. Instead, they offered us a family room on the 5th floor which we were happy to take. We had taken the tube from Heathrow Terminal 4, and was mighty happy that the hotel is just around the bend upon exit from the underground station. The staff were friendly and most helpful with our luggage. The exterior and the lobby looks very nice.
We were bundled into the lift - which is indeed the smallest that we have ever seen - just nice for 2 adults and 2 children.
The room is old but very clean - a queen bed at one corner and twin at another corner. Mattress on the queen bed sort of sink in, but not too much of a problem. The space is limited so we really need to organise our luggage well for a 8 night stay.
The bathroom in the family room is fairly big and the shower is refreshing with constant hot water.
On one occasion i used the staircase instead of the lift , it is indeed quite narrow and those with luggage might find it difficult to navigate. However, i have stayed in Earl's Court and it is the same, so i presume these old buildings come with narrow stair case.
Our stay do not include breakfast but that is not an issue - plenty of eateries, and fast food places (McD and Burger King being the nearest) around. There is even a TESCO and Sainsbury nearby. Royal China (famous for dim sum) is within walking distance. And so are tourist destinations such as Kensington Gardens and Kensington Palace, Hyde Park, etc. In short, i will give it a 5 star location wise.
Should i visit London again, i will definitely return to stay - acceptable room, within budget and fantasic location.
