Well to start off on a positive note the location of this hotel is excellent; just a couple of minutes walk from Earl's Court tube station with easy access to central London. My stay at this hotel was only a very short one (one night) and I really don't think I could have stayed any longer.
On arrival to the hotel we had a lengthy check in whilst they tried to charge us for the rooms again, even though we had already paid in full online. We were eventually given the keys to our rooms (without extra charge) and made our way to the very top floor. We were slightly amused to see that the door leading to the top corridor was being held open with a pair of knickers! The room itself was very small; you could only walk from the door to the window if everyone else was sitting on the beds to make room. The cleanliness of the room wasn't horrendous, although the carpets were grubby looking.
The bathroom was nice and clean, although lots of the fittings (towel rails etc.) were barely hanging on to the wall. The one major complaint that I had was the shower. Within seconds of turning it on the water was scalding and just kept getting hotter no matter which way you turned the temperature gauge. This made it near on impossible to shower without suffering serious burns.
Whilst we had a fantastic time in London I would not stay at this hotel again; there was a Holiday Inn just around the corner and I really wish I had stayed there.
