I stayed here for one night after before catching a flight out of London and paid very little compared to similar accommodations. Tiny room with a very clean and recently remodeled shower and bathroom (which was shared). Room was nothing special but reasonable for the price I paid, definitely could use a refresher but the price would then surely be... More

Small rooms but enough for sleeping necesities. Breakfast was good not a big selection but the price was right. wIFI was spotty at best. Rooms were clean, building was cleaning and street was quiet. Very close to the metro.

It's definitely not a 5 star hotel, but the staff is quite nice, and it feels safe. I actually liked the breakfast even though it's serve yourself. Made good sandwiches hhahaha. The beds are ok. But, shared toilet and showers are a no for me. It is quite close to certain pubs and it's a walking distance from Kensington which... More

What I love about this hotel is that it's so close to Earl's Court Station which made taking the tube to visit the sights in London extremely easy. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are small though (well, I heard most accommodations in London are small because it's really expensive), good thing the room and bathroom are ok.... More

As far as I'm concerned the treatment of the personal was not good because they spoke to us in a bad way or sometimes they didn't care if we were comfortable or not. On the one hand, the wifi doesn't work well and one day we hadn't got wifi at our room and we have to go outside to surf... More

A group of friends stayed here the week before Christmas. Oh my days, the pictures the hotel suggest represents the hotel were either taken a very very long time ago or are not this hotel. In fact, this place is not a hotel, it's barely a hostel. The room had literally hundreds of filler repairs to the walls that hadn't... More

We stayed two nights at this hotel it was very pleasant and very clean. A large choice for breakfast to suit all nationalities. No cooked breakfast but you could get that around the corner if needed. Rooms were small but this is prime space in London. Very good value for money.

Small Room but perfect for Central London for the price paid. Clean and a decent bathroom. Comfy bed. Wifi was good quality. I didn't take breakfast. Initially worried about noise being on the ground floor next to reception but all was very quiet during my mid-week stay. Maid service was good. Recommended due to proximity to tube and amenities
