Where to begin... Requested an early check-in-nope. (I get it sometimes not possible) At 2 pm we were shown our "better room" as we were staying several nights-nope, not better (we waited until 3 when another larger room was available) Brought our luggage into the larger room (2 rolling duffels, 2 small rolling overnight bags and 2 carry on backpacks)...

Starting with the positives - the hotel is in a good location, only about 3 minutes walk to Earls Court underground station. All staff that we came into contact with (front desk and breakfast room staff) were friendly too and couldn't be faulted. The continental breakfast also offered a nice selection of food. Unfortunately the negatives outweighed the positives though....

The location of this hotel is good and the reception check in was good. After that, the room is very poor. There is no heating so this is a nightmare for showering in the tiny tiny shower. Although there is a plug in heater. The bed was uncomfortable with very thin mattress. No bedside lamp and the floor tiles in...

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of October. Had read previous reviews so expected a small room but thought the condition of the room would have been better. The bed had seem better days and the fabric was frayed and stained and the room smelled damp. The wallpaper was literally falling off the walls and the bathroom door...

The Lord Jim was a random choice for hotel for us. The website pictures are very misleading, the room was tiny for two people, bed was against a wall. The room smelt smokey even with their policy, and the shower didn't drain correctly when we got there, but they did fix it. It is a great location and a good...

WE ONLY stayed 1 night at Lord Jim Hotel but would thoroughly recommend it for the friendliness of the staff and the excellent bedroom and facilities. Also the nearness of the Tube into Central London.

I have been travelling for one month in Europe and this was the most disappointing and uncomfortable hotel. First off the extremely small, slow elevator only goes to the 3rd floor and so I had to haul my bags up a narrow, winding staircase to the 4th floor. The room was very small and sparse - such as no night...
