I stayed at The Rockwell during Covid and was immediately shocked with how clean and safe I felt there. I was equally greeted by their extremely kind manager, Roxana. I had such an amazing experience that I stayed here again and again. This review is long overdue. Not only is the location perfect for getting around the city but Roxana went above and beyond to make sure I had everything I need. I can't recommend this hotel enough!
I’ve just returned from spending three nights here with my fiancé to celebrate my 40th birthday. Our room was beautifully decorated with it’s own terrace and tea and had a really luxurious feel to it with lovely bed linen and fluffy towels. Roxana on the front desk was really friendly and helpful and the hotel was ideally situated being only five minutes walk from Earl’s Court tube station. Thank you for making my birthday so special.
In January 2020, I stayed at the Rockwell Hotel for a few nights. I was visiting due to a VERY SPECIAL REASON. It was my 50th BIRTHDAY... and... I was born in London, at a hospital only a few minutes walk from this hotel - which I wanted to visit (though the hospital building had been converted to residential apartments). There was also another reason why I chose to stay at The Rockwell Hotel. Back when I was born, The Rockwell used to be called ‘The Monarch’..... Both my mother and father worked at this hotel before I was born. My mother worked in housekeeping while pregnant of me... and my father worked at the reception desk. I can’t even put into words what it meant for me to stay at this hotel. I grew up far away, in South America, so it was the first time in my life visiting this location. It was truly emotional to be a guest at The Rockwell. My mother passed away a few years ago and I’m sure she would have been delighted to know I was staying there. When I arrived, I showed my birth certificate to the manager Roxana, and told her my story. The staff treated me like royalty, made my stay the most pleasurable possible because they knew what a special moment that was for me. Roxana showed me which parts of the hotel were remodelled and which are still original from the Monarch era, like the lovely tiled floors downstairs and the beautiful stair railings leading upstairs. My husband and I stayed in a lovely spacious room with a private entry and view to the garden. The location of this hotel was great! Only a few minutes walk to Earl's Court Metro and to the rest of touristic London. All in all, I couldn’t have wished for a more perfect celebration of my 50 years of life. I hope I can come back in 50 years, to celebrate my 100th 😁!! Thank you Roxana and Staff.... xoxoxo…
We wanted somewhere chic but inexpensive to stay for a few days in London. The Rockwell was a great choice - lovely large room with its own, private terrace and only a five minute walk to Earl's Court rube station. The restaurant was closed whilst we were there due to the coronavirus but we were able to sit outside in a secluded terrace area and enjoy a few drinks. Roxana at reception was really friendly and so helpful. We'll definitely return.
The Rockwell is in a great location, only 5 mins walk from Earl's Court tube station and close to shops, restaurants and coffee shops. The hotel is casual/boutique and the front desk staff are very friendly and helpful and they always greet you when you come in or go out. The Superior Double room was fairly spacious and I was assigned to the larger room without even having to ask. That was nice! The shower stall is a bit small though and has nowhere to put anything. Will definitely stay here again.
