“Nice but noisy ”
Reviewed June 21, 2014 via mobile

We stayed 2 nights in June hotel in good location , clean staff friendly . If you stay make sure you don't get a room located on the basement floor especially room 7 as it right next to the door that staff use and constantly banging from 7am , also staff sit right outside opposite window on there breaks twice we had to ask them to be quiet they did apologies and when we complained the receptionist was nice and appoligised but would defiantly not recommend staying in this room .

After staying in the worst hotel ever the previous night, we booked this hotel at 1am and luckily got the last room which was a cancellation. Hotel is near the tube. Staff are friendly and professional. We arrived really early as we were eager to leave the last flea pit and although we were unable to book in ( which we knew) we could leave our bags and go out for the day. The room was small but really comfy and the bathroom was lovely. The hotel is spotless! Breakfast was excellent value for money. We were able to leave our bags the next day while we did a bit more sight seeing before the train home. Next time I'm in London this hotel will be my 1st choice.

We stayed here for the last leg of our recent trip to London and found The Boltons to be more than adequate given it only has a 3* rating. Recently refurbished, the rooms were fresh and modern and the staff friendly and accommodating.
The location, set off a main street in Earls Court, is close to many shops, pubs and the London Tube so, although shopping wasn't great for clothes, Harrods and other premium shops in nearby Knightsbridge or High st was easily accessible. If you were keen to check out some of London's best museums however, then this location was ideal.
The breakfast buffet included in our deal was adequate keeping in mind the 3* rating - usual continental breakfast on offer although dining room is quite compact and fills up pretty quickly.
Overall - certainly think this hotel delivers well on value for the price you pay compared to other hotels in London. Rooms may have been small, but no smaller than some of its much more expensive 5* competitors - what you save on accommodation, you can spend on shopping!

I stayed at this hotel with my girlfriend just for one night. Denisa from receptions was great, really helpful and friendly. The room is very tidy, the bed is very comfortable. The rooms look newly refurbished and re-done, the bathroom is very modern. The hotel is very close to Earl's Court subway station and the neighborhood is pretty quiet (or it was while we were there).

I would definitely recommend this hotel for a city break.

A good position near the tube, kind personnel,quiet and comfortable room (little but essential). I found italian speaking personnel that it is always appreciated! I didn't try the breakfast (10GBP was a little bit expensive even for a continental breakfast).

A very cosy little hotel near the underground station.

Pro:
Good location to underground station - a must when staying in London
Great Bed
Free upgrade from single to double bed.
Value for Money

Cons:
The hot water in the bath will always sprout very hot water every 8 seconds (i counted), even though the temperature is already adjusted.
Simple breakfast menu
Small lift to room level

Room Tip: Go for a double bed, you will appreciate the bed comfort.

Arrived at the hotel after 5 hours driving to be told "No parking" Check in staff were unsure where the nearest parking was ! In the end i was directed to park at the Ibis Hotel, which was a 15 minute walk ! The Best western Welcome......No Paper in the Morning, The only saving grace was that the checkout lady was very nice.........Below standard for Best Western This Hotel is a room only hotel No bar etc ! Next time I will just stay at the Ibis !!!!
