“Pricy hotel with tiny rooms”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

The hotel is in a great location near earls court and is very convenient if you have a conference to attend near by. However, I was quite disappointed with the fact that the rooms were quite small. The shower was also annoying as the water heat keep turning from warm to cold and vise versa. I'd recommend stating only if you don't mind the size for the price. Personally, I will try another hotel next time.

the hotel is in a nice quiet street but local - 5 mins walk, to good restaurants, gastro pubs and regular high street shops. Earls court tube 5 mins maximum. Lovely building and the rooms are bijou and modern. Well equipped room and fast internet. Staff very friendly and the breakfast substantial. VERY CLEAN rooms. My room had sash windows so I did not need to have the air conditioning on. View of sculptured elephants from my window - lovely

Sometimes you get what you pay for, and in this case, this was not a bad thing. I've stayed at other hotels in the Earls Court area before and yes, they offered more amenities than the Boltons. But this time I was traveling alone and decided I'd see what I got if I paid less. I'm happy to say that at the Boltons, the missing amenities (elaborate breakfast, hotel lobby bar) were things I didn't really need anyway. My room was smaller (it was the room for one, which has one twin bed), but it was completely comfortable and had the hair dryer and coffee/tea service that I appreciate. Internet was free! (Get the daily password at the front desk.) Breakfast was not included in my deal, but that was okay because when I did partake one day, I thought it wasn't all that great -- just not worth it, what with many Earls Court Road coffee shops only half a block away. But that was definitely the only (slight) negative I can think of. The Boltons is a great value in a great neighborhood in an expensive city. I'd stay there again.

The hotel is situated just round the corner of Earl's Court tube station. Excellent location close to central london. The surrounding area is nice quiet and safe that I had morning jogging down passing by West brompton, South kensington and Fulham broadway stations. Nice cafe restaurants nearby so you dont actually need the hotel bfast. Though the room is small, its clean and just adequate. Staff is friendly and professional. I had a good stay overall.

Perfect for a short break. Convenient for considerable number of attractions. Bus stop and tube two minutes away. City 20 minutes away. Hotel staff extremely pleasant and helpful. For London this a very good value hotel.

I stayed 1 night in a single room. The room and bathroom were very clean and modern. The room had all the facilities you would expect- TV, Tea / Coffee facilities, safe, free wifi. I had a good night's sleep and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was included and was perfectly adequate. I would happily stay here again should the need arise.
