I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of Sept on a business trip. I took a studio for around 140 GBP a night (w/o breakfast) which was better value than the other options nearby. I chose this style of acc. over a hotel because I was going to spend a lot of time working from the room and here I would have space and amenities such as fridge, microwave etc.
I actually stayed in 2 different apartments during my stay (reason below) and I can say both were very stylishly decorated, looked relatively newly decorated, everything in working order and very clean. They aren't very big by European standards, but coming from Hong Kong they are bigger than average here.
I only had one issue during my stay and this was the darkness of my first room. It was located 2 floors below ground level. Whilst the room had patio doors, they faced a very high wall which extended up to the ground level and therefore let in practically no natural light.
As I'd arrived on long haul, was jet lagged and was going to be working during the day this was not ideal, so I requested a room change to which the reception staff were understanding. The next day they moved me up one floor to the basement level to a room with a large window next to the lift. At first I was worried about lift noise (old building = thin walls) but there was practically none.
The beds are two singles attached together but still very comfortable and I slept very well not noticing the join.
The location is great, the hotel is really close to the Tube and Earls Court Road with all its amenities. M&S food store at the end of the street. Lots of pubs restaurants etc also nearby. If you want somewhere cool and quirky to eat/drink try the nearby Speakeasy, Evans and Peel - Booking is compulsory, its a very underground trendy restaurant/bar.
I would stay here again and recommend it to friends/family.
