We stayed one night at Base2Stay whilst visiting the International Horse Show at Olympia (one stop away on the tube from Earls Court).

The hotel is about a 3 min walk from Earls Court Tube and a street full of restaurants, take aways, off licences, supermarkets, really handy if you want something to eat and drink. There is a vending machine at the hotel which has chocolate, crisps, cans of drink etc.

Check in was the quickest ever, no queues of people, a nice greeting from the receptionist.

We had a standard double room on the 3rd floor, which had everything we needed - lovely comfy bed, nice clean modern bathroom, nice flat screen TV positioned perfectly for watching from bed!, mini kitchen with cutlery and plates/cups/glasses/microwave, free internet through the TV, and good storage space.

The whole hotel was very clean and modern and tastefully decorated, even the christmas wreath on the front door was classy!

I would def recommend this place if visiting/working in places in West London.

This was a good place to stay. Very small room, but very clean. Had a fridge and mini-kitchenette in a closet. Good location 2 minutes from Earl's Court tube station. I agree with others that it's a good place but think it may be a little overhyped. There are other places in London cheaper and also quite adequate. The much-ballyhooed internet service through the TV set was annoying and practically useless. The pay-for internet service worked well.

We’re grateful to you for your views, which in one major respect “hit the nail on the head”. It’s always possible to find somewhere cheaper, but we believe that it’s not just the exceptional level of service and range of facilities, including a/c and the mini-kitchen, that make base2stay unique and great value for money. Additionally, what differentiates us from almost every other hotel offering this level of quality is the lack of extra charges at every turn. Our aim is for an “all-inclusive” pricing structure, so that there are no annoying extras to load guests’ bills. In this regard, WiFi is being installed and we hope shortly to be able to offer complimentary internet for all types of connectivity.

We stayed here over a beautiful weekend in December. The hotels location is great, about 3 minutes walk from Earls Court station and the tube to most places you'd want to go. Within walking distance of Chelsea, Kensington, Hyde park etc. Hotel itself is clean, tidy and reasonably priced.

I did stay here about three years ago and thought the staff were pretty poor and unhelpful. Now the difference couldnt be more marked - very keen to help, friendly and welcoming.

Ill stay here every time I go london!

We were introduced to Base by the owners and really enjoy the simple, yet comfortable surroundings in a great location. The package is rounded off by the team who are friendly, helpful and accommodating! Altogether a unique experience that we'd happily recommend.

My friend and I stayed at Base2Stay November 6-12 for a girlfriend getaway, and were very pleased with our choice. We were looking for a hotel that was under £150 per night, on the Piccadilly line, a short walk from the nearest tube stop, had two beds, an in-room safe, and a mini-kitchen. Base2Stay ticked every box and then some.

We paid £134 per night for a twin room, and it was a decent size - not large, but there was ample room for the two of us. The room had a clean, modern appearance (think Ikea furniture) and was comfortable and pleasant. The mini-kitchen was discretely hidden behind a set of doors, and there was a small desk and flat screen TV with internet. The kitchen was equipped with a microwave, kettle, and mini-fridge, and included plates, silverware, and glasses for two, as well as a decent corkscrew. Limited free internet access was provided, but I found the setup to be too slow and cumbersome. My friend has more patience, and used it to send emails on most evenings.

The room and bathroom were very clean, and the carpet and furniture were all in good condition. The room does not come with an iron, but I requested one and it was delivered promptly along with an ironing board. My only complaint is that the sheets were not changed at all during our six night stay.

One of the selling points for us was the arrival base - you can rent a room for £15 an hour upon arrival, which would allow you to freshen up. We didn't need to use it though, since we had only a short wait until our room was ready, despite arriving at 9:30 am. Still, I think this is a great option for early morning arrivals.

We found the staff to be very accommodating and friendly, and they were happy to put half of the bill onto each of our credit cards. The hotel is in a quiet neighborhood, and I didn't hear any street noise or anything from the surrounding rooms.

I liked the Earls Court area because of the variety of shops and restaurants. It caters to both residents and tourists, and the streets weren't filled with tacky souvenir shops. We had a great meal at It's Greek to Me, and a very overpriced and "just OK" meal at Mr. Wing's (they could at least serve Chinese mustard with the spring rolls instead of plain old yellow). There were some nice bakeries, a post office, and cheap internet café across from the tube stop. The Earls Court Exhibition Center and the Brompton Cemetery are both just about a ten minute walk from the hotel.

I was really pleased with the accommodations and location, and would highly recommend Base2Stay.

Absolutely Loved It! Fantastic location just a short stroll to Earls Court Station. On Picadilly Line with lifts and ramp to road so easy to arrive directly from Heathrow with luggage.
Fab resteraunts, Pubs, M & S food supermarket, post office, ATMs and Laundromat all within a very easy walk.
Queen Bed room and Kitchenette facilities whilst compact were exceptionally well designed and easy to live in. Simple things like space under the bed for suitcases all made. Internet via the TV was useful even though slightly cumbersome. Decor of the rooms and entire property was very calming, just a fab find. Would highly recomend and definately return.
