Loved the hotel. Great location - beautiful & quiet residential neighborhood, immaculately clean and stylish deluxe room with mini kitchen and enough space for our family of 4 (including 2 teenage boys), terrific and always cheery staff. Sainsbury's and Marks & Spencer close by to bring in basic provisions. Easy walk to the museums (V&A, Science, Natural History) and Harrods, and the tube stop is a 5 minute stroll. Just a 15 minute ride to get to Wimbledon. Would recommend base2stay in a heartbeat to anyone travelling to London!

Very good location, great staff, clean bathroom and bedroom. The only minor negative is the very small bedroom, which I expected. Overall great value

This is really the way to go for the traveller who does not intend to spend all their time in the room. No room service, no resturants, no fitness centre, no business lounge, no club floor, no breakfast. What they do provide however are spotlessly clean and comfortable rooms, a very clever free interenet service via the TV in each room, a little kitchenette with a microwave where I could heat up food, plates, wines glases and cutlery (a great idea), a kettle and a little vending machine for water and little snacks.

Location was not smack in the centre of town, but it is in a nice, safe residential district, and close enough to get into the heart of town easily. The hotel is only 3 minutes from Earl's Court Tube station, which has the benefit of being a terminus for the District Line and being on the Picadilly LIne as well - very easy to get to Soho, West End etc. Earl's Court is also great for the fact that it is one of the few handicap friendly Tube stations, which means easy access to elevators (useful also when you are lugging luggage around).

Kudos to the absolutely fantastic staff as well - they were welcoming, helpful and gave the impression that they would do anything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. I was late for a lunch meeting and had to drop my host of rather heavy bags and run without checking in, only returning late in the evening. When I got back, the bags were already neatly in the room, with all the documents ready for a quick check-in. Brilliant.

Finally, another great idea was that they have was the availibility of rooms for booking by the hour after checking out. This is fantastic for travllers (like us) who had a flights in the evening. We could chill out in the room, take a bath, use the facilities, before getting picked up to go to the airport. A great boon.

As a frequent taveller to London I have stayed at many hotels, but this definitely it the best. It's «home away from home». The location is perfect, with easy acces to the city and Heathrow Airport. The staff is very friendy and helpful. The rooms are very comfy and have all you need. I especially liked the digital radio with a great selection of music. And the kitchenette is just super. This definitely is the place to stay when visiting London. On business or pleasure!

Previous reviewers have more than covered all of the excellent aspects of Base2Stay, however if I could just mention a few of my own -
1) Location - stunning, handy, quiet, beautiful
2) 'The Team' - absolutely 5 Star - these folk are genuinely great at prividing hospitality - (note to owners - look after them and keep hold of your staff - there are 100's of other places in London who 'sholud' have staff as good as yours, and who are charging 3 or 4 times the rates you do. But your team's pride in their jobs is obvious - well done all!)
3) Showers - nothing worse that a bad shower - the Base2Stay showers are FAB!
All in all a great stay - and the Bruce Springsteen concert we attended in Hyde Park was amazing too!

The first thing you notice is the security of the Hotel - you need to buzz for reception before you can get into the front door, then use your security key once you have checked in. The second thing is the welcoming friendly staff which never ceased to continue throughout our two day stay at the hotel along with the bright, fresh reception area - the large bowl of sweets offered on the reception desk kept the sugar levels up as you leave for a day out shopping in town .

Our ground floor room was very clean with a view over a mews courtyard and the on suite bathroom/shower was also very clean, although the shower head had a mind of it's own when it came to getting a shower, it kept tilting forward like a 'limp' lettuce and needed to be placed quite firmly into it's holder for it to work correctly, but over all this wasn't a problem. And once mastered, the push button toilet worked very well.

The TV reception was a little pixelated at times but this could be due to the hot weather (25 degs) causing a bad signal and reception said they would look at it if it was causing a problem. We didn't watch too much TV for this to be a problem.

The kitchenette was 'compact and bijou' and very cleverly hidden behind closing doors with sufficient, crockery and utensils for anyone’s needs. Do take some basic supplies when you stay such as milk and tea bags, although supplied by the Hotel, but were not topped up each day - we understand you can order 'Breakfast Boxes' from reception at a reasonable price.

Base2stay is a good place to stay and reflected good value for money compared to other family members who stayed in nearby cheaper Hotels with lower standards and noise from the underground trains.

Base2stay is just a very short walk from Earls Court Station ( no noise from the underground in our room) giving you easy access to the rest of London - we would recommend the 'pay as you go' Oystercard for travelling on the Underground and Buses. There are many lovely Coffee shops, pubs and convenience shops also within a short walk, which gives it a 'Village' atmosphere

Kensington /Earls Court has some wonderful streets to wander around with it’s whitewashed Georgian houses /Mews that reflected the sun. Where flower baskets hung on almost every Windowsill and Doorway. Where the trees in the nearby private parks provided much needed dapple shade on what was a very hot and sunny two day stay in London.
