I'm always nervous of booking hotels in Earls Court as they tend to be a lot different in reality to what is advertised on a website. NOT so the K&K hotel. from the moment I picked up the phone to speak with the hotel to the moment we all left the staff could not have been better.

The hotel is in a great location around 5 minutes from the earls Court Tube. It has a spacious lobby/bar area where each morning coffee and water are available on a complimentary basis. It also has free WiFi which is a must in this day an age. However if you are on vacation and don't have your laptop or Blackberry then there are five terminals that you can use.

The breakfast buffet is well stocked and more than sufficed for our needs. For any smokers there is a small terrace and ample gardens out the back where you can have a tug on the weed and for non smokers the garden patio provides a wonderful resting place from the noise of London.

We had a triple room which was very well priced. The room was comfortable, a touch on the small side but clean and a decent size bathroom.

Overall, this place is a find! Clean, good value and a good location. Book it now!

My partner and I stayed here for a long weekend in September, a birthday treat for him, so I paid much more than I normally would to stay somewhere a bit special and we definately were not dissappointed.
The room was quite spacious and had french doors which led onto a lovely garden, unfortunately during our stay we could not access the garden from our room as there were repairs being carried out on the wrought iron steps.
The bathroom was quite small but the walk in shower was fabulous.
The breakfast which was included in our room rate was great, there was so much choice, including champagne, we didnt eat until after 10.00 am both mornings as it was too busy earlier than this, but it was still well stocked.
We were extremely lucky with the weather for late september and took full advantage of sitting in the lovely garden for a while each day, it was very peaceful which was an added bonus and definately enhanced our stay here.
The location of the hotel is great, very close to earls court station and only about 6 stops on the picadilly line from central london, but in a quiet residential street.
Would definately stay here again.

My husband & I stayed for one delightful night at the K+K George Hotel. The staff were very helpful. The location is great, just a short walk from Earls Court Tube Station. The room was very comfortable overlooking the garden, and the cleanliness was first class. There was a well stocked buffet breakfast, which other hotels did not seem to provide. We would definately stay here again.

Good
• Location – close to a useful tube stop but not a great one (Earl’s Court) which has elevators to all lines (Circle, District, Picadilly). Numerous convenience stores nearby.
• Lobby computer was almost always free, and there are 4 more 1 floor down, each with its own printer. Plus they have some Microsoft software loaded.
• Shower roomy enough, water was plentiful, and the Grohe fixtures were nice.
• Room, hotel overall, exterior area were quiet.
• No charge for incoming fax. And reasonably priced calling from the room.
• Good blackberry reception.
• In room safe was good size and worked well and easily.
• TV is a nice (not large) flat screen with numerous channels including in French, Spanish, Italian, German, and Japanese, but not a great selection. And from turn on to start up takes an eternity.
• Elevators are small but quick.
• Shoe horns are strong, larger than normal.

Not
• Buffet breakfast looks great in the pictures but isn’t. Bacon is undercooked and salty. Eggs are runny. Fruit selection is limited. Breads are ordinary (sliced bread from a package) or too sweet. Plus it’s 14 Pounds per person per day …
• Housekeeping. Didn’t vacuum effectively during our stay (9 days). Never were sure if towels or glasses were replaced with clean ones. Didn’t always restock the coffee/tea set with consumables. Didn’t replace used shoe wipe I left on the desk for 3 days.
• Tiny tiny rooms. An executive King barely had enough room to turn around in.
• Slow arrival of hot water in the sink. It’s hard to imagine but when I went to shave in the morning, it took 4-5 minutes (not an exaggeration) to get hot water out of the sink.
• Poor lighting in the room. Desk lamp was a joke for working.
• Not much place to sit in the room. There was a bed, a desk with chair, one more chair and a small table. No sofa. Bed was very low so didn’t serve as another seating surface.
• Closet/drawer space was efficiently organized but very limited.
• Reception personnel were quite mechanical.

Overall just doesn't measure up to comparable stays in UK or the continent. Not up to its ratings.

We were just there for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay!!!
The location is FABULOUS. It's around the corner from Earl's Court tube station on an extremely residential side street (but not scary and deserted -- just not loud and busy) and there were grocery stores and eateries galore.
We had a perfect check-in and the room was ready when we got there at 11am. I did witness some others that were not so lucky, as the hotel was oversold. The manager was dealing with a couple who for 1 night needed to go to another hotel, but she welcomed them for breakfast and made their transition very painless. I was happy with the way she handled the situation....
Just beware, they do not have doormen or accessible doorways. You need to go up several steps to get to the front door.
As far as the room goes:
It slept three of us very comfortable. 2 adults and 1 - 7 yr old child. The bathroom was really modern but so small the only way 2 of us could be in there at the same time would be to have one in the shower and the other by the sink. We made it work though.
The beds were comfortable and the duvets snugly....
Breakfast was tolerable. Cereals, croissants, eggs and sausages. We did need to repeatedly ask for coffee refills, but otherwise it was decently stocked if you go there before 10am.
The internet was free. The only issue I had was the rude Spaniard kids that insisted on sitting there for hours playing games while we waited for a free computer. No parental supervision and management was busy. I feel this should be addressed by the hotel....

Make sure to get a room that overlooks the beautiful gardens. It was a terrific view.
Our stay was great and I'll be referring this hotel to a lot of my clients. I wish I could say the same for the Paris leg of our trip....
Happy travels!!!

We have been staying here over a number of years when visiting London and it continues to be our choice - can't be beat for the price, location, and service. As per other comments the rooms are spotless, well appointed (fridge, safe, open windows), free internet in the rooms, terrific breakfast, beautiful large garden (a real treat in London) where you can bring a coffee or a bottle of wine and read and enjoy the outdoors. Close to Earls Court tube (3 minutes), good restaurants (try The Little French Restaurant - 5 min walk), safe area, grocery stores, wine store, bank, laundromat, pharmacies, all within 5 min walk.

Ask for a room facing the garden for the quietest space - some construction across the street ongoing - can be annoying if you are sleeping in.

I searched all of London for the best value, best location (very close to the Earl's Court Subway station), and the best hotel. The K&K George is an absolute hidden gem. It has everything the savvy traveller could want. The rooms are modern, clean, well appointed, and the price is one of the best values ever. The staff is superb, and the champagne, full English Breakfast Buffet is out of this world! I am a flight attendant and have stayed in hundreds of hotels and this is my pick for the City of London. The hotel is located in a beautiful neighborhood and you must eat at the most fabulous restaurant we have found in all of Europe: Benito Bistro! This Italian treasure of a restaurant is just a couple of blocks away from the hotel and you will enjoy one of the best meals anywhere! The owner is Benito and his son and family treat you to a rare experience-fabulous food, superb service, unbelievable value, and the nicest family you will meet! Enjoy!
