This hotel is in central London, about 5 minutes walk from Earls Court and Gloucester Road tube stations. It’s just 30 metres from the busy Cromwell Road and as a result is noisy even with the window closed; there is no soundproofing to the room we were in.
We had room 204, an en suite double room. Both the bedroom and the shower room were very compact but very clean and pleasantly furnished. In view of other comments, maybe the hotel are progressively refurbishing? The bed could be accessed from only one side and from the end – about 750mm and 900mm of space respectively. There was a wardrobe in the corner and a chest of drawers on which the kettle and items for tea and coffee stood. There was just room to place a medium-sized case flat on the floor and still leave standing space in front of it.
The washbasin was in a corner of the shower room and tiny. To illustrate this, it was possible to fill the kettle only one-third full, and splashing of water around the bowl when washing was unavoidable.
It was a very hot day (by British standards) when we were there. Despite there being no air-conditioning and having the window closed overnight (because of the noise) the temperature was acceptable.
Continental breakfast is served but we booked room only and had a very filling traditional English breakfast for almost the same price in Gloucester Road Arcade, next to the tube station.
The staff were polite. Check-in without other prior arrangement is 2pm or after, and checkout is 11am latest. There is a small lift.
In summary, if you want somewhere clean and convenient for central London but aren’t concerned about noise or space, and are paying under £100 per night then this is good value.
