    The staff were very helpful and friendly.The beds were comfortable.There was coffee and tea facilities in the room. (however only one cup-but staff friendly and helpful in getting another one.)The room was comfortable-and the tv and remote all worked fine.I would definitely stay here again.

    The crumbs on the table in the bedroom suggested it had not been thoroughly cleaned and as a first impression was offputting. and disappointing- so too only one cup in the room.However since this initial impression lead to a close inspection by me of the bathroom and bedlinnen and towels which were all clean, I was satisfied.

    Locaton is excellent. Earl's Court is a great area to be in and close to the sights of London.

    Room was a bit cramped. No double bed, 2 singles pushed together with single bed linen.

    Only that we were advised that the credit card with which we had made the reservation was declined. When we checked with the credit card company they advised that they had never received a request for the payment and it most certainly would not have been declined!

    I could catch the Piccadilly Line, to and from the Airport.Was easy to find.

    very good location

    the room was very little. just the space for your suitcase. probably they put a double bed in a single room. plus the shower was bigger than the whole toilet. what i think is not so good. lucky that i spent the day outside.

  • Older travelers

    Front of house staff were very helpful and offered useful advice on local travel and attractions.

    Rooms were very small.

    Just so so. The room is clean. And everyday hotel staff tidy up the room.

    The breakfast includes bread, milk, orange juice, coffee only, even not British breakfast. The shower head sprays water to the shower room door.

    Reception open 24h.

    When I was booking hotel for my London-trip a was looking for hotels with twin-rooms- and since this hotel had twin-rooms for a nice price I ordered two- we get one and the other room was a double-room. When I complained I felt like i vas stupid, but I dont want to share bed with my mother. The breakfast vas horrible. We had to live in an different building than the reception and breakfastroom. I would not recomend this hotel for anybody!!!!

    Helpful staff

    Breakfast. It has to be either called otherwise (e.g. "tea & toast") or not offered at all.

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    It is very conveniently placed, rather close to the tube and through its two lines-Piccadily and District-its easy to reach center and Heathrow airport. Indeed quiet street, food store next corner.

    First we were given the room in the 2nd building of the hotel (mean you reach breakfast room through street) and in the basement, and it was unacceptable - the window is almost below the ground line, its dark and cold there.In two days we finally changed it for another in the main building, and that one was quite ok. Also, the breakfast is quite modest, but one can buy some addition to it in the nearby food store.

  • Single

    24 hour desk service.

    Location of room, faulty TV and kettle, breakfast service was like a cattle market.

  • Single
    5.8

    The hotel was clean and the staff did their best.

    The room was tiny. There was a shelf containing an unused fridge which could have been shelf space. Sound insulation between rooms bad. Breakfast basic.

  • Single
    7.0

    The hotel was ok, clean room and everything worked. It's a good value for money considering the location and the fact that breakfast is included.

    The only thing I didn't like was the bed, it was one of those individual ones where you can literally only fit yourself into it.

  • Couple
    7.0

    Was very tidy and nice rooms. Very posh!

    My kettle plug did not reach the plug and when i phoned reception - he said he 'couldn't do anything about it' was only him working in the hotel so i couldn't have a hot drink the whole time i was there!

  • Older travelers

    We felt we were in a cupboard! It was really only suitable for single occupancy. We did not accept the first room we were given and this was only marginally better.
