    The location was great, I can walk from Earl's court station within 5 minutes and the staff was helpful.

    The room was extremely small and could not barely walk and the hotel was so crowded due to high occupancy during my stay and when breakfast time, the breakfast room was so small and could not handle all people at the same time.I had to wait until someone finished their breakfast!

  • Family with children
    7.0

    Very close to metro station, restaurants nearby, clean rooms

    Compact rooms, hard to find place for the luggage,

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    Good location, just 5 minutes from the metro station Earl's Court, street full of shops, pubs, cheap places to eat; good breakfast, not various but plenty of cereals, croissants, bread, jams, juices and coffee. The only negative aspect is the smalliness of the rooms and they are not so clean..

  • Older travelers

    Very close to the Tube.

    Very small room. Noise within and outside the hotel was excessive.

  • Family with children

    when we arrived, the hotel staff told us the Hotel is overbooked. But he arranged another hotel for us and take care of everything. it was very helpful therefore i don't feel any uncomfortable by this case.

    the breakfast is too simple.

  • Single

    A decent breakfast

    Though I stayed at a double room by myself, the room was still too small. And room service is quite poor.

  • Couple
    7.4

    The location was great, the street was quiet... the room was clean. Also, the staff was pleasant.

    I think the pictures of the rooms and what we got did not portray an appropriate depiction of the real.

  • Single

    I used the hotel because of its closeness to Earls Court. However I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the hotel and would definitely stay there again.I have passed the details on tomany of my colleagues.

  • Couple
    4.6

    the hotel near the undergroud station, but if you want go to central still need to change, room is okay, but bathroom is very tidy.

    the staff was rude and unhelpful, for tv only 5 channels, except BBC 1, 2, 3, other for India channels, and the sheet was dirty, some insects on it.

  • Family with children
    4.2

    There was a small lounge which was good as the bedroom was so tiny. The bathroom was clean with a good shower

    The room had dirty walls , no bedside tables or drawers, no teacups in room, breakfast room ran out of milk, not enough cereal bowls(people were using cups)not enough plates , not enough tables for guests

  • Single

    The hotel suited me perfectly had everything i needed and is situated for where i want to go in london.

  • Single
    9.2

    Brilliant location. Clean rooms. Friendly staff. I would stay there again when I have more business trips in London. As it is great for a single room in peace and quiet.

    Elevator did not reach to floor. But a bit of fitness doesn't hurt.

  • Family with children
    6.2

    Upon arrival at 22:30 we were informed that we could not stay at the hotel because of "a problem" with our room. They upgraded us to a much much nicer hotel at Cromwell Road at no extra cost (though at first we were supposed to walk "10 minutes", the recepcionist finally offered to pay for the taxi)

    The staff at the reception should not call smelly taxis (and unregistered I suppose). The one we got was almost unbearable even for the short ride.

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    The location is good as it is only a few minutes from the tube.

    We are living on the 4th floor and there is no elevator for that level. We have to carry our suitcases from the 3rd floor to our level. However, this level seems to be much newer compared to the other levels.

  • Group of friends
