    Exceptional

    We enjoyed the friendly staff, the convenient location to the station and the overall atmosphere was warm and inviting. Thank you, we will return.

    Breakfast staff weren't looking very happy?

    Very good

    Clean, well-priced, efficiently run hotel in a very good location. Staff were friendly and accomodating.

    Bathroom was austere and shower was too small. Breakfast was spartan and croissants were inedible.

    Very good

    The Continental breakfast is excellent value for money. The staff immediately refill plates and coffee well before they run out. I also noticed how well they clean the tables after guests leave making sure the edges are also wiped and chairs.

    Fabulous

    The room not very good, 14A next to the toilet awake till 3amThe staff great,Pascal is great he is one member of staff you need to keep give him a pay rise a really good guy.

    14A Next to the toilet very noisy, its not a complaint, I would only recommend the the hotel because of the staff. £50 a night that was fair.

    Guest rating

    excellent location close to earl's court station and plenty of places to eat nearby good shower liked the fact that we were given new towels every day good rates and the lift was useful wiehn using heavy suitcases friendly staff

    very small room for three people and gave the sense that it was originally a double room with a third bed thrown in aswell, sort of on the side there was no hot water for the shower one of the mornings because the hotel was full and the 'pressure was to low'. surely any hoitel should be able to provide the same facilities no matter how many people are staying it was a similar story at breakfast where we were forced to wait for atable to become free because the hotel was full. i'm not saying everyine should have their own table but i think more tables should be provided especially when there is only a two hour window to have breakfast the small room was crippling on hot days as it became the sauna i un derstand it is a budget hotel but i think the basics could have been dealt with slightly better

    Good

    Short walk from the Underground at Earl's Court.

    The room was so small you could not walk between the bed and a chair which was in the room. There was a private shower, but ther wc was public.

    Fabulous

    I found the hotel was very good value for money, i am surprised that it didn't cost more. After a problem with my card to secure the room, the staff were very helpful to make sure we had a room on arrival. Would definitely stay there again on future trips to London

    Fabulous

    Yes: very small room. No problem for this solo-traveller. Room clean, needs refurbishing. Suggestion: A small desk instead of this granny-nightstand opposite the bed. Every day: Room cleaned, fresh sheets and towels! I requested -in advance- a quiet room. Got it, on third floor -61 steps up. Elevator not working. Bathroom 30 steps down. OK for this traveller who can loose some weight! Quiet street. Friendly and very helpfull staff (hi Pascal!) WiFi troughout the hotel, although my connection was rather unstable. Breakfast simple but totally OK. I didn't notice any breakfast-cues during my stay -see complaints elsewhere. Excellent location. Good value for money.

    Superb

    I think that the location, the staff, the cleanliness of our room.

    The fact that we don t have refrigerator and the room was a little bit small.

    Very good

    Nice location, friendly staff, very good value for money.

    Poor breakfast, slow and unstable internet connection, bedbug (only one I saw :-)

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    The location was excellent for our purposes. It was convenient for Underground connections and restaurant facilites were near to hand.

    The sheets on the bed were a bit too small for the size of the bed.

    Fabulous

    The staff was great and the location was super--quiet area,but next to the Underground.

    Fabulous

    Hotel staff were very helpful and were able to check us in immediently before advised time.

    We stayed on the ground floor, very noisy at night time. Difficulty sleeping. Rooms were small, difficulty in opening suitcases.
