This was the first hotel we stayed in our honeymoon trip which also was the worst one. The first front desk staff we met told us that he was taking care of a lady instead of greeting us or telling us politely to wait for a while. Inability to be multitasking is not the main problem, but impoliteness is the...

Our stay here was booked through an agency/discount travel group but was rated well and we were told it was "close" and easy access to London. When we looked at pictures online it looked quaint, clean and comfortable. We didn't really find this to be the case. We had 3 rooms booked to accommodate all of us. The phone in...

For the price, very modest and workable. Don't expect anything luxurious. Single rooms are small, twin size bed up on the fourth floor with no elevator access. Actually, room felt like what would have been servants quarters in the 1900s. :) Literally, one block and around the corner from Earl's Court Station. Leaving early in the morning, though, staff misinformed...

Hotel is in a quiet area, conveniently located close to Earls Court Station. Room was big and spacious. Breakfast was good. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Plenty of Pubs, Restaurants & Supermarkets close by.

We needed a hotel as we were down for the rugby and found that Earl's Court is a simple tube ride from St Pancras and also to get to Richmond. There are plenty of good restaurants and pubs around so workers on all levels. The receptionists were very friendly and looked after our luggage until after we came back from...

Overall the Hotel was very poor. The Location was good but the Hotel had very little facilities and the rooms were small. Unfriendly staff. We had to pay upfront and could not see the room. The corridors were small with noisy doors. I would not stay in this hotel again.

The location is great, just around Earl's Court Tube station. When you exit the station go right and at the junction right again. The hotel is located 150meter on the left hand side. When you enter the hotel you're greeted with a not so friendly staff member. We arrived at 10 in the morning and there was just one toilet...

The hotel is clean and tidy and value for money. Don't come expecting anything posh, but if you're just wanting a base with a clean bed and shower then look no further. The breakfast room is like a football match and there's nowhere near enough tables, that's my only complaint!

Contrary to other reviews that we read before we went, we found the staff at reception to be welcoming and helpful. The 2 minute walk to Earls Court station made this a great base for London. The rooms are comfortable and the bathrooms were spotless! Breakfast was sufficient and although busy, we always got a seat. We would definitely stay...

Stayed here for one night, hotel is basic,nothing out of the ordinary. It seems very tight along the corridor's and is a little confusing in layout. The room was OK bog standard with tea/ coffee etc. The breakfast room is quite compact and was very busy. Basic buffet offering. This hotel is good for a base to lay your head.
