“pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor I was a slightly worried about staying at 1 Lexham Gardens. However, my stay here was better than expected.

I stayed just one night with a friend during a 'fly in'' trip to London, so all we needed was a good value, basic hotel to rest our heads for a few hours.

We booked just a twin room, but were instead given what could be classed as a family room with a double bed and two singles pushed together. There was also a sofa in the room, a spacious wardrobe, coffee making facilities and LCD TV. The bathroom was fairly modern and big and consisted of a shower, wash basin and toilet.

Okay, the rooms could do with a bit of TLC and cosmetic touch-ups, but we found it to be comfortable, clean, and practical.

If you're looking for somewhere fairly cheap to stay for a no-thrills quick stop off in London, then I would recommend staying at 1 Lexham Gardens.

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor and had no problems, so maybe ask for a room here?

We've just returned from a night at this hotel, and was pleasantly surprised after reading some of the comments on here. Our room on the second floor facing the back, and the bathroom were very large and modern, ok the walls were a little shabby, but it was clean and quiet and we had a good nights sleep in a very comfy bed. The breakfast was just cereals, toast, beans and eggs but was perfectly adequate. The location of the hotel is fantastic, between Earls Court and Gloucester Road tubes, just a few
stops from the West End. For a cheap and cheerful hotel in the heart of London, you really cant go wrong here.

Room Tip: Advise a high room facing the back for quietness.

Stayed in double bed basement room 001. The room was very small and shabby. The bathroom was very small and freezing cold. The window in the bathroom looked onto a dark utility room. The room itself looked onto a dirty courtyard which was frequented by the hotel staff. The hotel is located in a good location and was easy to find, however this doesn't make up for the poor state of the room and getting no sleep due to the CONSTANT banging from the room upstairs. To give a fair review another room not on basement floor may be better but I wouldn't stay there again.

Room Tip: Don't have a room on the basement floor

I am currently sitting in Lexham gardens hotel. We were given a small basement room which is not brilliant, but we were ok with it for the great location and price. No real problems until tonight, our third and final night. Woke up half an hour ago because my hands felt like they were burning, turned the light on to find a large bed bug in the sheets. Now at 4am instead of sleeping I am sat bolt upright, mentally planning what I will do when I get home tomorrow to avoid infestation in my house. Not worth the risk of staying here, give it a miss!

The location is nice, the lobby is pleasant enough but the rooms are a bit run down and in need of a good clean. For the price and the location, it's not too bad really but I wouldn't be rushing to stay here again. Staff were nice, breakfast was OK, room was very small.
