Holiday Inn Express Earls Court

Reviewed 23 March 2009

This hotel is an excellent value through Hotwire. It is located on North End Road - a straight walk down to the West Kensington tube stop on the District line or the other direction to West Brompton, also on the District Line, or just a few blocks more to Earl's Court tube on the Piccadilly line which is a 15 minute ride to the West End.

You can walk to the North End Road street market for fresh fruit and general shopping/food - Clarks discount shoe store, groceries, Indian take-away, fish and chips, etc. You are also fairly close to The Troubadour for coffee, meals, live music.

I really enjoyed the breakfast - it's not a "full English" but has a selection of cheeses, fresh rolls, cereal, tinned fruits, yogurt, coffee, tea, etc. The staff works hard to keep the food stocked because there were always a lot of people - but there are enough seats that we never had to wait to find a place to sit during our week's stay.

Positives:
Price
Location
Breakfast
Staff
Large rooms by London standards
Clean and good housekeeping

Negatives:
Beds are too soft and spongy
Walls can be a bit thin if someone is in the room beside you
The A/C is loud

I would definitely recommend to friends and family and hope to stay at the hotel again in the future.

Good value for a London hotel. Not centrally located but accessible by taxi and tube. Very handy if arriving by car as easy drive off the A4 and reasonably priced secure car parking. Usual holiday inn express basic offer, but clean, not overly noisy and relatively new.

I obtained this hotel through Hotwire and received an excellent rate. Even at their standard rack rates, I feel this hotel would be a great place to stay. It is about a 6-7 minute walk from two tube stations, immaculate in the lobby, hallways, and rooms. The rooms and bathrooms were well laid out and large. All of the staff members provided excellent service and were very friendly! The lift was a wonderful bonus, as all that walking had us really tired out. I can not say one negative or neutral thing about this hotel. If I ever make it back to London, I will definitely stay there again. The breakfast was plentiful and had a good variety. Remember, this is not the Ritz- it's better! Thank you to all of the staff members I encountered there. They even let us check in early because one member of our party was ill.

1. The hotel comes with a good value ($59 for a room per night for 2 people) compared to the price paid. The variety of breakfast is limited but adequate consider it is included in the room rate. But it is even more cheaper than a Hostel or Youth's Hostel for 2 people.

2. The bedding is not really comfortable in my opinion. They are cheap mattress pillows and blanket compared to Holiday Inn. The bathroom was okay.

3. The taxi booked by the hotel is extremely expensive. I don't recommend anyone pay for it because if so you will save money on a hotel (and quality) but spend on the taxi which is ridiculous.

4. The location is not really near to the tube station and it is a little far from city center.

5. There were noises from the hotel inside.

Just returned from 3 night stay. As previous reviews noted, location is a bit out of the way, but manageable. Neighborhood was fine - I felt perfectly safe walking to and from tube stop 7 min. away. Hotel was very clean, but the room was incredibly small for a family of four. The second bed was a sofa bed that was pulled out. There was literally no room for suitcases and maneuvering the small space was tough. As we did not plan on spending time in our room, this was not a huge deal, although I likely wouldn't choose this hotel again when traveling with children. The breakfast was well done - plenty of choices and well stocked.

The primary issue I had came when it was time to get a taxi to the airport. My husband requested a taxi from the front desk. We had taken a city cab from Heathrow when we arrived which was great. Up rolls a small nissan with no taxi sign, clearly not a licensed cab. I verified with the driver the cost as I was wary about what we would be charged upon arrival. There was no meter in the cab - clearly this was a friend of the hotel staff. The driver did not know the way to Heathrow (!) and had to stop and make a call for directions. Once we arrived, he didn't know what terminal we should be dropped at, had to make another call, and then managed to miss the correct exit for passenger drop off. We ended up in a parking garage, and had to lug our bags up a couple flights of stairs. A very strange experience. If you need to request a cab, verify with the front desk that they are calling a city cab. If I was traveling alone, I would have felt very uncomfortable just getting into a random car that was clearly not a licensed taxi.

Despite the frustrating taxi experience, we found the hotel to be very clean, and an economical choice for London if you don't mind it being a bit out of the way.
