We went for a weekend to celebrate an anniversary. The hotel is literally a few minutes walk from Earls Court tube station. It's compact but the staff were very welcoming at check in and acknowledged us every time we passed through reception. We were in a double comfort room, it wasn't huge but it was very clean with a comfortable...

My wife adores Georgian architecture and, so short of buying her one of these abodes in pricey Kensington-Chelsea, I did the next best thing and billeted her in a hotel of the type evocative of the era.

Firstly, this hotel is so convenient to Earls Court Tube, it's ridiculous. It's not even a 2 minute walk to the tube station entrance - LOVE THAT!

Centrally located near Earls Court tube station, this hotel offers clean, quiet comfortable rooms. The bathroom is adequate with a nice hot shower. The traditional English breakfast included in the price is exceptional. Although small, the hotel offers an elevator to the upper floors. The staff are very polite and helpful. This is my go to hotel when staying in...

We spent a week at this hotel as our base for our first trip to London. The location is great, just a few minutes walk to the tube. The room was small, but very well setup so we were able to stow our luggage away on the top shelf and use the other shelves to put our clothes. We found...

I stayed for 2 nights in business, check the size of the room Before you book. I ended up with a basement room and it was so claustrophobic I had to request a change. Everything was clean food was nice ok for a short stay.

“hotel ok if all you want to do is sleep after a day out as there are no lounge or bar facilities and no evening meals offerred. Not suitable for disabled people as the lift is very small and the hotel itself is cramped with narrow corridors ; no room for a conventional housekeepers cleaning trolley!”

“If you are on a tight schedule the breakfast room is not large, so leave a little extra time in case you have to wait for a free table. We only had a ten minute wait though.”
