We stayed in the city continental due to the proximity to the underground and cool places in London, we were right about the location but about everything else no. The room were so small we barely fitted in we couldn't even fit the luggage properly, we are a family and me and my sister stayed at a pretty scary floor,...

The premise is on a nice location with a 300 meters distance from a street with restaurants, pubs etc. Room is fairly small. Fairly clean not at the standard it should have been based on the price paid. The room i was given was very noisy because just outside of the "window" which was not actually a window were three...

The hotel is perfectly situated just a few hundred meters from the tube station with supermarkets and restaurants right around the area. The hotel itself was clean and the rooms were also cleaner than you would expect for this price. The only big problem was the disgusting mould on the curtains. I don't know if it was only a problem...

Nice and convenient for tube. Room small but spotless. Bed was comfy and shower was good. Room was way too warm when we arrived, ac was set at 32. Only other gripe was that we couldn't lock door leading to courtyard

I stayed here for three nights and I was overall pleased with this hotel. The location is by far the best feature as Earl's Court station is a mere two minutes walk away. The area has a few restaurants and shops, including a grocery store, which is nice. The rooms were small, but comfortable (and clean). The breakfast was included...

Small double room with balcony and ensuite. Whist tight on space, it had everything we needed. We were only staying one night but found it quite comfortable, staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast was provided in the price and was well presented and ample supplies of everything. Close to transport and shops in Earls Court.. Would stay there again.

We arrived in London very early about 10am and check-in wasn't until 2pm so we left our bags in the luggage room. I was worried about what the room would be like as I read reviews...

This hotel is in a great location, around the corner from Earl's Court Station, which is on the District, Circle and Piccadilly lines. The hotel is very clean and the staff were pleasant and efficient, but the rooms are about the size of a closet - the smallest hotel rooms I have ever seen, and I have travelled quite a...
