Upon arrival I discovered my room didn't lock and I was moved into an attic room instead. The air-con didn't work and the cleaning staff had propped open the window with a toilet roll. The lift was forever breaking down and over the 12 days I was there, the fire alarm went off on 3 separate occasions; once at half...

I really can not state enough how disappointed I am with the booking policy and the reaction of the staff. Truely inhuman. When I complained, 3 times I was told people would get back to me on that day, 3 times they didn't, and they would not see my complaint. I would not recommend this if it was the only...

This was a gem. Stayed three nights and it is two minutes walk to Earls Crt Underground with plenty of restaurants close by. The street is quiet even so close to the bustle of Earls Court, with peaceful nights sleep overlooking the road. Breakfast was delightful with cereal, fruit, yogurts, toast and croissants; and served in a spacious dining area....

It's conveniently located from Earl's Cour station, only 2-3 min walk from the station. There are many shops and restaurants. The room I stayed (103) was locaed in the basement, hence dark. The room was very clean, but it was much smaller than expected. Wifi worked without any problem. The breakfast is very simple. The staff are polite enoug.

Around the corner from Earl's Court tube station, this hotel offers what you need for a trip to London: cleanliness and location. Yes, the rooms are a little small. Yes, the breakfast could be a little better. But the rooms are clean and renovated, bathrooms are modern, they have an elevator, not common in this type of places, and all...

If you are familiar with Fawlty Towers, this place is similar. The staff were friendly and very helpful with directions, finding a restaurant and for shopping. The hotel is clean and orderly. It's very close to the Earls Court Station. The lift only goes to the third floor. If your very small room was on the 4th floor, you have...

The position of hotel is very good. The room and bathroom was average, but breakfast, OMG, every day the same, old croissant, no meat (i was ok but my partner miss it). I could not stand the terible smell from the dinning room.

I was happy with my single room it has everything you need. Most importantly it was clean. Staff were nice. Breakfast was very basic continental. I was impressed there was gluten free bread when I asked.

This is a hotel to AVOID at all costs!! Do not stay here or you will end up severely disappointed as we were! Our weekend break was ruined because of this hotel! We arrived late morning and our room was not ready that had been booked and paid for months earlier and the money taken so we said that's fine...

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...
