Just got back from staying at the Best Western Burns Hotel in Barkston Gardens, Kensington, London, right in Earls Court - ALL I CAN SAY IS...GREAT! The location was a two-minute walk to the Earls Court Tube station and the area is filled with some good little cafés and pubs.
We found the hotel to be very accommodating: we arrived at Heathrow at 630am on an overnight flight from Canada; from the airport, the tube ride to the Earls Court station was about 30 minutes. The front desk person was very helpful: she requested that housekeeping clean a room for us right away b/c she knew we'd come in on the red-eye...we were in our room and taking a nap within the hour. The room itself was fine, if a bit crowded (but not uncomfortably so). It was tidy, quiet and clean; we had no complaints.
We didn't opt to eat in the hotel as the breakfast prices seemed a bit high, but we found great places on the high street in front of the tube station where we bought coffees and breakfast buns to go.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a convenient and reasonably-priced location within a few minutes' tube ride to all the areas around London (you can walk too, of course, but those maps are deceptive sometimes and what looks to be a few stations away is actually an hour by foot!).
The tube line from Heathrow stops at Earls Court and if you need to get to Gatwick, it's a 3-station stop to the Gatwick Airport train at Victoria (is that right?) Station. Now I'm rambling so I'll stop, but I do recommend this hotel highly, as does my husband!
