The hotel is actually pretty good. You get a standard room with most things you actually would expect, a comfortable bed, clean shower and bathroom, TV etc.. They have wireless internet which you need to get a voucher for from reception, it is a little pricey at I think around 6-8 pounds for 4 hours. The rooms are not huge, but they are sufficient. The toilet is a little weird though, the door to the the bathroom opens up to also act as a door for the toilet which is just on the inside.
They are clean rooms which is always nice and the staff are very friendly. There was only one problem with the stay and that was a noisy airco system just above the door to the room. It seemed to make a noise like a toilet filling up. I even turned the thing off and it would stop for a while and then come on again later. Apart from that the rooms are very quiet and the bed was very comfortable. The elevator has windows which look out onto the street while you are going up and down.
The street is full of great restaurants and smaller eateries. I tried the Lilly Indian restaurant just around the corner, it was not as good as the Masala Express which you will find by turning left out of the hotel, walk to the corner (where the Lilly is) cross the street and it will be less than 50m just up there. It is a small family run place and the food was much tastier that at the Lilly. There is also a great vegetarian restaurant just across the road from the hotel, the food is fantastic.
There is a breakfast buffet and consists of some bread which you can toast, croissants, cheese, yoghurt, fruit, coffee, tea and some juices. They also have some muffins which are individually packed, so you can take some for your days exploring of London!
The staff are friendly and the rooms were always tidied and cleaned daily. Location is not too bad, as long as you dont mind a simple 5-10 minute walk to get to the underground.
Not a bad hotel! Just dont expect 5* luxury and service.

Easy(ish) to get to and quick checkin. Room was very clean with the usual Hoilday Inn bed , bathroom, etc. Room was surprising quiet for London and I would stay there again.

Stayed: September 2007

Stayed here for 2 nights and got a great rate by booking and paying in advance. The hotel was clean, quiet and great value for a family. On site parking was an added bonus. It is a 5 min brisk walk fom West Kensington tube- but the Tesco express was a handy half way stop off point to get supplies etc. The staff were helpful and friendly and whilst breakfast was a little busy ( half-term) it was fine.

I loved the Express, I have stayed in other Expresses and this was the best, more like a regular Holiday Inn than the Express. Rooms are quick big and the bathroom was nice with a sassy blue nightlight shinning through the frosted glass.

It's in a good location for Chelsea fans and those going to Earls Court, 5 minutes will take you to either.

The bar is good too, not too expensive and you can bring in a carry out and drink it there if you wish.

There is a great view from the bar if you were there when I was, there was an exibition on down the road in Earls Court and the promotional girls "almost" dressed in leather were in for a drink on their break lol

I think it only cost us £80 per person for 2 nights, so it's completely worth it for where it is.

My boyfriend and I loved this hotel. We booked a double smoking room for 3 nights. I was expecting it to be a small room considering most hotel rooms are in London, but it was actually quite big. We had a nice sized television as well and the sofa bed looked nice. The air conditioning kept us quite cool. We felt like we were in Heaven! The bathrooms were really nice as well and the shower was lovely.

The continental breakfast was good. I liked the fact that there were a variety of foods to choose from and not just a croissant and toast. It is a small seating area for breakfast, so I'd suggest getting down there as soon as possible or else it will be hard to find a table to sit at.

The staff were very knowledgeable about London and were friendly. The lobby was very well kept, and this hotel had a vending machine that was fully stocked. The lifts in the hotel were glass which made a very beautiful view as you were going up.

To use the hotel's internet in the lobby is a bit steep. We had to pay £4 for half an hour of internet. It's a bit pricey, but the nearest internet cafe looks a bit dodgey.

There were a few downsides to this hotel. First off, the nearest tube station (West Kensington, not Earl's Court like we were led to believe) is about a mile away, so be prepared to walk a lot if you don't have a car. The location isn't that great, and there's not a nice restuarant nearby unless you feel like walking a bit. Plus, we only had one pillow each and had to ask for more pillows. and on one occassion, the hotel staff came into our room to clean even though we had the do not disturb sign up.

Overall, we had a good experience and would recommend this hotel.
