Reasonable deal for the low season

Location is convenient: hotel is on a quiet side street by Earl's Court station. Piccadilly line goes directly to Heathrow (~40min) or Piccadilly Circus (~10min). Bus line 74 from Selfridges (food hall exit) on Oxford Street takes just under 30min. Area feels safe and there are numerous dining opportunities (from convenience stores to pubs). Room was small - bathroom in particular. Toilet cubicle is very narrow. Room is in need of a refurbishment but looked clean. Linens were not: small spot on pillow and washed-out stain on bath towel. Bed was soft and springy. Floor screeched at every step. Hotel was very warm (winter) - there is no temperature control in room. Coffee/Tea maker in room but no fridge and no microwave. Staff was friendly and helpful. Overall reasonable for the price paid but would not stay at full price.

Nice room but don't order room service.

I was in a single room which was clean and had a bath so I was happy. Being next to the lift meant the room 'clunked' every time someone used the lift so was a bit tired after my three nights. On my last night I thought I'd get room service. 8 pounds for a 'steak burger' which was less steak and more ground beef which would be served at school camp. Very disappointing especially when you pay another 2 quid to eat it in your room! My recommendation would be to get a double room (Single beds are the pits!) and buy your dinner at the many venues on the main street a few minutes walk away.

Excellent location. Room exceptionally

Excellent location. Room exceptionally small and nowhere to put 2 cases. There was a "Trouser Press" which was not necessary, but was there anyway. The Reception staff were not English and extremely hard to speak with. Breakfast was good apart from the only fruit for our cereal being grapefruit. It would have been nice to have had some peaches/apricots etc. However, it was a great location in a very good part of Longon - also extremely close to the shops and railway station.

Overall a good experience. Great location close to the Earl's Court tube station. We had a quiet comfortable room - small as usual for London but larger than I have had in the past. Could use some renovation/upgrading soon. Good breakfast.

Good value for money at the rates

Good value for money at the rates which [website] offer. But there is no way it is worth the rates they offer you directly (£165 for a twin room - gasp). Good location just off Earls Court Road, 2 mins walk from Tube station. Nice area, good value basic hotel.

Good location, just around the

Good location, just around the corner from Earls Crt tube station which has wheelchair access. Hotel clean and the bedroom, although somewhat small, was comfortable and warm. We stayed at the hotel during the coldest spell the UK has experienced in around 20 years. Although our room was warm the same could not be said of the bar area which was too cold to be comfortable but the service was good. Will definitely stay here again.
