Great Location and Comfortable

Being just two minutes walk from Earls Court tube station and with numerous shops, bars, restaurants, a post office and a dry-cleaner just outside means that this is perfect place to stay if you need to be in London without having to be in the unfairly expensive centre. The hotel has ok modern rooms with all the facilities you would need. Some of them are very small though, so don't expect much space. The corridors are similarly small. Also on the negative side: the walls are very thin and noise from both other guests, their TVs and housekeeping staff in the morning may be intrusive. However I have always found the staff to be polite, eager to help and friendly (which certainly doesn't apply to ALL London hotels). All in all: good value in a great location.

Good value and location

This hotel has had several different names over the last few years and was smartly rennovated a while ago. Though there are now a few cracks and marks here and there it is still VERY good value for its comfort and location. Also the staff are consistently friendly, helpful and nice, and that makes staying a very positive experience. Some of the rooms are small, but others more generous in size, and all have good facilities. Tha bathrooms are particularly nice. There is some noise transferrence from neighbouring rooms because of thin walls, but the beds are very comfortable and you will sleep well. The lobby is small, as are the corridors and lift, but this is as to be expected in a smaller hotel. With Earl's Court underground station only two minutes walk away, and all manner of little shops, cafés, pubs etc close by, the location is as perfect as you could want. All in all this adds up to being a great place to stay at a very reasonable price compared to many other similar hotels.

ok for a short stay

Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms are not as grand as they appear in the pictures! Ours was so small that you had to go outside to change your mind. Backs onto the railway line, so trains going past every few minutes, but it didn't bother us, we slept fine. Good location to Earls Court Tube Station as only a couple minutes walk away. Shower room was clean but again very small. We only stayed one night and were satisfied.

Good location, good room facilities

Small but comfortable and clean room with good facilities, including air condition. Paid for three nights in advance but also had to pay a deposit of 30 £, that I did not receive back immediately on leaving, but is supposed to be returned to my credit card account. It is fair enough, that there need to be some kind of security against damages for the hotel, but normally this is done by a copy of your credit card, which you then see being torn up on your leaving the hotel.

Noisy

Just on the other side of the wall of my room, trains were passing every minute 20 hours a day. Ought to be mentioned, when booking a room.

Great rooms but tiny

Very, very clean rooms, and everything you could need, but even the double rooms are TINY, so try to get the biggest room you can or you will be very cramped. I had to place my case on the bedside table. The bathroom is nice, and everything apart from the size is perfect, so if this is not important to you then you will be fine. Be aware that the walls are quite thin though, so if you have noisy neighbours you may hear them. Staff are very friendly and helpful, and the location is excellent -about a minute's walk from the Underground station.

A real disappointment

My wife and I stayed here for six nights during our recent trip to London. We had to move rooms because our first room overlooked for tube tracks which ran until half one in the morning and started again at half five. With trains running every twenty seconds outside and the rumblings being felt throughout the whole room, we were less than impressed. Our second room was at the front of the hotel and was quieter. However, although the room was clean is was so small. The hotel is handy to the tube station and knightsbridge is walkable.

bad experience

We booked the twin bed room but they can only give us a double bed room. The room is very small and the door leading to balcony was broken and only used an iron bar for protection, so we asked to change to a more secured room. They gave us another room which is even smaller, we can jump straight to the bed from the entrance door. Also the room is very dusty. The next night we been changed to a twin bed room which is a bit bigger but still very dirty and dusty. We will NEVER come back to stay in this hotel again.
