Although parking facilities are nearby, there are heavy fines for drivers who forget to pay new tolls for driving into central London. Traffic is difficult even for the seasoned driver. Best bet: taxis or the Underground

Uncomfortable & Overpriced

This hotel is extremely basic and harks back to a time that should now be forgotten. The room, which was a triple!, was extremely cramped and untidy. The décor and fittings would have been more in place in an abandoned, derelict building. There were two beds taking up most of the space, no chairs, tables or any other furniture. We tried to sleep in the very small (3/4 size) 'double' bed but it was very cramped and uncomfortable and we did not get a good nights sleep. The shower and toilet, like the rest of the room and hotel, looked well past it's 'sell by date' and we were extremely pleased that we were not staying any longer than the one night. Breakfast was average but no proper juice, just cheap dilute orange, the coffee was awful and none of the crockery matched. The staff, who were very friendly kept on offering us cheese, meats, fruits etc. but everything was shrink wrapped on a dish and did not have very much appeal to us. The way the breakfast room looked, the shrink wrapped food and fruit could have been stored there for weeks? The cost of this one night at this very inadequate hotel was way above and beyond what you would expect to pay for this kind of experience, even if the place had been clean and well decorated. Apart from the staff being very friendly there is nothing else positive to say about this hotel.

wouldnt stay again

We chose this hotel as it was close to earls court. The first impression was not good as walking in to the hotel there were people sat lining the stairs on computers reminding me of a backpackers hotel. The room was small and even though I had requested a twin room we got a double bed which one side of was pushed up against the wall, the bed was also hard. The furniture was old a the decor was shabby. The bathroom room had no handle on the inside so didnt shut properly. Breakfast was a strange experience with staff that dont speak english and an odd combination of food such as being given doughnuts with our fried eggs. Plenty of fruit available though.
