Great Couples getaway

This hotel is a short tube ride from Heathrow using the Piccadilly line. Get off at Barons Court and its a six minute walk to the hotel. Once in the reception is friendly and very prompt. They take care of your luggage if you are early so you can go explore the vicinity. The neighborhood is very safe. There are plenty of places to eat nearby and Hammersmith station is a tube stop away. When you go to your rooms make sure if you have issues with mobility you request the ground room as they have no lift. We had the third floor edge room and the wifi barely reached there and kept cutting in and out. I'm guessing the wifi router was somewhere in the middle of the hotel as we didnt get very good signal. The rooms were very clean and the new bathrooms are amazing. The shower is good trust me. They have a safe and coffee/tea in the room but no fridge. The complimentary breakfast was very good. Overall I'd have to highly recommend the hotel, our stay was without ANY problems and we stayed for a week. The location is great to go in and out of the city as everything is a short tube ride from barons court.

Okay hotel but rude staff

It was not a very pleasant stay for me. First of all, the heater wasn't working. When we told the staff, they said that they'll check it out and they said there's not a problem with our heater. But our room was always cold. Second of all, the staff here has an attitude problem especially the Indian man working at the night shift. He was very rude and unfriendly to us. Third, the bed linens weren't changed. There were stains on the bedsheets and pen marks on the pillow cases. The shampoo and soap was 2-in-1 so my hair was like grass, had to buy a conditioner. On the bright side, the shower was really nice with strong water pressure. The free breakfast in the morning was really good too. They have cereals, croissants, ham, cheese etc. Although it's the same menu everyday but I'm satisfied with it. The staff in the kitchen is hardworking and the breakfast room is cozy. The hotel is very near to Barons Court station (picaddily & district line) so it's quite convenient.

Try using the Oyster card when travelling with tube. If you use the tube frequently, this will save a lot for you.

Good value but unreliable service

Only booked after having contacted the hotel to ensure that I would get a renovated room, which was fine. The ongoing works of renovation did not disturb me too much, as I was out most of the time. The internet connection was intermittent and did not include good reception from the room, which was a nuisance since the hotel doesn't have a lobby. The receptionist did propose to work in the breakfast room, which is not ideal either, in spite of having plenty of room on that lower ground level. None of this would compensate for the unreliable service I experienced, since the receptionist failed to wake me up at the time requested, only to have somebody (who apparently started his morning shift) to come into my room to wake me up 3 1/2 hours later, which caused me to have missed my flight! When I complained to the manager, he claimed that the receptionist had done his job but the phone was not answered (not surprisingly because it wasn't even connected I found out later) and I didn't respond to the knocking on the door (not surprisingly either, because the room I had included a small hall way with a second door). He explained that only when he had arrived that morning authorization could be given for someone to enter my room to wake me, which they did effectively, but 3 1/2 hours too late. He didn't offer any compensation, in spite of the fact that this was obviously a unforgivable mistake from a management point of view. Hence I will never go back there and wouldn't recommend the hotel to anyone, whether travelling on business or travelling for leisure with an early flight to catch. End of story.
