Great value for money. Fantastic location and friendly staff
Rooms were small and it was very loud but again great value for money
The lady on the front desk was lovely and friendly, each and every time we saw her. The location close to the Piccadilly line at Earls Court and Gloucester Rd was very convenient for the tube and for cafes.
We expected the room to be small but this was much smaller than expected. I've stayed in Tokyo in a single room and this room was smaller than that, for two people! The room was also very hot so we had to have the window open in full the whole time we were in it, and all through the night, just to be bearable. The option to have a portable fan would be appreciated.
Location was great. Close to the tube, close to buses and only a short walk to Kensington Park. Supermarket nearby. Lots of cafes & restaurants nearby. It was clean. Fairly quiet street. Receptionists helpful. We don't do breakfast so can't comment on that
My only niggle was the smallness of the bedroom. The head, side and foot of the bed were all touching walls. My partner had to climb across me to go to the bathroom during the night. However ... we didn't go to London to spend our time in a bedroom so the size wasn't a huge issue. There was a wardrobe but no shelves or drawers so jumpers, t-shirts, socks etc had to go under the bed in the case. But, on reflection, given the price there had to be a snag of some sort
Excellent location close to underground and restaurants.
Rooms were tiny. Hardly any space for luggage.
The hotel is very close to the Earl's Court Underground station, which is surrounded by little shops and eateries (the Paul Bakery is excellent for coffee and breakfast). It is also a short walk to Cromwell Road, making it easy to get to the museums and other South Kensington attractions. The hotel is basic but clean, and the bed was comfortable and had plenty of pillows. We didn't try the breakfast, but it looked good. The front desk staff are super friendly and helpful.
I know a "double" room in the UK is nothing like a double room in the States, but this was the smallest I have ever seen, leaving very little room to do anything other than turn around. Thank goodness the bed sat up high enough for us to slide our luggage beneath, or we would have had nowhere to step! The bathroom was also very tiny. If you need more space, be sure to request a larger room. Ours was basically a closet with a bed. There's also no AC or fan, so it got quite warm at night (we had to shut the window due to street noise).
