I did the booking for this accommodation by Booking.pt and the reviews were not bad at all, but after I saw the comments here in tripadvisor, I started to be REALLY afraid of the place (I already knew that London doesn't have good and clean places only if you want to spend a fortune, I'm comparing with accommodations in Portugal, Spain or even France or Germany). The photos that I saw were some quite socking for me, and so I was until the last second (when I get into the hotel and room) afraid with the conditions of the place. I must tell that I had a good surprise when I get into the room..uf..it was an good relief. The room has good internet wifi signal, it was clean and warm. Toilet has towels, shower gel, hot water and it seemed clean either. There is a tv and a kettle with tea sacs if you want to use. The pillows were to soft but I like that, the mattress was to soft and so could be not good for everyone's back. The "food" was still under the bed, as I saw in previous photos. Only problem, it was some water was leaking to the floor below us, but no water was in our floor during the shower, so we didn't know what happened. The underground station is 5min walking, and bakeries and pubs are near too (5min. walking).
The hotel was clean and the reception lady was friendly, and its a very good location, very short walk to the main street and good for trnasport links................however the room was very small, the bed's mattress was far too soft, and the pillows were flat, and when I asked for another pillow I was advised they had none to spare, but this was not the worst............. the worst was the room I had been given backed RIGHT ONTO the tube line! which rumbled past every 2-3 mins or so all bloody night, so I had no sleep as the windows even though closed did not drown out any of the noise, and another factor was we had no control over the room temperature so it was boiling hot, yet we could not open the windows as if we had off we may as well have just slept right on the track lines of the tube!!!!!!!!! Luckily this was only for 1 night and it was a very last minute booking, I would 100% not stay here again!
DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL! I booked two triple rooms for one night, one in the basement and one on the ground floor, one for my sister, her partner and my 9year old nephew and one for myself and 13year old nephew. After a restless nights sleep, we met up the next morning and my sister said they had heard rustling noises in their room coming from their bin and when they put the light could see nothing. And also a scratching sound on their carpet, but couldn't see anything. After they had gone home I moved into a single room that I had previously booked for a further two nights. This room was on the second floor. During the night I heard a strange rustling sound and scratching on the carpet. I put the light on and saw nothing. After a few minutes of turning the light off I saw a small shadow move from under the room door so put the light on. And had a good look around the room, under the bed was an open rentokill bait tray which any child could have got to and eaten. So there is obviously some sort of problem here. I lay in the bed with the light on and kept watching and listening. And after a mitnute or so a MOUSE scurried from somehwere in the room out and away under the room door. This was at 06.48 so the hotel can check the cctv which was aimed directly above the entrance to the room door. I checked out a day early as soon as reception was open and filled in a complaint form asking for a full refund of the complete stay which I've not recieved yet and found another hotel. They are very reluctant to make any sort of decision on a refund. This hotel is disgusting and obviously have an issue with MICE. DON'T STAY HERE Especially if you have children that could so easily get to the uncovered rodent bait trays. Please see photo I took from under the bed.
Very handy for travelling to the city centre. Helpful staff. A little bit loud for the tube. Quite cheap. Rooms cleaned and comfortable. A little bit late for the check-in time. Earl's court is a very nice area for staying.

Disgusting place and found a mouse in the room!couldnt complain as the staff had gone home for the day so a sleepless night it is!also the walls are paper thin and we could hear next doors music word perfectly and the metro trains were loud.AVOID AVOID AVOID
Went to check in after a theatre visit so late on around 11.30pm. First impressions poor as the front door area was in very poor condition having obviously forced open on occasions. Met by a girl who was clearly trying her best but could not get credit card machine to work so requested we walked to a sister hotel some streets away to pay. We said we wanted to see the room as by this time it didn't promise to be great. The room had a double bed which was sandwiched in and you could only get into it by climbing from the bottom. Walls paper thin - we could hear the couple next door clearly though they were not being loud. No room for bags. En suite not clean and barely fit for purpose. The smell was awful. The one piece of furniture to house the kettle was a tiny broken chest. I couldn't get out of the place quick enough. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE
We came to London to visit the Royal Albert Hall, and so wanted a fairly cheap place stay nearby. This hotel was perfect for that - somewhere to leave our bags, and a comfy bed to sleep in. It was quite a small room, but had everything we needed. The bathroom was pretty new, with an excellent shower. You could hear the tube nearby when the window was open, but it was fairly unnoticeable when we closed it. Short walk from the Royal Albert Hall, and near Earls Court tube station. Overall a handy place for our trip.
I never complain about hotels and have stayed in some rather not great budget hotel but this was too awful not to review. First off, no wifi beyond the first floor, very inconvenient as I needed to check into my flight, get directions, etc. Second, terrible sewage smell coming from bathroom. Closed the door to keep it out of room but didn't help much. Third, no hot water at all. Left shower running to see if it would warm up, after 15 mins it did not and leaky shower head had sprayed all over room and only 2 towels (no hand towels or shower mat to clean it up). Fourth, terrible sunken mattress, unless you enjoy sleeping on top of your friend/partner/whoever you are staying with.. It was super cheap, yes, but honestly, save yourself the headache, spend the extra 20 pounds or so and stay somewhere else. I was there just to sleep and I don't look for much from budget hotels but this was really terrible.
I was very nervous to stay for 3 nights based on previous reviews but in fact the room was perfectly fine. Yes its very small and the mattress was too big for the bedframe, and it was a pretty lumpy mattress. But for the price, and the location I had no complaints. Newly fitted ensuite was nice and clean, water nice and hot. Pleasantly suprised that we had the bed made up and the coffee topped up each day. Staff were friendly on arrival too. No noise from other guests, but the train lines are right outside and are frequent 24/7. Take earplugs if you struggle to sleep. Main door is locked after 22:30 so secure pin needed to get back in so your belongings are nice and safe. The hotel does look a mess from outside as the rest of the street is so smart, a lick of paint outside and in the hallway would boost its appeal. Will definitely be staying again. Also, good pub at the end of the road.
