Strange check in where we were asked for passports... we are uk nationals and travelled by train from Cambridgeshire. They weren't to happy about that but needless to say allowed us to stay. The room is tiny. Bed and small cabinet with kettle on. No chairs to sit on. Bed against wall and window overlooking the over ground train line, so very noisy. Bedding was clean. Bathroom was a good size but poorly fitted out. Shower was either scalding or off. Positives.... location. We would not stay here again.

If a mattress like concrete, a shower with two settings (scalding hot or ice cold) and a truly claustrophobic room is what you're after, look no further. The previous reviews speak for themselves. Despite this, the location to the underground and surrounding areas was great. The staff were friendly and polite, too.

Stayed here at the end of April 17. Worst hotel I have ever stayed in, bugs in bed, window could not close as it was warped, huge gap at top, mouse trap under the bed and no fire escape. We removed four bugs from the bed when we returned after midnight and reception was closed. Complained in the morning and were given another room down the old iron steps outside, but it was clean and bug free. Complained to also and it was agreed that we would get a refund for the first night, well surprise surprise, still no refund even though I have emailed both the hotel and almost every day. They then said they did a refund and sent me a copy of the refund receipt but refunded to the wrong account. NEVER again.

After the first night I left. First of all I can not live with the mouses (we are in 21 Century). It was in the room, at he reception MOUSE TRAP. The small is horrible, no clean, the carpet full of Shiite. The furniture broken, old and so used. mucus on the wall, believe this HOTEL SHOULD NOT FUNCTION IT SHOULD BE CLOSED!!!!! Hey Authority from London, with this kind of hotel, we, the tourists, are in real danger, to go home with diseases. they don t have AIR CONDITIONING, I could not sleep because was so warm, am with the window open it was to much noise. SO DON"T MAKE THE MISTAKE TO BOOK THIS HOTEL IT WILL BROKE YOUR VACATION FOR SURE>

2 positives staff friendly and location negatives if you get room 101 refuse it as no space to swing a cat trains every 5 minutes and to top that they started rail replacement work and the windows do not shut out the noise. No air con so hottest weekend of the year had to have window open. Pillows what pillows better off bringing ur own unless you enjoy resting ur head on the mattress.

Terrible. Read the reviews below, they are true. Arrived at night due to the flight delay just to find out the hotel was closed and you must go to another hotel to get your access. At 3 am and and with your luggage. The internet is poor, the reception doesn't care. Avoid it.

I stayed at Earls Court Gardens this past week for 6 nights. First the positive; the front desk staff were very nice and helpful. The location was very convenient to the tube and central London. That's all the positive unfortunately. The room was spacious but was awful. Bed was very lumpy and uncomfortable. I was on the top floor so it was a thousand degrees. The tube line was outside my window so it was very loud. On my last evening, they did tube construction all night so I didn't sleep at all. The water temperature in the shower was impossible to control. I could hear all the people in the neighbouring rooms. The room needs a minimum of a coat of paint, some sort of artwork, and perhaps some new curtains. The entire hotel was in rough shape. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Sorry.

51 steps up to a dirty, Noisey[even with windows shut] room, Dirty Shower which was hard to use and had a broken plug,happy woman at desk and that is the only good thing to say about it, I would never go again even if it was free

If you like trains going by every five minutes, this place is for you. If you like hitting the bed as you open the door, this place is for you. If you don't have any need for space or room of any kind except for a cheesy door that may keep others out, but you like to hear their conversations and other activity, this place is for you. Minus five stars. For what you pay at this place, you can get a decent room elsewhere. Clue, they will provide pictures of the room. Another clue, if the room doesn't have a fridge, don't bother. That tells you what the rest of the amenities are going to be. If you just need a room long enough to do the Deal with your temporary boyfriend, this is the place for you. Obviously wouldn't recommend it. Sleep in the streets.

I was there a couple of years ago and now Im seeing that People today are having the same issues I had with this place "I cant call it Hotel cause it really isnt. Seems like they made a Little of renovation but still same problems, dirty as hell, bad shape old bed, the hell damn noise from the Train rails is unbearable. Pictures that you see here from 2014 are the same as I had back then, now seems like the renewed something but still and awfall place.
