Holiday Inn Express London - Earl's Court3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Ended up staying here as the Copthorne Tara was full, to say the two hotels cost pretty much the same, they are worlds apart in quality! This hotel is basic, on arrival our rooms stank of stale air conditioning units and we had to switch rooms, then the air con units beeped all night and woke us up! There is no restaurant but you can eat take away in the bar, we decided to eat out! Breakfast is an eat all you can style buffet which was ok, I don't think we will be staying again though! With a little bit more TLC this could be an ok hotel, just a little tatty round the edges!
I stayed here for a weekend in London for a gig close by and found it to be warm, welcoming and just what I needed. With two tube stations within walking distance, it was easy to get around and back late at night post-gig. The staff were friendly and the breakfast substantial so I would recommend this for anybody wanting to be close to Earls Court or Kensington in general. Would stay again for certain
This hotel is sited away from the main Earl's Court area in easy walking distance (c. 15 minute walk from Earls Court Underground station). Being away from the hustle and bustle makes it somewhere that is quite peaceful and you can be fairly well assured of a good nights rest. On arrival, we received a great welcome from the Reception team to the extent that a personal e-mail contact was given should there be any problems with the check-in, room or hotel - well beyond what one might expect. The facilities are typically Holiday Inn Express - comfortable, well appointed room; clean and well provided en-suite; open lounge and restaurant area - exactly what you would expect. The breakfast is good with something for everyone - Continental foods, full English, fruit, tea, coffee and juices - again, exactly as one might expect. The service was amazing - staff constantly cleaning, replenishing and clearing tables. This is a very good hotel - slightly away the centre of everything but close enough to consider.
We booked this hotel for a nine day stay but shortened it because size of standard rooms is so small with no drawers to put your clothes in. Also the area is not the greatest. The hotel actually has a security guard. Breakfast fare was good compared to US HEX locations. Sorry no cinnamon rolls like US. It's a good hotel if you are planning a few days.
Me and my colleagues stayed here for 3 nights during our work trip. Rooms were of a very good standard, we had parking and the breakfast was decent too. However the main reason we chose to stay was due to the location with it being a short drive from the Olympia. There were a few local shops nearby and a very nice Lebanese restaurant round the corner which was also very convenient.
It had been about 15 months since our last visit to this hotel in west London. We had contacted the hotel in advance asking to arrive around noon, no problem, we even arrived closer to 11.30am. We got the car parked up and popped in to let them know that we had arrived and straight away a room was declared available and ready which we weren't really expecting. The car park is charged at £20 per night still, which is reasonable for London I suppose. The room was a decent size with a sofa bed too, flat screen TV, tea and coffee making facilties etc. The breakfast was reasonable, although somewhat limited in its offering, but good quality food. The staff were all friendly and helpful and so we fully expect to return again sometime next year.
We were a little taken back on arrival as it looked small and potentially a lot of street noise but found a warm and welcoming reception desk. Room was fine, quiet at night and helpful staff. Breakfast was good. Would recommend it as a good place to stay. Easy access to the tube and to London. Next door to The Crepe Factory!
I had to make a last minute reservation in this hotel because the Hilton I had stayed in the night before was fully booked for the following night. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Holiday Inn Express was brighter and cleaner than the Hilton! The lobby was basic but very clean and with many seating areas and tables. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They recommended a great restaurant for dinner that was only a minute walk away from the hotel. The room was clean and comfortable. Again, surprised to say, that the room and bathroom were more comfortable and cleaner than the Hilton! Free hot breakfast including eggs and bacon! The breakfast area had lots of seating options including an area under a nice glass ceiling. The only downside for this hotel is that it's a long walk from the tube station (about 15 - 18min walk which was a lot with luggage) and it was a little hard to find (we turned the wrong way and walked about 15min in the wrong direction). However once we found it everything was great. There are buses very close to the hotel (3 - 5 min walk) so that made up for the long walk from the tube. I would definitely stay here again.
Stayed here for 2 nights in September 2017. Comfortable room with a large double bed. Not much wardrobe space... Just a few open hangers rather than a wardrobe but that isn't a problem unless you're wanting to hang up a week's worth of clothes. Tea/coffee in room etc. Equidistant between West Brompton and West Kensington tubes... About 10 min walk max to either. I didn't go anywhere in the immediate vicinity of the hotel, probably better to socialise in town. Staff I encountered were very pleasant and helpful. Iron/ironing board brought up to the room when I asked for one. Breakfast is quite good, better than I expected for an 'express' hotel. All in all, a really good experience.
PROS: Affordable hotel. Good breakfast included. Rooms are clean. Reception staff friendly. Good quality WiFi included. CONS: A bit far from the center although close to a couple of metro stations (zone 2 though). Rooms have no wardrobe or drawers. No fridge. Just a table and a bed. Rooms are fine unless you want to accommodate four people (two adults, two kids). Four people rooms are just a sofa away from two people ones. Same space. All in all, a good option (price / value) if you are visiting the city with your family.
