Maranton House Hotel

Recent guest reviews

Arrived and they had no AC or lift. We were offered a fan and had to put it together first. We were given a room in the basement for 3 days. They said they were sold out but they weren’t. Was awful. Missing tiles on the floor in the bathroom. Carpet on the stairway was lifting, torn and dirty. WIFI didn’t work so I asked how to call another room. They said you can’t we downgraded our service. Said 24 hr front desk. No one was there after 11pm. Would definitely not recommend this hotel to anyone. This was our last stop of a 10 country tour and it was the worst hotel we had and the price way higher than the others.. One positive. Staff was courteous.

Location is great. I didn't try breakfast, as I heard  it is "basic"  and was my only one in London. My advice is: make sure what kind of room you are given. I had learned from other guests' reviews that some rooms had been renovated an some not: as I'm not fussy, I didn't mind. I was asked to pay while checking in, before going in the room. As I did, I wouldn't have minded the worn out armchair, the stained moquette and curtain - but the towel heater in the bathroom was almost COMPLETELY covered in rust. I decided to complain. I showed it to de desk employee and there was an unpleasant conversation: shortly, he said he couln't do anything for me. So I left for the afternoon; as I came back in the evening, he said he could move me to another room. This was something completely different and definitely worth the money - as it simply should be.

Great hotel great service a must stay when in London !great location, unbelievable service you will not be disappointed the rooms are superb and the friendly service will keep you coming back ! Tell they Jeff sent ya

Another hotel with lousy wifi. A small investment would make a world of difference to their guests. Nice little hotel. Accommodations are basic but larger rooms and bathrooms than some other London hotels I've stayed in. Location is great though. The Earl's Court tube station is a couple blocks away and good eating options and grocery stores nearby.

We had such a wonderful trip, but this hotel really tarnished it. I was expecting a small room, so that was not really an issue, it was the overall lack of cleanliness I couldn't look passed. The rooms are falling apart. The filthy cloth headboard isn't even attached to the bed or wall (which is just as well. I couldn't stand the thought of whatever those stains were being so close to my head. Broken and old junk are littering the rooms...just throw it away! The power blew out and the plumbing was broken when we checked into our room. It took them 3 days to get to fixing it and check us into another room. So I had to explore ice cold London with wet hair and use the hallway WC. The lady at the desk was severely unfriendly. We were getting too nervous to say good morning to her when we passed her (that glare!). I went outside whenever my fiance needed to ask her a question or for some advice or directions, she was that intimidating! I do have to give Maranton House 2 stars for the location though. It is right next to the tube station on a quiet, pleasant street. Plus, it is steps away from our favorite pub (which we enjoyed several times during our trip), the Blackbird. We did take something from this experience. That is to save a little extra to spring for nicer, cleaner accommodations. What little extra money we saved really wasn't worth it in the end.

My mum and I stayed here for 4 days, host and staff are amazing, friendly and very helpful. Location is extremely safe and alot of shops and restaurants are very close. Train station is very close too. The wind caused a knock on our door one day and we were too afraid to check it ourselves and the staff came and checked it out for us. Rooms are a bit old but nothing major. This was a very good experience for us.

This is a convenient hotel with a nice welcoming lobby and friendly staff. Unfortunately our room was very dated and could really do with some TLC. The bed and bathroom were clean enough and we had fresh clean towels and soap and shower gel provided. The bed was comfy and clean but the furniture although functional pretty old fashioned. The biggest let down was the really grubby I’ll fitting carpet which has seen better days alongside the curtains which we could draw properly as they were in quite a sorry state and unhooked from a very high rail! It’s ok for a couple of nights but for long stays, sadly would suggest looking elsewhere?

Booked the hotel for one night for the Marathon. It is only a short walk from Earls Court tube. Our room was at the front and had a great view over the square. The hotel is very basic and has no lift. Our en-suite room was quite small but was clean, although an old-fashioned lock and key system is not very secure. There was a small balcony which is shared with the adjacent room. In the Summer the room would be too hot as there is only a small fan for ventilation. If you open the balcony door then you have some noise from traffic and passers-by. For £90 the hotel was good value for our brief stay.

Location perfect for easy access around London. We booked a Superior Twin Room - Room 2 which met basic needs at best. The bathroom was of a poor standard...uninvested..scalding shower which couldn’t be turned down. Scum blocked the floor drainage. Grout was mouldy. The bedroom was of a much better standard, clean and tidy. The hotel is a mix of modern and dated decor. Other residents could be easily heard late at night. We paid an inflated price probably because of the Marathon and it didn’t even include Breakfast. Staff were kind and helpful

Spending just one night in London this was the perfect hotel and reasonably priced. The rooms where very comfortable although the HEATING NEEDS TO BE TURNED DOWN as it really was so so hot! My companions struggled to sleep but luckily with the help of the in room fan I managed to get some. This is reasonably priced and basic, the bathrooms are really shabby in the room that I stayed in on the first floor, although my friends room on the ground floor was alot nicer and was recently renovated. All in all a good stay for the one night, wouldnt book for more than one night though!
