First off the place looks nothing like the photos. Upon arriving in the neighborhood I saw several "dealings" in very close proximity to the hotel. Some of the people who live in this place saw me arrive and cursed me and spit in my direction. The place is a dump. I was told I was going to be in the basement. The room was filthy, the bed looked older than time. When I told the girl at the counter I refused to stay in this place she said "oh well, you get no refunds." They have ZERO parking as well and I got a ticket in the 10 mins I was inside. Avoid this place at all costs. This ruined my entire trip. The company refused to help me recoup any of my loses as well. They told me basically that there would be no refunds even though I would not stay there.
The hotel is located super close to the Earl's Court tube station, which has lines that run directly to some of the city's biggest tourist locations (Westminster, Big Ben, London Tower, Heathrow Airport). It is also in a neighborhood that has plenty of restaurants, bars, etc. The price can't be beat. If you don't mind a very basic, very small place to sleep and store your bags, this is a fine option. As for amenities, I was actually surprised when I had fresh towels and my bed was made after my first night there; it didn't feel like a place that had "during-your-stay" maid service because it was that basic (ie, no shampoo or conditioner, just a little bitty circle of soap and towels that felt like they'd been washed 3000 times).... Another downside was they ask you to leave your room key at the front desk each time you leave the premises; wasn't too excited about that. And the room's "lock" was nothing more than what a common US house has on a bathroom door - just the little pushbutton, so not the best security, though I never felt unsafe. Pros are that it was very, very easy to get to the stuff I wanted to see, and I didn't have to waste money on a fancy room that would sit empty all day.
location is very good. Helpfull staff. Room is very small, and noise sensitive. Bed is clean.
Small тв convinient hotel near undeground station Earls Court. Working WIFI. Clean. Very helpful staff. In walking distance from easybus airport bus stops
For an pretty low rate, even by non-London standards, we got an adequate place to sleep, in a very convenient location, with a staff that was helpful and responsive. But, as you might expect, the room was small, there wasn't enough space to do anything but sleep (no place to sit, etc.), and there with issues with a running toilet and flickering lights. But, bottom line, for the money, I'ld stay there again.
The staff was very helpful, but this is not the hotel for those looking for a place to spend a good deal of time in their room. The place is obviously aging, and it's in a very dense urban setting, with everything that goes with it. The room is very small, but a good sized bathroom (by UK standards) and everything worked, except my window which I couldn't close all the way. Overall, a good value, and I'll likely stay here again for business, but N.American visitors should expect a very tight fit in the room itself, it's just big enough for the bed, and that's just the way it is.
