Oxford Hotel Earl's Court3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Well the room was very tight, we have had this before in Japan, however we know that huge cities have this problem and although you feel you are living in a caravan, it is quite acceptable. The breakfast room was down in the basement in two very unappealing rooms, but the fare was okay. The plus side was the location of the Hotel, very close to Earls Court Station. good restaurants everywhere in Earls Court and the area was where I started travelling in 1962 after leaving NZ on my "overseas experience" so long ago.....I was saying goodbye to the UK & Europe after all those years.
This hotel needs so many improvements to become even halfway decent. I was put in a basement room which was filthy dirty. There were 4 tiny "put you up" type beds in my "single" room with just sheets on a mattress and no headboards. The bathroom stank of damp and rot, the cracked bedroom walls hadn't seen fresh paint in years, the TV didn't work and the door lock didn't work either - not a great safety feature. The room was right next to the breakfast room which made it really noisy and when i wanted to go and eat the tiny room was so full there was nowhere to sit. Reception staff didn't care about anything and just shrugged their shoulders. Horrible place - will not be going there again - don't waste your money.
I'm going to start with the positive. The location is absolutely stunning. Only a minute or two's walk from the tube, less to the shops and local pub. It's also brilliantly priced. However: Our room, rather than consisting of a Double and a Single as listed actually turned out to have 4 Single beds. Not a problem for our group, but slightly annoying it wasn't what I'd booked. It was also on the ground floor, so very dark. It was also next to the Breakfast room so lots of noise very early. There was also no air-conditioning, just an extremely noisy fan. Out of 4 plug sockets, only one worked. Safe didn't work at all and Fridge only worked after a member of our party got up the courage to plug it in, despite the amount of dirt and dust behind the wardrobe. Breakfast was also interesting, as a member of our party is unable to eat Gluten. After finding an egg yolk so gray it could have been one of those putty aliens from 15 years ago, he decided not to bother on the second morning, as jam on cheese didn't sound appetising to him. The choice was pretty poor, and upon asking if they did anything else the staff were unable to even give a response. The en-suite was fine apart from the shower doors not closing fully. With dirty floors and the walls needing a fresh coat of paint, there isn't really a lot right with the Oxford. It's a shame as with the location they have that they don't need to try any harder. Extremely Disappointing.
Ok, so this was the cheapest hotel that I found on a comparison website, which is usually a tell tale sign to avoid... but, this hotel is worth considering. We had a late show at the Royal Albert Hall, and decided to treat ourselves to a place to stay after. We found this place. Check in was uneventful (just as I like it). Staff all seemed to be friends with each other and seemed to enjoy working there. The premises is an old London Town house converted into flats. A very expensive property in a road full of unique hotels. You are in good and safe surroundings. Someone famous used to live in the building and a plaque outside commemorates this (the name fails me right now though). So, it's a big standard hotel. If you're used to The Ritz then maybe avoid this hotel. But if you're looking for a place to get your head down for a night or two, carry on reading. Fixtures and fittings are dated, and everything is on the small side. We didn't have time for breakfast, but some type of breakfast was provided free of charge. Shower was fine. Some amenities were in the room, soap and shower gel. There was a hairdryer, tv, tea and coffee and kettle. There was a nice balcony, but were told not to go onto it for safety issues. The floors were very high. We slept with the balcony door open and didn't hear much noise. Strange for central London. The hotel is within a few minutes walk from Earl's Court station and has lots of big shops nearby. Only ever 15 minutes away from central London. This is a three star hotel, but I've given it it's 4th star because it was so reasonably priced. One tip though- when booking ask not to be in the basement- I noted some trip advisor reviews who weren't impressed with the basement. Have a good trip! @telpage
Great hotel near the tube. We only stayed one night, but we will go there again. Die staff were very polite, like everybody in london! The room Was small but enough. We had a room in the second floor!!
Booked this hotel then went on trip advisor and was filled with horror with some of the reviews. Well we stayed for 2 nights everything was clean perhaps the walls need another coat of emulsion where people have squeezed up the side of the bed but apart from that I was satisfied totally in what amounts to a budget hotel. The breakfast was adequate if not again a little cramped,we used this hotel as a base for sightseeing so was hardly there and so it deserves 3/5.
Very basic but reasonably priced Hotel that is well located for Earls Count and Olympia. A small breakfast room in the basement but still a very good continental breakfast was available. Obviously the Hotel is busy and well used and the General condition reflects this in places. My double room on third floor was pretty small. The bed was too short form me so I slept diagonally and remarkable had a pretty good nights sleep. Bathroom small and signs of water damage to door frame as it's an open shower. Most importantly the room smelt fresh and was clean. The bed linen was clean and fresh. Far too small if two people were sharing. TV and tea making facilities. The staff I was in contact with were very pleasant and I would disagree with some of the negative reviews I have seen levelled at some of them. Overall suitable for my requirements for one night. Plenty of places to eat close by. The hotel has a lift but the entrance is above street level with steps, I did not notice if disabled access was available so if required check first before booking. No parking is available on the site. You need to understand this is a very busy area and a very reasonably priced Hotel so don't book it and then expect a five star Hotel when you arrive and start moaning.
As the title states: the only thing positive with this hotel would have to be location, as it is close to the Earls court underground station. The beds are not good to sleep on, The walls and floors of the hallways are completely water damaged, the breakfast consists of toast and cheese and eggs that are boiled to death (you know- when the yolk goes hard and green on you..?). Neither the safe, nor the fridge in the room worked. You have to pay extra for wifi, and also to use the luggage room. There is no lounging area or restroom for those who arrive befor inchecking time (2 pm).
We arrived to the hotel, where we were told to leave our luggage in the breakfast room. As we went in it was untidy and small. When we came back later to go to our room, we had to go up the road to the other part of the hotel. The room was very limited. Only sheets on the beds, no duvets, so we used the blankets. Only one small towel per person. Very small bathroom, however the shower had a good water pressure. The bedroom, had a broken window, the safe didn't work, there were stains down the wall and several of the plug sockets didn't even work. Overall, had i stayed here for a romantic break i would have asked for my money back. As it was just friends we made do. Would I stay here again, no.
our double room was actually a twin room with two beds joined together, but there was different size!! was on the lower ground floor and firs morning we had people at our window throwing bags of bedding at the window. the walls was wet and full of mould. there was ants in the bathroom. staff was very rude. the room was very cold and was no quilts just a sheet and two blankets. the bin in our room wasn't even empty when we arrived. don;t even know how that can be classed as a hotel.... stayed in better hostels in London
