My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights. Check in was ok, but, only one room key, which is a pain if you want to go out separately as the the room key operates the room lighting. But strangely, our room was down the road from the hotel lobby. So breakfast in one building, room in another 😕 The room itself was clean, but small. Kettle, tea, coffee, safe, tv and hairdryer were provided. There is a £10 surcharge, per stay, for wifi. The room we had was lower ground floor. There was a window, with rooms across from it, but you couldn't tell what the weather was like from down in the depths. The bathroom was tiny. Put it this way, you'll have a job showering together unless you're both very small 😉 Breakfast was cramped. Small tables, not a lot of room, 2 rooms, one larger than the other. Continental breakfast (almost), there were no cold meats. Tea, coffee, fruit juice, toast, rolls, cereal, cheese, hard boiled eggs. The waiting staff were very good at keeping it clear, clean and tidy in cramped conditions. By far the best part of this hotel was it's location. 2 minute walk from Earl's Court tube. Bonus.

Without doubt the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The only positive was the location of the property which was a 2 min walk from Earl's Court underground. Reception staff and all other staff I came across were unwelcoming. Was a tiny room that was unbearably hot and with what seemed to be electrical issues. Tv kept switching itself on and off and it was very loud in the room. Possibly one of the worst nights sleep I have ever had. Decor of the room was old and needs updating and beds were meerly camp beds at best. The shower also kept changing in temperature while I was in it. The fact they charge for wifi and luggage storage was also a joke although he did let me store my rucksack for free. If you do stay don't bother with breakfast.If continental means non existent that is pretty much what we had. Toast, rubber cheese and cornflakes. Although I didn't pay 'much' for this considering the location and the Summer hols I don't think it is too much to ask for a standard level of cleanliness from a hotel. Would never recommend this place to my worst enemy. Avoid people. Maybe try one of the hotels on the same road.

This was the worst hotel ever. We dropped our bags and went straight to the stadium and didn't return til 11.30pm. We only got to have a good look at the room the next day. The room was tiny, we booked triple room, damp, full of mould, paint peeling off and a smell. It was really disgusting. This is the first time I have ever written a bad review, it really was terrible. The pictures say it all.

The hotel has the smallest board on the street and hardly can be recognised.the only place that looks swanky in the hotel is its reception. Pros Neat and clean Microwave Refrigerator Minimum cutlery Good reasonable spread for breakfast Good staff (helpful and polite) Metro is a few minutes walk( 4 minutes ) Cons The hotel has 4 floors.. make sure you request a room on the 2nd or 3rd.there is no lift and the staircase is narrow.you will end up having a bad time dragging your luggage all the way up. The room is small but okay The bathroom I should say is miniature size to be exact it is 5 feet x 4feet. There is no Aircon or a ceiling fan, just a small table fan.

Terrible hotel. Miniscule rooms with no room to move about, bathroom is more like a cupboard, staff is indifferent, overall run down and filthy. I knew I chose economical, when I picked this hotel, but did not expect the standard we found. Pictures on website are recognizable but in no way representable.

Don't ever book this hotel. After witnessing a fight with the most obscene language and threatening behavior between a guest and the person on reception. We we told go down the road to our room. Our room was hot and so small it was not big enough for 1 person let alone 3. The shower door was broken the shower tap was broken held together by a piece of rolled up toilet paper. The room was dirty. The beds were camp beds. We didn't even unpack our bags and when we informed the person on reception that the room was unacceptable - his attitude was if you don't like it don't stay. So we didn't. Be warned people this is not the place to stay. Wish we took photos but we were just so disgusted we had to get out of there.

Where to start... Arrived at 10am (check-in was 2pm) so asked if we could leave our case while we explored London for the day. Told to go to breakfast room on ground floor which was basically a room with tables, an ironing board and a hoover. Not exactly secure to leave your luggage. Arrived to get the room key at 4pm where we were told to go down the road slightly which was no problem. Got the lift to the first floor, entered the room and my heart sunk. Romantic getaway looked more like a crack den. Dirty walls, two camping beds pushed together, floor had rubbish on it, and windows we couldn't see out of due to the amount of dirt. The highlight of the room was the bathroom door which had clearly been punched so hard a hole was left. The hotel had tried to cover this hole with a sheet of what looked like plastic that looked like wood (despite it being a different colour). Which obviously had also been punched! We only agreed to pay because of the location, if we had been there more than one night we'd of caused a stir. Never again! If anyone needs proof, I took multiple photos of this disgusting establishment!

Basement room with bars at the window, towels fit for a dogs home, stained and worn, furnishings fit for the skip. Drops of urine on the toilet seat, and dirty walls. Only on check out did I dare to remove the bed linen, pillows sweat stained and mattress...discusting. Not meeting standards of 3 star hotel. Health and safety issue as wooden pallets stored out side the barred bedroom window and majority of fire doors wedged open. Could not switch of light in shower room and bedroom door would not lock from the inside. Noisy staff shouting early hours of the morning waking us, so no lie in but then you heard everyone else flushing their toilets anyway. Reception staff unfriendly, no smiles, or welcome. Having to pay on check in prior to viewing the room and then seeing the rooms and not wanting to stay we were told we would be charged anyway as we should have cancelled 72 hours before.... Good location advertised as 3 star, all rooms should fit this, (our room was not worth 1 star...) no matter what price you pay.

There were four in our group. Two couples. Our friend arranged for this hotel. I try to check reviews first before booking. We arrived at the hotel to a man behind the counter who never greeted us. He just as soon spit on us. We paid for the room and he told us where it was. There was a £10 fee for wireless internet. Our room was away from our friends. No problem. We were given a room in another building which happened to be in the basement. My heart sank. I felt like we were in a dungeon. It could not have been more than 8x8 square feet total. The headboard appeared to have been worn out from God only knows who may have been scratching at it from a long night, if you know what I mean. Our friend was furious. He demanded another room for us. They complied and we were on the 3rd floor in another room that may have been 9x9 this time? I am not kidding. There were no hooks to hang anything. There was a small open box that had hangers in it. A small fridge which was not very cold. A similar headboard with scratches all though not as bad as the dungeon, I mean basement. No air conditioning which were okay with as we opened the windows and turned the wall fan on, which was covered in dust and dirt. A college kid would have better accommodations. The bathroom door which was literally 1 1/2 foot from the bed itself was quite hard to open and close. No towel hooks in the bath. The place was a dump. They offered a "continental" breakfast in the morning, which we did on the first morning after. I could not believe it. It was located in the basement of the hotel and when I tell you that there was hardly any room to move around in, I am not joking. Coffee, juice and milk were on hand. The coffee was actually pretty good. Cereal, hard boiled eggs and toast were the choices. People having to squeeze in and out of the two small rooms offered was ridiculous. The hotel self appointed themselves as a 3 star hotel. That is a JOKE! What was so interesting about the whole experience is that they had no problem renting rooms; like us! They did not seem to have a worry in the world. People were checking in and checking out, just like any other hotel. Our friends room the first night was located again, in the other building too, but on the ground floor next to the main door. That door was opened and closed practically all night long. They got no sleep. They were then moved to the same building as us and seemed to be better. One or two positive notes that I should make is, they did come into the room at some point each day and remade the bed and gave fresh towels, albeit thin and rough. The tube is right around the corner form the hotel which made it very convenient for us to go from place to place. Speaking of which, buy an Oyster card if traveling via the tube. There are station managers located within the facility of the station that can assist with questions and purchasing. Please don't get me wrong. I am no snob. I just work hard for my money and when I go on vacation, I want to enjoy the entire experience. It makes more more appreciative of the hotels we have here in the U.S. Lesson learned. Next trip, we'll make a point to either book the hotels ourselves or definitely read the reviews if our friends make arrangements.

Our room was in the annex which is a separate building a short walk down the road. There is no reception in this block. There was a TV but no remote control. No duvet, just a sheet. No teabags. Got up hoping to have a nice shower but the shower didn't work and there was no bath plug so couldn't even have a bath. Breakfast was served in two very clostraphobic basement rooms by very unhelpful staff. On departure told them that the shower was broken but they weren't bothered so I'm guessing that it's not been working for some time! Has to be the worst hotel we've stayed in.
