St Mark Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Only wanted one night stay, so plumped for cheapest. In this case I got what I paid for. It was quite poor in most respects. The decoration was very cheap looking and tired. I would be quite disappointed if I had booked this hotel for a holiday trip. The staff also seemed to be totally disinterested in their jobs. Would not stay again.

We stayed at this hotel and booked a double room .which was not a double as had a small maybe double and a single in one small room. The room was not the best as bathroom tile was badly cracked and the shower was mouldy , the toilet seat was broken, the towel hook on the back of the door was hanging off. Oh and very flaky paint coming of the ceiling in the bathroom into the shower. The fridge had a microwave on top with the kettle on top of it, which I feel is very unsafe for two reasons. One if it feel off if you knocked the fridge and two water on top of a electric goods. The window frames are rotten and the floor uneven in places. Dirty carpets on the stairs and loads of dust everywhere. Breakfast room way to small as only 7 tables and have to wait till other people have gone. Pics of our room. Also have sent to the hotel and complained but no reply.

Good location Hotel was clean enough. just needs a major over hall and a lift . Lots of damage throughout the building . Prices were good . Breakfast was ok. Staff were lovely if you have any problems with stairs this isnt the hotel for you .

The room for 2 was big enought (with is rare in central London) and clean, the staff helpful, the breakfast ok. Just maybe not for people who have an issue with the noise because the isolation is not so good. For 2 days in London, we were quite satisfied.

Hotel decent enough but there are many areas for improvement. Firstly the rooms are small but okay for what you need, they could do with a revamp to be more modern. There are no signs to state if you would like your room cleaned or not. We returned to our room one afternoon to find they had not shut the door properly. This was very concerning and this is why I would prefer them not to come in, especially for a short stay. The hairdryer was broken and the window was a bit dodgy as it appeared to be coming away from the main bit. Breakfast was not great, very limited choice. Apart from that the location was brilliant and very near the tube but there are nicer hotels on the same road which I would say to look at before booking. Staff were polite.

My room had bed bugs. I woke up with large red welts over arms, legs and torso resulting in seeking medical help. Two men in fumigation gear knocked on our door unannounced, we were not forewarned or advised of any fumigation to our room. Luckily were at the hotel at the time they knocked. Otherwise they could have sprayed the room with toxic chemicals unbeknown to us. Hotel unclean, carpets very stained. On arrival noticed a blood smear on doors at top of stairs to our room. Great location but this hotel does not offer value for money.

Upon arrival was prompted for "cash" payment,we didn't see problem at first until we seen our room! The smell hit us first,and damp.definitely not worth £140 beds stinking,awful night can they justify this as a hotel shouldn't be more than a hostel if that! Breakfast was terrible,toast,eggs & cereal is all that's on offer with music blaring! And owner belching right throughout.

The location is great, right by Earls court tube station and numerous fast food retailers and pubs (if thats your thing). The downside: hotel was shoddy in what is a classy area of london, the stairs are dirty, rooms were small and for what you paid for, a bit of a rip off. The toilet was ok but again small, the door wouldn't lock properly so tips to the toilets were interesting, the sink had a chunk missing and one of the walls in the room had a hole that looked like it was filled with tissue...but for what we wanted which was a bed and a shower, it was OK. Don't expect anything special from this place

Amazing location for getting into and about London. Staff were friendly and kind enough, the rooms are very dated but clean, we were in room 24. We counted 80 steps to the room so avoid if your not fit! 😂 The room was small, had everything we needed, TV, fridge, beds, hairdryer, the toilet and shower were a good size. I would maybe have gave this place 4* if I had paid £60 for 2 nights and not £139 .. the breakfast was, Alpen, corn flakes, toast, cheese, jam and boiled eggs. Nothing to rave about.

The location is good - very short walk to Earls Court Tube Station. The staff were pleasent enough. The hotel didn't appear clean. The carpets on the stairs were disgusting. Room okay but was small and expensive for what you got. Breakfast a joke.
