Below average hotel..

Really not what we were expecting from the photos! The bedside lamp nearly caught fire from all the dust that was still on it. There was nothing when booking that advised how loud the trains would be through the night. There was one friendly woman on the reception team when we asked for the lamp to be changed and the gentleman that checked us out was also very nice, however the rest of staff were very disinterested. Advantage was how close to the tube station this hotel is although I wouldn't stay here again.

Not as expected

Staff were lovely however the hotel standard was not as expected. Decor was nothing like the photos, rooms were cramped with ill-fitting furniture and Strange lighting system with the switches! Bulbs missing in a lot. First room was not great at all but we were changed immediately when complained. It just felt a little miserable in the rooms to be honest! We won't be returning to this hotel.

Pros & cons

The location of the hotel is very good, only a few minutes walk from Earl's Court underground station. The room was clean in general, although you could find some dirty spots if you looked more closely (I also found some hairs inside two of the towels). The staff was helpful overall, except to one lady at the reception that was a bit curt and also deliberately sent me 3 stops away from my destination when asked for directions. Lastly, wifi is available only at the reception.

Petit

Very clean and staff very efficient. The only minus was the extraordinarily small rooms. I still don't understand why they took £30 payment on check in, as there is no bar and you don't get it back for 3 days??? Tip- If booking it ask for a room at the front.

Good Location, Good Price

It is an excellent value for your money: the hotel is locacted in a very nice neighbourhood, very close to the underground station that connects to the main touristic lines (such as Picadilly). The hotel room had been renovated - altough it is impressivelly small, the bathroom is new, and the room has a flat tv and nice lining bed and towels. I would stay again.

Small but well thought out accommodation

We stayed for one night - the room was very small but it was more than adequate for our needs - great location for the tube - we would return for another short break in London.

Not the best

Fine location but very small rooms, tired decor and not very clean. Our first room had a plumbing problem so smelt awful however staff managed to move us relatively soon. Rooms are very small and very simple. Not the cleanest but Fine for a simple 1 night stay if you're not looking for any luxuries

good service

Good location, helpful staff, friendly cleaning staff, in generally good service. Unfortunately offered a room with not working air-conditioner at the beginning (it was a hot day 32C in London), but with one word, swapped with a nicer room immediately. Telephone, computer, wifi, bus... all requests were fulfilled. Hotel wi-fi is available at the reception, but not in the room.

nice location, tiny room

Location is fantastic, close to station ans in a beautiful area. However WiFi was down for full duration of our trip. Smallest room we have ever stayed in and we have travelled loads. Was not even space to fit bags next to bed, and only one person could stand at a time

Boite a sardine

J'étais très deçu, ma chambre 106 extrêmement petit, j'arrivais à peine a me mettre au lit, et je ne suis pas très grande! Beaucoup de bruit. Pas de Wifi au chambre, seulement a la reception qui était aussi assez petit. Les gens de l'hôtel tres serviables, mais les installations laissent beaucoup a desirer. J'ai demandé de changer de chambre ce qu'on fait, pour une beaucuop mieux, mais ça reste comme même le souvenir de la première et je n'aimerais retourner là bas. La seule avantage c'était l'emplacement. Domage
