            Extremely convenient location and very low price. Front desk people were very very helpful. I asked for a room upgrade at a higher floor and they did their best in no time.

            I think that internet access should be free for customers. Bed matress should be replaced by something more modern.

          • Single

            The location is excellent and it's a good area with several restaurants nearby.

            There was a strong smell of damp in the room and the bathroom was damp and needed a deeper clean. The heating is centrally controlled and as I couldn't turn it on my room was cold. They helpfully brought me a heater and extra blankets. I've stayed at this hotel in the past and been very pleased so I'm not sure what has changed in the interim to make it not as good this time I stayed.

            7.0

            The staff was nice and the location was 5 minutes from Earl's Court Underground. The neighborhood was safe, located near a hospital, stores and transportation lines.

            The rooms were too, too small. The bathroom door could not open fully, hitting the sink. The tv reception was snowy, too few channels. The Internet access should be free. Stop charging guests, charging 12 pounds for 24-hour access or giving 30 mins free w a purchase of coffee.

            Neighbourouds - proximity to the tube

            5.0

            The cappuccino I had in the cafe area was very nice, but to be honest there was not much else to like.

            The bedding we definately didn't like, it was very uncomfortable and looked ragged and old. The tv was flimsy, and the room was very cramped, the shower didn't work properly. I didn't like that I was told that I had to walk five feet to the reception to purchase a breakfast voucher to allow me to have breakfast, which was then immediately taken off me, why couldn't it be charged to my room?

          • Single

            location, pretty clean, attentive cleaning staff

            bathroom door broken, thin walls, needed a new key each day because it ceased to work

            5.4

            It was close to the underground, in a nice neighbourhood.

            It was under constraction. We weren't informed by your website. Internet use very expensive.

          • Single
            5.0

            The room was clean, and the neighbourhood quite good.

            The room was very small, and the walls didn't have any soundproofing effect. One could hear all the brats in the adjacent rooms screaming and blackmailing their parents into giving in to their whims long after midnight. 175 pounds per night is really outrageous for such a room.

          • Single
            6.4

            Pretty decent staff service

            Was charged exorbitantly for wifi and luggage storage. As a hotel, it would be great if these came free of charge.

            Location

            Rude Staff, small room that was hot like a sauna...to leave your bags they wanted 5 quid....best avoid this place is all I can say.

          • Single
            4.2

            It was fairly near where I needed to be.

            The room was small and hot, without proper ventilation. The shower room/toilet was unbearably TINY. The shower room was dirty around the edges, likewise the carpet, there was no chair and the TV remote did not work.I took photographs and complained to the management at the time and intend to complain some more. I had to pay extra for breakfast.

            I was very disappointed with this hotel .I go to london maybe 2 times a year..i will not stay here again. On the positive, the room was clean, nice, fresh and recently refurbished. The room was quite small, downsatirs, not near a lift as I had asked for my mam (with stick)the tv was snowy, the kettle cut out before boiling, my mam found the bed too small, she was afraid to turn in it!! We werent told at check in that breakfast was cheaper to pay/book at booking...so the price went up..never mentioned to us at all by night sdtaff.what infuriated me was after chargng me £89 for first night and then £400 for the second night..when I asked to print out a page I was told the hotel has not printing faciltities. What kind of hotel in 2011 with 3 computers inside their front door that charges 400 for a night..doesnt have printer faciilities? The staff attitiude was too laid back for me..it really wasnt anyones problem that I had to go up the street turn,and cross over to an internet cafe??? Any hostel has a printer..a hotel that charged 400 pounds should have a printer. ....Too much bother for them to

            There is nothing I like about this hotel

            The room is very small, one can not have a proper shower, it is very very small, the televesion is broken, carpet is dirty, towel is small and dirty. The room is very small too.

            the triple room was great for a girls weekend away.

            Booking in took ages the member of staff was very slow

            4.4

            The view from the bedroom window was horrible - an extraction unit that was noisy all night. The bed was a z bed on wheels - not very good. The reception on the tv was really poor with lines going across the screen. The room was generally depressing!
