excellent, clean pleasant hotel, polite and helpful staff. Good decor throughout , especially liked the hotel lounge. Would definately stay again. Resonably priced hotel considering prices in London- and it's clean, NOT dingly or squalid like some lower cost hotels! Very close to Earls court Tube (underground station) so it's handy, near to the late night 'Mediterranean' restaurant which I have frequented for over 25 years (just around the corner) also night club now next door to the Med. My room was small (being a single) but adequate for my needs. Overall a pleasant hotel with good staff and an excellent continental breakfast (which didnt skimp!)

Room Tip: I asked for ground floor, but there IS a lift which is great in a small hotel.

I stayed here 5 nights during 2nd week of October 2011. The staff was most cordial; the location great to Earl's Court Tube Station. Good and varied restaurants nearby. Bus transportation convenient also. I upgraded from a single to a double room. Glad I did because for 5 nights I wanted a bit more space. I had an interior room with no windows, but a delightfully large skylight which opened and also had a shade. I could see the stars! The public "livingroom" was a nice place to take a glass of wine and read or use the computer (for a small fee). There's a hot teapot always at the ready. I was comfortable, the staff was pleasant, the breakfast adequate and the service good. It's in a converted late 1800s townhouse in a neighborhood of similar properties. I stayed one night across the street earlier in my trip and would not go back there. I'd go back to Londontown again! THAT speaks for itself, I think!

The hotel is just 4 mins walk from the tube station (Earl's Court, use Warwick road exit).
The room was fair, and the equipment was correct, with a new TV and phone set.
There is no sound nor thermal insulation, so just pray for the next room to stay quiet during the night...
The bathroom was clean, but very cold as there is no heating and it was December.

The girl at the desk was smiling and very open to provide informations on the city.
The breakfast has a quite low choice of items, but good french croissants.
Breakfast maids were very nice and tried to do her best to please the customers.
There is a computer in the lounge for the hosts, but its use is not free.
Lots of hotels in the same quiet street.

Hotel located only few minutes walk from Earl's Court station. Restaurants, supermarkets, Starbucks, fast food and bars nearby. Quiet Area and friendly staff. Room was very small with small bed but clean. Shower was too small and was difficult to move around, and i weigh only 150 lbs. Other than the size of the shower, it's an average budget hotel.

The location close to Earl's Court underground is perfect. The area is quiet and nice, and the staff is friendly. The rooms were clean (but you can hear your neighbour breathe), and we were offered free internet access. However, there is a few negative things, such as the size of the bed, which is at least ten centimeters too short. The bathroom is far too small, and you have to place the soap and shampoo on the floor when you take a shower. The water pressure was too low. Breakfast is only served between 07.30 and 09.00. The wake up-calls are done by the receptionist, who personally calls your room. If he or she forgets to call you or is too late, you might have a problem. We stayed in this hotel for five days, and the wake up-call was too late one of the days and was forgotten one day, and we missed breakfast.

Room Tip: Choose a room towards the backyard, because there is a lot of traffic noise from the main road.

You don't have much to complaint, it is just like anounced on internet.Perhaps the water pressure on bathrooms could be better, as it is very low. Breakfast it's simple but effective for the beggining of the day. Cleanless is on your eyes. This is a good hotel for London prices.Location it's also a positive mark. And staff is very friendly. I may repeat the experience.
