The rooms in the hotel were fairly basic but given the location we were in for the Royal Albert Hall this one is a winner. Room was functional with all the stuff we needed for an overnight stay. There was a bit traffic overnight but its London so thats a given anywhere really. Would definately stay again if i needed...

First of all, not as bad as many would suggest, you get what you pay. The hotel façade is almost frightening, there's no denying it, it could do with some maintenance. Walking from earl's court tube station you see nice white georgian town houses and the sudden view of the hotel is undoubtely shocking. However, once inside the room, I...

This is a VERY basic 'hotel'. The room was cramped and the fittings shabby. there were loose wires and plug sockets. The shower drain was totally blocked and resulted in black water flooding the room. Very difficult to contact the hotel , to get the problem resolved. I would not recommend this hotel.

Had to get this as a last-minute hotel, think i would have preferred camping on the street. check in is an absurd 3PM, though they let me in my room early as it was "ready". furniture looked like it was put together by a blind guy, bottom drawer was missing, no TV. when i went to shower, the soap tray...

Me and my wife stayed here for 3 nights. The room was small and sins it was hot we had to keep the windows open. The noise from the trafic was loud. But it was a perfectly sitsuaded. Not fare from the tube. The staff was friendly. It was cheap. Perfect for a budget holiday.

Upon viewing it from outside I thought why didn't we check this on trip advisor before we booked! Hotel looks very dreary from outside and is matched inside. Very busy 3 lane one way street right outside the front. The room was dark, grotty and small. The matttress was tired but at least the sheets were clean. Only 2 very...

Checked into this hotel for a one night stay having low expectations, but didnt pay a lot and it was close to Hyde Park where we were going to a concert. Arrived at 10am, room not ready until 2 but we were told we could leave our bags so this was fine. On the approach to this hotel our heart...

I don’t know where to begin… 3 star hotel? Yeah right! Max – 2. Staff not so helpful, main reason is because they hardly could speak any English, which was odd since it is London, England… Room was small, bed uncomfortable, furniture – old. Free Wi-Fi is only in the hall, - it doesn’t get further than that. And that’s...

The hotel was nothing like as advertised on Booking.com. Firstly 3 flights of stairs NO LIFT, and when advised of health issues they appear not to be interested. Room booked for 3 people was very cramped, and there was not enough hanging space. There was no toaster available, and the only good thing I can say is that it was...
