“Average Budget Hotel, Good Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2012

If you're going to be using the tube a lot this is a good hotel, it is a two minute walk to the station and there's quite a few shops and fast food places (kfc, mcdonalds, subway) great for late nights after a day of sight seeing to be able to grab something and take to the room. The room was great, fridge, bed, tv, bathroom, the usual, the one fault I had was my room (ground floor directly next to the reception) had a broken lock, we we're told on the first day 'the lock is broken but will be fixed by tomorrow' as he had to let us into our room, but we spent the rest of our time there having to be let into our room. Especially annoying to my boyfriend, as a smoker he was in and out quite a lot and each time had to be let into the room by some one behind the desk. This was extremely annoying, other than that hotel was fine.

Stayed here over the weekend in a family room with our three children aged 7, 5 and 7months. The room, sold to us as a family friendly room Venere.com, was down several small and awkward steps, forcing us to hitch up, carry and generally man-handle the buggy and all our bags in and out of the hotel. When we arrived there was a black bag of rubbish, a bag of dirty towels and linens and a vacuum cleaner (still plugged in the socket switched on and cables strewn across the floor) left in the narrow corridor.
In our room was a double bed, two singles and loads of black mould. The room smelt damp, carpet was damp to the touch and the bedding damp. I'm only grateful that I declined a cot and had baby sleep close in bed with me.
The worst thing was that there was black mould on the ceiling, across the skirting boards and up and across the window. The walls felt cold and damp and so we moved the bed our daughter (5) was sleeping in away from the wall, there was no surprise in finding mould all across the bottom of the wall.
I'll say that again - there was BLACK MOULD AROUND THE WINDOW, ACROSS THE SKIRTING BOARDS AND ON THE CEILING.
The bedding was clean, but as I have said it was damp and the heavy blankets (no duvets) felt cold and horrible. The bed was hard and there were only two pillows on the double bed.
Although the en-suite was modern in style, in the middle of the night the shower suddenly began to pour with water; we hadn't used it during our stay.
All in all it was an awful experience and probably the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. After an awful night's (lack of) sleep we left at 7.40am without trying breakfast; we just wanted to get out into the fresh air and as far away as possible.
It may have been budget, but the condition of the room was so bad it should not be let out at all until it is dried out and made safe - do not take your family to this hotel!

Room Tip: Room 9 not family friendly but damp and mouldy

"London is stupidly expensive" this can adequately describe London ! so staying in this cheap & basic bed & breakfast makes it a bit more affordable ( alisaww i so agree with you ! ) .
Only 2 points for
1. Location, which situated in a quiet place in a very decent area (even though its less than 5 mins walk to the earls court tube station )
2. Cleanliness
the rooms are super small and its barely room to walk ,VERY small bathroom & shower ,there's almost no room for wash up if you are overweight ! ( recently renovated though )
breakfast was BASIC but fine ( boiled egg and slices of cheese makes a bit luxury !) and like everything else ,the breakfast room is so tight but still there's plenty of seats if you manage to be there before 9 .
THERE IS NO LIFT , so try to get rooms on lower floors or YOU'RE DEAD by small stairs !!!!
No more cheap hotels and definitely no more LONDON !

Room Tip: LOWER FLOOR rooms if you don't wanna be dead by stairs !

London is stupidly expensive. Staying here made the trip a bit more affordable. The rooms were small - we had a double, a twin, and a baby cot (for our 2yo, ahem, baby). And there was barely room to walk. The carpets are pretty trashed. But you can't expect luxury for this price. The breakfast room was fine and hey, there was breakfast. The location is pretty darn unbeatable. Walk to Hyde Park easily, steps from Earls Court tube station, on the edge of the Chelsea - the wealthiest neighborhood in London. Nothing about the rooms grossed me out - were clean if worn. They weirdly seemed to try to add luxury by providing us with approximately 82 little packets of shampoo. Staff were fine, if not overtly friendly. Average place, great location, reasonable cost. We asked for a room on the bottom floor and got one.
