    Staff were friendly and the location of the hotel is excellent. The room was tidy and not to cramped. Tea and Coffee, Kettle, hair dryer and tv was all in good working order and it was very handy having a heater at either side of the room!

    Bed was quite uncomfortable :(

    Staff were friendly able to store bags there during the day Good location for what we wanted to do.

    Unclean!! Found an old bottle under the bed! No curtains at the windows or a net! No toiletries to use! Breakfast was basic.

    Location is good.

    We stayed in room 115. It was noisy (right next to the corridor main door) you could hear upstairs moving and flushing their toilet, the shower head leaked and so was left on the shower floor so not to go everywhere, it was mouldy and the beds were not comfortable. I would not stay again!

    The hotel has an elevator which turned out to be a plus after long walks around the city and that we were carrying trolley bags. The pillows in the bed were very comfy and with various degrees of "softness" so you will feel very "at home". The hotel is very close to EARLS COURT station, which is one of the main stations in central London, it has a Marks and Spencer supermarket less than 100m away in the corner of Earls Court Road which also has multiple restaurants and coffee shops. Even though we didn't book a room with the option of free breakfast, the hotel offers the guests a working desk that also has a kettle, some tea and coffee bags and some small packs of milk and biscuits. The working desk also has a large mirror and a hair dryer. The bathroom was very clean, modern, and had a nice shower with very nice pressure and temperature on the water from it.

    The only minor downsides that we can point out (that maybe could be particular to our room) were that: - The room didn't have a mini-fridge and we were hoping to find one there (not that we were promised one, just that we are used to that on some hotels in London) - (This a pet peeve) The TV was in a corner and didn't face the bed, this could be fixed with a swivel mount.
