Location was perfect, we stayed here for 7 days, nice neighbourhood. Very close to Earls Court Subway. The front desk person was helpful, booked some tours through him. The room and bathroom were tiny but perfectly workable and clean. Breakfast was included, wasn't anything special, cereal, some toast with jam.

nothing really too great about this hotel other than the location. Looks are really deceiving - from the outside it looks like it would be really fancy, but no way! It's a very dreary hotel that really needs a makeover. Positive - staff was really nice. They had a library at the front desk and I was able to borrow...

The hotel location is FAB, and Kensington is a great place to stay, however the staff are very rude and unfriendly and the rooms are pokey and limited. The bathroom was a little grubby too. How this hotel got 3 stars I have no idea. Its also massively overpriced. You can find a much better deal elsewhere.

First of all, I must admit I didn't check any comments on the hotel before booking. It was planned in a hurry this trip and I trusted the booking company when they oferred us this 4 stars hotel (this is the category of the hotel on our booking mail). Seeing the other comments, I alredy consider myself a lucky traveler...

The bathroom was tiny, too small to swing a cat! had to turn sideways to get in to the shower as the toilet was blocking the door from opening fully. The water pressure/temperataure was dodgy to say the least, was scalding hot one minute, freezing cold the next, and more like standing under a tap as opposed to a shower....

A short walk from the Earl's Court TUBE stop. It was easy to get to every major attraction from this location and it was all in zone 1 which saves you $. The front desk staff was not cheery and not a good first impression. The room was small but not uncomfortable (unless you bring tons of luggage.) There was...

Like others mentioned, we got a 2 twin bed room when we requested 1 queen. The only other room available was in the basement so we spent the first night in separate beds. The next morning the manager called and said if we left our bags packed they would move them to a new room. When we returned from a...
