I showed up at the lobby of this hotel after discovering a grave error I'd made in reserving a nearby hotel. The two people in reception that morning were friendly and very helpful. They took me up to a room right away even though check-in time wasn't for many hours yet.
The room had one queen (or full/double?) bed. Everything about the room was what you'd expect when getting a room in the States, just a little smaller (London-sized.)
The room was neat, attractive, and smelled clean. It also had that nice gentle constant rumble of the climate control system which kept our room exactly the temperature we wanted.
The hotel was apparently full when we stayed there (as it was the week of the Tour de France) and yet it wasn't noisy. There was nothing disruptive about our time there as we rarely heard other guests.
DOCTOR WHO FANS!
Google this address. Then...look around the corner at "Earl's Court" train station. Drag the little man down to "street view" and just look at what is right in front of the train station exit...just around the corner from the hotel! (a Tardis)
Each time we came in the door in the evening we were greeted by the person behind the counter like we'd just "come home."
The people there were also suuuuper helpful in figuring out how to get to places we needed to go.
I can't imagine how my vacation would have gone had I not stayed at this hotel.
You can get to this hotel easily via "The Tube." You can get the underground transportation right from baggage claim in the airport. And, it's about 1/2 hour on one train straight to Earl's Court. You get out, turn right and then take the next right. It's a 2 minute walk to the hotel.
KING'S CROSS TRAIN STATION
You can also take one train straight to King's Cross where you can get trains to other parts of England OR also get the Eurostar (to other parts of Europe.) It's easy.
