“they got everything right!”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

it was a great stay in London! We were there for our honeymoon and everything was perfect during our stay with Base2stay! Great location! about 5mins walk to the tube (train stn -Earl Courts)! The staffs were very friendly! We did not realise that they provide free wi-fi service in the hotel, we paid for the wifi and they were very nice to waive it off for us when we checked out! Great attitude and great service received from all the staffs who have served us! We will be back! Thank you so much for the lovely stay there!

I've stayed here several times because it's very near the Earl's Court tube, which has barrier-free access to the Piccadilly line to Heathrow, which makes it easy for luggage-lugging. It's in a quiet neighborhood full of restaurants. The hotel itself is a smartly renovated old building. The rooms are compact (if size matters to you, ask when you book) but have oversize showers, good beds, plenty of lights and a closet kitchenette with microwave and fridge. Multi-lingual staff is very friendly and helpful. Reasonably priced for London. I've been to London over 25 times and this is the best all-around hotel value I've found.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms can be noisy and even though they have one-way glass, can seem exposed. Even tho...

staff on arrival just could not be more helpfull the young girl training was great
the room was just the right sizr on the fifth floor clean and the bed was just to die for clean and comfortable
nice to stay where everything works
the surrounding area was just fantastic could get a hair cut on a sunday evening
the subway was a hop skip and a jump to the city centre cheap and easy to use recomend the subway to move around a wee bit daunting at first but just do it the star take away on the main road was great eat what you like in the shop they looked after you
the properties surrounding the hotel was fantastic
and then the hotel was a sanctuary in the fast lane thanks

Room Tip: second floor has a dream room with massive windows just ask the housekeeping staff to show you room...

This was my second visit to Base2Stay Kensington. Great location just one block from Earls Court tube station. Rooms may be small but are stylish, clean and comfortable. The kitchenette and the easy access to two large grocery stores (Sainsburys and Waitrose) makes for healthy and affordable dining options (but if you'd rather, there are many dining options and a couple of great pubs just steps away on Earls Court Road.

Room Tip: On both stays I was in a room facing the back of the hotel but I imagine even the front-facing room...

We booked a double room for two of our party and a Superior room for three of us to share. This consisted of a very large king sized bed, easily big enough for three!, but included a single size sofa bed, desk and chair.
The rooms had enough space, air conditioning and the beds were very very comfy, (including my bed, which was the chair-bed, but felt like a good quality ordinary bed) and very good bathrooms, with a great shower and bath. (the double room had a large, walk-in shower, but no bath) Thick white fluffy towels and shower gels were provided.
The kitchenette in a cupboard is really useful. Sachets of coffee, tea bags, milk and sugar enable you to make a few drinks without having to go shopping first. A fridge and microwave are handy too.
The rooms and corridors are spotless and decorated in calming, contemporary, neutral shades.
We were completely unaware of noise from other guests when in the room.
If you are unused to traffic sounds, it may be better to sleep with the windows closed, as there can be a fair few cars passing in the early morning, but this was hardly noticeable when we shut the windows.
Earls Court tube station is at most, a 5 minute walk away and there are plenty of shops, bars and banks either side of the station.
I'd highly recommend Base2Stay and look forward to a return visit. Returning guests are offered a 5% discount if booking direct.
The staff were all extremely pleasant and helpful and made our stay very pleasant indeed.

Room Tip: Room 109 is a Superior room, with space for 3 adults, directly above reception and very quiet.

I booked because I needed a hotel near Cromwell Road. The TripAdvisor reviews were good, but I've stayed in so many overpriced and disappointing London hotels that I expected another lemon.

This does not pretend to be The Ritz, but scores highly on all my key requirements.

Excellent

We stayed 2 nights in a double room at base2stay after visiting relatives near London.

The room was as shown in the web site pictures. It is small even by London standards but the price was excellent. Since we did not spend much time in the room, the size was not a problem. Note that the double bed is double mattress over twin box spings. The mattress is quite thick so this was not a problem for us.

The room was extremely clean. The compact kitchen was well equipped and the service staff washes any dishes left in the sink. An electric kettle is supplied and as is instant coffee. A hairdryer is also supplied.

The front desk staff was very friendly and accomodating. We had arrived several hours before check in and they willingly agreed to let us drop off our bags. When we returned to complete check in, the bags had been placed in our room.

The Earl's Court tube stop located 1 block west of the hotel on Earl's Court Road. There are numerous pubs and restaurants on Earl's Court Road including a Starbucks. The hotel does not have a coffee shop. The hotel has discount coupons for several restaurants in the area.

The area around the hotel is quiet with very little traffic. The hotel does have a lift (elevator).

The hotel is definately not posh. However, it is a good deal by London standards and is a great choice as a place to sleep while enjoying a great city.
