“Good base .”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013 via mobile

Stayed for 3 nights in November, booked a double and used it as a single. Due to limited availability had booked and was given an adapted room which was very spacious, the shower was great too. Very comfy bed as is the norm with Premier Inn, some traffic noise which was to be expected given the location. 3 minute walk to a Tesco Superstore, 6 minute walk to Earl's Court station and 10 minute walk to Kensington High Street. My only niggle would be staff's local knowledge - they said there would be nowhere open to do money exchange at 6pm in the area when in fact the Metrobank and many exchange offices in Earl's Court Road were open and we were told that it was not possible to take a bus to Central london when in fact there is a stop 1 minute away (towards Tesco) which takes you to Marble Arch. All in all a good hotel, recommended.

This is a well situated Premier Inn for Olympia, Earls Court and the Albert Hall However we were somewhat disappointed. The room was adequate, though small. The quick check in machines were a very good idea. However, the restaurant appears not have enough seating when the hotel is busy and you must be prepared to queue to get in. In the evening we wanted a quick meal, this was hampered by the restaurant not being open at 5.00 p.m. as the kitchen was not ready (It opened 15 mins later). However, we ordered a pizza to eat in our room which we had to collect from Reception when ready. It was good when we got it. Our breakfast was very good and comparable to other Premier Inns, though we had to queue to get in. All the staff were brilliant and attentive.

Room Tip: Avoid lower rooms (below ground level)

Experienced a very good stay at this hotel recently.good location - 5 minute walk from earls court tube.the hotel itself is situated off the busy cromwell road however had no noise problems in a nice space 1st floor family room.there is also a 24 hour tesco superstore 5 minute walk along the same road.kensington high street is 5 minutes along the opposite direction.bad points is lack of parking (we parked in kensington high street), 20 minutes away at a very high daily cost.the hotel has expensive wifi.streets are pretty quiet despite the central location.

In the end this Premier Inn was as good as they always are, hence 4 star rating. BUT - the first room we were offered was totally unacceptable. Our recommendation is that Room 7, at the back on the lower ground floor, is to be avoided. The room has a window through which one can only see a high brick wall about 3 feet from the window, making the room very, very dark. It's also very small, and felt more like a dungeon than a hotel room. Maybe all the rooms at the back of the hotel on the lower ground floor are the same, I don't know. We returned to reception immediately, and were instantly given a 3rd floor room, no problem.
However, we felt it was a little cynical to allocate this room to people who were checking in at 2 pm, i.e. just after the check-in time began, and who'd paid £122 for the room, 2 months ago!
But we were happy with the rest of our stay.

Good location with nearby buses to the centre and 5 minute walk to tube station. Earls court road has almost every eating establishment you can think of so you don't have to venture far. Same good standard as other premier inns, comfortable rooms. Temperature was a bit warm at night but reception can help alter this if required.
