The hotel is located a few minutes walk away from the Earls Court subway station. It is fairly easy to access by subway coming from Heathrow as well as if you have been to the really central parts of London. Earl's court may not be in the centre of London but it is still a rather central location and staying here will provide easy access to most parts of London. It is also very convenient for Chelsea and Fulham home games. The hotel is located by the busy West Cromwell Road which may be a problem if you are very sensitive to noise. When I stayed there the side of the road closest to the hotel was closed so it was less traffic than usual.
The hotel itself is in nice, clean but clearly more budget oriented (no surprise there as it is part of the Premier Inn-chain). We were greeted by a very friendly receptionist who let us check-in a few hours early. The room was larger than expected, rather surprised by the generous space actually. The design is typical Premier Inn with rather horrible colors, awful paintings on the wall and cheap furniture. Everything was however fully functional so I had no problem with that.
The room had a small TV (would have been nice with a bigger since it was located at the opposite end of the room compared to the bed)., watter kettle (with coffee and tea provided) and a/c. There was also a small desk for working and I assume one of the beds usually is used as a sofa. The bathroom followed the same set-up, simple but everything was clean and fully functional.
The only complaint I would have is that they charge for Internet. I think it is something that should be included but it is a minor detail. I did not have any breakfast but it appeared to be moderately priced to be at a London hotel. To summarize a good budget option if you find yourself in London
