“Beautiful, updated hotel near Earl's Court in Kensington”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

I was pleasantly surprised by how lovely this hotel was. 4 stars, recently renovated, very helpful staff, very clean, free WiFi, and in a nice quiet residential neighborhood in Kensington. The best part was that it was literally an easy 10-minute walk to get to our event at Earl's Court. Also just a 1-minute walk to the Tube station at Earl's Court and close to several restaurants, pubs, grocery stores, and laundry. We enjoyed the breakfast, too. Lots of hot and cold selections. The only drawback was the rooms were a bit on the small side, but that is typical for Europe. I got a double room, which is like a normal-size room for Americans. I would splurge and go for the biggest room. It was also just a bit pricey, but that was primarily due to the strength of the UK pound vs. the U.S. dollar. I would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: 4 floors in hotel - ask for a higher floor. Splurge for the double room.

We booked the hotel only the day before and got a great deal on Laterooms.com. The hotel is well situated near Earls Court tube station and the hotel is modern and very clean. The rooms are very small though but adequately equipped with a microwave, flat screen TV, tea/coffee facilities. Whilst there was no bath, there was a good sized shower. Given that one square metre in London costs £7,000 it is understandable that the rooms are small. Reception advised me about purchasing our breakfast the day before at a rate of £12.00 each, which is less than on the day. This hotel comes highly recommended to any couple on a London weekend near the Chelsea/Fulham/Kensington High St area.

Loved the hotel, brilliant location a short walk away from Earls court underground station, can go straight on the Piccadilly line to Heathrow airport, the staff always very pleasant and helpful the only bad thing I have to say about this hotel is we checked in early and were given a club room on the bottom floor, in the evening and early hours of the morning we could hear the chairs moving above us when the bar was open so would recommend a higher floor.
Apart from this would defiantly recommend, for the money certainly is a good hotel to consider

The hotel must have been renewed very recently because it looked very new - not a scratch, everything very clean (London hotels can be quite a let down in my experience...)
The rooms are relatively small, but not for UK standards
Service is kind and very efficient
Flat TV, comfortable bed, safe box, minibar, reasonable closet, the rooms are very satisfactory, there's room service and internal restaurant (did not try)
The best thig is maybe the location: 100m from Earls Court Underground, District line to Victoria (Gatwick) and Paddington (Heathrow) without changes, and Piccadilly Line (happened to be exactly the line I needed during my stay), it's very well connected
I was on a business trip so i can't comment about touristic attractions, but I think that any point of interest in London is close to the hotel or very easily accessed via the Underground
In the surroundings there are shops and pubs should you need anything from a yogurt to a taylor

We made PGLK our base for 7 days and we loved every minute of it. For one, they were very flexible and offered us a choice in selecting our room. We selected Room # 420 and it was probably one of the best rooms in the mid-range there. Staff extremely friendly (Prashant and Rinya from front office) and approachable for all kinds of questions. Very patiently, they respond to all queries and also provide great recommendations of nearby restaurants where you can grab a quick bite. There are tons of options to eat apart from the Nando's, Mac's, Starbucks and Subway around the corner. This aside, all kinds of cuisines also available within a 10 min walk.

Earls Court station is just a quick 5 min walk away and you are connected to the whole of London through this network. You can't go wrong with this location.

Room Tip: The basement rooms have no windows. Please ensure you ask for a room from floor one onwards

I stayed one night at the Park Grand for business. I was upgraded which was lovely and the room was very spacious and the bed huge and very comfortable! I would have graded this hotel excellent, except for a few minor things - on arrival check-in was handled well, but I was not advised of check-out time or asked whether I required a wake-up call. Breakfast was a very comprehensive and tasty buffet, but staff took a while to greet me and show me to a table and a long wait to take the drinks order. I ordered tea but got coffee - I drink both so it didn't really matter! I would definately recommend the hotel and use it again if I needed accommodation in this area.

The rooms are clean and very comfortable. The reception staff looked after us very well early checkin was provided to us on a very short notice. The door attendants are really attentive and offered us help every time they see luggage with us. I will make this hotel as my second house when ever I visit to London
