“Our second time for Christmas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 December 2013

Always excellent service and breakfast. However this time I want to draw the attention of hotel management on the fact that it is necessary in a hotel of this category to install double-glazed windows in the hotel rooms. Due to the storm and wind we both fell sick with bronchitis the first windy night due to the draught in the room. The second night we were given a portable heater and extra blanket but there are other ways if only for environmental reasons.

We enjoyed staying in this hotel .Reception was friendly and welcoming and helpful during our three day stay.
Our room on the fifth floor was clean and well equipped (safe, tea/coffeemaker flatscreen tv, minibar) ) bathroom with a preheated (sort of) marble floor.
Two elevators and never a long wait.
English buffet breakfast with a lot of choice is served in a sometimes crowded restaurant/breakfast room
Expect a little waiting time ( 5-10 minutes) during peak hours, but that's just a minor inconvenience.
The hotel is located very near the subway station Earls Court.
We will gladly stay there again

Just spent two nights at K+K George very welcoming, really clean, staff very efficient. Breakfast lovely. Beds very comfortable. In great spot very close to Earls Court Underground. Little extras fruit on reception, daily paper at breakfast.

If I was to say anything negative it is that the bathroom is tiny just enough room to get in the door toilet behind door means door doesnt open fully, room is also small but adequate,and I would rather it be clean and comfortable than spacious. Needed to be said though just in case size of room is important.

It is hard to get a decent room in London that is good value for money. K+K George delivers on this in spades!
Pro's:
Very close to the Tube (Earl's Court) which links you to the whole city.
Free Wi-Fi
Friendly and helpful staff
Buffet breakfast was part of the price (I paid £100 a night which is about average for London)
Sparkling wine served at breakfast
Beds are comfy
Bathroom is adequate size
Lovely garden (nice to look at even in winter when we stayed)
Complimentary tea/coffee in the room

Cons:
As with most London hotels at this price, the rooms are a little small, fine if you travel light (like I do) but a few suitcases and you could be struggling for space.

Seriously there was nothing else I could fault the hotel on. There were a few niggles (couldn't keep room cool, only feather pillows in the room) and each was sorted out quickly and without fuss by the staff on reception which is how it should be.

The local area also has a selection of fast food restaurants if you don't fancy venturing into Central London, as well as a chemist and a small convenience store (ideal for getting bottles of water and snacks), which makes this part of London the ideal base for sightseeing.

You could debate whether this hotel is 3 or 4 star. But to be honest it really doesn't matter. The rooms are a great price, the facilities and amenities are perfect for the sightseeing traveller and the staff are helpful. You'll get a good nights sleep and be ready for a full day seeing the sights.

I'll be staying again.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the garden which was very quiet at night.

We were very happy with our choice of hotel and will definitely stay again and recommend to our family and friends. Staff were excellent, and wanting to help 24hrs a day. Lots of nice little extras, like bathrobes and fruit in the room. Breakfast was absolutely delicious, a chance to indulge. Underfloor heating in bathroom, tablet on desk, wifi, mini bar. Parking on site booked with room. Everything we could need and more. Rooms on small side but more than made up for it in every way. Very happy guests.

This is our third stay at K&K Hotel George and each stay has been consistently good.

The location is one of the best attributes of the hotel. A 3-minute walk from the Earl’s Court tube on the Piccadilly line which leads to Piccadilly Circus, Heathrow Airport and to King’s Cross St Pancras for the Eurostar. Earl’s Court has pubs, supermarkets, an M&S food store, laundrettes and an old police box that really looks like the Tardis. We walked to the Natural History Museum and Harrods – it probably took about 20 mins and 30 mins respectively.

The rooms are modern, clean and London-size so typically small. The room has a fridge, a good size in-room safe and free wifi (the wifi was patchy at times). The air conditioning seemed rather weak but was adequate.

The hotel has a lovely garden at the back of the hotel. The hotel is on a quiet road so noise shouldn’t be a problem on either side but the garden side has a pleasant view and is always quiet.

Unlike our earlier visits, this time our room rate included breakfast which was a welcome change. The breakfast was self service (other than tea and coffee), well organised and good quality.

The hotel uses an unusual magnetic key system and the room keys are left at reception when you leave the hotel. The staff were very good at recognising guests but, given the number of guests and reception staff, it should have been standard to have to provide personal details along with a room number to given the key.

We will definitely be back to stay at K&K Hotel George again.

Room Tip: Garden side is quiet and has a nice view

I'd give 3.5 stars if I could. First of all, the staff was great. I had a sprained ankle and arrived too early to check in, and they helped me get ice and take a nap in the reclined chairs in the small gym while icing my ankle. That was fantastic. The room was fine--quite small, but I am only one person. I had gotten a "women's special" rate. The flowers were nice. The Cosmo magazine I could have done without. It's a terrific location, very convenient to Kensington and the tube. Breakfast was fine--did not blow me away, but didn't disappoint me, either. My only real issue was that the internet was very unreliable. I had a terrible connection, and the staff kindly bringing a router to boost it did not actually help (perhaps the router had gotten accidentally reset?) If you're not traveling for work, this may not matter. I'd definitely consider staying here again.
