There are plenty of choices for accommodation and this one did not disappoint. It was our first trip to London and the K & K was no more than 5 minutes walk to Earls Court Tube station.
The rooms are small in comparison to Australian room sizes, however, you must expect that it is the norm in London perhaps with exception to the major Hotels, it really boils down to affordability.
The rooms were very clean, comfortable and the ensuite adequate.
A full breakfast was available and you had every possible selection to choose from.
Staff were very helpful and nothing was an issue for them to attend to. The corridors were narrow and each level serviced via 2 lifts.
Getting around is easy on the underground, better to purchase an Oyster card and top up as you go. It can be used on trains and buses and has a daily cap, meaning you can travel all over town as much as you want on a capped limit.
The hackney cabs are a good second choice. All the cabbies we had were very well spoken and carried a good conversation.
Most attractions are serviced by the underground and walking, it was a good way of staying fit and walking off breakfast. Very easy to find your way around.
A great holiday, and can't wait to get back soon.
No swimming pool or spa, but considering you are sightseeing you won't need them.

Room Tip: Rooms on any level are fine, being one full block back from Earls Court rd you won't hear any tr...

Have just returned from a 3 night stay whilst on a business trip to London with 6 other colleagues.
The facilities are excellent, staff very professional and extremely helpful nothing was too much trouble. Standards of cleanliness are very high, food is second to none.

Added bonus was the secure underground car parking facility, gardens located at the rear of the property were outstanding a real 'hidden gem'.

Location was ideal for our needs located within a few minutes walk to Earl's Court exhibition center were we were working. We did eat out on one of the nights, choice of establishments close by were numerous and also quite good.

We will certainly use the Hotel again.

We stayed at the K+K for ten days , half before a tour of the UK and Ireland and half after. In general this is a great hotel and we would not hesitate to return on a future trip to London. The location is perfect for us just around the corner from the Earl's Court tube station. Earl's Court tube station sits on the District Line (from Heathrow) and Circle Lines. We could be in Westminster in minutes. We purchased oyster cards in Canada before arriving at Heathrow Airport. To get to the hotel you go out on Earl's Court Road, turn left, left again, and then right on to Templeton Place. Look for the flags over the entrance. (5 minute walk). We felt safe at all times including late dark evenings. There are many restaurants, grocers, fast food and baked goods places , pubs, and a laundry, within easy walking distance. We particularly liked the food and ambiance at the Blackbird Pub and the Earl's Court Tavern. That said the restaurant / pub at the K+K was wonderful, just a little more expensive. The grocers had anything from bottled water to many types of English ales and some surprisingly good wines. Naturally there was a good selection of fresh fruit, cheese , baked goods, chips, etc. This might seem a little weird but we purchased some premium bathroom tissue for our room . Let's just say the British standard for bathroom tissue(all over the UK) comes up very wanting when compared to the Canadian version.

The greatest asset at the K+K George was the staff. The front desk was very helpful and efficient as well as welcoming. The housekeepers and bell boys were very accommodating and pleasant and the breakfast servers were excellent. We had minor issues with an allergic reaction to feather pillows and needing a fan for sleeping, and these were dealt with in minutes.

The rooms are a little on the small side but we are hardly ever in them so it does not bother us in any way. The beds were fine and the bathroom amenities just fine. There is a small fridge in each room although we have little use for these. It is a good idea to do a self inventory of the fridges to make sure everything is there that the sheet says is there. We found a few discrepancies but just left a note for housekeeping and never had any problems. (this goes for all hotels). We had quite good WiFi in the room which was a nice touch. We found the rooms quiet and slept well.

The hotel has a beautiful garden in the back with a number of cozy nooks where you can enjoy a morning coffee or an afternoon beverage. The breakfast was VERY good and as others have said you will not go hungry. There are plenty of traditional buffet choices as well as more continental fare. We love our coffee and we found it to be almost at Canadian standards . Once the staff knew we were coffee hounds , our cups were continually filled . The servers were most pleasant and efficient.

We have one tip if you book any hotel on the internet or through a travel agent. PHONE or E Mail to confirm your booking at least a week in advance. We left our contact a little late and found out that a third party had not contacted the K+K and they had no evidence of our booking . After a number of frantic phone calls all was ironed out but we had some anxious stomachs for a day or two. This was NOT the fault of the K+K George . In fact the reception staff handled the problem very well!!h

This is a great property! I love the comfortable room (free internet!). Its very comfortable and the staff is very friendly. I love the breakfast (with mimosas) and the garden views. Very pleasant experience.

Also, it is in a great location within walking distance to Earl's Court Tube Station and lots of fun restaurants nearby. I will be back!

We stayed here based upon the TA reviews. It is very convenient to the Earl's Court underground in a very nice neighborhood. The garden in the back is a really nice place to enjoy your morning or afternoon tea.

The staff were great, hotel room excellent and breakfast buffet robust. We will definitely use this hotel again!

Room Tip: As for rooms that face the garden.
