Reviewed 2 December 2012

I was a little apprehensive after reading a few of the reviews on this hotel on tripadvisor. I am so glad that I did NOT change my reservation. Charming small hotel! All employees that we met were extremely friendly. Our room was small, but so were the rooms in places we stayed outside of London prior to arriving at London Town Hotel. I think small rooms are just a fact of life in the UK (unless you want to pay a fortune). The room was clean, the bed linens were fresh, and our room was extremely quiet. The location was great, close to the Underground, and several good places to eat close by.

One note - if reading the other reviews and notice the negative ones, take into consideration the LOW number of negative ones....... the positive comments FAR outweigh any negative comments.

This is a value hotel and room sizes reflect that. It is well located near the underground and buses. A decent buffett beakfast is included. The free wi-fi can be erratic during the day but early in the morning or late at night the internet connection is adequate. The staff are friendly.

This hotel turned out to be better than we expected. We booked a double room, but was given a room for four, so we had lots of space. The hall and room was quite narrow, but I have learnt that is to be expected at London hotels.
It is situated in a quiet street just around the corner from the underground, so perfect location. From that underground, it was easy access to the largest attractions in London without even changing the tube.
At first glance, the hotel seemed a bit suspicious and cheap, with it's blue sign welcoming us at the door (they would be better of without it, to give a better first impression), but it turned out alright.
The staff was pleasant and helpful, and we didn't experience any problems during our stay here.
The breakfast was a disappointment, as all they had was warmed up croissants, cheese, eggs, jam and some cereals, and served toast at the table. Me and my mother decided to buy crackerbread to bring, as we are used to more fiber and nutrition for the first meal of the day. But either way, it was very welcoming to receive food at the hotel, so we didn't have to rush out each morning to get something to eat.
It's a nice area, with several shops and pubs as well.
The walls were a bit thin, so one could hear if anyone walked the hallway or were talking in the reception, but that didn't bother us as we brought earplugs.

If you need to stay around Earls Court, this is one of the best hotels to stay in. I have stayed in a number of the hotels around Earls Court and this is just about the quietest. Far enough from the tube to be quiet but close enough to walk to, about 3 minutes. The rooms are small but comfortable and the continental breakfast is fine. If you are expecting luxury and cordon bleu, this is not for you. If you want a good place to rest your head for a night or two, this is the place for you. Nice residents' lounge for tea and coffee and a multitude of eating places within a two minute walk. Stayed here three times now and will do so again. Do not stay in a hotel on the other side of Penywern Road unless you are a train spotter.

We had a night here during our London stay. The rooms were very clean & the bedding was comfortable.
We picked a triple room & it was a good size.
The service was fantastic. The gentleman on reception was very pleasant.
The location was great - just around the corner from the underground station.
There was a laundromat nearby (a huge plus). This was just a short walk from the hotel.
The walls are a little thin (we could hear everything from the rooms all around us), but do not let this deter you from staying here. Once 10pm came around, it was very peaceful and quiet.
We would definitely consider staying here again in the future.

We stayed 4 nights the location was fantasic just around the corner from the tube station. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much of trouble, the rooms are small but spotless and as we were sightseeing all day this was not a problem. Breakfast was very good and there was plenty of it. I cannot recommed this Hotel highly enough and will be staying there again when we visit London again..

Room Tip: We were facing the main road on the 6th floor and had no problem with traffic noise.

This hotel is very good value for money compared with other London hotels that I have stayed at. Very polite and effective staff. Good breakfast, No traffic noise. Good choice if you are on a quick visit to London and are not looking for top class luxury. Tube station just round the corner and reasonable resaurants nearby.
