“London Town Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013

This hotel in the city obviously cannot match those B and B in the countryside from where we came. However, considering that this is the City of London where human traffic through the hotel was high indeed, the staff are polite, in particular the charming lady who had our breakfast ready by as early as 7.30 a.m. every morning. The rooms were well cleaned every day. The location is good, being near to Earl's Court Road which has many shops, including a large convenience store, a launderette, etc., and also near to a train station. The hotel also has a lift. If you need to boil water, you have to use the kettle at the pantry on the second floor. We bought our own kettle from a shop along Earl's court Road as we stayed for four nights.

Room Tip: During summer, preferably have a room with an air-conditioner.

This is not a bad choice if you want to stay in the Earl's Court area and you're not fussed by quality, however, the hotel is quite old and it shows. When we were there it was not good value for money, although in fairness it was a last minute booking and not much else was available. The hotel is really more like a lodge or backpacker accommodation (minus the dorms and shared bathrooms). The breakfast wasn't particularly good, suggest you eat out unless you're getting breakfast as part of the deal.

The location of the London Town hotel is fantastic; very close to the Earl's Court Underground allowing easy travel to all of central London. In addition, the Earl's Court Rd has a number of good restaurants a few minutes walk from the hotel. The staff was quite helpful and friendly. We stayed in a comfortable family room that had a loft space with two twin beds, which was great for our two older kids - this allowed enough space for a family of four. While the decor room and common space is a bit dated, the bathroom was quite modern. The continental breakfast included cold cereal, toast, hard-boiled eggs, juices, coffee, tea. In addition, we had no issues with WIFI access. We would stay here again.

We booked the London Town through our travel agent in Australia. We were not aware that our 4 night stay was over the bank holiday weekend in early May - this limited our choices as the prices were likely higher at this time. The room we stayed in was basic - a bed, desk, TV, bathroom - everything you need as a tourist as you spend very little time in the room.

The location is excellent. About a 1 minute walk from the Earls Court station which intersects several lines (Circle, District, Picadilly). There are excellent places to eat - The Courtfield Pub does excellent meals, as does the Blackbird Pub.there is also McDonals, Burger King, Starbucks, Chinese, Thai - you name it, it's there. There is also a good clean laundrette accessible by a 2 min walk.

The service staff at the counter are very helpful and provide good advice.

As for sleep - bring earplugs. I could hear my neighbour (male) singing Britney Spears until 21:30 and snoring until 5 am. Other than that single night, all good! Thanks London Town!

Room Tip: Bring ear plugs!

With an excellent location this hotel is an excellent compromise between cost and quality. Near the underground/tube we quickly got any place we want because the Earl's Court station is connected to the main lines from London. The rooms are not large but are comfortable, calm and quiet. So we always slept very well. The breakfast room is small and sometimes is too busy. The type is continental breakfast and for us sufficient: toasts, butter, jam, juices, milk, coffe, cereals, cakes and boiled eggs. On the 1st floor there is a living room with coffee and tea available at any time for customers. Also a balcony and an inner garden make smokers "feel at home". The hotel have 3 different free wifi networks that work very well. All members of the staff are extremely friendly and always ready to help.
It is undoubtedly a nice hotel where, in a next opportunity, I don't mind to stay again with my family. Very good value and worth the price it costs

Room Tip: Rear rooms are quieter

I arrived early in the morning and came straight to the hotel to drop my bags off as I knew I wouldn't be able to access the room then. I checked in, the night porter told me where to put my bags and I was able to use the wifi too. Night porter wasn't very friendly but then the next lady came in to take over and saw me sitting on the ground using my laptop and let me know where the guest lounge was with couches... thanks for telling me night porter lol!
Bags were in my room when I came back after a day of sightseeing and the room was everything I needed - a bed, ensuite with a nice hot shower with good pressure and a tv to provide background noise.
Bed was very comfy and hotel generally very quiet.
Breakfast was ok - cereals and tinned fruit and coffee... you had to ask for toast which I found out AFTER I had eaten my cereal - a sign would be helpful.
Would definitely come back - great hotel, great location.

Room Tip: I had a room right on the top floor - worlds slowest lift but still a very nice, quiet room with a s...
