We stayed here for 5 days recently and were very happy with our experience. The staff was very helpful especially Kinga at the front desk. The rooms are much larger than we expected - about the size of a US hotel room. The included breakfast was good and we enjoyed being within a couple of blocks from a tube station. I would highly recommend this hotel.

My family stayed at the London Lodge for five nights at the end of June. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Comfortable clean rooms and baths, plenty spacious, very pleasant and helpful staff. It is tucked away on a quiet and attractive residential street, yet a five minute walk to the tube or to any amenity you might need. We came home exhausted and late one evening after a trip to Bath and decided to eat supper in the hotel restaurant, and had a surprisingly good meal. I see some reviews referring to "dated" décor - I did not notice that any of the furnishings were worn or in poor repair - the décor is just a touch more old-fashioned (and in my opinion less sterile) than you'll find in some newer more cookie-cutter type properties.

Great little hotel at a decent price. The neighborhood is very safe. Don't pass up a chance to wander around the street in back of the hotel. It is an older building so if you are looking for modern and splashy, continue your search. But if you need a safe, clean place to crash after a day of sightseeing, this is your place. There is a launderette a block away. A bank a block away. Sainsebury Convenience store a block away. I personally believe eggs should be offered in the free breakfast, but that's because I cannot eat yoghurt or cheese. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Oops. No swimming pool and I can't make my rating go away!

I think this hotel looks better in the photos than in the flesh.
But it's on a really elegant and quiet street just five minutes from Earls Court Tube Station.
Staff were very helpful and took us to our rooms, showed us how to work the air conditioning etc.
Tea and coffee making is included but you have to request it at reception and they bring the tray to you.
Our single rooms were quite spacious and very quiet but decorated like a 1990s old-people's home. The excellent bathroom, however, was large and airy, with a proper full-size window looking out onto trees. Good shower.
The bed was okay. There was a trouser press and all the usual things.
The mini bar had a noisy fridge, but mini bar prices were realistic for a change (Mars bar £1.00, bottled water £1.50).
The breakfast room is quite small and felt just a little cramped. Continental breakfast is basic, with croissant/toast, supermarket yoghurts, tinned grapefruit and not much else. You can order eggs (poached for £2.00 extra) or even a full English, but we didn't.
I didn't like the air freshener smell they were using in the hotel, which again had an air of old people's home.
Wi-fi is extra cost.
Not sure I'd choose to stay her again but there was nothing fundamentally wrong with it, and it is very clean.

Room Tip: Single Room 17 has a vestibule to separate it from the corridor and is very quiet.

This is such a good hotel for a single business traveller - the staff are unfailingly helpful and welcoming, everything works,it's spotless and although the decor is tired in places, overall it's a great base. The single rooms are reasonably sized, and mine had a decent bathroom, with proper shower and bath. Comfortable beds, air con / heating and space to stretch out - not usually the case for single travellers who tend to get the runt-end of the rooms. I'll be re-booking.

I stayed at the London Lodge Hotel for a few days in May and had a fantastic experience. In the past, I have usually stayed in pretty upscale business type hotels in London, but since this was on my own dime, I was looking for something a bit more affordable, but still in the center of London. And I am glad I choose this place.

I booked a single room (#23) which was small (as expected), but absolutely fine with lots of room for my luggage. The bed was very comfortable, the room was clean, with a small but nice TV and a small fridge/mini bar. To my surprise I even had a great view of a church and gardens (you almost felt you were in the countryside). The bathroom was fine as well with nice toiletries, but my room only had a shower, and if you are a large person, it might be a tight squeeze. The individual controlled air conditioner in my room worked very well, but the common areas didn't seem to have a/c.

WifI was not included, but you can purchase a voucher. Not cheap, but at least the connection was very fast and reliable.

The location is brilliant right between Earl's Court Station and Kensington High Street (which is one of my fave shopping streets in London). Very easy and inexpensive access from Heathrow via the Piccadilly line. Tons of restaurants within a 5 - 10 minute walk, and there is also a coin laundry place right before you get to the tube station.

The breakfast was good and you have the choice to add hot items for a minimal extra amount. But you will be fine with the regular included options. What I really loved was waking up and smelling the breakfast in my room--I felt as if I was staying at a friend's house rather than a hotel. And there is even a hotel cat that roams the gardens.

Everything was great, but the best aspect of staying here was the incredibly helpful staff. The two lovely young women who were at the desk while I was staying there were an absolute delight. I have circled the globe quite a few times and stayed in hundreds of hotels, but the service here was in the top 1 percent--plus with a personal touch you just don't get in a larger hotel.

This was one on the most delightful hotel stays I have ever had and would highly recommend it to friends and family.

My sincere thanks to the staff for such a wonderful experience!
