“Worst hotel ever”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

I stayed 4 nights, and it was like nightmare. All I wanted was to get out of this hotel.
When I first came into the room, there was an aunt on the wall. Plus, there was another bug on the bad. I thought it was a dirt, but it moved back and forth. And I could also find a spider in the bathroom. After that, every spot and dirt looked like bugs to me, and I could not sleep well cuz I felt like bugs were climbing my body. Now I'm really tired. I want to get some sleep without worrying about bugs. It ruined my journey.
Of course the room itself is dirty and dated. The maid doesn't seem to clean up the room. (there was a hair on the bed as it was when I went out) Location is okay, but that's all. If you are looking for a cozy place to stay, not this hotel.

벌레 나오고 청소도 제대로 안돼있는게 더럽습니다. 깨끗한거 좋아하시면 가지마세요.

This hotel is quite convenient to Earl's Court. There are stairs so be aware of this with luggage. Rooms need updating. Especially carpets and bedding The bathroom was a decent size and the rooms in the back quiet. Only a cold breakfast is served, but amount of food is adequate. London hotels are expensive and this one is more for a budget minded person.

Room Tip: Rooms in the rear are very quiet but rooms in the front have a view of a park.

I would not recommend this hotel and would not stay in it again - despite the low rate.
Good Points - Location

Bad Points - Toilet didn't flush mentioned this at reception and she said to just keep trying to press the handle - she couldn't care less and obviously not first time it had been reported. Room was very outdated, balcony door did not seem very secure and handles missing from all the cupboards. Shower not very powerful. Bed was not double bed in size more like a large single

Think twice before booking this hotel!!

I wasn't sure what to expect when booking this Hotel, booked with Hotwire and went with it as it was a good deal but it was a hidden hotel until after booking.

First impression is that the room was dated, and it really is. It will be okay for some people but it is not modern by any stretch, the next biggest thing you'll find is that the room has just had better days, we lost count of things that either didn't fit correctly or were slightly broken or just missing in general. Door handles that either fell off or were missing, a plug socket that wouldn't actually allow a plug to stay in, the balcony door that was damaged and allowed water to seep in underneath and the bathroom which had a pretty large gap in between some of the tiles.... and the toilet which was a big issue. We brought this up with the person on reception and was promised it would be sorted... 3 days later, it had not been. Not impressed!

Other little things that weren't all bad but could have been better was the size of the bed, it was supposed to be a double but it was on the small side for a double, it seemed almost a large single rather then a double, you'll only get two pillows and if they were good that wouldn't be a problem but they didn't really support you that much so it wasn't the most comfortable night sleep. Walls are a tad on the thin side, but I do understand that this isn't really something that can be changed in the location, so not really that bothered by it.

But it's not all bad, location wise absolutely great, quiet little road just off a main road in Earls Court, just far enough away that there's little to no noise from outside other then morning bin collection. Only a minutes walk from lots of food and shops and importantly the tube station, and Earls Court is on three main lines so you can get just about anywhere major in London with little effort at all.

To sum it up, the hotel is fine, if you don't want any thrills then its ok. But despite what the website says, the room I stayed in had not been refurbished, if it was properly clean and everything in full working order I wouldn't have minded the place and would have probably enjoyed it as it is in such a good location, but in reality for a similar price you can find hotels in better condition. If they invest some money on modernising this hotel would be good, but I don't see this happening, and as a result I will be staying somewhere else on my next travel down.

My husband suggested that I break up my long weekly commute, by staying over in London once every 2 weeks to give me a bit of respite from the trains.
I have tried out 3 different hotels near my office, and this one is the best. Great room, all the facilities and friendly staff. Very cosy. I will continue to stay at this small but comfortable hotel for the forseable future.

Room Tip: Make sure the room is not facing a main road as you won't get any sleep unless the hotel has tri...

This hotel was fine. The room was small, but clean, the view was not extra pretty or anything, but cosy and the staff was kind. They were not english, and seemed a little lazy and a little like they didn't want to be where they were. The breakfast was absolutely fine, and the hotel is 3 minutes from a metro station.

I stayed at the Maranton for just a few nights. It is a very small but cosy hotel and the location is perfect, just a few steps from Earl's Court Station. I was completely satisfied with the room and the staff was extremely helpfull and friendly.Will deffinately stay there again.
