“Very average, with plus and minus”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

It is a very average hotel in London. Quite aged, in a typical white Victorian building, side by side with other similar.
The plus: very good location in Kensington, close to the tube and shop/restaurant. Our room had also a nice balcony looking at a garden and square.
The minus: the breakfast.
Cleanliness and pricing...average.

Stayed July 2014, travelled with family

I was in this hotel about a month ago with my boy-friend . The room was small but nice . The breakfast was also good. The hotel has got a beautiful position. It is next to the stop of Earl's Court where you can take the underground to go to the center of london in ten minutes!!

Maranton House Hotel is great, very cheap and the staff are extremely nice. They have awaited me and even gave me a double room as there was no empty single one for a day for free. The breakfast is amazing!

London hotels are expensive, so finding a good one at a reasonable price is fairly difficult. The Maranton House is not spectacular by any means - there's no elevator, single rooms are relatively small, the breakfast is cold (but plentiful). However, the facility is generally clean, although a bit worn in places, and the staff are friendly and helpful. I see that other reviewers complained about the bathrooms, but my single room had a glass shower door instead of a curtain, and the toilet flushed properly. I was surprised that I was able to check into my room at noon, since most hotels force you to wait until at least 3pm. You get a key to your room and one to the front door, if you plan to stay out past midnight. The location is perfect for travelers, with the Earl's Court tube station pretty much right around the corner, in addition to grocery stores, fast food places, good restaurants (especially Indian), pubs, a post office, Internet cafes, coffeeshops, and drugstores along the main road. For the traveler on a budget who is willing to put up with a few inconveniences, the Maranton House Hotel is suitable for a short stay,

Room Tip: Rooms higher up are quieter

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!!
