1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013 via mobile

I do not know how they git 3 star!! Small rooms, cold and dark rooms in the basement. every morning I saw new towels and bed sheets on the hallway floors before housekeeping change them..not so clean and not friendly staff at all. Only good thing about this hotel is location just a minute from earls court underground...
I wanted change my hotel even after paid for a week, but looks like most hotel in this area are almost same.. Old location.

Dear guests,

The hotel was fully refurbished in 2013. So any reviews up to 31st August 2013 should be completely disregarded.

We have asked Trip Advisor to remove reviews relating to prior to the refurbishment. We have sent proof of new ownership and of refurbishment, documents from the Building Control from the Local Council , pictures after refurbishment etc.

The experience of staying a total of 4 nights here was really terrible. We had booked 2 nights here when we arrived London and another 2 nights here before we left for our home, with 7 days apart. We had booked 2 rooms for my family of five but we were never put in the same floor. I and my husband had to separate with my 3 children in these 4 nights. The staff were not helpful at all. They refused to arrange us in the same floor in our 2nd return though we requested early on the day of arrival. The fridge was out of order and they seemed helpless on our request to change or repair. The rooms for me and my husband were small and could hardly accommodate our 2 luggage. There was no chair in the room and you had to step on to the bed when you entered the room. The breakfast room was always crowded during breakfast time and the tourists had to squeeze themselves in this little room. Spending 100 pounds for each room per night surely did not worth it.

Room Tip: brtter not choose this hotel

Hotel receptionist initially was too busy talking to her (boy)friend and on her mobile to serve us when we arrived, but after a few minutes when I stared at her, she sprang into life. The room was quite small, but adequate. She didn't give us a TV remote, but I wasn't bothered. The fridge didn't chill anything. No free internet. Carpets slightly shabby. Room was clean though and the kettle and toiletries was a great 'old school' touch you don't see too much of these days.

Short walk to Earls Court Tube and West Brompton Railway station. Olympia was about 15-20 minutes walk away, which was the whole point of staying here for the Great British Beer Festival.

Breakfast room was way too packed at 8.45am, you could barely move, but we persevered and had a very basic coffee and muesli.

We had a room on the first floor at the rear of the building. You could hear the rumble of tube trains and station announcements from Earls Court, but it wasn't any bother and I like trains anyway.

Thank you for your review.

The hotel was completely refurbished in May, June and July and from the 1st of July, the hotel doesn't have any carpets any longer. All the rooms have oak flooring.

Our breakfast is continental and is widely advertised and is complimentary. However we offer a little more than the usual continental breakfast. It consists of coffee,tea, fruit juices, assortment of rolls, brown and white toast, corn flakes, musli, cheese, marmalade and butter. We are thinking of reviewing the items we serve.

We believe in improving and learn a lot from guest reviews, so thank you for your feedback!

An unforgettable experience in this 3 stars hotel. Can I give "no" star to it ? We're allocated to the basement room, with a "nice" view of the steps and the washing room of the hotel. We dare not to open the window because we afraid of cockroach and mice climbing into the room. The bathing area should get the Grade A smallest because the area should not be larger than 26' x 26". Everything like towels etc.....drops at least once. Every item in the hotel is so small but to me, the rate is not cheap yet, its only 15 to 20% cheaper than the real 4 stars hotel.
All I have to say is "the poorest hotel I've ever stayed".

Room Tip: Don't stay here

Staff were lovely and accommodating. The twin bed room was clean yet very small. Plenty of choice at breakfast yet rooms were again small for the bum we of people trying to eat. Area was quiet and beds comfortable, slept very well.

It beggars belief that this place bear three stars; it is barely worthy of one.

The positives? The classy neighbourhood, the large array of free television channels, the relatively central location.

The negatives? The pokiness of the whole place (from the upper-storey "double" bedrooms in which you couldn't swing a hamster, to the panic-attack-inducingly-cramped lift, to the appallingly squashed dining area), the humidity of the place midsummer, the vile stenches emitted by the bedroom air conditioning units, the baby-sick honking shower gel, the lumpy mattresses, the cold unsmiling manager, the darned rip-off room rates.

In a word, avoid.

Room Tip: Avoid the upper storey. It is worse than a Chinese sweatshop midsummer
