Premier Inn London Kensington (Earl's Court) Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 September 2012

I stayed with my family with 2 children, 11 and 13, on a weekend. The hotel room was very clean, maybe a bit too small for a family of four, but for us it was ok, since we hardly spent any time in our room, the breakfast was very good with alot of choices, from fresh eggs, bacon, sausages, porridge and more. The great convinience was that children under 15 have free breakfast. Check-in was easy and there is always a staff member to help you if you encounter any problems. The location was perfect, a 2 minute walk and you are at the underground. If you like to walk like we do, you can also walk. We had a nice walk to Harrods from the hotel, about 20min. Overall a great hotel for the price you pay, considering that around London it is much more expensive, and get alot less. Recommend it, if you are not looking for luxury.

Room Tip: maybe the other part of the hotel across the street, is much quieter since the tube trains run along...

Have stayed here a couple of times and enjoyed both stays. Convenient for Earls Court tube station and can walk to Kensington High Street for a bit of retail therapy. Excellent service from the staff. Will be back.

Room Tip: Higher Floor rooms are best for a good nights sleep.

This Premier Inn is located one block from the Earl's Court station, which makes it very convenient to get around. The hotel is clean, with comfortable beds. They have coffee and tea in the room. Although the room is basic (no mirrors in the room, except bathroom), it is comfortable. The hotel is quiet if you have a back room. You also get half hour of free internet, although it was difficult to use. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are staying in the area.

Tip- The breakfast is expensive, but you can get 2 children's breakfast with an adult breakfast.
On the street a block away are inexpensive options.

Stayed in London at this hotel for 4 nights in May. Service at the restaurant was impeccable. The Indian staff at the restaurant were professional and polite. (One of the staff name is Jazz). The hotel room was clean, well maintained (think they just undergone renovation). 5min walk to the train staion. The only thing I didn't like was the WIFI which only lasted 30min per room.

Chose Earls Court Premier Inn because of its distance from Central London (10 minutes on the Picadilly Line). The hotel is a 2 minute walk from the underground station. The outside looks a bit "office like" but once inside it is the standard Premier Inn - Clean and welcoming. The hotel is actually on both sides of the road with connection via a covered and enclosed walkway above the road. Were were on the sixth floor on the opposite side of the road which meant using the lift up to floor 2 then walking across the walkway to another lift which took us to the sixth floor. The room, although smaller than other Premier Inns we have stayed in, had air conditioning and triple glazing and was clean and bright. The bathroom was spotless and the shower provided an endless stream of hot water. Bed was comfortable although the pillows were a bit thin.

The in-house Thyme Restaurant was clean and specious and the staff very attentive. Overall 10/10

Room Tip: Top floor (Sixth) on the opposite side of the road via the covered walkway

Stayed in a Family Room, Sunday 26th August to Saturday 1st September 2012, with wife and two kids aged 9 and 15.
Very clean room and bathroom. Hotel is in a great location, with easy access to the Underground at Earl's Court. Great comfortable beds and pillows, and really appreciated the room air conditioning to allow good nights sleep. Experienced No problem of noise from the underground trains. Enjoyed good breakfasts each morning, although quite busy staff seemed to cope well. Premier Inn charge a reasonable price and the room size for London was OK. Staff were very helpful throughout our stay.
