“Excellent stay, brilliant staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

Stayed one night mid week with family. Attentive and friendly staff always there to help. Lovely clean room, brilliant breakfast and ideally located near to the tube giving access to the whole of London. Thoroughly recommended for families. Will be coming back.

Booked two nights with partner, nice clean rooms, friendly staff, would stop here again. Would avoid rooms at back due to proximity of subway trains which run until midnight, but still slept well. Nice and close to Piccadilly line station, with good array of shops only 5 minutes away.

Perfect location. Close to tube station. Walkable to museum district. Lovely, friendly staff. Excellent breakfast. Basic but very comfortable and clean rooms. Fantastic hot shower in the morning.
Slight problem with wifi sorted by helpful staff.

We've stayed here many times over a number of years due to its excellent location, close to Earl's Court and Gloucester Road tube stations and a short stroll to South Kensington with all the museums, Royal Albert Hall and on to Hyde Park and beyond.

We didn't eat at the hotel but our room was clean and all the staff were friendly, smiley and happy to help. Well-priced for a family room in London.

this was a second visit within 5 months, this time stayed on the rear of the hotel, this is definitely noisier than the previous stay as this is overlooking the underground lines. Welcome was good, room was good. Didn't have breakfast this time, this premier inn only does the full breakfast, no continental option. If you just want continental you still pay for the full, which at nearly £10 is not that cheap, there are plenty of places in Earls Court if you just want cereal and a coffee, Greeggs within 2 minutes walk and a quarter of the price! Would stay again but want pay for food here.

Room Tip: Ask for one at the front

For the price, this hotel is excellent. It's a block away from the Earl's Court tube stop and plenty of dining options to choose from (if you're willing to walk a bit). The staff was awesome, super helpful and nice, the only downside being that they never answered the phone when I called down.

I thought it was odd that the hotel did not have mini-fridges or a safe in the room. The lack of laundry was a shame as well, especially since it cost us £11 to do one load of laundry at the wash & dry down the street. Navigating the hotel is a little tricky at times as well - I ended up in the Marriott somehow one night!

I read many Trip Advisor reviews before booking and was a bit worried about the noise, since the hotel is located next to an outdoor train track. Our room was across the bridge on the other side of the street, so we didn't have to deal with that noise, just the rumble of the train passing by, which didn't really bother either of us. Just bring some earplugs and deal!

Room Tip: Rooms on the opposite side of the bridge don't seem to be near the train tracks

Usual premier inn standard near Earls Court underground. Welcoming check in, baggage storage free as we were early for check in. Room clean and air conditioning worked well, even better you could open the window a little.
Evening meal service was terribly slow despite serving staff seeming to work at maximum speed we protested after one hour and no main course and we're told they had staffing problems in the kitchen. Staff apologetic and some discount given however not good with two small hungry children.
Breakfast was fine.

Room Tip: Had fifth floor and it was fairly peaceful, suspect lower floors might be noisier
