We stayed here last year during our Wimbledon trip and did the same this year. Our room was of a good size, the bed was extremely comfortable with a choice of pillows, the aircon is effective and quiet and we heard no internal or traffic noise. We couldn't ask for anything more!
The breakfast room is very bright and comfortable and the breakfast selection is typical of the chain. We were impressed how quickly the food was replenished and also the speed by which the tables were cleared and wiped clean.
We found the staff to be very pleasant, helpful and efficient and we will have no hesitation in returning next year if we are lucky enough to get tickets for Wimbledon again.

This hotel in the Earl's Court area, is a good choice for comfort, quiet, and convenience. If you are in this part of London, check it out. The neighborhood is an exciting market area with lots of good food, and activity.

Need a haircut, try Louis' around the corner.

We stayed at the Earls Court Holiday Inn Express from Jun 13 through June18. We found the accomodations to be excellent. We were looking for a reasonably priced hotel that would sleep two adults and two teenage boys and we couldn't have been more happier with our choice. The Hotel is a little bit away from most of the major sights but the West Kensington tube station is within an easy walk so we found it to be no problem at all. We asked for the annex based on other's comments and the room was excellent. The downstairs area had a nice bar set up to grab a drink and watch the World Cup. There was air conditioning, Irons were available as well as an ice machine and a couple of computers in the lobby as well. The fact that the neighborhood was off the tourist track made it more interesting and Best Mangal restaurant up the street was a real find. As we were going to be leaving London for another week in Europe the fact that there was a self serve laundry literally across the Street made the location even better. All the hotel staff were fabulous and very helpful. I need to give a special thanks to Elwira who was so kind and helpful in answering several questions and inquiries that we had from the time we booked til the time we arrived. She was great!!

Room Tip: The annex was newer and thus reportedly a bit better.

The standard of this hotel is absolutely not fancy- however it's value for money. It's clean, the rooms have all you need for a short stay, wifi is free, staff is really friendly etc. Breakfast does not add any value to the experience but it offers enough to keep you full. The tube is a 5-6 min walk which is perfectly ok.

The only thing to complain about it's the area where the hotel is located. It feels a bit dodgy and as a female travelling alone I did not feel comfortable in going out to eat on my own in the evening.

Again- the hotel is very standard but given the hotel prices in London you get reasonably much for your money...

Just had a couple of nights here and really happy with the choice. From the first welcome through to check out, we have been really impressed. The staff are very efficient and really friendly. Rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean and comfy. I prefer a cool room and am often far too hot in modern hotels. The air con here works better than the majority of hotels I've stayed in abroad. A real aid to a comfortable night's sleep. Breakfast is included and sets you up for the day.

The hotel is within a 15-20 minute tube or bus ride of most of the things you'd want to do. We were at the theatre in the West End one day and at Wimbledon the next. Both easily reached.

We booked a few months in advance and got a good rate. Very acceptable for London. I will happily recommend this hotel to friends.

Chose Hotel for location ,stayed Saturday night.
The check in was friendly and efficient, room clean and reasonable size for London. Noise transferred a lot from room above but overall nice for a night.
The breakfast i would agree with other reviwers is basic and caffateria style on tray sort of thing and the choice very limited.
Overall i would say it's not worth the £145 i paid but would use it again if i had to.

Recently stayed at the HI Express Earl's Court for one night. I normally struggle to find good value for money with London hotels and this was no exception, I didn't feel the price was worthy of a Holiday Inn on a Monday night. Alas, we had no choice so had to book.

On arrival to the hotel we were greeted by a friendly receptionist, got checked-in reasonably quickly and were advised our room was in the new block of the hotel. The room was nice enough, a decent size for a London hotel, even with the sofa bed set out as a double. It was also cleaned to a good standard.

We took advantage of the free wifi but I did find this to be slow (not sure if this was due to the location of the room or whether it was generally slow).

There is no iron in the room but reception were happy to provide one on request, other than that the room had all the standard amenities you would expect.

The hotel is located in "Earl's Court", but the nearest underground station is either West Kensington or West Brompton (which is also on the London Overground), both of which are about a 5-10 minute walk away, which, to be quite frank, I wouldn't recommend doing alone at night. There is also a bus stop directly outside the hotel with good connections, including a nightbus service (massive plus if you're staying out past midnight when the underground generally closes down).

I requested a late checkout the following morning which was granted so we unfortunately didn't make the most of the free breakfast.

Overall, I have no complaints about the hotel itself, it was nice and clean and we got a good nights sleep. It was a decent sized room for a London hotel and therefore I would rate the hotel as very good. Despite being competitively priced I do still feel that I didn't quite get value for money on this particular stay.

Room Tip: Request a room in the new block :)

Dear Alexander D

I am so pleased you thought the service was welcoming and friendly, you thought our cleanliness was good and that the room was of a decent size. I am sorry that upon this occasion you didn't feel that you had value for money. When booking for central London its always a good Idea to look up the Fantastic deals that are available such as the 21 day Advance purchase which offers a cheaper rate if you book in advance.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review about your stay here with us we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay here.

I do hope that you have the opportunity to visit London again soon and that you choose to come and stay with us again.
