    Would recommend this accommodation to all. We loved everything about the hotel: staff and location. Our room was with walk in shower, a plus for us. They offered us a pub not far from the venue.

    We loved how close it is to earls court exhibition centre. The room had a good balcony. Parking was nearby and it was very convenient. A superb base for exploring London: D

    The location of the hotel is great. Only a few steps away from the underground station in zone 1. The staff is friendly

    For London the price-performance ratio of the hotel is okay.

    It could be renovated a bit, but otherwise it was good.

    I disliked everything about the hotel.

    1 Rooms cramped and old. Bedding more suited to a dog house. 2 Looks as if never painted in 100 years. 3 Room Toliets so small could not use. Also leaked and cramped. 4 Breakfast nothing good at all to say. Better in a war camp im sure. 5 Shower well what can I say .Instructions for use. Leave cold tap running for 3 minutes before turning on shower. Pressure of shower same as milk from a babys bottle. 6 Mind head signs, torn carpet, no card facilities and billing not right. 7 Booking .com payments were did they go. Cant believe this hotel .Faulty Towers 5 star compared to this.

    Easy access as I was working near Earls Court. Decent Shower. Cleaning undertaken every day and after discharge.

    Poor menu for Breakfast. No tv and Radio. The only tv did not function.

    The location was very good. It was quite calm.

    Double room had six beds and looked like a dorm room in a youth hostel. Room smelled a little musty. Toilet facilities were just across the corridor and quite clean. Shower and sink were located in one corner of the room surrounded by carpet. The overall impression was to be in a hostel and less a hotel. Way too expensive for what it was. Staff was very friendly.

    It is extremely close to an Underground station and is across the street from a very nice pub.

    The breakfast was two slices of slightly toasted white bread, a boiled egg, and tea or coffee--not our idea of a meal. Many guests had to stand in the narrow hall and wait for a chair at a shared table. Our twin beds were actually two narrow cots in a narrow shabby room.
