        nothing

        people there were rude, did not contact us about us having to change hotels, made me and my disabled mother walk half an hour to our new "hotel" and didn't refund us or made sure we had the same service we booked for at Olympia. All together a very unpleasant experience. I would definitely not recommend booking a room there.

        Clean room and bathroom, comfy bed

        Hotel fittings warned out and not very clean,no elevator ,extremely hot inside-the worse I have ever head-no air condition facilities in my room-had to sleep with open window-massive street noise,so could not sleep all night.Poor choice of breakfast-no choice really-only flakes and toasts available.Will not go again.

        Center of London, access via tubes brilliant.

      • Group of friends

        The location of the hotel was excellent, and the staff was friendly. The triple room was spacious enough, so also the bathroom; especially the shower space was big enough.

        The wall to wall carpet was in quite bad state, and maybe because of that, there were bedbugs in the room (room 301). Breakfast was very simple, we would have appreciated something like cheese, ham or bacon to go with the toast.

        Location

        Upper floors were extremely hot, no air conditioning.

        Other than letting me move in earlier than the designated check in time and the friendly staff, nothing else!!!!

        Very dirty, noisy and in desparate need of renovation. The bed was deteriorating in front of our eyes, could feel the springs in our backs. Totally not worth the money. Staff was kind though. If you crave for noisy, filthy, expensive and uncomfortable holidays, this is the place for you!!

        Location, is close to the tube, and cheap price.

        Room was very small, and no air con, didnt sleep a wink due to the noise outside and coming from the hotel, there is no lifts either. Bed lining was dirty. TV wasnt working either, room had no phone and took 30 min for someone to come and have a look. I wouldnt stay here again.

        The hotel was near the metro station.

        My both child were bitten badly by bed bugs. There were millions of bed bugs in our room in our bed in our clothes.Terrible, don't stay at this hotel.

        The hotel was very convenient to the Earls Court Station. The 3rd floor room was clean, but rather small. The bathroom was newly remodeled and excellent.The bedding was clean and fresh.

        The beds, when we checked in, were on an incline. We had to rearrange the bedding to sleep with our heads above our feet. (Feet by the headboard).

        The Location was good as was the price.

        It is old and could do with some maintenance and some new furniture.

        Good location near Earls Court tube station

        Very dirty room, bed bugs, bathroom not clean, no shampoo. The phone did not work, even after I told them the first night. Internet basically did not function, and the desk simply said it was working. Definitely a hotel to avoid.

      • Older travelers

        The night clerk was very friendly

        The room was so small that the bathroom door would not fully open do the placement of an armoire. It was so small that there was not a chair. There was no shampoo, no hand towels and we were given an already opened bars of soap. The plumbing was dangerous. It went from hot to scalding, truly dangerous, with a very slight change in shower handle position. There was no a/c and very little ventilation. We arrived with several bags and discovered that there is no lift. We had a room on the first floor, which meant carrying the bags up one floor. No help from the staff. We needed a taxi to the airport and they reserved the taxi. It appeared to be a friend, at a significant charge. There were no taxi markings on the vehicle

        It's close to undergraund.

        I was stung by bugs at the first night!! Next night they give another clean room. So, don't live at room #301.

        GREAT Hotel! Loved the staff, the WiFi is good most of the times, and very clean and close to a Tube Station.

        WiFi not always working properly, but the problem is minor.

        The hotel had great pillows. That is all I can say that I liked about my stay

        You get what you pay for! Plastic paper cups for tea & coffee, no real customer service (I asked for an extra pillow which was never delivered and you'd have thought I was asking for something really hard!) The bed was absolutely awful!
