Great value for money
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I booked a one bedroom apartment for 3 nights.
My apartment was very well appointed, with lots of creature comforts.
The bathroom was extremely hot and very small, but that the only negative thing I can say.
The morning breakfast tray was much appreciated.
The apartments are very close to shops, Earless Court Tube station and Gloucester Road Tube station.
I will certainly book again next trip.

Great value, comfort, location

Ideal location off a lovely square and on a block of townhouses, including several other small hotels. Two blocks to tube, easy to get everywhere. Many small, good, neighborhood pubs and restaurants as well as a store to buy groceries and prepared foods. Helpful 24-hour desk staff. We stayed in a one-bedroom, which provided privacy for my young adult daughter and I -- queen bed in bedroom and fold out single bed in living room. Flat screen TVs in each room. Complete, compact kitchen. Although there is more than enough room, closet space, etc our rooms were a bit smaller than they appeared in the photos and the finishes were not particularly high end. That said, this was exceptional value for the money and we will definitely return. Free and good quality internet.

It is nice to stay in an apartment style hotel, in a lovely location but...

It's hard to know what to say about our stay here. There is a lot of truth to the good and not-so-good in the other reviews.Yes, it’s quirky, and a bit dated, but not run down or “scary”. Overall, I suppose I recommend this hotel and might even return, when I come to London again and am looking for this type of hotel in this part of the city. I am not sure what the other options are, so I cannot say this for sure. Our biggest issue was with the washing machine.It did not work, and we had to take our wet clothes with us when we checked out. The rooms are also a bit odd in their aesthetic, but they were clean, and quiet, and the beds comfy which is what matters most, isn't it? Although, I must say--the bed my hubby and I slept in was lovely, my daughters slept in the pullout couch and it was not as comfy. We felt safe, and the location is very handy.

Great stay

I had mixed reviews prior to arrival and I was concerned about how the staff would greet us. I had nothing to worry about, all front desk and house keeping staff were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were of a very good size and beds whilst firm were still comfortable. 3 minute walk to Earls court tube station and down the road from a pub that serves great ale and steak pie. Great for families as it is in a safe area.
