          Reception staff very friendly and efficient. The room was slightly small and moving around from one side of the room to the other was tricky as we had to walk sideways The room and bathroom were very clean and facilities very adequate.

          Recommended to the tourists who want to experience the traditional old British buidings. Clean room and nice housekeepers. 2-minite walk to the tube. Nice location. The only thing is there's some rooms with several stair steps to reach. If you are with big luggege let the receiption know when check-in.

          Convenient central location and great value for money for a single room”

          I was impressed with the location as they are easily accessible from Underground. I arrived very late in the evening but the reception was open and staff friendly and helpful. As a solo traveler I usually find hotels very expensive and feel aggrieved at paying for a twin or double room so it was great to find a single en suite room centrally in London which was affordable and comfortable. Simple furnishings and a little dated but wouldn’t grumble for the price. Room had an extra heater as not double glazed but I didn’t need it in February. I would stay here again

          Having chosen the cheapest room available (double room) we did not expect luxury. The small room was adequate for the price paid. It was compact and clean with everything we needed for a 1 night stay in a great location (5 mins walk from Earls Court tube). The hotel is housed in an old building so the floorboards are creaky (this is not bother us). The staff were very accommodating, storing luggage before check-in and check-out time and the bar lady was eager to please us when we arrived back late (10.30pm) for a few drinks after an evening out. If convenience is key then this hotel is ideal, but if you are paying the cheapest price don't expect anything luxurious.

          Excellent hotel for city trip”

          This hotel was an excellent choice for the city trip with my son. Everything is in close distance, and metro just across the streets. Rooms are comfortable and quite large from a London perspective. great choice!

          Very typical”

          I felt like a seedy salesman in the tiny room, which seemed over crowded with the necessary desk, chair, cupboard, etc but the newly refurbed bathroom was just about ok, though the fittings were pretty cheap. Just a bit average, beige and dull all round.

          Location is good. It is near Earl's Court station. Cross the traffic light from the Earl's Court station exit. Walk to the right and turn left. Staff is friendly.

          Needs Work ”

          I am not quite sure how this hotel achieved 3 stars. The experience at the hotel was not representative of a typical 3 star facility. The highlighted room conditions where the following: dated, de-laminated wallpaper, worn and wrinkled carpet, cracked sink, chipped tub, the door had a vertical crack the length of the door, worn mattresses. Additionally, the hotel stored extra mattresses in the hall and only one of the lifts worked. To add to the experience the WiFi was spotty. The staff was friendly when they were approached by a guest but they seemed more reactive than proactive when it comes to keeping the guests happy. On a positive note the location is excellent for transit and food. I would not recommend the Best Western Burns at the price I was change when there are nicer hotels within a two block radius at the same or slightly above what I paid.

          Will Not Recommend”

          We made quite a last minute booking to stay in this hotel when we decided to head down to London for a night. The location is satisfactory but please keep in mind that this is an extremely basic hotel. The staff are rude and the housekeeping will simply barge into your room with no warning.

          If you're looking for a relatively-low-cost no-frills option with a good location in London then the Best Western Burns Hotel should meet your needs.

          Location clean room and reception staff

          I had a really nice time at Best Western Burs Hotel I must comment on one of the Reception Staff called Theresa who helped me when I could not open my room window especially as my room felt like a sauna She helped me with this matter and even supplied me with a fan The rooms are spotless but my only issue is that on the day of departure the housekeepers were knocking my door really early despite the departure time being 11 am Despite this location of the hotel is really close to the tube and a good way to get around London
