    too many big disappointments”

    I am still staying here, but I am very frustrated and feel the need to share. I chose this hotel because of the location and style. The location is very convenient and I appreciate that (close to subway stations and an easy walk); it is also in a quiet neighborhood which I appreciated. I did love the style and admire the decorating style; so cute! I came here for business and I appreciated the refrigerator and ironing board with iron. I have no complaints with the size of my room as other travelers have indicated. Some things I am disappointed in: I am here in January, and my room is in the basement. It is absolutely FREEZING in my room. Only with 3 portable heaters does it seem tolerable, though I have no more outlets (they did give me an extension cord with other outlets which I appreciated); my second and third night, no hot water which they couldn't fix til the next morning, or I had to move rooms. My phone didn't work to call the front desk. Too many big issues to deal with!

    Good location, nice neighborhood, terrible rooms. Never again. ”

    I arrived very late, close midnight. The first room I was given was at the basement, dirty, with the bed unmade. I had to make a fuss to be given another one. They changed it with one at the ground floor which had no windows. I stayed only because it was already after midnight and I was fed up. None of the rooms I was offered had anything to do with what was shown at the pictures at the time of booking.

    good rooms, good location, good staff

    I stayed 3 nights which was a bit pricey but Earl's Court is close to Chelsea and Kensington. You can walk to the V&A from the hotel and it has some good restaurants in the area. I found the Little French Restaurant had good food and ambiance. The train is very close and you can get snacks at the supermarket near the station.

    Breakfast, location, comfy bed

    We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The breakfast was superb and the location was convenient, just around the corner from the underground. However, I booked a king bed superior room and was given a queen bed. For the price I paid I was disappointed. Also, they were under construction and we were not told this prior to booking.

    Barkston hotel - not bad”

    Location
    I had a room in the basement which was old and not very attractive.

    The hotel is very centrally located near the Natural History Museum, Kensington High Street, Harrods and Hyde Park. It was of reasonable quality, although my room was in the basement and clearly needed some refurbishing. I would probably go back just for convenience if I could not find another hotel in the same area at a competitive price, but otherwise not really.

    Location was superb, very near the tube station right in town. Lots of places to shop and safe. The staff were very helpful.
    The breakfirst spread was a bit sad.

    The staff were very helpful, they provided all the information we wanted. We got upgraded to a family room when we arrived so that was nice. The rooms were a bit shabby, though. The floor boards were creaky and the carpet was stained. The toilet was clean and functional. We were most satisfied with the stay and liked the area very much. Will recommend to friends who are going to London on a budget.

    Going downhill?”

    This hotel has offered me excellent value in the past and I have recommended it to more than one friend for either a business stopover or a base for exploring London as a tourist. I cant do that now but I hope it will sort itself out soon.

    Location is super”

    I had a room in the basement, even I mentioned on remark, I prefer high floor when I made reservation...the room was cold, even I had an electric heater, but didn't help too much....breakfast is simple, but have healthy choices. A little bit disappointed...
