Our room was on the fourth floor which did not afford a view but the room itself was very clean. Everything in the room, from bedding to bathroom fixtures felt as though it had just been purchased. The decor was 'modern' and we had a kettle, a small fridge, and a small wall safe, which was handy. There are 5 computers for internet and a cosy gym room with sauna. Breakfast was not included in our arrangements but that was just as well since although they rave about it, it costs15 pounds. If you stay there, just walk down Spear Mews street, which is just one block, and have breakfast at Bench'os for only 5 pounds. They have a wonderful eggs, toast, mushrooms, sausage, and thick sliced ham deal that kept us going until late in the day. They open at 6:30am. The hotel has a laundry service but there is coin laundry down the street if you prefer. (Have a lot of coins!) Tube station in Earls Court was two minutes away by foot. That was a great help. We changed money at the Post Office, just up the street from Bencho's towards Earls Court. They don't charge a fee and give good rates. Masala Zone was right there too, and so drop in if you like Indian. Another reviewer mentioned having gone to the Kabob House which was fantastic so we tried it and agreed. I thought it was all about meat but they have very tasty vegetable dishes too. In all the Hotel was an excellent value and immaculate inside and out. We felt safe and happy and everything we needed was right outside.
