    The Blackbird served dishes within 300 metres off the hotel. Easy access to London City airport, within 20 km. Good choice for weekend in London

    Perfect

    Great location being close to the Earl's Court Tube station and in a beautiful neighborhood close to stores and restaurants. My room was very clean, the breakfasts were nice and the front desk most helpful. I'd recommend it to everyone.

    comfortable mattress-quiet environment-central location-near the metro station

    if I have to find a drawback... the lack of electrical outlets near the bedside table!

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Room with 2 single beds, comfortable mattresses, kettle available for making tea and coffee and then the good thing is that the hotel is located 200 meters from the metro station earl's court.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Comfortable location, small but clean room, free wi-fi, staff always available and courteous. I was able to do the early check-in and on request there is available a luggage room if you have the flight in the evening. By English standards it's more than fine.

    It's hot in the bedroom and the window is stuck. The elevator is as if it were not there, it works badly, it is always occupied by the staff and it is microscopic. But I've seen worse in London

  • 7.8
    Very good

    Great location if you want to get around central London. Quiet, free wifi, good for staying 1 or 2 nights.

    The hotel is a little bit old

  • 8.2
    Great

    Excellent hotel, considering the quiet area in which it is located, the proximity to the metro station that allows you to easily reach any part of the city and the presence of good restaurants nearby.

    A little dated furniture

  • 8.2
    Great

    Clean and quiet rooms, very comfortable bed and pillows. Perfect location, a few steps from the subway.

    Hotel looks old.

  • 8.2
    Great

    Great location close to Earl's Court subway station, convenient to get to downtown. Cozy and clean facility. Continental breakfast and on request english breakfast with eggs, bacon, sausage, mushrooms and tomatoes. Free luggage storage. Small but comfortable room.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Amazing location 300 m from the Earls Court stop. Very quiet area and full of clubs. Great breakfast, very friendly and helpful staff, especially Elisa the girl at the reception and the boys in the breakfast room.

    Too hot in the room, even without radiators. Small room, it's ok as for London but I expected smth more in a best western. Too old window fixtures that let the cold pass at night. To tell the truth, I reported the problem to the reception and it was, as far as possible, partially solved

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The close proximity to the Earls Court tube station. Very friendly and helpful staff who booked me in though I arrived early, which was really convenient. Good value for money
