    Location

    It is very expensive for a small room and not even an English breakfast is available. The internet is a rip off. I paid eight pound for 4 hrs but in the evening and morning a could not access their Wi-Fi, so nor refunds for less use.

    Breakfast was good. If you talk to the right person (day staff), quite flexible on room arrangements. Location is great, very close to Earl's Curt tube.

    Area of the corridor to the room is very dirty and worn down, really need some renovation. Room cleanliness is minimal. Night staff - alarm set for 5am did not go through, tried to get something simple to takeaway for breakfast at 5:30am (in lieu of breakfast which is included) - this is too much for them.

    Very good

    The location was very convenient, quiet enough for a good night's sleep. The room was as small as expected, but practical and the breakfast room was clean and bright.

    The hotel could do with some more variety in the breakfast buffet and an air extractor in the bathroom. Also, the bed had some strange plastic protector under the sheets which I understand is for hygiene purposes, but was simply horrible!

    Superb

    Good size & adequate twin room for short stay. Can't comment on breakfast as didn't have time to have it. Would definitely stay again at £63/night

    On morning of check-out (a good 11am) the maid knocked & tried to enter the room at 9am! Too early for maid service on any day (sometimes a sleep-in is required) and not required on a check-out day. I didn't see a "do not disturb" sign to put outside, but equally did not expect a 9am "wake-up call".

    Exceptional

    The hotel is in an excellent location, close to the tube and plenty of pubs and restaurants around. The rooms were clean.

    The rooms are small. The hotel is very old and needs a serious refurbishment. The breakfast was poor. Shame running a hotel in such a poor condition in this excellent location.

    City Continental London Kensington staff was very unfriendly. Be careful with deposit, if you will lose your receipt - you will not get your money back.

    The room size and bathroom facilities were adequate. The hotel is on a quiet street near reasonable restaurants in Earls Court.

    The room was a little shabby.

    Very good

    Good value for money, excellent standard for the price of room, hotels staff friendly and efficient. Great location and perfect for a few nights stay to be in the London area.

    The breakfast was basic and breakfast room small, some people were left waiting for a table. The cleaning staff used the lifts in the morning, which meant we had to use the stairs, they did not seem sympathetic to the fact we had been waiting for the left to see it full of laundry and cleaners.
