    Appartment was clean upon arrival

    - Staff was not really friendly or helpful - There was a Koran but no holy Bible!! - Card system did not work and was not fixed during the 4 days I was there, had to go to bank and pay in cash - Towels and bedroom sheets were not cleaned during stay - soap box was empty - Receptionist did not seem to be interested in his job, forgot to give back plastic cards (Price +- 20p) upon departure and the receptionist followed us until the station to ask it back ...

    The location in Earl's Court is excellent, also the apartment was very comfortable and there was plenty of space for 4 of us sharing a 2 bedroom apartment.

    The staff were extremely unhelpful. During our stay their credit card machine was out of order so they asked us to pay in cash. This was very inconvient for us as we didn't have loads of cash and had to make a couple of trips to the atm. The owners weren't even apologetic over this.

    Convenience of location and facilities.

    We had problems with the door access the keys not being primed correctly.

    Modern decor, clean room, good location - we were at concert at Earls Court, short walk back!

    Beds okay, could have been more comfy. Walls needed a lick of paint (we stayed basement room B02).

    the apartment was a good size and the location was very good. 3 minute walk to earls court underground station and 10 minute walk from the Natural History Museum. The area was nice and clean and so was the hotel.

    A step in the apartment was broken and had a crack in it, which caused my daughter to have a fall. However this was fixed promptly after I reported it. The price of which The apartment cost for the stay was not the price I booked it for and it cost me an extra £40 when it came to paying the bill. I dont know why this was and the receptionist seemed genuinly confused about it also when i showed her my booking confirmation.

    Location

    The rooms are in desperate need of repair -- heaters work very poorly, shower head falls off, kitchen elements are missing (eg no forks). Over the weekend there's no one round besides front desk person meaning that there are very few requests they can satisfy.

  • Family with children
    6.4

    The check-out time was at 11:00 am even though it said 11:00 to 11:30 am on the confirmation. The aparthotel wanted to charge us half a day price when we requested for a one hour later check-out time. There was only one card key provided. In addition, we cannot use the card key to open main door of the building and had to rely on the staff inside to open it for us.

    The hotel was really in a great location. The staff were very friendly & helpful. The rooms were cleaned every day. I would certainly use it again. It was very close to the tube & other services. Wi-fi was terrific too.

    The apartment was a little hot but by turning off the heating it was o.k. There were builders working on a building nearby which were a little noisy but bearable.

    No value for money! The worst hotel I have ever been to for 20 years of travelling! Upon arrival at 11 pm we bumped with a fetid dirty room with many bags of two or three days-long waste food around the room, with dirty coffee cups all over the apartment, with full unavailability of staff to do anything, at least apologise immediately. On the next morning we did not get any apologies too! They communicated with us as with people who made them suffer. The rooms we visited were just in awful conditions - dirty stained sofas and armchairs, jagged tables and bed-side tables, dirty walls, grey from the dust curtains. The fotos they have provided the site with had been made several years ago, more than three years for sure. We would like to get a refund and got the offer of 20% discount off the rate of the booked room for the first night, though we slept in worse and cheaper room. A way of behaviour of Nadej, a small so-called "manager", was unacceptable. She refused to communicate, hang up the phones, refused to connect with a senior manager. To speak with any "manager" personally was impossible - all the "management" seats in a different building. We left after the first night having no refund and apology from the management, and found a lovely apartment just 10 minute walk away in South Kensington, closer to Natural History Museum and Victoria and Albert Museum, underground station, for almost the same rate with excellent rooms and very good service.

    Good location, as its a short walk from Earl's Court Tube station. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby. The apartment was well laid out, neat and tidy. The apartment was cleaned every day, which is very good. WiFi is free as well.

    The staff at the reception, while being friendly were uninformed. If you ask any question out of the ordinary, they would say "I'll get back to you after I check with the manager". The manager would only work normal office hours at a different hotel. Add to that poor English language skills of the staff, it leads to frustration. The water pressure was very bad, while using hot water. On day 4, it took 10 mins to get hot water in the shower, after turning the shower on. Looks like the boiler is not sized properly for simultaneous use across the ApartHotel. The WiFi would connect well on laptop, but not so well on phone or iPad. This indicates they have a cheap low powered WiFi router.

    Great location. Comfortable and convenient. Vastly superior to a hotel for a longer stay.

  • Family with children
    6.2

    We found the rooms to be OK, quiet and adequate for our purposes.

    The rooms are not well equipped in the kitchen and the sofa bed which we asked to use was pretty basic. WE booked the room via ooking.com but were called by the hotel to say the apartment we had booked was not available. They offered an alternative but this has never happened before with Booked.net

    I loved the cleanliness. The people: Pedro, Mark, Prakash, Kasha and Mike. The location is outstanding. Apartments are very comfortable.

    Nothing. Everything was great.

    Good location, near public transport. Clean and tidy with a daily maid service.

    Noisy water pipes. Finish seemed rushed as not all the good. Staff didn't know every worked (eg the couldn't explain how to work the room safe). Main room very warm even with the heater off.
