Just in case you're about to try it, don’t sleep only for 2 hours immediately before a 16 hour flight. It’s really not the best experience ever. So, needless to say, our first day in London was especially... blurry; in more ways than one.
The flight was pretty standard and nothing really stands out. Flying is one of those …
I do not know if it is my age, or the fact that I had spent so long on a plane on Friday, but the 14 hour flight to London was one of the toughest flights I have ever taken. By the time we finally collapsed into our Base2Stay hotel in Kensington I felt too exhausted even to eat. This morning I felt much more civilised after a decent 7 hours of …
We will be sad to say goodbye to London in the morning! We have been surprised by how much we have enjoyed it. Even Christie says they have enjoyed it this time, when they did not enjoy it that much the first time they visited here. It has been surprisingly warm...and we've had just a touch of drizzle one time for about an hour and then this …
Gosh, another big day...I begin to worry that I'm writing the great American novel...but I guess I'm not actually forcing anyone to read it, right? We woke up this morning in our wonderful hotel in Brussels, and according to plan we headed to our included breakfast before heading to the train station to catch the Eurostar train to London by way of …
Woke up with the news of gale force winds in Scotland, did I leave something at home, how long would it take me to get there, can I hire windsurfer? All easy to organise but how I would have to explain this to Julie - I think I will forget this plan. Plus having to much fun being a tourist.
We caught 4 trains to Portobello markets, on the map …

Historical Traveler Reviews base2stay Kensington London
Just returned from 1 night at Base2stay. Had booked a single room but was upgraded to a superior on arrival. Review may have been different had I been allocated a single which I understand can be quite small. Helpful and pleasant staff and a clean, well equipped room. Hotel very well located just a few minutes walk from Earls Court tube and M&S for food to cook in room. Hotel great for business travel. Staff trying very hard at the moment. Key to future success wil be whether they can keep up the high standard of decor and equipment along with reasonable prices when the hotel has been in operation for some time. I'd go now. It represents very good value.
I simply booked this hotel because I wanted to try what they claim to be a new concept, I am a french freelance journalist (UK based) working in the airline industry and it is clear that this company is spending a lot of money, morethan required in PR- The same technique easyjet used to launch the their first low cost flight to Geneva. I wanted to find out what the whole thing is all about.
When I booked base2stay I wasn't sure what to expect, all I knew was it is a new hotel design concept. Even though I checked-out the website, I remained apprehensive. I very quickly upon checking in realised there was no need to be concern. The staff at reception showed all the professional qualities you will expect from well trained staff. The check in process took less than 2 minutes and I was told everything about the hotel even before I arrived to my room. I was asked by Khatuna/Vinnay (if I remember right from the name badges)?? if i would like help with my luggage.
My girlfriend and i visited base2stay hotel 18-22nd May for a long weekend for my birthday.We chose to stay at base2stay after reading the numerous good reviews and was not dissapointed.the hotel is a 4 star and looks to have undergone a refurbishment recently all done very well.We stayed in a standard room we managed to get for £100 per night (not including breakfast).It had a great big modern bathroom large lcd tv and the best bit an absolutly massive bed that has got to be the most comfiest ever slept in, which is what you need after a tiring day around london.the staff are friendly but not intrusive. Staff knew what they are there for and we had excellent service from the point of checking in to when we departed. The hotel is aprox 4 minutes from earls court tube station which gets you any where you want to go. its also cheap to eat round earls court if you are on a budget.
Base2Stay - great value
We have just had a nigt at Base2stay in Earls Court, for £89.00 it is great value. The rooms are clean, modern, well furnished with a good size bath/showerroom. Kitchenette is a good idea but sadly no coffee or tea bags provided. Good location close to buses and tubes. Will definately return on next London trip.
We come from Honduras. We stayed for 5 nights @ base2stay hotel and we were very impressed by what I got for the price I paid. The room cost us £99 a nights and for that, we got a room better than what we usually get in most four star hotels. 32'' LCD Screen, 6ft bed, fantastic shower room with power shower that gave me and my wife a good massage. Everything is new and we got very good service. The staff are efficient and friendly, breakfast comes in a box, but for 4.95£ we were happy, and it was also delivered to our room door. The rooms are spacious for London and we are very surprised with how clean our room was. All the things are nicely presented. We went to the local store to buy some food and it was so nice to have the feeling of home. There is also a clever kitchenette system. We use the TV internet for free. We are very pleased with our stay and we will definitely book this hotel again when we come back to London. I also like the area very much.
I always like to try new hotels so when I read about base2stay in the Toronto Globe and Mail, I thought I'd try it on my next trip to London. It sounded too good to be true for the price. It didn't start off well when my first email went unanswered. But that's the sort of thing that you can forgive in a new hotel. However, my arrival was handled politely and efficiently. The room wasn't huge (I'd booked a single) but was brand new and sleek with everything you'd expect in a more expensive and bigger hotel room - air conditioning, flat screen TV, desk, broadband internet (you have to pay, but internet on the TV is free), and - halleluiah! - enough plugs for all my equipment without having to pull out the bedside light - a first! I'd forgotten my iPod, so the discovery of a music "library" via the TV was an unexpected bonus. I rarely use room service (usually too expensive). However their alternative of a kitchenette looked like a good idea, though I only used it for a morning cup of tea, as I'd ordered their breakfast box - another good idea. There was a fantastic shower, which I didn't expect in London and a surprising amount of space to hold my toilet kit in a bathroom that felt much larger than it actually was.
Sorry for my English, but I'm from Italy. I stayed for 4 nights at base2stay hotel with my girlfriend. The room wasn't very big but it was beautiful : we had a 32" philips lcd tv in front of the bed, a little fridge, a microvawes oven, spoons, kinifes...etc.. You can also use a fast internet connection on the TV ( 15 min. are free then if you want to use longer you have to pay). The bathroom and the shower were simply perfect! The shower box is very big! (i took a shower togheter with my girlfriend!). Everything is very very clean (the hotel is new).
I stayed three nights at the Base2Stay in May '06 by myself. Since I was traveling on my own, I was initially supposed to stay at a friend's house, but due to some scheduling problems it didn't work out - so I had to book a hotel. I decided to give Base2Stay I shot even though (or because) it was a new hotel and the descriptions on their website were promising - e.g., all rooms are equipped with a kitchenette featuring a microwave, a flat screen TV, a power shower, FREE 2MB internet access, and air cond. And the price wasn't THAT bad for London (considering the amenities), £71 per night for a single room.
