    Worst Hotel of the trip

    Where do I start, hotel room smallest of the trip, with the bath room so small that I couldn't turn around without opening the door. Then there was the bed, I checked in and the bed was not made, so had to make it myself and when I went to bed I found the springs from the mattress were sticking into me. At that point I had to put more padding between the mattress and me, ok the food or breakfast disappointed would be the best way to put it.

    Great Stay

    from

    We stay at the Comfort Inn in July 2004 and had a great stay. The tube was just around the corner which made it really easy to get to. Our room was small but very nice. We were able to make tea in the room and the continental breakfast was wonderful. We got a very warm welcome. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would really recommend this hotel.

    Needs a re-vamp

    from

    Stayed here with my husband and daughter. Room was very cramped. Shower squirted water all over bathroom except where you wanted it to go. Expected double bed for myself and husband but no way was it a double.

    On the plus side the location is great and staff were good.

    Could do with a make over!

    Very good choice

    from

    I spent three night in this hotel, from 28 to 31 of may 2004 and it has been a great choice. Two minutes from the tube, a lot of pub, shops, great breakfast and the right price.

    Only one problem, no air condition in our room, but London is not so sunny!

    All the hotel staff is polite and very kind.

    Just what the doctor ordered

    from

    I`d booked the hotel before I`d read any reviews and i have to say arrived there fearing the worst. The hotel was cheap and cheerful .The rooms clean and the staff brilliant.Now dont get me wrong its not the savoy but I was taking my 3 year old son there and he discribed it as beautiful and kids dont lie.If your looking for faults you`ll find them.If your looking for value for money you can`t go wrong.

    Good stay

    from

    After reading these previous reviews, my boyfriend and I decided to stay elsewhere. Which turned out to be an error on our behalf.

    We decided to look into the Comfort Inn and give it a try, despite these reviews. Apparently, this hotel has been remodeled since these reviews. We found it to be clean, bright and a fair deal.

    We were extremely satisfied with our room. Although it was a bit small (which, from what I am told, is not uncommon in these hotels), the room was clean, bed was comfortable, bathroom was a good size and bright.

    Staff was very accomodating. We arrived well before check in and we were able to store our luggage in a locked room so we could venture out prior to check in and not worry about our belongings.

    Breakfast was continental, but fresh and constantly stocked.

    Overall, we intend to return to this hotel in the near future.

    Awful, poorly decorated shabby room and mould in bathroom

    from

    The room was small and very cramped, it smelt very musty and the bathroom was awful mould and cracked tiles - would not recommend this to anyone.

    Not serious with reservations

    from

    I booked a triple room (two adults, 1 child), 3 months in advance, (on the 6th September) for 3 days starting the 5th of December. The 2nd December (3 days before my departure) I was called to tell me that there was not such a triple room. Instead I was offered a room ¡in Gatwick or Heathrow town!. When I asked for a room in central London, I was offered to choose between ¡3 separated single rooms or one double room + another separate single one!. After not accepting any of this solutions, I had to agree with a triple room in a hotel in the north (travel zone 4) quite a long journey to were I wanted to stay (Earls Court, west zone 1), adding time, money and inconvenience to our short stay. No more comments.

    Very small rooms

    from

    We stayed here in 1/01. Very small room, poorly decorated. Neighborhood was ok - spent little time in room or hotel. Felt safe on the way to the hotel at night. Breakfast was good. Had one evening meal there and it was not special.

    Disgusting

    from

    We stayed at this dump for one night in May 2002. This place was in a shady neighborhood with hoodlums roaming the streets, the carpeting was so dirty I couldn't believe my eyes, the walls had stains on it, the shower doors were falling off. The blankets and sheets had holes in them. We were there only for one night as we were passing through from Paris back to the states so we didn't bother to change hotels. And it was the most expensive hotel of our entire European trip, to boot! The only slightly positive thing was that it was so close to the underground. But it happens to be the most annoying underground station to navigate that we encountered. All in all this place was the most memorable for the most horrific reasons. I felt like Comfort Inn should have been paying US to stay there. It was awful.

After taking in the city for a while longer, we happened on a sign pointing to Buckingham Palace. So we stopped by to see the Queen (ok not really we just saw the outside), but we did get to see some of the famous Buckingham Palace Guards. We then stopped for dinner and ...

Unfortunately we didn't find out since after waiting a bit, we were quiet a bit bored of waiting, and saw no resolution to the events any time soon.

    It is also important to remember that one of the major constituents of your total budget for the London trip is the cost of your air tickets especially if you are staying thousands of miles away. As such, it is important to look for ...

    After nearly three hours we had exhausted the market and decided to visit the Brand and Advertising Museum, which was only a block away from Portobello Road.

    Walking to the museum took us through some beautiful streets in nearby Notting Hill.

    The museum has an extraordinary collection of over a hundred years of packaging and marketing ...
