Historical Traveler Reviews K+K Hotel George London
My husband and I just returned from a week in Europe and spent a majority of our time at this hotel. The rooms are small, but that is typical is Europe. Everything was extremely clean. The bathroom was spotless. The down comforters felt like home. The only downfall is that there is not an alarm clock in the room, but they are very prompt with their wake up calls.
Breakfast was great in the morning and the front desk/reception/concierge was terrific. They all bent over backwards for us.
The Tube stop is relatively close - about a block away. And it's a major station with several trains. Restaurants in the area are plentiful.
We plan to stay here on our next trip to London. Great place to stay!
An excellent hotel--superb service, first-rate breakfast, and very pleasant rooms. Highly recommended.
Stay was excellent! Got a great deal on expedia, definitely worth the price. The room and bathroom was very clean, and the breakfast was wonderful, but a bit pricey. Location is great. A couple minutes walk to Earl's Court tube station, which is a good station to catch trains from many different lines. Would definitely stay there again.
Not much effort
Arrived with some friends of mine, My room was OK but the bright lights faced my window and it was brighter than day light at night, I got sick for 3-days there, not much concern! They screwed my friends stay pretty much, messed up his room and didnt help much if any, we will be back in the UK -but certainly not there, the rooms were like dorm rooms!!
What a big mistake
just arrived- no welcome drink- no room set up- i have paid for a triple and a double - got a single and a twin- changed rooms - sleep four hours - they called me and wanted me to change back to a double they wanted 350.00 american to give me a roll away - im now sleeping on the floor and I will never come here again- what ***** to change my room 3 times in 8 hours- my wife is sick with 102 temp - screw this place- what ********- i wont even go back to the uk again ray barry
Stayed here just last week! The room is small but very very clean especially the bathroom! Concierge was great! (thank you James!) Breakfast was immaculate and very hearty! Get a good start in the morning by eating here! It has individual tempurture control, plenty of channels to watch, mini bar, small safe, convenient computer access, and two blocks from Earl's Court. Down the street from the hotel (stand in front of the hotel, it's the street going foward and on the left) there is Boots the Chemist, KFC, Earl's Court, ATMs, photo developing, McDonalds, Nando's, etc. It is a little out of the way for touring but for the price, it's great! I will be back next year here only! NO REGRETS AT THIS HOTEL!
Affordable AND nice
A hotel that was affordable AND nice. Got a good rate on expedia. Would definitely stay again. Located close to Earls Court Station where 2 subway lines go. Bus stop also nearby. In a quiet street. Small room (which is normal for London). Clean not stuffy. Loved the huge towels!
Free internet in the lobby is great. Wonderful breakfast buffet but not included in all rates. Porter service slow.
Inexpensive -- but Cheap Too
Neighborhood is out of the way and shabby, but quite safe. Rooms are rather shabby as well; very spare; reminiscent of a dormatory, down to the tacky Scandanavian Modern furniture. Little closet or drawer space. Cleanliness varies. Staff efficient and well-trained, but not warm or welcoming. Breakfast was excellent -- good thing with London food prices so high. A fair to good value overall, but neither comfortable nor convenient. If you can pay a bit more (or significantly more), try elsewhere -- but London isn't a bargain anywhere.
We spent 8 nights at the K & K Hotel George in Feb.- March 2003. Every staff person we encountered was extremely helpful and professional. One evening one of the computers with free internet access refused to function, and the reception staff woman remarked to us, "This is so embarrassing!" The lobby lounge was always busy, with international visitors enjoying beer, wine, tea and coffee. Our twin room, though small, was spotless, and with its balcony, overlooked a quiet residential street. Big fluffy towels, on a warming rack, greeted us every day, and the bathroom was squeaky clean. Included in the room charge was a plentiful breakfast buffet, where the attention to detail was characteristically wonderful. We hope to return again!
Out of the way, but pretty nice!
K+K George was nice and stylish. It is all the way out at Earls Court, but the tube is just down the way. Featherbed and pillows were a nice touch, room is small by anything other than London standards, but the windows were big, overlooking a private garden. I even saw a fox in there one morning!
Free breakfast is pretty good but seems to cater to American tastes. I could have done with some black pudding, for example, and there was none.
There were several American teens staying at the hotel who had very poor table manners, all seemed to grip their forks like hammers and loved to speak with full mouths. They also made sport of running about the property shouting at all hours. This however, can not be blamed on the hotel.
All told, I think the George represents pretty good value. I just wish it was one or two tube stops closer to the action.

After an easy flight we had to experience a merciless customs line at Heathrow. Good thing we had this waiting for us at the hotel.

It turned out that he was only interested in having a last-minute cigarette, but he was prevented from boarding the aircraft. We are safe from dangerous nicotine addicts, to my relief.
