... bags and was a reasonable walk there and back, so we decided to take the easy way out. The driver was just great and very obliging. When we go there, he parked in the street along side it, I got out and took my photos and he even took one with us in. Then it was off to the airport. Total Taxi fare around 19€, cheaper than the bag storage fee. The flight was around 90 mins and was uneventful except for the fact my legs played up. I ...
... there that day and apparently will be until the end of April. We saw the changing of the guard which was quite confusing with all guardsmen wandering about, we needed some kind of explanation to really understand it. There was a Military band who played some beautiful music during it, they played It's a wonderful world and something else which sounded fantastic. They were very impressive and I'm not sure if they do that every day or only when the Queen is ...
... Mistake. Big time. We got to the station with plenty of time to spare but the train ended up breaking down at the next stop. We, along with about six or seven hundred other people, had to make our way off the train, down a narrow flight of stairs, up a narrow flight of stairs and on to a new platform to wait for a new train. The new train that showed up was already packed with about the same number of people that was on our train. Needless to say we were squished ...
... of wind that turned my umbrella inside out. I managed to get it back the right way in time for the wind to pop it back the other way breaking the frame. So I chucked the umbrella, I wasn't the only one that had to, by the time I was heading back to the tube station there was a nice pile in front of the garbage can of broken umbrellas. But my waterproof converse held up beautifully, my feet were really the only thing that got back ...
... different. Longer on top, combed over stylishly with gel. Second, they don't seem to care or even notice if they take the last seat on the train, or push you out of the way to get onto the train before the doors close. And, there are a lot more men in suits here. With the hair and the suit, I can pick out a local man. Speaking of men, I met an Italian man named Eduardo today. We were both eating ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Lily London - Kensington/Earl's Court
Before traveling to the Lily hotel, my partner and I checked the reviews on this website and were shocked by what some people wrote, as you can imagine we expected the worst!!!
Stayed here and although not the Ritz, we didn't pay Ritz price either. Sheets clean, room clean, staff helpful and obliging. Don't be put off by the bad reports. If you are on a budget, then this hotel is okay and handy for travel into inner London.
I booked this due to its proximity to Earls Court. Big mistake! I'd rather walk the length of the country to get to Earls Court than ever stay here again.
Just went to check the reviews for Hotel Lily for fun and noticed it seems like nothing has changed.
I stayed at this hotel in September 04 and I have to say that I was quite satisfied with the room I had. It was clean, and the bedding was good, as was the bed itself. The facilities in the room all worked well, and the tea and coffee was replaced daily. The bathroom was clean and, although the shower rail was a bit wonky, it didn't spoil anything for me. I enjoyed the breakfast as well, it was plentiful, and although I never asked for any more, I know that other guests did, and the staff were more than willing to oblige. The service at breakfast was quick as well! Most of the staff appeared to be from Eastern Europe and some only spoke limited English, but they were friendly enough and tried to be as helpful as they could. For a cheap hotel, it is certainly good value in my opinion.
Not very clean
I stayed at the hotel lily from the 11 dec 04 to the 12 dec 04 I found the room was very small and there was only 2 towels in the room I went down to reception to ask what the night life was like around that area and where the best place is to go clubbing I had to wait 10 minutes before anyone spoke to me and then I could not understand what they were saying. The breakfast was terrible and I felt very ill after eating it. The decorating in the pics are nothing like what they are showing, the bar area was closed so there was no where for me or my friends to relax and chill out the bedding was not up to scratch I would not recommend HOTEL LILY in LONDON to anybody even though it is suppose to be cheap all i say is it is CHEAP AND DIRTY
Great bugdet hotel
I stayed in lily hotel with my husband recently and can not understand what people are complaining about
the hotel has been refurbished and the reception looks great
staff were very friendly and I found it very convenient for earls court
great breakfast and free car parking is a big bonus in London
Wow, I stayed at this hotel 5 years ago in 1999 and I can see from the few reviews on here that nothing has changed.
Unqualified to be a hotel
We found Lily hotel through travel agent. Lily hotel's photo looks good, but inside was horrible.
The toilet was old, broken & spread bad smell all the time.
For the same price, actually could have a much better hotel in London.
My friends & I were regreted to stay in that hotel for 7 nights, (no way we paid in advance).
I will highly recommand my fans, never & ever choose this Lily.
Well what can I say!!! This hotel was the worst ever. The pictues advertised is nothing like the hotel. Pics show large reception which was tastefully decorated in gold and cream with large leather sofas. In reality, the reception was blue, approx 10 ft square and dirty. The rooms were small, the advertised cocktail bar has been shut for months, therefore nowwhere to unwind and have a drink and the dining room smelt of damp.
