      Historical Traveler Reviews Oxford Hotel London

      My little gem in London

      from

      I have been coming to the Oxford Hotel for over 10 years, 4 or 5 times a year. It is my home in London. Staff are very friendly, efficient and help to organise theatre tickets, travelcards, taxis, you name it. It is hard to find a hotel anywhere where the staff is permanent and show real care and friendliness. The rooms are spotless clean and I have been in many different rooms both in their annexe and main building. I highly recommend it. I feel as if I was at my own home !

      Not bad if you don't mind

      Hello,

      My wife and I just got back on saturday from a six day trip to London, we stayed at the oxford (Earls Court), for six nights. Our overall opinion is that it has some good things and some bad. We do not know other hotels in London. I kept on searching in internet and here for comments. What I knew is that I wanted something in Earls Court because of the location. I was worried about the reviews but I finally decided to take the risk, since I had ran out of options.

      To start with the rooms, I can say that they are very small. Our room had twin beds, even though I had asked in the reception that I prefered double, they told me that for the first night it wasnīt available. We finally put the two beds together, and we decided not to change room since we were scared of having a worse room. Anyways I checked the bed lining and it seem to be cleam, but it was not changed during the six nights we stayed. The room had a nice Tv, but with out remote. It had a safe deposit, which was nice. It had no closet to hang the cloth, it had only a bar to hang it. The bathroom had a tub and toilet, hot water at any time, wasnīt so bad, and it wasnīt dirty. Our towels were changed every day, they were quite small in size. The heating came on early in the morning then at 17:00 it came back on, we didnīt have cold. In summer I suppose it can be worse since you would have to open the windows and you would hear the Underground speakers. So ask for a room not in that side. That is all about the room.

      About the breakfast it is true that the only thing they have is cornflakes with milk and two french toasts, orange juice (not natural) tea, coffe or chocolate. Very boring having to eat this six times..

      Anyways the attention was not so bad especially for a girl name Chelleda or something like that, she is nice. As I said it is my first experience there, but what is good about the area is the near underground, supermarkets (3), and restaurants. If we go back it will be in the same area, probably another hotel.

      Bye.

      Don't stay here

      from

      As a lecturer I took a group of 19 students to stay at this hotel for 3 nights. It was truly appaling. 13 of the nineteen students are now infected with scabies.

      What seems slightly irrelevant given the lice/scabies problem is that the general level of cleanliness was poor, a member of staff had a mobile phone stolen from their locked room and they managed to create a spectarly bad continental breakfast (Powereed milk?).

      Just dont stay here.

      Bedbugs galore!!!!

      from

      Well the staff was nice alright but the room (3 beds + ensuite shower) we stayed in in Sep/Oct 2004 was shabby and had a weird smell in it. Plus BED BUGS. Being the amateur travellers that we are we didn't notice the bug crap here and there before it was too late..

      To give the manager some credit, he DID return some of the payment..

      So avoid this place unless you have no alternatives...

      Lices

      from

      It was okay. The staff was nice. The cleaninglady took our paper with the bookingnumber for our flight. That wasn't too nice... When we got home, all four of us got lices all over our bodies. So, I guess u understad that I wouldn't recommend it, they have lices in the beds!

      You should try this one.

      from

      We chosed this hotel because it rates were extremely low for London. I thought we could get bad service and a bad room but I was WRONG. The service was exellent. The room comfortable with it's beds and tv, the bathroom was good at London's standars and breakfast couldn't be better. The location was still the main reason we chosed Oxford. It was so near the Earl's Court station, that we could get anywhere, because Earl's Court is a huge station. Plus was also the next house to the hotel, which had no sound effects form the reception. You shouldn't keep your window open in the night either, bacause the callings of the tube station can wake you up.

      You must try this one, really.

      Sincerely yours,

      Good: Not Great, but Acceptable

      from

      We rented two rooms (1 double, 1 single) in mid March 2004. The price was good, breakfast fairly basic but okay (I don't know why they bother with that "fruit" juice - blechh). The good: price, location, clean, friendly staff The bad: the double bed was horribly squeaky. One night we just started laughing our heads off because we couldn't do anything about it and didn't have the energy to complain or switch rooms! Very small, but hey - this is London. You could do worse. And we have!

      "Talk about being close to the tube"

      from

      We stayed here in Sept 2002, I liked the hotel but breakfast was pretty boring, some rolls and corn flakes but the staff was very helpful and nice we had a room in the annex--about 3 doors down from the main hotel. The drawback is that this is right next to Earls Ct Tube and you can hear the announcements all the time --note the tube goes until about 12Mid and starts at about 6am so that wasnt to good especially the 1st night when we go to bed early after being up all day. I have stayed at many dif hotels in the Earls CT area and I probably wouldnt stay here only becuz of the tube sounds but the room was nice and so was the staff.

      Very good experience

      from

      We return yesterday from London to Spain and all my friends and me are very happy with the hotel. The situation of the hotel is really goods, just near the underground and in a good zone.We could return walking at night from South Kesington to the hotel without problem The relation betwing the price and the quality is really good. The rooms are a litle small but very clean. All the days they changes the towels. The staff of the hotel have been during all the time very good.

      Not recommended

      from

      We connected with this place via BHRC at Heathrow. We were charged 75 pounds a night + 5 pounds reservation fee. At BHRC website the room rate was less, even for a triple room which we were assigned apparently because there were no twins left. The bedroom did have 3 beds, but no chair or table. Breakfast was a zoo, too little space. We had the most tasteless bread rolls we have ever eaten. 2 slices of toast and a plate of corn flakes. OJ and coffee were adequate.

      Minimalist, except for the price, was how we would describe the whole experience. We were very disappointed in this taste of the "Hospitality" industry in London. Never again.

We all loved seeing Queen Mary's Doll's House, were we learnt that everything inside in miniature was in full working order, including the lights and the plumbing. We then went through the State Apartments and saw some amazing things- the china room with dinner services dating back to the 17th century, the majestic St ...

Hamley’s really is a fun experience and brings out the kid in everyone……..however, it’s not a place you’d want to be at Christmas or school holidays!!

It was quite an eye opener to see what Florence had to put up with and the many challenges that she had to put up with during her lifetime. Leaving the museum we headed back to the hotel but detoured once again and had afternoon tea in the church come museum and cafe near the hotel. Then we made it back to the hotel. (no photos ...
