A stones throw from Earls Court Station, the Amsterdam Hotel, London provides uniquely styled rooms and apartments in the heart of one of Londons most pleasant suburbs. It is a three-star hotel with a range of different accommodations to suit every budget, and it is nestled in the centre of Kensington and Chelsea, offering access to all the sights and sounds that famous borough has to offer.
Earls Court itself is one of the more interesting parts of Kensington and Chelsea. While its neighbouring districts in the borough are still defined by their exclusive accommodation and refined attractions, Earls Court has always been slightly more diverse and entertaining than the adjacent areas.
Whilst much of the architecture is of the same period as the stately townhouses of Kensington, successive waves of immigration: Polish after the Second World War, Australians in the 1980s, and Filipinos in the present day, have meant that the area has taken on a slightly more varied feel. Earls Court is a unique bohemian relief from the more staid environments around it.
Not only does it have the Earls Court Exhibition Centre, which houses shows like Crufts and the Royal Tournament, but it also has small gems like The Troubador, a coffee shop which also serves as a small music venue. Artists who have played there include Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, and Elvis Costello.
Earls Court is also home to the UKs last police box, the blue telephone boxes on which the TARDIS from Doctor Who was modelled. Earls Court also offers unparallelled convenience for getting from Heathrow Airport, as there is a direct link along the Piccadilly Line, and also into town, as the Piccadilly Lin continues to Leicester Square and other West End destinations.
The Amsterdam Hotel has 27 rooms, each of which comes equipped with an ensuite bathroom, a flat screen TV, wireless internet access, and tea and coffee-making facilities. Continental breakfast is included in the price of the room. The hotel also offers apartments which have separate seating areas as well as a kitchenette for cooking meals and snacks. The hotel has undergone a recent refurbishment, and there is a 24-hour reception desk, and a lift to all of the different floors.
Being in Earls Court you can very quickly get to South Kensington which houses the Science Museum, the Natural History Musem, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Royal Albert Hall. Or, if you would rather subject your credit card to some punishment the boutiques and department stores of High Street Ken are close by, as it Harrods on Knightsbridge.
The Amsterdam has proved popular with guests because of the superior value for money it offers in such a convenient location. The transport links are excellent, and the hotel is just up the road from the tube station. The bathrooms in some of the rooms are very small, but as a functional, comfortable, convenient hotel, the Amsterdam is difficult to beat, and, whatever you are visiting London for, it might just the solution you are looking for. We must say they are lovely to deal with !!
