Earls Court also has some good nightlife options, including the historic Troubadour Cafe and The Finborough Theatre, where up and coming playwrights stage their work.
Earl's Court tube is an ideal hub, from which to explore the city, as it provides easy access to both Heathrow and the West End. The station services both the District and Piccadilly lines. The District line will take you to Paddington Station for the Heathrow Express train, or you can access Heathrow directly via the Piccadilly line. You also have a direct link to King's Cross St Pancras Station where the Eurostar terminus is located and Victoria Station, where you can catch the Gatwick Express Train.
Simply decorated, serviced daily, all bedrooms are ensuite and conveniently offer the amenities you actually need, including colour TV, a direct dial telephone, hair dryer, central heating, tea and coffee making facilities and electric shaver points. A safety deposit facility is also available. The West Cromwell may be a smaller hotel, but this serves to enhance the intimate experience, along with the helpful and courteous staff that aims to ensure that your stay at the hotel is a memorable and pleasant one.
Continental breakfast is served daily in the hotel's breakfast room. Kensington is a short journey away and is home to a host of restaurants, offering differing cuisines to suit any appetite. The area's multi-cultural community means there is a range of unique eateries offering authentic dishes, such as Mohsen and Reza Patisserie, which offer Iranian meals and cakes, Timo is an elegant Italian restaurant and Memories of China offers upmarket Chinese fare.
For a low cost hotel, this is a great place to stay, which could do with some attention to detail in rooms, but for the price travellers on a budget may be willing to overlook this. If you are staying here, be sure to choose a room away from the main road if you want a quiet night's sleep.
