            Really close to Earls Court expo centre and of course the tube station. The rooms we stayed in were just renovated. Breakfast was ok.

            The hotel was under renovations the whole time, there was plastic and white dust everywhere.

          • Group of friends
            8.2

            Helpfull staff. Comfortable beds, great breakfast.rooms are small but ok and had a lot of trouble getting key to work

            7.4

            The hotel was conveniently placed for my visit to PHEX at Stamford Bridge.

            Very basic accomodation, and no digital TV.

          • Family with children
            4.6

            The location of the hotel is good - very easy access to Heathrow via the tube station, which is just around the corner, a short walk away from the hotel.

          • Family with children
            8.8

            la ubicación (al lado del metro y autobuses, en dos paradas estas en el centro), el precio, el trato

            no hay armario ni cajones y la sala del desayuno, se llena rápidamente y hay que esperar

            5.4

            Location was ok.

            Breakfast was not the way it was described at hotels website. There was no reading light in the room. Carpet was very squeaky in the corridores which woke me up during the night. Noises from the basement (kitchen?) could be heard in the first floor.

            Its location

            The cleaniless and the bathroom with the mildew, brrrr...

          • Group of friends
            5.4

            I liked the staff and the red carpet as you came in through the front door. Not much else.

            I didn't enjoy staying there. The corridors felt like a hostel and the room was small and like student accommodation. I was upgraded to a double room and I am glad I was because the double-bed was not much wider than a single.

          • Single
            5.0

            It was close to the conference centre I was attending

            The room was dingy, windowsills were dirty, the bed had a very old mattress and you could feel the springs through. It was most uncomfortable. The water pipes/plumbing was noisy all night

          • Single
            5.4

            The location is pretty good, as it is quite near to at least 2 underground stops within 5 minutes' leisurely walking and there is a supermarket nearby.

            The Indian staffs working on the front-desk are not helpful at all. Every time when I asked for some help, they were reluctantly to do, eg, with my lugguage climbing up the long stairs. I think they should be more considerate. They also asked for 5 pounds for 2 hours using computers, and no "one hour" basis.

          • Single
            6.6

            I only stayed for one evening, and although the room and bathroom were rather small, they were clean and adequate. The location is excellent and the staff were friendly and helpful.

          • Family with children
            7.8

            The best thing about City Continental is its location 2 mins from Earls Court tube station with an m&s supermarket at the top of the street. Room was newly renovated and very clean. Breakfast was very good with cereals, breads, eggs, juice/yogurts and tea/coffee. Staff were cordial and friendly. The k&k hotel nearby has a lovely guest bar area serving food and drinks where we able to relax comfortably with our teenage son after our sightseeing trips later in the evening

            The City Continental while comfortable and comparatively good value has minimal hotel facilities for guests .. b&b only (small reception, bedrooms and basement breakfast room ) Staff are very polite but do not deal effectively with reasonable guest queries. We had a 24 hr wait to have the safe opened and were only there for two nights. No reply at all to our query on the inactive fan in bathroom or air-conditioning unit in bedroom. Would recommend this hotel mainly if price and location is priority.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Location close to Underground. Clean. Reasonable price.

            Would have liked a lounge with comfortable seats. The rooms are small and fine for sleeping but there was no place in the hotel to sit and read.

          • Single
            7.0

            It is an ideal hotel for single people or couples who need to spend just a few nights in London (job interviews, short city breaks). The hotel has been recently refurnished and it is still in process of upgrading. My room, although it is very small, it was very clean and knit. It got everything was I need and what you expect for a 3-star-hotel.

            Breakfast. You will not enjoy the best continental breakfast in your life, but it will help you to kick the day. Internet service is amazingly expensive. Go to a Cyber cafe. It will be way cheaper. Bring some earplugs. Walls are rather thin.

            Very close to Earls court, room kept clean.bed comfartable

            Very small room with no drawer space at all.
