      The staff were excellent, the services were very good, and I will be using this hotel on a regular basis. Location for me is very good too.

      to get the best rates - booking through Booked.net - could mean being in one type of room on one night and another room on another night. I will see whan staying there this week

      The lounge, restaurant and garden are very nice places to sit, which also offer free wifi.

      I had a single which nicely designed but was very small.

      Friendly staff, well maintained, in a good location, only 5-10 minute walk from Earl's Court Station.

      My room was near to the elevator.

    • Single
      9.2

      The staff at the hotel were incredibly friendly, courteous and helpful. I struggle to think how they coukld have helped me more. Although the room slightly on the small side, there was everything you needed contained within it and was in exceptional condition. I would certainly recommend the hotel.

    • Single
      7.4

      Perfectly petite room - queen sized bed and just about right for the single traveller

      The Eastern European staff were very helpful but their communication was not as good as it could have been

    • Family with children
      8.8

      The Rockwell was in a great location, very accessible to the Metro, and a good value for the money.

    • Older travelers
      8.8

      We enjoyed our stay at The Rockwell mainly because of the very friendly staff, the very good location and the size and cleanliness of the room.

      I read a lot of complaints about the bathroom/shower being so small. It is true that the bathroom and especially the shower are not made for corpulent people, but I found it quite OK actually. Look at the bright side, you get a nice big room at a great location in London for a very reasonable price.

    • Single

      very nice boutique hotel with lovely restaurant and garden, great service from professional staff.

    • Single

      it was easy to get the underground station and to find some grocery stores nearby.

      so cold at night and in the morning. didn't have to set the alarm.

    • Single
      7.8

      Just clean, polite staff - did the job.

      The rooms were a bit pokey but that's London. I do understand the rent and rates are high, making it harder for hotels to generate profits.

    • Single

      Staff were extremely helpful....Nothing was too much trouble! I would totally recommend the hotel, family feel hotel
