Hotel Name: The Paramount Hotel
Address: 50 Nevern Square, Earls Court, Kensington and Chelsea, London, United Kingdom.
I stayed at the The Paramount Hotel in London. I booked it online for the rate of £40 per night (approximately $50 USD). Earls Court is one of my preferred areas to stay in London, especially if I’m only visiting for a short time. In this case I was here for one night, arriving and departing from Heathrow Airport. Earls Court is on the Piccadilly Line that serves Heathrow, so it’s easy to get to. £40 is about as cheap as it gets for a cheap hotel in central London.
The Paramount Hotel is on a typical leafy West London street with beautiful old brick buildings. There is a park opposite the hotel, though it’s one of those private parks for home owners of the nearby square.
The reception/office is on the ground floor, and there is a little common area at the back. There’s also an outdoor section behind the building.
I got a single room with a private bathroom.
The bathroom was at the front of the room, creating a little hallway entrance to the room. There was a space for luggage on the side.
The room was pretty small, with just enough room on the side of the single bed. If you’ve travelled to enough expensive cities around the world then you will come to expect that small rooms are common. Travel is also a relative experience. I still my last London hotel stay fresh on my mind, where I got a room the size of a broom closet for £47. This room felt palatial after that experience.
The bathroom was clean and felt modern, and everything was in working order.
There is free wifi at the hotel, and I got several signals from my room. This hotel is not a B&B so you will have to forage for breakfast. I went to Greggs on Earls Court Road.
