So, another year is finally behind us. The last guests of 2016 will be checking in with us any day now, and here at the Amsterdam Hotel in Earls Court, we’re feeling in a rather reflective mood.
For us, 2016 has been another one of the many successful years we’ve spent at the helm of one of South West London’s most popular luxury hotels. It has been another year of welcoming both new and returning guests, and another year spent enjoying many of the music, culture, and sporting events taking place nearby.
We’ve seen our local football club, Chelsea F.C take on the mighty giants of the Premier League and the UEFA champions league, we’ve enjoyed rousing performances at the nearby Royal Albert Hall, and, of course, we’ve had more than a few opportunities to head over to nearby Kensington Continue reading

Finally, that long, wet winter is behind us, spring has sprung, and you’re now looking forward to jetting off to somewhere warm and wonderful for a well-earned break.
There’s just one problem; you’re flying from Heathrow Airport at such a bizarre time in the late night or early morning that you’ve now got little choice to book a hotel room to catch some rest before you fly.
Sure, there’s accommodation to be found next door to the airport, but let’s face it, they’re hardly the most cost-effective solution to airport layovers, and you’d much rather save your money to spend on better things once you’re abroad.
By opting to stay outside the airport area and transferring in via train, you’ll not only save money, but enjoy a number of other benefits too Continue reading
