Historical Traveller Reviews of Jurys Inn Chelsea Hotel

Excellent Hotel

from stonerose
We stayed in Jurys Innn Chelsea for three nights (Mar 17-20, 2005) & found it magnificent. When you stay a Jurys Hotel/Inn you are guaranteed quality. Our room was on the 6th floor with great views of London. As the hotel is only newly opened it is in pristine condition. The room itself is tastefully decorated, has a great bathroom & everything you would expect from a modern hotel.
From browsing previous posts on this site with regards to the location of the hotel I would like to give my opinion on the subject. The nearest tube station (Fulham Broadway) is a nice short 10min walk from the hotel. As the weather in London was unseasonalbly good (20c mid-March) it seemed only a stone's throw away. A tube into central London (Oxford Circus) takes approx 10-15min. The general area is mainly residential, settled & quiet & extremely safe. You are never going to have a perfectly located hotel close to all the attractions in any city. At night when we ventured into the West End to socialise we took a cab home with cost £20.
With London being such a big city I firmly believe Jurys Inn to be a great value option & would heartily recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting London in the not to distant future. You will not be dissapointed!
P.S. For a great restaurant try 1492 Latin Fusion in nearby Fulham (404 North End Road).

A hidden gem

from A TripAdvisor Member
I just returned from a six night stay at the Jurys Inn Chelsea. We had a fantastic stay and would definitely stay there again. Our room was ready when we arrived early (an unexpected treat) and the room was better than I had expected. I had read the hotel rooms in London were tiny, but this one was actually a bit bigger than I had imagined. The coffee/tea in the room was great after a long day, and after mastering "hairdryer in drawer" styling technique, that was OK too. There were plenty of pillows and towels (not quality towels though) and the beds were pretty comfortable. The rooms were very quiet and we had a nice view of the Thames (though off to the left a bit.) The bathrooms were great, again not huge but well laid out and great water pressure in the shower (once I figured out the adjustments). The continental breakfast was good and the restaurant meal we had was great (and not expensive for Chelsea area). The staff were very friendly and helpful, very attentive and smiling. Much has been written about the location, being too far out, inconvenient, etc. Well I loved where the hotel is located. After a busy day in the heart of London, it was relaxing to come "home" to our quiet little section of the city. The bus to Earl's Court was right out front and in the morning only took about 5 - 7 mins.(about 15-20 in the eve). We walked to two fantastic restaurants on the King's Road (Chutney Mary & Jim Thompson's); an easy walk (10-15 mins.) With the new train station arriving and Imperial Wharf and Chelsea Harbor building up, this hotel won't be a bargain for long. Enjoy it while it's a hidden gem!

Would stay there again.

Stayed there January 05. A newer hotel that I would equate with a newer motel 6 in the US. The room was a spacious corner room but the bath was rather small although it was a full 3 piece bath. The room price included a basic continental breakfast however for 3 pounds you can have a full breakfast which I did while my wife had the continental breakfast. We were satisfied with the food. The most complaints about this hotel is the distance from the tube station. We timed it and it was a 15 minute walk and we felt safe at night. The next day we took the bus which was easy and cost 1.20 pounds. The bus made the tube station easily accessible so the location became a moot issue. The hotel bar was nice and drinks fairly priced (for London). I would see no reason not to stay there again. Very pleasant and helpful staff.

Great Hotel! - Location Not an Issue for Us

from Bengali_Traveler
My wife and I recently spent 6 days at the Jury’s Inn Chelsea in London. We had a special offer of 2 free nights through British Airways in connection with the Detroit-London tickets we had purchased, and this was one of the 5 hotels we could choose from. Initially we were a little worried about the comments that other reviewers had made about the distance from the London Underground. Once there, however, we found this to not be a problem at all, and were very pleased overall with the hotel.

The hotel itself is quite new, and modern in style. All the amenities are of very high quality and in fine working order. The hotel staff are all generally quite helpful and accommodating. I cannot vouch for whether they were knowledgeable about London, as I did not question them too much on such issues. I should note that in particular, they were quite helpful in accommodating us for an early check-in almost 4 hours before the regular check-in time, although we did travel in January, a typically slow travel time. We were grateful for that after not being able to sleep too much on our overnight transatlantic flight and arriving in London at 6:30am.

The room itself was on the small end by American standards, but is probably relatively large for the UK. The bathroom and room amenities, such as the TV, phone, climate control, were all new, of a high quality, and in fine working condition. The room and bathroom was clean, and the housekeeping did a fine job of keeping it that way. Noise was never and issue.

There is a restaurant and bar in the hotel, and a complimentary Continental breakfast was included each morning, and was substantial enough for our needs. If it is not, an upgrade to a Full English breakfast is available too. A downside to the hotel is that aside from these facilities, there aren’t any others within a few minutes walking distance, although that will probably change during the development of the Imperial Wharf area.

There has been much comment on the distance of the hotel from public transport. We did not find this to be an issue. The Fulham Broadway Underground station is a pleasant 10-minute walk away and can easily be walked regularly. The neighborhood seemed quite safe, even when we walked home once after midnight. In addition, the 391 Bus Stop is a 2-minute walk away, and runs relatively frequently. Even on Sundays, the bus runs every 10 minutes (every 15 minutes, later in the evening), so the wait is never long. The walk is about as quick as the bus when you consider the waiting time, but the bus might be preferable if it is raining. In hindsight, I do not consider the location of the hotel to be an issue at all. The Tube is quite close, and once you are on, everything in London is in easy reach. We either took the bus, the tube or walked the whole 6 days. We did not need a taxi once, even when we stayed out late at night. Also, in and around the Fulham Broadway station there are many fine pubs, restaurants, banks, shops, and a supermarket. The location of the hotel will improve even more soon, as an Imperial Wharf Tube station is proposed, and I believe it might open as early as mid-2005, but that timing should be confirmed with Transport for London. This station is going to be just around the corner from Jury’s Inn Chelsea.

We did not really have any complaints about the hotel, but a few minor details to note are as follows. The addition of an iron and ironing board in the room, and moving the hair dryer from the desk by the TV to the bathroom would be appreciated. Maps of the local area in the hotel guide would have been helpful. There is a payphone in the lobby, but it set up such that toll free calls cannot be made, so I was unable to use the prepaid calling card I had to make calls – the charges from the room phone were unreasonably high, as it usually the case for hotel phones. All minor issues.

We certainly recommend this hotel without reservations to anyone in London for a short stay, be it for business or leisure. I would not hesitate to stay there again if we were in London, as we were pleasantly surprised by our stay.

Clean, quiet, but a way off track

from sapbloke
I stay in hotels most week nights so I review this one from some experience.
Room - excellent. New, clean , fresh, quiet .. its only 8 months old so its what I would expect.
Restaurant - light , airy, nightly specials, food a good quality, very limited menu however. Not for cosy 1-2-1's. Staff adequate.
Reception - very helpful.
Breakfast - they never took my room number so I had 3 free breakfasts !. Staff lacking in morning. Good traditional spread.
Location - near lovely Chelsea harbour .. but about 800yds from nearest pubs; restaurants; shops. Tube is 1.5 miles away. Taxi is £20 to west end. Its actually refreshing to be away from the hustle and bustle. IMHO

Nice but inconveniently located

from dobbler79
My husband and I stayed here our last night in London for our honeymoon in early October. We had stayed the first part at the Copthorne Tara, which was older but much more convenient for mass transportation and resturants, shops, etc. We arrived back in London from two days in Edinburgh and were disappointed in how far the tube station was from the hotel. We had to take a cab, since no one at the tube station seemed to know which bus we needed. We ran into the same problem the next morning upon checkout--we had an early flight and couldn't take the bus so we called for a cab. He took us back to the Fulham Broadway tube station, which was not yet open. We had to have him drive us all the way to Victoria station to catch the train to Gatwick. It's not a cheap ride.

On the bright side, the Jurys Inn Chelsea was obviously brand new, with a modern color scheme and furnishings, updated bathrooms and comfortable beds. The staff was exceptionally nice; we chatted with the lady at the desk for a few minutes about our travels and she congratulated us on our wedding, etc. She was very personable and made us feel welcome. Our room was comfortable and quiet. We didn't hear any noise from other rooms and got our 5 a.m. wake-up call with no problem.

Overall, if you've planned your trip to the last detail and need to be in the Chelsea area specifically, the hotel is great. If you're winging it like we were and prefer to be more central and walking distance to the tube, I'd stay in Kensington.

Ok, but the location is the problem

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed here recently mostly because it was cheap.

Cheap price
Clean and relatively new
High speed internet access
Quiet area
Large bathroom
Nice beds
Central Airconditioning

The air conditoning unit gave an audible click whenever it started or stopped. I didn't notice it much when I was sleeping. Occassionaly it would just stop though.

The shower curtain would not go all the way around because the metal rail holding it had to taped at the joint. This was not an issue for because I am short person, but it might be for a larger person. Also, the shower head is VERY high up, I almost had to stand on my toes to reach it.

High speed internet access costs 7 pounds for 1 hour or 15 pounds for 24 hours. Luckily they had not worked out the billing so I wasn't charged, but conversion for the dollar is not good and that is approximately $30 per day.

The location to the tube is just awful. If you are by yourself, don't bother using the tube if you have more than two large suitcases. Taxi to and from heathrow is between 40-50 pounds, not cheap but more convient.

If you have a family or are couple, and visiting for toursim don't stay here. Stay at central london location, even if it is a little more pricier. The walk to and from Fulham is just very annoying. The bus service is not always easy to wait for.

Also, there is nothing around the hotel except residential buildings. No shops, bard, restaraunts, post office, etc.

Do not get me wrong this hotel is very nice, but for the tourist just not worth it.

Very good

from A TripAdvisor Member
Booked a family room (2 adults & 2 children) for a Friday and Saturday Night.

BE WARNED: if you book with hoteldirect, they will tell you that the rooms can accommodate TWO chidren. In reality, the kids' bed is a single fold-out sofa bed which was too small to fit my two kids (6 and 8yrs).

The manageress (extremely helpful) pointed out that they inform hoteldirect about this, but this agency persists in advertising rooms for 2 kids.

Within 5 minutes of pointing out our problem, another put-me-up bed was brought to our room and our daughters were happy!

The room was clean, the main bed very comfy, and the bathroom excellent (wonderful shower).

Breakfast was good (eat all you like) - we had the continental option, but the full English looked good.

The bar is spacious and child-friendly, and served bar snacks until 10pm (ideal after a long journey) - and the number of Irishmen who were in ther is testament to the quality of the Guinness!

The hotel is slightly off the beaten track, but you can get the C3 bus up to Fulham Broadway/Kensington or the 391 up to Earl's Court.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

A great choice

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at the Jury's Inn recently for two weeks and really enjoyed the experience. The hotel is quite new. Along with everything being clean and spacious, the staff was very friendly. There is also a great breakfast served each morning in a nice dining room and newspapers are provided. The bar/coffee shop was also quite hopping when I was there.

As far as the transportation goes, it works out well once you understand what bus to use. The C3 and 391 pick up and drop off directly outside the hotel, the former going directly to the Earl's Court tube station and the latter going straight to Fulham Broadway. Earl's Court is a very well-located tube stop and can get you most places very easily. Nowhere you stay in London is in the middle of every single place you want to go so you might as well stay at a place like this that has good rates, clean rooms and an attentive staff.

Very welcoming and helpful

from peachbum83
This hotel was fantastic! We were welcomed by a warm staff member and promptly checked in. The rooms are a bit smaller than imagined, but still comfortable. The bathroom is spotlessly clean and all the furniture was new and clean. The staff was very helpful in finding us a cab during tube off-hours among other things. There's a bus that runs about every 20 minutes that takes you to and from the tube but it is a pleasant walk as well. The Fulham Broadway station is like a shopping mall of sorts. Very quaint! I recommend this hotel for its great value.

Top Local Tips for London

Royal Hospital Chelsea I loved this. Great ambience, peaceful and relaxing, helpful, welcoming and informative Chelsea Pensioners, free admission, lovely architecture, fascinating history.

Traditional English breakfast close to hotel Directly outside the Putney Bridge tube stop is the River Cafe. It's a friendly traditional English cafe where you can get a big breakfast of egg, bacon, sausage, beans, chips, tomato, mushrooms, tea and toast for less than 5 pounds all while feeling like part of the local neighborhood. It's a 15 minute walk/bus ride from Jurys Inn Chelsea.

Save money - Go to London in the off-season Everything is easier and less expensive in London during the off season. No waiting for anything, anywhere except for the London Eye, which is always busy on a nice day. Minimize costs by staying just a bit out of central London on the Tube. Get a hotel that offers breakfast. Eating at the museums / cathedrals is surprisingly cheap compared to your other options. Save money on breakfast and lunch, then eat fancier for dinner
