Which Location?

We will be traveling to London in the spring. We are interested in the Novetel London West or Base2Stay. Which would you suggest in terms of ease of transportation, safety and general location. this is our first trip (2 adults) so we will be hitting all the tourist stops. Thanks for your help.

No problems with safety -as with London in general, other than the usual advice to keep an eye on your bags/purse/wallet/valuables and use some common sense - with either.

Base2stay wins hands down on accessibility and general area IMO.

Another vote for base2stay, much better situated than the Novotel. It's two minutes' walk from Earl's Court station: use the Earl's Court Road way out and cross at the traffic signal. Turn right then left almost immediately at Earl's Court Gardens.

Walk straight to the T junction and turn right again, with base on the right; you'll see two small potted plants at the foot of the steps.
