Disabled room was tired and does not include double beds. - Review of Ibis London Earls Court, London - TripAdvisor

Disabled room was tired and does not include double beds. - Review of Ibis London Earls Court, London - TripAdvisor | Accessible Tourism | Scoop.it
Ibis London Earls Court: Disabled room was tired and does not include double beds. - See 3,378 traveller reviews, 705 candid photos, and great deals for Ibis London Earls Court at TripAdvisor.
Brian Seaman's insight:

Ideally the parking would be free - but that would be unusual in a city centre like London.
