“Small but great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

I stayed here after extending a business trip to London last month. I loved the location of this hotel, one of the better places to stay, very central and only about two or three stops away from Oxford Street, with two tube stations located very closely.
I booked a single room and knew I was going to get a single bed after reading up on it. Also, I chose this hotel for the free WiFi too. The room was super tiny though, barely had place to walk after placing my luggage down and opening it. The only thing I did not like about this hotel was my single room being located next to the lift, so it got quite noisy on the first night. The bathroom was fairly tiny, as someone who isn't very big, I just barely fit into the shower. I booked a room only basis so had breakfast as the Starbucks just around the corner. The hotel itself is neat and I loved the automatic main door that just opened as you approached. You can also store your luggage on your last day after checkout if you still have hours to kill.

We stayed for 3 nights, our room was a twin at the back. The room was so small that the beds were end to end, no where to put our luggage but on the floor! The bathroom was so small we had to leave the door open to be able to dry ourselves when coming out of the shower. But the location isgreat, minutes away from the tube.

So happy we chose to stay here. Fabulous location, lovely staff, beautiful interiors, shiny and clean. Handy to,shops and restaurants and easy walk down Queensway to Hyde park and Kensington gardens. No trouble getting taxis to marble arch and further. Breakfast is adequate for a start to your day. Beds very comfy, large towels and plenty of them, and face cloths which is rare these days. I would not hesitate to come back here, ok it's a little tight for luggage space but this is Central London. Bathrooms compact and completely functional. all in all a ten out of ten from me and I admit I am hard to please. Value for money.

Stayed here for 4 nights. The hotel is in a great location near two tube stations, lots of resturants/pubs, and a pharmacy. The hotel was very clean and the wi-fi was great! Would definitely stay here again!

This was an excellent value right in walking distance to subways and major rail stations. My wife and I walked through Hyde Park and all the way to the center of London. The rooms were a little small but this was expected in this large city. The beds were comfortable, the rooms were very clean, and the staff was very helpful. They took the time to orient us to the city and helped with arranging cabs and transportation. This hotel stood out amoungst its peers by having such a quiet and bucolic location. Our room was located on a quiet street that had a park on the other side.

We enjoyed our stay at the London House Hotel. Though the rooms were small, the customer service was great and the location was extremely convenient. We were two blocks from the Bayswater tube stop and the same two blocks from a Marks and Spencer food store. We bought breakfast and snack items to store in the room frig. We were also about two blocks from a laundromat, however it costs about $10 US for one small load to wash and dry. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and guided us on several occasions. Kudos to the staff.

Room Tip: we stayed in the basement area so natural light. However, it was not a bother.

Stayed for 3 nights last month during Chelsea Flower show and must say hotel is in a great location overlooking some gardens and 5 minutes walk to 2 tube stations. Rooms are very good and kept very clean with good bathroom and nice shower with toiletries. Nice restaurants on Westbourne Grove(5 mins walk). Never tried breakfast at hotel but good cooked breakfast at the Greek Farmer cafe on Westbourne Grove is very good value(£9 for 2 of us including tea/coffee).
Would definitely recommend for a short stay.

Room Tip: Ask for room facing gardens
