72qt Guest House
Ranked #83 of 567 London B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 March 2014

We loved the Latvian Guest House, very friendly staff, great abundant breakfast, nice cozy clean rooms, specklessy clean bathrooms, two minutes away from Queensbay tube station (5 minutes to central london) Awesome Latvian beers in the bar. Right in front of Hyde Park, very quiet at night.

We felt just like at home. For London, pricewise it is unbeatable.

Of course, if you're picky little things might bug you and you should look for another place, but for the low/middle budget traveller it delivers beyond expectations.

We stayed here in March 2014 and rented a double room with shared bathroom. The room was clean and comfortable. In the mornings English breakfast and some continental is served, the English breakfast plate is made for every guest individually (and tasted great). Staff were nice and friendly. The best thing about this hotel is undoubtedly its location. It is located in a quiet street next to the park, a 5 minute walk away from Queensway Station, the bus stop and a cheap grocery store. It was really easy to get to Picadilly Circus, West End, pretty much anywhere we needed to go was only a 15 to 20 minute train ride away. The price is relatively low for London. Great deal! If you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel and centrally located hotel in London, look no further!

This friendly guest house gets high marks for its central location, cleanliness and good mattresses. Rooms are simple, but super clean, as are the shared baths and toilets. A generous English breakfast is included and the staff are very friendly. I would return any time. At 60 pounds a night, there was plenty of money left over for enjoying pricey London. The Latvian beer served in the bar on the weekend is really good, too!

This is a very informal - I'd even go so far as to say quirky - guest house just across the road from Kensington Park. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable and the staff all make you really welcome.Yes, it had shared bathrooms but there were plenty of them and they were always spotless. Breakfast was good. My room had a TV - *I gather some rooms don;t but why do you need a TV in central London? It's not as though there's nothing to do! Will be going back.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back overlook a really pretty courtyard.

We booked this hotel for around £60 per night - excellent value in London at any time. It proved to be a great hotel for that price. Located approx 5 minutes walk from the Queensway Tube and 2 minutes walk from London's beautiful Hyde Park, it is also close to Notting Hill and Marble Arch.

The hotel did not seem to have lifts and the stairs were quite steep so this hotel wouldn't be great for the disabled or those with very heavy luggage, but for spry travellers with light luggage it would be fine.

Our room was a decent size and kept more than warm enough by the in-room heater. The fittings are no frills and one medium sized towel per person but everything was very clean and worked properly.

Our room did not have its own ensuite and the bathroom and toilet were shared, located a small walk down our hallway. The bathroom was very clean - immaculate, even if the fittings were basic it was fine to use and the shower was hot with good pressure.

Our room was reasonably sized and had a closet for coats and clothing storage. It also had a kettle but no other in-room amenities.

It is worth noting that only very basic toiletries are supplied - a bar of soap and a sachet of shampoo. For anything more this hotel is definitely bring-your-own.

On the evenings on weekends there is a Latvian bar and dinner is served at a reasonable price, it smelt great even though we didn't eat there this time we would consider it in future to try some Latvian food.

We sadly missed breakfast as we weren't aware of the hours - as many signs are in Latvian for this guesthouse, be sure to ask anything you need to know.

The area was relatively quiet for a weekend, although there was some noise on the Saturday night, it wasn't loud enough to be a bother. The hotel guests were very quiet.

I would definitely stay here again and for the price it is excellent value.

I stayed at this hotel for the second time, only for a night. The breakfast was delicious, thanks to the diligent gentleman! The reception girls were nice and helpful. The price is very good, and the place is OK, you cannot get lost in small streets, like in the case with other hotels. The only drawbacks are the common bathroom, and the noises in the street are a bit annoying, too (from other hotels). Would love to return to Latvian Guest House, anyway. Paldies!

The hotel is really great, I have no problem staying here again. the location is very good also as it is near to London major attraction. For shopping, it is near to oxford street, natural history museum and science museum is just 20 minute walk away, you can catch the sub if want to go to tate modern and milineum bridge.
Overall this is really a great place to stay
