Henley House Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Henley House Hotel was an ideal home base for us as we explored London. The staff was friendly and helpful, breakfast was great and the rooms were comfortable, modern and very clean. The Henley House will be our first choice for accommodations the next time we visit London.

After a business trip elsewhere in Europe, I decided to spend some time in London. I liked the idea of staying somewhere smaller near a tube stop instead of the middle of London and really didn't want to spend an arm and a leg for a room. Hotel was really clean and attempting very hard to be boutique - for some reason, and maybe this is because I had booked a single - it kind of reminded me of a very posh dorm room. The mattress definitely left something to be desired. (Actually, it might've been similar TO my dorm room mattress in college) but it was clear a lot of work had been put in to update and make the hotel nice. My room overlooked the park - so very peaceful. I didn't make it to breakfast but from what I saw I didn't miss much. One warning - this hotel doesn't have an elevator. I ended up staying on the top floor and had a rather interesting time trying to get my suitcase up the stairs. Also, the front desk isn't staffed 24/7 - so remember your key to get in. It wasn't a problem for me until I was trying to check at at a time the staff was SUPPOSED to be there and they weren't. I ended up just telling someone in the kitchen I was leaving. Otherwise though, I'd definitely stay here again.

great location near tube stop and small commerical district. help are most friendly. room small but very ade4quate. highly recomment it - andprices are reasonable!

[...] I was visiting London as a solo traveler doing research, and I wanted a reasonably priced, low-frills place that was clean, near an Underground, wi-fi equipped, and in a neighborhood with some decent dining options. The Henley House fit that bill - it's just a block away from the Earl's Court station, and there are some decent restaurants nearby. My room was small, few amenities, with a shower (shower quality was fine, though it takes a minute for the hot water to come through), had a good high-speed wireless connection, and the hotel provides a very basic continental breakfast (coffee, toast, cereal, yogurt). Perfect for someone who just needs a place to crash. As I was traveling by myself, I can't attest to the quality of the larger rooms. However, my only complaint is that the walls can be a little thin and the sound of people coming and going can get a little loud, though this is hardly the only hotel to suffer from this problem. Staff is friendly, too.
