Henley House Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Bed was very comfortable, and a great location over looking the park with small balcony, although to cold to use when we were there. But bathroom was tiny, unable to open door fully due to bathroom sink being located behind door also unable to stand up in front of toilet because bathroom s so narrow, had to move to the side. Hotel a very noisy when other guests moving around.

Friendly staff at check in, room wasn't ready but there was no problem storing bags until such time. Small hotel located in a fairly nice area with nice surrounding streets, Earls Court tube station just around the corner. Room not spacious, might not be good for bigger people. Very modern however, newly renovated with the necessities, and very clean! A nice addition was the "Handy-phone", which was the guests' to take with them, offering free internet and Google maps in the city, a very good idea. Breakfast alright, basic Continental (eggs, yoghurt, three kinds of cereal, bread, cheese, fruit, coffee machine). The breakfast room quite pleasant with glass roof.

Location is a huge plus, just 3 minutes walk from Earl's Court station and next to Hotel Indigo, so it is quite easy to find. Hotel is converted from an old building so the hotel looks compact, and of course, the single room as well. It is alright for a single traveler like me and at least I could open the suitcase completely. The bed is fine and I could still sleep properly. The bathroom area is a little bit small though, and I think it would be hard for bigger body to utilize. In general, I am still happy with the stay because of the location and the delicate room. 2-night stay, on 27/11/2017

If your in London for a few days and have a busy schedule and want to be in the heart of the city center, Henley House hotel is the place to stay. Friendly staff, good breakfast, comfortable rooms and clean.

Conveniently located near Earl's Court Metro station, this is a cute hotel overlooking a small courtyard . Recently renovated rooms were thoughtfully designed to include everything you need , albeit compactly. Banksy pictures decorated the hallways- loved that! We were looking for an independent hotel near a metro and with breakfast included and found everything we wanted here. 1) free wifi was included and worked fine for us. 2) Handy wifi phone for use outside for free. We used it when we were out for directions and restaurant recommendations. 3) Rooms were clean and modern. Rooms were as pictured. Beds were comfortable. Mini- fridge and items to make coffee or tea in the room. Bathroom is really small, but includes some toiletries, fluffy white towels and robes. Shower water pressure was a little low. 4) Continental self- serve breakfast was included and had the basics- juice, eggs, yogurt, cereal, fruits, breads and cheese. Nothing fancy, but adequate to get your day started . Also with coffee machine that makes cappuccino,mochas and lattes. Breakfast room was nicely decorated and had an almost full ceiling skylight. 5) check in was easy. Staff was pleasant and helpful . 6)Elevator doesn't reach all floors/rooms and so some will need to walk up stairs to get to your room. Keep that in mind if you have large or heavy luggage or bad knees. Knowing that it was my mother's birthday, staff had decorated the room for her and left her a thoughtful gift and card. Made her first night in London very special . I would stay here again and recommend it.

The property is very inviting, as was the receptionist. I booked a small double, that was a very good size. All beautifully renovated with the latest mod cons. Lovely bed linen and the towels are huge. Breakfast is plentiful. The staff are really friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay here again. So central.

Couldn't get into our normal hotel for a business trip so got one of the last rooms available here. I emailed in advance and was able to get an early check in so we didn't need to take our luggage to the trade show at Olympia (walking distance nearby). Our room overlooked the lovely square and gardens and was beautifully clean. The room was snug but beautifully stylish. Shower was hot and powerful. Complimentary breakfast was great. Nice bright breakfast room. Banksy prints on every floor. Staff here were brilliant. Very friendly and polite. Only negative would be that our room did feel a bit small. Luckily was with my partner of some 13 years so pretty used to each other and only staying for one night so only had a weekender style bag. Definitely would use again. Bravo and Thank you.

On our Arrival we were a bit disappointed about the Hotel. As we arrived in our Room we had Problems with the Wifi-Signal on our Floor and we were not able to connect into Internet. The bigger Problem were the many hairs which were still laying all over the bathroom floor, in the shower and 1-2 in the sink. This is an absolute No-Go! As we left in the evening for some dinner, we mentioned the Problems with our room and the staff immediately promised some Actions and fixed the Problems as we came back some hours later. The breakfast is very good and the Croissants are amazing (you won't find anything similar in London). The atmosphere in the breakfast room (Wintergarden) is amazing and very bright even in the early morning hours. If you Need a good Standard London Hotel this is the right place for you - if you look to much into Details I would recommend another place as there are maybe some Points which are too bothering.

Stayed in a single room for 4 days in the last week of September 2017. Hotel is in a great location in Earl's Court, a 3 minute walk from the tube and bus routes giving easy access to the whole city. There are plenty of restaurants and pubs close by along with several stores selling groceries. As others have noted, the rooms are small. Think cruise ship cabin small. There is a tiny lift, however you will still likely have to climb some stairs to get to your room. People with mobility issues may find the hotel unsuitable. My room was clean, pleasant and in very good condition. The window opened and the A/C & heating system worked very well. The Wifi was always strong and I was on the top floor. There was a small fridge which allowed for storage of water, as well as some sandwiches and fruit. Breakfast was standard European hotel fare; bread, cheese, cold meat, fruit, cereal, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, coffee tea, juice served in a pleasant solarium on the ground floor. All the staff I encountered were friendly and helpful. I thought it good value and a great place to retreat to after long days out and about in London.

I stayed at the HHH before and knew what to expect. I booked the single room. It is super small, but very comfortable (if you are not a very big person) and has everything you need. It is clean and practical. The only improvement that could be done is the pressure for the shower, and maybe the breakfast. The location is perfect, in the nice South Kensington area, right by Earls Court Tube Station. Pubs, Cafes, Restaurants etc. close nearby. The staff at the front desk is very nice and helpful. I will definitely consider this hotel again for my next London trip.
