Henley House Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I arrived after 1030 at night and was warmly greeted by a friendly member of staff for a very fast check in. The room was at the top of the building 43 - wow, what wonderful quality - and even a robe for my convenience. Bottle of water in the fridge and very up to date TV equipment and hi tech lighting. What I would expect if I paid double. Breakfast was buffet style with good coffee, trendy room and easy to get. Well done Henley House Hotel. My best single occupancy trip to a London hotel in the last 20 years!

Nice cosy large room - in a relatively clean small hotel - bed linen had old make up stains on it - but other than that the real stand out was the tiny bathroom with the tiny shower base and badly hung shower curtain that looked more like a place for storing mops ! The room obviously has had a lot of effort put into the various lighting styles and little added extras - why skimp on the cheap messy shower ?!?!

Very clean room and good hospitality. Very safe feeling neighborhood, just steps away from shops and restaurants. Stayed in double room which was VERY small. Very Firm mattress which I enjoyed but my husband did not. The breakfast was nice and fresh.

Having researched accommodation near Earls Court, my partner and I booked a 2 night stay at the Henley House Hotel. The location of the hotel is excellent – just a couple minutes walk from Earls Court tube station, and because if is off the main road there is no noise from traffic. The room was quite small but comfortable. There was a large screen tv (although the channels need a tidy up as many don't work or are duplicated). Plenty of lighting that is easily controlled. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom is a bit unusual in that there is a glass panel between it and the rest of the room with internal blinds (operated from the room side!) Can't quite get the reason for this. A good continental breakfast was served in the conservatory (although not that busy during our stay there is not enough seating to cater for all guests if the hotel was packed). The breakfast itself was very nice – you could have a boiled egg, toast etc, togethere with meat, cheese, fruit and yoghurts etc. The hotel has a small lift – enough for 2 people and luggage, which made life a lot easier. Overall, a good hotel, friendly staff and very clean. Located close to many good eateries and the short distance to Earls Court tube station makes it very appealing.

Stayed here for three days with a friend. The room very spacious and beds comfortable. The surroundings very nice and in a quiet area in Earls Court. Nice neighborhood with gardens. 2 min walk to the tube (Earls Court). Victoria Line and Piccadilly Line. Breakfast and wifi included in the price.

Well, Frankly - I' d love to write a 4 part essay on this hotel, but really - in hindsight it wasn't so bad as it was when i was there, what irked me is the value of this hotel which isn't so great but "maybe" marketed (maybe not the hotel directly but may appear to be syndicated online booking site) I am unsure, but i wasn't happy and certainly not one of the top properties in Kensington. One of the smallest rooms i stayed in Europe, whimsical staircase and if you have heavy luggage good luck to you, as the lifts mostly is occupied by the cleaners, the service itself (though limited) is only mediocre all in all i'd say it truly doesn't live up to its hype. The staff though pleasant has mediocre decorum and has i had not been on a holiday, i would disagree to agree more, but just didn't have the penchant to argue. The breakfast selection is a poor some eggs and bread plus a few cereals, nothing to shout about if you are vegetarian, keep guessing if theres eggs in that bread-dough of theirs. Quality of Coffee is poor, espresso machine seems unservicable. Again, i'd love to get into all the nitty gritty but it had some finer points which which was a plus, the room is/was ultra clean (though ultra small), i could open the window to let some air in, bathroom though ultra small gain was clean and new, amenities are all acceptable. The carpets inside the room are all good, reception needs major upgrading. In-short reminded me of Tokyo, and I thats the last place i'd think of going for a holiday. Would i return, NO. P/S : I must give it out to the receptionist, she tried her level best in consoling me with words like 1.Please try and be more positive. 2.This is how rooms here and in Europe is for a single occupant. 3.Nothing can't be done for your booking as you already paid for two days. 4.If you feel claustrophobic please open the window I did and i woke up at the middle of the night to shut the window back, so set an alarm. It also done marvellously well for me imbibe some positive mental attitude into my wellbeing and i came back to my country roaring - :) Ultimately what can i say, It was my fault that i picked this as a choice, and we have to live with our choices don't we.

Excellent location two minutes walk from the tube station and surrounded by a number of restaurants, bars and shops. Check in was swift but hotel facilities are limited with no seating area apart from a small sofa at the check in lobby. The room faced a charming private residents park but the room was tiny, only being the width of the single bed placed across the window. This made it feel quite claustrophobic so a lounge would have been nice. Tea and coffee and complimentary water provided but only Nescafé. Great location but too small for my liking.

This hotel is two steps away from the well served Earls Court tube station and is in front of a nice park. Having been newly redecorated renders is quite comfortable. What is uncomfortable are the small rooms, the "voyeur" bathroom (the transparent glass wall opens out to the bed where all can see "all"--the Venetian blinds hermetically sealed within the glass no longer work and remain open), and the bedroom blinds opening to the delightful park purposefully do not open (the same with the reception) covering the old, un-renovated, drafty windows which reeked havoc with the heat. But the worst was the undisciplined staff with no overseer.

Earl's Court is an amazing location to explore London with easy access to the tube and great restaurants and pubs dotting the streets, but also Earl's Court feels very residential. The Henley House Hotel staff was very welcoming and helpful with restaurant suggestions in the area. The rooms are small as expected, but had everything you need for a wonderful stay (even a mini-fridge). The neighborhood is very quiet even though is is so close to the bustling Earl's Court. I look forward to staying at the Henley again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a clean, modern hotel with English charm.

We spent 7 nights at this hotel in March 2017. The best feature is the location. There's nothing better after a long day of sightseeing than to know that your hotel is only a short block and a half away from the tube station. Earl's Court is a very manageable station with two of the most used lines - District and Piccadilly. On a previous visit, we stayed near Victoria Station, which is just so big and overwhelming. We much prefer Earl's Court. As soon as you exit the tube station, you have all you need right there, including convenience stores, markets, pubs, restaurants, banks, etc. When you turn the corner on to Barkston, all of the busyness fades away. The hotel is on a quiet street with a garden across the street. It's a peaceful retreat from the city. We stayed in a deluxe twin room with a window to the back garden. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room for our bags. We also appreciated the desk area. The bathroom was decent sized and beautiful as well as functional. We always had hot showers in the mornings. The wifi worked reliably and was speedy enough to stream videos. The breakfast is an assortment of meats, cheeses, breads, yogurt, fruit, juices, etc. We didn't try the egg boiling appliance, but it was available. They also have a fancy coffee machine that makes a variety of hot beverages. We highly recommend this hotel. We enjoyed our time and would go back again if the opportunity arises.
