London House Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A refurbished town house made into a hotel. The architecture was lovely but the small room we stayed in was below ground level with a view out to a window well and some of the worst hotel furniture I've ever seen. The (twin) beds were adequate but badly made up with overlarge sheets. It was nice to have a safe and a small refrigerator but the minimal storage or closet space was a negative. The bathroom was fine except for the difficulty getting into a shower with a reversed bifold door. The breakfast selection was good, especially for the price. The front desk was very helpful and polite but early mornings the maid staff seemed very loud and giggly in the halls. The location near Bayswater Tube Station was very good and the neighborhood is an interesting mix of ethnic shops and eats. Certainly the price was right but I might prefer to spend a little more for a room with better than formica furniture.

We stayed here for one night and the check in was easy and we were allowed in early which was so beneficial. The room was perfect for two of us and there was tea making facilities and the room was clean and quiet and the area perfect for reaching other parts of town but being able to walk through Kensington Gardens was the best.

I stayed for one night at the end of my trip and the hotel fit my needs well. I was in a small single room which was sufficient for one nights sleep. The location was nice as it was just a short walk from Notting Hill and Kensington Gardens.

Room was ridiculously tiny, the bed was a gloried cot. Though clean and I felt safe it has no business being called a hotel room. The room was on a staircase so I heard all the coming and goings. I could hear all kinds of noises from the room above including a guy snoring so loud I couldn't get to sleep one night. The floors were clearly not very well built, no sound proofing, nobody could stay here and enjoy this room. I thought I was getting a double bed in a small but nice room like I've gotten in the past. this hotel failed this basic mission. I was told the hotel was booked so I was stuck. Maybe I could have moved one night but I'd be back in the same room the rest of the trip. I was very disappointed and very tired all trip.

I stayed this hotel for 8 days/7 nights and was a good sized room in a quiet area, yet near everything as well. I definitively will be staying there again on my next visit.

Friendly staff and very cl ean checkin was efficient in

We arrived far earlier than check-in time after heading there straight from Heathrow, but the lady at the front desk was able to find us a room that was already prepared for us. The room was a little cramped, but had absolutely everything we could have wanted for our comfort.

great little place with a good breakfast at an extra charge.

I got a great package from Orbitz and this place was a find. Tiny single room, which I expected, but it had every thing you need. Except tissues.

We spent our first night in London at this hotel near Kensington park. The location of the hotel is conveniently near restaurants and Tesco where we bought some food. There are two underground stations which we can use, Baywater and Queensways. Since we had about two hours before leaving by train to Manchester, we asked one of the staff at the reception desk to recommend some places where we can walk in the neighborhood. She gave us good advice of walking to the Kensington park and Hyde Park. We spent a good two hours exploring the Kensington park and enjoyed the walk. The only down side of the hotel is the small room. But the room was very clean!

A wonderful hotel. Although small rooms, they were immaculate and perfect for a short stay. Staff great, helpful and friendly. We would definitely return on our next visit to London

It was a nice, quaint hotel. The room was very small but it was an easy walk to the Bayswater Station.

Great location right near the Underground, restuarants ect. Room was clean and the bed was comfy. Good deal for the price. Staff was a bit weird made a few mistakes at check-in but otherwise great.

Nice hotel small rooms but close to notting hill and any transportation but safely away fro the downtown crowds Walking distance to great pubs and restaurants and portobello road

The hotel was only 5-6 minutes from two different metro stations on different lines. It was also conveniently located near a variety of restaurants and shops. The hotel staff were helpful and fairly efficient. the room is very loud at night and you can hear cars and people talking from the streets. The cleanliness of the room was decent but the bathroom could have been cleaner. I liked the heated floors. Overall, for the price I would stay here again.

The hotel was very convenient to theTube and in a pleasant location with a nearby laundry and good restaurants. It's not far from Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, as well as the Victoria and Albert Museum. Although the hotel overlooks a green and pleasant square, the square is not open to the public, just to the nearby residents who pay for its maintenance.

Not that impressive about the room and the starf. The counter in the room look not that good. And way too small for using

This is a decent hotel located in a nice, quiet neiborhood. A few miniutes walk to Hyder Park. Close to a lot of restaraunts. Close to subway stations. Room is clean, though small. The bathroom is even smaller. But this does not bother us. The pay as you go breakfast is decent.

The location of the hotel was amazing! The room was very small and at least twice during our stay a very loud alarm would go off at different times and there was no explanation as to why. The room was always clean and restocked with fresh towel. Some of the staff was very friendly and great while some of the others would not even look your way when you walked in the door. Overall it was a great stay because of our location to central London.

Reasonably priced. The room was not huge but very clean and comfortable. Nice bathroom. Staff very friendly and helpful and the location is fantastic, a short walk to the tube and Kennsington Palace and lots of great restaurants nearby. Great Indian food at Khan's. Would stay again.
