The Langorf Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Room was amazing, spotlessly clean and enormous.Staff were helpful. Buffet breakfast was great. The only negative thing I can say is the room we had was obviously once a smoking room and on arrival still smelt of smoke, but after a bit of an airing the smell went.

Friendly staff on arrival and location and price are great. But the attic room I was in clearly used to be a smoking room as the room really reeked of old stale smoke. Decor is shabby and the bathroom has rusty spots. However they'd clearly cleaned it so can't fault the service! If they refurbished the rooms, this would be a fantastic hotel!! That said I'd probably stay here again if it was possible to request a room that had never been a smoking room.

In the context of London's vastly over-priced hotel accommodation, where value for money is a rare experience, this place is just about okay. The bedroom was very small (and too hot), but clean enough and adequate for an overnight stay. Yes, it's decor is dated, and the mattress has seen better days, but it's acceptable. Breakfast was good - a generous array of meats, cheeses, fruit etc. - and the staff team members were all very pleasant. The hotel is a five minute walk from Finchley Road Underground station.

I shared a room (3 bed) with my 21 year old son and a girl friend of his. She had been an overseas exchange student for a semester at his university in Australia, and as we were visiting the UK, and she had never been to London, she came over for a long weekend from Germany. The room was big enough, warm enough and the hotel had a great breakfast (especially for the youngsters). Staff were very accommodating with luggage storage - before and after our stay. The location is central - good price for clean, honest accommodation.

Stayed overnight in a double room on the top floor. The room was adequately furnished, bathroom (with shower) was reasonably clean but in the morning the 'hot water' was only just a bit warm, unable to take a full shower. The bed was a double, not too comfortable, but the bare mattress was covered by a sheet, (no mattress cover) and the top of the mattress quite obviously stained in various places. The management need to ensure that the mattresses are cleaned properly and they should be using mattress covers as well as the sheet. A noisy couple in the next door room kept me awake for some time late at night; walls a bit thin! Breakfast: reasonable choice of continental breakfast items, fair.

Unless a 1950s hotel experience is what you want, do not stay here! The beds are akin to sleeping on planks of wood, the rooms are small, damp and not looked after at all. To top all that off, our key card didn't work and we were next to the lift. Breakfast is awful as well, everything was room temperature and there was no sign of anything normal (i.e. toast), overall, a massive disappointment. The only up side to it was it was very quiet, but that was probably because no one stays here due to its quality (or lack of).

A lovely welcome awaited us when we arrived very late and completely exhausted. Our room was large, comfortable and well appointed. It was also clean. Bizarrely, though, there was a notice asking us to close the windows whenever we left the room to prevent squirrels from entering and scavenging for scraps of food!! Prudent? Yes, until I noticed that all the windows were fully wide open when we arrived and the central heating was on - very bizarre. A good night's sleep was followed by an average continental breakfast. With a little thought, and at no extra cost, our 'average' breakfast could have been so much better. Coffee served by the waitress from a machine - why not freshly made? Fruit salad from a tin - in 2017?! I was also less than impressed with having two waitresses in the 'kitchen' next to our table - with next to nothing to do - talking away in their native language at a volume which, although not upsetting, did nothing to enhance the enjoyment of a quiet breakfast The worst point, by far, was the complete lack of hot water. I couldn't have a shower - a basic provision for any hotel. I called reception who, although pleasant enough, had no answer. It was clear that there had been hot water earlier but it had run cold by the time I needed it. They clearly hadn't heated enough for every guest. That is not the sign of a well run hotel. I think my title - 'Good points, bad points - overall very average', sums our experience well. I think, also, that for the money we paid, the Langorf Hotel is fairly good value for money - even excellent value for money if hot water were included!

Located up a quiet road close to Finchley Road tube station and not too far from Hamstead. The room was clean and comfortable ,reception friendly and a good "continental" breakfast included in the very reasonable price.

This hotel is located in an attractive area and the hotel building itself is very stylish and old fashioned - in a traditional British way which I find lovely. The main advantage of the hotel is excellent staff which help you with any questions. Great choice for travellers as the metro station is close, too.

Stayed here for one night, unfortunately couldn't get a single room as it was fully booked. Nevertheless, it was better than expected I must say. It was an easy and short walk from Finchley Road station, so dragging my luggage around wasn't a problem. But since it was winter, it was really dark around 4pm and it was hard to navigate the hotel as the street it was on didn't have bright street lights. Location was very convenient, with a large Sainsbury next to the station and other restaurants as well. Staff was kind and helpful, very pleased with the service. As for the room itself, it was really spacious and large for a hotel in central London, therefore I was really pleased. Bathroom was spacious and clean as well, however I had problems with the shower as it only seem to had extremely hot or cold water when I tried to operate it for the first 10 minutes. Other than that, it was a pleasant stay and no faults to be found.
