The Langorf Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed for 3 nights last week and found both the staff and the hotel perfectly fine. Our room was on the small side but clean and the bathroom looked to have been recently refurbished. One small criticism about the bathroom was the plinth the basin was mounted on. It had righted angled corners and we both bruised out legs on it because it was so close to the door. The corners should have been rounded off. Breakfast is continental style self service and there was plenty of it. We did experience one problem in our room (107) was the smell of sewage in the mornings. I think it was a sewer problem outside rather than in the hotel We weren't driving but as far as I could see there were no parking facilities which could be an issue if you arrive by car

Flight delayed so missed the first night of our week long stay, was told that the booking had been cancelled as we didn't show up and were told we would have to pay another £500! AVOID! Horrendous Service

I travel to London frequently with business and I stayed via late rooms in June 2017. The Hotel was advertised as 20% off, it was £93 and I often make a decision to stay somewhere of around £100 mark this could usually be a good 3 star and sometimes 4 star and I expect cleanliness,quality and a comfortable bed. This hotel is neither of those things, it is closer to a hostel than a hotel. The sheets were stained, the headboard was stained, the carpet was stained, there was water ingress coming down the wall, generally the bad reviews on here give an accurate description. The mattress was especially uncomfortable and generally the place was filthy. It is the only place so far that I have felt compelled to take photographs as it was that bad. I was very tired on my arrival and like many others just got on with it as it was too late to get anywhere else and as I had a meeting the following morning I just got on with it, I slept (not very well) above the mattress in my clothes and looked forward to a long and clean bath when I returned home. Needless to say I wont be staying at this one again- eeeww!

I wouldn't normally stay this far out of London central but I needed a good connection to Hackney Central - and the overground Fichley and Frognal stop is 3 mins walk from this hotel. The hotel itself is a nice period building. The staff are friendly. We were driving and there is no parking nearby this hotel. We had to leave the car 20 mins walk away, in an underground carpark which cost £10 a day. We were staying on the 2nd floor in a street facing room. The rooms are noisy - the doors are heavy and close with such a bang so be prepared to be woken by your neighbours. The rooms have NO AIRCON - so if staying during the summer months - they will be very hot. The sun shines in the front windows all day. We went out and bought a fan from the supermaket across the road for our stay. It was only 24oC but the rooms are very stuffy. There was building work taking place across the road which started at 8am every morning. The windows are single glazed so even with the window closed - the noise outside is pretty bad. No sleep ins for us ;-) The 'double bed' was actually two single beds put together. We could feel the join when we slept. The cold tap didn't work in our room - the shower was very hot - no matter what setting you put it on. Our bathroom sink also blocked - we reported this to the hotel and they cleared it straight away. This hotel is cheap by London Standards - so you get what you pay for. But personally I would not stay again. Try to find a good deal on a better quality hotel.

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).
