The Langorf Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Awful. Threadbare carpets in room and stairs, damp wallpaper peeling off near the ceiling, toilet leaking onto floor, paint cracked in en-suite, lampshades bubbling with age, desk/dressing table, bedside cabinets, coffee table all peeling. Just shockingly bad. Nice quiet street though, actually slept quite well, but then it was a heavy night. No cooked breakfast available - really????

I used this hotel for many years and put friends and family there regularly. Went back myself this week and while pleased that it keeps the old family atmosphere and the prices are really reasonable, it really needs a refurbishment. The carpets are truly awful and must not have been changed for a very long time. While the sheets and towels were very clean and so was the bathroom the bedcover was also a bit dodgy. Good points was a large safe, good wifi, and the room was really spacious and warm. It wouldn't take much to make it in a really good hotel again but the carpets in particular are a real problem.

The hotel is a dump - that is all I can say other than the room was dirty, the carpets worn and only while I was peeing in toilet did I realize that the open window was giving my neighbours an intimate view of me urinating. This hotel is in desperate need of refurbishment and new management.

Staff are very friendly and helpful. Hotel is a bit tired looking but value for money going by London prices. Continental breakfast was good and nice variety. Location is good. I would stay again as basic as it was but good value.

Although I have put friends and family into this hotel several times - we live close by - I will never do so again. The last experience was pretty shocking. Some rooms have been refurbished, and others have not been touched for many years. On this visit my guests were first put into a triple room which was NOT one of the fresh looking ones. This was disappointing, but although it was shabby and very old fashioned, it was tolerable, so we made the best of it. However, after checking out to make a visit elsewhere for a night, we were put back into an executive double room which was totally unusable. The toilet stopped flushing, the fan made a loud noise, waking everyone up when the bathroom light went on in the night. The bathroom was not just chipped, faded and old fashioned, but actually dirty. I could scrape filth off the tiles with my fingernails, and the idea of using the bathtub was nauseating. We asked for a replacement room and we were shown to the bottom floor where as soon as the lift door opened, we detected an obvious and obnoxious smell. We looked out of the window and saw a pool of dirty, stinking water with pieces of toilet tissue visible (was this sewage?) Disgusting. I would like to add that the breakfast is only passable at best, and a that certain amount is made each day and not refilled, so if - for example - the hard boiled eggs are gone, they are gone, and no more will be provided. Wi-fi is really bad, so if you hope to conduct business in the hotel, you will be very disappointed. The staff are pleasant and apologetic, but that is simply not enough. I am not sure how the place keeps operating in the condition it is. A lot of money needs to be spent, or they should close the doors.

The Langorf is a bit run down - chipped tiles in the bathroom, marks on wallpaper, although kept clean. Breakfast was good with many selections. - all cold. Good meats, cheeses, cereals and pastries, along with hard boiled eggs. Biggest issue for me was the unreliability of the WiFi. Signal was weak a good part of the time.

Discovered this hotel while looking to book a short stay while attending a concert at a Wembley, while avoiding the grossly over-priced hotels within the Stadium complex. The Langford turned out to be ideal. Situated on a quiet residential street on the edge of Hampstead/Swiss Cottage, yet only a 2 minute walk from the bustling thoroughfare of Finchley Road. Very close to the Finchley Road Tube Station which is only one stop from Wembley and a 15 min journey from Central London. Comfortable room, well stocked continental breakfast and friendly, helpful staff. Good value at £115 for a double room incl breakfast (late June).

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!
