Needed somewhere to stay over night after a theatre show that was reasonably priced and easy to get to. Booked in at about 3:30pm nice and easy. Clean room, small shower area with wc and tiny basin. Tea making and coffee available. tv wifi and phone. Open to return when wanted with night access. plenty availablwchoice at breakfast. Good value for money in central London. I have stayed in much worse and more expensive in my time but it's not the Ritz!

Small rooms, close to the station - perfect for just getting a decent nights sleep. Hotel staff couldn't be friendlier

Simple London Hotel

Posted Dec 14, 2013
Pros: Low cost and proximity to British Museum
Cons: Decoration and facilities in the dining rom were a little tired.
Location: Close to British Nuseum. Not too far from Covent Garden, National Portrait Gallery . The Museum pub was very good.
Simple city hotel. Well managed. Room cleaned and refreshed every day to a good standard. Breakfast had good choice of foods and drinks.Location was fairly convenient for Covent Garden, Brit museum , Trafalgar Square etc. I walked to all these places. Some neat shops around too. I would use it again.

more like a 1 star motel than a hotel. 'ensuite' room is disgusting and dirty. bathroom is horrid and smells. 'breakfast included' includes boxes of korn flakes and nutella spreads with scrambled eggs made by a 12 year old. rooms are very old, chairs broken, only get droplets of water from the shower. this place is in serious and urgent need of renovation!! yuck

If I hadn't pre-paid, I wouldn't have stayed

Pros: Some of the staff were pleasant and helpful.
Cons: clean up the place - the exhaust fans in the bathroom were clgged with gray fluff. The whole place needs to be renewed - it's pretty worn out.
We were 'greeted' by a less than helpful man who told us to get to our room, we'd have to go up two flights of stairs and then down two ... with our suitcases! A maid stopped us at the top of the second flight of stairs and said we could have gone down one flight of stairs and through the kitchen (it was closed for the day so we could sneak through). We went to the room and found it in the basement. It smelled of damp and was really cramped. I returned to the office and told the man that I wanted to move because the room smelled and was just unacceptable. We said we would have to stay in the room that night because there were no others. I told him that I wanted him to take my suitcases to the room since he had sent us up two flights of stairs with my heavy suitcase. He did move the suitcases but I'm sure he wouldn't have if I hadn't pressed the issue. The young man at reception over the remainder of our stay was much more pleasant and helpful. We were moved twice more as rooms became available and he moved them each time. Each of the three rooms in which we stayed was marginally clean and the bathrooms were amazingly cramped - you could sit on the toilet and shower at the same time! The morning foods offered were not great - we opted to get real coffee and a proper breakfast elsewhere.

Arran House Hotel

Posted Sep 2, 2013
Pros: Staff very friendly and obliging, especially the 24 hr on-call managers.Nothing was too much trouble for them.
Cons: Breakfast room a tad stuffy in mid-summer, but couldn't complain about the breakfast.
Location: Brit Museum nearby. Albert Hall & St Martin in Fields on direct bus route from Gower St.
Location, location.Our stay was made so much easier by the location of Arran House being near both bus and underground. Frequent buses stopped outside in Gower Street, giving us easy access to most of London's touristy places. Goodge St Underground was only 5 minute walk away. Some great spots to eat nearby, again within walking distance.
