We guarantee that all our feedback is genuine and can only be submitted by people who have booked through our websites.
Dr Girish Lala, July 2014: Excellent location and value for money. Basic but more than adequate rooms and facilities (crappy towels though!). Unbeatable combination of location and facilities for the money. Would definitely stay there again.
Mr Katherine Kelly, July 2014: Room very clean and comfortable. Stairs issue with suitcases as lift didn't go directly to room level. Staff helpful.
Mrs stella hobley, July 2014: Room basic but very clean. Nice touch to get tea and coffee facilities and a bottle of water. Fan was v welcome since it was very hot.
Good value for money
Mrs Viviane Heidenreich, July 2014: Very nice place with a wonderful staff.
Miss Yan Shan Ang, July 2014: Overall good experience, clean and pleasant environment.
Mrs Yvonne Warren, July 2014: We had a wonderufl time from the moment we checked in - excellent staff, nice rooms with good view of the Albert Hall, quite and clean, breakfast excellent - we would book again. thanks.
Mr Evan Cruickshank, July 2014: Excellent value. Welcoming staff and having access to the swimming pool was a bonus. Situation couldn't be bettered.
Mrs Jennifer McCreath, July 2014: Overall our stay was excellent. Room was clean and had everything we needed for an overnight stay. We were a bit worried after arriving after an 8 hour journey to have the girl booking us in tell us there was no record of our booking, despite presenting all of the initial paperwork. In the end after many confused facial expressions and no eye contact, she managed to find our booking which was not in Beit Hall, but in their sister accommodation over in Prince's Gardens. Not knowing London at all as it was our first visit, this caused a bit of anxiety (as I had worked out all of our directions beforehand), but once booked in all else went well.
Mr Taiwo Oluwasesan Oni, July 2014: Your overall performance is good.
Miss Nicola Good, July 2014: Great location and atmosphere. Really enjoyed my stay.
Mr OLUSEGUN OGUNDAPO, July 2014: Your service is good with excellent house keepers and receptionists .
Ms Anne Russell, July 2014: I had an exceptional service from reception and other staff,thank you
Mrs Tina Burns, July 2014: Overall, the accommodation was good - clean and comfy and all of the staff we met were friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were substantial and there was plenty of choice to suit all tastes. We didn't have any chance to try any of the sports facilities, too busy! The Eastside bar was excellent - we had Mezze which was well done and the drinks were nicely presented. The store was useful - especially being open until 9pm. I have only a couple of niggles;- the luggage storage is not at all secure - I felt that anyone could have walked in and taken stuff, especially at busy times ; secondly, no mirror anywhere near a plug socket in the room - I regard that as an essential basic requirement - had I known, I would have bought one with me - Many thanks
Mr PHILIP POLLARD, July 2014: Great location for really cheap price! Bed was a bit hard, but expected given you are in Uni Halls! Staff friendly and helpful. If you just want a basic room then this service is brilliant.
Mrs Carolyn Jackson, July 2014: Excellent value for money and suburb location. Will definitely consider re booking next time I visit London.
Mr Bruce Burford, July 2014: Didn't have breakfast so couldn't comment on it but overall very good accommodation.

Ms Alison Dixon, September 2013: Much better experience than our last visit. Check in staff were polite and efficient. We were not told that we had to have our check in card stamped to visit the gym so had to come back to get this. Breakfast still chaotic, more room needed.
Mr Giancarlo Lorena, September 2013: Stayed here for 6 days while attending a scientific conference in Imperial College.

Mr John Williams, September 2013: We were pleased with the location and how very helpful the staff were.

Mrs janet l ferrier, September 2013: This was my second stay at this address and the standards were just as good as before. My two friends who were visiting for the first time were equally impressed.

Ms Mary Kipouropoulos, September 2013: I was very happy with my stay at Beit Hall. I first stayed there several years ago and while the price of rooms has increased, the number and quality of services has also improved immensely (gym, swimming pool, etc). I look forward to staying at Beit Hall again some time in the future.
Miss Maria Pereira, September 2013: Great great accomodation, but you need to improve your breakfast, in addition to the english breakfast you must serve a continental breakfast. But you accomplished a nice standard overall.
Ms Trudy Robertson, August 2013: Accommodation clean and comfortable. Staff all lovely. Scrambled eggs and breakfast were always cold but the rest of the breakfast good. Would recommend staying there to anyone and will be back myself. Thanks.
Dr Eirini Saratsi, August 2013: The room was fine for the price we paid for such central and excellent location. The quality of the breakfast was average but still satisfactory. The only negative experience we had was that the girl at the reception did not bother to explain us how we can find our room and it was a little confusing to find it.
Ms Gwenda Lewis, August 2013: Fabulous accommodation, thank you. I was attending a prom and proximity to the Albert hall was fantastic. I went to Royal Holloway College many years ago and the whole experience took me back to my student days, in a good way!

Miss Qinghui Feng, August 2013: really love this place, convenient location.

Miss Jane Barker, August 2013: Extremely useful for one-night stays when visiting the Proms. I got to know about the service when I came on a work trip to the Kensington museums with my employer, Derby University, last year. Would recommend it to anyone visiting the museums and/or the Proms.
Mrs Fiona Clarke, August 2013: A very reasonable, comfortable stay. The university is in an excellent location. I found the staff very helpful, good breakfast. It is the 2nd time I have stayed here and will certainly do so again.

Mrs Doreen Bravery, August 2013: This was our first time staying in Halls of Residence at any university, and having worked at Imperial in years gone by, I thought it would be worth trying. We had a great experience, particularly as we had a wonderful view of the Royal Albert Hall and the Royal College of Music. I will recommend this to others. We hope to return again to make more use of the facilities (we did not have the time use the sports facilities) and the location. Thank you again.
Mrs Susan Howles, August 2013: Have used before & have widely recommended to friends

Mrs Pat Horn, August 2013: Another great stay at Beit Hall. An efficient and welcoming reception whicn appeared to be manned 24 hours. Overall the accomodation is excellent for a short stay. Functional room with tea/coffee making facilities and a very clean en-suite. The breakfasts have vastly improved and are now excellent with loads of choice. Drinks and cooked food are available during the day from the Hall bar and for the area are reasonably priced. The Hall is well served by bus routes and is within easy walking distance of Underground stations. Tremendous value for money and I would highly recommend it.
Mrs Sarah Waller, August 2013: Easy to find - we were attending concert in the Royal Albert Hall so location perfect, helpful reception - bottle of water in the room was lovely, room basic but comfortable - would definitely recommend to friends
Dr NINO KHATIASHVILI, August 2013: In July I was at the scientific conference in the Imperial College and was accommodated at Beit Hall.
It was excellent budget accommodation in central London. Room was comfortable and clean with tea-coffee making facilities. Fast internet was available, also sport facilities and good breakfast was included in the room price.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The accommodation is convenient for students and scientists.
Dr. Nino Khatiashvili

Thank you very much!
Mr dev dutt, July 2013: very helpful reception staff both day and also at night.
I shall always stay at the hall
Ms Louise Box, July 2013: Couldn't have had a better room - fabulous outlook. People at reception desk very helpful in the main. Wigi worked well. My only gripe was that there was not a secure place to leave my luggage before check in (only alternative was just near reception). Will recommend you to others.

Miss elizabeth cremin, September 2012: Really enjoyed our overnight at Beit Hall. The location was excellent for us and time spent at Beit Hall was excellent. Everyone we dealt with - from reception in - was most helpful. Many thanks. Elizabeth
Mr david cummings, September 2012: Very reasonable price for this part of London , we would stay again !!
Fr. Elke Hellenbach, September 2012: war leider nur für eine Nacht für ein Konzert in der ROYAL Albert Hall angereist.Hatte von meinem Zimmer aus einen tollen Blick auf die RAH.Zimmer waren sehr sauber,die Mitarbeiter sehr freundlich.Bin total begeistert! Würde jederzeit wieder hier buchen !!!

Enjoyed the breakfast.
Ms Doris Smith, September 2012: Great location: this'll be the first place I look into on future trips to London.

Mrs cynthia WALCOT, August 2012: we really enjoy our visits to IMP COLL. ,its fun to be students again !
so convenient for the RAH !
Mr Andrew Bowman, August 2012: Very good location, friendly staff,
Mr Ian Dixson, August 2012: Second stay at Beit Hall. Room was of a better standard of presentation than previously, in a quiet part of the building, as requested. Check-in was straightforward and we were shown to our room as the building is a bit of a rabbit warren. This really helped. Breakfast was a quiet affair, shared with Russian and Japanese Olympic delegates. Excellent location in the heart of London. Shame we booked relatively late on and could only stay one night. No doubt will be back.
Mr Martin Wilson, August 2012: Would have no hesitation whatever in recommending the service - in fact, I have already done so! The accommodation was very good, and all the staff were cheerful and helpful
Mr DAVID CAIRNS, August 2012: Ideal location for attending Olympics.Would definitely stay here again when visiting London
Mrs Frances Richards, August 2012: Location superb. Facilities clean and functional, although the shower could do with updating (the knob was difficult to turn on and off and required some strength to turn). Staff all friendly. Cooked breakfast fine, although cold. Would nevertheless return on a next visit to London!
Prof Xiangdong Li, August 2012: Very good location and value for money.
Mr Mark Burleigh, July 2012: A truly excellent place to stay. so much so, that I have booked another weekend so that I can experience my stay there again.

Mrs Lesley Beard, July 2012: We were very impressed with the standard of the accommodation and friendly and helpful young staff
Ms Gwenda Lewis, July 2012: I attended Prom number 2 and proximity to the Royal Albert Hall was wonderful. I also appreciated being able to access the Eastside restaurant and Beit Hall bar as the prices were very reasonable. (I paid over £8 for a glass of wine at the Albert Hall!!!)
I was a student at Royal Holloway College from 1980 to 1984 and it reminded me of being a student!
Excellent service which I will use again and recommend to others
Mrs judy kuffel, July 2012: Our stay at the Imperial College was excellent. The location is perfect for anything you want to do in London. I t also had excellent access to the trains.
Mr Evelyne Van der Niepen, July 2012: A great place to stay when in London. Friendly staff and peaceful neighbourhood. The breakfast is all right, although an option of fresh fruit would be a good addition. The rooms are very spacious and clean. I would recommend this accommodation to other people.
Ms Sue Hunter, July 2012: Good facility, great location. Staff were helpful. Would stay here again.
Mrs Jillian Chew, July 2012: This really was a most satisfactory place to stay. The staff were most curteous. Would definitely rebook again
Mrs Ruth Freedman, July 2012: An "oasis" in London. Especially good for Albert Hall. We also used the leisure facilities - pool and steam room were super. Overall outstanding value for money.
Mrs Marian Selby, July 2012: A most convenient location, everyone helpful and friendly. Standard of room and breakfast better than many higher priced hotels. A return visit is a must. Thank you
Mrs LINDA FELGATE, July 2012: Haven't stopped here for about 7 years and was very pleased to find standards as high as previously .
Ms Helen Butler, July 2012: The location was ideal for us, and the people at reception unfailingly helpful and cheerful. Breakfast was delicious and offered a wide range of choices - loved the fresh fruit salad! The only suggestion we would make is that the pillows in the rooms were very small. It would be helpful to have two of that size or one more substantial one. Thanks for everything - we've already recommended Beit Hall to others.
Miss Gertrude Wright, July 2012: An excellent place to stay in London. Basic but I only used it to sleep. It is also very central for sight seeing.
Mr Thomas Neacy, July 2012: Second time to stay here - again very happy with accomodation & will return !
Mrs Connie Tantrum, July 2012: Very satisfied with everything, - wonderful location, safe, clean, and friendly.
Miss Elizabeth Heslewood, September 2011: As usual I was impressed by the helpfulness and friendliness of the Reception staff. My room was beautifully clean and well equipped!
Oh dear, the breakfast! There was a lot of it, and it was better than last year! I've been staying at Beit for eleven years now and hopefully for another eleven! It is fantastic value for money, and I wouldn't stay anywhere else!!
Dr Elaine Windle, September 2011: We had a wonderful stay. The location was perfect for us - just next door to the Albert Hall. The room was clean and functional. The breakfast was superb. Thanksyou.
Dr peter worthington, August 2011: A very pleasant stay. Quiet, convenient and relaxed.
Miss Judith Ennis, August 2011: This is THE place to stay in the summer if you want to visit The Proms! Ideal location, clean and comfortable rooms at a very good rate. Couldn't be better.
Miss stefania magnani, August 2011: Great location. Near to Royal Albert Hall and to the underground. Excellent price!!! It will be my first choice when we'll come back to london in august!!!!
Miss Jane Hines, August 2011: Wi-fi in room would be great, but overall a wonderful place to stay.
Mrs Barbara Pitson, August 2011: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in LIC - it was a great experience and one we hope to enjoy again. Our room was large and the beds comfortable. The only small gripe was the lack of a mirror in the room although there was a large one in the shower room. Everything worked perfectly and the room was cleaned daily including replenishing of tea/coffee making facilities. Breakfast time was busy but seemed to work seamlessly with enormous portions served quickly and efficiently.
We had a couple of meals in East Side bar which were delicious and the staff all worked extremely hard.
Finally - the position of this uni is perfect for a stay in central London. The no. 9 bus runs every few minutes from outside Hyde Park to Piccadilly.
Annie Wheatley, July 2011: Good value, no-frills accommodation in an excellent location - with nearby buses and tubes to take you anywhere you want to go. Wide range of ages and nationalities staying in the halls and safe and interesting surroundings for a retired country-mouse-visiting-the-city like me. Clean, tidy rooms and a bit of a scrum for breakfast: back to life as a student!
Mr Rob Henstock, July 2011: Very enjoyable night's stay. Good breakfast.
Joan Masters, September 2010: First night was freezing - no heating. but appreciated the extra duvet provided on request. I would have thought the coffee/tea/shower gel would have been renewed each day automatically as it would be for one night stays. An extension lead would have been useful so the kettle didn't have to boiled on the floor and a hairdryer could be used. But the location is fantastic for the price and reception staff couldn't have been more helpful so would certainly come again
Yeung Ka Ying, September 2010: overall is good, good location, clean the room everyday, the toilet is clean, the bathroom is clean, but the outside is a bit noise in the mid-night.
Mark Caldwell, September 2010: Although I was concerned about noise from the quadrangle on the first night the problem didn't happen on subsequent nights.
I will certainly consider staying at Imperial again in the future if I'm staying in London and will suggest it to others.
Sarah O'neill, September 2010: Excellent accommodation and very helpful staff!
Leonard Brown, September 2010: Always a delight to stay at Imperial on my visits from Canada.
Great Breakfasts! THANKS.
Miss Grace A. Buckley, September 2010: Perfect place for an overnight stay, particularly if you are a woman on your own and want a sense of security. Staff were great and I am recommending to all my friends
RAVINDRA G, September 2010: Internet access was slow / Wifi was weak. A facility to print docs for a reasonable fee would be useful.A microwave oven in the rooms would be useful as well. Breakfast was excellent. Housekeeping, particularly attending to fused bulbs or clogged drains or replenishing bath / tea-coffee items was found wanting.Maybe there could be one attendant to take care in the evening hours. Otherwise location, easy access and the Imperial Brand name make the residences great VFM. I have no hesitation in recommending to business / casual visitors looking for decent accommodation at sub-100 ppd.
Laurence Frost, September 2010: Room was a little 'tired' with some rust and flaking of paint and fittings in the shower. One of the biggest problems was no easy access to drinking water. Despite the kitchen area being opposite the room I was allocated this was double locked and I had no access to water, other than the 500ml provided to the room to cover the 2 days I was staying. The staff were very friendly, polite and efficient.
Mrs j v wallace, September 2010: We truly enjoyed our stay, both had perfect night's sleep (we expected it to
be noisy with students). Breakfast to die for! Everywhere sparklingly clean. The young ladies on Reception were delightful, so helpful and kind.
We have the dates you are open next year and intend to stay with you again during the summer, as well as for The Big Sing. Our first visit.
lisa darkin, September 2010: Perfect location for a night after the proms
John Lyon, September 2010: Didn't have breakfast - I left too early to go to LHR. I will use your booking system again
David M. French, September 2010: Great location...within walking of bus stops as well as the Tube station .
My wife and I are retired and travel internationally often . Beit Hall is a great budget location . We would not hesitate staying there again when in London .
David and Jill
Andrew Squires, September 2010: I'll definitely be recommending university rooms to others and will be utilising your services again in the future.
Excellent location and value for money!
The directions to the accommodation from the tube station were very useful.
Rob Edwards, September 2010: Great locationa and great value.
Kathryn Bowers, September 2010: It would have been ideal to have WiFi available in all rooms. The location was, however, ideal for the Royal Albert Hall, and we knew we were booking into an old hall.
Edward Bannister, September 2010: We would have preferred a room looking into the quadrangle rather than out at the road but we thought the location was excellent for visiting a number of important cultural sites. Would definitely recommend and will visit again next summer.
Brian Ridgers, September 2010: excellent - I made a point of re booking from last year and the standards have not changed. Thankyou see you next September
Peter Karch, September 2010: What great value for money, and such a convenient location for the Proms. My second year, and hope to return next August.
Christel Chater, September 2010: The staff at reception was very welcoming, polite and helpful - at all times, e.g. booking a taxi for our departure the night before. We would definitely like to stay again.
Jean McCarthy, September 2010: A nice clean room, only quibble would be that there was only one pillow which was quite thin but that's a personal thing. Would definitely use again especially for late night Proms!
Dawn Lord, September 2010: Very handy for the Proms!!!
Good value for London.
Dr L E Friday, September 2010: Excellent place to stay for the Proms.
T Markus, September 2010: Appreciated the upgrade to Southside. Best place to stay when attending the Proms.
Lorraine van Blerk, September 2010: Very helpful staff on reception.
Alison Woodley, September 2010: Lovely staff in reception. I asked for am extra pillow and it was there when I returned to tne room. All very helpful and organised.
Also, a wonderful quiet room!
Glennis Dix, September 2010: Every year I thoroughly enjoy staying at Beit Hall. The location is superb as I use it as a base for the Proms. The new bar/cafe facilities at Eastside are absolutely brilliant - the food is superb and the staff are extremely friendly. The standard is that of a high class restaurant, but at very low cost. Please pass my congratulations to the chef and other staff! Might I suggest, however, that you keep the prices low for students there, but have a slightly higher price for those like myself, ie non-students?
I'm looking forward to staying with you next summer.
Incidentally, I have stayed on one occasion, a few years ago, in a self-catering appartment for 4/5 people, which was stunning, in Prince's Gardens (number 46?47?). Is that still available for people like me to rent?
Thank you very much!
STEPHEN PEARSALL, September 2010: The shower did not work, and the window had to be wedged open with a bottle.
However the room was clean, the breakfast choice excellent and the reception staff very helpful indeed. The en suite was a pleasant surprise. Excellent value for money- I will be staying again!
Peter Maguire, August 2010: As there was a central garden/courtyard at the halls it did mean that there were people outside the garden facing rooms until after midnight. Also the corridor doors hd very strong springs so every time someone went along the corridor the door banged.
Terry Hannigan, August 2010: Returning visitor for Proms. The usual high standard. Thank you. Hope to return for 2011 season
John Gill, August 2010: The most ideal location for going to the Proms. Hope the same rates will apply next year.
Jennifer Avery, August 2010: Absolutely brilliant time, perfect for what we needed. No complaints at all, only praise!
Madonna Brown, August 2010: A great alternative for a cheaper stay in London. fabulous location. very clean & comfortable
AMANDA DOBIE, August 2010: Very convenient location for RAH. A bit gloomy as one of the 2 room lights and the desk lamp were not working.
Mrs Christine Mattinson, August 2010: This is an excellent facility and all good. The room was fine, little bit of basic painting/cleaning needed on windows and bathroom but acceptable and excellent value for London and the Royal Albert Hall.
Sue Churchill, August 2010: Beit Hall is a great place to stay in the centre of London, especially if your are attending The Proms as we were.
The room was basic, as we had expected, but it was clean and served us well.The breakfast was very good value indeed. We would certainly stay again and will recommend it to our friends.
Mark Marston, August 2010: Room clean and everything worked well - good showers, comfy beds
Location next to Albert Hall was brilliant
Could give more help on parking cars. parked in street as campus parking was not available until the evening which seemed strange,
Julie Simpson, August 2010: We enjoyed our stay at Beit Hall very much. We were very impressed by the friendliness of the staff, the cleanliness of the room and the location. We consider the accommodation to be excellent value for money and a great location for London attractions. We've already recommended the accommodation to family and friends and we hope to stay here again.
Howard Parker, August 2010: A very comfortable, relaxing and peaceful stay. Also very convenient for attending the Proms next door at the Royal Albert Hall!! It's a shame this accommodation is not available all year round.
Mary Byrne, August 2010: Great location with easy travel access. Very enjoyable stay. Thank you.
Geoffrey McNab, August 2010: The welcome was warm and welcoming. Room 147 was an excellent size with a splendid view across the rear flight of steps down from the Albert Hall which, on balance, I preferred to one facing into Beit quadrangle. I was impressed with the firmness of the mattresses, bearing in mind it was student accommodation. The bathroom was small but perfectly adequate with a surprisingly strong shower. One minor matter of housekeeping for you - the toilet roll holder is coming away from the wall owing to wear and tear, not that this was a problem for us in any way. The walk from Beit House to the breakfast building was much shorter than I expected. The breakfast was substantial and very pleasant, especially as we managed to get a table for two by the window. All in all it was an enjoyable and highly satisfactory visit. I shall be recommending not only to my colleagues (Queen's University, Belfast) but also to adult students who attend my 'Travel Talk' series of lectures. This is a twice a year course I run teaching older people (in the Lifelong Learning section) how to use the Internet for their travels! I left in the firm belief Rom 147 had been EXCELLENT value for money. I will be back!
Estelle Wishart, August 2010: most convenient. Clean and warm room. Super value. Very helpful and pleasant reception staff
Daniel Lockwood, August 2010: The people at the front desk were very helpful, informative, and kind. The room was comfortable, and the breakfast was great. Good deal. Thanks.
M A Knight, August 2010: Great rooms, good staff, good food. All in all, best value for money in London.
Judith Correa, August 2010: All the staff we came in contact with were very good and always helpful. Would definately stay again and recommend to friends.
RICHART VAZQUEZ ROMAN, August 2010: I strongly believe that it was a good deal considering the cost. I would suggest though the free access to internet since this is given in all hotels for free.
VERONICA COOK, August 2010: My compliments to the staff on reception, who were pleasant and cheerful and to the housekeeping staff for the high standard of their work.
It is always a pleasure to stay at Beit Hall.
Peter Nasrallah, August 2010: Overall good and cheap accommodation for a budget. Location is fantastic. Breakfast becomes boring. Internet access is excellent.
Mr P F Young, August 2010: The breakfast experience, in terms of the sheer numbers of people being fed, was not for the faint-hearted. Some warning in the publicity blurb that Prom concert-goers who book in to Imperial College rooms would find themselves among hordes of student groups would have alerted us to the fact that we were not going to experience cloistered calm!
Ann Woollacott, August 2010: overall we enjoyed our visit to Beit Hall and would highly recommend it to others.
angelika stuesser, August 2010: a truly great place to stay, felt like a campus student again!!! Beit hall has lots of characte, the staff was ever so friendly n helpful. i was amazed how quiet it was at night due to my room outlooking onto the quadrangle. i will come and stay again, for sure!!!!
valerie fichet, July 2010: All was good, excepted my room: I was very disappointed to not have a real double/twin like pictures on website, but a single with a second bed. I travel with my daughter, and that'ld be more comfortable.
Next year , i wish coming again,
see you soon
Miranda Paton, July 2010: Very nice people! Thanks
Max Heistinger, July 2010: good value for money; we enjoyed our stay.
Alston, July 2010: Wonderful position,great room, great service. Loved it . Thankyou.
DERWENT SWAINE, July 2010: ALL staff particularly pleasant, helpful and efficient.
VERONICA COOK, July 2010: The standard of cleanliness was excellent - my congratulations to your hosekeeping staff
Kirsty Muir, July 2010: Thoroughly delighted with everything, heard about it after my dad recommended Beit Hall to me and I have recommended to a friend too.
carmel spicer, July 2010: I am not very mobile but they managed to put me into a room with only 5 steps to climb. The room I had first been given over the phone had, unfortunately, not been cleaned that day, so I was immediately put into a room that was fully prepared for a new guest. I needed more pillows with which I was happily supplied.
The reception desk couldn't have been more helpful and I fully enjoyed my time there.
Terry Hannigan, July 2010: Beit Hall is a superb location for the Proms. My scoring isn't just a halo, repetition effect but reflect comparisons from the days before I discovered Imperial.
Collette Eales, July 2010: Good value for money; exceptionally clean; very pleasant helpful staff. One room was clearly a twin room, two beds, two desks, two wardrobes, two chairs, 2 lights etc; the other was obviously a single room with an extra put up bed, one chair, one wardrobe and was too small fot two people. The beds were too hard for a middl aged lady - me! The younger members of the party were fine. overall a good experience.
bernadette mc gowan nolan, July 2010: only problem was that it was noisy but the location was excellent for a visit to london with my 18 y.o. daughter and we loved the college athmosphere
Garyle Voss, July 2010: Everyone was very helpful. I loved that the World Cup was made available to everyone!
Helen Kay, July 2010: Single room was excellent value for money (£50) in central London - clean, quiet, comfortable bed and helpful staff. Have recommended it to friends.
Gerda Stenderup Pedersen, July 2010: We would like to come again - have also recommended you for friends who are going to London later this summer.
Zara Svensson, July 2010: I was extremely impressed! Staff on the desk were very helpful. The room was spacious, clean & well-equipped. I will definitely book again.
Caron Miller, July 2010: I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness,helpful staff,and great breakfast if a little chaotic. After a disappointing stay at a tired Travel lodge in Kings Cross earlier in the week at a higher rate without breakfast, it was an oasis of calm and very welcoming,with tea making facilities and water.We also took advantage of the swimming pool and had a cheap drink in the bar.I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay in London.
C A Ball, July 2010: excellent quality of room and service - very good value for only a little money
Mrs L Stevens, July 2010: Surprised not to be able to drink the tap water but a water cooler was provided in reception area. It would have been helpful to have the cooler pointed out on arrival. We greatly appreciated the provision of a fan in the bedroom. Staff very helpful and pleasant. Great location, very clean.
Maria Leptin, July 2010: extremely nice and very competent maths student at the reception on the night of our arrival (Friday July 2nd).
We didn't have breakfast, so can't comment
Mrs Ada Roberts, July 2010: Reception staff very polite and efficient.
wendy parry, July 2010: the service from the front desk was outstanding. the staff was most helpful. i enjoyed my stay at the residence and would have no hesitation in recommending your facility.
Imréné Sarkadi Ágnes, July 2010: I was really satisfied with the accommodation and the helpful and friendly attitude of the staff (the receptionists and assistants at the breakfast).
The housekeeping service was also great.
The location is perfect:very nice bulidings, quiet and safe neighbourhood.
Janet Wright, July 2010: The bottle of drinking water in room on arrival was most welcome. I liked having an en-suuite for a single room which is not always possible to find. Two very quiet nights, with some noise (doors closing) on third night. Breakfast was a wide choice which was lovely, the tea and coffee from the drinks machines was awful though.
Sheila Fairclough, July 2010: Good value for money in central London and we appreciated our request for a quiet room. The room was very clean and there was constant hot water. Supplying a fan in the very hot weather was a welcome idea. Would use again. However we would have liked the complimentary bottles of water to be replaced when used. We were told as policy this only happened on the first day. The sign in the bathroom instructed us not to drink water from the tap and we did not have access to a kitchen. what is the difference between the room being let to 6 separate couples on 6 different nights and to one couple for 6 nights?
Brian Pedley, July 2010: Great value London accommodation, close to underground and museums. Nice welcoming staff. But two grumbles. Didn`t do breakfast because the directions for getting there were yoo complicated. I stayed on a hot sticky, midsummer night, but the only ventilation was a window that opened just a few inches. An electric fan would have been a help.
Leena Sukselainen, July 2010: wireless internet could be better in the rooms
PAOLO, July 2010: excellent quality / price will advise to other people
Regards Paul Posar
Tõnu Meidla, July 2010: Booking was easy and fast. The room contained all essentials, but needed some fixing and refreshing (paint was flaking off both in the sleeping room and in the bathroom). Lack of air conditioning could be regarded normal in this price segment but it was still rather hard to survive in this particular case, because of very high summer temperatures outside. A good surprise was low street noise.
Room service was disappointing (they nearly always forgot something) and lack of drinking water in the room was not very pleasant. I found a "do not drink tap water" label in the bathroom, but a limited quantity of drinking water was provided only on the very first day of my six night stay. Internet connection in the room was available for a special price only.
In summary, it was still quite a good value for this price, regarding the position in the city. Quality of the stay could be much improved by making arrangements for drinking water and for more careful room service. Free internet in the room could be a nice bonus capable of inviting me to book again.
Dilys Wright, July 2010: We shall be using your facilities again !
Stephen Moss, July 2010: great location for our long weekend in London. Comfortable beds & terrific breakfast. High temperatures at night - but the fan helped! Will definitely use again.
