Frances Gardner House & Langton Close

  1. "I have stayed in lots of places but never rated any before. However, this was so good that I feel motivated to say so! The rooms have everything you need (with the exception of a hairdryer and toiletries). The location is fantastic. It was lovely and clean and quiet and comfortable. Thank you very much! "
  2. "I was really impressed with staff who were friendly and helpful. Gave me a clear map of the area to find my way around. Also added bonus was the free Wi-Fi which I needed to contact family and that really did make it value for money. Thanks again. Will use and recommend to others." 
  3. "Great location and a warm welcome from the team. As a single traveller the room felt very secure." 
  4. "The room was basic but reasonable value for money. It was only a 15 minute walk from Kings Cross & St Pancras stations and there were several convenience stores within easy walking distance. Transport links nearby were also good."

Goldsmid House

  1. "Ideal low cost solution to accommodation in a ridiculously expensive city. I am a business traveller and require only a clean bed and a shower which it provides." 
  2. "Booking was easy and was impressed with the kitchens and the utensils available to use. Also the young man at reception was very helpful to everyone and couldn't do enough to assist with any queries. Best customer service I've seen from anyone in a long while" 
  3. "Having spent the full 81 days of the summer vacation at Goldsmid House, I would have to say that the room and its en-suite, the kitchen facilities, the laundry and drying facilities, the double-gated security, the housekeeping staff, and the three gentlemen at the front desk were first rate. What was there not to like? Nothing. I would be glad to stay there again, and to recommend it to my family and friends. 
  4. "I had a great stay at Goldsmid House. The rooms are comfortable and clean, and having use of the shared kitchen is a real bonus. I felt very safe with the big security gates and 24 hour security staff. I would definitely stay at Goldsmid House again."

Ifor Evans Hall & Max Rayne House

  1. "I had a very enjoyable stay in your establishment. Everyone was helpful and friendly. The ladies doing breakfast were so warm and nurturing I did not want to leave. I will most certainly use your accommodation again and am recommending it to all my friends. Thank you for such a lovely stay."
  2. "I was very happy and comfortable in Ifor Evans Hall. I appreciated a lot the location, the neighbourhood, the quietness of the place and the overall experience of staying in a students' residence. The staff was really nice and care a lot to make the guests feel comfortable. I had a problem with the lock of my room which was immediately solved. So I definitely recommend the place and will certainly go back if I have the chance of visiting Britain again! Walking distance to British Library (15 minutes). Even as a worn undergraduate residence hall, this represented good value for money in London. Good wired internet connection." 
  3. "I would like to suggest your place to friends if they go to London. I had a good time here. Room, bathroom and kitchen are all clean and good. Breakfast is also good. The environment is good. And the underground is not far."

John Dodgson House

  1. "Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. I was delighted to have my room cleaned and linen changed twice during my stay. More than met my expectations. Lovely stay - thank you! "Summer 2017" 
  2. "John Dodgson House offered a great location and a great price for a brief research trip. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the rooms were equipped with everything I needed, including a travel plug adapter. Having an on-site kitchen was a nice plus." 
  3. "The room and kitchen were very well-kept and clean - I will definitely recommend staying here for affordable accommodation at a convenient location. I will definitely come back again! "
  4. "Great value for money. Very happy with facilities. A lot of street noise through the night and into early morning but I suppose this is to be expected in this central location. I would happily use this accommodation again and recommend it to others."

James Lighthill House

  1. "Great value for money. Very happy with facilities. A lot of street noise through the night and into early morning but I suppose this is to be expected in this central location. I would happily use this accommodation again and recommend it to others." 
  2. "People down in the reception were very helpful, room was cleaned once a week. I had a great time there :) " 
  3. "Easy to book through the website - no fuss booking, paying, or checking in. Accommodation is cheap, and well placed in London with a 10 min walk to/from Kings Cross. As expected, facilities were basic but clean. Overall - worth considering for a short stay in central London. " 
  4. "Simple and clean accommodations."

Schafer House

  1. "Staff were incredibly kind and friendly and helped resolve any issues." 
  2. "Very pleasant stay. Clean room, more spacious than expected even. Clean, functional kitchen, well-kept bathrooms. The staff was helpful and friendly, the whole house well managed and safe." 
  3. "Fantastic. So clean! Such friendly people at the front desk! And what a location, near the beautiful Regent's Park, near Warren Street and Euston and Kings Cross tube stations, a Sainsbury's almost next door, great cafes and restaurants nearby as well. Perfect! Many many thanks."
