This place was perfect, except that I would have preferred a single room on the upper floors. There was no airconditioning and no fan, so the room would be rather stuffy during summer. I had to open the windows for ventilation, and from the windows, you get a view of the open grounds where people would sit on the benches,... More

As accommodation rates are skyrocketing throughout London, it is good to know that there is a way out when traveling on a budget. Goldsmid House is such a way: no frills, but a comfy bed and a clean room (en-suite for a surcharge). Also, the location is really convenient... I would definitely return...

I stayed here for 9 days before my dorm opened up for the term, and it was a nice, comfortable and clean room in a building with a solid location. Overall Goldsmid House is a 5 minute walk from Victoria Station and the many tube links it offers, it is within 20 minutes walking of Buckingham Palace, and there are... More

Centrally located and only 2 mins from Victoria Station, this is a great deal for around 40 odd quid a night. Very clean and has security gates (just make sure you remember to lock your door all of the time even when stepping out for a few minutes to the kitchen). As others have said, very good basic student accommodation... More

For £48 per night I got a comfy bed (yes it was basic, but comfy), wardrobe, internet via ethernet, my own bathroom, and equipped kitchen. Bed linen, towel and a bar of soap was provided. You can't beat the location walking distance to the Kings Road and Picadilly. Victoria tube and buses with multitude of destinations right on your doorstep.... More

As others have said, Goldsmid House is cheap (£45 per night), spotlessly clean, basic accommodation, and really useful to have fridges, crockery, cutlery, ovens, kettle, etc in the kitchen It's in a great location - 5 minutes from Victoria, big Sainburys within 100 yards, and 15-20 nice restaurants plus pubs within a 5-minute walk radius. It was hot internally -... More

Very good value when staying in city centre. I was traveling on my own and wasn't looking for anything other than a place to sleep and keep my stuff. Pay laundry and 24 hr security were a plus, friendly front desk. Rooms could have been more spotless, but I considered them clean and in good condition. Bed had a cheap... More

Goldsmid House are dorm rooms for University College London, that are opened up in the summer for visitors (not just students -- people of all ages). It's basically a single en-suite room, 8 rooms per floor, with a shared kitchen. The room decor is very basic, and I ended up buying my own big pillows nearby at Argos for £14... More

Stayed here in June 2010 for a long weekend. Check in was easy and staff very friendly. Secure but not cumbersome entry. Rooms were basic but clean and spacious; couldn't expect more considering the price. Good location as it's only a few mins walk from Victoria station and shops/restaurants.

I stayed here for a few days and found the room good value for the price. Clean and quiet. However, because of the tall buildings around/location, my cell phone had no signal in my room. No in-room tel. either so isolated in case of emergency. Security is poor. My room was broken into and suitcase rifled through when I stepped... More

Dear Sir, Madam, The entrance at Goldsmid House has two doors that can only be opened by FOB’s (key access). In addition to this each bedroom has a unique key and we recommend never to leave your door unlocked even if you are just fetching something from the kitchen. It is possible that someone from your own corridor noticed you... More
