The best thing about this hotel is the fantastic central location enabling easy access to any part of London and outside London, as its so close to Paddington Station for trains and subways and also taxi rides to nearby locations which are cheaper than subways if you're travelling in a group and faster. There are many restaurants within short walking... More

This small hotel was ideally located between 2 tube stations in central London. The room was tiny, but this was expected. Unless you are willing to pay top $, all rooms are. We had a decent bed, small shower and toilet, and minimal furnishings with a TV, desk and armoire. Very clean and quiet. A variety of restaurants (including fast... More

I stayed at the London house hotel the night before moving here. They are geographically close together but miles apart in terms of quality. The rooms are basic, as with the other hotel but there is no sense of class here. The room is pokey and not as appealing. It's fine to just sleep in. There are no coffee making... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel though I do find a few points mentioned to be a little unfair. Whilst I admit that the London House Hotel is a very good hotel I need to point out that the prices reflect the difference in quality between the properties. For example, this Sunday we are charging just... More

The hotel was clean and within walking distance of the underground. However, there was a strange smell and the room was not very quiet, there were noises all night from telephones ringing and staff moving about. The locks were quite antiquated and assistance was often required in getting in and out of room. Friendliness of the staff was maybe 50/50,... More

I was staying in London for just a night and on the night I choose the prices where outrageous everywhere but this hotel was downright cheap. It's in a very nice neighborhood, had wifi and a free breakfast. The room was tiny but clean and that's all I expected. 5 minute walt to the very bottom end of Hyde Park.

Found through 'late rooms' at last minute - single room great price for bed and continental breakfast. Location great, 5 mins from Bayswater tube and one change to Covent garden / Leicester square area. Room was very small but clean, tidy and well thought out. Comfortable sleep. Breakfast did what it said on the tin. All staff I met friendly... More

It was such a good experience to stay at Garden Court Hotel. Nice, clean and quiet. Such a friendly staff all the time and we really felt at home. Very relaxing, so when we go to London, we will stay there again for sure. Anja, Nibe-Denmark

We have stayed at this hotel several times over the last 10 years. We agree that the hotel is centrally located, convenient to tube stops, and several restaurants are within a few blocks. The lobby was staffed and clean. The noise on the street was quieter, as the local hostel visitors were less noisy than in previous visits. To add... More

We just returned from our trip around the UK, we had a great time. Staying in London at this place, nice area with plenty of restaurants in the area. Close to the tube. Room was very small and food just ok, the place needs some work
