Yes, it's true, London is an expensive place and the rate of St Monica's guesthouse are more than acceptable. What is not acceptable is the fact that during my stay for work (2 weeks), I was ensured I would have a double room with a private bathroom - but I ended up with a tiny single room with the bathroom...

We opted to stay at this place since we know several friends of ours who stayed there and were never disappointed. We arrived there late in the evening, but were greeted by the sisters and helped in with all our things until we settled down in our room. The room was a cosy one with comfortable beds and a good...

Our stays at St Monica House were always a lovely experience.The nuns make you feel so welcome and they are always very helpful without intruding in your privacy. The rooms are simply decorated but spotless, towels changed daily and the beds comfortable with sweet smelling linen. A TV / dining room / kitchenette in the basement add to the homely... More

Thanks to information provided by a TripAdvisor contributor, last spring I was able to secure comfortable and very affordable lodging for my first visit to London. The guest house was the Augustinian Sisters' Saint Monica's House on Clapham Road, London. It is located in the Kennington district of London, south of the River Thames a few blocks from the Kia...

Myself and my daughter stayed there recently and could not find one thing to complain about. Rooms are small but spotless. The house is so decorative and bright especially the breakfast room. It's a pleasure to sit and eat there. The back garden is an oasis of peace and tranquility. The sisters are so unobtrusive but have plenty of time... More

Do not expect the trappings of a hotel, this is more like a retreat house that is open to the public. The rooms have sparse finishings and very simple accomodations, but the price cannot be beat, the place is relatively near to a subway stop, and the nuns do their best to keep the place clean and homey. With how... More

St Monica House is a charming guest house run by Augustinian nuns in Oval - it's not quite central London, but the qualities of the place make up for that! It's clean and well-kept, with all the basic amenities, with a bus stop just in front of the gates and Oval tube station within walking distance. The rooms are small... More

We have now made use of this place as our base in London on three occasions. The nuns are very very welcoming and not at all intrusive. They are very helpful and go out of their way to help. The bedrooms are always very clean, there is a really sweet common area with wifi and television. Oval is a little... More
