Guilford Hotel has a good location, clean rooms and helpful staff. Breakfast was a letdown as it just had toasted bread and coffee/ juice. No drinking water bottles in the room or bathing soap in the bathroom.

I couldn't have asked for more. Incredible value for money in a prime location, no hassle you're just left to do your own thing. Would happily rate it 5/5 if it weren't for the human faeces smeared across the toilet. 4/5 would stay again

I found a previous guest's chewed gum in my soap dish. I asked housekeeping to sort this out, and the gum was removed but the dish was not cleaned. My TV aerial was poorly connected, leading to a regular need for waggling, and, horror, missing 5 minutes of Downton Abbey. My ground-floor room was between the front door and reception,... More

Needed a room in London since I was there for work and decided to book this hotel at the last minute. The room was small and quite dreary and as tiny as a prison cell. So much so that even though I was planning to do some work in my room in the evening I went and found a local... More

We arrived September 3, 2013 and cancelled the 2nd night and stayed at The Bedford instead. You get what you pay for. The room was a 10'x10' cell with a pre-fab bathroom (the kind you'd see on an airplane, but with a shower). Only room for one. It had wonderful WiFi, and all the necessary amenities, clean, but SMALL! It... More

I chose this hotel despite all the poor reviews here because it was the only place I could find for an overnight stay in busy London on a Saturday within staggering distance of a venue I was attending. I was happy with the venue. Yes, it's clearly seen better days. Yes, the rooms are tiny and the en-suite bathroom is... More

Hotel location is good, less than 10 mins walk to Russell Sq station. Nearby station has Tesco and some eatery, there's also bars, a shopping area with Waitrose supermarket too. Hotel is old and not easily access with luggages because only tiny staircase to access the levels. My room's heater was not working properly, very cold in March. Room size... More

Central location ten minutes walk from nearest underground. Well worn although seemed clean enough. En-suite bathroom was a corner cabinet like found in a caravan which was unusual to say the least. Unfortunately had some very noisy people in a nearby room who thankfully finally left about 2am. Not particularly cheap, ok for a last minute stay if you cannot... More
