Stayed at this hotel for one night in July as a stay over for my Son's graduation. It was Ok for one night but overall a big disappointing for a four star hotel. The room was very small and weirdly the shower set off the fire alarm if you didn't shut the bathroom door. Reception staff were efficient if not... More

A nice comfortable room, cleanly and simply furnished. Friendly staff, and a good location for seeing the sights of London on a modest budget. A very nice stay. cold buffet breakfast was included in the price, but we didn't opt for it.

Comfortable, clean hotel in good location. Great price which included breakfast....was a bit apprehensive after I booked the hotel and started to read some of the comments on here but really found it to be a great budget hotel....will be returning on my next trip to London. Some people do expect The Ritz even though its a budget hotel !!!!!!!

Smells moldy, minimal showers, un-even floor, the breakfast was not good and awful view. The only thing that is missing are cockroaches. The only thing that was even near average was the beds. The breakfast times were awful so everyone ate at the last minute so it was always tight and you had to squeeze through people to get a... More

perlflaghotels, General Manager at The Oxford Hotel, responded to this review

The guest review is libellious and it should be removed. The review says that coachroaches are missing. This sarcastic approach invalidates any serious review. A valid review should contain facts which are true, which clearly is not the case here. The hotel serves continental breakfast, and the times are widely advertised on our website and it is normal in every... More

Half a day after checking out I discovered that I had forgotten my laptop at the hotel. The staff was exceptionally helpful in tracing it (while I was waiting on the phone) and safe-keeping it till I was back.

The Oxford Hotel is a standard 3 star hotel. It is located in a good location, close to buses and only 15 mins to the City Centre. Our room was clean and efficient for what we wanted.

The morning staff are ok but the night shift staff are very rude and uncooperative. Our heater wasn't working the first 2 nights but they kept saying it's working. The room looked clean but the cleaners didn't even bother to vaccum the place throughout the time we were there. The fridge was moldy and the blankets were disgusting. The hallways... More

The client's review is full of inconsitencies and made up material. For instance the hotel only have wooden floors and not carpets. The client tried to obtain "freebies" like wifi and luggage storage. When the request was denied the client threatened to write bad reviews. The client is trying to compare the hotel with a completely different hotel. The Oxford... More

The hotel is in a perfect location, only a 5 minute walk (even less) from Lancaster Gate station. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff friendly. I stayed with my husband for two nights and we basically only needed a place to sleep and shower, and for the price, we couldn't have asked for more. If we return... More

Stayed overnight while out with friends. The room was clean and appeared to be recently refurbished. Staff were friendly. The location was excellent, very close to Earls Court station. At the price paid, it was great value.
