I booked here completely on chance as the hotels I normally use for work were full, and there was nothing left at the last minute. So my expectations were low, but I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is in a great central location and just a two minute walk from Russell Square station. The person on reception was very friendly... More

This was our first visit to London and we enjoyed our stay at the Harlingford. The location is on a nice side street so the area is fairly quiet, but there was still a nice variety of restaurants and shops near by. A 2-3 block walk takes you to one of the Tube stops and it was a quick ride... More

The Harlingford is a 5 minute walk from Russell Square metro on the Picadilly Line that runs straight into the city from Heathrow (about an hour ride). If you can navigate steps with your luggage, then this is really a good place to stay. My room was small and on the hot side, but I didn't mind. It was perfectly... More

I stayed here this week to take my final university exams at LSE, I presumed there would be wifi so I could get my work done for the week. I went down to reception to let them know I was struggling to get a connection; to which a lady on reception called Liga bluntly said that wifi is only advertised... More

Harlingford, Manager at Harlingford Hotel, responded to this review

Well, this is rather a spiteful review! A short but petulant rant by an angry young man that should have been taught better by his parents, against a girl who tried to help him but whose sole crime seems to be she told him the truth. When he informed the receptionist that he could not acquire Wi-Fi in his room... More

Having visited London more than a dozen times, this hotel is far and away my all time favorite. It is not luxurious and it is not "cheap", but the location is perfect, the rooms are always clean and the breakfast is great - and it's included in the room rate. It's served in a charming dining room that overlooks the... More

I visited London for business and prefer B&B style lodging. I've been doing this for years and amazed at the variety of establishments that provide this in London. I stumbled on the Harlingford by accident when another establishment that I had previous used, and contacted about an upcoming visit, did not have any vacancies and referred me to the Harlingford...

Stayed here for a night in a twin room with a friend, hotel only booked 4 days before trip, hotel was lovely and clean, and central to all that we needed to do, and not very far from Euston station which was handy. Only downside was the noise of the underground at night as we were based on the lower... More

I stayed here with my sister in a twin room (room number 1) on the lower ground floor. What a lovely hotel in a great location. The beds were comfortable. The room was spotless. The breakfast was excellent and was way above my expectations. The staff were helpful and friendly. My friends shared a twin room (number 18) and were... More

I stayed here with my family 35 years ago and the only thing that has changed is the decor. The hotel is typical european; no lift and compact in areas. Our room had 12' ceilings, 2 twin beds and a king, a fireplace, small TV, small closet and small bathroom. Again, typical european (I've never understood why people complain about... More
