The rooms are very small so small that it is really hard to have large suitcases and actually have room to walk around them. The hotel does not have air-conditioning and although we had a ceiling fan and asked for an oscillating fan the room temperature at night made it hard to sleep. In addition, the hotel sits on a...

Excellent Hotel in London: clean, simple, very comfortable. The breakfast is amazing, the staff is very gently, everything in the hotel is simple but excellent. The only drawback, a little one, is that our room did not have a little fridge. 100% recommendable!!!

When I say small, I mean minuscule. Our rooms was anyway. We had a twin room at the front of the building. However, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, allowing us to sit in the lounge with free tea and coffee later in the day after we'd checked out. The interior is beautifully decorated with modern features and nice... More

Our stay at Arosfa made for a perfect visit to London. Allison and Ralph helped this hotel seem like home away from home when we visited May 25th through the 28th, 2014. My husband, our daughters and my brother made this a party of 5. And all of us found the hotel comfortable, clean, ideally located and the brunch was... More

The Arosfa is certainly worth considering if you are looking for budget (at least by London terms) accommodations in a pleasant neighborhood close to the British Museum, the theatre district, and transport links to Heathrow, National Rail, and Eurostar. Rooms are tiny (and bathrooms tinier: portapotty comes to mind) and can be hot in summer. Lots of stairs. But it... More

We chose this hotel as our first stay and then moved to the next one which is closed to Paddington. now we feel that this was a wrong decision. We shouldn keep on staying this hotel. The people of here are so friendly. We arrived in London very late into the night. They acknoledge me the closing time of the... More

As a group of friends we chose this hotel for location near to Euston station and to visit the theatre. The decor is lovely with a large lounge if you want to relax with water and hot drinks if you want them. We had a large family room and a twin room. Although the twin was small it was fine... More

Allison and Ralph were so nice! They were very helpful and accommodating. They took such good care of my children. The room was cozy and homely. Not very big but clean and tidy nonetheless. Thank you for making our first stay in London great!

This was a fantastic B&B to stay at in London. The staff is incredibly warm and friendly, and the rooms were wonderfully clean. I originally booked the last room available for the night we wanted to stay there, and then as our itinerary changed, we decided to book a second night. The only room available for that night was a... More
