Room was not cleaned, found bugs. The breakfast was good enough, but serverd only until 9.30 AM. The hotel needs to be renovated and the location is a bit off. It still is not cheap, maybe to London prices, and we expected more.

Though the hotel room is slightly smaller, it is clean and well decorated. The front desk staffs were very helpful and cheery. The location was very good as it is a short walk away from King's Cross and Russell Square.The British Museum (one of my favourite museum) is 15 mins walk away from the hotel.

The Leigh House has become one of my go to hotels while staying in London. I first stayed when they had just renovated about 4 -5 years ago and at the time if felt like a small boutique hotel. I just stayed again for a couple of nights and it still is one of the better priced hotels to stay... More

Was looking for a cheap(ish) place to stop for one night after a business trip to Oslo. This was ideal. My flight back was heavily delayed but even though I arrived at 01:30 in the morning, they were open and very helpful. The added bonus was tea and coffee in the room. Bed was comfortable and the room was clean.

Stayed for two nights in room 8. Bed was really comfy and very clean and fresh. Room quite small but fine for one person, two would be snug. No plug socket next to kettle which was quite annoying and no plug sockets next to bed. Bathroom was cleanish, just a few cobwebs on ceiling. However shower drain was blocked meaning... More

Leigh house hotel is simple to find, good location, minutes away from Russell Square underground station. Rooms were a bit cramped, but suitable for our 2 night stay. The bed was so comfy, we both slept extremely well. Shower was tiny - i resulted in banging my elbow multiple times. At first, water takes ages to be hot enough to... More
