I stayed here at the beginning of July 2015 with my Mum when we were in London for Wimbledon. I choose this place because of the price and the accessibility to Wimbledon and to Euston Station. After reading some of the trip advisors we were slightly apprehensive. The room was clean and spacious and the shared bathroom was just down... More

My experience with Clapham Guest House unfortunately wasn't great. I've booked a room because it was close to the Clapham Junction station. After booking I got a mail that I had to pick-up the keys at another location, further away from the station. This was a bummer. Upon arriving at the location, there initially was no one present and the... More

Extremely noisy, but ear plugs were provided and at least there was double glazing.Noise from room upstairs was constant at night, then from around 4.00am in morning. Think they were doing exercises. No soundproofing between floors. Bathroom ceiling was black with mould.

Room clean and tidy. Beds comfortable but very light, could do with bedside lamps as the 6 ceiling lights were very bright. Ensuite was good but very mouldy. Extractor fan couldn't cope with steam from shower thus lots of condensation on mirror and walls. Lots of noise in guest house from guests above and noise from road / sirens etc.earplugs... More

The rooms were beautiful, clean and spacious. The staff was so helpful and nice. Honestly, everything about our stay was amazing except for the creaky floors. We were on the first floor and we had a very loud couple in the room above us. The floors were creaky so every time they walked around we heard it. Didn't help that... More

Clapham Guest House and Chelsea Guest House are the same reception. Following that possession of a key to get in for Clapham Guest House have to go 10min from no 372 (the Chelsea Guest House) to 685.

The room was large enough for a family of 4 persons. The bathroom (in the room!) was clean. The hotel is about 20-25 minutes from the city center, located in a quiet area. Recommended for those who love freedom and does not claim a 5 stars
