I was visiting my daughter in Clapham on Saturday 14 April 2014 – she and her partner only have a one bedroom flat, so I booked a room in the Clapham Guest House. I arrived by taxi after we had been out for dinner – it was really cold that night – we rang the bell and there was no... More

Our room and also the (shared) bathroom were really nice, clean and ample. The staff was absolutely helpful and the transport connections are super! It would have been a perfect stay, if there wasn't that soundscape. If you don't like to wake up at 7 am you must use earplugs... Unfortunately, the room doors are not silencing at all and... More

The guest house is in a super location. You have more or less 20min to the center of london. The rooms are very clean and also bathroom is really big. The disadventage is, that the rooms are a bit clairaudient. But this isn't a big problem.

Stayed here in a triple room for 3 nights. It is a nice enough guest house, about ten minutes walk from the underground station (Clapham Common). Apparently it is closer to a bus station but we only caught the trains. There are a few nice places to eat breakfast between the station and the Hotel. The room itself was quite... More

Dear Mi H, Many thanks for your nice and honest review.

Cleanliness is one of our main priorities, so I am very glad you noticed the housekeeping’s daily hard... More

The location is near 87 bus stop, so you can reach easily to any London's attraction. At arrival the room was not so clean (-), but they have changed towels every day (+). They have offered tea/coffee and cookies every day (++). Friendly staff. Because of the location (the room position was near the street), the noise was sometimes disturbing... More
