The apartments have now been renovated and updated providing high quality 2 bed apartments in a great West End location. Goodge Street tube station and Tottenham Court Road are on the door step and Oxford Street a short walk. I would definitely stay again.

We had a short stay booking for Scala House for July 2007. We received an extremely helpful letter from Chris advising us that the new owners were not taking any short term stays from end May and therefore he offered to help us find alternative accommodation. Finding a similar flat (location, price, facilities etc) as such short notice for an... More

I'm of two minds as I write this review. Our stay wasn't perfect but Scala House was sold by the long-time owners several months ago and will be closing to short-term stays as of this coming May. Therefore, I have to think that perhaps our stay isn't completely representative of how the property would have been, say, a year or... More

Having read all the previous reviews, we bravely made reservations about 8 months ago for our visit to the Scala House. We stayed from 2/24 thru 3/10/07. There were 3 adults. The flat was as expected: old and rundown but a good home base for all of our adventures. The kitchen was the best of the lot with a fine... More

This was our second stay at Scala House. We therefore knew what to expect. The apartments are quite run down. They (desperately) need refurbishing, especially the bathroom. The furniture should have been changed some time ago. At the time we stayed there, London was quite cold, and we found the apartment difficult to heat. Further not much hot water to... More

It seems most of the reviews of Scala House are "love it" or "hate it." For us it was certainly somewhere in between. We thought the location was very convenient--about a 15 minute walk to Lecester square or a one minute walk to the Goodge Street tube station. It took us a couple days to discover the wonders of Charlotte... More

I took my 16 year old daughter and a friend to London for the Thanksgiving holiday, and our two bedroom apt. at Scala House was ideal. London is outrageously expensive for US visitors now because of the 2/1 exchange rate for dollars/pounds. But Scala House made it possible for us to have a lovely time as we cooked breakfast and...

This is the fourth time we have stayed at Scala House. Location is great-just around the corner from Goodge Street Underground and an easy walk to Regents Park the British Museum and the West End A leisurely stroll to Covent Garden. Staff is very helpful, flat is extremely clean and new appliances. Furniture is a little tacky and the pub... More

We just returned from London, where we stayed in the penthouse flat at the Scala House. The staff was very helpful and went out of their way many times for us. The flat was large, well-furnished, and clean. The location is good, near to a tube station, grocery stores and restaurants, and somewhat removed from the hectic locales. I would... More
