We had a fine stay here in June. I think the breakfast was above average--lot of hot and cold selections. The room was very quiet. The bathroom was so tiny that I banged both elbows trying to turn around, but I thought it was a treat just to have a private bathroom in our room, so I have nothing to... More

Lovely little hotel, nice and friendly staff and a very good english breakfast. We stayed five nights i march -15 and are very pleased. Close to chinatown and lots of fun but quiet and nice. Our room was a little small but comfortably.

May 2015. Three nights at the hotel at room 15. Terrible itching as a result. On the last day I discover the culprits in the mattress - bedbugs. Staff is kind but wouldn't acknowledge the problem. Other visitors have already pointed out the problem. Avoid the hotel.

Arrived at the Arran House Hotel after a 2 hour 30 minute train journey. Not overly long, granted, but glad to have arrived in London, safely, on my own. However, I could not have been more disappointed. The man on 'reception' (back kitchen area) was the most unfriendly, uncommunicative and unwelcoming person I have ever met. One of the first...

I stayed there for 5 nights with my family last summer. We liked it very much, it is a 5 min walk form the Goodge street tube station, and a few minutes more from Euston square. The room was clean and tidy. The breakfast was a full English breakfast, with a good choice of other food, such as fruit, cereal,... More

We had booked a triple room and upon arrival lat on Wednesday evening were surprised that the Triple en-suite room (Nr 18) on the first floor was little more than a neglected shoe box facing the busy main...

Stayed for 2 nights in February, we arrived early into London and headed straight to the hotel, the rooms were not ready but they gave us a room to store the bags, offered us a hot drink and use of the bathroom before giving us a map of London. The staff were extremely helpful throughout our stay and nothing was... More

After having come to the Arran House for many years, I was sadly disappointed about the state of the place on my most recent visit (May 2013) ... after the place was sold by the previous owners. While the location obviously remains central and handy, the rooms and the service have suffered from the hotel's new ownership. One of the... More
