OK, so it's student accommodation but I have stayed in less accommodating double rooms in conventional hotels. There's plenty of wardrobe and drawer space, a large desk and comfortable office chair plus an armchair, all essential for our six night stay. There's a comfortable double bed and a clean, but bathless, en-suite which has a perfectly adequate shower cubicle. Add... More

I spent one night at imperial college. With 48 pounds it was the best value for money I have ever had. Clean, quiet room with shower and excellent internet. You have to walk toa different building for breakfast, but that is normal for a university dorm. Staff is very friendly and everything is well organized. I wish I could have... More

I've stayed twice at Imperial College. Once in the single room with bathroom and the second in the individual room with shared bathroom. The first experience was better than the second: - Theres 2 Wilkinson Halls, and the woman at the reception kept sending me to the wrong building, so I couldn't find my room. It took me an hour...

Stayed here for a weekend break in London, chose it because of the price and the location. Was extremely impressed, the staff were very helpful, with a cheerful welcome. The room is small as you'd expect for student accommodation, but lots of storage space and very clean. Nice bathroom with a good shower, even tea and coffee kit and a... More

Great room which was very clean, we stayed in a basement room but still was very bright and airy. Only negatives was the bed was rather hard, shower not that powerful and no television. However I would stay there again as it has a brilliant location, great breakfast and clean with toiletries and coffee and tea making facilities. I would... More

My other half booked a night here for our trip to London, at first I was put off and said 'you booked student accommodation!' but it turned out much better than I thought. The location was excellent, round the corner from the science museum, natural history and v&a museum. South Kensington is the nearest tube stop which was great. Room... More

I have stayed at 2 of the colleges Southside Halls and Beit Hall, the 2 are only a mateer og half a mile apart and are in a prime location for tourists as the Royal Albery Hall, The Natural History Museum, The Science Museum, The V&A and Hyde Park are literally on the door step. I usually pay in the... More

I was attending the Late Prom last night which was not scheduled to finish until nearly midnight. The thought of getting home at 1 am before getting up at 6.30 to return to central London did not fill me with joy so I booked a room in Prince's Gardens for myself and DH. We had a double en suite (bit... More

The location and price are great, the public areas are clean and well-decorated, and the check-in staff were brilliant. The rooms are spartan but have everything you need including a fan for when it's hot, and the front rooms look out over a nice park. There's even a laundry room with iron etc. for business travel, a gym, and the... More

Good value accommodation in a great location just across the road from the main museums, Royal Albert Hall and Hyde Park. Customer service from the staff was quite poor, slow and they didn't give us much information or explain where our rooms were. Booked 3 rooms and were paced in 3 different buildings which was a bit annoying. Rooms were... More
