The Clarendon is one of a number of hotels along Bedford Place that are part of the "Grange" group. If you're looking for a smaller hotel with a bit of character and away from the worst of the London noise, this could be a good choice. Let me get the negative out of the way first.

I stayed for 1 night in a basement room, the room was spoilt by the awful smell from the bathroom. Given the problems in getting another room in an alternative hotel I stayed put. The bedding and bathroom were very clean but the fabric of the room was poor. Breakfast was OK, basic but plentiful and all of the staff... More

We stayed at the hotel one night on returning from Paris before heading home. Sadly we only had one night as the hotel was lovely, great location and a traditionally English setting. The rooms was set of by the lovely view of the park at the rear of the hotel. Our room was HUGE and after our other hotel in... More

Very friendly but professional check in. I had a very spacious room, lovely decorated but a bit dim as it was on the ground floor. Although my stay was generally quite pleasant, I have one minor complaint. On the last day, I asked for a take away breakfast (I had to catch an early morning flight) and - due to... More

Stayed here many times, good smallish hotel in an excellent location for central London and the west end. The quietest rooms are at the rear away from the street, some rooms are very large with sofas. All rooms are at a reasonable standard. The choice at breakfast time will suit most tastes. Small and friendly!

Centrally located hotel that I have stayed in several times when delivering training in Holborn. Always a warm welcome & they use an IPAD to register your arrival. Rooms are a good size for London & most have a comfortable large bed. The only thing to watch is getting in & out of the shower as it over a deep... More

The hotel is conveniently located in Soho. Blocks away from the British Museum and lovely sights. The staff is kind. The hotel room is comfortable when compared to other hotels in London BUT: four star hotel staff should know the room service menue including soup of the day. 10 pound per high speed Internet access that's far from high.

Check in and check out quick, by very polite staff. I had bedroom at the back of hotel, it was so quiet I could not believe I was in central London, even with the window open. The curtains were so thick, preventing any light coming through. Bathroom very functional and clean. Not the biggest room, but not the smallest I... More
