We stayed in a standard room which shares a bathroom with one or two others. This wasn't a problem, however, and all facilities were very clean. Bathrobes are provided for the short journey between room and bathroom. The room was small but comfortable and although it was quite hot when we arrived, it quickly cooled off when we opened the...

Location is amazing. Check in was easy. Room was large, spacious, comfortable. Bed was big with high quality linens. The room even included a sitting area with 2 cushy chairs and a table for tea. Only downside, no elevator. The stairs are narrow and many.

This conveniently located hotel is great to stay in if you are on business in the local area or wish to be based near boroughs many pubs, markets and shops. It is literally right next to the tube but you can't hear any noise from it. Staff are very friendly and rooms clean and comfortable. Unfortunately, whilst there it was... More

Excellent location, tube station next door, friendly helpful staff. Clean, tidy. The attached Cafe Riva is ideal for a good simple breakfast. Prices are reasonable for central London. Entrance stairs is steep and narrow, this an observation not a critism.

Many London budget hotels have small single rooms, and LCH is no exception. It does, however, manage to accommodate every possible amenity required , and is tastefully decorated, modern, and cosy. The reception staff are exceptionally helpful, friendly, and attentive to any requirements. The café staff also give a highly professional service to customers. This is the best London hotel...

Stayed one night here recently in Room 12, which we got for a very good price from booking.com. The hotel is well located in a pleasant part of London, within easy walking distance of attractions such as Vinopolis, the Borough Market, The Shard and a little further along, the London Eye, Tate Modern, etc. If you don't want to walk...

The Hotel was as described and was clean and comfortable, on arrival I couldn't find a hairdryer and noticed I had forgotten my razor. The hairdryer was quickly replaced and I was helped to find a local shop where I was able to find a razor. The staff were always cheerful and helpful and very welcoming

I loved the place, comfort, service, closeness to the Tube (the underground is right behind the corner). There was not airconditioning, so I had to open the window to get air, but with the window open it was a bit noisy. Its ok when the weather is below 20-25C. They have a huge fan there incase it's hot which is... More
