I probably shouldn't review Northumberland House for fear of it becoming too popular, but it represents such good value for money in a vastly overpriced city that it's too good not to praise. First off this is student accommodation, so it is naturally of a basic standard. Rooms are spacious and comfortable with (small) en-suite facilities. On each floor there... More

The average price of a hotel room in Central London is getting pretty close to a National scandal. Even the chain operators charge amounts that are eye watering, considerably more than you would pay for an identical room in a provincial town or city. The LSE provides a great option for those on a budget or just the more savvy... More

Excellent for the price. Student accommodation, so not the Ritz but perfectly OK. Big communal kitchen is very useful with lots of fridge space, free tea and coffee, microwaves etc. The location is wonderful. Fifty metres from Trafalgar Square. Short walks to Leicester Square, Horseguards Parade and othe sights. If you want a clean room in a great location and... More

What an amazing place to stay, right in the center of major London attractions! The rooms are not luxurious, but the beds are comfortable and everything was clean. The bathrooms are small, but my 6 ' 6" husband managed just fine. Noise was also not a problem. Although breakfast is not included, the Tesco on the corner has fruit, muffins,... More

Excellent location, only 5 minutes walk from Charing Cross Station. Easy access to major scenic spots by walking, bus and tube. Efficient management and helpful staff. Lift and free room wifi are plus. More like a hostel than a hotel with very basic facility, but clean, nice shower and public kitchen good for long stay. Most importantly, good value for... More

Cannot believe the location/value and service. Sure bathrooms are small, but what could you possibly expect for the price - given the location. It is not a hotel, but the 24 hour desk service is wonderful, they could not have been more helpful. Water pressure/ temp in shower superb. Will recommend to friends and would not want to stay anywhere... More
