Keep in mind that this is an LSE hall of residence (a dorm for US visitors). I was in town for an LSE function and it is walking distance. That was the primary reasons I selected this place. I got the en suite single room. Rooms are extremely small but very convenient and well designed. The hall is a couple... More

Couple: three nights in late September 2011. Fantastic location! You can't find anything that cost as little as this unless you are literally out of London. It is right across from Trafaglar square in the middle of London. The room was off decent size (we got the accessibility room so the bathroom was relatively huge. Not much service (but not... More

It must be remembered that these are student Halls, and definitely not an Hotel. The accomodation is strictly utilitarian, possibly even drab. But clean enough. The ensuite facility is extremely small (I think one traveller referred to "A Pod " ), but again, clean and functional. There is no bed side light, which is fair enough considering students should possibly... More

I stayed here for 7 nights and it was great. The location is perfect -- you just can't beat this! It's right at Trafalgar Sq in a street with other accommodation that's super expensive. It's across the road from Charing Cross (Tube and mainline train) and Embankment (Tube). The Thames is about 2min walk in one direction, and Trafalgar Sq... More

This is the student halls that are rented as hotel accommodation outside of term time, to be completely honest if you are able to book in advance Travelodge is much better value, but for late notice budget accommodation this is not bad.

This place is great; right down the street from trafalgar square, we were on the 8th floor, but it wasn't too hot. Bathrooms weren't THAT small. 5 minute walk to the closest tube station. They don't have free wifi in the rooms, but they do have a lounge that you can go do. It seemed like if there were more... More

This student residence hall is in an historic building complete with a good lift, self-service washers and dryers, a nice lounge with tv and free-wi-fi. The little bathrooms in the rooms are new and fresh and have good shower pressure and excellent hot water. The furniture is newish and in good condition and the rooms spacious enough. This place may... More

I liked staying at Northumberland House. This is student accommodations make no mistake about it, but it is clean and of a decent size. I was in a single and there was more than enough space for me and my stuff. Only major downside was the bathroom. It is tiny! It is essentially a pod that has a sink, toilet... More

I was happy with my room at Northumberland House. I was not expecting luxury because it is a budget accommodation. The only thing that bothered me was that the WiFi stopped working for two days. I was relying on it to keep in contact with family, so it bothered me that they took so long to fix it. With the... More
