“a perfect B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

walking distance from Kings Cross station it's a nice bed and breakfast style small hotel. My room was modern and quiet, the breakfast was buffet style with quality ingredients. One of the best hotels in this category.

Room Tip: rooms facing the backyard are more quiet.

Having stayed in dozens of B&Bs in London in the past forty years, I was skeptical about the reviews of the Arosfa Hotel. I was wrong. Nick and his staff provide excellent service. He even helped take my luggage out to my taxi. The hotel is clean, fresh, and remodeled tastefully (especially if you like photos of Audrey Hepburn). The rooms are as small as others on Gower Street, but are much better appointed - all the 'mod cons'. The breakfast is generous and well prepared. In short, the Arosfa is the best B&B in London. i just hope it will not be booked up the next time I visit London.

Really pleased to have stumbled across this on booking.com and for a night for less than £100, it's a bargain. Room was tiny with a single bed, but everything I needed and the bathroom was spacious in comparison. Breakfast very good, with loads of fresh fruits and yoghurts/pastries etc along with a small cooked breakfast. I'd definitely return!

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the quiet, elegance, attention to detail, delicious breakfasts with the high quality buffet at Arosfa 10 & 11 June. It was especially nice to have the family room for the four of us. Nic graciously carried our luggage to our room. He is generally interested in his guests' welfare. We definitely would opt to stay again after this enjoyable visit! For peace of mind, the communication before we checked in was a great help.

Room Tip: Being so near the Goodge Street Underground station is an asset. Our large, first floor (European re...

A very nice hotel with a personal touch. Much better than all the chain hotels out there. Felt like it was run with love. Everything was very clean and well taken care off. Breakfast was also included with a lot of options. Will definitely stay here again.

Such a lovely B&B, GREAT location close to shops, restaurants and a tube station. The staff was wonderful upon check in I was greeted and my bags taken to my adorable little room. It was so clean with plenty of space for one person. Nice, clean bathroom with all amentities, spacious shower and comfortable bed. I had a view of the garden which was just gorgeous. As a single traveler it was all I needed but it was very enjoyable. The wi-fi worked great in my room and my included breakfast was delicious. The Arosfa really is a great place to stay with a warm and welcoming staff and atmosphere. When I visit London again this is without a doubt where I will be staying I really can't wait to go back. I absolutely would reccomend this B&B to single travelers, couples and families alike, you will not be dissapointed. You're in the heart of London, such a fun and interesting neighbourhood and I felt quite safe walking to and from my hotel at night. Looking forward to my next stay :) Cheers.

Room Tip: I stayed in a single room, it was more than enough for me with a beautiful view of the garden!

Stayed one night on business trip so had little time to use amenities of hotel but lounge looked comfortable and well furnished and had coffee machine and 2 PCs for use of guests (plus fi). Very friendly staff and fine cooked breakfast and well stocked and unusual cold buffet available.Single room adequate, comfortable bed and tea making facilities. Only down side is that en suite really cramped (basically a pod) and a step up which is not always easy. However I was told that rooms gradually being refurbished and when staying again check direct to find out the score.
Location very good with lots of nearby bus routes and underground stations. Excellent value for money given central London.
