Staff were pleasant but didn't seem to be aware of the booking which was not very reassuring. The room was on the fifth floor (although one of our party was older and they had been advised of this). We were left to find the room ourselves. Shabby, stained and torn carpets, dirty walls, no sink in room etc all made... More

I stayed here for four weeks whilst interning down in London and struggled to find fault. International House was, in my opinion, well worth the price-although basic, my room was spacious and clean with plenty of storage space for clothing, books and toiletries. The accommodation is less than a ten minute walk from Waterloo station and there are a selection... More

I stayed in London on a Thursday night as was seeing friends. London accommodation is, in general, quite costly so I thought I would think outside the box a little and try something different. I looked at hostels, and private rooms in hostels but then thought about looking at university accommodation. This was when I stumbled across International House. The... More

This is a very basic room. Great if you are looking for somewhere cheap in London if going out sight seeing all day. It's not a hotel remember it's student accom! Staff were OK would stay here again. Bed sheets and duvet were provided. Sink in room very handy if someone is using bathroom

International house is a bargain for people wanting to save on accommodation in London. It's not flash granted but although a bit old and worn my room was very comfy. My room had a single bed a desk and chair, a chest of drawers and a wardrobe that had a sink as well. My room was on the second floor(208)... More

This place should not have the high reviews. Granted this is cheap, if i had stayed in a hostel I would have felt more comfortable. Rooms are single rooms but the bathrooms are shared and it is not cleaned regularly. So filthy everyday. There was no hot water one morning when i wanted to have a shower. Told reception desk...

Good affordable accommodation in an awesome part of london. This is walking distance from the eye and right across the river from westminster. The rooms are old and very basic with just a bunk, sink and cupboards. 4 rooms per wing with a dunny and shower this is definately no hotel! There are students living here and that needs to... More

This student dorm/hotel puts you literally a block away from the Imperial War Museum in London. We were easily within walking distance from the London Eye. Front desk service was excellent. We couldn't access the free wifi, but they may have it shutoff for summer. The showers/toilet were shared among four rooms but I think we were the only guests... More

I stayed in International House with my daughter while was visiting London while I attended a conference in Westminster. As per many other reviewer have said, the building and the rooms are very centrally located and with that benefit, the price is excellent for London. I managed to walk to my conference venue within 20 minutes. My daughter and I... More

I couldn't have expected better for the price. I found it clean and pleasant, and the staff at the front desk were helpful when I asked about anything. The location was excellent, a few minutes from the Thames and Westminster itself. The shower/toilets were shared between two or three rooms, as was the kitchen, but they were kept clean and... More
