I was put up there for a business meeting just of Gray's Inn Road on the hottest September day for 100 years (allegedly). The room lacked air-conditioning, but did have a portable fan! This was sufficient to keep me cool at night. The room was small, but well appointed and it was quiet. There is no lift in the hotel,... More

This was a great choice if you like quiet and convenient. I stumbled on this accommodation through ' Journeywomen' website, and it sounded good for a single woman. The neighborhood is quiet for London, close to the Tube and the rooms very adequate. Breakfast in the big college hall across the street was fun. Very Harry Potter, and an interesting... More

Stayed at this hotel for one night while attending a conference. Stayed in a single room which was comfortable but very basic. Staff friendly at check in and out. Breakfast was the worst part. I had to leave the actual building I was staying in and get breakfast across the road in another building. There was a good selection but... More

Great location and environment. The staff was friendly and the neighborhood was peaceful. The dining hall was very classic. It's really rare to find traditional college in central London. Highly recommended to people who like peaceful atmosphere.

I stayed in William Goodenough house which is student accommodation- however it does have the hotel feel! I had a single room with ensuite and stayed for 2 nights. The room was immaculate, single bed, wet room and fridge. Very comfy and quiet and perfect as a base for sightseeing as Russell square tube is 10 minutes walk at most.... More

Goodenough Club looks lovely to me and is not student accommodation. William Goodenough House and London House on the same Mecklenburgh Square as the club, are the student accommodation and in my opinion are amongst the very best student accommodation in London. I stayed in William Goodenough House for 1 night. I had a great room overlooking the square. It... More

I stayed in William Goodenough House, a highly superior student residence as the price indicates. My room was small but very well arranged, with the advantage of having a fridge and being quite near a communal kitchen. The location is leafy Bloomsbury is terrific - walking distance of so much and near the tube and numerous bus routes.
