I was recommended the St Athans by my mother who has recommended it to many of her friends. When I was traveling to London on my own this summer I was looking forward to having a "mom certified" home-base that was gentle on my travel budget. I booked a double room and for the small additional fee, I think it... More

A convenient place to stay; clean comfortable rooms; no frills; staff friendly and helpful; walking distance to many of London's attractions. Stayed here while attending a graduation ceremony at SOAS. There is a very nice coffee-shop in the basement that serves a good breakfast.

Lovely little b&b very comfy beds, rooms are clean and tidy. Staff are very pleasant and friendly. Would highly recommend. There is always someone to let you in at night at whatever time. Great location a stone throw away from euston station and a small walk to oxford street. Nice little coffee shop under the b&b. Can not fault it.... More

I stayed with a friend four nights in this hotel. It is cleaner than I initially expected. The showers/toilets are shared but this is not a big issue. The rooms are small but acceptable for the price.

Firstly, I will say I don't think this should be considered a hotel, as bathrooms and showers are shared. It is like a b&b, but no breakfast or it could also be like a backpackers without the shared rooms. Our room was fairly small but larger enough to fit a double bed, full size wardrobe, a set or draws with... More

We were able to get a room on the first floor since we had to carry our bag, which is a good thing not be over going over many stairs with luggage. Wifi was working pretty well, beds are comfortable, but the bathrooms are pretty small, and the shower too, it looks like a cruise size.Rooms were clean, with no... More

I stayed in room 25 ( single with toilet) for three days. I could not get any sleep at all. My room is next to the public shower/bathroom and I could clearly hear noises up till 4:00 in the morning. The wall is super thin and the other guests were loud. Also, the hotel is very hot with no air.... More

St Athans was perfect for me. I was looking for a home base to recover from jet lag and do some work nearby. The staff was extremely welcoming, organized, and professional. My en suite room was bright and quiet. Comfortable bed, great breeze through the windows. The connected downstairs café was much appreciated: terrific coffee and breakfast. The location is... More

The warm welcome we received, the quality of the service, the cleanliness of the rooms and bathrooms, the reasonable prices, all of which made this hotel a very nice place to stay. It's also very well located, and I would definitely recommend it.
