Stayed here while attending a business show in July - student rooms let out during the holidays. Good, clean, basic room with tea/coffee facility but no TV (didn't have time for TV anyway!). £45 for a single room and £69 for a twin so great value to be in such a central location.
Breakfast the following day was in an adjacent building and consisted of 5 hot items, orange juice, fruit salad, toast and pastries - better than I have had in some 4* hotels!
Book this for the value - you will not regret it.

Room Tip: Great for a cheap, clean bed for the night in London

I enjoyed my single night here. My room overlooked the beautiful Albert Hall it wasn't terribly noisy although I was on the opposite side to the students union which probably made a difference.
The room was clean, staff were friendly and breakfast was good, consisting of a cooked breakfast plus fruit or cereal, toast and croissant as well as juice and coffee.
A real bargain at £80 for a night in the middle of Kensington.

The Imperial College in London offers rooms during college holidays that are usually occupied by students during term. The rooms are basic without a television, a fridge or airconditioning (a small fan was provided in a week with tropical temperatures), but are large enough and are cleaned on a daily basis. It is a budget accomodation for a stay in London in an expensive city. The location is central close to Hyde Park, the Royal Albert Hall, the National History Museum, the Sciene Museum and the Victoria and Albert Musem. A breakfast in the senior student common room, a five minute walk over the campus and access to the swimming pool and gym on the other side of the road, were included in the room rate. For access to the internet you will pay an extra GBP5. This really would be an excellent accommodation, if some time was spend to the training of the staff. It is great that students at the college are given the opportunity to earn money during their holidays. And generally the students at reception were friendly and helpful, but some were barely out of diapers and their supervisor wasn't much older. And the result was that the staff isn't equipped to deal with problems that will arise in running an accommodation. The check-inn was an extremely slow process with long queues because they do not start the whole process until 2 pm and then everybody turns up at the same time. After half an hour in the queue, we did get a key, but although we had asked for a twin room with separate beds explicitly at the time of booking and the words "twin room" were clearly printed on the voucher we presented upon check-inn, we were given a key for a room that turned out to be a double. While we were in this room, other people turned up with a key for the same room. We went back to reception and there were at least another six of seven other people who were given the wrong rooms. Being given the wrong room can happen in any hotel or hostel, but a problem like that is usually solved within a couple of minutes. But at the Imperial College, it took the staff two hours to correct the mistake and give us the room we had booked. As a compensation for the mess, we did get GBP20 worth of vouchers to use in the restaurants on the campus, but during a city trip, no one wants to spend two hours waiting in a lobby with people who have no clue to what they are doing. The lack of training is also present in the level of housekeeping. Toiletpaper, soap, shampoo are not replaced when used and every day you have to make a trip to the reception to get the basic things you need for your stay in the room. So, although letting tourist sleep in an affordable student accommodation is an interesting idea, with some basic training for the student staff and their supervisors, the Imperial College can raise the standard a lot. To end with a positive aspect of our stay. Since the campus is aimed at accommodating students, the price of drinks in the Eastside bar on campus are very low.

If you intend to spend your time in London seeing the sights this is a great place to stay. It is basic accommodation, it is very clean, well run and the breakfast was good. It doesn't have a TV, but I didn't go to London to watch the TV I went to see the sights, a show and Barclay's Summer Time in Hyde Park. The bed was comfortable there was an en-suite and Tea & Coffee making facilities and plenty of room to store away your clothes and cases.

I have stayed in a number of hotels in London over the years and would say that this offers the best value for money.

I gave this 5 stars, because it is exactly what it says it is, not because it is 5 star accommodation.

I doesn't pretend to be anything but a budget, clean, well run room for the night with a decent breakfast. I stayed here because of events in the city pushing conventional hotel rooms up in price by ridiculous levels.

The rooms are effectively halls of residence rooms, no tv, air con, or frills, but clean, with a desk, wardrobe and en-suite.
