“The Penn Club: 'Friendly' and delightful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2007

We stayed at the Penn Club in August 2007 for two days en route both to and from France and could not say enough good things about it. The rates were extremely reasonable for London, the staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were simple, quaint, and charming. This is a Quaker-owned hotel and we had some wonderful conversations with Friends staying there as guests. We also loved the breakfasts. Additionally, the hotel is in a very convenient location a few blocks from the metro, very near the British Museum. We would recommend this hotel to travellers wholeheartedly. It is a delightful place to stay.

  • Liked — The hotel and the location
  • Disliked — Cost of accomodations in London is very high
  • Stayed August 2007, traveled with family
