“Surprisingly Lovley........”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

Didn't realize it was in the 'student area of London - really posh area, hotel was lovely - clean & tidy - rooms were very comfortable....for £90 each for 2 nights which included breakfast - for London - we couldn't complain!

and a stone's throw from Covert Garden so we saved loads on tubes......literately able to walk right into town

Will happily book there again - quite happily.....

Room Tip: if there's two of you sharing - double is only £68 which make's it better value for money...

Price seemed reasonable, perfect location, and nice pictures. Stayed for 8 nights and could not sleep at all. Being a student hall, I expected silent rooms to be able to study and rest, but I got coughing noises from the neighbor, the entrance doorbell, foot traffic by reception inside a room with a bed, desk and washbin.
What they did not mention in the website at all is that windows don't shut properly, all the noise from the street comes in, as well as a nearby A/C unit which made it impossible to sleep.
Staff at reception are not qualified to deal with customers or any issue outside standard check-in/check-out procedure.
There is no elevator, so be sure to pack lightly or have someone carry your suitcases up the stairs..

Room Tip: Avoid rooms facing the street

LSEVacations, Manager at LSE Passfield Hall, responded to this review, May 10, 2013
Thank you for your comments. It was unfortunate that we were unable to accommodate your request for a “silent room if possible.” Our occupancy at the time limited us to the number of options we could present to you.

The sash windows in our listed building are maintained throughout the year, and our maintenance team was available to assist had we been advised of a problem. As advertised on our website it is the case that access to some parts of Passfield are by stair only, however the main building is fully serviced by lifts. Our reception team operate daily throughout the year, looking after people from all corners of the globe, and the feedback we receive from our guests is good to excellent. We appreciate that your stay with us was not wholly satisfactory, and although the entire team mobilised to assist, we acknowledged that we could not provide you with the room you required, and apologised.

We wish to thank you for your comments. The entire team at Passfield take all customer feedback seriously, reviewing both our operation and training requirements accordingly.

We stayed overnight as we wanted to be close to London attractions. It's 45 years since I was in a Hall of Residence (University of Exeter) and I have to say my accommodation then was of a higher standard than Passfield Hall. I think the Travelodge would be a safer and more comfortable overnight stay than Passfield Hall, but at least they provide breakfast and a coffee or tea (if they have any mugs available and we had to share one!). Sorry, Passfield Hall, but you're OK for backpackers and students, but those of us wanting some creature comforts would want a little more.

Room Tip: Try to be in the main block.

Stayed for one night, great location only 5 minutes walk to Euston Station with all transport links. Very quiet location. Rooms are very basic but what do you expect for £60 for two people in central London including breakfast!! Room and shower room were very clean and well kept. Would recommend for a cheap stay and i will be using this place again myself in the future.

Good for what you pay for considering its location, but be prepared for a different type of stay than your average B&B or hotel. For some reason I had in my head that the typical resident would be mature students and old professors, but it was obvious when I checked in that the oppsite was the case - I was back in student land! I stayed in student residencies in the 70's and this place had a certain amount of nostalgia. The room was basic with a single bed and a wash-hand basin and was amazingly quiet considering the age of my neighbours who must have been very well behaved. The showers and toilets were communal at the end of the corridor but were exceptionally clean. Towels and basic toiletries were provided.
The piece de resistance was the breakfast. Refectory style, but superb quality which surpassed many many fry-ups I've had at more salubrious establishments. All in all good value for money and i would go again if in the area.

Room Tip: Bring your own TV if you are a TV addict! (They don't provide one in the room - but there is a...

Basic twin accomodation - clean and staff were friendly. Bath/shower elderly but the bath worked if shower was dodgy. Kettle for tea making was either outside and down to the basement or up 4 floors! But at £60 for 2 you can't have everything. Handy for buses too.

Room Tip: Check where the kettle is if you want to make your own drinks

We just needed a place to stay for one night in London, and we wanted something near the Kings Cross Station as we needed to take train the next morning.

The fact that the bathrooms and toilets are communal did make me hesitate to stay here at first, but as it was just for one night, the price was inclusive of cooked breakfasts and the triple room was available, I decided to go for Passfield Hall.

The rooms are clean, and very spacious for London standards, and the location is very central and boasts great transport links as it is within 10 to 15-minute walk from Euston, Kings Cross, Goodge Street and Warren Street stations, the British Library, and the British Museum. Showers and toilets are functional but nothing fancy as it is used as student hall of residence. There was plenty to choose from in breakfast options - you are allowed to choose seven items in addition to coffee/juice, such as bacon, eggs, tomatoes, baked beans, yoghurt, toasts, cereal, etc etc, and when all was added, it provided filling start to the day.

There are too many shabby, run-down, and extremely cramped hotel rooms in London, and I think Passfield Hall is a sensible choice for people who want clean and efficient rooms in central location in London but do not mind the issue of shared bathroom too much.
