How Small is Small? Feb 20, 2017
The London House Hotel has 102 bedrooms in a small building. It advertises that it is ‘newly refurbished’. This often in London literally means that they have taken some large bedrooms and turned them into 2 bedrooms – with paper thin walls. How small was my single room? I could not move my suitcase into the room except just behind and blocking my door. Thankfully there wasn’t a fire. The room is literally just slightly wider than the bed. In fact the TV is on a bracket over the bed –watch you head! The bathroom was a contortionist’s dream come true. I mean tiny. I am slender and I barely got into the shower.

If you are a wide/big person – you have no chance of fitting in the small singes or shower. It’s a fact.

The LHH is ok I guess. I have stayed here twice. Thankfully I had quiet neighbours. You will hear them and what they are doing. The bed was good, can’t complain. My little fridge kept my drinks cold and the toiletries were good in the bathroom. I really did struggle to manoeuvre inside the room. And the ironing board I borrowed really didn’t fit in the room. It was that small.

On the plus side, it’s all modern. The hotel staff are indifferent unless you are very pleasant with them and they do warm up to you.

The neighbourhood is quiet with virtually no cars. You are a reasonable walk to tube/rail/pubs/restaurants. In terms of business, it’s not bad.

DAO's Verdict:

- Rooms are tiny, but modern with good beds

- Rooms are climate controlled, have coffee/tea and quiet

- Free Wi-Fi

- Well located for transport and dinning

- Mini-fridge, hair dryer, good toiletries

- Staff are helpful with Tourist information

It's ok for London, I guess. Not for someone claustrophobic, that's for sure!

Hotel Jun 10, 2011
Thought Hotels in London are fantastic. Normally go every year to see music gigs and shows! Would def Recommend to stay. Love seeing the sights of London! A newly decorated and clean Hotel. Continental breakfast good value. Room was very cramped and poor value for the money. Positive: Location was good, hotel was clean, reception staff nice and helpful but Breakfast expensive, good maybe do better

great locaton, nice hostel Oct 24, 2011
Stayed here a few times. The staff is helpful. The location is great, easy to get to from paddington station and close to two tube stops and blocks away from kensington gardens. I have stayed in private rooms, they are very nice and the hottel was just remodeled a few years ago.

Fot those just a little above backpacking. Sep 24, 2008
The location is just a short walk from subway stations. The area is filled with restaurants, fast food, mini markets, internet, etc. etc. 10 minute walk to kensington gardens. Rooms are small but very clean. The room I had was completely renovated (everything new) and the we completing renovations in all rooms. Breakfast not relly good but acceptable. Considering London prices (2nd most expensive city in the world) this one was very good for the money.
