Historical Traveller Reviews of The House Hotel
Even for a hostel, this was pretty badfrom EscapesfromTexas
The beds were clean and housekeeping did a nice job of making them each day.
The room was musty and the floors felt "soft." Seriously. When you walked, the floor seemed to give and be a bit squishy. In part, this was probably due to the sticky, unclean carpet. I don't know the origin of the stickiness, nor do I want to.
The bathroom did not have a working light, so for four days we showered by the light of the flashlight my ever-prepared Scoutmaster husband had packed. Each day, we notified the front desk attendant of the problem, and each day we were cheerfully assured that it would be fixed. At least they were pleasant when they disregarded us.
Very dodgy clientele, even by hostel standards.
The advertised internet was slow, but workable.
Would never go back under any circumstances.
This place is disgustingfrom A TripAdvisor Member
clean and nice but...from Briski

Not that badfrom A TripAdvisor Member
I've stayed in two different hotels in London before and they were much nicer but also 2-3 times more expensive. So the next time I'll go to London I will consider London House Hotel. At least if I go with friends not if I go with my parents or girlfriend.
If you're looking for a cheap hotel at a good location I can recommend this hotel. You get pretty good value for you're money in my opinion.
It was better in the olden days....from cecla414
This was in November. We had booked a twin room with shower but without bathroom. It was really cold and the radiator wasn't working. I had to sleep with my coat on for three nights - even though we notified the reception already on day one that it was freezing. I left a glass of water on the set of drwers next to the window over night - in the morning the water was frozen.
After three nights they finally fixed the radiator but since the radiator was squashed in right behind the bed we feared that the bed linen was going to catch fire.
When we complained about having to sleep with our clothes, mittens and scarves on the manager was very rude and denied any knowldge about it.
The shower in the room was impossible to use, when trying to use it it flooded over the wall-to-wal carpet and it took days for the carpet to dry.
Still.. I suppose it could be okay for a hostel - but it is not a Hotel.
Terrible Placefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Not as shocking as expectedfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Worst Weekendfrom A TripAdvisor Member
If you don't mind an extremely rough stay this would be the place for you, but I have never been so disappointed. This place should not even be classed as a hotel, it is a hostel.
Nothing is less truefrom A TripAdvisor Member
But when arrived in the nice and clean hostel everything was different; the beds were clean, we had a private shower and toilet with four of us, towels and soap were provided. The breakfast was not extremely great, but it was good; what would you expect for the money?
The matrassess were a bit old, but good enough to sleep on after a few pints.
5 out of 5 starts; there's no place where you get this service for such less money.
Top Local Tips for London
THE LONDON PASS The London Pass includes unlimited travel (bus, underground, train, boat -- within zones 1-5) and free entry to NUMEROUS attractions and discounts and freebies here and there, for the duration of the pass (available for 3 to 7 days). But most of all, it gave us ideas for WHAT to do and where to go! It had a map and an underground map and on each page, of the booklet included, it tells you what tube station is closest to that attraction/museum! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! Check out their website www.LondonPass.com
Day Pass on Tube Get a day ticket for the underground (5.50 pound). Really worth it and you can just hop on and off as you please. The underground is a brilliant system. Very crowded and you have to move fast. Tip - step away from foot traffic if you're working out where to go. Don't worry if you miss a train - they come every few minutes.
oyster card buy an oyster card when you arrive its the easiest and cheapest way to get around using the tube, buses and the light rail. you can add value as you go along.
