Housed in a Georgian townhouse with a black brick exterior, quaint door arch and, in warmer months, window boxes of flowers, the Arran House Hotel is a three-star cutie situated among the Gower Street guesthouse cluster. These days, it’s looking a little worse for the wear, but it’s a reliable, no-frills pick.
Pros: Clean and cute. Good value. Good location.
Cons: A tad worn. Street-facing rooms can pick up noise.
The Arran House Hotel offers 28 simple rooms, with or without private bathrooms. Fluffy duvets, cream-colored walls, rustic wooden bed frames and heavy blue drapes set the stage. The effect is homey, not fancy.
Each room has a TV, coffee maker and plenty of storage space. Note: Light sleepers might want to request a room in the back off Gower Street.
One room we saw, with shared facilities, had an in-room sink well equipped with shelving for toiletries. The shared bathroom we spied was roomy and spotless, with attractive gray floor tiles.
For added atmospheric kick, the hallways are hung with theatre posters. The lounge is another welcoming space with an Internet station, television, brochures, bookshelf and some comfy couches.
A full English breakfast is included in the room rate, and Wi-Fi is free throughout. There is also a coin-operated Internet station in the TV lounge.
