For years one of our favorite small hotels in London, the Arran House these days is quite a bit less charming. However, its location is still a winner.
Pros: Great Bloomsbury location. Rooms can be quite cheap.
Cons: No longer a charmer. Rooms on street can be noisy.
Housed in a Georgian townhouse with a black brick exterior, the Arran House Hotel was for nearly a decade one of our “go to” family-run B&Bs on Gower Street. Unfortunately, recent changes in ownership have resulted in a far less charming operation.
The hotel’s 30 simple rooms still offer both private or shared facilities. Each is equipped with a TV, coffee maker and plenty of storage space. Note: Light sleepers might want to request a room in the back off Gower Street.
During our most recent inspection, we didn’t experience any of the warmth of the original B&B. The flowers in the lobby are now made of plastic, and could use a dusting. It’s too bad.
A full English breakfast is included in the room rate, and Wi-Fi is free throughout.
