The two-star London House Hotel got a boutique makeover a few years ago that modernized its rooms and update its style. Happily, room rates weren’t “renovated,” as well.
Pros: Boutique style. Friendly staff. Some garden views. Fabulous location.
Cons: Very small rooms. Rates fluctuate.
The London House Hotel is a rather slick operation, offering 103 renovated rooms with private bathrooms and an enviable location facing Kensington Gardens Square. The hotel, comprised of four old Victorian houses combined into one, would make a comfortable home to travelers looking for something with a touch of style near Paddington Station.
The hotels’ 2012 upgrade still looks good. Rooms have a pleasing (if now ubiquitous) “contemporary” decor, with brown-and-gold bedspreads and beige carpets. All are equipped with air conditioning, TV, telephone, and free Wi-Fi. Rooms facing the square are the most sought-after, and first floor rooms have the highest ceilings and seem the most spacious (our faves).
Newly renovated baths have fresh tiling, new showers (no bathtubs) and toiletries.
Breakfast is available for £7 Also note that there is a 1.5% surcharge assessed all credit card transactions.
