Formerly a hostel, the two-star London House Hotel is now a reasonably priced, if anonymous, budget option in swanky Bayswater. It’s a big place, too, offering 102 rooms, all of them with private bathrooms.

Pros: Very Clean. Friendly staff. Some garden views. Fabulous location.

Cons: Not a lot of character. Charges for “extras” (breakfast, Wi-Fi, credit card transactions...). Very small rooms.


The London House Hotel has the smooth, flattened look of a chain hotel, and rooms themselves are lacking in character. There’s lots of light wood in the form of bed frames and bedside tables, and walls are kept mostly bare, save for a hanging flat-screen television. Among the pleasing touches are the boxy bedside lamps and the obligatory tea kettle station.

”Standard” rooms are on the small side, and the more economical “small” rooms are, of course, even smaller. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning, a mini-fridge and safe. Some rooms look out onto the garden (ask ahead).

On balance, the rates here are affordable for London although not hostel-level. Accordingly, it’s the post-backpacker set—from the UK and elsewhere in Europe, mostly—who stay at the London House Hotel.

The “extras” could add up at the London House Hotel. There are coin-operated laundry facilities on property. Breakfast is available for an additional charge, and Wi-Fi (available throughout) costs £1 per hour or £5 for 24 hours. Also note that there is a 3 percent surcharge assessed all credit card transactions.
