LSE Northumberland House London Review

LSE Northumberland House
We paid £84.80 for a double room for one night on 01/08/2018

Booking any form of accommodation, particularly an unknown one, is always a risk when staying away. This is when Trip Adviser is key, but even so, there’s always going to be a percentage of negative reviews compared to positive ones. Which ones are you going to trust?

We trusted the positive reviews and booked one night at LSE Northumberland House for a one night stay in Central London.

The requirements were fairly basic. It had to be very central, clean, secure and ideally, less than £100 for one night.

LSE Northumberland House sounded ideal for this purpose. It’s not actually a hotel or hostel, but is actually student accommodation for the London School of Economics and Political Science rented out to anyone during the university holidays.

Their rooms come in a variety of options – singles, doubles, twins complete with private en suite, towels, toiletries, study spaces and communal kitchen.

Northumberland House is seconds away from Trafalgar Square on Northumberland Avenue. The National Gallery, West End, all major central tourist attractions and Thames is just minutes away on foot.

Our particular need for this stay was to be close to Her Majesty’s Theatre on Haymarket, so that my youngest child didn’t have far to walk after a very long busy day and late night.

LSE Northumberland House, was a great find. If you are a busy family out during the day and like basic, clean and functioning rooms for family, it’s ideal. If you are looking for lounging around in luxury, it isn’t. There isn’t a TV in the room, but there is free Wi-Fi and our Netflix account worked perfectly.

We were in London during the summer heatwave and had no problems with overheating in this room. There were two fans and the window opens a couple of inches.

The en suites are small cabin rooms with a toilet and shower very close together. Ours was clean with an amazing power shower. The bathrooms were the subject of much of the Trip Adviser negativity, but we found them fine for our use.
