      Historical Traveler Reviews Jesmond Hotel London

      Very good B&B


      A very good place to stay in London, clean, close to the center.

      Very helpful staff.

      Clean & quiet - not too friendly


      We booked here based on Tripadvisor reviews, and I can agree with most of the reviews on here.

      The hotel is in an excellent location, close to Euston Station, and yet it is surprisingly quiet. Three of us (friends) stayed in the triple room and it actually had three separate beds, which I believe is quite rare. (You usually get a double and a single). The price is very reasonable for London. We also liked the fact that it is a fairly small hotel and so it has a bit more of a personal touch.

      The room was clean enough and in a fair state of repair, and the shower was powerful and hot. Breakfast was very nice and there was a wide range of choices. There was tea and coffee making facilities in the room, and a TV.

      The only problem we had was that the room was not ready when we arrived with all of our luggage. We had enquired the night before about what time we could arrive - which was midday. The lady who answered the door (and who seemed to be running the hotel for the most part) seemed quite off-hand to us and just said "it's not ready you'll need to come back later" when she learned who we were. There was no "sorry" or anything like that. She seemed to be rather put out by our arrival. She did however find us somewhere to put our luggage and so we just walked around with our valuables for about an hour until we could get in the room. We were therefore cutting it a bit fine for getting to our theatre showing, but we did make it no problem.

      Besides that, we would probably use the hotel again based on the price and location.

      Friendly and convenient


      Small, friendly hotel, very convenient for Euston, UCL and Tottenham Court Road and beyond. Great shower!

      Good value hotel at excellent location!


      The worst thing about Jesmond hotel was the lack of towel hooks in the bathroom. Perhaps that gives you an idea of the quality of this place?

      It is located in a peaceful neigbourhood with plenty of good value restaurants close by and only three minutes by foot from the Goodge street underground station. Covent garden and Oxford Street are reached by foot in less than ten minutes.

      Our room was spacious, clean, with comfortable beds and with a fresh, tiled bathroom. But as mentioned above, no towel hooks.

      The staff was attentive and friendly. The breakfast was generous, even though we regret that yoghurt is not included in the english breakfast tradition! Free internet access was available until 11 pm.

      We have experience from another hotel of the similar size in this neighbourhood and we guarantee that the standard may differ enourmously, even though the prices are the same. We recommend Jesmond Hotel!

      A place to stay


      A great place to stay.

      Friendly, good service.

      Ready and willing to give any information asked.

      Two minutes walk to the centre of the most beautiful city in the world ....London.

      Highly reccomendable.

      In Big London the Jesmond Hotel Makes You Feel Like Home!


      My husband and I just returned from 7 nights in London. Our 19 year old daughter (A Princess!! is there ever was one) is spending a semester there. We decided since we went into hock to send her there we could go further into hock to visit her since we had never been to the UK. We made the decision to go for one week and only spent it in London. And that was a good decision as there is more than enough to keep you busy for one week. A friend who has travelled the world extensively suggested the Jesmond Hotel. It is small, family run and was not only 5 blocks from our daughter but also 5 blocks from the British Museum and close to many other sites, tube and bus stops. They actually are a B&B in my mind as we got a full English breakfast each morning included in our room rate. We never left hungry!! And food can be very expensive in London so it was nice to have a full tummy before embarking upon the sites.

      Our room was small by some standards but remodeled, clean and my husband insisted on a bathroom. Some hotels you share one and he did not want to. The bathroom was small but newly remodeled and served us well. We chose to not have a double bed as my husband is taller than most and they removed the double and put in two twins so we could fit.

      Being new to London we had many questions and the "family" was always available and helped us over and over. For a very small fee they did our laundry when we ran out of clean clothes (poor planning? or genius as you can pack less) and our daughter could have joined us for breakfast too if we could have gotten her to arise early enough to join us.

      The bottom line is our visit to London and our stay at the Jesmond was excellent.

      Great time in London


      I found the Jesmond Hotel to be quite enjoyable. The accomodations were clean and well-kept. The owners are friendly and helpful. The home-like atmosphere of the establishment tends to relax the quests and provide a soothing environment. The "common room" where breakfast is served is quite homey and the food was quite good, as well. The free internet access allowed me to keep in touch with home while overseas. It is located on a fairly quiet street within easy access to the tube and shops. Overall, I had a pleasant experience and would highly recommend this place to fellow travelers.

      My favorite hotel in London!


      I come to London every year and The Jesmond is my preferred place to stay. Yes, the rooms are small, but it is located in the very heart of London. You can walk to any show in Theatreland, have a great meal in Leichester Square and the British Museum is only 2 blocks away.

      The family that runs the hotel is friendly and have always been helpful and accomodating. Breakfast is VERY generous and is included in the price of the room.

      As much as I'd like to keep this little B&B a secret all to myself, I hope that people who want a REAL taste of London will take a chance and stay in this little gem. I will be taking the family to stay again in September!



      Staying in London is sooo expensive-sticker shock for Americans is the norm. This hotel, in the heart of the Bloomsbury area, was great! Rooms are small (but this is Europe) but were efficiently made up each morning with fresh towels and beds (also something not common on my last trip to Europe). Full English breakfast comes with, and the family who runs the hotel is very accomodating and helpful to us tourists. Clean bathroom facilities. Nice sitting parlor with TV and availability of some DVD movies and games. Free internet access is a plus. Centrally located - the underground is easy and quick to get to; everywhere we needed to go in central London.

      Room 7 was very hot, as compared to room 5 where our kids were...ask for rooms facing the garden where it's quieter, we're sure, as Gower Street is a busy street just a block away from the British Museum.

      I recommend to everyone!

      Repeat traveler


      A small bed and breakfast on a major street for easy bus travel around London. It is close to the Medical school and the U of London. A short ride to the theatres on a direct route.

      The couple and their 2 adult children run the hotel. They are exceedingly pleasant and quite helpful. There is a computer which the guests can access. Rooms are tight like the island but pleasant.

      Breakfast is the good English version and plentiful.

      We have stayed on 2 seperate trips and have recommended it to friends who echoed our views.

      ... after I left Adrian at the airport. We were having the Presentation of Certificates for our scholars at Girdlers' Hall (they are a very wealthy sponsor for us). The event itself went smooth and it was nice to see the scholars receive their certificates. For many of them a scholarship from FNF helps make their dreams come true and the opportunities that open up have changed their lives. We were able to eat from the buffet and I believe I had about 10 macrons (trying to fill ...

It is called the Whispering Gallery because the acoustic can carry a whisper across the dome to the other side. We then continued to the top on ever narrow stairs, sometimes the steps were less than a foot wide. Towards the top of the stairs Greg had to almost double over to get through some doorways. I ...

      Jane Austen's house beckoned from down the road as well. I needed little persuasion to wander that way, but my sense and sensibility ensured that I chose the bus instead.

      We definitely need to spend about 4 days in Bath next time to experience its splendour.

      Our final stop was Stonehenge and that delivered big time. A ...

      Today was our first bus tour; to Leeds Castle, Dover, Canterbury and Greenwich. The bus company picked us up from the hotel at 7.35am and along with other fellow travellers transported us to the bus terminal where all the tour buses depart. Along the way the tour guide ended up in a discussion about the up coming Scottish Referendum re independence from Britain. It was a very interesting insight into what may or may not ...

      Then I explored Oxford St in search of a warm jumper and got one at Mango. I was pretty tired and perked up at the sight of all these shops. I still need to find a Primark. I ended up ...
