Historical Traveler Reviews Harlingford Hotel London

Stayed at the Harlingford and was completely delighted


The harlingford hotel is well located, spotlessly clean, has lovely decor throughout, but most importantly has the most delightful staff.

They were warm and welcoming, informative, and made our stay really special. I would absolutely recommend this hotel.

Thank You Thank You!!


I searched the internet for HOURS trying to find an affordable hotel in London for our family of four. I finally heard about this website, read the reviews listed and picked the Harlingford Hotel. We were NOT disappointed in our choice. The hotel is a converted town house. It is very clean, with lovely huge windows and high ceilings. The breakfast (included in the rate) was a full english breakfast (hot meal) or a buffet. My two teenage boys ate both! The hotel has an excellent location...across the street from a quiet park and a short walk to Russell Station underground. It is in a quiet, safe neighborhood. Staff is friendly and helpful. No complaints about the Harlingford. We will stay there again!

Now it's nice


I have been staying at the Harlingford for the last 15 years,I used to stay because it is in a convenient location,after all their recent decorating I now also stay because it's also so nice.

Harlingford Hotel


We stayed three nights at the Harlingford Hotel in early May 2003. Arrived in London via Heathrow, and took the express train to Paddington Station. Took a cab from there to the hotel. Express train is easy to use even with luggage, and carts are available at Paddington to transport luggage to taxi stand. We asked for a lower level room in making reservation, but we are assigned a third level room on our arrival. Room was the smallest that we stayed in on our three week trip in Europe. There is no lift, so it was a struggle to move luggage to the room up an extremely narrow, steep staircase. The room itself was fine (except for size) and it was updated and relatively quiet. We liked the no smoking policy for all rooms. Common areas are pleasant and the location is excellent for seeing British Museum and all Central London sites (tube station nearby). Enjoyed theater one night and pub crawling in West End another night. Felt safe in the neighborhood and on Tube. Full breakfast was fairly good and included in relatively modest rate. We would return to the hotel, but would definitely insist on a lower level, larger room.

Watch out for singles


Watch out for the grungy, miserable single rooms on the top floor - ugh. Carpet you don't want to step on barefoot.

Pleasant Stay


A pleasant stay for an inexpensive hotel in London. I wish the rooms were a bit more modern as shown on their website but the location is excellent... breakfast is wonderful in a pleasant room, and the service is impeccable. I would definitely stay here again on future trips to London.

The year we won again


In 2001 - Mrs. Lutton and I visited the home of my lineage to witness the triumph of Lord's. We stayed at the Harlingford. I still drool over the sumptous breakfast, being the right mixture of the traditional and the allure of the contemporary. Accommodation most homely and the staff - ah - indeed - the best. We travelled throughout England and the Harlingford cared for our resident luggage. TO THE FUTURE - We're back in 2005 - for not just Lord's, but DURHAM and the other test grounds - a fine introduction to 2006 and AUSTRALIA and the Soccer Ashes -

My home away from home


I've stayed at the Harlingford whenever I've travelled to London over the last 25 years. During that time, the rooms have become more modern, but the care and concern of the management remains. I have recommended this hotel to at least 100 folks, and am happy to be able to recommend it again.

Included in the price of the room is a great breakfast. Three different tube stops are within easy walking distance (Euston, Kings Cross and Russell Square), and taxi's easy to get off the main street. Don't miss the wonderful Indian restaurant just across Marchmont road. And, if you walk a few doors further you'll find one of London's best fish and chips, the North Sea Restaurant.

I can think of staying no other place when in London and cannot recommend it highly enough. Long may their prices remain reasonable.

On balance, a good hotel.


We have stayed in this hotel twice, both times for about a week. On the first visit we had a large room at the back of the hotel. It was extremely quiet, something I appreciate, being a light sleeper. Throughout the day and night the only thing we heard was a distant church bell.

On the second visit we had a tiny room at the front of the hotel. I know that London hotel rooms are generally small, but this was *too* small for comfort. We also had to keep the window closed day and night to block out the traffic sound.

That said, I would recommend this hotel as - in London terms - good value for money. There is a Safeway within close walking distance. The breakfast is fine. The staff seem friendly, though we did not make any special requests or use any of the hotel's services.

There is no elevator, something that may be a problem if you have a lot of luggage and find stairs difficult.

The guest lounge is pleasant and comfortable, and the computer set aside for guests to access the internet is handy.

A Great Budget Hotel


I highly recommend the Harlingford Hotel. It is one of the better hotel bargains in London. I like its location, in Bloomsbury, near the British Museum and within two blocks of Euston, St. Pancras and Kings Cross train stations. The breakfast provided free in the morning is in a lovely dining room, and there is cheese and fruit to take along for the rest of the day. A pub is right around the corner and there is a laundromat across the street.

After work, Kathryn and I went shopping at Sainsbury's in preparation for Friendsgiving which was taking place the next day. As the cart quickly started filling up it came clear that we would never be able to carry all of this back to her house. It is common for the carts in the stores here to require you to put a pound in so that it will unlock and you can use it. Once you bring the cart back, ...

There were lots of family pictures, toys, cradles etc. The staterooms are magnificent and you could just imagine what it must be like when it is filled with dignitaries in their finest. No pictures were allowed so I will just have to remember what it was like. We finished up with a coffee and cake in the garden. The walk out meandered through the ...

... It was a fellow guest
who crawled along the parapet outside, four stories up, come to see if he could
help. He was a really nice guy, and we let him out the door so he did not have
to return the way he came. Funnily enough, the cards worked in the door after
that, but we were not taking any chances and propped it open.

... London bus. No. 24 according to Liz would take us into London. Alright let's go. Sitting up the top of the red double decker bus snaking through the narrow streets and around corners that seemed to be only small enough for a smart car not a large double decker bus. We made our way to the centre of London. "Thank you everyone this bus terminates here" " but this isn't trafalgar square" Right no bus, wrong direction" so onto another 24 bus and off ...
