      Historical Traveler Reviews Stanley House London

      Never again...

      from

      I with my spouse, could hardly stay in the dark double bed room (about 9" * 10" sized room included double bed, cabin shower of 2" * 2" size, stained toilet, a cabinet and a small tele. Imagine the area you get for standing and luggage...) for about 5 minutes.

      It would have given me NO satisfaction for £55/- per night charge (this included breakfast which did not fascinated me after looking at the room); hence moved to a much clean, spacious and decent hotel nearby. I think one really requires a good place to relax at the end of a busy day schedule and need to get refreshed for the next day. I think this place would simply be a FAILURE to provide even normal relaxation and satisfaction of the money spent.

      Budget ... as promised

      from

      The Stanley Hotel delivers what it promises - a very basic hotel with just beds and a washbasin. Actually, the hotel description I got from bookings.org said that I should be finding a shower in the room while in fact, they were shared. In any case, do not forget the key deposit when checking out.

      Even so, there was one particular receptionist who was probably around 50 or older who was very nice, especially to my wife and very very considerate, including bringing her some early breakfast because she had to leave before breakfast. Keep up the good work!

      Watch the key deposit!

      from

      To be honest I really wanted to give this hotel five stars if the clerk didn't rip off the deposit fee when check out. He gave us the old English notes (5 pounds) that were useless for any shopping.

      Accommodation, location, food, and room facility were all nice but the employee..

      Good value, centrally-located budget hotel

      from

      We have stayed at The Stanley House Hotel twice now; in January 2004 and November 2001, both for two nights.Although our room (en-suite with shower) was basic and rather small, it was also clean, comfortable and warm  very important as it was the middle of winter both times! The main entrance was locked after a certain time in the evening, but we were given a key and could come and go as we pleased. Reception was manned 24 hours.A full English breakfast was included in the price of £45/room/night, which we felt to be very reasonable. However, it was only served until 9am, which we did find a little early, and so didn t get to try it. The absence of a lift did not bother us (60 narrow stairs to our room on the top floor), but it could be something to take into consideration when booking.The location was ideal for our sightseeing trips to London, being just a few minutes walk from Victoria Underground. Access to Gatwick via the Gatwick Express was also very quick and convenient.All in all, a very pleasant, friendly and centrally-located budget hotel. We will definitely be staying here on our next visit to London.

      Do not stay here

      from

      Stayed there last minute through a booking agency. The room was horrible, dusty, smokey....felt ill the next morning from breathing it all in. Shared toilets are down the stairs, not very practical. Cooked breakfast was nice but did not make up for the room......

      Disgusting...

      from

      I found this hotel through a booking website. It sounded okay... and it was only 30 pounds a night. I figured, I would only be there at night so I shouldn't care about the amenities. I was so wrong. The hotel is located in a shady area of Belgravia ... very close to the huge Victoria station. My room was on the 5th floor and there was NO elevator and I had to lug up my heavy baggages on the steep steps. When I arrived in my room, it was pretty clean and the lights were dingy.

      Nothing in my room worked: the heat, the hairdryer, the telephone (they said they were having problems with the phone). The shared shower was down the stairs but the water couldn't reach like 78 degrees. The shower itself was so small, even for someone thin like me. There was daily clean-up room service though. It's only saving grace. The daily breakfast was poor. I had a scoop of baked beans, a piece of sausage, a fried egg, a slice of bacon with some toast. Of course, the breakfast came out COLD. I hated this hotel so much that I went to an internet cafe and found a nicer hotel in Earl's Court. I stayed for two nights instead of the five. My advice: Don't even THINK of staying in this hotel... even if you're on the most tightest budget. It's horrible!!

      Good for last minute budget hotel

      from

      We arrived in London Nov. 7th 2003, with no prior hotel reservation. We stayed at the Stanley House Hotel thanks to the hotel desk at Gatwick, for 45 pounds. The hotel was old and the room was outdated as someone wrote earlier but for the price it was good. Breakfast was tasty and better than the breakfast at the Radisson Edwardian Grafton(we stayed there on a prior visit). The staff was friendly.The hotel was easy to get to, a short walk from Victoria Station. Overall we would say that this hotel was a decent place to stay at the last minute for the price.

      Not at all fancy just a good place to rest your head.THE LESSON TO BE LEARNED HERE IS TO MAKE RESERVATIONS PRIOR TO YOUR ARRIVAL IN LONDON.

      Good on a Budget

      from

      Excellent price, location not bad, a couple of minutes from Victoria Station. Rooms a little outdated, we particularly found the beds impossible to sleep in, saggy and lumpy mattresses. Frommer's was raving about this hotel and we were naive enough to believe it. Be sure to ask for a Big room, we paid 45 English pounds for one. What bothered me was the following: prior to my joining him, my spouse spent time in London for business, paid 35 pounds per night at Staneley Hotel; I joined him a couple of days later and our rate was increased by 10 pounds per night for staying in that same, extremely SMALL room. We left and returned at the end of our vacation for one night - what a shocker to see that bigger room, double in size, and we were charged the same as for the small, cramped room.

      Stanley House is great on a budget

      from

      The hotel is an excellent location if flying into Gatwick. Direct train from the airport to Victoria Station and no further connection necessary, just a seven minute walk down the street. Rooms are not fancy but clean and some have bathrooms. To save a few bucks you can opt to use the community facilities. A hot english breakfast is included and served daily 7:30-9:00. The smell of bacon in the morning is a great way to wake up. A lot of other hotels provide continental breakfast only, if any at all. And make sure to negotiate, negotiate, negotiate on any quoted published rate. Rates are often cut during slow periods.

      Too Tired to Trawl

      A travel blog entry by rebecca.taylor on Oct 18, 2014

      Katie, Aileen and I had a plan to go trawling for men tonight in Brixton but since Aileen was pretty tired, we just ended up going round to her flat, drinking ginger beer and eating home made pasta while watching "Top 40 dance tracks."

      Sometimes we all need a quiet night ...

      ... London. Unfortunately there was no Sean Bean, Michael Caine or Katy Perry.

      Next was Harrods. For me this wasnt as amazing as I had imagined. I felt like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman with the shop people being very snobby and looking down on you. It amazed me that they had Gucci for kids! When we went to the toy department though it was another story. The staff were demonstrating toys and there was a huge lego display from Guardians of the ...

      As usual, none of us wanted to leave where we were, but the time we had allotted to York was through today. We managed to fit in two more things this morning before catching our cab. This included visiting the York castle museum, and the remains of the castle of William the Conquerer. Both were spectacular in their own ways. The museum was huge. With multiple floors and ...

      ... Paul's cathedral. Then we headed to the museum of London which covered the city's whole history from the Beginning of civilization to today. I felt like I was in an interactive Mrs. Joyal's 'History of Britain' class I took in high school. Later we all went out to dinner then I prepared for my interview in the morning! I could hear the whole city yelling over the World Cup! I felt like I was the only one that wasn't ...

      ... living here for four months! We headed to dinner at this awesome restaurant in Putney called The Toy Shop. Cheap and yummy cocktails, and I got my dinner served in a lunchbox! The food was great and I loved how original it was. Great to see Bec, and hopefully we will get to run into her again on our travels :) Can't believe how fast the days are going already. Only get a few days more in London and then it's off to ...
