Home from Home
We stayed a whole week at the Langham Court and found it to be excellent value. It is small and homely. the staff are superb in their desire to please. Bedrooms are small but not pokey. Bathrooms and showers are well appointed and kept spotless. Superb location for shopping and sightseeing, but poor for car parking. The hotel does not offer big hotel facilities but is a real home from home as far we are concerned. A definite return venue.
VERY CENTRAL BUT ROOMS SMALL
Just back from a short trip to London and stayed at the Grange, Langham Court. We chose this hotel for it's location and it was in an excellent location. The hotel was a little disappointing though. The rooms were very small, we had a double and a single bed in our room (there are no triple rooms at this hotel). Myself and my daughter shared a double bed. I would say the bed was only 4 foot wide. It was very small. The bathroom was also small, and the bath was not full size. However everything was clean and the breakfast was nice. We spent as little time as possible in the room as there was not enough room to swing a cat. The staff were ok, not over friendly, but efficient.
Oh that uncomfortable bed!
Room large by London standards......but the bed was so uncomfortable.
Very shabby. Dark area to walk at night. Breakfast good. Few of the staff spoke English. Would not stay there again.
Excellent value, clean and comfortable, great breakfast
My husband and me stayed here the week before Christmas, and were delighted with our stay. The hotel was in a quiet location, yet close to Central London and all the shops. The room was fairly small (for central London) but were were given a triple room for the price of a double, which was nice. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, and nicely furnished. The staff were helpful, and the breakfast was superb - lots of choice and well cooked. Excellent value for money, and we're going back next week!
What happened to this hotel?
I chose the Langham Court Hotel because of the wonderful stay I had there years ago. During my visit in Dec. 2003, things were considerably different. I started to lack confidence in the staff once they couldn't even give me correct information about the immediate neighborhood.
Little English was spoken so every interaction was unsmooth. When the elevator broke down, there was never assistance with luggage. I had to request help with a cab, but the bell staff had much difficulty and took nearly 30 min. to find one. Because they didn't speak English, I started to have doubts that they were actually working on getting a cab. And I was the only one waiting for one! The only good thing was the full breakfast buffet included in the rate. Overall, I am disappointed in how this once delightful hotel has downgraded their customer service.
Nice hotel, but not to be trusted with your credit card
Hotel is nice enough and good for the price range and location. Very nice breakfast. However, after paying for room service using my credit card, I later discovered on receiving my credit card bill that I had also been charged 30 pounds for telephone calls I didn't make. I complained and they refused to give me my money back.
I was actually going to go back a few weeks later for a weekend but after that experience I tried to cancel the room. After the first experience, I checked back to make sure the room had actually been cancelled, since I had booked online with credit card. I had to make in total 3 phone calls and write an email before somebody cancelled the room.
I was very pleased
I spent 7 nights in June 2003 in the Langham Court. I found the room very comfortable but quite small compared to American standards. The cleanliness I felt was above average to excellent.Also, I never heard noise from inside the hotel from other rooms, hallways, etc. I did have my window open so did hear street noise, pub across the street, but it quiets down at a reasonable hour. The location is really excellent for shopping, dining, sightseeing, etc. Plenty of restaurants within blocks and a little market right on the corner. The full English breakfast was great. I don't normally like hotels that include breakfast because I figure if it's awful you're stuck paying for it every morning. Not so at the Langham Court. I would have ate there even if breakfast was not included.The staff, other than in reception, was very very nice, helpful, and polite. I did not find the receptionists all that friendly for some reason. But they did provide me with a fan for my room promptly when I asked (no air conditioning) I look forward to staying there again sometime soon.
No air conditioning or water coolers
I have just spent two very uncomfortable nights at the Grange Langham Hotel,i realise that the temperatures were higher than normal,however one would expect a 4* hotel to have a least water coolers on each floor,as air conditioning is non excistant,this coupled with the small rooms meant that a comfortable nights sleep was out of the question.It is a fairly nice hotel,and very convenient for seeing the"sights",tube trains,restaurants etc,however a reactive response to the weather conditions would have been welcome,and should certainly be considered for the future,before they lose customers due to them
Home away from home on the Grange
Wonderful Victorian facade. Reasonably quiet (for central London) street, bordering Marylebone and Bloomsbury. Regent Street nearby: shop your heart out, dear. For chamber music enthusiasts, it's a short trip to Wigmore Hall, if you can avoid being run over on the heavily traveled northern extension of Regent Street. The Wallace Collection is also nearby, and art aficionados will do well to fall by there for a few hours. Rooms are average size for England (that means dollhouse size if you're used to American hotels), and well appointed. My one visit to the hotel restaurant downstairs was pleasing.Since Grange took the place over the bottom-liners have made their influence felt: no more free newsapers placed outside your door each morning, staff from rent-a-smile who are fluent in half a dozen languages, none of them English.Out of curiosity I just checked the tariff -- well north of $200 a night. Blimey O'Riley! You won't be unhappy at this place but it's not good value for money, even by London standards.

... the elusive Tube tickets, and then he accompanied one of the classes to the London Eye while the rest of us tried to decide what to do. I've been to London enough by now that there wasn't anything really pressing that I wanted to see, so I tagged along with Tom, Emma, Adam, and Larry to Larry's favorite restaurant, Gordon's. It was the coolest winery restaurant I've ever been to. It was all underground in these cool cave-like rooms, and it ...
A few days ago we visited Hampton Court Palace (http://www.englishmonarchs.co.uk/hampt on_court_palace.html) . This palace dates back to the Tudor reign of Henry VIII in the 1500's. It's an interesting place for a couple of reasons. The palace was in continuous use as a royal court for hundreds of years, and then abandoned as a residence by George III in the 1800's. ...

We first went to Primark which is like a Walmart clothing store with 10 million people fighting over $5 sweaters. People were downright mean and we grabbed the cheap items we wanted and ran out the door. Next we went ...

Never have I met someone who had actually drawn me a map and given me written instructions of how to get somewhere.
Finding her place was like a piece of cake.
And so was getting back to town to meet my lovely friend George in Leicester Square.
I was late. How unusual.
... was still lovely. Organisation over we set up our new uk SIM cards and headed out to meet an old friend of Emma's who took us around some beautiful streets. The names I cannot remember and also to an amazing park "holland park" where we saw some amazing peacocks, and a Japanese garden. We also found a shop that everything was only £1 pound. Amazing! :) It's only a quick overview of the past few days but it's now been documented. My body is exhausted so I'll call it a ...
