High praise for High Holborn!
This is a great place. It is a simple but comfortable private room at a hostel price. The room was very comfortable, spacious for one person and had a great vanity area. The shared bath and kitchen were in great shape and I never bumped into anyone else there. It felt very safe as I was travelling alone for my three days in London this was important to me. The neighborhood was unbeatable!

Had looked for a reasonably priced stay in the west end of London and found it here -great location, very clean, quiet and comfortable quarters. There’s nothing fancy about it so if that’s your expectation move on - but a comfy bed with a huge breakfast and you don’t mind a shared bath - this will fit the bill nicely.

Breakfast is excellent. Unfortunately, there was supposed to be a water fountain or something but the machine did not work.

The property was very well located near to museums, theaters, shopping and restaurants yet in the heart of the city so easy access to sightseeing.. As the property is actually for student residences the rooms were not large, no TV, radio etc and the lighting was not great. The staff was wonderful as was the breakfast which was included.
