First the good stuff: the reception staff was unfailingly welcoming and helpful, the breakfast was hearty if not elegant, the bed was good, the water was hot, and the location close to Goodge Street and Russell Square tube stations plus shopping and eating options on Tottenham Court Road was good, wifi worked well, sometimes. However, the room was cramped, the... More

I was awoken at 1am by a loud squeaking, scratching and scrabbling. The unmistakeable sound of mice. Couldn't sleep after that. I informed the concierge in the morning; I suspect I wasn't the first person to have mentioned it.

Having read some atrocious reviews for this place I really think we might have been staying somewhere else! Whilstsome aspects of the accommodation were a bit basic, our room was more than adequate and clean in every sense and every place - definitely no bugs or mice as other reviewers had said! The en suite bathroom looked newly refurbished with... More

Convenient location is probably the only conceivable positive. I get that you can only expect so much for your money in central London, but honestly this place is genuinely a health hazard. Our room was conspicuously dirty; the carpet was grimy and faded, and there were cigarette butts piling up on the windowsills. Don't look too closely at the walls... More

My room was infested with mice. I had booked in for four nights and had to leave after two. When I pulled the bed out (room 19) to see where the mice were coming from, there was a thick layer of filth, mouse dropping and grime under & behind it. The desk clerk was unsympathetic. I was offered another room,... More

I stated when booking that I would need help with luggage. I thought that this indicated that I am disabled. I was offered a room on the 3rd floor and there are no lifts. Eventually I was given a ground floor family room for the 1st night and then moved next door to another ground floor room which was the... More

It started badly - the hotel was dirty. No soap in the room. The communal shower room was filthy - with no soap. There was one sachet of coffee and two teabags in the room - but no milk. All for 95 pounds! I was woken up in the middle of the night by a rodent in the room foraging... More

Arran House is in serious need of an update, and a good clean. The shower curtain in our room (18) looked like it was put up in the '60s, and the windows were grotty, the flower pots full of previous occupants' cigarette butts. The breakfast room is small, so if it's even half full you can expect some awkward bumps.... More

Great for easy access to London attractions. Room was small and pretty tatty, the only plus side was it was clean and the bedding was clean. If you want a peaceful nights sleep go elsewhere this place is on a street that has sirens blue lights down it every five minutes. If you want to try to block out the... More
