Seriously this hotel has an amazing charm, so cozy, so warm. The staff greated us with warmly and were so kind to offer us a special room since we are newly married. The room was so comfortable and spacious. We needed this stay after a bad choice with an Airbnb appartment. I definitely recommend this hotel.

I stayed for 2 nights. My welcome was great and they carried my case to the room. (Stairs no lift) The room was small but perfect. Everything I needed and more. Very comfortable bed and good linen. It's a quiet spot in London which is rare when you can walk to places and access the tube easily. Lovely setting. The...

We booked a one night stay to coincide with a nearby theatre and birthday trip. On arrival we were greeted by very friendly reception staff who made us feel very welcome. When we entered our booked room we were surprised to be given an extremely spacious apartment which was beautifully kitted out and spotlessly clean. We were delighted by this,...

My parents have stayed at the Club in numerous occasions. They were always very satisfied by the friendly service of the staff and the quality of rooms, which they found quite big! The garden view was amazing!

We just love The Goodenough Club. It really is a hidden gem in the hustle and bustle of Kings Cross station. On Saturday morning you couldt have heard a pin drop, so calm and welcome after a busy week. The staff are warm and welcoming and the rooms/suites are second to none. Exceptionally clean and well presented, this is a...

Pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Reasonably priced for central London and really comfortable cosy room with modern bathroom and fridge too. The reception staff are friendly and the breakfast (across the square in the grand hall) was brilliant. I'd definitely stay here again.

I had tickets to an event at UCL, and stumbled across The Goodenough Club while searching for somewhere to stay nearby. I'd never heard of it, but the name caught my attention......and I'm so glad I've discovered it! What a delightful location - such a peaceful oasis, surrounded by the hussle and bustle of London. Just 5mins walk from Russel...

This is an unusual hotel. Part of a post grad halls of residence for international students and their families. We love it. Easy to park outside at weekends. So tranquil yet easy reach to tube or walk to Strand or Soho in 25 mins. Rooms large, well fitted modern bathrooms. Worth paying extra for views of the square. We got...

I booked this hotel as it had a king sized bed for a reasonable London price. (Which is still very expensive). We were pleased with the comfortable bed, the renovated bathroom, and the friendly staff. We weren't very impressed, however, that our "courtyard view" room was a full flight of stairs below ground. We couldn't see a courtyard at all,...
