"Great Budget Hotel"
This is really a very good budget hotel. I stayed one evening on a business trip and found it to be very comfortable. The welcome was friendly and polite and the breakfast which was included in the price was very nice, with very good service from the staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ideal for Business Travel and The National Library"
I was prepared for the worst when I read the reviews of the Garth but I was pleasantly surprised. Here is a breakdown: 1) The complaints about the small rooms must be from people unfamiliar with staying in London. You couldn't throw a party, but if your purpose is sleeping and getting ready for some touring, it is perfect. 2) The rooms could do with […] some updating, and who ever patched them up wasn't a pro, but again, it is more than adequate. 3) The English breakfast has all the right ingredients, but is not cooked traditionally. It is mostly baked. The quality of the food was good and there was plenty of it. 4) The staff. I can't say enough about their helpfulness and kindness. Most were not first language English, but that did not stop them from being very knowledgeable about the area. This place is ideal for business travelers and students visiting the UCL campus. If you are looking to do the Bloomsbury tour, The National Library, and the British Museum, this is the place to be. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Basic but does the job"
This is a small rather downtrodden hotel on a busy London St near Tottenham Crt Rd. The room I had was too small for the two beds and narrow shower for the unobese that were squeezed into it. But it did the job of a handy and fairly cheap place to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, horrible hotel"
Very disappointed as it looked beautiful from the outside. Had an ensuite which was tiny and the shower had not been cleaned properly. Woke up to the smell of a greasy cooked breakfast (I was in room 12 on the top floor) which had wafted throughout the hotel. I don't think my room looked like the pictures - the decor was old and dowdy and unclean l […] ooking. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"'Does what it say's on the tin'"
Needed a hotel close to one of the London hospitals and this was perfect. The hotel was in a good area and near to local shops, restaurants and pubs. The decoration is a bit 'tired' and dated. I booked for a single room and that was what I got. It was in the basement, very small with limited furniture and only the bed to sit on, but was clean and tidy. […] There was a shower and sink in the room but the toilet along the passageway was very run down and there was water dripping from the roof. The television in the room was small and unable to receive the basic ITV channel. After bringing this to the attention of the manager I was moved to a double room on the top floor which was a lot bigger and the TV worked properly. Breakfast was included in the price and included a choice of cereal, toast, tea,coffee and full english. It was very filling and delicious with good service. If you are allocated a room on the top floor you better be fit as there's no lift and its a good climb, especially after breakfast as the dining room is in the basement! Overall, it does what it say's on the tin, it's clean and tidy and provides value for money at a reasonable price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Shameful but 2 star"
Quite simply a box room fit for a dog but not my dog! Even after a belly full of beer and a late night out it was still rather grim! Sheets were clean but that was as clean as it got. Bathrooms full of all residents hair and toilet aftermath. Breakfast was available and a struggle to eat considering the overflowing bin in the kitchen. Overall a youth […] hostel may be better.

"OK for a short stay"
Friendly basic hotel with a smallish room, ensuite shower but toilet in the corridor outside. Bed just about comfortable for one but lack of bedside table for lamp, and milk not replenished for second night. Did not try the breakfast as it finished at 9am. OK but not at all wonderful and especially not if you want a room to chill out during the day […] . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, budget hotel"
Ideally located not far from Goodge Street and Russell Square tube stations. A short walk to shops, bars and restaurants. Surrounded by colleges and the British Museum is a stones throw away. Reception is in the basement and staffed until 11pm. The room was small (you couldn't fully open the door because of the bed) but had a sink, tea and coffee facilities, […] a wardrobe and desk with drawers. Our room (2) was located at the rear so no traffic noise although it was directly below the shared toilet and shower room so some noise was experienced. The toilet and shower room were generally clean. Unfortunately some guests didn't have consideration for others so perhaps the staff should make more regular checks, especially during the busy morning period. Towels are provided in room and there was plenty of toilet paper! Breakfast was very good. Decent sausage, bacon, beans, mushroom, toast and egg. You helped yourself to orange juice, coffee and cereals. My only suggestion would be later operating times. Service finished at 9am on a Saturday and 9.30am on a Sunday which was a struggle! Overall, a good value option in London. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean and well run B&B"
Convenient location, well maintained hallways and rooms. But décor and carpeting need updating.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was disappointed. Staff and breakfast good, but not really anything else to recommend. Horrible room, toilet 2 floors away, smelly and not worth even the low price. You might as well stay in a hostel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location. Discusting accommodations."
I work for an airlines and have stayed in many hotels including 3rd world countries. This hotel I think ranks the worst. Pictures are deceiving and reviews are highly over exaggerated! I stayed under my better judgment and worried about bedbugs during the entire stay. Would definitely not recommend this hotel!Genuine Expedia guest review
It is very close to rail and bus connections and a good place to stay if you're just looking for somewhere to sleep and leave your things. The breakfast was hearty, and the staff very friendly and helpful. The eating area is quite small for the amount of guests, and I had to skip out on breakfast one of the days as I didn't have time to wait for a space. […] My room was in the basement and had to walk past the office area to get to the shared toilet, so it's not all that private. Cleanliness was ok, but I was there for 4 nights and the cup I used for tea was not replaced - I rinsed it out at the sink. Generally, a pleasant stay and it met my needs for the trip.

"Garth Hotel Review - Great Location"
We arrived at the hotel, which look promising, within walking distance from Euston train station and to other tourist places such as Covent Garden, Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square etc.... the hotel looks impressive from the outside with its traditional front steps and grand looking porch. However, when inside the hotel I felt it was a bit run down, […] needs decorating or definitely some attention to freshening up the paint etc.... We had a double room with shower, when opening the door to the room both my husband and I were in shock, the room was very small, with a cigarette burn on the bed cover, the room was quite dark and dingy, the shower was just a shower enclosure in the corner of the room with no privacy door. The room itself was next to the entrance to the hotel so it was very noisy when other guests were coming in / out, also we could hear the guests quite clearly talking to each other when letting themselves into their rooms. The dining room was very small and we had to share a table with another guest which I personally wasn't a fan of, the breakfast however was tasty. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location, Great Staff, Run down hotel"
Location great, staff polite, presentable and couldn't do enough for you. Let down by a lack of physical maintenance to building, outdated décor, curtains needed washing, DIY make dos and poor workmanship evident throughout building. (no mattress protectors! eeek)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I can't put up with a smelly rundown tip. I was on my own so I stayed one night but if my wife was with me I would have walked. Deeply unpleasant. The staff were nice though, I feel sorry for them.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Short walk from Euston station"
Handy hotel just a short distance from Euston station, the rooms was small and basic, with some dust on surfaces etc, Shared bathrooms were basic., however considering the price paid it was ok, on the plus side the staff were helpful and breakfast was good and hot. All in all a good hotel if you don't intend staying in, as London has so much to see […] why pay for an expensive room just to sleep? Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Smells like fried food"
I booked this online thinking it would be decent based on online photos. The room I booked had two singles instead of a double and the room itself was maybe 5 foor wide. Not cool. And the bathroom and shower were public. Gross. But the real reason I left and couldn't stay the night was the horrible smell of fried food. It was just unbearable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel in an ideal location"
The hotel itself is perfect for a weekend away, me and my girlfriend stayed over and loved how everything is in walking distance. The hotel is everything you need and for a great price, I would definitely recommend it.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is an inexpensive London hotel. The room was typically small but all aspects of the service were good. The drawback to this hotel is that sound travels easily between rooms and one night I was awkened by boise from a room across the corridor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Attending for short stay. Perfect location. Poor room but accommodating staff wouldn't recommend if planning to spend more than sleep in the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Very Bad Hotel"
This hotel is not a great stay. I am not a hotel snob and most of the time just stay places for business with a place to get my head down for a few hours. The list of issues with this hotel is so long. The place was grubby, Shower in the room (literally in the room) was blocked and would not drain so had to have a 2 min shower before the water spilled […] over onto the floor. Beds needs replacing. Toilet was not in the room and up on the second floor i could go on... the two bits that were good was the staff were very friendly and could not do more to help and the cooked breakfast was good, apart from that it was not a trip that I would repeat and not even cheap!

"Just OK to be in the center of the city"
Too old for the money they ask.Genuine Expedia guest review
The first room T.V did not work and no phone in room, was moved to top floor to a different room and pipes in shower/toilet smelt very bad.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK but slightly worn"
The Garth is in a fairly good location but it's old and worn. OK...but not a bargain at its price and slightly worn and not extremely clean. The staff was wonderful and the breakfast ladies very kind but the whole hotel feels tired.Genuine Expedia guest review
Ok hotel for what I wanted and a nice full English breakfast includedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Its not great"
Its budget rate for a reason, taps dripped, repairs bodged in the past but if its just somewhere to doss down it was fairly clean and in crazy london prices you get what you pay for. Dont take the partner for a special weekend or may single for drive homeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is located in a suitable place and the staff are very supportive and friendly. I felt safe and comfortable in this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
In desperate need of renovation. Clean (ish) hard beds, tired and in need of a good clean. Only good things were location and breakfastGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"1 Night Stay"
I stayed for 1 night at the Garth Hotel. It was okay, the room was very small but decent, and the toilets kept really clean. The only downside is that in the morning, there was a strong smell of grease coming from the kitchen that permeated around my whole room, causing my clothes to smell awful. Other than that, it was okay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"You get what you pay for!"
OK, it's not The Dorchester, but if you want a warm and a reasonably comfortable place to sleep then it's fine. The breakfast was fine as well. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes to walk to the centre of Soho, Staff are friendly enough too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Boys trip to London."
This Hotel is a bit on the tired side. However if you are on a budget and just need a bed for the night- this is just fine. Good Wi Fi, Good Breakfast, Realy Good Location. Not a place I would take the wife for a romantic trip, But for a lads trip or such like just fine. Would use again.Genuine Expedia guest review
I've probably stayed in worse hotels than this, but I'm struggling to remember one. On the plus side it is only a short walk to Goodge Street tube and to be fair the room is kept clean and the bedding looked like it had been laundered. On the negative side... electric sockets hanging off the bedroom wall; mysterious holes in the walls and skirtings […] bulging with expanding foam; a grim shared bathroom with an overflowing kitchen bin(!) cracked 1970s tiles and a slow draining trickle of a shower complete with a carpet of other peoples 'body hair'; dirty carpets, ancient decoration and random bits of wiring cable-tied on to the banisters just round off the ambiance. For anyone to charge as much as I was for a tiny 'double' room with the cheapest, most uncomfortable catalogue-store bed is disgraceful but perhaps an indication of the state of hotel provision in London. In the last 12 months I've stayed in budget hotels in Paris and Stockholm - 2 of the most expensive cities in Europe - and paid significantly less money for a much more pleasant experience. Whoever runs The Garth should be ashamed of themselves. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"don't go there"
Our stay at the Garth was a huge disappointment. The photo's on the website are not up to date. There is no garden. Used to be a lovely garden but long, long ago. Everything is overgrown and there's litter all around. The windows were not cleaned in years and the net curtains were black of dirt. It is not a family run hotel anymore. The breakfast was […] served in the basement where not a single window could be opened. Outside 30C. The kitchen was also situated in the basement, no windows there as well. We had a sewer smell in our bedroom cause of leaking sewer pipes outside. When a toilet or shower was used in the hotel we heard a noise and could see the liquid disappearing in a hole. The smell was horrible. Emergency and Fire regulations are not up to standard. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Visit to Garth"
OKGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My room was adequate for one night's stay. It's a shame they couldn't spend a bit on it because the building is lovely. What lets it down is its tired, mismatched furniture and odd arrangements such as a shower cubicle inside the room. The bottom of the net curtains looked as though someone had taken garden shears to them. The wash basin had toothpaste […] smeared on it and the edges of the carpets were grey with dust. Fortunately the bedsheets were clean. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Basic hotel with great location"
Reception staff were friendly and allowed us to leave items at the hotel after check out. The location of the hotel was perfect but the road noise was loud and disturbing. The breakfast was very basic and the staff were less pleasant in the kitchens. The hotel is a bit tired with regard to decor but the price we paid reflected that.Genuine Expedia guest review
Overall I wasn't impressed with the hotel. The rooms weren't very nice, the bathrooms weren't very clean, and the breakfast staff just seemed stressed instead of helpful or friendly. I wouldn't book a room there again. I know there are better places to stay, especially considering the price I paid.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Not comfy, very cramped and not like the photo, furniture dated and found rubbish in a draw.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was clean;linen was fresh.Room was shabby;fixtures and fittings hanging off. Room furniture dilapidated and not matching. Windows were filthy and had not been cleaned for an age.Bathroom tiles were chipped. Very basic facilities for the money.

Budget hotel, adequate standard so you get what you pay for!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Bedrooms was quaint, typically British, could use a bigger pillow. Shower left a lot to be desired. But was made up for a terrific cooked English breakfast each morning. :) Stairs cod be a challenge for some. Good location, walking from train and shops, but away from noise. :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very small room, with two single beds (and about 10" between them). No chair, very small shower in room, but (shared) bigger and better on half landing. Help-yourself cereal, coffee. and fruit juice.Tea and full English breakfast (cooked to order), Room clean but general decor well-used and rather tired. Would I stay there again?- yes, but I'd try elsewhere […] first. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
After an error occuring during the booking of the hotel we quickly got in contact with the customer support at hotels.com.. The person in the other end was very helpful and we got the problems sorted out in no time! When we got to the hotel the lady there was all smiles and helpful so we found the room fast and made ourselves comfortable. The only negative […] aspect were some faulty wall sockets but thats it. All in all a very good experience! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I booked this after reading the reviews and was happy with the room I got. Even though it was in the basement it was quiet and away from the traffic, although a little basic it had a shower and tea making facilities. I would recommend this hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Even though I was early I had a choice of rooms with a speedy check in and and assistance with my luggage to my room did not partake in breakfast which included as it was not served until 8 am and i had to leave for an early flight at 6 am Although ever effort is made to make the hotel comfortable it could use some serious renovations.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"small sink, big kettle"
Comfortable and good location. Staff were helpful and friendly. As London prices go these days this was reasonable value, biggest frustration was having a family room with family sized kettle and a vanity sink. AT least it was en-suite.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
