"Next door to McD but nothing else near"
Very clean and sensible stripped-down hotel - no bar, restaurant, phones in room, desk, chair, room service or lounge, but good tea/coffee and TV in the room, clean en suite and therefore good value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was exactly what I needed! My partner and I were in London for 4 days we spend all four days out and about. The hotel offered a clean room with a comfortable bed and clean bathroom. It is not the most scenic room and had no added luxuries but it fit the purpose completely. I would stay here again, the location was perfect with the bus stop […] outside the door that travels from one side of London to the other it was great. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very overpriced. BYO everything."
The management of this hotel need to look at other similarly priced hotels and assess their offering. At very least I expect a drinking vessel. This place didn't supply one. I've been disappointed when I see plastic glasses in hotels but at least they are provided. No shower gel or shampoo. At least the wi-fi was free. Bad location. Want no frills?, […] get it here. Glad I only stayed one night. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value for quick overnight stay"
I stayed overnight ahead of an early work meeting and although the room was very basic with certainly no frills for the price it is good value for money. Although slightly tired in the communal parts and I wasn't sure about the bright red in the corridor the room was clean and tidy. A little more money could have been spent on the duvets and pillows […] and these were very flat and let the room down a little. Staff were very helpful and I would certainly stay there again.

"Small and basic"
Nothing in this room. No amnesties at all!! Not even a top sheet on the bed. The bathroom was small no hook for towel or shelf for toiletries and there is mould in the corner of the shower. Walls were paper thin. We could hear the neighbor using the toilet. 15 min bus ride from center of the city. Price was way to high for what we got.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"not what i thought"
friendly staff nothing in room. no glass/CUP/ anything in shower like basic shower gel. outside was unfriendly folk all around. no bar nearby free wifiGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Don't Go There!!"
The room was nasty! There was a bed (almost like a mattress on the floor) and a chair. The bed linens were dirty and the carpet had stains all over it. When I searched for my room, I set the criteria to have free parking, however when I got there, the parking was not free. In fact, the hotel knew that I had to park so I think they pushed the price up. […] Finally the next morning when we woke up, the fire alarm was going off and it sounded like jack hammers in the hallway. If you stay here good luck to ya! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Chelsea Guest House Dear Misty, Thank you for taking the time to review our guest house. We are saddened to read that you were not happy with your stay, firstly our reception team is available 24 hours per day, so if any of our guests find an issue with their room, we always ask them to come back and see us so we can rectify any issues there and then. We do have parking on-site, however on all our websites and booking channels it does state that this is chargeable, and we have a set price for the parking so the cost is never 'pushed up' if we know someone needs it, in fact guests that do not want to pay for parking are always made aware there is free parking in a local street nearby to the guest house and directed to the area. I apologise for the fire alarm going off during your visit, from time to time these things do happen and although we are aware it can be severely annoying from our guests, this is a safety feature to protect our guests and ourselves from danger, however on this occasion (thankfully) it was a false alarm. We do hope that this has not put you off from staying with us again, and hope we can welcome you back to the guest house to show you the improvement work we are undertaking to improve our guests experiences. Many Thanks, Danielle Mort Operations Manager

the location was great, for the money. the duvet on the bed was small and a little thin and there was a lot of noise from the macdonalds drive through next door. the staff were excellent and the room was clean, so for the money in that location i would overall recommend this as a place to crash in central londonGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Probably the best power shower I've ever encounted"
I used the hotel for use of the facilities after doing an urban race nearby. I knew I'd be muddy and horrible so needed somewhere to clean myself up and get changed. I booked a single room as I knew I wasn't staying. The room was fairly small, no desk and the bed/pillows was seemed cheap. That said, the price was reasonable, it was exactly what I needed […] and the shower was unbelievably amazing. I thought it was going to dribble but it didn't so thank you so much for that.

"Nieuwe kamer voldeed, verder geen aanrader"
De eerste nacht was een ramp, we kregen in eerste instantie een slordig uitziende kamer met slechte bedden en vervallen faciliteiten. Helemaal vervelend was de gehorigheid: toen de buurman midden in de nacht de tv aanzette, konden wij niet meer slapen. Vriendelijk verzoek deze zachter of uit te zetten, leverde alleen een zeer grove verwensing op. De […] staf was zeer behulpzaam en verplaatste ons direct naar een andere kamer. Dit was duidelijk een kamer die net gerenoveerd was: prettige boxsprings, frisse lakens en schone, nette voorzieningen. Hier zijn we de andere 2 nachten dan ook gebleven (waar we wel 25 pond per nacht extra voor betaalden). De buurt was ook niet bepaald fijn (aan een drukke weg = lawaai) en zeker niet fraai of handig gelegen. Pluspunt: het personeel was erg vriendelijk en behulpzaam.

Stayed there to go to a concert at the O2 Academy in Brixton - bus stop was about a 10 minute walk away and pulled up straight outside the academy. Me and my friend had a twin room - the beds were nice, comfortable and clean. Staff were friendly and gave us both an extra pillow and tea spoon's when we asked for them. It was really good that we could park straight outside. We could see McDonalds from our bedroom window, it was right next door, which was really convenient after the concert! Downsides - Our room was at the end of a pitch black corridor and we weren't told where the light was so we had to look for it. There was also a pretty gross looking chair in our room that my friend was creepy so we hid it in the wardrobe. Light in our bedroom flickered but we put the lamp on and it was fine. After having a bad experience in my last London hotel, I was very pleased with this one! Would definitely recommend.

about 20mins from the strand on the bus, the bus stops right outside no87..what you get is reflected in the price, no food no hospitality tray. but clean & ensuite, very helpful team, no sites to see nearby. but the buses are regular past the door
"Cheap and Clean and Central"

"Perfect Valentines day"
02/16/14 Anton M Bruges, Belgium
Came to London as a surprise for my partner on Valentines Day and ended up being the one really surprised. I needed a budget place that gives me access to the main attraction points in London, but everything at Chelsea Guest House was beyond my expectations. The staff was excellent, asking me if I want to do something special for Valentine's day and helping with directions. I didn't think much of it, but once I got into the room, it was a real sight. The complimentary champagne and chocolates only added to what has probably been the best day-trip I've ever taken. Thanks to all the folks at Chelsea Guest House. I'll be seeing you next year :)
"Night in London after a gig at Brixton Academy"
Stayed here last night after a gig at nearby Brixton Academy. Cant rate this place highly enough, the staff were beyond friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The hotel is literally a 2min walk from Wandsworth rd station and a short bus ride from Vauxhall station. Taxi to the academy was £12 i'm sure you could probably find an easy route on the tube but for 2 girls with little experience of London at night we opted for the taxi. The room was small but efficient with a lovely bathroom. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again or recommend to a friend.
"great place well connected!"
02/11/14 Rita_Stasonoka Dublin, Ireland
Stayed here last week for 5 days. great service. very well connected to central London with busses running about every 5-10 minutes 24h a day. The room we got was on the lover ground floor which didn't bothered us instead gave us a bit more privacy. The room was very clean and modern. Staff was beyond my expectations!!!! On arrival we were given a map of London and girl who greeted us marked bus stops near the places that are worth a visit. and a bus route map which helps a lot when it's your first time in the city. All in all very positive experience, will be staying again
This guest house wasn't a bad choice after all. The location is not the best, but moving around London is really not that hard. Is very close to the Wadsworth Road train station, which brings you west or east, but with buses you can reach many points, including the Vauxall tube station. The room was very very very small, but clean, and the staff was efficient (even in the email replies) and nice. I won't rate this too high because you can find better, but if you don't wanna spend too much money and be in a neat place, this can be a good choice. I'll consider coming again.

I recently had to go to London at very short notice to visit a very sick child at Kings Hospital. I was on a small budget with very little time to find a decent hotel. Fortunately I stumbled upon the Chelsea Guest House. I was most impressed, not only by the room which was extremely clean and modern (albeit small), well equipped and perfect for me but by the most helpful and kind staff. Unfortunately in my rush, I booked the wrong date but the Manager and the receptionist altered the booking (as I had booked through Expedia which cannot be changed) and even upgraded my room to include tea/coffee etc. I thought that was very kind and most appreciated. Admittedly, the area is not wonderful but certainly not awful - a London suburb and not the centre of London which are worlds apart! The price was extremely reasonable for my purposes and I did not feel like I was in any danger and was quite happy to walk to and from the station (where I needed to be to get to the hospital). The station is so close that if you stay longer you can get to wherever you want to be in and round London within minutes. The very next time I go to the O2 I can assure everyone that I would have no hesitation in staying at this hotel again. Thank you all.
"Great value, helpful staff"
01/06/14 Danfrier Rotherham, United Kingdom
Not situated in the best looking area of London but our room was spot on very clean and modern looked as if it had just been redone. A bus stop directly outside with only 5 minutes bus ride to Vauxhall station, McDonald's directly next door if you like fast food and a very helpful guy on reception who spent a good 10 minutes finding us an alternate tube route due to some lines being closed for maintenance. All in all very positive experience, will be staying again if we need to visit that area of London.
"A Guest House by all means"
12/10/13 dman86 Haifa, Israel
We stayed here for 3 nights. The staff were very nice and helpful. The hotel is not in the best location in London. The neighborhood was kinda scary. Not the kind to stroll around at night. The closest tube station that will take you to the city (fast) is Clapham North, not Wandsworth Road (which is the Train line - Don't make the same mistake I did). To get to Clapham North you have to walk for about 10 minutes. The room was very simple and basic.
