The Goodenough on Mecklenburgh Square, London
A gem in Bloomsbury
quiet university area yet only a 10min tube ride from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street, Trafalgar Square and Leicester Square. Clean and comfortable. Have stayed here several times

A Club You Want to Join!
The Goodenough Club is the sort of gem that one is reluctant to share lest it be booked into the next millennium. First, is its ideal location, near Russell Square Tube,Bloomsbury, which allows easy access to the major museums and theatre district. The Club is also easy walking distance to the .British Library and the British Museum and to one of London's last authentic pubs, The Lamb (a must visit). The Club is housed across from Mecklenburgh Square, a beautiful private park to which, as a guest,you have access, in elegant side by side townhouses. You check in at 23 and may have a room, as we did, in #21. And what a room! Room 192 is actually a suite: double bed, wardrobe, and fridge looks onto a small courtyard. A small vestibule connects it to a private bathroom with deep tub, shower and heated towel rack (a new luxury for us). There is also an in-roomkettle and porcelain cups, tea biscuits and tea. The bed was very comfortable, the carpet and lighting perfect. Though it rained every day of our ten-day stay, we always felt welcomed by our cozy room and the friendly reception staff, Another interesting and special aspect of a stay at the Goodenough Club is the breakfast served either in their downstairs lounge or at the Great Hall cafeteria kitty corner to the hotel. There you join the visiting international scholars of Goodenough College in a splendid hall that evokes the Hogwarts' spirit. One item to note: there is no elevator at the Club and lots of stairs!

I just completed my second stay at Goodenough. If you have reason to stay in this area of London, it provides a low-key home base. The room was clean and the staff was very attentive. The room also had a brand new bathroom and a beautiful view of the park across the street. There are some great dining and entertainment options nearby. It's also close to a tube station. I would recommend it for those who want a quieter lodging experience. I will be back!

Surprisingly excellent place.
First we love these e name. After arriving we discovered the meaning and educational environment surrounding the name. This is truly a club associated with a post grad university. The location was excellent - quiet and peaceful in a busy London. Metro and good restaurants in the area. The room was comfortable and recently remodeled and exceptionally well done. The only draw back is there is no air conditioning. This could make for very uncomfortable summer stays.
