Great location, ease of check-in, breakfast, general convenience! We would do this again.

Always a pleasure to come here. Well-run, friendly staff. Yes, it's basic student accommodation so you get what you expect, but it's nicely maintained and the location is excellent.
Dr Lauren W

Very good value for the centre of London

Loved our stay. Will definitely be back next year. Wonderful.
Mrs Trish H

Great location enabling us to have two nights running at the Proms including The Last Night which was memorable. Then spent following day in Hyde Park so again handy for this event too. Rooms are clean, quiet, warm and with ensuite facilities. Reception staff were helpful thoughout our stay and we hope to return in 2018!
Mrs Tracey E

Not our first stay at Beit Hall and probably not our last. Good to see the bar has a wider range of food compared to previous visits. Ideal location for the Proms and main museums.
Mr Ian D

Perfect for the Museums and Hyde Park. Reasonably priced, clean and tidy, cheap beer in the SU.
