I enjoyed my stay at Wilson House. My room was spacious and bright. I was in the annexe, which was very quiet. The location was excellent and allowed me to walk or to take public transport to my destinations. I was particularly pleased with with the reception and security. Happily recommend it to others.

Great location. Room v clean. No complaints whatsoever
Mr Rosemary M

I would recommend this option over a 'budget' hotel any day. The location was quiet, with easy access to shops, restaurants, and the tube and buses into central London. The premises were secure, the staff helpful, the room and facilities spotless and of a decent size.

Mrs Veronica N

Wilson House is in an excellent location near Paddington Station and it was easy to walk to the V&A and Museum of Natural History. Also convenient for taking trains for day trips to Bath, Cotswolds and Oxford. Room was comfortable and the bathroom clean. It was disappointing to see how careless students are in the kitchen but I was still able to prepare my meals and enjoy the company of several fellow travellers.
Ms Judith L

Very friendly staff,great location
Mr Mauro R

The location is very good, you can get to anywhere in London downtown in 30 minutes by Tube. The room is clean and the facilities are maintained very well. The staff are nice and helpful. Highly recommended.

Really nice place where to stay if you are a student! I was in a single room, simple, but very nice and clean. I also enjoyed the other facilities such as common rooms, table tennis, the piano and the kitchen, new and beautiful. I had a lovely stay, and I really recommend Wilson House, especially for students.
