A peaceful place to stay in London
I used Goodenough college just as an overnight stay in the middle of a long journey. The staff, late at night, were friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean and the bed surprisingly comfortable, if a little squeaky. The location in central London is quiet. It's important to remember that this is an academic institution letting out spare rooms, not a dedicated hotel. But it does it surprisingly well.

Fabulous location, great room, good value!!!
Fabulous location, in the heart of Bloomsbury. Really lovely college-room accommodation, and although there was no en-suite this was no problem and the facilities were close at hand, comfortable and super-clean. Great staff, a warm welcome and an amazing view from the room! Highly recommended and I'll definitely be staying again!!!!

Good overnight accommodation
Good location for a one night stay. Secure buildings with entry on key card and reception staffed 24/7. Room was clean, fine for somewhere to sleep. Comfortable bed, plenty of storage space. No TV but not an issue if you just need somewhere to sleep. Generous tea/coffee offering in room and a fridge was a bonus too.
