Central London hotel ideally situated for British Museum, University of London, Oxford Street, etc. Smallish rooms, but certainly not the smallest in London. Some with showers, loo; others without. Good breakfast.
Unique Quality: An 18th century Georgian townhouse
Hi, I'm still searching for an ideal place to stay in London where I can have easy access to Bayswater and SOHO at the same time and found this hotel.Garth Hotel which is advertised as an award winning small budget hotel which is a member of various travel orgs there in the UK. They even have testimonials from happy customers. Has anyone heard or stayed in this hotel? (Underground nearby are Euston Sq, Goodge St, Tottenham Crt and Russel Sq). The rate of under 50 pounds sounds too good to be true. (Although for an australian with meager means this is actually very steep). Any comments on hotel or location will be appreciated.
Can't say that I know this hotel,but don't be too suprised as there are budget hotels in London for that price.
The Regents Palace Hotel in Picaddilly has similar prices.
Okay these places are not the Ritz,but they are somewhere to sleep.
As for the location,its not too bad.
Not totally central but within a few minutes,and the stations you mentioned are accessible to different underground lines allowing you to have plenty of options.
Certainly only a few minutes away from Soho.Go to Leicester Square station for Soho,a couple of mins walk.
Bayswater can be reached by getting on the central line at Tottenham Ct Rd getting off at Queensway and a couple of mins walk from there.
Sorry not more helpful as to the hotel,but good luck!
Thank you for your reply. Believe me its quite helpful. I was in London about 10 years ago and never used the underground but this time I actually want to use the tubes instead of wasting my money on taxis.

Thanks for the tip. The reviews in Tripadvisor on the Garth was very mixed. What I have concluded and this is true of most small hotels and B & B's are the rooms and beds are not uniform. It's a bit of a pot luck especially if you've never stayed in the place. I guess this is the nature of B & B's as no rooms are axactly the same which is also its charm but can work horribly against the paying guest. The comments of guests (on Garth) were so extremely different that you'd wonder if they stayed in the same hotel. Plus these small hotels all seem to have endorsements from travel books, magazines and even tourist boards and still receive very bad reviews from guests. But you know what? For 49.50 pounds /room, w/ ensuite and english breakfast, I might just try my luck. Wish me luck and I will post my review when I get there.
