Descent place at a great location. The experience to stay in a students' room was interesting. The rooms are basic but provide everything needed for a stay over.
Mr Ivan R

The room for a single person and taking into acount it is student accomodation was perfect. Clean and tidy, and food prices at Student discount prices allied to the location in South Kensington, on the doorsteps of the Royal Albert Hall was simply wonderful. So really superb value for money and I shall return either later this year and most certainly next year.
Mr Shaun F

This is the third time I have stayed in Beit Hall, it is such good value for money in a brilliant location for all the museums. Although I was on the top floor ( and there are a lot of stairs ) this did mean it was very quiet and good for a night's sleep. Free access to the swimming pool was a bonus.
Mr John B

Enjoyable as ever and a great location. Would have preferred the lift to be working when walking up 4 floors (note there is the alternative lift in the west wing and a walk across the building but couldn’t be bothered as I need the exercise!)
Mr John T

Nice, clean room and helpful, friendly staff. Breakfast was good, too. Thank you for a lovely stay.
Mrs Heidi J

Very happy with my stay in Beit Hall this summer (July 2019). Staff were very nice, efficient and helpful. A very high standard of cleanliness throughout. Rooms have everything you need and the beds are so comfortable. Location is great - especially if you are visiting the Royal Albert Hall - and is a short, pleasant walk to South Kensington tube station. Great value for money - especially with the discount for longer stays.
Ms Dale A

Excellent location for Kensington and Knightsbridge. Next to Royal Albert Hall. Rooms spacious and comfortable. Basically equipped but tea and coffee making facilities available. Clean and crisp linen. Lacking TV and plugs next to bed. Staff really helpful and happy to stow baggage. Very good value. Happy to recommend and will stay again.(outside term time!)
