Mr Dominic T, September 2015: Enjoyed my experience immensely. Took me back to my high school days.
Mr Liam B, September 2015:
Mme. Bernice A, September 2015: Good value for a great location, kind receptionists. Two nearest showers unavailable for first night but fixed by second night. Spacious clean kitchen facilities. I think a £60/night tariff would better reflect the accommodation offered.
Mrs Grace O, September 2015: Considering this is London, the accommodations, for the money, were good. The location was excellent.
Ms kim W, September 2015: Reception man very helpful. Great to be able to use kitchen. Brilliant central location
Mr Charles C, September 2015: Have used university rooms before and as last time everything was excellent;
Could not have been better for central London and really good value for money ,will use again for sure.
Miss Christina P, September 2015: Had a very nice conversation with a lady at the reception downstairs - very helpful, very friendly.
The accommodation of University of Westminster is definitely the cheapest option if you don't want to stay (and never sleep) in a 15 bed dorm
in some random hostel.
Overall a great stay - definitely again, thank you!
Mr Terence J, September 2015: The experience was exactly as I expected. The room was basic and quite threadbare but it was generally clean. The free WIFI was an excellent surprise. The lady at reception at booking in was lovely and friendly. I would use this facility again.
Mr Richard R, August 2015: secure, clean and tidy. good base to see London from. Will be using Wigram House again.
Miss YUEH-PING L, August 2015: The location is very convenient, very near to Victoria Station (for coach, train and tube). The room is clean and we can use the kitchen to make our own meal. Highly recommend.
Ms Bethany S, August 2015: Helpful if printing services were available
Miss Eleanor P, August 2015:
Mr Emiliano L, August 2015: The place and the accomodattion was very fine!
Mrs Sabra K, August 2015: Great value for money. We stayed at the Westminster campus, which was not even a 5 minute walk from the Victoria Subway station and Westminster Abbey. Whenever we go to London, this will be one of our first choices for accomodations!
Mrs Sandra W, August 2015: Staff super efficient and polite.Very central for all tourist attractions with good cafes and pubs offering excellent food and service close by.
Mr Julien L, August 2015: We booked one room for 2 night. That room was nice but we didn't know it hadn't bathroom in that room.

Mme. Michele P, August 2015:
Sra. MARIA SOLEDAD C, August 2015:
Dr Ruben M, August 2015: Great location, good facilities, amazing price!!!!
Mrs Gillian T, August 2015: Excellent value accommodation in city centre, with hire bikes nearby!
Mr Stanley D, August 2015: This establishment is in a good location, but that's were it ends. I paid A$120 for a night in a dump. My bed was the equivalent of a roll away. Honestly student accommodation and horrid. The woman on reception was helpful and adorable.
Mr Jeffrey P, August 2015: We enjoyed our stay. the accommodation wasn't the Ritz, but was good value for money.
we were pleasantly surprised by the quietness of the location, despite being so close to national/underground train lines and tourist areas.
we would definitely stay again.
Miss Ruth B, August 2015: I was really pleased with the standard of accommodation and it was very convenient for me as I was arriving at and leaving from Victoria Station. I would definitely use the accommodation again.
Mrs Cristina B, August 2015: I had a great stay. We stayed for a week and only had noise issue on one of the nights. It was promptly taken care of by reception. The beds were comfy and even though it was shared facilities I never had to wait to use the wc or shower. The only fault I can think of is the desk blocked part of the window. We moved it around a few times until we were able to find the best configuration to open the window for max ventilation. I have stayed in several dorms in London. I would recommend this location to anyone who is going to London.
Mrs Tina M, August 2015: All receptionists were great, very helpful when needed alternate transportation due to Tube strike, nice to have laundry facilities on site, great neighborhood, walking distance to tourist sites, thank you all
Mrs Lynette M, August 2015: Great location, staff very helpful, great to be able to leave luggage on arrival and departure day. Shower unfortunately blocked on last day, but staff were on the case to get it fixed. The accommodation was very basic, but exaxactly as described and as expected. Very useful to have access to a kitchen. Could have been a bit cleaner in general (we wiped marks off wall by bed!) but still would recommend for people who really wanted a great location and didn't need all the frills!
Prof Popentiu Vladicescu F, August 2015: Excellent service, very friendly people.
Dr Polly B, August 2015: Overall, we were quite satisfied with the room. Especially the wifi worked very well! Only the mattress of the bed furthest of the window was rather bad. Due to this, one of us has not slept very well.
Mrs Linda C, August 2015: Great location! Walls very thin & creaking floorboards. Very basic but clean! Would def revisit.
Mr David R, July 2015: Superb location.
Miss Stephanie R, July 2015: The room was very dark and small. compared to the rooms with view to the street it is weigh too expensive. The rooms not facing the street shoud be a little more cheaper
Mr Brian G, July 2015: Expected basic room and was perfect for my needs. Plenty of hot water
for a nice bath. Would certainly recommend summer visitors this accommodation.
Mr Jeremy D, July 2015: Room was basic, but was very good value for the centre of London. The porters at the property were friendly. The kitchen was also clean with a good range of utensils for basic self-catering.

Ms Rebecca B, July 2015: very helpful staff , central location was excellent
Ms Mari P, July 2015: I think the floors should not be carpeted if they cannot be kept clean. Room was tiny with a view to a brick wall. corridors floors were very squeeky. But location was really excellent!
Mr Graham B, July 2015: It was very useful to be able to store our luggage safely after we had to check out as our train back wasn`t until later in the day , this was a real boon. the fresh towells each day was nice. the area was lovely and quite. pity it is not an all year round option.
Dr Gabriela T, July 2015: Hello, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit; the staff were wonderful, helpful, friendly and polite. However... the showers were awful!!! There was barely any water? There was not enough water to wash my hair!! That was rather a surprise, and a disappointment. Otherwise, it was fabulous.
Mr David M, July 2015: Wagram House is in a very convenient location, we enjoyed our stay, it is inexpensive for Central London, it is pretty basic though!
Miss Bernadette W, July 2015: Excellent! Fantastic location, building and rooms were very clean and tidy. Although basic, the kitchens were stocked with all utensils and equipment that you would need. Bed was comfy too. The receptionist(s) were very lovely and really helpful. The only vague negative would be that the floorboards are very squeaky in some parts of the building. Overall I would definitely stay here again.
Miss meihui Z, July 2015: Second time stay here. Nice location walking distance to the underground, bus stops and the Victoria station.

Mrs Monique O, July 2015: Great location for tourists! Friendly and welcoming staff.
The other occupants should respect the silence policy a little more after a certain hour. I appreciated being able to welcome friends in the common room. I would recommend it for its convenient location, for the cleanliness of the room and facilities, and for its cost.

Mrs sue D, July 2015: Lady on reception was very friendly and helpful
Ms Loretta L, June 2015: Location very convenient near to Victoria station. Pantry and laundry facilities were basic but very helpful. If the beds could be a fixed stable type would be nicer.
Miss Helen C, June 2015: This was my second visit to Wigram House. Its central location and value for money makes it my first choice when visiting London in the summer. The room was clean and tidy and the staff could not be more helpful.I would recommend it to anyone.
Mrs Deborah L, June 2015: This is a good value option. It doesn't have the comfort or atmosphere to encourage me to spend time there during the day but then at such a low price one cannot expect that level of facility. I would be very willing to stay there again.

Mr Thomas R, August 2014: Good stay, really helpful friendly staff & clean facilities.

The building is in an excellent location

The rooms were clean and a great option for staying in Central London due to the great price we could afford a single room for our teenage son rather than trying to squeeze into a family room due to cost
Highly recommend to anyone visiting London
Ms Anne R, July 2014: Perfect location, both when it comes to public transportation (getting there and away is very easy with Victoria Station around the corner) and to sights.
Mr Alex C, July 2014: Room was a bit out dated however this was expected as is all student accommodation so was no problem at all, it was fit for purpose!

Lovely friendly welcome and goodbye as well, have already recommended to family and friends! Thank you
Miss Anna B, July 2014: Felt very safe, and I enjoyed how quiet the building was. Receptionists were not very helpful and it would have been helpful if they could give recommendations of places to go or restaurants to eat at. Good location, and very easy to get to from the tube.
Mrs Ruth N, July 2014: Thank you for the welcome & friendliness we received from both reception workers/managers.It made our overnight stay more personable & the ability to leave our overnight back in keeping for the day so we could attend our special event was a massive bonus.Impressed by the cleanliness & superb location.This was my second visit have already recommended to friends & will use again i'm sure.

Only real issue is that it's so noisy! Very warm so had to leave window open and although I appreciate central London is noisy (I live in a city myself) it was quite difficult to sleep with that and the noise of the floorboards creaking! Second level window to reduce noise (I assume you couldn't have double glazing in that area) and some work on the floorboards would be great. But at that price I guess I can't argue! : )
Sr. Bruno M, August 2012: Great location
Mr Simon A, July 2012: To be honest, we didn't really have the time to use the facilities on offer, apart from sleeping in our room. The beds were really comfortable and the pillows/bedding too.
