Very good 8.0
Decent stay
Close to Russell Square tube station (5mins), the hall was very clean and nice, the room size was big (with a separate living room) and the facilities were all well-maintained, although some where a bit run down. If you expect a hotel, this might be a disappointment, but if you expect a student accommodation, this might live beyond your expectation. All in all, I was satisfied. Would be happy to visit again.

Fair 4.0
Grossly overpriced student accommodation.
I stay in this area frequently on business and this was the first time that I have stayed at Goodenough. The room advertised on the photographs did not in any way represent the room we were given. This should be graded as a hostel and not a hotel. There were dirty dishes in the apartment sink when we arrived, a stained and dirty kitchen floor, no bottled water and no television. Had this been a cheap hotel I could understand but even the most basic hotels in London have a television. These are simply student rooms that the college let to make money. The standard is contemptuous. As a student I would be very disappointed - as a hotel guest I was aghast. Please be honest about your offering rather than using photos for illustration that bear absolutely no resemblance to your rooms, raising expectations to a level that you are unable to meet. Cleanliness was questionable, in addition to the dirty, unchecked kitchen I had to remove a bug from the bed before sleeping. I could have cleaned myself if you had left cleaning materials in the apartment. There was no washing up liquid, cloth or tea towel. I cannot blame the previous guest for not washing their plates - there was nothing to do this with. This is a really disappointing venue. Staff did not ask if we had enjoyed our stay as we left. There are so many other places to stay in Bloomsbury that are better equipped and more reasonable, choose one of them instead. This is truly terrible.

Great stay in clean and comfortable accommodation
This accommodation was more than I expected from a college! My room was spotlessly clean, bedding and towels looked brand new, shower was excellent, bed was comfy - and there was even kettle and fridge in the room. This totally surpassed my expectations and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. It is also within walking distance of some of the theatres and the British Museum which is the added bonus.

Amazing place to stay
Wonderful place to stay and great value. I had a very large, light room with double bed, sofa, desk and a fridge. I was able to work and slept very well. The bed was on wheels and moved a little and the pillows were soft to my taste - those are my only, very minor, criticisms. Breakfast was great value, the staff through Goodenough College were friendly and helpful. I hope to return soon.

Good 6.0
Profoundly uncomfortable beds which do not have a mattress cover on (unhygienic). Room condition fine, but could use a lick of paint. Other halls of residence are cheaper with a better condition and location. Staff lovely.

Good Enough ;)
It was Good Enough ;) in all seriousness the accommodation is basic but clean and safe. Expect a clean student room and that's what you'll get

Quiet and clean Haven!
I love the peace and quiet, perfect for my business trip, the staff were great but due to my working hours I was not able to take advantage of breakfast, my only advice was that I was not fully aware that bathroom facilities were shared, but maybe I overlooked this upon booking.
