Very basic room, which was not thoroughly clean, There were coffee streaks on the wall and dust on the shelves. The ensuite was very small, a kind of portakabin wetroom, but it was clean and functional. Only one towel provided. The bedlinen did not small fresh though it seemed clean. No mattress cover on the mattress which also made me wonder about cleanliness. The wifi, whilst free, is via The Cloud which I found to be unreliable and at times non-functional, so it was difficult to watch Netflix or some other services on my iPad. The room was not serviced during my 3 night stay.
The main benefit to Goldsmid House is its convenient location, within walking distance of Victoria Station. There is a large, modern Sainsburys close by which is handy, plus lots of other restaurants and cafes etc. The 24 bus, outside Sainsburys, will take you to Westminster and Trafalgar Square in about 15 minutes or you could walk down Victoria Street.
I stayed at Princes Gardens a few weeks earlier which was of a much higher standard. However, Goldsmid House is a good option if you need to be near Victoria and don't mind the most basic of accommodation.More
