'Situated a minute away from Covent Garden and being the closest halls to LSE campus (5 minutes walk) means that you can be everywhere you want to be very quickly. Grosvenor House has a mature and independent feel to it. Most rooms are studios, with en suite bathrooms and kitchens, and we have a fantastic common room where we often meet over a game of table football or a movie. The list of places to eat is endless, with every choice satisfied in the local area.'
'The distinguishing feature of Grosvenor House is the independent nature of its residents, making it easy for everyone to balance their individual responsibilities. In my downtime, I also find it nice to be able to unwind in the newly renovated common room, where residents relax on bean bags, play table football or video games and chat on the couches.'
