“Great location, perfect for our needs +friendly staff”
Reviewed 19 March 2014 via mobile

What a pleasant surprise we had !
You'd be wrong to expect just another cookie-cutter, part-of-a-chain hotel experience here.
The staff are lovely !
The place itself is standard issue HI so you know it'll be reasonable but we found everything to our liking.
The location is excellent. You exit Swiss Cottage tube, turn left, walk 300-400 Meters, cross at the traffic lights and you're at the front door. Rest assured, you will see the hotel on the other side of the road within 60 seconds of leaving the tube station.

Stayed March 2014, travelled with family

Stayed here overnight while visiting our son who lives close by, the hotel exceeded my expectations in all aspects. Friendly and efficient staff, clean and comfortable room and lovely breakfast. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Good hotel near an Underground station around 10 minutes from the center. Friendly stuff, very clean, good value for money, Rooms OK for 3 adults, not very noisy although my room was facing the road, breakfast not sth spectacular. The surrounding area hasn't many pubs or restaurants, on the other hand a large shopping center with a supermarket just opposite.

Good service, good neighbourhood, tube and bus almost at your door. We stayed for 4 days with two kids. Small rooms but it covered our needs. Not the best breakfast, but nothing more than expected. Free wifi.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the parking lot are probaly less noisy.

We have stayed in this hotel well over a hundred times in the past 3 years and we have never experienced any problem.
The parking directly outside at the rear of the hotel is very useful for us sometimes too.
Despite London being full of 5-star hotels which offer more central locations, we always use this HIE because of it's tremendous value for money and the tube station is only a 2 min walk away.
Rooms on the side facing Finchley Road can be somewhat noisy throughout the night, so if you want a quieter one, ask for a room at the rear.
We can only thoroughly recommend this place!

Room Tip: Rear of hotel is quieter, away from Finchley Road

Stayed in this hotel with daughter for annual trip to London and were greeted by friendly and informative staff. Had a quiet room on first floor at back of hotel and slept very well. Rooms were very clean and had all you needed for a comfortable stay. Breakfast kept you going until tea time! Bus stop right outside as was tube station and felt very safe in this area. Getting to and fro Paddington was easy as was getting to theatre land. Would stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Rooms at back of hotel were very quiet

The room was a little bit noisy (towards Finchley road), but large enough for 3 people. The bathroom quite spacious also. The breakfast was over average for a "cheap" London Hotel (english and continental)
The hotel offered free and fast WLAN in spite of the description, that announced very expensive access only.
parking place was not cheap, but cheaper than penalty charges.

Room Tip: Rooms on the rear side are quieter. Come early for breakfast. Self service room is quite small
