Family run small hotel. On a rather busy street (cross carefully) but with a room in the back you won't hear a thing. The main problem I had was the stuffiness of the room. I came at the end of a heatwave and even when the heat broke the room remained hot. I guess because even with an overhead fan... More

LaGaffe is a small inn and Italian restaurant nicely situated in Hampstead, well away from the tourist crush of central London. We stayed there several times in the past, going back to the late 90's, and recently returned early in June. We were delighted to find that LaGaffe has retained its special qualities. LaGaffe a wonderful place to stay, and... More

My wife and I visited England, Belgium and the Netherlands and August and September, 2014. We've been a bit busy since then and are just now catching up on posting reviews. We chose La Gaffe based primarily based on Trip Advisor reviews. The Hampstead location was ideal for us - close to the city but in a quieter, less hectic... More

This hotel was perfect for our recent trip to London. It was very close to a Tube station. They provided everything we needed, including a wonderful breakfast. Everything was exceptional! The restaurant was amazing with wonderful food, wine, dessert and the coffee was the best we had in the area.

I stayed at La Gaffe on two occasions in June. Both rooms were very well appointed and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious with a lot to choose from. The restaurant serves excellent dinners as well. Lorenzo and his staff were so helpful and go out of their way to help their guests in any way they can. Hampstead is a lovely,... More

La Gaffe is a family-run and owned small business in the heart of Hampstead (in my opinion, one of London's most wonderful neighbourhoods). So location-wise, you're already doing well. The place is owned and run by Lorenzo, who is incredibly helpful, and Giuseppe (his right hand man) will make you a great cappuccino. The rooms themselves are compact, but -... More

Lorenzo made us feel very welcome from the first minute upon arrival! Room's exceedingly comfortable and affordable. Very good value. Fantastic continental breakfast and the food that we ate was superb and made us wish we had eaten there for all our meals! Highly recommended!

Just returned from La Gaffe, which offers a very nice accomodation with good food in a lovely - not for mass tourism - part of London. Price was reasonable. Room nice and neat. Staff was extremely friendly and flexible. Hampstead Heath tube station is only within two-minutes walk (all that matters in London). The Heath itself within five. The whole... More

Small inn attached to an Italian restaurant! The rooms are clean with GIANT lovely bathrooms. The service is amazing with very nice owners and workers. I think the neighborhood is the best kept secret in London, Hampstead! The hotel is located close to the Tube stop and there are great restaurants all over the neighborhood including the one attached to... More
