This is a great place to stay in a lovely, quiet tree lined street. The accommodation is very clean and the staff at reception are really helpful. I would certainly recommend this place to anyone staying in London on a budget, and who also doesn't mind having to travel into Central London.

Situated in a very quiet area just 5 mins on tube from central London. We have 3 children so often difficult to find suitable hotel rooms. Family room was spacious and slept all 5 of us very comfortably. Able to park car outside for free for whole trip. Centre was very clean and staff friendly. We would definitely visit again.... More

Great place to stay if you don't mind being a short bus ride from the centre of London. Basic but clean rooms, at a great price for this area. A Christian-run charity that serves its purpose really well.

I have been using the Highbury Centre for nearly five years, sometimes staying for up to ten days. I appreciate it for its location, friendly staff and very fair pricing. A lot of upgrading was achieved lately and prices have increased but it is still my favourite place, my almost-home in London. Love the communal breakfast tables facilitating early morning... More

This unpretentious yet well-equipped guesthouse is a fantastic resource for the weary traveller in one of the world's busiest cities. The unfailingly kind and helpful staff really go the second mile for their guests ensuring that everyone feels truly welcome; they are a credit to the Christian ethos of the Centre. I hadn't stayed here since the 1980s(!), and although... More

The Highbury Centre is quiet, convenient for public transport, and friendly. The cooked breakfast each day was wonderful and a good chance to speak with other guests, not as impersonal as a hotel. I stayed in a single room and it had a desk, a sink, hanging space - everything I needed. I stayed for just over 2 weeks in... More

We stayed here on a Saturday evening and were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful and quite the area was, being only a few minutes walk from Canonbury station. The centre itself is used for Christian conferences and has an air of quiet contemplation - although guests of any or no faith are welcome. We had a twin room without en-suite... More

We chose the Highbury because it is out of the busyness of London but within walking distance to the Highbury Islington tube and the bus stop. After a busy day of sightseeing this quiet neighborhood and friendly staff is just what we need. This is a B and B style hotel. Immaculate and fresh with lovely people to dine with... More

There is not a better option for lodging in London - especially if you are a minister. The accommodations are not extravagant, but they are exactly what you need. The atmosphere is warm and home-like. Their staff is very friendly ready to serve. The rooms and bathrooms are extremely clean. The neighborhood is quiet and feels safe. Transportation via the...
