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...

If you spend a lot of your holiday in a hotel room or need an office away from the office, this isn't the place. If you are one of these people who get out there and do things, only using your room to sleep in, then this IS the place! I couldn't be happier to not be paying for a... More

I stayed here on a business trip to London in a front facing en-suite room for one night. The room was basic but very clean. There's no TV, just a bed and a bible. Luckily I had some things to read for work and I had my phone with me for the internet. The wifi didn't work in my room... More
