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

Just heading home from 2 nights in London. Have stayed at several hotels, B&Bs with mixed results. The Highbury Centre was excellent. In a quiet private street, 2 stops on the tube from Euston Station then a ten minute walk. Very clean (recently refurbished?) facilities. Breakfast included in the price. Quiet, lovely lounges (2). Showers and toilet areas immaculate. Will... More

This is not a plush place to stay, but is a well run, clean and friendly place for people to set out from as they take in all London has to offer. The room was basic, roomy and had an en-suite setup. The breakfasts is buffet style - eggs, bacon and hash browns, toast cereals and some fruit. The Tube... More

I needed a simple, economic place to stay in London while visiting friends. This was perfect - immaculately clean and tidy. Very welcoming. Breakfast was excellent - was a little too structured being "made" to sit on specific tables but I understand you are trying to use space well. Will definitely come again if I need a couple of nights... More

My family thoroughly enjoyed our time spent at the Highbury. Our room was clean, the bathrooms were nice, and the breakfast was great! Our kids enjoyed going up and down the stairs just checking out the many rooms. The lounge is comfortable. We were traveling back home, after being on the missions' field, and The Highbury Centre was a comfortable... More

We stayed here for 12 nights with 2 adults and 2 kids. Good location (close to buses, Tube, and lovely park), well kept rooms, and helpful staff. Overall very happy and was good value. Family room had 2 singles rather than a double bed, plus bunks for the kids. Bit on the small side for a family also, with bathroom... More
