We arrived in London and went to the hotel on the underground from Heathrow airport We found the hotel easily as it is 200m from the station. The room was clean and perfectly adequate. The breakfast was really good and filled us up for most of the day! We had dinner there once and the food was very good. The... More

I am a fan of the HIE model. It provides everything I need while traveling. The Swiss Cottage version is exceptional for over delivering on everything the HIE brand promises to provide (I’ve stayed in HIE in three countries on two continents). This year was either the fifth or sixth two-week annual visit to London and the Swiss Cottage HIE.... More

My concern was that this hotel was a bit further out of the way than I'd like, but that really wasn't a problem. It's a short tube ride (maybe 15 minutes?) from the main tourist spots of the city, with the Finchley tube station only a few doors down from the hotel. There's a Sainsbury's and Waitrose across the street... More

My daughter and I booked this hotel for one night two weeks before we went. Excellent price, and breakfast was included. The receptionists greeted us with friendly smiles, and the hotel was perfectly situated very close to an underground station. The room was very clean, and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was a buffet style with a reasonable selection available,... More

As soon as you enter through the doors you are greeted by very friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is very well located for access to Luton and Stanstead airports with the bus stops being close to the hotel and for access to central London by bus or tube. Although on a major road the rear rooms are very quiet.... More

The hotel is a short walk from Finchley Road tube on Jubilee and Metropolitan lines, so perfect for tourists or anyone without a car. Parking is available and although expensive (£20 per day), this is pretty much the average for London. Reception staff are very pleasant and professional, rooms are reasonably sized with very comfortable beds. Free wi-fi is a... More

I stayed on three separate occasions in January at the Holiday Inn Swiss Cottage. On each occasion I was checked in by the lovely Alessandra on the front desk. Alessandra and her mate (cheerful Italian lady; sorry I didn’t get her name) were always so friendly and helpful and an absolute asset to this hotel. Same for Jacqueline in Sales,... More

Stayed at Swiss Cottage Sunday 19 April and felt at home the minute we walked through the door. All the staff were extremely helpful and courteous. The room was spotless and the WI Fi an added bonus for those that require it. The location is brilliant just a couple of minutes from the end of the M1 along the North... More
