This made Swiss Cottage so accessible both to and from the city centre but also to our clients in North London via the excellent network of tube, train and buses. The reception was warm and... More

Having been booked into some pretty grim in London places by my work, this hotel was a real pleasure. The location was fine for where I needed to be and the hotel is very close to both the tube and multiple bus routes. Check in was quick and efficient. All the staff were friendly and helpful. My room was spotless... More

This is a great hotel. The hotel is spotlessly clean and... More

Good inexpensive and excellent location. Close to Central London and walking distance to Finchley Road Station and the O2 centre. The rooms are comfortable very clean. Staff are friendly and the breakfast is decent. Ideal for business.

The staff at this hotel were incredibly helpful and welcoming and I can definitely agree with their recommendation for the Chinese restaurant across the road, which was superb if you like spicy food..

We stayed here for three nights - family of four in a double room with sofa bed for the children (9yrs & 6 yrs). Good sized room for London (we restored the bed to a sofa each morning to create more space ) with a perfectly serviceable ensuite shower and loo, tea and coffee making facilities and a good hairdryer....

Clean and easy to access plus a full hot and cold breakfast included in the price. However, the beds are cheap and not to comfortable and squeaked whenever anyone moved. Plus the... More
