The front desk workers were friendly and always greeted us when we came back for the night. It is an easy 5 minute walk to the Finchley Road Underground station(closer than the Swiss Cottage station) There are some nice restaurants across the... More

Holiday inn Express Swiss cottage was adequate for our needs, it was clean and provided all the essesntials needed. The rooms are basic and the breakfast was pleasant. We Will probably spend a little more on a higher quality hotel next time however this is not in any way a reflection on this great 3*.

Stayed here a couple of weekends ago with my family. Rooms were a decent size, beds fine. There was not too much noise from outside. The staff were friendly and breakfast adequate. In terms of location its literally 2 minutes from Finchley Road tube and is conveniently opposite a small shopping centre with chain restaurants, cinema and a Sainsburys.

Stayed here overnight to go to the theatre. Arrived by train/tube so easy to access from that point of view. Staff friendly, room fine - not huge but perfectly adequate. Chose one towards the back to avoid busy road noise. Inclusive breakfast OK. Hot dishes are definitely not that thrilling! Its convenient locality and acceptable price would definitely make us...

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.
