The Charlotte guest house is the perfect choice if you are going to London on a small budget. Beds are comfortable and the place is very clean. Bathrooms are newly renovated and very fresh looking. Breakfast is included in the price and makes for a very solid and tasty start to the day. Staff members are very friendly and helpful.... More

Our room was quite nice, I booked a private bathroom which was modern and comfortable. The staff is really kind and helpful. The hallway where you enter looks worn out, but the rooms are cosy and clean. The bed wasn't great and the breakfast was simple. But it wasn't expensive and the public transport was nearby, but I do recommend... More

This was my third visit to above establishment and once again I had a very enjoyable stay.The room at 165 Sumatra Road was quiet as it faced the road. When I stayed there in the summer of 2013 I was in a room that backed on to the St Pancras main line but the trains did not keep me awake.However,if... More

The receptionist was polite and was also a great help. The room I booked turned out to be down the road in another house but it wasn't a problem. The room itself had everything needed for two lads who just needed a bed to sleep on for our stay. I thought the shared bathroom would be a problem but we... More

The personel was very friendly, the breakfast was good but with not enough space, the location was good and close to metro station. I with my wife were very satisfied spending a full week at the Charlotte Guest Houses.

For somewhere near central London this is pretty good value for money. The staff are friendly and attentive and the included ample breakfast was fine in the nice little conservatory at the back of the main guesthouse. I guess the place is a bit rattly and old with no frills, and vibrates a bit when a train goes past on... More

Can only repeat what others have said really. It isn't flash but staff at reception are very helpful and friendly and the accommodation is clean and comfortable. West Hampstead is an expensive area - walk to Kilburn for better value restaurants would be my advice - but given the high/ridiculous prices to be found in this part of London -... More

The Charlotte is a pretty typical b+b--not too fancy, but clean and quiet, and a good bargain. My room had a really nice ensuite bathroom, and was well looked after every day. The b+b is just a couple of blocks from the West Hampstead tube station, with easy access on the Jubilee line to everything you'd want to do in... More

Stayed here to visit son who is in Uni. Very close to stations, staff were really friendly and welcoming. Breakfast lovely and staff were happy and gave great service. Consider this guest house for a comfortable, stress- free break at a great price.
