4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The room was big, clean, comfortable, with a cute view of typical English backyards. For a B&B I wasn't expecting all the furniture - nice big wardrobe, with hangers! The bathroom looked brand new and was always very clean, too. There are several typical English houses that make "Charlotte Guest House" - ours was just in front of the main... More

This guest house is in a great position for exploring London. When you first walk in it seems shabby, needing a lick of paint but our room was very clean with a fabulous new bathroom. The rooms are small but what can you expect for £49 bed and breakfast for two. this place represents really good value for money with... More

Location is great if you accept you aren't staying in the city centre. Easily reachable by train or tube, and located in a nice area. Staff was very friendly and hospitable. Although it was Margaretha's first day, she made us feel right at home and was very welcoming. Breakfast was decent. Only the music played at the breakfast would have... More

I've visited two more times here since my last review. I honestly don't know where some of the other reviewers stayed at - it definitely wasn't the Charlotte Guest House. I've stayed in several different rooms and they are always scrupulously clean, and well stocked (it's amazing how cheap some B&B owners can be with simple things like loo roll,... More

clean sheets, good breakfast and nice staff, that's all you can expect. Rooms are terrible, not clean and the guesthouse is outdated. The rooms are not clean and the furniture is very old and worn out. Time to renovate.

We have stayed several times now and love it. Easy access from the M1 and parking available a few streets away (It is quite a walk so I always check in, leave luggage and family and go park up for 2 or 3 days - you only need to pay for parking between 12pm-2pm Monday to Friday which is a... More

I visit London regularly for work and this has become my preferred stopover. Not over-priced, friendly staff, good for travel to Central London (tube, bus and overground). Very pleasant breakfast/dining room, outside terrace good on warm sunny mornings. Right in the centre of West Hampstead near restaurants, bars & shops. Be ready for: There are actually a few guest houses... More

As I promised the manager, here is my feedback on the Charlotte Guest House in West Hampstead, London which I will NEVER EVER stay in again or recommend to anyone. In fact I'll recommend to all my friends to avoid it. In Summary: Not as Described, Not Quiet, Sweaty Smelly Beds and Pillows - No pillow and mattress protectors -... More
