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

Breakfast was included which was a good meal and had flexible hours. Extras like a hairdryer was available from reception. Location is perfect ; extremely close to restaurants, shops and bus/train stations. Staff at front desk were very friendly. Room and bathroom was neat and clean. There was no soap in the shower, which I found odd but we just... More

Also the themes link is only around the corner and the underground is situated 100 yards from the guest house. The breakfasts are ok nothing great but hey who... More

I've stayed at the Charlotte Guest House 3 times, in 3 different rooms - both en-suite and not. The rooms are wonderfully clean and inviting (even if not 'artistic' in decor as some commenters seem bothered about); the communal bathrooms are magnificently finished and scrupulously clean; the breakfasts are delicious; and the staff are fabulously warm and welcoming. They will... More

Was shocked to find that we were staying in a house 15 doors away from where we had booked into. In the morning we had to go back to the original building for breakfast with all our luggage before being able to clean teeth etc. no real coffee only instant and poached eggs that were hard. It felt like a... More

My parents stayed here 3 nights on the top floor (3 flights of stairs!). There was some clutter in the corridors as they were refurbishing (which the reception guy warned us about) but the room itself was clean, well sized with a sink and the shared bathroom was equally clean and in good condition. My parents said the vegetarian breakfast... More
