Since 1962, La Gaffe has been opening its doors to locals and overseas visitors alike. We opened originally as a restaurant but, over the years, we have expanded to include both our guest accommodation and wine bar. We offer comfortable and competitively-priced rooms, as well as delicious Italian cuisine. Set in the heart of Hampstead Village, one of London’s most charming areas, both our award-winning hotel and restaurant are family-run. We are warm and hospitable with our emphasis on informality.

A small family hotel in Hampstead. A few minutes walk from the tube and not far from the heath. We enjoyed our stay. Staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. We were able to store luggage which was helpful. The rooms were “London small” and as to be be expected. Comfortable rooms that had all that you needed but you don’t get much for your money in London in the summer. A good spot to use as a base in London.

I love staying at La Gaffe it is everything you expect and more besides simply home from home. Lorenzo and Giuseppe are warm and welcoming also extremely professional. All the staff are always helpful and pleasant. The bedrooms are comfortable and serviced to a high standard. Breakfast served in the restaurant is charming and delicious. Eating there on an evening is a wonderful experience, beautiful food, excellent service, I can just sit and look around this fascinating restaurant. Hampstead is a lovely place to stay, I will be returning to La Gaffe soon, can't wait!

We have been looking forward to staying at La Gaffe for several months. We arrived today only to discover that I inadvertently booked on Hotels.com for the year 2020!!! And They were fully booked today so could not take us! Having arrived on an international flight with no sleep to learn I had no hotel (through my own oversight!) I was distraught, but the owner was soooooooooo incredibly kind and helpful. He welcomed me in to sit as long as it took to figure out a new plan, made me a delicious cappuccino, got on the phone with Expedia to help me get the refund- and was so gracious and helpful and kind. Any hotel with him at the helm is going to be excellent. It’s also a really charming place, you can tell there is a lot of pride of ownership. I am definitely going to try to stay there in the future. If I can figure out how to book properly!!!! ;) Thank you La Gaffe!!!

Thank you so much for your lovely, kind words. Very happy to help, especially after a long journey. I am so glad it did not take too long to find alternative accommodation and I hope you are having a lovely time. As I mentioned to you, you are not the first person to arrive only to discover they had booked the wrong day/month/year..... And you will not be the last. The lesson for all that may ready this is to please check your confirmations thoroughly. It is very easy to make a mistake in advance or when making multiple bookings Take care and I hope we can welcome you next time :)

We find this hotel for our wedding anniversary. We spent 3 days from 29th to 2nd July. My wife and me, we want to thanks all of them from deep of our hearts. Each member of the staff, has been friendly and very professional. We have in mind the courtesy of two young guys when we arrived. Then Giuseppe and the other one who prepare breakfast (sorry I don't know then name), both very helpful. When we left Italy we did not imagine to be at home once again. The atmosphere was exactely this: our home. By reading at spot all news around the hotel, we understood Stella's family contribute make this beautiful corner of the world better. The environment is small but pretty and much more comfortable, cleaned. Food is very good...everything perfect. The location is inside a beautiful area where around you have pubs, metro, market, restaurants, shops and other services. Once again thanks because our wedding anniversary, we''ll be in our memories forever. For sure if we'll come to England, we'll book this hotel.

I just enjoyed another perfect stay at La Gaffe. The location can't be beat-it's about 10 minutes by tube from central London in Hampstead. Hampstead is charming, and inviting, and away from the noise and crowds. But what makes La Gaffe special are the people who run it. The staff have been there for years and are there to make your visit the best. From the delicious food in the restaurant, to great conversation, and spotlessly clean rooms, you will be well looked after. It's no wonder so many of the guests are repeat visitors to La Gaffe. The restaurant serves fabulous food and I enjoy bringing friends to dine there whenever I visit. Lorenzo, I'd like to thank you and your entire staff for another perfect visit, and I'll see you soon.

We have been here for 57 years and nothing gives me more pleasure than seeing our guests having a wonderful time in London, in Hampstead and with us. We are very fortunate that we have so many wonderful guests, like you, that really get what we are about and make our jobs easy. It is always a pleasure to host lovely people from all over the world and to play a part in creating happy memories, be it for work or pleasure. Take care and we look forward to your return :)
