Conveniently located near Finchley Road underground station. We had a room facing the main road but didn’t notice the noise from traffic. Bed & pillows very comfortable. Room decor & size adequate for our 2 day stay. Staff very friendly and effficient. I was grateful that I could leave my luggage after checking out at 6am till 10pm while I took a day trip to Paris. Another plus, to get to St Pancras station to board the Eurostar train to Paris is only four stops from Finchley Road. So convenient.

Stayed here one night in February. Staff are friendly, good service and room was fine for one night. It was a little stuffy though, adjusting the temp on the air con unit didn't help. The street outside is very busy and noisy - standard London! But it didn't affect us, we slept well after a long day travelling. I would return if i happen to be in that area again.

We stayed at the weekend hotel in January 2020. The hotel is located in the Swiss Cottage neighborhood, far from the center but close to the metro stations, the elite train and bus which allow you to reach the center in about 15-20 minutes. Shops, restaurants and a supermarket are nearby. The hotel is very clean, the staff is very kind and services and help with everything. The rooms are very functional, with no closet or drawers only with shelves and a place to hang clothes. The beds are comfortable and the bath has liquid soap and shampoo. Breakfast is reasonable and includes pastries, eggs, sausages, breads, cereals, hot and cold drinks and more. For some of our stay the subway line in our area did not work which made it difficult to get to the center but we found alternatives. Overall hotel recommended.

Hi menylIsrael, Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for posting a candid review.

This is not the frictionless experience that we wanted for all our guests and I will make sure to share your comments with our team for necessary improvements needed on our end. Thank you for your part in helping us go in a positive direction. Mike F. Case Manager IHGService
