I am writing this review from my bedroom at the hotel. It is 12.30 am and I can not get a wink of sleep because of the awful noise of the traffic outside the window. I have checked several times to make sure the window is closed properly! I know I am going to be so tired in the morning...

I cannot fault this superb little Hotel. From checking in, we felt genuinely appreciated as guests. (Your customer service is exceptional ... well done) The room was lovely and clean with soft or firm pillows, dependent on your preference. Tea and coffee making ... fluffy towels. Breakfast was fine. I rarely eat breakfast so it's always a treat when we...

Very easy to get around London from this hotel. Close to the Finchley Road station and on bus routes. Great deal for bed and breakfast. Smaller room with shower only in bathroom. Welcoming staff who were helpful with directions, restaurant recommendations and calling us a cab.
