After some research, I chose The Hide as the hotel for my parents to stay when they would visit me in London. They don't speak English very well at all, but they have been harassing me ever since to leave a positive review of the Hotel online, because they enjoyed their stay quite a lot. They have also since spoken to other friends who have visited London, and my parents experience was better than any one of their friends.
The one relative downside to this is location in relation to the city: Hendon is a bit out of the way. It has a local shopping mall which is quite nice (Brent Cross) but nothing much else going on. However connections to the city center are very good with the tube just a 2 minute walk form the door and the bus to marble arch stopping even closer to the hotel.
However if you arrive from Luton Airport, this Hotel is exactly between the Airport and the City, so it's rather convenient from that perspective.
The rooms were relatively small but beautifully decorated and very smartly set up so that it's easy yo to feel crammed. There is a small minibar with a few basic drinks - all of which are free and refilled every day. Same goes for the coffee/tea/hot chocolate in the room. Staff at the hotel were extraordinarily kind and helpful to my parents who, as I mentioned, don't speak English too well. They organized the cab to the airport bus (which is about a 2 minute ride from the hotel) and were generally helpful in giving directions (with hands and feet). The breakfast is very continental in style but delicious and has a good selection. Rooms and all facilities are very clean, orderly and everything appears to be very well taken care of.
All in all, highly recommended. The hotel is the one bit my parents look forward to the most when they come to visit again. There's a reason this is the highest ranked budget hotel in London, despite the location!
