For the amount we paid, this motel was a pretty good deal. My wife and I recently spent 4 nights here. To summarize:
-Location is in very nice Hampstead Heath neighborhood.
-Jubilee tube line, large grocery store, modern cinema, and launderette all within easy 5 min walk.
-Room was clean, with properly functioning fixtures in bathroom. (Shower was hot with good pressure)
-Predominantly foreign staff was friendly and accommodating. Language barriers were not an issue.
-Free continental breakfast was impressively good (as far as free continental breakfasts go) For 2 pounds extra you have the option to go with the full English breakfast.
-Lobby contains an updated bar with a plasma TV and decent Internet access.
-Late check-ins are allowed (But call to make sure)
-If you are a light sleeper, ask for a room that does not face the street. The traffic noise from Finchley road is excessive and relentless.
-Room windows pivot to be opened, revealing years of accumulated filth on the outside of the widow. Also there are permanently attached (and dirty) curtains, which cannot be opened. This means you must open the window to see out.
-Radiator emitted heat even when off...this forced us to sleep with the windows open, thus letting in the noise, cigarette smoke, and at times, a garbage smell from somewhere. This would be a tough place to stay during the summertime.
-Lobby and bar permanently reek of cigarette smoke.
-Elevator is antiquated and slooooooow.
-Beds are small, but comfortable. If you wish to sleep together, be prepared to push two small beds together (really not a big deal, though)
In hindsight, this is a good hotel to stay at for one or two nights. As I have seen and heard, there are many more hotels in London that are much, much worse than this one. In the end, the great location and good breakfast ultimately outweighed the negative aspects. I would consider staying here again for a shorter period, and with a few minor adjustments.
