“Perfect guesthouse for a short stay in London”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

This guesthouse is situated in a Victorian terrace in a very quiet street - we had a room at the back of the house and we didn't hear a thing except for the occasional very faint aeroplane. It's easy to get to the Primrose guesthouse by public transport with a tube stop around the corner. Breakfast is very good and served in the small but comfy kitchen. Lekha, the owner, is very nice and can always point you to a good restaurant. There's also a folder on the room with tips for sightseeing around the guesthouse. The room is small, but that's to be expected in London.

Ein Hinweis für deutsche Besucher: Diese Unterkunft entspricht dem Standard britischer Unterkünfte - das Zimmer ist also klein, das Haus ist hellhöriger als man es aus Deutschland gewohnt ist, die Fenster sind nicht ganz dicht (aber deutlich dichter als bei vielen anderen britischen Unterkünften, die ich erlebt habe) und die Sanitärinstallation ist erwartungsgemäß nicht so doll. Damit muss man aber rechnen und wenn man damit gar nicht klarkommt, sollte man lieber nicht nach Großbritannien fahren.

I stayed 6 nights in this family-run guest-house in Belsize Park. Lekha could not have been kinder or more considerate, and she moved me to a top floor room at my request, where I was perfectly happy. It's a budget place so don't expect luxury, but you will be well taken care of. The area is lovely and the street is quiet and leafy. Good access to two underground stations and all the buses, shops etc of Haverstock Hill.

Room Tip: If you're staying for several nights, speak to Lekha and see what she can arrange for you.

I visited London on holiday this August and stayed at Primrose Guesthouse. It is reasonably priced and located in a safe and accessible area of Belsize park. Both the underground and bus stop are a few mins away, as are a number of shops and cafe's. Primrose is a family-run guesthouse and the owner Lekha is warm and hospitable.

I am a Travel Consultant based in Mumbai. I had been to London on a Cricket Tour with a group and we chanced upon staying at this beautiful place in Belsize Park.
The owner of this property happens to be an Indian origin person which made it easier for us to settle down quickly.
Every morning we were served really god breakfast as we had told them and were really happy with all there hard work.
If you are looking to stay near central London then this is one of the best options you can look into.
Piccadilly Circus is about only 15 mins Bus ride from Swiss Cottage Bus Station. Swiss Cottage is at a walking distance of 10 mins from there you can find buses, tubes and taxis easily.
Nearest Tube Station is Belsize Park which will take you to Green Park from there you can switch Tube Lines.
there are 2 Indian restaurants nearby where you can find really good Indian food. we enjoyed the food every time we went there.

Room Tip: The Apt consists of 6 rooms and all rooms are clean and neat

Three of us shared a cramped room and tiny bathroom in this three storey Victorian row house for three nights. Lekha who lives on the ground floor fed us her delicious, adequate breakfast and allowed us to do a load of laundry. Our bathroom had a big hole in the wall which was offputting. We felt that it was over priced for what it was in spite of the guest house's location.

There was a choice of having 2 bedrooms but in order to keep the cost down one room was chosen. A discount was also given. There was an additional room available at the time but it was not requested. Your comments on the decorations are noted and we hope to start renovations shortly.
