The Aber Hotel
Ranked #689 of 1,072 Hotels in London
Reviewed July 28, 2011

I spent 2 nights at the Aber in November 2009, not November 2010 as noted.

I chose the location as it is very near friends. It's a small property in the English manner. I arrived late to a friendly greeting. My room on the 3rd floor was HUGE, with two beds placed at a diagonal from one another, a new flat-screen TV. The furnishings were simple but functional. The two things I disliked about the room were the fact there was no adequate reading-light, just an overhead light, and a very small bedside lamp that made it difficult to read. The bath was simple as well, with a stall shower and plenty of hot water. During the day the room was awash in light due to the large windows and high ceilings, even the bathroom had a window which was nice. The first night I got the distinct impression I was the only person there, which felt slightly creepy. But the next morning I awoke to the smell of toast and hushed conversation so apparently that wasn't the case. Was the Aber perfect? Nope. But it was undeniably a fantastic bargain. The staff I encountered were friendly. It was a little tatty but that was part of its appeal, really. I probably wouldn't make it my London hotel unless I was in the area, as you are certainly are not in the tourist center of London. But the leafy, quiet neighborhood and the quirky Aber was nice in its own way.

The staff at Aber hotel are accommodating and friendly. I really enjoyed my stay there. It located in a great quiet location in the heart of crouch end . The double room which I stayed in was clean and comfortable.
The choice for the continental breakfast in the morning was great.

I will definitely come back to the Aber Hotel when in Crouch end either for business or Leisure

Thankyou

Clean, quiet, small hotel close to Crouch End. No frills but v comfortable bed and uncomplicated continental breakfast
Shower and toilet en-suite a masterpiece of fitting quart into pint pot!
Will definitely stay again when visiting family nearby

Just stayed the one night. The bed in our Family room (there was just my wife and myself) was very lumpy, so slept most of the night in one of the single beds.We had to leave at 7am so missed breakfast which was served from 8am (no alternative was offered i.e continental left out for us) which was a shame as the restaurant looked nice being in a conservatory.

The Hotel was clean and in a nice area.... Sound insulation is not the best but for the money you pay this hotel is well worth it for a brief stay. I would return if in the area again...

A comfortable hotel in north London, close to Crouch End, Archway, Stroud Green and Finsbury Park. The hotel was clean and warm, and even though the rooms were a bit on the small side we had a comfortable stay. As most hotels in London, the noise of traffic, doors slamming and snoring neighbours were also present in this hotel. However I would recommend it for a short stay.
