Best Western Swiss Cottage Hotel3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I stayed there years ago (in 2009) with my family. The location is great, the area is safe and quiet, very close to the underground. the hotel, rooms and furniture are old and wornout. All London hotels are too expensive comparing to the service they offer, so it is also same for this hotel. But it is still a good option for a safe and convenient place to stay.
We stayed at this hotel in December 2017. We enjoyed the really well-sized room and the lovely breakfast that was served in a professional, friendly way. We were somewhat surprised by the sturdy welcome we received upon arrival. No welcome greeting, no smile, nothing of the kind. Logistically everything was in order, however we expected something a little different in the hospitality industry and a big player like Best Western. If you need to be in this area and are looking for a spacious room this is certainly a place to consider.
Great location, comfortable beds, large room, nice bathroom, would have scored higher if the shower was more powerful. This was our second time in this hotel and will definitely use it again in the future
I have been staying at this hotel regularly ( every 2 weeks at one point) over the past 3 years when I completed a 3 yr course. It's in a really good location, next to 2 theatres, near great street food stalls and mainstream shops as well as being a few mins away from the tube station. The staff are warm and friendly - especially Ian Jackman who really went out of his way to make sure my room/hotel service was first class. The breakfast is varied with a wide range of food and lots of it. The rooms have recently been updated and are clean and functional - free bottled water/ tea & coffee/ biscuits/ magazines/newspapers. Travelling as a lone female I was made to feel welcome and as if nothing was too much trouble. Rooms on the 2nd floor seem larger. If there is no water in the room, just ask the staff. The main lounge has a bar area and has a table with complimentary magazines.Highly recommend this hotel and the staff.
I've stayed at the Best Western Swiss Cottage several times and it remains my London hotel of choice. In a city where the average hotel room is tiny and rates are inflated, it offers superb value for money. As the reviews say, it's a fantastic location and the staff are great. It's worth paying that little bit more for a superior room: for £76 a night (pre-paid) I had a huge double room on the ground floor, with a beautiful floor-to-ceiling bay window which faced onto the street. It was clean and quiet, the bed was comfortable and on the coldest night of the year it stayed toasty warm. It's true the fixtures and fittings are perhaps rather tired but for me, it adds to the quirky old-world charm of the place; and if a modern refurbishment doubled the price, I'd rather it stayed as it was. More like a lovely old house than a chain hotel, and a real home-from-home in London.
perfect hotel in quiet location very close to underground ( 3 stops from centre ) , great breakfast , excellent value .rooms area little dated but clean and great staff . not much parking at hotel but a good secure car park 150 m away which we used
Handy for the tube, although this station is not handicapped accessible , buses etc and in walking distance of Regents Park . Plenty of eating places nearby and an interesting lesser known part of London .
very nice hotel, well located; friendly staff and very helpful; made my stay very enjoyable; very quiet area so close to the center of the city (4 stops to Bond street). Highly recommend this place for the feeling of being home so far from home!
I am staying at the hotel now. 2.5-3.0 at the best. The room lacks basic amenity such as the heater in the living room, which does not work. The cabinet door ajar. I have not tested the hot water yet. It was strange that house service constantly does room check but never realize the broken amenities. The room deco are back in the 60s with electric fittings showing bad workmanship
This isn't a boutique hotel experience, but it offers all the important stuff: clean and comfortable accommodation (with wifi and tea/coffee facility) and pleasant helpful staff. You're only a two minute walk from Swiss Cottage tube station (which is only a short journey to the city centre) and there's a good selection of eateries, convenience shops and a decent pub in the locality.
