We stayed here for four days during our recent trip to London. As with any hotel there were good and bad. The staff was lovely, every one of them. Our room was basic but very large, there was four of us. The hotel could use some updating and be careful the stairways will get you, so small and narrow. They offered breakfeast at a fee which was nice. It was strangely right in the middle of a bunch of houses, this random hotel. We had a large lovely front window but I did think those who did not get a room for four would not have any window at all if you look at the set up of this hotel. No air, but there were fans in our room. The bathroom was a good size. We could always here the people above us as the floors creaked all the time. There was a bus stop and a tube station right up the street. If you went around the corner and down a bit there was a great little town with a pub that we enjoyed. The walk there was lovely too and it was through a great neighborhood. All in all this hotel is great if you do not need alot of fluff with your stay.
This is my third stay at this hotel. The proximity to central London make this hotel a good choice, within walking distance are local markets, subway and restaurants. Don't expect it in the style of a marriot - more of a boutique. If you're planning on renting a car and staying at this hotel be aware that parking is tight. To be fair the hotel offers 3 spaces (they say 4 but one is always obstructed: perhaps for employee parking) on a first come first serve.
A different but good location, quite near the Swiss Cottage tube station on the Jubilee Line, but on a quiet street. At two stops north of Baker Street, it's as easy to get to central London as from, say, Earl's Court. Adequate restaurants and services nearby on Finchley Road. My single room (and another I saw) were a little larger and more interesting than the minimal ones at some English hotels. Pleasant and helpful staff behind the desk. Only real drawbacks were a) the lift was broken all week and b) breakfast was not included, and was pricey for a buffet (more reasonable for an English breakfast). I got breakfast at the Dell'Aziz by the library (organic sort of place -- try the muesli and yogurt) and the Cafe Caesar on Finchley Road.
This hotel is in a nice residential neighborhood, and is several townhouses connected. It is a pretty building with nice decor. The owners have gone to a lot of trouble to personalize it. That said, the floors creak, the lift is broken, breakfast is not included, and yet it's a nice place. The staff is friendly and helpful. It is super close to Swiss Cottage tube station and bus lines-zone 2 just north of Regent's Park and a few minutes bus ride to Camden Lock. There is a 24-hour corner store across the main road, a M & S Simply Food nearby and a Waitrose a block up. There are a variety of restaurants nearby. Cafe Caesar serves breakfast at almost half the price of the hotel. McDonald's is across the road if you need a cheap burger. You'll have to go farther afield for the traditional "English Pub," but they aren't hard to find. The hotel is well decorated, but their mattresses leave much to be desired. The staff say a complete building overhaul is in the works. I've stayed at Hilton and Thistle hotels previously. They included breakfast, which is nice, and the beds were more comfortable, but if you want to save money, stay here. The other hotels were also more centrally located, but the tube and busses come so frequently that everything in London feels close from any zone 1 or 2 location.
room good size for London. Hotel is converted house in upscale area. Short walk to tube station. Would stay here again.
If you are looking for a fairly good value and a good place to stay while in London, look no further. The hotel is in a restored Victorian home with clean and nicely decorated rooms. The rooms are comfortable with modern amenities and a beautiful tiled bathroom. The staff seemed to be mostly migrant labor from eastern Europe so if you expect the English experience this is not your place. However, they were very helpful and this was not an issue for me. The hotel was only about a 200 feet from the Eton Avenue entrance of the Swiss Cottage tube station. This is on the Jubilee Line and connects very quickly to all parts of London by other lines. This is a hotel that I would recommend highly to the vacationer or business traveler alike.
