Husband and I stayed here last night and we were both very happy with the hotel. Staff very friendly, room clean and comfortable, Dove shampoo/conditioner dispenser in shower with a sign offering other free toiletries from reception if you forget your own. Lots of lighting options, air con, hairdryer and extra socket actually next to the mirror with a light above for us makeup wearers and a kettle that is already plugged in and working 🙌 So many hotels in this price range provide you with a kettle with the worlds shortest lead that you have to work out where you can safely plug it in. Breakfast options less than Travelodge or Premier Inn but very tasty and we both left feeling full, plus it’s included in the price of your room. Both very happy with this hotel and will certainly book again if we are looking for a hotel in this area of London. Well done!

Stayed here last night as closest IHG hotel to Hampstead Heath where we attended a concert. The staff were superb, they sorted my parking even though I had forgotten to book and they were helpful and friendly at all times. Security was tight so it gave a bit of assurance. Breakfast was good and not too busy. Room fairly standard for the Express group. Check in and checkout was fast and simple.

Poor Holiday Inn Express. Small rooms with worn out beds and unacceptable sofa beds that are no longer fit for purpose. Son had to sleep on floor. No sockets at bed. WiFi virtually non-existent. Breakfast of the worse English kind except for croissants. Small rooms with nearly no storage and windows that barely open, while a/c cannot be regulated without asking front desk. Friendly staff but that's all. Don't go

Situated a stone’s throw from Jubilee Line’s Finchley Road tube station, which had a fast line to get into central London. The front desk staff were always friendly and helpful. Every small problem that I had was attended to with patience Only regret was the hotel rooms did not have individual safes.

Beautifully presented cottage. We have been 3 times and it has everything we could want. Very relaxing after recent hospital visits. Breathtaking scenery and cosy. Gillian and Glen leave wonderful little touches everywhere. Jacqui patton

It is what it is, a holiday inn express situated on a main road into London, but perfectly functional for a one night stay. It was handy for the tube, 1 stop to Wembley which is why we chose it. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was small, old and smelled a bit of stale smoke even thought it was a non smoking room. The bed wasn’t comfy but it was all clean and the free WiFi worked well. The breakfast was great, plenty of choice, but busy as it was peak time and someone pinched our table when we got up for more coffee!

Nice hotel with very friendly stuff. Quite good breakfast, mayby fresh vegetables were missing but it's rather UK style not hotel oversight. Location is perfect, only 100 meters from underground and with National Express couch just in front.

This holiday inn is easily accessible by tube, but it’s not really in the city center. Room service is good Breakfast is good Wifi is fast But if you want to be close to the city center better go for another holiday inn

Holiday Inn London-Swiss Cottage is comfortable budget hotel. Breakfast was tasty. Staffs are helpful. Rooms are clean and well organised. There is parking outside of this hotel so it will be easy if you are waiting for taxi. There is bus station exactly outside of hotel and this buses goes direct near to tube station as well.

We stayed for 2 nights and the room was clean and comfy. The choice for breakfast was excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My only gripe is that the room was very hot, with no means of turning it down, except for opening the window. This was quite noisy as we were at the front of the building, on the main road. this didn't ruin our stay and i would stay again. few minutes walk to tube and opposite the O2 shopping centre with some good places to eat.
