This hotel is a little gem! It is not large, but it is very comfortable. A quick 5 minute walk will get you to the Finchley Road tube stop or the Finchley Road/Frognal overground station. From there you are only 10 - 15 minutes tube ride from Central London's main attractions. The staff is amazing and always willing to help....

The hotel is situated vis-a-vis a shopping center with a lot of late-night open restaurants and a cinema, at a large road with some heavy traffic. If you need to sleep with an open window you definitely need a room facing the back yard. There is 3 minutes walk to nearest underground and 20 minutes to almost any attraction in...

Great place. Pleasant and very clean room with all the necessary facilities. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful. The 'free' breakfast was perfectly adequate. I don't know why people sometimes moan about these places -all of the above for a family of 4 in London, 3 nights, £330 ish. Go for it.

Stayed here for two nights, lovely hotel! Nice rooms and staff are friendly! There is a overground&underground station near by! The only thing is the breakfast could be a bit better but other than that it's a good Hotel!

The rooms are small but so well designed and if you have forgotten any of your toiletries you can ring to reception for them. GOOD,...

I am writing this review from my bedroom at the hotel. It is 12.30 am and I can not get a wink of sleep because of the awful noise of the traffic outside the window. I have checked several times to make sure the window is closed properly! I know I am going to be so tired in the morning...

I cannot fault this superb little Hotel. From checking in, we felt genuinely appreciated as guests. (Your customer service is exceptional ... well done) The room was lovely and clean with soft or firm pillows, dependent on your preference. Tea and coffee making ... fluffy towels. Breakfast was fine. I rarely eat breakfast so it's always a treat when we...
