Staff were even friendlier than last year.. Same great room, big, clean, quite, easy breakfast. Free 1-hour wifi per day in the lounge to start your day.. TV system was being upgraded so channels were limited but no big deal.. See you next year!

I had a great five nigh stay at the HI Express - Swiss Cottage with my family in June 2012. This is a modern building, which is a real plus in London. The hotel is down the block from the Finchley Rd underground station on the Jubilee Line, which allows easy access to all locations in London and train stations...

Hotel is excellently located, best value for money. Hotel stuff is very courteous and friendly. Breakfast is very good and promptly filled whenever needed. Both the tube and overground stations are a few minutes away. Good bus connections too. Room was clean, sofa bed was comfortable (regular bed was too) and was quite. We had a very good vacation in...

We stayed in this hotel from June 11 to 17, 2012. The room (502) was clean and very good, it faced the parking lot in the back of the hotel and it was very quiet. We had a lot of space because we somehow got a "family room" with a double bed and a couch, so it wasn't clogged at...

Clean, modern, good breakfast included. Great location - underground is located just down the street and good bus links. Few mins in underground (Finchley) takes you right into the city ctr. Bus to stanstead airport goes from just across the street. There is AC in the rooms which can be adjusted to your own suiting and window also opens.

I stayed at HI Express-Swiss Cottage with family for a week on a family trip to London. I should admit that the room we were assigned was smaller than I expected but it was very clean and recently decorated. Tv, wifi, and the lighting system in the room were all perfect. The bathroom, in particular the power shower was great....

We are a family of four and recently spent 3 nights here. We were pleased beyond our expectations. It is a great location, close to the underground and within zone 2. There is a small convenience store very close by. The room was clean and very quiet. We were a bit cramped with the futon open, but we knew that...

The hotel has very friendly staff and the check-in process was fast. The hotel is great for family. The family room a bit small but comfortable. Travelled with two kids and they love the breakfast even it was simple but very generous. Free one hour of wifi daily (at lobby) and a free daily paper of my choice. The hotel...

Slightly expensive, but considering Olympics this year, I recommend that anyone having to work in London on business (like myself) tries to remote work as much as possible. Very near Tube station. Clean rooms and polite staff.

This hotel is my default choice in London , mainly becuae of price and proximity to the Jubilee. When I asked about Wifi ( normaly travel with laptop but not this time) they mention Ed they have wired Internet in rooms. Which obviously not good for tablets and smart phone. This should be standard!

Thank Hareliko
