In London for business at Wembly Stadium, this hotel was a nice choice in between the city and the stadium. The value was good for a small, comfortable hotel with some options for shopping and eating close by and across the street from the tube station. Breakfast, which is included was good, but internet, which was not included, was bad....

The hotel is in a good location, not too far from central london (within zone 2) with a tube station just minutes away on foot. The room was clean and functional, basically everything worked, though the tv was outdated. There is also a mall just opposite the hotel, with a supermarket and coffee etc so its quite convenient. The broadband...

Hotwire picked this one for me. A typical Holiday Inn Express, very acceptable and affordable. What I liked was the location: the very busy Finchley road is far from attractive in itself, but the Finchley Rd Jubilee tube stop is literally two minutes on foot. The Jubilee line is very efficient to get you into the Green Park central area,...

I recently stayed here on a Saturday night before the NFL game at Wembley Stadium, London. We had the whole weekend in London and used the hotel as a base for getting to and from Cental London and then Wembley on the Sunday. The hotel is in a nice central location only a few hundred metres from Finchley Road Underground...

I stayed on a business trip at this hotel and the room is basic but clean. Indeed the room can be noisy even if the window is double-glazed for the sensitive sleeper since it is located adjacent to a very busy road through North London. Staff is helpful and friendly. Express breakfast (self-service) was acceptable except staying there for 5...

This is my second and my friends third stay at this hotel and we both highly recommend it. I've already booked to return next month.  Myself and a friend stayed in room 406 (twin) for two nights.  Pros: Friendly, helpful staff.  Compact, but sensibly laid out twin room with walk-in shower, colour tube TV (BBC1/2, ITV, C4, 5).  Strong 3G...

I stayed in this hotel twice and the service went down. The room are spacious for London standards and clean. The staff however are not very professional.

Room was relatively spacey. However, the bed was not very comfortable and the sheets were not clean (and not changed). Location is good: 2 minute walk from Finchley Road tube station. There is a good Italian pizza place less than a minute away (no seating). Parking is expensive (£20/day) and had to be booked in advance. There is no free...

It was a great place, not so expensive, very close to the tube stations, between downtown and Wembley, where we attended a Muse Concert. In front of a shopping Mall with come food options. the people were nice at the hotel, except for a redhead guy in the front desk. Breakfast was actually very good. I recommend it.
