“A little Gem in London”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

Before my wife and I arrive, I had some unexpected issues/ concerns regards on my credit card back at home, well in the end, the hotel is able to accede my requests while successfully reserved my room. I could only said is the trust the hotel have in me. Arrived from Paris on 06 Feb 2012, it was around Mid-day. The receptionist and Ranjit (Manager) greeted us with a smile. Settled the check-in process quickly. Ranjit brought us to our room which is on the top floor (3rd level) located at the rear (Met my request again). He showed us where were the lights, how to access the tv, how to manipulate the AC remote, emphasizing to us the drinks in the mini fridge and the cookies/hot beverages are complimentary! Seriously, which hotel staff would bother to do that? Unless you are VIP or booked the most expensive suites etc. =)

Here the Score Board:
1) Service: Very Good. One of the bedside wall light bulbs burst which caused the electricity in my room to trip on one day. I made a call down, the lady (Black long hair) receptionist fixed it within 15mins. Then the next day, they replaced the faulty light bulb without my reminder.

2) Value: Worth it for 95 pounds per night which includes a simple fare breakfast. For breakfast, i would suggest the hotel could change its varieties of food on alternate days so it would not become repeative for guests who stay on a longer period terms.

3) Sleep Quality: Booked the room (no 24). Good choice for light sleeper. Bed and pillows were comfortable. But i could still heard a soft "trembling" sound of the large vehicles whenever it whizz past the hotel.

4) Cleaniness: Very Clean. Though there are some scratch marks left on the wall. Perhaps is caused by dragging lugguage.

5) Location: Its abit away from city centre London. 40mins to town. Which i guess is the only trade-off of this hotel. Personally, we are fine with it for the rate we are paying. 5mins walk to Hendon Central Tube station. Some Restaurants/ cafes, supermarket are just nearby.

6) Room: Room space and wardrobe are much larger than than the one we stayed in Paris. Haha. Likes the rain shower head, free drinks in the mini fridge, compliementary Free Wifi. The design of the toilet paper roll handle in the bathroom doesnt really serves its function. Too often, the toilet paper roll dropped off easily from the supporting handle when using it.

Overall. Its a wonderful choice for a little hotel in London. I would be back here again for sure. Thank you.

Room Tip: Rooms located on the top and rear are quieter. No lifts in the hotel. So if you bring many lugguages...

We stayed at The Hide for 6 nights in January. As other reviewers have identified The Hide is located only a short walk from Hendon Central underground station, which is an approx 30 minute ride into Liecester Square. On arrival (early in the morning, following an overnight flight), we recieved a warm and friendly welcome, and were very kindly offered a cup of tea and breakfast, before being able to check into our room early. We stayed in a classic room, which was a quiet room at the back of the hotel. The room was smallish in size, but very tastefully decorated, clean and modern, with a great shower. Breakfast is included in the price and includes a good range of options, served in a nice breakfast room. Overall, The Hide is a modern, boutique hotel with friendly staff and personal service at a very competitive price for London.

This hotel is in an excellent location on the edge of London. 5 minutes walk to Hendon Central station on the Northern Line so getting into central London is very easy. They also have onsite parking which makes life even easier. The hotel is not spectacular but gets all the basics right at a very good price for a London hotel. The bed was comfertable, the shower was excellent. We did not eat in the hotel so cannot comment on food. Really cant ask for more at this price in London, will definitely return.

Having stayed previously for 1 night in November, we returned in January for 4 nights.
I can only repeat my review from then, as fortunately nothing had changed. We also visited a nearby Italian restaurant that was recommended by The Hide. That was also very acceptable, reasonably priced, and saved having to travel into the city centre on our first night.
Review of The Hide as before: The location was less than a couple of minutes walk from Hendon Central Tube Station. Situated on a busy road, but not troubled by noise even with the window open at night (in a rear facing bedroom).
Very modern and clean with everything you could want. Great alternative to a central London hotel. Free parking as well.
Staff were all very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was continental but didn't miss the cooked variety as it included breads, cheeses, meats, smoked salmon, fruits, juices, yoghurts, cakes and pastries. Free soft drinks in room fridge.
Would definitely stay again.

I booked this hotel for my wife and me strictly on the merits of the reviews I read here. There were no unpleasant surprises and a couple of pleasant ones. First, the manager is very solicitous and seems genuinely concerned that everything during your stay meets your expectations. Second, it isn't really inconveniently located as some have implied. Including the very short walk to Hendon Central Underground station you can be in central London in 30 minutes which is just fine if you're not on a tight schedule for business dealings. Further, if you are flying into LHR from North America and have a travel pass or Oyster Card, the 90 minute tube ride isn't a big deal as you'll probably use up enough time that you'll have a roon ready when you get to the Hotel and you'll save a bundle.

Caveats? Well, the desk staff isn't real informed on what's where in the immediate area. If you search pubs, restaurants and such here you might want to print out a map as they haven't always heard of the place you're looking for. And, if nightlife is high on your list then this probably isn't the locale for you. But if after a long day out and about you only want to chill then the pub directly across the road (up the street, across, then down the other side) is just fine. It's food like an American sports bar but it's inexpensive and filling plus they have a cheap beer special. Even with a room facing the road there isn't much objectionable sound as it's mostly the white noise of traffic rushing by, not the stop and go plus honking horns of a city. We slept like logs.

Room Tip: The regular priced room was more than adequate. All we did was sleep in it so size and ammenities we...

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights in February last year as part of our honeymoon. We booked an Executive Double Room which was quite spacious and clean. The bedroom was very modern and furniture all new. The bathroom was massive with a beautiful walk through shower.

Service the service was exceptional. Staff were always ready to help with any queries we had. And they also organised chocolates for us as it was our honeymoon. A nice little touch.

Definitely value for money with free soft drinks in the minibar, wifi internet access and quality toiletries.

Location is good with shops, restaurants, a laundry mat and train station all in walking distance. The city centre is however about a 30 minute train ride out.

The breakfast is quiet good with a nice selection of continental foods. The breakfast room is a little small and come feel a little crowded at times.
