Our recent stay here was a treat. This is a low key, friendly, small hotel with a family atmosphere without being intrusive. The hotel is very well run and Lorenzo and his staff couldn't do more to help. The restaurant serves wonderful food in an area where good food is common. Prices are reasonable for London and I would recommend...

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights within the past two weeks. Made our reservation on line, very easily, requesting a double, quiet room. There was some miscommunication about having a car pick us up from Heathrow airport. I emailed back and forth with Lorenzo, the owner's son, and because I didn't know the terminal we were arriving...

I booked La Gaffe for just one night for my 80 year old mother and my 12 year old son; they wished it could have been longer. My older son has moved to Hampstead so I knew the location was perfect. We were expecting the room to be tiny as suggested on the website and in previous reviews, and although...

We stayed here for three nights in September and felt at home here. The lunch we ate was perfect and inexpensive. The welcome is very warm. The bedrooms are small, but how much time do you spend in a bedroom? And despite my fears of our room being noisy as it overlooked the road I slept very well

I stayed at La Gaffe for just one night. I wished it could have been longer. I used to live in Hampstead so I knew the location was perfect.

Spent a weekend in London and wanted to stay in Hampstead. I hadn't much choice since this is probably the only accomodation in Hampsted, anyway I wasn't disappointed. The position is perfect, 5 min walk from the tube and very close both to hampstead hill and hampstead heath. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The room was small but...

We spent five nights here recently. Location was great. On the Northern tube line so easy to get everywhere. However the rooms are very small and cramped. We also found the mattresses to be worn and killing on our backs. They do a basic clean of the rooms everyday but we did discover that the bed sheets are not changed...

Have stayed here several times. Friendly, helpful staff. Clean rooms. Much better than staying in the standard modern hotel. La Gaffe has character and a warm feeling. Great and convenient location and superb restaurant. GL and LL Sarasota, Florida, USA
