Located near Finchley Road tube station of Jubilee line, giving easy and fast access to city centre. The service in the hotel is very friendly, helpful and supporting. Definitely a place recommended for a city trip.

We paid £50 for one night B & B.. If you deduct the £16 Travelodge would charge for breakfast (as breakfast is free here), then that makes it £17 each for a night in a London Hotel - An Absolute Bargain. The room was spotless, as was the whole hotel.. Christina was extremely helpful and checked us in early so...

Too small room for family of 4. Shower drains slowly. Extractor fan not working. Bedside lighting to weak. Big carpet stain in room 307. Sofa bed uncomfortable. My daughter did not want to sleep in it so I did. Expensive night because close to london city centre. Breakfast included. Car park tiny allows about 5 cars. Charge £20 a day.

Location: I arrived at Luton airport, and the national express second stop was right in front of the hotel, also the metro line (jubilee grey line) is only a 5 min walk away and has great connections, shopping center with lots of food choices is also across the road. The national express back to Luton comes every twenty minutes (I...

Recently stayed at the hotel due to business. I had a good stay whilst I was here, the room was quiet, the bed was comfy and the hotel as a whole was extremely clean. The Bar and restaurant are reasonably priced. The only things stopping me from giving a 5 star review was the shower pressure was quite weak and...

Just finished up a stay at this stay property. This was my second, first time being 3 years ago. I really enjoyed my stay here. Room was good size with one double bed and a sofa. Customer service was excellent. The only minor downside is that people have to buzz in if they don't have a room key to be...

The price of the room was way above what it should have been. The hotel is very old and needs lots of refurbishing. The sheets and towels were clean or we wouldn't have stayed, but the towels were as thin as kleenix. The heater was extremely noisy, mostly because it was old, so sleep was difficult, as it was cold...

The tube, supermarket, dry cleaning shop and O2 Center are close to the hotel and make it attractive place. This is a good place to stay if you're on a budget limitations or your destination is close to the hotel's location, otherwise I'd recommend to stay closer to the city center. Try to ask for a room with windows facing...
