I picked this hotel because I was visiting London for a few days to see friends who live within walking distance. I was please with my choice, the rooms are clean & safe, the breakfast suffices and it's pretty good value for money. Nothing fancy but somewhere modern & clean to sleep & keep your stuff.

I had to travel to London on business second week of January 2012 and needed to stay at a decent, reasonably priced hotel in a central location. Being a Holiday Inn Priority Club member, I first researched Holiday Inn locations in or close to Central London. I finally settled on the Holiday Inn Express, Swiss Cottage. I must say the...

We spent 3 nights in this hotel and had a great time. We were a family of four (2 Adults and 2 Teenagers) and found the room a little small but we spent very little time in the room. There is coffee\tea making facilities in the room and no problem getting more coffee\sugar\milk if needed. Rooms were clean, staff were...

Booked last minute, we had a great deal which included breakfast and a family room with two young children. The hotel was ideal as it was a stone's throw away from the tube station (so not long to walk in the dark with two kids) and only a short tube journey to the centre. Room was a family room and...

This is my second trip, having stayed here in Sep. Again the excellent location was enormously helpful, and its proximity to the FInchley road Underground station and the Finchley and Frognal overland station provided plenty of travel and connection options to practically anywhere in London. Room was modern and clean, with a large double bed and a sofa which could...

Myself, wife, mother in law and 1 year old stayed here for 1 night at end of Nov 11. This was mainly for tea at the Ritz which worked out to be about 20 mins away all told. The hotel is reasonably family friendly with good lift space. It's 5 min walk away from the tube. Hotel is in very...

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 The room was clean and functional, basically everything worked, though the tv was outdated.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...
