We stayed one night in November. The hotel is very convenient, close to Finchley road underground and opposite a largish shopping centre with plenty of eating places like Pizza Express, Zizzi etc. We got a bed & breakfast deal at a reduced price. Breakfast was ok, not great. I wouldn't want to pay the full price for the room. The...

I spent 3 nights with my husband. Breakfast above average US HI Express. Located in front of a small shopping mall with a supermarket and several restaurants. About 1 block from metro station that takes you in about 15 minutes to central London.Rooms are small (average Europe). I would prefer a much central hotel for the next time.

I'm not a picky person when selecting a hotel for a night or two. When staying for 7 nights, I become a lot choosier. I had researched for a while before booking Holiday Inn Express Swiss Cottage. I had to factor in the zone based transportation costs of the London Tube for 3 people and weighed it against booking in...

The location was great, with a shopping centre across the road. The Tube station is a short walk away and is just a few stops away from central London. The room we stayed in was a little small but was enough for my family of 4 (with 2 older children). The breakfast was also good! Will definitely stay there again...
