Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jams76 Smelliest toilet ever!
This room was at best average but the worst part was the horrible stench in the bathroom. The overpowering urine smell which spilled out into the room and made it unbearable to be in the room was by far the worst part of our stay. When we were checking out we asked the front desk guy if he would call us a taxi. He wouldn't. He looked at me like I'd asked him the most ridiculous favour. As well, what is the deal with the 1 hour free wifi a day. The least you could do is offer complimentary wifi with the room. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 If you are a Platinum Member don't expect beter
I stay one night at this hotel. If I compare with holiday inn express in USA this hotel is the badest one. Room very small and the meciliniance was poor. Room very clean but suitable for one. If you platinum member at IHG you will receive nothing no upgrade, no newspaper, no bottel of water, no late chick out and no welcoming you as you excepect. Breakfast was good. No variety but I think it's good start. Closer to hotel you will find 3 large supermarkets.
The best thing that the hotel well connected to tube and bus station the nearst tube is the finchley road station with one menut walk and the bus stop on front of the hotel. Staff very polit and helpfully. Hotel is very small hotel. It has one par only. The receptionist informed me that she try to hold amount from my credit card before I arrived which not good because I arrived the hotel at 3pm and I can cancel the reservation without penalties till 4 pm. I didn't like her action and I think this is not acceptable issue.
Swiss cottage is very calm eria so you can expect to do nothing. There are many restaurants close to the hotel such as Dominos pizza, piza Expres, KFC and McDonald.
The nearst center is O2 opsit the hotel. There are many massage centers but I didn't use it. Nearst cinema is Odeon cinema also there is a library and theater.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Auditor17 A brilliant renovation - excellent value
Spent three nights in early May. Had a room at the back of the hotel and it was clean and quiet. Only minus point is that there is very little storage place - just a short rail for hanging jacket and trousers, no drawers and no safe. Just about fine for a short stay.
The staff and services provided were very good indeed. The breakfast, included in the price, is adequate. However, the hotel was full and finding a table required some patience. The buffet breakfast area is rather small and has no surfaces on which to put the tray, all a precarious balance. On the other hand, just across the road, at the O2 centre you can have a proper cooked breakfast for around 6 pounds without the hassle.
The front desk arranged a minicab for us to go to Victoria and this proved to be very good in quality and price. Have every intention to stay at the HIE Swiss Cottage in future visits.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Baffo60 Staff amicable and helpful, room clean, convenient location
The hotel is located very conveniently close to eating courts and to public transport, only minutes away from Central London. Tthe staff is very nice, professional, helpful and cheerful. The room not big but it was clean and well furnished for a short stay. My only remark would regard the food offered for breakfast: large choice buffet but not excellent quality. Scramble eggs nedd improvement!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Excellent reception staff and location
I stayed with my family (1 child) in a family room in April. The reception staff were excellent and friendly and my son was delighted to speak to one of them in Hungarian (a bonus for him!). The breakfast choices were varied and the quality of food was also very good. Coffee average :o)
If you are a light sleeper it is worth asking for a room away from facing the Finchley Rd as it will be noisy (this is London after all).
Excellent Bus and Tube links right outside the door and also the coach drop off from Luton is outside the door if required.
Draught beer prices at the bar are reasonable for a hotel.
Would certainly stay again.
