Excellent ,clean hotel with friendly staff. Room at back of hotel pleasantly furnished and quiet. Good quality breakfast with sufficient choice, but not much room in the self service area where the food is. Hotel is well located, just a short walk from Finchley Road undergound station. A pleasant visit and would stay again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 front rooms on the first floor are too noisy
I have stayed in this hotel a number of times and generally it is good. But on this occasion i was put in a first floor room on the Finchley Road, front side. The road noise is just too noisy, I do not normally have any trouble sleeping and am a regular hotel user, and these front lower floor rooms are just not suitable. I urge the hotel owner to install better sound insulation as a basic fundamental requirement of an hotel bedroom is to be able to get to sleep!

clean room, good friendly service. I was disappointed on arrival to be informed there was no parking spaces as they had to be pre booked. As I was not informed of this I had to pay £35 to park at the shopping centre car park opposite.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fongerini Pretty Good
Had two pretty pleasant stays here recently. Rooms in the back are nice and quiet. Rooms toward the street are a little noisy. Had a room with a queen bed and a sofabed. The queen was very comfy, the sofabed was only fair. A/C worked well. Room size was adequate. Everything worked well. Staff was mostly very helpful and efficient. Nice breakfast of eggs + bacon or ham, pastries, toast, cereals, yogurt, juices, coffee, tea, apples, oranges. Free wifi, daily paper, limited parking in back. 1 blk from Finchley Rd Tube. Across the street from O2 Center. About 20 mins tube to West End.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by El88 Confortable room, good location, good value
Although not very big, the room is very confortable. We asked for a quiet room, and it was quiet indeed. The staff did respond to our requests. The hotel is well situated, very near a metro station.
One negative point: the self-service area for the breakfast is very small.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by juje great parking facilities, convenient for tube, breakfast excellent value
We stayed for 1 night in a family room, 3 adults 1 child. Excellent value for money. Room clean and spacious, good facilities ( hairdrier, tea and coffee, plenty of pillows). Sofa bed not as comfortable as a normal bed but perfectly adequate.Reserved parking meant that I didn't need to touch my car during the visit which was parked safely behind the hotel. Breakfast choice excellent and... even had SOYA MILK freely available.Literally a 1 min walk from the underground .Staff ex. friendly and helpful.Would definately stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Netsie Great week in London
My two daughters and I stayed in London for a week i July. We had a great time there, and I will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone planning a trip to London. And I will of course choose to stay there myself when I go back! The staff was friendly and helpful. When we asked for directions to various places, they looked it up on the computer and printed out information. When the shower drain was blocked, it was fixed the same day. The rooms and the rest of the hotel was clean. Breakfast had something for everyone. The only negative thing, was that the extra-bed was very uncomfortable.
As for location, it seemed like a safe neighbourhood and the tube station was just down the road from the hotel. A few stops, and we were right in the middle of Central London.
I hope I'm going back soon!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AndrewC66 Perfect stop-over for business or leisure
Great value, close to transport links for the City or West End. Easy access to Heathrow, via Paddington. Across the road from the O2 Centre and plenty of restaurant options. The hotel is comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobbyTrifle007 Parents Night Out
I bought tickets to see Atoms for Peace at the Roundhouse for one of my wife's 40th birthday gifts. We asked my parents to look after our son to make an early weekend of it. Planning started in earnest to make the weekend as cost effective as possible, we booked train tickets off peak, travel card for the tube which was the easy part. Looking for a hotel in London I thought would be extortionate, happily with all the search engines available we found Holiday Inn Express at Swiss Cottage. Walking distance from Finchley Road tube station and a good healthy walk to the Roundhouse that evening and a walk back to sober up a little. The staff that greeted us were smiley, helpful and professional, the facilities were clean and well laid out, our room was just what we needed nothing too cheap but not the Ritz, noise levels were minimal considering we were on a main road junction, the breakfast was good value for money but I think we should have got up earlier to make the best of it (our fault). All in all we loved our stay and will return to this very same hotel if we visit London again in the future.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Family Stay
We stayed in the hotel for a family break to London. On first opinion on arrival is a nice hotel. We were staying in a family room which had a fold down sofa bed for the kids aged 11 and 8. This was the only down side to our stay calling this a bed it would have been probably better for the kids to sleep on the floor for comfort. Apart from this I cant complain about the stay, staff and service was first class and good choice at breakfast. The hotel is situated 2 minute walk from the tube station. Also across from the hotel is a selection of restaurants and a cinema.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tired2222 Great staff, noisy bed
While the staff here was exceptional and the breakfast and wi-fi were appreciated, these factors were negated by a bizarre clicking in the headboard that was like enduring a water-dripping torture all night long. I tried putting a pillow over my head and it didn't help much. After a sleepless night, I was moved to another room with high hopes of a restful night. Alas, as soon as I turned off the lights, the clicking began in this headboard too. It may have something to do with the bulbs they are using. I can't believe no one has brought this to their attention before. It negatively impacted my ability to enjoy my time in London.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paleo1 Excellent value in London
This is a great choice for a family to stay in London. The tube station was less than a block away and the connections easy to just about any of the standard tourist destinations. We had 2 adults and 2 teenage sons in our small room--it was close, but comfortable. The bathroom was perfect and the AC worked great. The breakfast offered a great selection of standard fare every morning--cereal, scrambled eggs, yogurt, a meat, and a selection of breads/pastries. There's a great pizza take-away restaurant (wood fired!) a block away, so if you are yearning for Italian food, try them out. The wifi worked though you have to pay if you aren't enrolled in their frequent stay program. All told, this was an excellent choice for a family trip and we would return without any qualms! Good job Holiday Inn!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JW65 Good value but patchy quality
The room was adequate and though at the front of the hotel, we did not experience a problem with traffic noise at night, noted in some reviews read before our stay. Beds were firm and comfortable but we weren't able to get hot water in the shower.
The first morning's breakfast was a bun-fight: the area set aside for this is basically a large reception area which is not large enough when it's busy. People were perched at the bar eating breakfast and we were at a coffee table with plates on our laps.
One (not very well trained) receptionist was on duty the first night when we returned to the hotel and there was a mix-up with the drinks we ordered, which she tried to ignore.
Overall the service and experience were patchy, particularly compared to Holiday Inn Express hotels I've stayed at in the past, which have been very consistent and good

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KADGR Glad we had a room at the back
Trip Adviser reviews say to get a room at the back, we did on the top (6th ) floor and got great night's sleep, so glad it wasn't at the front over the busy road.
Great location for Wembley Stadium - 1 stop on the tube and not far from the city.
Easy to book in and check-out - great service. Decent breakfast without being OTT.
Handy for the tube (few hundred yards) and a shopping centre with a few restaurants (loads more along the road withing 5 minutes walking distance) and shops - check out Tiger, next to Habitat.
Overall a good hotel with good well trained staff and a comfortable and clean room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kerroy THE MOST EFFICIENT AND KIND, CARING STAFF WE HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED
Illness extended our stay from 2 to 25 nights in this excellent hotel.
With my partner in hospital with renal failure, I was under stress but the kindness, cooperation and genuine care by the wonderful team led by the General Manager Eleanor Cruz made the nightmare as bearable as possible. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
The Accessible room was excellent, spotlessly clean and when some basic extras were needed on the days when my partner had a brief respite from the hospital, extra towels, a chair - even flowers - were there instantly to help us. The breakfast is excellent - fresh and most acceptable. But it is the front desk staff's attitude that makes this hotel outstanding. They are a wonderful team and many 5* hotels would do well to emulate them. If there is an award for excellence in its field - I would give it to the General Manager and staff of the Express by Holiday Inn Swiss Cottage. Thank you for everything you did for us. We will never forget you.

After booking this hotel for one night, four ladies in one room. When we arrived the room was nice, small but cosy. One double bed and a sofa bed, by 2.30am the sofa bed was so uncomfortable, it dipped, metal poles in the base we had to call for extra quilts to fill in the holes!!! The breakfast was a nightmare, staff were rude, no cutlery and had to keep chasing people. Defo would not use again and could not believe we still had to pay !!!

This hotel is located very close to subway station and convenience to access to different places. Their staff is very kind and helpful whenever I had a question or need help.
Only cons I had was when you open the windows, street noise coming through since our room was street side.
Strongly recommend this place when you visit London.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Grace5K courteous front desk and kitchen staff
Staff are well trained and espoused excellent customer service values. Staff are willing to do what it takes to resolve issues and make a family's stay very pleasant.
The kitchen staff are the most hardworking we have ever seen: polite and quick, with a good eye for attention to details. They refill the food trays without any guest prompting. They are very personable and should be a model for all others in the chain. It is difficult to say which staff gave their best but Rachel at front desk was exceptional.
My family had a great time.
Thank you all for your dedicated service.

The Hotel is ideally located and Central to most things.
As the Hotel is right on the busy Finchley Road we experienced a lot of noise as our Room was at the front of the Hotel.
We were delighted at the care and attention the Staff extended to us and other people. A Lady called Hasina was absolutely exceptional and nothing was too much trouble for her - fantastic !!
WE would stay there again but would ask for a room at the rear of the Hotel
