Exceptional 10.0
Great stay!
Very clean and well-appointed rooms and facilities. Room had kitchen and washer/dryer. Yes, it has shared bathrooms. It’s not a big deal. Never had to wait for a bathroom, and they were always immaculately clean. The only negative about the property is that there’s no elevator, so if you’ve got a heavy suitcase, prepare for a workout. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Amazing location; food, activities, and transportation links are all around. I would definitely stay here again.

Neat and cosy
An amazing experience overall. The room was neat and kept clean on a daily basis throughout our 4 day stay. There are plenty of features in the room including free WiFi, HD Freeview, a washing machine/dryer, an induction stove with pots and plates of you want to self cater and a safe for valuable items. The staff were helpful and there's always someone at the help desk 24/7. I'll definitely recommend Swiss Cottage and would come back again.

Perfect for a few days
Excellent stay, well equipped & comfortable. Shared bathroom was always clean & didn’t seem to be occupied by anyone else. Staff very helpful. Narrow staircase with no lift so big, heavy luggage could be an issue

Looking for great value accommodation in London?
The room was functional and basic but very clean with everything you need if you want to avoid eating out expenses - kettle, toaster, microwave, oven, job, fridge, TV, pots and pans. Bathroom and shower not en suite but clean and no queues. Little bit of train noise because right next to Finchley Rd station but not a problem. I would be very happy to recommend this hotel, especially if you are looking for a great value, no frills/ self catering London stay.

Clean reliable London stay
We stayed on the top floor. Great little room tucked away from the main Street but also 2 flights of stairs from the nearest toilets. Not suitable for 6 foot or more persons. No lift. Very clean. Good value for London. No car park.
