Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express London-Swiss Cottage
What a change for the good
My friends and I moved here from another hotel and were glad to see good sized, clean, comfortable rooms. It was such a change from the other hotel. The breakfast was self service (included)continental but you had the choice of rolls, bread, cereals and fruit. There were plenty of other cafes and bars to eat in within walking distance, especially the O2 centre (6 eating areas plus cinema). The only down side was the hotel had only parking for 7 cars but had a deal with the O2 car park of £10.00 per day if you left the car. There were adequate tube and bus service from finchley road bringing you right into central london.
Staff were very friendly and it had plenty of information on local attractions and theatres in london.
Yes I would stay here again.
Would definitely return here - clean, good size rooms, good service, value breakfast. Tried lots of 'budget' hotels in London. This cost a little more but is the first I would definitely return to.
This hotel is great-- very close to the tube-- the bus line is right in front of the hotel, and there is a nice mall right across the street. For those on a budget, the mall across the street has a HUGE grocery store on the lower level next to Starbucks and the budget minded can find snacks and sandwiches at decent prices there. The hotel is in a nice area of London on Finchley road... although it would be nice to stay in central London, the price for this hotel far outweighs the downtown prices. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the room and the daily maid service kept things in nice order. There aren't any amenities in the room but they can be requested from the front desk. The bathroom has a very unique door that gives you either full reign of the bathroom for privacy, or you can close the door off to just the toilet if you share with others in your room. I highly recommend this hotel for just about anyone looking for a budget hotel!
It's what you've come to expect...
This is one of the newer holiday inn expresses - opened earlier in 2005. The rooms are clean and the bathroom's also clean, neat and tidy. The staff here are actually friendly too which can make a change for some london 'budget' hotels. It's also very well located, right oppostie the 02 Centre which comprises mainly of restaurants such as Pizza Hut, Nando's, Starbucks, China Red and a Whetherspoons pub. There's also the Vue Cinema too. But hotel wise, this really is a fine and perfectly adequate place to stay - further strengthening the Holiday Inn Express Brand.
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on Finchley Road for a week in late October. We paid about 70GBP a night, including continental breakfast.
We stayed at this hotel on the Finchley Road for one night as it was close to the Hampstead Theatre. The rooms are cleverly designed to include everything that you need for one night (or a few nights) and include air conditioning - which is pretty good at £79.50 per night in London.
For those who don't know about the HI Express chain, then you are not getting a 5 star hotel with all the trimmings. Thankfully though you don't pay those kind of prices. This hotel is everything you should expect from a hotel and represents excellent value for money for anyone staying in London.
I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights with my boyfriend. It was extremely clean and modern and the rooms were a good size for london standards. Normally when we go to London we stay more central but the tube station is a 5min walk and its only about 3/4 stops away from central london which was great! Another big plus is the area around the hotel-right opposite is the O2 shopping centre which has a cinema and restaurants...perfect if you dont feel like going into central london in the evenings. Also the area around the hotel was great i felt really safe walking around at night. The only downside is the staff. They were friendly but all the questions we asked we were given wrong answers too! Also are room was cleaned even though we had a do not disturb sign up. Overall though, I think this is definitly good value-booked through the holiday inn website and got it for £67 per nite-Enjoy your trip!
We are a couple with two children, ages 11 and 7. The hotel is very close to the Finchley Rd. underground station, and we were happy with this very new hotel, well-located and extremely well kept-up. The facilities and linens are sparkling, though the room is somewhat small. The breakfast is abundant and great for kids. I would unhesitatingly recommend the hotel for family visits.
Perfect hotel for visiting London!

The hotel just recently opened. It's clean and very well priced for London. The breakfast was perfect for the start of the day. The hotel management was more than accomodating. The Holiday Inn Express web site has pictures of the rooms/hotel. It took us 5 to 15 minutes by the tube to different locations in central London. The tube station is just down the street and there is a mall directly across the street. We felt very safe at all times walking from the tube to the hotel. The hotel is 45 minutes from Heathrow by taxi and the hotel provided us with a taxi company for less than I would have had to pay at the the airport. Would definetly stay in this hotel again on our next visit to London.
Enjoy your stay in London
