We stayed three nights. We used the bus from luton airport which stops outside the hotel- quick cheap and convenient especially if booked in advance. The rooms are clean, the staff are friendly and helpful. Transport links are good- what more do you need? If you bring back food- supermarket or takeaway they are happy for you to eat in...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 21 November 2016

This is the third HIEX I've used in London, the others being Canning Town and Greenwich. All three have been good but this is the best location for sight seeing. It's within zone 2 on the underground and only 2 minutes walk from Finchley Road tube station. Jubilee or Metropolitan lines take you straight into central London. Going the other...

The hotel is well located, just a 3 minute walk from Finchley Road Underground station and a half minute walk to the bus stop, so getting to anywhere in London is a breeze.

Good location near Finchley Road tube station, in between the West End and Hampstead. Very friendly and helpful staff, efficient check-in and check-out process. Clean, but not very large room. The window did not open, forcing me to run the air continuously. Slow wifi/internet. One of the better HI Express hotels in my experience.

The first thing you will notice is that the staff are very friendly and since I have been there about 5 times now they recognize my face. It is a typical budget Holiday Inn hotel, if you have been to any of them then you're in a carbon copy. Comfy bed, bathroom with a door that doubles as the toilet...

We stayed two nights, staff very welcoming, breakfast much better than I expected - very nice mini croissants, and good quality sausages (it's bacon one day, sausage the next). Tea and coffee fixings in the room, and more milk etc was available from reception. The second night we were moved into a room on the second floor overlooking the back...

What stood out at this Holiday Inn what’s the quality of service from the staff who were always friendly and efficient. The room itself was clean but unremarkable with very functional furniture. The breakfast room was rather small and got quite crowded on a weekend morning. All in all, a clean, reasonably priced and well-run hotel centrally located to transportation...

I know that Finchley Road is busy but the double glazing was not adequate to shut out traffic noise.

This hotel is a little gem! It is not large, but it is very comfortable. A quick 5 minute walk will get you to the Finchley Road tube stop or the Finchley Road/Frognal overground station.
