Best Western London Highbury Reviews

Newly renovated hotel Mar 21, 2012
Best Western London Highbury is located in Finsbury, a 5 minutes walk from Manor House tube station and 7 minutes walk from Finsbury Park tube station and Finsbury Park Railways station. The hotel is right across the street from Finsbury Park, a large nice park also great for running. There is a playground there too if you bring children. If you arrive London at Heathrow airport, you can take Piccadilly line directly to the hotel. It takes 70 minutes.

I had booked a single room, which was ready when I arrived early. Since the room was facing the street I asked if I could have a room away from the noisy traffic. They did not have another single room, but that was no problem. They offered me a twin room instead if I could wait 30 minutes for it to get read. I accepted and was immediately offered a cup of tea. After having seen the single room, which was extremely tiny, I was very happy with the change. The reception was also the lounge and the bar. All of the staff was friendly and helpful.

The room I got had two comfortable single beds and all the things you would expect in a 3* hotel. WI-FI was free. If you don´t have your own laptop, there was a guest computer in the reception. I only missed a mini bar or a fridge. The room was just around the corner from the main street, so traffic was very noisy. Sleeping with the window open was impossible. Therefore it would have been nice with AC. The room was average clean, but the corners seemed to have been forgotten. For a recently renovated hotel I was surprised to see that the carpet was in need of a thorough cleaning.

The bathroom was nicely renovated with nice tiles and a new shower. It was very clean.

The restaurant was open for breakfast only. Breakfast was included in the room rate, but was very simple, ham, cheese, jam, cereal, fruit and bread. No options for those with any kind of food allergy.

Would I stay there again? Probably not. The staff was very nice and helpful, the hotel newly renovated and at £53 including breakfast there is nothing to complain about, but to me the noisy traffic became too much of an issue.

The traffic noise was really that bad - and even into the night too? I'm ok with a traffic busy hotel in the day, but not at night. But it depends on the hotel too - and sometimes it is comforting if not overly busy.
