Excellent hotel + restaurant in charming Hampstead
This small and quaint hotel in the lovely area of Hampstead is an excellent alternative to the large chain hotels. It is only 5 minutes walk plus 20 minutes underground ride to the center of London (e.g., Leicester Square). The structure is old, but everything is very clean and well-maintained. Its Italian restaurant is excellent (note that well over 50% of restaurants in London are "Italian" but very few are authentic), and the staff is extremely cooperative. The only negative is that rooms are rather small.
