This is a nice hotel a bit off the beaten path in London. It's near Abbey Road studios, about a 20-minute tube ride from Picadilly Circus. The street it's on isn't particularly attractive, but our room was spacious, clean and comfortable.
A clean comfortable well run hotel if you want to be near Regents park. Restaurant and bar were disappointing and nearby pubs are a bit of a walk. The Expedia price was reasonable for London. the room was large for London.
"Nice hotel close to Kilburn High Road Overground "
We stayed at the Best Western Maitrise Hotel for two nights. On arrival there appeared to be a problem with the booking but the receptionist took my Expedia itinerary and contacted them directly re this. She managed to get us our room of choice however so that was good. We stayed in the recently refurbished part of the hotel which was very clean and quiet! Breakfast was continental but we knew that on booking this hotel and you could upgrade to a cooked breakfast for £7.95 more. Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in London who did not want to stay in the centre of London itself.
Excellent, helpful and pleasant staff all around. Very accommodating when we needed to make changes to the reservation. It is an excellent location with some wonderful restaurants near by. Rooms are on third floor with no lift. Could have used more little amenities, like kleenex and flannels (face clothes), but coffee in the room was excellent and a full English breakfast was included. The internet was a bit spotty but at least available. And the pub has been listed as the best in London! For sure!
"Brilliant sized apartments with a touch of class!"
These apartments are one of the best we have stayed at in terms of size, comfort, quality and location. Although not considered "central", it is a 5 minute walk from Kilburn Park underground station on the Bakerloo line which itself is just a few stops away from the city centre. There is a Starbucks 50 yards from the front door and a Tesco Express, Marks and Spencers and Morrisons all close by.
The Bannantynes Gym opposite is free for all residents of the apartments.
The staff are always happy, very courteous and offer plenty of help and advice. Anything we needed was dealt with very quick.
We stayed in a 1 bedroom executive apartment which has a king sized bed, a great sized lounge/kitchen open plan area and the bathroom is extremeley spacious.
Compared to other 4 /5 star hotels in the city this was in every was superior. You would be lucky to get a hotel room the size of the bedroom let alone the apartment, and it would no doubt be more expensive!
We will certainly be using Sanctum again and will recommend any visitors to London to use them as well.

Sanctum is ideally situated on the edge of Maida Vale just minutes away from Central London with excellent local transport …More
The hotel appeared to be under renovation as the main entrance was inaccessible. We had to go through a fire exit in a temporary-looking wooden partition. All a bit grim.
However, the chap on reception was very pleasant and friendly and showed us to our room. The room was basic but large (3 beds when only 2 were required).
Breakfast was a help yourself to toast and cereal affair.
As an inexpensive place to crash after day sightseeing it was absolutely fine. 10 min walk from Maida Vale tube, lots of little convenience stores nearby...it did the job.
The leafy residential districts of Maida Vale and St John’s Wood have an air of refined elegance, their broad avenues lined with smart mansion blocks and multi-million pound villas. St John's Wood is home to Lord's Cricket Ground and borders Regent's Park; Maida Vale is just two Tube stops from Paddington Station for fast trains to Heathrow Airport, Oxford, Bath and Bristol.
