What a find!

SO Arch is in a visitor-friendly neighborhood with convenient markets and economical/quality restaurants. The tube and buses are close. The room was outstanding and the staff was great and the cost was very reasonable for London. We felt at home and hated to leave.

The Workers Café across Holloway St. serves good food at low cost. A small Italian restaurant a block away makes homemade cannolis that are huge and to die for. The owner is very friendly.

Very good stay.

From the moment we checked in to checking out, we found this hotel to be very good. It is situated in a very good position, very close to Archway tube station and very close to the main road with all the shops nearby that you would need for your stay. The quality of the room was exceptionally good, plenty of space for the price and very clean. I would highly recommend this place and would definitely visit again.

Crisp city holiday à deux

The hotel is located in very practical surrounding, there are the Archway tube station, grocery stores, banks, restaurants and pubs. The ride to the city centre takes about 15 mins- which is no problem at all, because if you travel to London you're going to use the underground all the time anyway- so get yourselves an Oyster Card. The hotel does not provide breakfast (but a small kitchen with microwave, toaster,electric kettle,sink, plates and cutlery), so you'll have to get something to eat in a nearby store. Our room was very clean and taken care off every day. @hotel manager: please add a proper table, to the room equipment- I mean there sure is enough space. And towels, a brush and more washing-up liquid would come in handy as well.

The Sitara Indian Jazz Restaurant is a great place to dine- merely a 5 minutes walk away from the hotel. They offer a wide range of delicious Punjabi meals, which are freshly cooked on order. Find out more:http://www.sitaraindianrestaurant.com/index.html

A great find!

I had a duplex apartment which in the details had a tv in the upstairs bedroom as well as in the living area, there was only one in the living area, and the details also said there was a hairdryer, there wasnt one at all, but otherwise, its a nice place to stay. The initial welcome on check-in was a little brusque, however after that and throughout the rest of my stay the staff on the front desk were very pleasant. The location is great, less than a five minute walk to Archway tube and with a couple of supermarketsand lots of fast food eateries all close by there are plenty of options for food. On the whole a great little place to stay.

Two supermarkets within a one minute walk away make self catering a real option and handy for any last minute purchases should you forget to take anything with you.

Perfect for a night in London

Great location and whilst the hotel is still not complete, the room we stayed in was fabulous. Free parking and a minute walk to the nearest tube( which wasn't working during our stay- but plenty of buses so ok) The room was beautifully clean and looked like we were the first to stay, could have done with a mirror in the main room and perhaps a kettle but other than that was fab!
