Thank you for your unhelpful review. Elmwood hotel is published as bed & breakfast hotel and we never mentioned that this is a star rated or promise our clients that they will have a room in the Ritz hotel. you get what you are paying for if you are paying a £40 for a double room with breakfast then you...

We stayed here at the begining of our trip, the room was a decent size for the amount of time we spent in it. It was a minute walk from Kings Cross tube station, the staff were really friendly and helpful and there were some old style english pubs placed around it which were good for a feed and a... More

We had a 4 bedded room that was adequate in size with an en-suite shower.The room was clean and tidy, although the curtains had seen better... More

Good location near Kings Cross. Hotel was clean and basic facilities i didnt like the basement room we were in though, very small ,if i stay again which i probably would, id ask for a room higher up, breakfast continental, would have prefferred full english, overall good value for money (double room) for London.

We booked a family room for 6 knowing that it would be a small crowded room and we were sadly correct. With baggages in tow it was almost impossible to move in between the 4 beds. Breakfast was adequate and filling. Nothing special. The main advantage was it was just a short 5 minute walk to the Kings Cross terminal.... More

I booked this for an overnight stay as pics looked good. Was a clean hotel but room was tiny. Was like being in a shoebox. The bathroom was even cramped and the shower was not that good. Location is very good though, v nr to Kings Cross. Free wifi was a plus. Breakfast was average.
