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

But the worst thing was when I arrived the man on reception told me... More

We have just returned from this hotel having spent 3 days in London. The hotel is in a fantastic position being close to all the transport links. In a small square with similar hotels. 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

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.

All the hotels around this area have very small rooms, some better than others, we stayed in two others, this was the worst. If you like to know what a sardine feels like then stay here. They charge for leaving your cases, and for using the room safe extra to your room costs. The breakfast room is extremely small. I... More

Room was very small with broken floor boards and very uncomfortable beds. As for breakfast, well that was absolutely awful...don't expect much it's certainly not a full English. In a convenient location but apart from that I would avoid!
