This hotel is a good spot for travelers looking to spend a couple of nights in London. It's a couple of blocks away from Kings Cross and St. Pancras Intl Station which made it easy to get to and from London proper. Our triple room was small but manage to fit one double bed and a twin bed - I... More

In general very basic and cheap, so I would not expect more, however we found a vomit-stained bedspread, pillow case, headboard and walls. These were changed immediately on request. Shower is too tiny with no place to put soap, toilet bowl dislodged from floor and flushing water leaks when flushed. Not enough wall-fixed clothes hanger. No double-glazing. Bed/mattress NOT comfortable.... More

Pretty cheap in London city centre, less than 5 minutes to kings cross or Pancras Station. Wifi is OK. Decent breakfast. Room is small, but OK, clean and neat. The windows have only a single glass and so the room gets cold very soon. They charge GBP 5 to keep your luggage after check out which is the one I... More

Excellent location within walking distance of Kings Cross. It is located opposite a very pleasant park square so it is quiet and attractive. The reception staff were very friendly and approachable. The hotel was clean and pleasant. The room was also clean and well looked after, if a little small but it had everything you'd need for a one or... More

Stayed at this hotel due to it's location being very close to King's Cross station and tube. The hotel is basic and the rooms are small but it does what it says on the tin. Also have to bear in mind the price paid. Bedding was clean and plenty of hot water for a shower. One of the electric sockets... More

Stayed at this hotel as it was in close proximity to Kings Cross and Camden (15 mins walk to Koko). On arrival it was clear that this wasn't a decent hotel. The room was tiny and we had to walk up several flights of stairs (I'm disabled and found this very difficult). We'd booked a triple room and it was... More

Wasn't expecting much, and that was exactly what we got, not much. Steep narrow stairs, difficult to get cases up. Tiny rooms with hardly any standing room The ensuite was minute, You could sit on the toilet shave in the handbasin and wash your feet in the shower at the same time if you could find a plug for the...
