Stayed here with my wife in April to take her on a theatre weekend for her 30th. Everything about the hotel was brilliant. A real plush and modern hotel in a fantastic location. It is only about two minutes' walk from Euston station and is on a large main road adjacent to other nice hotels. If you get a front... More

Minimalistic room and small bathroom, but totally adequate for a week long stay, well equiped, clean and with good noise isolation. The staff is very polite, helpful and proactive, offering explanations and services like bagagge keeping before you even have to ask. The location is nice, with most of London's attractions within a 15 to 20 minute walk (Camden Market,... More

I was a bit worried about what this hotel would be like after reading the reviews, especially about the sizes of the rooms. From what I had read I was expecting a tiny little box room, so I was pleasantly surprised! We booked a standard double room (standard being the smallest they have) and although I've probably stayed in slightly... More

This was in a great location in Bloomsbury, very short walk from the Euston train station. It appears to be recently remodeled, and as in many hotels now, one inserts the room key into a wall device to turn on the electricity. A nice move toward energy conservation, as one has to remove the key when leaving. The twin beds... More

Used this hotel as an overnight stay after a concert. Spotlessly clean room, large screen tv, safe in room, nicely air-conditioned, free wi-fi, no noise from traffic, ideally located close to tube stations. Bathroom was a wet-room style, again spotless, good powerful shower. Staff at reception were excellent, very friendly and welcoming, allowed me to put my bag somewhere safe... More

Like said before, the room was small. It looked clean except for the remote control which had dust and stains. There was no fridge in the room, can't remember the last time this happened to me in a city hotel. The service was cold. At check-in, they pre-authorized 50gbp on my CC which they forgot to unblock at check-out. When... More

Dear Hunter081 I would like to thank you for using our hotel during your stay in London. I have made housekeeping aware of your comments regarding the remote control to make sure it does not happen in the future. We only provide Mini bar style fridges in our deluxe or Ambassadors rooms. We authorize the credit cards of all guests... More

Used as an overnight stop before a Eurostar trip. Very handy for Kings Cross, St Pancras and Euston. Clean, comfortable, quiet, pleasant staff, easy bus trip or 25 min walk to Trafalgar Square. Excellent (and not too expensive for London) evening meal, good breakfast. Will use again when visiting London or taking an early train.

Perfect place for short stay. Room was small but clean with modern decor. Staff very friendly and polite - reception and a restaurant. Breakfast served quick ( a la carte, not a typical buffet - nice touch ). For dinner even better - restaurant is nothing like usual hotel restaurants - proper formal dinning. Everything reasonably priced.

Overall, my experience seems to be the opposite of other reviewers here, but I still find my stay rather pleasant and may consider staying here again for my next trip. Location: nice and quiet area between Euston and Bloomsbury. Wonderful access to buses, trains and tubes, which takes u to most areas of London with ease. Rooms: acceptable size according... More
