I had stayed at this little hotel before the refurb and enjoyed doing so, so wondered what it would be like now. It has been transformed. My room was spotless, the bed comfortable, the air con controllable and working properly. There was a good hairdryer and a kettle etc to make tea. The TV was excellent and easy to use,... More

Small room Walk up with no elevator & no one to assist with luggage even though handicapped. Snotty front desk Location is close to the large train station Rather would have paid a higher price for a "real hotel" instead of a boarding house type of hotel

Some good points, but some negative ones with this one. Basically not really value for money. Each of the good points seem to be cancelled out by the negative ones. For example good location, but no parking, you have to drive to Euston or Kings Cross stations and then walk back. I was there on business trip, not the fault... More

Up the steps to reception. then across the road to the hotel, up more steps, battle with front door locking system, look for elevator. there is none. up 3 stories of cramped carpeted stairs. Everything is squeezed to the limit, claustrophobic, renovated in low class english hotel style, thin doors, cheap carpets. the room is minute. No furniture, just a... More

Very nice 4 adult room. Decent breakfast included. Walking distance to Euston station and Kings cross station. Also close to 3 tube stops. Our favorite hotel on our two week trip to the UK. The staff was very nice. Please do keep in mind that this is a city and you will have some noise. We stayed here in April... More

Lovely clean and modernly decorated hotel but the size of the room was disappointing. Nowhere to sit apart from the bed, and only the top of a bedside table as a surface to place cups etc. Window wouldn't open either and it was tucked around the side of the room so the felt a little claustrophobic. Couldn't fault the hospitality... More

For arguments sake its ok if what you want is a good location for Euston etc. The rooms are clean and done to a high standard. However, our room (lower ground) had its window jammed open, we were not able to shut it as there was some kind of safety lock, so I froze most the night. Breakfast was average,... More

Just a five minute walk from London Euston, this hotel couldn't have been more convenient. We arrived early and although our room wasn't ready, we were able to leave our luggage at The Judd Hotel just across the road without any problem at all. Staff were very friendly and went about their business with the utmost courtesy and efficiency. On... More

I stayed here last minute. I looked for the cheapest hotel close to Euston, where I could have my own bathroom in the room and this was it. Yes the room was tiny, but all I needed was a bed for the night. It was very clean, new bedding, lots of toiletries, breakfast was ok. And the receptionist was a... More
