My husband and I stayed at the Jenkins in 2010, so when I was returning to London alone for 3 nights in August, I chose to head to familiar territory. I was pleased to see the hotel had been updated as it was pretty shabby in 2010. This time, although the rooms had been refurbished, the carpets were grubby and... More

Sorry, but I don't agree with any negative reviews. I stayed here with my hen party group at the end of July 2014. Upon arrival, you check in at the Judd hotel opposite which is no inconvenience. The room was clean and had everything we needed. We has a quad and a triple; the space was perfectly adequate for our... More

Very nice and quiet place, centric in London, but be aware there is a lot of stairs and no elevator. I had a room in 3d floor and I was happy my suitcase was light this time! By the other hand, the room was small but with all the necessary, a well the bathroom. Clean ad tidy.

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

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
