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

The hotel has had a makeover and is very nice. My room was a single with a shower room. All very new and clean. I climbed in to bed early as I had an early morning event for my work. Just as I was drifting off, boom! An massive, ginormous, gigantic air conditioning cooling unit in the yard started up!!... More

Cheap and cheerful. I was put in a lower ground room where a very loud and consistent buzzing from outside which I can only assume was an extractor system or generator. I tried to call reception, but it was constantly engaged. Wouldn't recommend.

Theatre trip and booked on line - good clean hotel , when you can get in they have a reception in neighbouring hotel Judd . Rooms are new and overall very good. Would go back again as very close to Covent garden . Nice restaurants bear by good choice.

I stayed here mid week, the location is excellent..only a few minutes walk away from Euston and Kings Cross. I was given a basement room which was ok but seemed very noisy, there was also a distinct lack of plugs (there was only one and I had to pull the beds out to get access to it). Breakfast was nice....

Great location for King's Cross and St Pancras, as well as a neighborhood with laundries, pubs, stores. Room fine, staff at desk excellent, breakfast good, but could use more variety (6 days, the choice was getting old. Will say, people saying this has small rooms, need to check the price the paid - rooms right for price. Avoid basement, just... More

Despite having seen bad reviews of the hotel, I was lured into booking it by being told that it had been entirely renovated recently. Despite being renovated, and despite the fact that affordable hotels in Bloomsbury tend to be bad, the hotel was a huge disappointment. My room was on the last floor, difficult to access. The hotel doesn't have... More

Thank you ‘IsadoraS’ for posting your review of our hotel. The hotel has been recently refurbished to a high standard as you point out. You were allocated a good size double bedroom on the third floor of the hotel. Unfortunately we do not have and therefore do not advertise one. We are not allowed to install a lift due to... More
