Booked a double room totally impromptu. Few hours till our arrival. The corridors and 'reception' didn't look good. I thought it's going to be a really poor place but even though the room was small it was nice and cosy. Nice interior. Very comfy bed. I was surprised there were no sockets above the table where kettle was on though... More

On reading the reviews I feared the worst. We booked at fairly short notice and availability in this area was severely limited, so choice was non existent. First of all don't be fooled by the address. The front entrance is not in Leigh Street but in Marchmont Street. Misleading. Good points about this hotel were the proximity to Euston and... More

My firm's agency - Redfern - booked me in here for three nights. I had to wait at the door for 10 minutes before someone arrived to let me in and I had an immediate sinking feeling as he scrabbled around in a little wooden hutch. My feeling got worse when he said I would have to hand my electronic... More

For what we paid (£68 for private bathroom double including full English Breakfast in the very centre of London) this place was great. Extremely comfy bed, TV with freeview, great shower, easy check in, secure, cosy room, clean, well cooked and extensive breakfast (lots of coffee, juice, cereal, toast, full English). Good maps of London available and within walking distance... More

I had a business trip to London for 3 days and booked this hotel because of this near location to our office. The price seemed to be ok for the advertised 3 stars hotel. But what 3 stars? I wouldn't rank it even 1 star. The guy seating there as a receptionist all the time was eating and that awful... More

Well, by far the tiniest hotel room I have ever stayed. Very cozy and wonderful bed. About 10 minutes walk to Russell Square tube station. Nothing much to say or write about the hotel except that it is good for a night or two but since it is at the heart of London city, it is highly over-priced, without much... More

Leigh House is a small hotel, on a quiet street, 5 minutes walking distance from King's Cross St. Pancras stations, offering a very reasonable lodging option 10 minutes from Central London. What more can you ask for? Personally, I loved it. I stayed in room 7, which was great for one person, with a full size bed and private en... More

Rooms are small but nice and clean and well decorated. Shower room clean but shower not very hot. Short walk away from euston station. No area to meet up in. More guest house than hotel but good value for money.
