Room was disgusting - no bedside anything to even put the phone on for alarm. Bathroom was beyond filthy and freezing. The bedroom door lock was fragile and once I was in I was actually terrified to leave. First thing I did on getting to my room was look up laterooms.com to see if I could find ANYWHERE else to...

I have stayed in budget accommodation/hostels in the likes of Europe, Asia & Australia & have never come across something so bad - especially as it is meant to be a hotel!! The room was too small to actually fit me, my partner and our bags in the room. We changed rooms because of this but then missed out on... More

The location of this hotel for Kings Cross was great and the staff were helpful and friendly but the room which was sold as a triple was the size of a single room with a double and a single bed squeezed in, if it had been budget prices I wouldn't have minded but over £100 a night was not good....

This hotel is 2 minutes walk from Kings Cross. The room was small and in the basement so there was no window - there was a window in the bath room so we could get some fresh air. The room was spotless and the beds very comfortable. The en-suite bathroom was a decent size and there was plenty of hot... More

The worst hotel I have stayed in so far! would not consider booking again. only positive thing I can say about the hotel is the location, just across from station. Room stank felt the need to cover are noses!, the cushions and duvets had stains, could not wait to leave the hotel!

The room was so small the double bed was pressed against two walls- In other words- one person could not walk around the bed to get out of it. The A/C was too big for the room & it was very cold. There was hammering going on for improvements. I've stayed in bigger cruise ship rooms. The bathroom was clean... More
