Stayed 3 nights here. Room was adequate, bed comfortable and everywhere clean. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast fine, always served by friendly staff. The location is ideal being across the road to St Pancras railway station and the tube. There are plenty of eating places very close by.

I was very smart by reading reviews of this hotel before booking it. The pictures posted from travelers are not accurate, they were taken before the renovations. The hotel is not luxurious but it is not poor either. It's pretty comfortable and clean. I love the bathroom. The bed was amazing!!! Everything was new at the time I went. The... More

We had 2 nights here. Good location for public transport, restaurants and close to Covent garden. The room was small but adequate for a short stay. Bathroom tiny but clean but very poor hot water system meaning one case of scalded feet. Breakfast was very basic but enough for our needs. The stairs are a big problem especially if you... More

I guess this place survives by virtue of its location, but it is otherwise pretty dreadful. I'm not convinced that the sheets on my bed had been changed. The complete menu of the "continental breakfast" was: fried eggs, baked beans, and toast. Instant coffee (self-service). The baked beans were also half-cold... Looking at the positives, at least I don't ever... More

Stayed here for one night on business. £110 for the night (shocking!). Supposed to be a double room but v small double bed wedged against the wall on one side and a wardrobe on the other would have made for an uncomfortable night. My room was on the front in the basement with a large window just below street level... More
