I was travelling alone on business and needed a relatively cheap room, near Camden, King's Cross and Euston to make travelling between appointments quick and easy. This was a great find with the best rate secured via booking.com and I was very pleasantly surprised how nice it was. The welcome was warm and checking in quick and easy. My single... More

a basic but very friendly hotel. Reasonable rate. Very quiet, and spotlessly clean. I needed a place to stay around Kings cross and this was perfect. The breakfast eas good. They looked after my luggage.It is a family run hotel. I would go back there rather than to a faceless chain.

Stayed for a night as I was attending a conference. The hotel was perfectly located, minutes from the station down a pleasant, quiet street. The room was spotlessly clean, nicely laid out and perfectly adequate. The breakfast was very good. I usually use one of the larger, functional chain hotels but this was actually nicer and cheaper.

We had booked a room for 2 for a night. The only reason we picked the place was because of its proximity to kings cross. A day before check in they inform us that they've "upgraded" us to the luxury service apartments with a king size bed. We show up and they tell us the apartments are a good 10... More
