County Hotel is the cheapest of six Imperial Hotels in London, very conveniently situated near St Pancras, King's Cross and Euston stations, with plenty of buses nearby, and within easy walking distance to e.g. the British Library and Museum. Upper Woburn is extremely trafficky, but double rooms (not at all cramped) are situated at the rear. Uneven numbers giving on... More

Quite simple really - it's rubbish, and not even that cheap to justify the rubbishness. Very much a 1960s university hall of residents vibe. Stay in the yha around the corner on the euston road. MUCH nicer

OK the building itself is a little old with metal windows etc But for the price the room was very clean the linen and towels were very fresh. There is only 1 plug in the room so you mite need a multi adaptor to charge more than one piece of tech. Would use again. It looked like the shared bathrooms... More

Dont be fooled by the nice photos of the hotel as the rooms wont be like they are in the picture which is a shame as you can tell that this building was once a lovely hotel. Hints of art deco are visible inside and out, which appears to have missed the 'S' off its name -hoStel - not hotel.... More

Another OK hotel. Not particularly welcoming due to it's minimalist no-frills entrance. Reception staff nice and helpful, restaurant staff less so: surley and non communicative. The rooms are old and well used. I think it's clean but as most of the decor is so old and shabby it can be hard to tell. The bed was clean and comfortable. The... More

Had a one night stay at this hotel. The bed was so bad with hairs etc and I ended up sleeping on the floor. The water from the cold tap was warm. Thought the website was a bit misleading as it showed the bathrooms as though they were en-suite but they were actually shared bathroom/toilet facilities. Would not recommend.

Booked a 3 night business break at 'The County' on a recommendation from a colleague without realising none of the rooms were ensuite! There are 2 baths/showers & 2 WCs shared between 8 rooms. As I get older I've noticed the need to visit the loo during the night is much more common & it meant having to get some... More

This is more a student hovel than a hotel. The room we had was dire. The bed was lumpy, the furniture from a car boot sale, the TV was steam driven and never worked, and they have obviously never heard of wallpaper. Al in all it is a hotel past its sell by date and in desparate need of refurbishment.
