Stayed here in a superior single room on a Saturday night in November. The hotel is very near St Pancras International, literally just across the road from the station. The room itself, like most others of similar rates in the vicinity, was rather small, but clean, and was good enough for a one night stay. It was unfortunately a bit... More

Nice hotel just a few minutes walk from St Pancras/King's Cross and also within walking distance from places like The British Museum, Oxford Street and Covent Garden. Small but functional and clean rooms offering a good night's sleep. In the morning you're served a full English breakfast in the small but tidy breakfast room. Staff was very friendly and helpful...

I have stayed at this hotel each time I visit London for a number of years now and have found it to be friendly and accomodating. It is spotlessly clean and they have recently refubisheded it. It is also a great central location, especially if you are travelling to and from Kings Cross.

Top points for its vicinity to the public transport (bus, metro, train). Cannot be any better. Clean room, spacious lobby. Will definitely return again. Breakfast area is cramp with only 4 tables, served by a grim dinner lady. However, she did her job well.

Apprehension was unfounded..room was small (as expected) but clean, comfy bed and warm, shared bathroom was ok felt a bit hostel like but was clean, shower was hot and no water pressure issues as others have mentioned. Quiet... More

Room and shower were small but clean and comfortable enough. Everything worked fine, rather new sanitary installations. WiFi connection even excellent! Friendly and helpful staff. Only minus: room very warm

Perhaps I didn't read the reviews correctly, but I thought this place was well ranked... The room is a tiny box. More Youth Hostel than hotel. I can only speak for room 15 - it's a small as can be, literally just enough room by the bed to turn around, on all sides. The shower room is the same -... More

My wife and I stayed for two nights The room rate was very reasonable considering the location. Buses, trains and underground just two minutes away. On arrival a helpful member of staff carried our bags to our room on the second floor. This was the only downside (no lift) The room was small but had twin beds, and was adequate.... More

Stayed overnight at this hotel. It is basic but very clean and was ideal for our stay. The breakfast was good and the staff were very helpful. The location is perfect and just across the road from Kings Cross. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighborhood Profile
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
