I paid £240 for 4 nights in this hotel as I was needing somewhere for business purpose. It has free wi-fi yes, however the signal is often lost or very very slow after 6pm. I was in room 28 which is on the 1st floor. The lift is dirty and stunk of smoke, as did the hallways. My room was... More

Having stayed in cheaper accommodation around the King's Cross area a few times in the past, I was expecting nothing more than adequacy. This pleasant B&B was quite a surprise package, however. The staff were very polite and helpful, while the room was clean and spacious, complete with an extremely comfy bed. As for the morning after, I had been... More

I booked a double en suite room for one night, midweek. I booked just under two weeks in advance and paid around £90. The hotel was easy to get to (about a ten minute walk from Kings Cross Station). My room was very basic, the bathroom tired looking, and the shower situated over the toilet. This would have been fine... More

Long weekend in London from Thursday 16th - Saturday 18th January 2014. My birthday weekend with a girlfriend began with an easy 5 minute walk from Kings Cross to this lovely little hotel. Our main plans for the weekend were to take afternoon tea, visit the theatre and a few of the museums and attractions. With a check in time... More

Booked a double room and got three single beds,the beds weren't that comfortable but ok, the shower was good, the breakfast was alright but not what I expected so went else where. For a 2 star hotel it ain't bad but I would pay the extra money and stay in better hotel.

Yes, I heard the traffic in the morning but then I was staying in central London…… no moans from me. I wouldn't hesitate to... More

I stayed here for one night as cheap and close to work. The location, staff and breakfast were excellent. The decor is tired but very clean. The rooms have comfortable beds, clean linen, tv with decent channels and tea & coffee with biscuits! Would stay again.

I booked this hotel through an agency, namely Travel Stay, mainly because it bought the cost down, and reviews didn't seem to bad, and the pictures actually looked fair good. Boy I was wrong on all accounts. Firstly a "few" pro's - The hotel is a few minutes walk from Kings Cross station. - They supply a 24 hour desk... More
