The hotel is in a fantastic location and great for the price. It's a minutes walk from the closest entry to kings cross station which is very ideal to travel anywhere in London. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. Hotel is clean, secure and warm but has basic amenities - for the price it's what you would expect.... More

This was my second stay at MacDonald Hotel. A friend and I had spent 4 nights there in December 2010 upon a friend's suggestion. I booked again with my mother, as we couldn't find the same affordable quality in London. The location is great, close to King's Cross and St Pancras International, near the British Library and at walking distance... More

I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in London w/o needing a suite. The hotel is close to King's Cross/St. Pankras so the city is easily accessible. And with the Piccadilly you have direct connection to Heathrow. The rooms are not for being lived in but to rest and sleep. The proprietor is extremely friendly and helpful.

We used McDonald Hotel the night before taking Eurostar as it is really close to St Pancras. We had selected it as it seemed on other reviews to be the best mix of low price and OK hotel. We can confirm it was indeed this. We had helpful reception staff and the room was shabby but clean and comfortable. It... More

This is a budget hotel & in London so although it was £65 per room a night this is good value for the Capital. 3* anywhere else. The chap on the reception was very welcoming. We had room 305 on the top floor overlooking the park, the room was not a bad size, basic, no draw space & a sink,... More

All in all, I would give this hotel a miss. While not everything at MacDonald Hotel sucks, on average it is well below average at highly inflated prices. What MacDonald Hotel has going for it is a great location. Located a mere 5 minute walk from Kings Cross / St. Pancreas stations, you'd be hard pressed to find a more... More

What a load of belly ache. Of all the bad reviews we have had this one must take the prize as best whinger. After reading your review several times I could not see how any of your comments could substantiate such a sensation grabbing headline. I completely disagree that we are astronomically priced. London is expensive but also very competitive.... More

The room was awesome cozy, with a good bathroom, had a tv and wifi connection. It was also very clean (the whole hotel was), and towels changed everyday. Breakfast was good. the location was perfect just a two minute walk from the Kings Cross underground and St Pancrass International Rail station that made it easy for us that went to... More

Stayed here for a short weekend trip with a friend and we were both quite impressed with the place considering the extremely reasonable price. We stayed in the triple room with a bunk bed and were happy to find that the room was clean, comfortable, quiet, and contained all the necessary amenities for our stay. Very nice basic little hotel,... More

The position of this B&B is excellent, you are close to everything: King's Cross and St Pancras stations, supermarkets as well and also a lot of pubs and fast food. So you can reach buses or take the Underground to join in few minutes almost every principal attraction of the town. The place in front of the hotel is quiet... More
