This is a simple hotel in a very good location for St Pancras and King's Cross. Fairly priced and teh staff are very friendly and helpful. They aslo have single rooms at very reasonable prices - hard to get in London.

Stayed just one night. 2 minutes from Kingscross Station. Overlooking a pleasant and quiet green/play area. I received a friendly welcome from the man on the reception. My single room was clean, comfortable and had a sink, tele and tea making facilities. The shared showers and toilets were close by and were fine. The building is in a good decorative... More

Would recommend. We spent two nights here in March. Very convenient to King's Cross/St. Pancras. There are restaurants and even some shopping in the stations. The room we had (5) was tiny but clean. The double bed was small for the two of us - probably should have asked for 2 twins. We asked for a quiet room and got... More

I wanted to give it 3.5 out of 5 but I can't. The hotel is 2 or 3 minutes walk from Kings Cross/St Pancras, so ideal for a short stay. The check in is efficient and friendly. It is typical of many small hotels around London, and I got what I was expecting. The corridors and stairways are narrow, and... More

I would stay there again, but think there is room for improvement. The shower curtain was very rusty. Also, my room had a do not smoke sign, but the room had been smoked in for sure. After a minute or two it was not an issue. The breakfast was fine and the staff were glad to provide seconds. When people... More

I always choose this hotel when I'm in London. Location x price x cleanliness x breakfast - unbeatable. Rooms are small, but cozy and you have everything you need for few nights in London. Once we got room next to shared toilet. If you have a chance, try to change it. It's not very pleasant to hear someone's nature calling,... More

We decided to book at the Mac Donald hotel only after reading all the positive reviews on trip advisor. We believed it should merit a shot especially being owned by Maltese and as such wanted to give all our support and we couldn't be happier. Booking was made via e-mail since I could not find any available rooms for three... More

Wifi, location and clean are my general top needs and this place has them. Plus there's a kettle in the room, tv, and hot breakfast. Great value for money. My room room on the front was small, big enough for one and pretty quiet. I recommend the place.

Wonderful spot, clean and quiet. The rooms may be sparse but it really is a great value for your money. Savior, at the front desk, is friendly, hardworking and very helpful. A simple request of more towels or an extra pillow were met with a quick efficiency. The Wi Fi worked perfectly and never was an issue. Breakfast was simple... More
