The hotel is close to kings cross and st Pancras so ideal for tubes and trains, it's just a 5 minute walk. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a quadruple room, the beds were comfortable with clean bedding and towels. It's basic but for the price can't expect anything else. The room had tea and coffee... More

Room was small but clean. Close to the train station (Kings, St. Pancreas). Had a room facing the street and it was just too loud. Cars the whole night, sound isolation of the windows basically not existent. Would not stay again due to that or make sure you get a room facing the back. But I've had worse hotels in... More

We stayed at the Arriva last night for one night at £76. The location is absolutely ideal and the price lets you know what to expect. Our room was very clean, the beds were very comfortable and suited our needs. The en suite was clean and had plenty of fresh towels. The staff were friendly and very helpful with giving... More

+Warm welcome Good service Very close to the main train/subway station (St Pancras) Very close to a park with a basketball playground and other sport agrements. - Room/bathroom not so clean -Too much loud in the early morning. Too noisy if you want too sleep after 7am!

I passed there 4 nights from 21 to 25, of August 2014, the staff was ok, they advertise the hotel in a wrong way, they make you think that internet and other services are included int the price. When you get at the desk you realize the is not what you quote. We all agree that London is expensive. However... More

The room was very warm. When the window opened out it was a lot of noise. The room is small, but just enough to sleep. The bathroom is completely clean. 10 minutes walk from the British Museum. It is close to King's Cross station.

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in, back packers would turn their noses up. Dirty room, hotter than hell, noisy traffic, 'working' neighbours by the sounds of it. The shower was dribbling at best. Tiny and dirty. Dire is too good a word. Vastly overpriced for what could have doubled as a homeless shelter.

3 days stay in a TINY room for three people. The room was very noisy and it was extremely hot inside! The receptionists were kind, they avoided us to be charged for breakfast or for the last day luggage deposit, but it was the minimum after receiving such a treatment despite the reservation made several months in advance! The walls... More

It's not too bad to stay, if you're looking for just a place to sleep after sightseeing the city for two days. They offer breakfast for 2.50 pounds that seems for homeless. The room floor was dusty, I had to take several pills for alergy... the carpets maybe had months or years without cleaning. Too much car noise at night.... More
