The location is the best thing about this hotel - close to Euston, King's Cross and Russel Square. So, great for transport but also a nice area. The hotel is similar to most London hotels in this price range, no surprises (fitted carpets, small rooms etc). There are no lifts and the stairs (particularly to the top floors) are steep... More

I have stayed at the Mentone 3 times now as a single traveller. It is about 5 minutes walk from Euston Station and Russell Square, very well placed, overlooking a small gated park with tennis courts so a very quiet location. Twice I was in a single room, quite small but perfectly clean and warm with en-suite bathroom, TV and... More

We had a very pleasant stay. The room was a decent size and everthing was clean. Breakfast was and the staff friendly. The ony downside was that the bed wasn't all that comfortable. You could feel some of the springs and there was a bolt on the side of the bed where you could scrape your leg.

Perfect location close to Russell Square tube and easy walk from Kings Cross / St Pancras (10-15 minutes with luggage). Set in a charming crescent comprising a large selection of other b&b's overlooking gated gardens and tennis courts. Some here have commented on the size and/or layout of the b&b. I think we need to be fair and point out... More

Stayed here a few days ago, this being my second time in a few months. This time the room was a little more tired looking than the previous but on the plus side was much larger. I stayed in room 21 on the ground floor near to the front door and stairs to the kitchen. You could hear the door... More

Nice place, clean. As an American, the quarters were a little smaller than I was used to, but standard for London. Breakfast was good, though the breakfast room can get cramped at peak times. Very gracious housekeeping and cooking staff (loved them!). Certainly not the Ritz, but a nice place that's perfectly cozy.

This was a very good hotel for the overnight stay in London we needed. 10 mins max walk from euston station, therefore similar from kings x, the room was clean, good size, and overlooking the crescent garden tennis courts. Easy reach of local pubs, shops and general amenities. Good value, goos breakfast, nice staff. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks.

We managed to find this hotel at just 2 days notice after previous plans fell through. We had a quad room on the top floor, which was small but comfortable. The breakfast was decent. A 5 minute walk to Russell Square tube, and close to St. Pancras International. Would recommend.

For a cheap and cheerful hotel near Euston for for ladies this was perfect. Although it started of a bit shaky because we had been given the wrong room to check it, it was sorted out immediately and everything went upwards from there. Breakfast was lovely with a wide variety of cereals and fruits then your full English and even... More
