We stayed here for two nights and have no complaints. We understood from the start that this was a pedestrian sort of small hotel. The room was small and the bathroom was very small, but it was clean and the bed was crisp and comfortable. Breakfast was very nice and the staff were great. The day we checked out they... More

Stopped here for 1 night. It is in a great location, and an easy 30 minute walk to Covent Garden and close to Euston and St Pancras. It is also very good value for money for London and includes breakfast which is very good, although a little rushed and in quite a small room in the basement. The rooms are... More

Hotel is in perfect location for our needs close to StPancras trainstation and to British library. We stayed at two rooms, first 3 nights at the top floor - about 50 steps, nice view, a bit small room for 3, but was OK. The other room was on ground floor and rather nice and OK as well. Full English breakfast... More

Booked a twin room and got one double bed and a camp bed! Bathroom tiny and shower was like standing under a dripping tap it was that useless. Room on top floor with very steep stairs which were difficult with a suitcase. Good location though

Fortunately I am not claustrophobic and fortunately I staid only one night. The junior single room was extremely small, as well as the toilet/shower area; I could hear noise from other rooms, including tap's dripping (all night long); also, the carpet has been there too long. I can't tell about the other rooms. The location of the hotel is very... More

Located in a silent oasis near Kings cross underground, this small compact hotel gave great value for money. Be prepared to climb steep and narrow stairs to upper floors. Nice room. Good breakfast. And friendly staff.

Friendly helpful staff make all the difference. Check in was swift and accurate and as easy as it should be, the room was up only one flight of stairs as requested and was clean tidy well appointed and very close to Euston Station. The room was a family room with two double beds, albeit a bit on the small side,... More

Was looking for a hotel close to Euston Station for work, saw this online and was reasonably priced so booked. Really easy to get too and near good shops and restaurants, friendly staff and good breakfast. Needed a room to sleep one person but requested a double, actually would have slept 3 people. Not the fanciest of rooms and no... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Mentone. The staff were friendly & helpful, the breakfasts were good quality & the room clean. I chose this hotel because it was close to Euston Station & also just across the road from a conference I was attending so from this point of view it was perfect. I would definitely consider returning &... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Mentone Hotel is a bed and breakfast situated on beautiful Cartwright Gardens in the Bloomsbury area of Central London. The hotel has been owned and managed by the same family since 1972 and has long been a popular choice with tourists and business travelers due to its pleasant surroundings and convenient location. We are just a stone's throw away from The British Museum, University of London, The British Library, Oxford Street, Eurostar, the West End Theatre District, and the neighbouring areas of Soho, Holborn and Covent Garden.The hotel occupies three townhouses on a Georgian crescent and consists of five levels (lower ground floor, ground floor, first floor, second floor and third floor). The townhouses are Grade II listed and the hotel has no lifts (elevators). We are a non-smoking establishment. ... more   less
