Excellent location. Close to Euston, Kings Cross, and center, yet in a very quiet area. For the ones who prefer public transport, the tube is at a stone's throw. We preferred walking :) After staying at several hotels in London, I would say that rooms are not smaller than the average. There is no elevator, and stairs are a bit... More

Booked for one night, and dont know what the fuss is about! This hotel must be one of Londons best kept secrets. close to Euston station in a quiet area off the main drag. Clean and bright all the way thru, from the top floor where we were to the breakfast room in the basement. Beautifully clean and stylish en... More

First impression of this hotel is a warning. Torn carpets, shabby furniture and peeling paint. Reception staff are very unhelpful. My room was extremely tiny and bedcover had brown stains. Shower hot water not available on two days. Was told by reception that I should wait until someone else had finished showering! Breakfast items not always available. Only white bread... More

Have been visiting Mentone for the last two years, I travel for work and generally stay for 8-10 days at a stretch. Mentone provides a FREE WIFI in the room, this makes communication with the office very seamless and smooth. The staff is friendly, the rooms clean and Breakfast too good. I would recommend this to all Business and Holiday... More

My son and I spent six nights at the Mentone the last week of December 2006 through New Years Day. I was a little apprehensive after reading some of the reviews; however we were pleasantly surprised to find a clean, pleasant room with a functional bathroom. We had room 11 (at the top of the house!) and although we faced... More

For the price, it's centrally located and the staff was pleasant but that is all I can say about it. My room was tiny (which i'm used to in london hotels) but FILTHY and very run down. There were cig burn holes in the bedspread! a DUMP.

My husband and I stayed at the Mentone for 4 nights in late Sept 2006, and the accomodations were fine; nothing more and nothing less. I did a bunch of research, and we settled on the Mentone due to favorable reviews, affordable rate, and location. For starters, the location is in terrific proximity to the tube. I'd recommend it for... More

This Hotel is very well located close to the Russell St Tube Station and just a little further from the Kings Cross Station. We are a family of 4 and booked a Quad Room - one tiny room with a double and 2 single beds. The room was serviceable and clean and we were surprised that our towels were changed... More
