I visited London on business for three nights and found this hotel to be the cheapest. I wasn't expecting much so I was surprised when the quality was so high for only £55 per night. The room was a good size with tea and coffee facilities, a safe in the large double wardrobe and was immaculately presented. Cleanliness: the room... More

Okay, let me start by saying that we booked this hotel at a brilliant price and after reading some of the reviews, we were slightly apprehensive! We had been to Paris for the weekend, and planned on spending 2 nights in London before heading home. For the price we paid, we could not believe how close it is to Kings... More

This hotel is very close to Kings Cross railway station (2min walk) and surprisingly quiet. The hotel looks fresh from the outside and better than the photos. The inside is clean and smart, this is a budget hotel however for the price and location, cannot be beaten. The room (double with shared bathroom) was big enough, with TV and ample... More

I stayed at this Hotel on fri 5th dec 2014, (1) the carpet in the room looked like it had never been vaccumed, (2) there was body hairs in the wash basins and shower rooms not clean at all. cups had tea stains.

Picked this hotel (really a B & B) because of it's proximity to King's Cross Station and the tube. That was the best bit. Hotel was below ground level with no window - in 2014!! Beds were clean but only one pillow - no spares. Bathroom was clean but the window opened onto a central space overlooked by other rooms... More

I stayed for 1 night in order to attend an event in London. As other people have pointed out the rooms are small. I stayed in a single room up 1 flight of stairs with a washbasin and a shower, but the toilet was a shared one. I was impressed that the room was very clean. Compared to a lot... More

As mentioned in the title, these are the main advantages for the hotel, it's located in a very good area, and the staff there are very friendly, especially "Abdul". The room is small, but it's ok for the money and for sleeping the night.

This review may have been different if not in a basement room (which I was told is same price as other, higher level rooms, but often allocated to you, if you book late (which is what we did)). Between the hours of 1am and 6am it was quiet. Between the hours of midnight to 1am, and 6am to 10am when... More
