Stayed here for 1 night as was sightseeing and theatre. Location was great as right near St Pancras and kings cross so very easy to get too. Breakfast was included which was good as was a full English. Would I go back?! Probs not. Rooms were clean but bed was uncomfortable and I hardly slept.

I am surprised that there is a person reported that found the staff friendly; ??? I found them arrogant and mocking. Wi-Fi works only in the basement at breakfast area and that sometimes not all the time. When I asked the receptionists about the problem with Wi-Fi, she claimed that I had problematic tablet.!!!! The room was tiny and we... More

Nice clean Hotel. Pleasant and helpful staff. We never got back to the hotel before 8 pm. We really only used the hotel for sleeping, showering, and breakfast. Breakfast was good. 7 pounds for the full English. On the Blue line of the Big Bus so easy to get to. Taxi from the centre to hotel cost 10 pounds.

We booked this hotel because of location. Very close to Kings Cross station which was also Piccadilly line from Heathrow and only a few stops into central London. Also was just a short walk to Euston station for trains North. Very friendly and helpful staff. Room is what we expected for the price which was treated as a base for... More

We booked this hotel due to location and price but this was a very poor hotel. The room was clean but the breakfast was the worst I have ever tasted cold. Bacon was rock hard and the toast was just cold bread. I did say to the reception but they did not say much about it. The room was very... More

Great location, close to King's Cross station for onward travel to the rest of London and beyond. Great price, hotel very basic but for the price paid can't complain, main thing was room was clean. Breakfast room can get very crowded at peak times but if you are in a hurry and can't wait there are plenty of other options... More

If I had it to do over again, I'd definitely have picked a different place. The shower was not clean, the shared toilets (one per floor) were not suitable, and I felt unsafe on the steep and slippery stairs. That said, the staff were friendly, the view was lovely, and you can't beat the location. I was also kind of... More

We booked this hotel based on location and the price included breakfast and free wi fi. The reviews were helpful, as always, a mix of opinions. On arrival, the booking in was quick and efficient. Our room was in the basement and next to the dining room, in the morning we could hear noise from tables/chairs being moved and general... More

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
