Great hotel, great location. Located very near to King's Cross station, you can practically hear the trains. Room was clean and as described. Staff were friendly and efficient. Had a very relaxing stay. Very pleased, would recommend.

Upon arriving at the Howard Winchester, i was greeted by a rude woman who shouldn't be allowed to work with People. My friend and I proceeded to carry our heavy baggage up two narrow flights of stairs and when we arrived to the room we were very dissatisfied. The place is filthy. The walls are dirty and the carpet torn.... More

Very good location - 5 min walk from Kings Cross station. I stayed for 2 separate nights. It's clean and functional. The room had beds and a shower/toilet which is all I need for an overnight stay. Small TV in room. No tea/coffee making facilities. The light above the bed in room 26 didn't work. Staircase to room 26 was... More

The hotel is located at the bottom of Argyle Square so about 2 minutes walk to Kings Cross. The hotel is very clean. The bed was a simple metal frame so I expected it to be uncomfortable but the mattress was very comfortable. The en suite looks like it was added to the room as it is small at the... More

The positive: this hotel was the best value for the money that we could find. We had the family room. It was tiny by our standards, but we all (2 adults and 2 kids) had enough bed space. It was at a convenient location. The train and subway station was a very short walk. The English Breakfast was fine. The... More

Value for money hotel located just a few steps from King's Cross and St.Pancras International. Friendly staff and tasty English breakfast made our stay very pleasant. Rooms are a bit small, sometimes we heard our neighbors quite well, but otherwise just fine!

I paid a budget price for this room for 4 people on one night and I got exactly what it said it was, a budget hotel. The room was large and clean, the bathroom was large and had a big bath. There were minimal toiletries for 4 people (one little bottle body wash/one little soap). Plenty of toilet rolls but... More

I stay here every couple or weeks or so - and many others are also regular visitors - that should tell you something. OK, it ain't the Ritz - but its always spotlessly clean and tidy, the sheets are crisp and white. Its in a quiet location yet only a very short walk to both KIngs Cross and St Pancras.... More

It's not a 3 star hotel. But it was half the price of the King's Cross Travelodge, and the quality/facilities were broadly comparable. The rooms are small, the wifi is slow. But rooms are clean, breakfast is included in the rate and not bad. Maybe I have simple needs, but I'd happily stay here again.

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighborhood Profile
Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
