The room would have been fine for one, very short person, very cramped for two. I will say that it was quiet, given its location, clean and only one block to King's Cross station which is a very going place. I would only stay here again if alone. This hotel is best suited for young folks on a budget.

Pros - location. Very close to Kings X. While basic, breakfast was plentiful. Staff were pleasant. Cons - Very noisy, I hardly slept. Uncomfortable bed, scratchy sheets. No lift (although staff helped with bags). Luggage storage not secure. Unregulated temperature in room. Terrible shower. No tea/coffee making facilities in room.

Stayed here overnight with my mother. Price was fairly reasonable for London although a little excessive for what you get. As with a lot of hotels in London the rooms are very small and the bathroom is little more than a cupboard. The beds are reasonably comfortable but are little more than a put up bed and offered no back... More

Stayed for the night while visiting London with family. Paid £105 for triple room with breakfast. Check in was okay. Room however was just passable. Tiny for 3 people, in the basement, dark and dinghy and had a funny smell. Not much sleep as stairs. Just have been above us, could hear people coming and going all night and people... More

Needed to stay in the area at the weekend so booked the place. The price was a kind of reasonable for the location and included a cooked breakfast. The check in was ok, but the room was given in the basement with no window. When I asked for a different room, I was told none was available; there were a... More

The price of this hotel, and the fact that the breakfast was included were the reasons we chose this hotel. The hotel was very conveniently located 2 blocks from the train station. (We had taken the train to London from Paris and were returning the following day). The hotel is very small and doesn't have a lift. It also doesn't... More

This hotel is ideally situated for those who are using Eurostar, being only about 5 minutes walk from Kings Cross station. This area of London is very busy, however, the hotel is in a very quiet square away from the hustle and bustle. My wife and I have used the hotel on two occasions whilst seeing shows in London and...

We stayed one night to get the Eurostar next morning, The rooms are very basic, but spotless. We had a decent cooked breakfast in very clean dining room with friendly staff. There is not a lift there, but for us this was not a problem. Ideal location for St Pancras, ideal for a short stay.
