We were placed there for a conference and were quite happy. It wasn't flush, but it was pleasant, clean, quiet and good enough. I love the location and would definitely stay again. Breakfast was good. We never tried the hot meals.

When first arriving we were later than our original time which had been stated that we arrived by, this did not matter and there were no complaints from the staff as they handed us our keys (You get to choose how many keys you would like for your room). When entering the room everything is neat, in order and clean,... More

Very quiet and pleasant location in Mecklenburgh Square. Apparently you can have the use of the private garden in the centre of the square (though mislaying a key will cost you £50). Friendly and very helpful reception staff. Clean, comfortable room; towels with towelling on them rather than sandpaper; good water pressure in the shower; large and extremely comfortable bed...

Superfriendly staff, nice rooms, small bathrooms but ok, great location - very quiet! and delicious breakfast! But be sure to take the breakfast in the main house of the Goodenough College (across the street). Staff overthere is very kind and friendly as well!

Positives: a. Water pressure strong (even on top floor); b. Towels that still have lots of ‘fluff’ in them; c. Carpet underlay that still has plenty of bounce in it; d. Generally, very clean throughout; e. Remarkably quiet area of London. Less positives (if one had to be really picky) a. Stairs only - no lift (stairs to top floor... More

After reading other Trip Advisor revues, I was pleasantly surprised at what I found after booking a 2-night stay. I can't understand why people say this is difficult to find - walking distance from Kings Cross/St. Pancras and Russell Square tube on the doorstep. Yes it's a bit unusual in hotel terms and very much geared up for academia. But,... More

It's an odd place , well to anyone who is not part of the so called " Academic circle" . It's a row of houses that has been adapted to provide accommodation only . no bar ,restaurant, or any facilities whatsoever , apart from the room . Not to say the rooms are not pleasant . It is hard to... More

Very easy to get to by tube (& close enough to King's Cross & Euston), this was not a normal looking hotel. Based around a square, I saw very modern apartment-type buildings, all with their own block door (& some basement stairs & doors). Although the building which had the reception was difficult to locate, once found the service was... More

I was put up here by an inviting university. Overall I was very happy. Great location, on the direct Underground line (Picadilly) from Heathrow, then 5 minutes walk. Clean, reasonably quiet, solid wifi. I was in one of the 'Mews' room (601) which worked out fine. I understand that some may find all the glass a bit too exhibitionistic but... More

Stayed one night for NYE. A few minutes walk to/from several tube stations, the Goodenough Club is spread over a number of different buildings around Mecklenburgh Square. We were upgraded to a suite with a decent sized bedroom, huge living room (see photos) and a shower room. Reception was in the building adjacent to where our room was situated and... More
