This is not a negative review. If nothing else our visit to this establishment has taught us to be more thorough before we book. The hotel does what it states it is there for. It provides budget rooms at a budget price. They are clean, well decorated and functional. Be aware there are no lifts if stairs are an issue.... More

We wanted to do London on a budget, this fitted the bill perfectly, the rooms are quite small but we expected that, bathroom adequate, bed comfortable and there was enough clothing space. Only real downside was the noise from the apartments behind us, but nothing major. The staff were very helpful and friendly, would recommend to anyone doing London on... More

Overall no major complaints You could argue the shower is a bit small and the coffee a bit basic, but neither a reason not to stop again. A little annoyed that last time I stayed I was placed in a ground floor room right next to the main door which meant I was kept awake everyone someone went for a... More

At this price so close to Kings Cross station and yet set in a quiet back street you can't do better! Yes they weren't serving breakfast due to refurbishment, and there was a little bit of noise from the tube but realistically these are minor issues. The room was clean and the bed was possibly the most comfortable hotel bed... More

We stayed at Albion House for 3 nights. We had our room several hours late without any compensation. Then we discovered the room. Very, very small room. OK, we're near St Pancras, it is very expensive, but the location is something. What is unacceptable is the unhealthiness of the room. A tiny bathroom, very disgusting, we seriously think about not... More

Service was really bad, the young man on the desk late at night merely grunted at us and reluctantly showed us to our room in a separate building across the road. The fact that it was raining and he was more bothered about getting the umbrella out for himself than hastening to get us there out of the wet weather... More

Given the location in central London, a few minutes from King's Cross the price is competitive. The room was small but adequate, we needed somewhere to change and sleep not move into. Small bathroom - shaving was a little difficult, but we managed. Grouting in the shower could do with a bit of scrubbing to get it looking better. Read... More
