Rooms were tiny and didn't look anything like the photos. No elevator, no breakfast, wifi didn't work half the time, water in the shower was too hot to stand in, no airconditioning. And worst of all, I left covered in bedbug bites!! Terribly overpriced. Not recommended!!

Although the location was convenient to King's Cross Station, the rooms were poor value for money. Remains of other people were left in the shower which needed a jolly good scrubbing and so small it was difficult to move in----the sink and vanity posed the same difficulty. The room was extremely small--little storage and with no lift, be prepared to... More

The hotel is right next to kings cross station which was perfect, it was very clean and perfectly cosy for two of us.. The staff on reception was very friendly and showed us to our room. I would defiantly like to use this hotel again next time I'm in London

Close to St Pancras/Kings Cross, Argyle Square quite attractive. Rooms very small but clean. But management needs to check rooms daily, in our room safe didn't work, TV lost the satellite picture after 20/30 minutes, light over mirror didn't work, no plug in wash basin. I don't suppose it is part of a cleaner's job to check these things daily... More

This hotel has many positive points. It was very good value for money and the central location was very convenient. The hotel stood out as being quite stylish and modern, though perhaps not to everyone's taste. The rooms were very clean and although it was small, that is to be expected in central London budget hotels. The negative points were... More

I stayed at Albion House on a business trip for a couple of nights from 27th April. Service and cleanliness were first class. Check in was efficient and I was very quickly in my room. I had read the reviews about the size of rooms so had upgraded to superior double. This is still a very small room and is... More

I was a little nervous coming here after the reviews but it wasn't a bad experience. Room was tiny (small double) but most importantly clean. Shower in bathroom had the cover of the drain on the floor missing but otherwise it was nice and bed was comfortable and clean and everything was as it should be. Wasn't too noisy at... More

Checked in at the main reception which was lovely and very modern in decor. We were walked a few doors down to the Excelisor house. Our room was number 21 on the first floor so luckily only had to walk one flight as there appeared to be no lift service. Room was very pokey. We'd paid for a superior double... More

I made a reservation in the hotel. The reception is actually in another building. Nicely decorated. Good first impression. Upon arrival i was informed that my room was not available due to problems with heating / electricity. I was offered a room in a neighbourhood hotel (European House).
