We have stayed at this hotel 3 times now and have never had any complaints. The staff are always very polite and friendly. It's located right next to the kings cross tube station which makes traveling easy. The rooms are compact but contain everything you need for a comfortable stay.

I was expecting much less for such a price so was pleasantly surprised (based on pictures of similarly-priced hotels in the area). The room was renovated and very nice, though small.The shower was fine and beds were comfortable. The only drawback was that had a couple of technical issues with our room - such as one of the radiators was... More

I did enjoy my stay at the Melville. At first I was a little worried because I've stayed at other hotels in the area that were extremely dingy (and one in particular had a terrible smell!) for the same price. But I was pleasantly surprised as the whole place had been recently remodeled and the facilities were quite nice actually.... More

In search of a one-night stop for a concert trip, the Melville distinguishes itself by having genuine Single rooms. Part of a small group of hotels in the KX area, I found it to be clean, tidy, and far better than i expected for a non-chain, back-street hotel in the area. The front of the hotel faces onto Argyle Square,... More

We had a pleasant stay in this nice and cosy hotel, near Kings Cross Station. The room was small, but convenient. The bathroom was even smaller, but the shower was marvelous! The staff of the hotel was very friendly and helpful, super. WE did not have breakfast in the hotel, bit enough opportunities in the area.

The staff were friendly on arrival and the room was of high quality, maybe slightly noisy, but this is central London you can't expect countryside silence. The bed was very confortable and the TV well placed. Clean en-suite and reasonable space to move around, for the price it was actually very impressive. I have been to far worse in London... More

Dear Guest Thanks for your review and taking the time to let our potential guests know about your experience. The hotel is positioned in the heart of central London and just behind the busy Euston Road; given that we are surprisingly quiet. Really glad you enjoyed our Pocket Sprung Hypnos mattress with its Luxury Mattress Topper also by Hypnos. Thanks... More

I was booking a hotel for me and my partners' anniversary and decided, rather than a chain like Travelodge, to try somewhere different that might be more personal. I chose Hotel Melville for two reasons: It was cheaper than Travelodge because of their 50% off campaign and their website had an attractive menu of extras you could book for the... More
