You all know how it is to browse through booking.com to find a satisfying hotel for those few precious days in London and not find anything. Well it turned out that it is possible to find a nice hotel in the centre of the city, with easy access to convenient lines of the tube as well as somewhere clean and... More

Just a five-minute walk from Kings Cross station and across from a pleasant neighborhood park, this is a great place for a brief stay in London. I note some of the negative reviews about this hotel, especially overbooking transfers, but this was not my experience. My room is small but well equipped and the staff polite and helpful. Forgive me... More

We loved this hotel. Minutes walk from St Pancras/Kings Cross/Euston. Stayed one night on our way to Paris. Took my 18 year old daughter with me who described it as stunning and quirky. Our room was small but perfectly formed as they say. Would stay again.

We stayed the weekend here and it was literally a minutes walk away from the station in a very quiet square. Check in was very efficient and our room was clean and spacious. Breakfast was adequate for our needs... Great location, great stay...

Right next to kings cross station, this hotel is perfect for anyone commuting or travelling on the next day. The reception desk is 24 hours, making it perfect for anyone needing a late check in, though its location and the surrounding budget motels/hostels give off an eerie presence so be-warned if arriving after dark. We arrived around 10pm and once... More

Fantastic location, wonderful warm and helpful staff, clean and contemporary yet charming interior. We made the booking not expecting even a fraction of what we were presented with upon arrival. I simply cannot recommend this hotel enough, its ticks ever box and is more than value for money – in fact I would have paid much more than I did... More

My husband and I visited London for the first time back in the end of July and was recommended by a friend in the States to stay here. After doing some research at other places around the area, this was the most affordable, pleasant and convenient place to stay. The staff were very accommodating, our room was a great size,... More
