Room was meant to be family room, it was 2 double beds crammed in, a basement room situated at front of hotel, meaning when guests go outside to smoke it is heard and smelled in the room! No air conditioning or fan on a hit summers night meant we had to have the windows open. The room also was only... More

We stayed there because we need to be in the train station rather early, so this location is perfect, short walking distance from hotel to train station. The room is tiny, but it fits 4 of us, so we are happy.

Right next door to Kings Cross St. Pancras means you're close enough to access everything but the room was tiny. Thankfully we didn't want to spend too much time in the room. They were happy to hold our bags for us both before and after our stay which was helpful.

The pics posted on their site show only the better standard of rooms, and the better standard shower and toilet facilities. The basic room is so bad you have no room to swing a cat or even a kitten. Rough toilet and shower facilities.

We were perfectly located just in front of the Kings Cross station but the room was pretty poor. The bedding and the ground were a bit dirty, the bathroom very small, the alarm rang at 8am without any explaination. You can take this hotel if you don't spend too much time in your bedroom because you will be at 2... More

Just wanted to add a review that wasn't all negative. I booked to stay two nights at The Excelsior Hotel. After seeing the reasonable prices for London (everywhere seems to be at least £100 per night in a half decent location) I had a look on trip advisor after I'd booked, which was a huge mistake, I was then worried...

This hotel isn't bad for the money, the location is good. The rooms were clean. My only criticism would be that having a room on the top floor meant it was like a suana. Try and avoid this if possible.

This hotel is very close to Kings Cross station about 3 mins walk, but in a quite residential area. Rooms reasonable size, bathroom small but adequate for needs, very clean and comfortable. Breakfast very good was expecting just a continental but full english was offered. All staff very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay hear again.

The hotel is actually several hotels operated by one company and the rooms vary depending on which particular room or flat you get. We had a group traveling with us, so some of us had nicer rooms than others. The rooms are a bit small and 4 of us shared one bathroom, but we managed. The breakfast was good and... More
