We chose this hotel due to the reasonable price and its great location. We were staying mid week for one night on a wednesday as we had tickets for an event at Scala. The hotel is walking distance from kings cross and the venue. Located on a typical London square opposite a park. First impressions were really good. The Excelsior... More

The problem is that I was at the last floor (the 4th), with no elevator and at that floor the wifi wasn't working (quite... More

The hotel is basic, clean, in a great location and a good price - everything needed for a weekend in London to do some sightseeing and wandering about. The room was a small double, and was exactly that - a double bed, a sink, a small wardrobe and a bit of space for bags etc. If you've got a lot... More

The location is great as its across the road from the train station. When we arrived the receptionist said they had upgraded ONE of our rooms. There where 4 of us and we had all payed the same amount. He had shown us the first room which i didn't realize was in fact the upgraded room as it was small,... More

Location was great right next to kings cross station, but unfortunately the room was lacking... Hair dryer didn't work, the lock on the bathroom was broken and unusual smell from the shower. On our last night, the fire alarm went off at 1am and stopped after a couple of minutes. Waking us and our neighbours, nothing was said as to... More

This hotel was in a great location for me, very close to Kings Cross underground but on a quiet street. The staff were polite and my room was spotlessly clean. I was upgraded from a single to a double room. Great value for money and I will stay here again.

We booked a night here when we visited London for a friends birthday. We booked the hotel as it was centrally located and the pictures gave the impression the hotel was clean and modern.
