Perfect location, with easy access to my conference venue. Added unexpected interest were the shops and restaurants on Marchmont Rd. Hotel itself - very helpful, clean, willing to accommodate my luggage during the day after I had checked out. a good stay.

It was room only but below the hotel was a small coffee house which did breakfast, it was yummy and reasonably priced, you also got 10% discount with being... More

What can I say! Pet friendly? The receptionists and majority of staff dislike dogs and run to the hills when they see them. OK my friend had a few cigarettes on the balcony which is wrong, but they sent a letter and went through the bedroom bin looking for evidence! The towels weren't changed in the 8 days we stayed...

The rooms are small, there is no TV in the rooms, no ensuite, no coffee/tea making facilities, however the rooms are very clean and tidy, the furnishings are a bit quirky. It reminds me of staying in a friends spare room, once you get over the initial shock of just how basic it is you start to realize how good... More

This was my second stay at St Athens, and won't be my last, unusual for me as I'm someone who likes to always try new places. But there's no point; this has hotel is the perfect budget stay: friendly, helpful staff, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and yes, some people (moaners) might call them basic, but I like basic...

I spent 4 nights at this hotel and my overall reception is mixed. The pros are: very good location, close to tube stations and King's Cross / St Pancras train station. The staff was very kind and helpful. So the first impression was good. On the flip side, the biggest drawback was the room itself - very, very small -... More

Thanks for the review, which is quite useful for others to read, as our rooms are small, some of them very small - this is one of the reasons why our rooms are so cheap - as I'm sure many readers will have noticed as they look for rooms in the Bloomsbury area, despite the reviewer's comment to the contrary....

I needed one night's single accommodation in London for a quick visit. This hotel was close to where I wanted to be, and cheap. Not expecting much, I was pleasantly surprised. My room was up several flights of steep stairs (no lift), but was clean, comfortable, and quiet. Washbasin in the room, and shared bathroom and toilet in the corridor.... More

Thinking of staying at the St. Athans? The read this review! - for although they only gave us 3 stars out of 5, they have summed our place up very well: cheap, clean, comfortable, quiet, staff friendly and helpful, and the wifi good. Thanks for posting More

An excellent place to stay in a good location close to King's Cross, St Pancras, Euston and the city centre. The staff were courteous and friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. The cafe downstairs does a very good breakfast and guests get a 10% discount plus a free drink. All in all it was much better than I... More
