We stayed at St. Athans in a family room on the second floor. 2 adults and 2 kids. The room was very simple, but clean and the beds were comfortable. Pretty quiet area, so sleeping is fine. No breakfast included, but a good coffeshop in the hotel basement serves excellent breakfast meals and good coffe. Walking distance to Russel Square... More

I was here with two of my friends and this sort of hostel/hotel was perfect for our week-end in london! The staff was super nice and really helpful! We were able to store our luggage with them before and after our check in and check out. The cafe under the hotel was a real big plus with great breakfast and... More

Just stayed a single night at the St. Athans. Staff very welcoming. Room less so. I realise this is an old Victorian building of 3 or 4 houses knocked through, but it is very tired with lots of corridors and stairs making it unsuitable for anyone with mobility problems. The room I had was located 1 and a half floors... More

Thanks for your feedback although it didn't sound like the St. Athans was the place for you. Just so readers of your comments might be tempted, I can say that yes our place is full of winding corridors and staircases, just like the 200 year old Georgian terrace buildings they are. This of course can be is a total pain... More

Stayed for six nights originally had booked but extended my stay. Very friendly staff. Good price compared to well known local hotels. Similar to a guesthouse, lots of clean bathrooms or an ensuite choice. Only downside was noise but not hotels fault they are fully booked and next to a main road!

The staff is what makes this place great! You are taken in charge from beginning to end. If you arrive early and your room is ready, they'll let you check in. The rooms are very tiny, cramped and the ones facing the street unfortunately are very noisy. The windows do not have double glazing. Tavistock Place is a main thoroughfare... More

Thanks for your very thorough review - it gives a good account of our place. A couple of points to add - it seems that the last time you stayed here was a while back, as we now have free WIFI in all the rooms of the hotel (not just in the guest lounge), and have replaced a good number... More

I stayed here a few nights ago and will definitely stay again. The hotel was easy to find from Euston station (approximately a 10 minute walk).The staff at the hotel were friendly on my arrival and my room was basic but clean and cosy exactly what I needed after a walk in the rain. My room was facing a road... More

St Athans Hotel is located outside the city centre however it is just around the corner from the Russel Square tube station and it only takes about 10 minutes to get to the centre; it is also very close to the Kings Cross Train Station. The staff were all very friendly and the room was very well kept and cleaned... More
