From the outside I thought it would be a lot nicer than it was. First I was given my key and directed down some dark, wood panelled subterranean corridors to my dark, wood paneled tiny room. They would be better knocking some of the rooms through to give guests a little more space! I dumped my bags, had a cup... More

Oh my it's small! Compact! Tiny! Beware the double bed that's not a full double size! That apart, it's clean, exceptionally well located and I would certainly stay there again for a one night stopover. If you pay the lower end of the rate it's great value. If you pay close to £100 you may feel a little cheated... Although... More

This hotel is super for your London trip, let`s start off with the biggest upside, location. Location is everything and this hotel could not be any more central, five minutes walk away from Kings Cross St. Pancras tube station you literally have easy access to pretty much everything in London. The rooms, admittedly are small, there`s not much space to... More

The hotel is Clean but extremely small!...its hardly enough for one. Next time I will pay more and got a real room! I may consider it if I am traveling alone and had to use the train for my trip.otherwise is not value for money.

Clean rooms and friendly 24/7 concierge. Only one slight gripe - bed was 2 feet wide and I found myself taking care not to roll off sometimes - the room is small I know but an extra 6 inches on the bed width would not have caused problems. I still slept well though and nice to have a window that... More

Arriving in late, reception was very kind to us and location great. Yes the room is small but all that you need plus tea/ coffee and plenty of pillows. Very quiet location also which was handy for a good nights sleep.

Stayed here with a friend the night before we had a big job interview in a three person room. The staff at reception were so friendly and polite and helpful. The room was on the ground floor but we felt safe to open the window because there was a drop below the sill to a basement room. It was clean... More

1.As it was noticed here the room is too-oo tiny. No room for an extra chair, one bed is for kids only - too short. 2.No air conditionning or even ventillation! 3. The worst thing that has happened with us - after leaving London I realized that 1 of $100 bills in my wallet was missing. Even worse - my... More

The hotel reminded me of a hostel, lots of stairs and winding hallways. This is a no frills place - so don't plan to stay here with high expectations. However, the location is great. You are a block away from the Underground station (King's Cross/St. Pancras). The are shops and restaurants, and a cute pub around the corner. The British... More

This hotel is perfectly situated, literally 2 minutes from Kings cross with easy access to all the sights via tube,etc. I'd booked a 'large single' but actually had a double bed,I was on the 1st floor so felt totally safe about having my window open. The room was spotless & the bed very comfy, the bathroom was rather compact but... More
