I couldn't find anything wrong with the Wardonia Hotel. It is very affordable and in an unbeatable location, right down the street from 6 underground lines, the Eurostar and countless mainline rail services. The room itself isn't that small but the bathroom was exceptionally squishy. The room and bathroom was always kept spotless by the housekeeping staff. I had no... More

London hotels are generally small, especially mid-price ones such as this. However the Wardonia takes 'small' to an extreme. This was the smallest hotel room I think I've ever been in, and I'm not particularly fussy about size. It was a box, with a double bed taking up nearly all the room. The bathroom was so tiny that if you... More

We stay here for 2 nights to sight see around london at a great prize .Wardonia is a great hotel for location as it is literally down a little road from Kings cross/ St Pancras station. The room was very small and basic and the bathroom was small too. But we didn't stay in the hotel that much only at... More

If all you want a hotel for is somewhere to sleep this is fine. The rooms are small and the bathroom tiny, but it was all clean and fine. The shower was hot and powerful and the bed was comfortable. Free wifi is a bonus. Nowhere to work apart from sitting on the bed however. Breakfast not available but nice... More

Hotel was clean and very reasonably priced for it's location. 5 minute walk from kings cross which was brilliant. Bathroom was quite a tight squeeze but the single bed was a lot bigger than I expected and pretty comfortable. Would stay again!

Having stayed in several hotels in this area, this is the most average (at not necessarily the cheapest (others include breakfast - Wardonia does not). Rooms are clean and modern, but so small, it was difficult for us to both move around the room and navigate around our bags at the the same time (no storage space). The bathroom -... More

Nice things: The room is very clean, the shower is nice and big, there is TV, free wifi, and all the things that you need for doing tea and coffee inside the room. Good price for the money compared with other solutions in London. Bad things: The room is very, very small; the duvet is so small that sleeping in... More

I stayed at this hotel for a weekend break in London with my boyfriend and chose the hotel due to its convenient location. I had read the reviews online and followed people's advice and requested a room in a quiet area of the hotel. True to other comments it was still rather noisy at night due to people moving in...

This is a small pleasant and clean hotel just a little way from Kings Cross / St。Pancras。 Do not come here expecting anything approaching luxury The hotel was comfortable, the staff pleasant and the room clean。 The room itself was on the small side,be careful if swinging your cat, but for the price very good。The bathroom,also small,had a fierce and...
