This hotel was chosen for its proximity to King’s Cross which is literally a three minute walk and it was within the budget I was given. The reception area is basic, and for the price I paid I wasn’t expecting much from the room. Fortunately for me, I was given a family room so the size was good for one... More

They charged us the total amount of our stay in the hotel, even when we did not stay there due to a big strike on the tracks of the Eurostar train. We called and everything but they would not listen. Very rude treatment!

I stayed in this room last night as a last resort to avoid a long journey home so late at night. I was not impressed. It was a cheap room so I did not have high expectations, though I was still shocked. There was no safe in the room, the door lock did not work properly and there was no... More

As a regular visitor to this hotel I'm always impressed by the high standard of cleanliness and helpful staff. The rooms are small but adequate for a short stay. It was particularly hot on the night I stayed on the top floor and without air conditioning it was a little uncomfortable but there was an efficient fan in the room... More

First of all, I didn't stay at the real Wardonia - I booked Wardonia because it was super close to Kind's Cross railway station, but when I arrived there, the staff told me since I booked studio flat, my real location was another 10 minutes walking away! Nobody could feel that happy when you just flew for 10 hours, and... More

Be aware this hotel is very basic. Our room was on the top floor. It was tiny, the bed was pushed up against the window wall. On the day we stayed it was stiflingly hot. The one good point was the helpful reception staff.

I would not stay at this hotel again. The rooms are very small and the passage ways very narrow. I was originally in basement which I had no mobile reception in and this wouldn't have been a major issue except then the wifi was also very weak I presume being at the far end. The reception staff were very helpful... More

Name it, small stinky rooms, midgets bathroom., the smallest bed ever, poor mattress, awful linen and duvet, no elevator!!! And finally a rude receptionist!! I've been to a nearby hotel to visit a friend in arriva hotel, no comparison and I was... More
