“Didn't get what we paid for”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

We pre-paid for this hotel and were guaranteed a Executive room with king bed (my husband is tall), and quiet side. We got a double bed on the noisy side. Had to take the mattress off the bed so my husband didn't have to sleep curled up.
The first night our room was extremely hot. The temperature has to be adjusted by staff. That was what we were told for two nights. Third day I was told we could adjust it in our room.
Not impressed and we cancelled our return stay here for later in the month.

Room Tip: Ask for quiet side if you are a light sleeper. Euston Rd. is very noisy.

The Megaro is a modern, contemporary hotel which is ideally positioned for Euston (10 minute walk) and St Pancras (opposite). The hotel is clean, although our triple room was a little small and little worn in places. I could not recommend the Karpo restaurant for the more traditional of us who prefer a full English! Overall a very good hotel in a great location.

Room Tip: Don't go a standard room if triple - very small

In front of St Pancras (Eurostar). Extremely friendly and efficient front desk. Greta bed and spectacular bath room. Would have been perfect is the maid hadn't entered our room without knocking, just to put milk in the fridge. Well above other hotels at same rate in London.

This hotel is across the street from St. Pancras rail station where we took the Eurostar early next day to Brussels. The hotel is quiet, clean, quite comfortable and stylishly decorated, but one of the best things is its adjoining restaurant, "Karpo." It is a real convenience and treat to have an excellent restaurant in your hotel, and our dinner of homemade pasta was terrific. We'd go back in a second.

Room Tip: Our room was on a busy street (3rd floor) but turned out to be quiet inside.

We booked Megaro for our 2 night stay in London.
This hotel was in a great location, the entrance to the tube was just outside the hotel which is great for exploring London.
We had been upgraded to a Superior Double room which was very spacious, modern and clean.
Only gripe was the room was a little noisey but this is due to the works at Kings Cross but not the hotels fault.
We had breakfast both mornings which was good with a nice choice of different things.
Staff were friendly and kept our bags for us when we checked in and out.

Stayed here to catch an early Eurostar - the location is perfect for that and the price was reasonable for London. We had a large room and bathroom. We opted for a room with a view rather than a "quiet" room. Although overlooking a busy road we weren't disturbed by the noise. The hotel is only a few minutes walk from the British Library. The only downside was that the free wifi was unreliable.

Stayed here for 2 nights before taking eurostar to Paris.It is the perfect hotel for this.
The rooms a compact but perfectly formed and designed.The only downside was the surrounding area was a bit dicey but that is not the fault of the hotel rather Camden Council.The staff were great,very helpful and if you need to store luggage,use Access storage directly opposite hotel,much more reasonable than St.Pancras.
