I stayed here in May of 2012 for 4 nights in a room with two single beds.
It was a pretty good hotel. The location is great, right next to Euston station. Walking to the main area from the hotel (Parliament, Tralfalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus etc) can be exhausting, so it's better to get an Oyster card and take the underground.
The rooms were very modern and clean. They were small, but that was expected. The staff were friendly, although the concierge was a misinformed about the bus tour that we had purchased. We booked a package deal (flight and hotel) which came with a hop on hop off bus tour included. When we went to the concierge, he told us to just give our printouts to the bus operator when we first board. He gave us the map for the wrong bus company though, so it was confusing to say the least. We ended up getting a map from the bus operator, once we located the correct company.
The concierge was excellent though when we needed to book a shuttle to Gatwick. It was very easy and stress-free.
Breakfast is served every morning in the basement. The restaurant is modern and clean, as the rooms are. There's quite a big selection for breakfast, so it should please everyone. No complaints.
The only negative about the stay was the fire alarm which went off one morning at 5:30. Everyone evacuated the rooms in their pyjamas, confused and unsure of what the problem was. Apparently some smart guy decided to light a cigarette in his room, which set off the alarm for the entire hotel. Not the management's fault at all, so I can't deduct points on that basis.
Overall, it was a great stay and I would stay here again.
