Small hotel, very close to King's Cross/St. Pancras. Surrounding area a bit...colourful but not threatening. The hotel is undergoing renovations but still functioning manfully. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful. I had a single room which was at the top of 4 flights of stairs. The room was small but compact and clean. The bathroom was very modern with a great shower.
Breakfast is served in the basement. It was great but there could be a wider choice of cereals and perhaps yoghurt. I was surprised how busy the hotel is, as due to the labyrinthine layout, you hardly ever see any other guests.
As I was leaving at 4.30 am to catch a train I asked for and got a prompt alarm call.
All in all a decent little hotel but not worth £70 per night!
