“Value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

The location of the hotel is superb, a 2-minute walk from St Pancras & King's Cross, where a lot a tube lines meet, so it's very easy to start and discover the city. The hotel has a baggage drop off, so when you're too early to check in, you can just leave your luggage there and start your trip. The same goes for when you leave; if your train leaves in the afternoon, you can still use their baggage facilities. The room was quite small and very basic, but provided everything you needed. It was clean too and they changed the towels every day, which I find a plus as well. The breakfast is ok, but the breakfast room is too small for the amount of people it needs to serve. Personnel was very friendly and helpful. If I had to say anything bad, I'd say that they should invest in insulation and double glass. The hotel could be noisy at night and sleeping at street side made me enjoy the hustle midnight traffic and noise. But overall I was quite pleased with my stay and thought it value for its money. It's surely an option to stay here again on a future trip.

This is a very good value, basic warm little hotel close to St Pancras station, it served my needs perfectly - a clean room, facilities, TV and a good breakfast with friendly service. I was a solo traveller in London on business and for 1 night so I have no complaints.

The hotel is within a 4/5 minute walk of the station so it's ideal if you want a one night stay before a train or flight.

I stayed in a twin room and it was VERY small, hostels have bigger rooms! The beds were smaller than single beds and not very comfortable. The bathroom was in the room itself but it is actually a cupboard with a sink, shower and toilet in it (no really!).

So overall, one night is fine but anymore and I'd find somewhere else.

My dad and I were in a private room, she was small, and the bed to short, but, it's an really good hotel for 2-3 nights.

This hotel is just in the street in front of King's Cross & St-Pancras Station, which is a good place to discover the city easily !

For my future trip, i will choose Meridiana Hotel !

The Hotel Meridiana is very close to kings cross railway station,less than 5 mins walk.My single room was very small but spotlessly clean,I was only there to sleep before catching a train early next morning.There was a very tasty cooked breakfast included in the price.The only minor problem was the narrow staircase to try and haul my luggage up.But apart from that I would highly recommend this hotel as a very clean quiet affordable place to stay.

This was very clean. Rooms were tiny but cleanliness was most important to us and it was clean. Staff were friendly and helpful and we were able to get into our room early since we arrived from France wet and bedraggled at mid morning. The breakfast was plentiful in the Full English style and although the coffee was not terrific the general offering was quite good. Overall we thought it a good value for a London hotel.
