I'd booked Albion house for a nights stay in London to celebrate our coral wedding anniversary and to see a show. The guy on the front desk( at the Melville where we had to check in) was very polite he said we could leave our bag till check in later at 2pm. We went for a wander and went back for 2. We were then took to our room which was in the Excelsior and not the Albion, he gave us a couple of different reasons why it was changed, none very convincing I.e something was wrong, then there been a electric problem but we were still to go to there for breakfast next morning ?.At the time of booking I didn't know we could be put in any of these 3 houses and they were all linked together, the reception picture on website seems to be that of the Melville and not Albion. We were took up to third floor( no lift) n into a tiny little entrance, the room was very small and the bed was right next to the window, but it was spotless. There was no plug for the sink and when I went to use the shower it was freezing and half the water ran down the back of piping. I wished I'd realised we would have to go else where for breakfast as I wouldn't of paid for it and also hadn't realised it was toast &cereal, don't no how much I paid for us to have two slices of toast, me a juice and my husband a tea. The gentleman who seemed to be in charge of this seemed more interested being on his mobile than taking time to explain to help yourself to the food. We had to check out by 11am and it cost us £1 per bag to leave bags till our train later that afternoon.It's an ideal location for kings cross, but other than that I don't think id stay again.
