Stayed 4 nights here in August 2012 with my girlfriend to attend a course. As the Olympics were just around the corner we were looking for a cheap budget hotel.
The Excelsior was excellent value for money, at roughly £30-40ish per night. The room was pretty basic but had everything we needed; comfy double bed, washbasin and sink, wardrobe, and above all, it was cleaned everyday. For some reason the TV was on top of the wardrobe, but oh well, we weren't in London to watch TV.
The shower was pretty much a wet room, and the toilet was separate to the shower. I also believed they are shared with another room on each floor, but this wasn't an issue and they were generally clean.
Management were helpful with dealing with back storage, which was secured in a basement room.
The breakfast was basic - eggs, toast, ham and coffee/tea, wasn't too bad but a little bit cramped. It is also located in another building just down the road.
Best thing about this place was the location, literally a 5 minute walk from King's Cross Station, excellent. Also it was relatively quiet. Our room overlooked a basketball pitch/park which wasn't too noisy.
Overall it is pretty basic, but decent if you're looking for a no-frills, clean, affordable and excellently located hotel.
