Stayed here earlier this week when in London on business and took my family along too. We booked a 'Junior Suite' but I think this is a little ambitious to reference a suite to be honest. It seemed that a standard size hotel room had been chopped into 3 to accommodate 2 very small rooms and a bathroom. We managed... More

This hotel wouldn't suit everyone, but was a fantastic base for the night as we were coming back late into Kings Cross station. The style of the hotel is so unique and quirky, plus the bathroom was stunning. Definitely a great location for an alternative romantic night away!

This hotel stands out, and not only due to its funky and fun design, but also because of a welcoming and accommodating atmosphere created by its human and feline inhabitants. The location is perfect, right across from the Kings Cross train station. We had a two bedroom suit on the top floor, perfect for traveling with a teen. The room... More

This quirky creative hotel is a real gem. Firstly its perfectly located if you travel into London via Kings Cross, Euston or St Pancreas and given its location our room was surprisingly quiet too . Secondly if you aren’t a fan of corporate beige and characterless non-places this is the perfect antidote ….covered in genuine artwork with plenty of extra... More

Quirky style and certainly not what you would get in one of the big chain hotels. But what a fabulous location, right next to Kings Cross/St. Pancras and fantastic value. If you get a double room, you won't believe the price. Great breakfasts and helpful management. Also if you get a room at the back, it is amazingly quiet for... More

Spent one night with my wife in this cozy, stylish small hotel, very conveniently located. This place has character, starting form the small lobby decorated with art pieces, the narrow wooden stairs and characteristic rooms. We could book only the smallest room, and bed was a little narrow for two, but there are other wider suites available. The experience was... More

Lovely place exactly as expected from write up. Excellent service from friendly, caring staff, ideal location, clean, quirky and definitely worth a visit. Yes, rooms are on the small side (as you are made well aware from description) but what can you expect from a house built in the16th century? Loved every minute and will be going back.

3 stays at Rough Luxe over a year, and while the concept still flies, the place is getting weary. If any of these things were one offs, you might not notice, but when 3 visits accumulate failed bulbs, no glasses, an a previous guest's damp towel in the bathroom, you begin to wonder. & then a reservation at a nicely...

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum.
