This was the perfect location to see all of London. Super close to the Eurostar and the subway. Beds were comfortable and rooms were clean. They offer full breakfast included and 24 hr desk staff. We had a lower level room and it was extremely quiet even though we were close to a busy street.

Good, clean facilities. Excellent breakfast. Luggage storage when arriving early or after checking out is a great help. Staff always helpful, friendly and efficient. Always use this hotel as it is so convenient for station, underground and many eateries.

Stayed here with extended family and occupied two rooms. Was very surprised to emerge from St. Pancras International coming from the Eurostar to find the place just a few meters down the street across from the station. Basic but clean and comfortable. Toilet was sufficient but I would have preferred a larger sink -- the ones they have are really...

We often stay in Bloomsbury when in London and particularly like this location for its proximity to the tube stations. It is also a lovely area to walk in, nice streets and neighborhoods, London at work and play. Pubs tucked away nearby. Restaurants in Angel/Islington easily reached by bus or tube. Southampton Row also a short walk or bus ride....

Impressed with this hotel. Basic facilities, but was kind of staff put me in a room early (11am) after a long-haul flight. Called at 10am and was in my room an hour later. Couldn't ask that of most chain hotels.

This is a family run hotel which provides everything you could want in your room and is quiet even though it is so close to St Pancras and Euston stations.

The best thing about this hotel is the location: only meters from Paddington/Kings Cross, it is on a quiet side street. (The hotel splits between buildings on either side of the street, but this doesn't seem to be a problem: check in under the sign.) My room was perfectly clean and certainly adequate in terms of amenities - I don't...

Conveniently located - walking distance from Kings Cross/St Pancras station. The room was very small, but neat and clean. The shower was excellent - very modern and easy to use. No elevator meant carrying our bags up and down the stairs, which was difficult given the stairs were narrow. The staff were very friendly and the hot breakfast was excellent....
