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....

Traveling solo, this hotel was everything I was looking for. Close to the Euston & Kings Cross Train Station I had a small room with a sink. Good bed, great English breakfast, and a short walk to the British Library.

Staff is great to work with. Rooms are fine, typical of other European hotels. Clean, neat, well run. They provided us everything we asked for and are constantly improving their services. We stayed 7 nights and never felt it was time to leave. Great location, one block from the tube and the trains so you can easily get virtually anywhere...

I reserved this place for a weekend trip in London. If you are like me that your plan is to stay the least as possible inside the hotel and you value the most location, quality/price ratio; then this is the place. The bed was confortable, the toilet was not that small (I was a little bit afraid after reading some...

We chose this spot for a single night for its location next to both King's Cross and Pancras stations. It is a small room for two people, but maybe your Yoga practice will come in handy. There are four Indian food restaurants around the corner on Euston Street. We chose the closest one and the food was delicious. The architecturally...

We enjoyed a very pleasant stay in a clean room with a comfortable bed in this family run small hotel situated right in the heart of London - just round the corner from one of the exits of King's Cross St Pancrass Station in a fairly quiet side street. The British Library is only a few steps away. Delicious English...
