My mom and I stayed 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were friendly and our room was clean and cozy. I had expected our room to be much smaller. The beds were comfortable. Breakfast was really delicious and hot. We felt very safe here. The toilet and shower was clean and conveniently located just a few steps... More

The rooms are simple, but clean and nice. The breakfast is good and the staff is very, very friendly and helpful. The Hotel is located very Close to King's Cross/St pancras, so it is extremely convenient. I have enjoyed staying at the MacDonald Hotel very much and if I come back to London, I will stay here again!

Get this place for the location, not the amenities. It's about a block from King's Cross/St. Pancras stations, and within easy walking distance of lots of food (we recommend The Skinners Arms) and the British Museum. It also has decent, consistent wifi, and the breakfast downstairs is okay. However, the room itself is quite small, and doesn't have air conditioning,... More

Macdonald Hotel is conveniently located and very easy to find only 500 m from St Pancras Station. The hotel is clean and reception is polite. The bedrooms are generally small and the beds ok. Some rooms have ensuites, others shared bathrooms. But importantly, the bathrooms are clean. I have stayed here a number of times and find it convenient and... More

We booked this for the three of us (my wife, youngest teenage son and I) to stay the night before a trip on Eurostar. We booked the room for three with en-suite bathroom, the room was functional (the view was not anything to write home about but we didn't book for that reason) and clean and the beds were fine....

I was after a B&B with a central location that would house the 4 of us. The hotel, although slightly tired decor fitted all of this. They were accommodating of my gluten free diet at breakfast (choice of full English, cereal or yogurt, tea or coffee and toast). Only downside was the water in the shower didn't keep a constant...

The MacDonald hotel is in a great location, absolutely perfect for my needs. I had read a lot of reviews in advance so I really wasn't expecting much, just a nice place to put my head down each night. The hotel overall is fine, clean reception, friendly staff etc, everything you'd expect from any hotel and nothing out of the... More

We stopped here overnight as we had an early morning trip on the Eurostar and this B&B is across the street from St Pancras. The location is great and it is cheap but it's also a bit gross. The shower fixtures are completely rusted and the bath soap wasn't even wrapped up (therefore probably used). The beds are shockingly hard... More

Stayed here at the beginning of August and found it very cheep for the location. The rooms are small and you share the shower and toilet which is not ideal but for the price you can not moan. The breakfast is good and hot with a friendly services. Check in was smooth and they were very helpful. Thanks for a... More

A very nice hotel, one of those warren type ones with stair cases going everywhere. I would loved to have explored. A friendly welcome, they even allowed me to drop an overnight bag off a few hours before I could check in. When my nine year old daughter and I checked in we recieved a friendly welcome, rapid check in,... More

Neighborhood Profile

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. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
