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

Really close to King's cross station. It's comfy and has a bit of a "family style" you might share a table at breakfast and get to relate with other people (I liked it- got to meet new people). The staff is really friendly and helpful. For a 'bed&breakfast' it's actually great!

We stayed here for a night before taking an early morning Eurostar from St Pancras. It was what we were looking for - low cost, nothing luxurious, but clean and functional, and only steps away from the station. For dinner, we went to a great Italian restaurant a few minutes' walk away, but there are loads of options in the... More

If you're not too keen on spending a lot on a place to stay in London, then this is the place for you. It is probably the cheapest B&B in the Kings Cross area and is located about two corners away from the underground, and both Kings Cross station and St. Pancras station. The rooms are simple but comfortable, although... More

This is a budget hotel that is perfect for early morning train departure from St Pancras/Kings Cross. I had a small room on the ground floor so that was great, didn't have to carry luggage up narrow stairs. Double bed was very comfortable, and clean but the ensuite could do with an upgrade, room would be a bit tight for... More

The room was very nice, the staff was very helpful and the location was perfect, near King's Cross and St. Pancras railway station. The only problem was that there was no lift and the room was at the third floor.

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.
