I booked this hotel through booking.com for my husband who had a business meeting in London. We chose it because of its close proximity to Kings Cross Station. When my husband arrived at the hotel the door was locked and a notice said the reception was located in a property across the road, He walked up and down trying to... More

Close to King's Cross on a quiet square, and good value for money because of this. Staff were generally very helpful although they should check guest names when keys are picked up. The website should be updated to point out that there is no laundry service.

Definitely not worth the money that I paid!! Reception not even part of the hotel, it's down the road in another hotel......very noisy!! Can hear everything other people are doing in the rooms above you and noisy pipes every time someone flushes a toilet in the rooms above. Apart from the comfy bed and good location, this hotel isn't even... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in a family room, very snug rooms but clean and in good condition, appreciated the fan during this little heatwave. As close as you can get for Kings Cross and St Pancras and they provide secure luggage storage on checking out day. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again

The hotel smells of cigarette smoke and this smell came in to our room (in the basement). We were a group of 4 crammed in to a... More

Cheap, pay for what you get I suppose. Very basic, clean enough, smelt a bit around the rest of the place. Not the actual hotel you stay in when you book, you end up going down the road.

The people in the hotel were very friendly. It is situated in a very good area for visiting the many tourist attractions in London! Directly across the road from this hotel is a nice park. Our room was good value for the price which we paid.

Neighborhood Profile
Bloomsbury
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.
