Upon arriving we struggled to get in as the owner was in another part of the hotel and had left the desk unoccupied. We had asked for a room at the back on recommendations from trip advisor reviews. Unfortunately this was all the way through the hotel, out the back and above the bank building next door. My partner carrying a flight bag sized case found this a little difficult to carry up the metal staircase so be aware of that. No lift.
We were at the end of a corridor which had around 4 rooms, our own kitchenette and a shared bathroom. We always found the bathroom clean, however our room backed onto the shower so if we had had noisey neighbours we might have been a little annoyed. Luckily we never saw anyone. Our room (3a) could have been described as the 'box' room! Very small even having to crawl into bed as it was against the wall, but we weren't that bothered as we were only there to sleep. The heating was lovely and warm and could be controlled. The kitchenette was fully equipped but breakfast was provided in the main part of the building in a converted cellar. Help yourself to toast, eggs, cereal, crisps and fruit with satellite tv and sofa.
Overall this b&b was fab for the price (I think £279 for 3 nights). A 5 minute walk from Bow Road tube station which was a direct route from St Pancras. As within zone 2 pretty good on travel prices too. Would possibly use again.
