It was our first time staying at Saco Holborn. We liked the location of the apartments. It was close enough to walk to most places. We ended up walking with our luggage to St. Pancras to catch the train to Paris; it was about a 10 minute walk. Our initial perception of the place was lukewarm as the receptionist really did not give us any talk about the place. I.e. rules, internet, where the garbage was located, the welcome pack in the room. I got most of my info from the binder in the room. She was trying to upsell someone who was just checking in that day as well, the internet package. I spoke up and said that I was told via email that there was complimentary internet. And then she said, oh yes. but it is slower. Neither one of us was planning on streaming anything. The free internet is sufficient for checking email. Although it would lock you out after one daily entry.
The location was great. There is an awesome italian restaurant downstairs that was always busy. Make reservations there if you want to eat. The pub downstairs on the corner is famous. Couldn't really go with the kids. It is around the corner from Coram's Fields which my 9 and 11 year old kids loved. We had to go everyday for the zipline. The nearest tube station is Russell Square. Near that was a food/shopping court with a full supermarket there. The restaurants were nice there too. The tube station is a hassle because you had to wait for a lift to get up and down to the station. The only thing about this place that I would really warn people about is the noise level. While we were there, they were experiencing a heat wave. Although, there is no air conditioning, you were fine if you left the windows open. However,
Overall, I highly recommend this place. Except for the unfriendly woman who "greeted" us the first day. The other people in the office were nice and helpful when I had questions. Also, there is in room washer and dryer--one unit. The dryer hot steams your clothes, doesn't really dry them. But it is so hot and steamy, that when you take it out and drape it something, it will dry.
