Because these are apartments you have to accept a couple of drawbacks - our room wasn't cleaned, sheets changed or made up over the 5 nights we were there. But £100 for a room in Bloomsbury with a kitchen was worth it. Shower rooms are small (no baths at all) Kitchen is well appointed with fridge and freezer. It's in a great part of London close to Euston, St Pancras and King Cross but also very close to the British Museum, Russell Square and the marvellous Brunswick Centre. There are good pubs and restaurants nearby in Marchmont Street and the aforementioned Brunswick Centre has some good restaurants but in particular I would recommend Carluccio's. One small think is the clatter of helicopters overhead from about 6 in the morning till evening. I have no idea what they're doing or where they're going, but they're noisy - not the fault of Studios 2 Let, but you just might want to be aware, if you're a light sleeper, like my wife.

We spent the first 3 nights of a 3 week UK tour at Studio 2 Let in Bllomsberry. The place was o easy to find only a short walk from Kings Cross Station. The studio was small but a perfect size for a couple and had everything we needed plus the bonus of a view over the neighbouring park. The staff were exceptional holding our luggage after an early arrival. The location was absolutely perfect and easy walking distance to all one would want to see in London plus dozens of great local eateries and bars. We loved London and this place played a big part in that enjoyment.

I was very impressed with the cooking facilities and all kitchen utensils that were provided. Although the room may be a little small but it is very clean and new.It's within walking distancce to King's Cross underground station which is very convenient. Overall, I enjoyed my stay very much.

Stayed here for 3 nights with my girlfriend while on a tour of Europe. This was the only apartment that we stayed in on our trip, and it was fantastic. Very close to the major train stations of St. Pancras and Kings Cross. The room was very clean when we got there, and the only problem with location was a little bit of noise early in the morning. Easy enough to hop on the tube and get any where you needed to be - or even just walk there. It was also amazing to be able to do laundry on a long trip - a word of advice on this is that it takes forever to dry the clothes in those dryers. Also, if you ask the front desk you can borrow one of their U.K. to U.S. power converters (just the plug - not the adapter) for free (just put down a deposit). Stay here if you want a clean, cheap and convenient apartment/hotel without sacrificing much (cleaned only after each guest or once a week)

My husband and I loved our stay at Studios 2 Let!

The apartment was clean, modern, and perfect for living as a "temporary local" in London. Although our stay was only one night, we could definitely see ourselves returning to this place for a longer trip since the apartment is equipped with a small kitchen.

The location is great--right near King's Cross/St. Pancras, half way in between the British Library and the British Museum. Plenty of places to eat just a few blocks away that are off the beaten path--our favorite was Pret A Manger (lunch/deli/cafe).

My only caution to fellow travelers is that the studio, especially the bathroom, is rather tiny. I had to sit on the toilet at an angle since my legs were too long, and the shower had just enough room to turn around in. The way the sink was positioned, it was impossible to wash your face without splashing water onto the floor. But, in my opinion, those were very small things that didn't detract away from the trip at all. I was thankful to have a private bathroom!

Overall, I would highly recommend Studios 2 Let to anyone traveling to London!

Room Tip: Even with our window facing the main street open, we still got a good, quiet night's sleep.

The rooms are a little small, and the bathroom is tiny. But this place has some very strong good sides. It is right next to King's Cross, the room is very clean and the reception was very efficient.They have free WiFi, which unfortunately is not a standard in London.
Since it is a "Studio" you have a small kitchen with all needed amenities and dishes, so it looks great for a long term stay.
On the down side, I had to climb 4 flights of stairs (or was it 3? you stop counting at some point) with luggage since there is no elevator

all and all I Strongly commander it.

Room Tip: If you can't carry your luggage, make sure you request a room on the ground level.
