Reviewed February 18, 2013

We were looking for a nice and simple place to stay for a couple days in London: clean, not too expensive and well-located.
We were very glad to discover these studios, close to Saint Pancras with all the underground lines, but on a quiet road. The rooms are very small but it's London, so it's quite usual, but everything was very neat and well furnished. The place isn't noisy at all.

A good experience I'll certainly recommend

Had the misfortune to stay in a standard room during recently and to say the room was small is an understatement. The bathroom is long and narrow to the point of your elbows touching both walls and knees touching the wall when sitting on the toilet!!! The basement room was accessed down a narrow stairwell, this being the only fire exit as bars are on all room windows. I found it strange that fire exits were not listed on the back of the main door to the room as every other hotel I have been into lists these. Point to note, is that the room is not serviced daily and if you attempted to cook anything in the room, there are no external vents, so your bedding etc will smell. The bed is a good size and the room was clean but this does not compensate for the small room and very small bathroom facilities.

My partner and I both happened to be working in London for the week and so this seemed like an ideal base for us easily walkable to the Inns of Court. We had a basic double studio, the smallest I think that there is. It was exceptionally clean, very comfortable and had all the facitlities that we could need. I've had much smaller rooms in other cities and this was more than adequate for our needs. OK you need to be tidy but we were both very happy with the space and lived, cooked and worked in the room at various times during the week and found it more than adequate. I have booked to return next month and will be using this as a regular base when visiting the city from now on.

My boyfriend and I stayed here valentines day evening and I have not a bad word to say about it. The staff were friendly and the check in was made easy. We had a standard apartment on the top floor but my bag was offered to be carried for me. Our room was modern, quite small but more than enough room for the two of us and it was only for one evening. The bathroom as clean, kitchen equipped with everything you could think of! All in all it was fantastic and I would definitely go back again!

We stayed at the Cartwright Gardens apartments in readiness for a very early start on the Eurostar.

The accommodation is very small, but given the price, the standard of furnishings and the attention to detail - a small bowl of fruit, lovely bathroom toiletries and free wifi - we did not mind so much. I could not have done more than one night as it felt a bit like sleeping in a cupboard, but it was fit for purpose and a handy location to get to St Pancras within 10 minutes.

The 24 hr reception is handy and if you have time, wander round to Marchmont St, which is just around the corner. A lovely spot with a good Italian and cafes. It is not much further to reach the British Museum too.

We booked through booking.com.

Stayed in the north gower street apartments as they were cheaper, and was a bit worried at the lack of photos. We needn't have worried. As good as the Cartwright gardens and arguably a more convenient location close to three tube stations (all less than five mins walk away, eustin square just 1 minute)
Decent bathroom and toiletries and will definitely be back! Very quiet too!
Good size bathroom (this is London remember) and decent kitchen facilities....

My room was small, the bathroom even smaller and if you're overweight, you would not have fit into that shower.

The place is expensive with very little that leaves you feeling like you've gotten value for money. The bed was VERY comfortable, I will say that. And the location quite ideal.

The cancellation policy is tricky and will have you paying out of your you-know-where if you don't read it properly. And if you stay longer than 3 days or so, they charge you for cleaning your room. Yes. I read the terms and conditions upon check-in. And if you don't show up for your booking, they will absorb your deposit and charge you the same amount as a cancellation fee. It's truly ridiculous.

You'll get better value for money at a hotel. The Pullman is literally around the corner from there. Book with them.

Studios2Let, General Manager at Studios2Let Serviced Apartments - Cartwright Gardens, responded to this reviewResponded February 12, 2013

Dear Andong,

Thank you for taking your time and submitting the review. We appreciate guest feedback, and would like address on the points that you raised.
We can assure you that all rates published online both on our own website, as well as on all booking agencies sites include VAT and service. There are no hidden costs and we don’t charge our guest for maid service. This service is provided free of charge if you stay with Studios2Let for more than seven days. What you have read on your registration card is that we “expect the apartments to be left in a reasonable condition on departure”, and “if additional cleaning is required the cost of this cleaning will be charged as an additional charge”. On practice it means that if we find the apartment being vandalized and/or furniture being damaged heavily, than the guest will have to cover the expenses incurred by us.
Our cancellation policy states that we require seven days’ notice, should you wish to cancel your reservation free of charge. This does not apply however to discounted bookings made under special conditions, where 50% deposit or full prepayment is required however in cases of cancellation/no show we do not charge the outstanding balance.
We hope that will help you and our prospective guests to understand our policies, and will clear all the doubts with regards to the costs and charges.
