“Good hotel, bad luck”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

The hotel was very nice and the location was excellent near the Euston metro station. Unfortunately our room was in the basement floor right next to the kitchen. The staff also used the room on their breaks and we could hear every word they said. They were also very loud when talking to each other. We asked the hotel if we could change our room, but the hotel was apparently fully booked. Because we had woken up really early and needed some sleep, this noise bothered us in the afternoon and also in the morning starting somewhere around 8.00. I'm used to hotel guests making noise and the walls being thin, but this was another case because the noise came from the staff. This was very unfortunate because otherwise the hotel was very nice.

The room was small but it had absolutely everything in it.. maybe a little stingy with the toilet paper rolls and they could have left some instruction on how to work the remote but I will definitely stay here again when i come back to London.

Room Tip: Ask for extra toilet paper.

Being in London it's great value (most cheap hotels in London are crap). Paid about 100 GBP for a small room with kitchenette. The bed was really good (not too hard and not too soft). Everything was clean and the decoration was up to date. The location was great for my purpose; 5 minute walk to Euston train station and 3 minute walk to the Kings Cross tube which takes you to central London (Charing cross etc) within 10 minutes. The appartment is located on a quiet street close to a typical UK pub.
Didn't have much interaction with the staff, so I can't really comment on their service level, but they seemed friendly enough. Would I stay here again? Yes I would (and probably will).

On the plus side, the room (large studio?) was spotlessly clean; nicely laid out and the location of these apartments is excellent. If we had anyone in the adjoining rooms, we couldn't tell as there was no noise coming from next door or opposite. The minus side: mattress was really uncomfortable, big ridge down the middle and the springs had 'gone' so one side was higher than the other, which we reported upon checking out and the shower door refused to close, so water went everywhere; again we reported this upon checking out. Our room, 2 floors up, overlooked the front/tennis courts, which was very pleasant, but we just weren't prepared for the noise of people in the street throughout the night, which ranged from footsteps to people shouting. Whether this was exceptional or a regular occurrence on a Saturday night, we couldn't say. The bathroom is TINY, if you're over a particular height (I'm 5'9") you will have problems sitting down on the lav or bending down to use the sink and I would rather the kitchen space was sacrificed for a bigger bathroom (and bedroom)!

Room Tip: If you can choose a room, maybe have one that faces the rear of the building. Beware the stairs if y...

Studios2Let, Public Relations Manager at Studios2Let Serviced Apartments - Cartwright Gardens, responded to this review, March 8, 2014
Firstly I wanted to thank TuttiGoz for being fair enough to point out both cleanliness of our studio and top location, (grading us 5 out of 5) as well as nice lay out. Fortunately, for others to make up their own minds about whether the shower or bedroom are small for a central London studio. We would like to thank the guest for pointing out our weaker points. The shower doors have already been fixed… so hopefully no more flooded bathroom in this studio.
Regarding our mattresses; they are inspected on a regular basis and changed when needed, so all our guests can have a smooth and comfortable nights sleep.

We are located close to Euston, Kings Cross Station and the Eurostar Terminal but away just north of Russell Square on the edge of Bloomsbury in a classic curved crescent overlooking gated gardens and tennis courts, we would consider it being a quiet area, but for others, who live in the countryside the front of our property might be a bit noisy, on Friday or Saturday night. London at the end of the day is famous for its nightlife. Rear side of Studios2Let will surely be quiet enough for everyone. It’s a Georgian building and we have done our best to keep original staircase, therefore the stairs might be a bit steep.

Please note that most of the time male members of staff will be happy to help our guests with luggage.

Kind regards,

Studios2Let

Studio was clean, bed was small but good and the location was very good. The tubes russel square, Euston and King's Cross are located at 10 minutes walking. If you're coming over by the eurostar at station Sint Pancras a 10m walk will lead you to the studio.

These are about average in size for London accommodation, but are well appointed with everything one needs to cook (if desired). Location is excellent. 15 minute walk to the West End, 5 minuted to the Russel Sq. tube stop. Air conditioning works great on those occasional stuffy, humid summer nights. This is where I will stay in London from here on out.
