“Bland Hotel”
Reviewed November 7, 2011

a very short stay,in a feature less room, with an uncomfortable bed, less than appetising breakfast , very slow service. and confusing layout, the only good thing was the location, lots to see nearby and a good selection of other restaurants.

Room Tip: not sure i could find one, long featureless corridors a bit like battery hens

We stayed here mid week for one night in a twin room. Hotel was easy to find, only a short walk from Euston. Upon arrival we were greeted by 3 'bouncer' type looking men on reception. It took almost 15mins to check in due to problems with another guest! Our room was on the 4th floor, it was small but was set out well and clean. The wetroom was very wet & having a shower soaked the whole room. The frosted glass door to the wetroom didn't have a lock or close properly. We found the bar had no atmosphere. We were the only ones not wearing suits, waving laptops about & having meetings! The beds were ok but got woken by other guests a few times in the night. Breakfast was nice with a good choice. Checkout took 20mins due to hotel trying to overcharge for our room!!!

Don't be put off by the size of the room. The bed is extremely comfortable (firm and spacious king) and the hotel is ideally situated for easy walking access to Euston/Kings Cross/St Pancras stations. There is not much room to spread out but everything functions well. You just have to be efficient with your suitcase management.

recently stayed here and it was very convenient for euston. however that is about it, the rooms are very small with no drawers at all. the wardrobe will only hang 4 shirts at best, the room smelt of a horrible sweaty odour as did the corridors. the bacon and sausages were undercooked even having asked for them to be well done or crispy. not a four star in my opinion, not worth the money and would not stop here again.

Room Tip: asked to be moved but was advised all the rooms were the same

A modern and clean hotel in a great location 2 minutes walk from Euston station.
The rooms are on the small size but are clean and contain everything you could need from good Wi-Fi to great power showers.
The breakfast is served hot and with a large choice.
But without doubt the best part about staying in the hotel is the pleasant, and "yes we can" attitude from the staff which is sadly missing in a lot of London hotels that I have stayed in.
Many thanks to all the staff and I will gladly use this Hotel again.

Stayed for 1 night, in a single room. Yes, its small. Yes, the wardrobe isnt worth the space its afforded. Yes, the shower soaks the whole bathroom and yes there isnt anywhere for your suitcase. But all that said - I think this is a great hotel for a stopover or very short break. Its clean, modern, relatively quiet, very close to mainline rail & tube stations in a handy location. As previously reported, the breakfast is superb. One of the best I've experienced in London. If you're thinking of staying here, please take note of all the reviews regarding space in the bedrooms. We ain't lying! But I would try not to let this put you off staying here. As a last comment - The staff are wonderful. Couldn't be any more helpful if they tried.

I was more than happy with my single room (which had plenty of space and a double bed). The wet room/toilet was fresh and modern and I welcomed the provision for disabled visitors (grab rails etc). Food was good and staff were courteous and helpful. As ever, location tips it: two minutes from Euston and in one of my favourite areas of London
