Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

I stayed here with my sister in a twin room (room number 1) on the lower ground floor. What a lovely hotel in a great location. The beds were comfortable. The room was spotless. The breakfast was excellent and was way above my expectations. The staff were helpful and friendly. My friends shared a twin room (number 18) and were equally impressed. I will definitely stay here again.

I stayed here with my family 35 years ago and the only thing that has changed is the decor. The hotel is typical european; no lift and compact in areas. Our room had 12' ceilings, 2 twin beds and a king, a fireplace, small TV, small closet and small bathroom. Again, typical european (I've never understood why people complain about these things in Europe. That's just the way they are...small.) There is plenty of counter and shelf space for things both in the room and bathroom. The breakfast was important for us. We have 2 young teen boys and they know how to eat. You get a choice of 3 hot cooked breakfasts (menu is on the website) 4 kinds of juice, tea, coffee, toast, fruit, hard boiled eggs, cold and hot cereal, meats and cheeses, croissants, muffins, fresh fruit... the list just keeps going. It's all run by a sweet family. The front desk staff are not warm and fuzzy but they help you with anything and are efficient. We checked in early and left our luggage since our room wasn't ready. We also left our luggage upon check out and walked to the British museum (3 blocks) then retrieved it for the short (12-15 min) walk to St. Pancras. Russell Square is the closest tube stop. We took the 50 min Tube ride from Heathrow Terminal 5. The hotel gives perfect instructions on how to get there from Russell Square. There were lots of people wheeling suitcases around so we didn't feel odd. Bottom line: A great location. Room 14 is superb. Breakfast is fantastic! HIGHLY recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: With few hotels offering one room for a family of 4, this hotel is golden. We stayed in room 14, in...

We have stayed here a couple of times. It is very well located, close to St Pancras and Russell Square stations on the Piccadilly line, so you can quickly get to the centre of London and west end theatres. (Buy an Oyster Card). St Pancras can be reached directly from Gatwick on the First Capital Connect line which is half the price of the Gatwick Express. We have also stayed at other hotels nearby, and this is the best, if a little more expensive, but an excellent English breakfast is included.

I have stayed in this hotel one night only as needed to take a very early flight. There is nothing special about the hotel, so probably most customers only stay there due to the convenience to access major transport routes in London.

Excellent value, includes a good breakfast and the location is really convenient, close to Euston lots of interesting shops. Room size varies a lot, and sometimes you from one of the higher floors negotiating the stairs can be a challenge if you have bulky luggage. Overall a good reliable friendly place to stay.

Stayed at the Harlingford again last week for three nights, to pick my wife up at Heathrow after a night flight from North America. Got back to the hotel about noon, she was able to catch up on her sleep then we had a very enjoyable two days in London. Our room was number 8 on the lower ground floor. As always, the hotel is kept exceptionally clean by the excellent housekeeping staff and the rooms are so well designed and comfortable, making the best use of fairly small rooms.
Internet access was good most of the time, poor at others, but it was always easy enough to use the wifi in the lounge if necessary, as there the wifi is always good.
Very quiet and peaceful, we slept well on the comfortable bed! Lower ground level, you could hear the rumble of the tube train from below, but not too bad, in fact I found it restful. Tube doesn't run after midnight anyway.
All the staff are so friendly and helpful, but if anyone gets an especial accolade, it is the breakfast room staff. They are great. Quick, efficient and friendly service, and a great breakfast too!
We'll be back in ten days time, so looking forward to that!

Stayed here with a friend for a girls' weekend in London. The hotel was easy to find and ideally located (halfway between Euston and King's Cross). The staff were all really friendly and welcoming. We were expecting a very small room from the photographs but our twin room was more than big enough, nicely decorated and very clean. Breakfast was absolutely delicious. For somewhere so central, it was very peaceful and quiet. The walls are a little thin but it really isn't the hotel's fault that the woman in the room next door decide to tell her whole life story very loudly on the phone at 7am on a Sunday morning! Would definitely go back (and hopefully our next door neighbour will keep it down next time!)
