“Ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

For arguments sake its ok if what you want is a good location for Euston etc.
The rooms are clean and done to a high standard. However, our room (lower ground) had its window jammed open, we were not able to shut it as there was some kind of safety lock, so I froze most the night.
Breakfast was average, sausage, bacon, undercooked eggs, beans and tomatoes- cereal choice of cheap cornflakes and oats. Yoghurts were a nice addition though.
Staff were pleasant and it was tidy. However, Internet sites need to state that this hotel isn't disabled friendly at all.

As I said, its ok for a cheap hotel, just needs a few tweaks to various things.
would return if at lower cost, there are more value for money hotels out there for lower prices at better standards further away from Euston.

Just a five minute walk from London Euston, this hotel couldn't have been more convenient. We arrived early and although our room wasn't ready, we were able to leave our luggage at The Judd Hotel just across the road without any problem at all. Staff were very friendly and went about their business with the utmost courtesy and efficiency. On our return later in the day, we checked in, again at The Judd, and collected our luggage and room keys. I was delighted with our room which was spotlessly clean and very spacious with a sitting room type feel about it. I felt immediately relaxed. My husband was also 'at home' in a very short space of time having dropped his bags, and stretching out on the large double bed proceeded to take control of the TV! I was able to make myself a coffee whilst I unpacked. The two full-length windows of our room overlooked an area of park where there appeared to be a game of tennis in progress as the weather was so fine. Breakfast was also served across the road and downstairs in The Judd Hotel but as it's only a few steps away, it mattered not. A self-serve full English breakfast was on offer as well as the usual cereal/toast/yoghurt/fruit with tea/coffee being served at the table. We left the hanger on the door when we left on the second day to ask for our room to be serviced, and sure enough, on our return our room was in pristine condition once again. We would have no hesitation going back. Well done everybody at The Jenkins and The Judd. Just a couple of observations. As the hair dryer was on one side of the bathroom door and the mirror on the other with the cable being not long enough to reach across, a small mirror above the hair dryer would make a big difference. I was able to use my travel mirror but it then slipped onto the floor and the casing broke. The other thing is that because our room was at street level and the beautiful windows overlook the pavement, we would have benefited from a voile/net panel on the bottom half of the windows just to save our modesty. The weather was so lovely, that we wanted the curtains and the windows open but it did leave us a little exposed.

Room Tip: Our room G04 in The Jenkins was a treat. Although in close proximity to Euston, the location has a...

I stayed here last minute. I looked for the cheapest hotel close to Euston, where I could have my own bathroom in the room and this was it. Yes the room was tiny, but all I needed was a bed for the night. It was very clean, new bedding, lots of toiletries, breakfast was ok. And the receptionist was a lovely chap.

Cheap and cheerful. I was put in a lower ground room where a very loud and consistent buzzing from outside which I can only assume was an extractor system or generator. I tried to call reception, but it was constantly engaged. Wouldn't recommend.

Theatre trip and booked on line - good clean hotel , when you can get in they have a reception in neighbouring hotel Judd . Rooms are new and overall very good. Would go back again as very close to Covent garden . Nice restaurants bear by good choice.

I stayed here mid week, the location is excellent..only a few minutes walk away from Euston and Kings Cross. I was given a basement room which was ok but seemed very noisy, there was also a distinct lack of plugs (there was only one and I had to pull the beds out to get access to it).
Breakfast was nice.
Would go back but ask for a quieter room.

Room Tip: Dont go for a basement room.

Great location for King's Cross and St Pancras, as well as a neighborhood with laundries, pubs, stores. Room fine, staff at desk excellent, breakfast good, but could use more variety (6 days, the choice was getting old. Will say, people saying this has small rooms, need to check the price the paid - rooms right for price. Avoid basement, just because sort of depressing.
