Thfis hotel is not in the luxury category but is clean and comfortable and has some individuality when compared with others in the same price range. The breakfast was good and the staff efficient. Will certainly stay there again. The location is very handy for Euston Station and central for shopping and theatres.

Stay here regularly when in London. Great value and whilst not a luxurious hotel, certainly good for 2-3 nights in business. The staff are consistent (amazing in a London hotel) and there are some great stalwarts at breakfast. Been staying here for years and whilst the offer has not changed much, it draws me back. The company also runs the President (better, more expensive) and the Imperial (better again and even more expensive). Definitely consider this for a reasonably priced break hotel.

Rooms on the first floor are new, the other really old. Concierge employees are not kind at all and every question disturb them deeply; if you have to ask something to the room service, they GIVE you the phone, they prefer not working and stay impolite. Some rooms are not heated when you arrive, need two days to open heating; there is no middle or heating strongly and you feel bad or really cold; you can choose your season. Restaurant is ok even though most of employees or doorman not friendly.

Room Tip: If you have no choice go there

Stayed here on business last March for 4 nights. The hotel is very basic with small rooms but the location is very good for getting around the city. I had a room at the front of the hotel which meant I got a very poor night's sleep for my full visit due to the constant traffic and sirens,etc. the tariff is very fare for central London - paid £70 per night on a bed and breakfast rate. As I was staying there for more than 3 nights, I was also entitled to a free evening meal on my first night in their hotel restaurant or you can use the voucher in one of their other hotels/restaurants which are down the road. The food is type you may cook at home such as curries or salads. Breakfast is a buffet style with some choice such as a cooked English breakfast or a continental selection - it was all fine.

The benefit of the this hotel is the location - only a short walk to Euston Road and just up from Russell Square. The hotel is secure which is always nice when you're a female travelling alone.

Room Tip: Try and avoid rooms at the front if you are a light sleeper; however, with the location of the hotel...

This was a lovely hotel within walking distance of Kings Cross (10 - 15 mins). The staff were very quick to check us in the room was smallish but very nicely decorated and spotless. ,my only complaint about the room would have been it was very warm but that would be a plus for some. The breakfast was excellent. All in all we were very pleased with the trip

Great location in London. Easy to get to buses, tube and trains. Cleaning crew is wonderful. The only reason I didn't give the service an excellent is due to mis-information from the concierge. 1. Told that there were self-service laundry facilities on the 8th floor when I inquired about local launderettes. There were no self-service facilities. 2. When employees of the tube system were on strike Boxing Day, we were told by the concierge that no tubes were running (that was untrue). But I plan on using this hotel again...just not the concierge. :)
