My husband and I visited London for our first time in May 2013. This was our first stop on a vacation to London, Paris, Florence & Rome. We decided to try to start in a cheaper hotel in London so we could splurge later in the trip. The rooms are very small but clean and neat. We've never stayed somewhere with a "shared bathroom", so this was a first for us. Although we will probably never do it again just because of personal preference, it worked out great for the 3 nights were there. The English breakfast was a great way to start the day. They had wifi. The staff was friendly and very helpful - always able to answer questions, had adapters to borrow, and held our bags for us. From the airport we took the train to King's Cross and walked about 1-2 blocks to the hotel, so it was very convenient to get to. When we left for Paris, we left from St Pancras which is also 1-2 blocks away so location was great. There are bars and restaurants in walking distance. This is an excellent option for a budget hotel.

Stayed four nights in December, the hotel is ideally located just minutes walk away from Kings Cross station for the underground and Eurostar making it easy for sightseeing in London and our trip to Paris. Our room was located on the top floor and apart from the struggle we had with getting our cases up and down the narrow staircase, which is to be expected with an old building, the room was spotlessly clean and noise free and had its own ensuite. All staff were welcoming and helpful. Full English tasty breakfast served each morning by polite efficient staff, the food is good quality and not your cheap foods, they even had soya milk? Would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: There is no lift to the top floor rooms and can be a problem lugging heavy suitcases up flights of n...

My husband and I stayed here in November when we visited our son who is studying abroad at UCL. The Jesmond Dene is in a great location. It was near the train stations, university, and British Museum. The staff was helpful and courteous. I hurt my knee on the trip and the staff had an ice pack ready for me when I needed it. We enjoyed the English breakfasts which were included. The room was small, but it had everything we needed. The Jesmond Dene is a great value in London. We highly recommend staying there.

With my family (my husband, me and my 3 children) we have booked the appartement for 3 days and 2 nights. The flat was clean, very comfortable and near from St Pancras and all shop/restaurants. No noise in the evening. All employees were very polite and courteous, and very helpful ( listening all our requests ) !
Really, it was a good experience and we will give your address to all our friends !
Thanks

Well situated and comfortable hotel in middle of where you need to be. We had a triple room on the lower ground floor, although small it has everything you need. When you're on the go in London all you need is a clean quiet place to crash. We loved the breakfast and the warm staff. The hotel is great value in London and its convenience to Kings Cross St Pancras station makes it a great choice.

We stayed in October for six nights. This is our second time here. We had a ground floor twin room, (same room both times) as requested. The size of the room was adequate as we only wanted to sleep in it.

The Jesmond Dene is literally 2-3 minutes from Kings Cross/St Pancras which was convenient as we arrived on the Eurostar. Also National trains and the tube.

Pubs and restaurants are close as is a Laundromat which is next door to a pub. Have a drink and meal while you wait.

Will definitely stay again if visiting London.

Room Tip: We had our own ensuite.
