The best thing about this hotel is its proximity to Kings Cross/ St Pancras: only about two minutes' walk from those places, so hugely convenient for underground, buses and trains.
In a road of generally seedy-looking hotels I'd guess this is one of the best: fairly recently redecorated outside and, on the whole, clean and bright inside too.
Reception staff were really helpful and pleasant; much of the public space seemed to be being decorated, which meant the place was a bit of a mess, but all in a good cause, I guess.
The room on the first floor was a double with bathroom. The room was small, though clean enough, the bathroom the tiniest I think I've ever been in, but again it was perfectly adequate to the task- unless you're a very big person in which case I'd advise against it.
All in all the hotel was good value for money and a bit more idiosyncratic than some of the cheap chain hotels would be for similar money.
