Great small hotel located within walking distance of Euston Station and a short bus ride from Kings Cross/St Pancras. I needed somewhere cheap and convenient for a quick trip to London, however some of the other hotels on the area have atrocious reviews - The George Hotel had generally favourable reviews.

Stayed in Room 1, which is at a basement level and it was good sized twin room. Free wi-fi, flat screen TV, tea/coffee making facilities, plenty of space for luggage were all provided and it was quite quiet. There is some noise from the Tube running beneath the hotel and it is located near to the staircase for the night entrance, but I wasn't overly concerned - or disturbed.

Only real negative with the room was the distance to the toilet and shower - I knew it was shared facilities, but could probably do with one or two more loo's! Breakfast was fine and they say that if you want more, you only have to ask. I thought that it was worth the £4 price. The luggage retention system is excellent - saved a fortune against the left luggage facilities at the nearby stations.

All in all, I would definitely stay again. So convenient for the railway stations and the free wi-fi and baggage retention are both winners in my mind. Just a couple more loo's would be nice!!

Room Tip: Room 1 is in the basement but has a window to a courtyard and is generally quite quiet... apart from...

I stayed at the George Hotel for 2 weeks when I first arrived in the UK at the beginning of November. Have read the reviews on TripAdvisor I had realistic expectations of what the George had to offer and I was ready for the stairs. My single room on the top floor was more than adequate as were the shared bathrooms. Everything was spotlessly clean, I was provided with fresh linen whenever I requested it, and the staff were friendly and more than helpful. The George is right in the middle of Bloomsbury with its wonderful squares (parks) and Georgian buildings, just around the corner from Marchmont Street, with its cafes, pubs and shops, and only a few minutes walk to three tube stations. The only criticisms I had were the rather average breakfasts and the occasional noisy guests. Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the George and it was a wonderful introduction to London.

We recently stayed for two nights in a room with a double bed facing the street and park. Many years ago we stayed in one of the many hotels along the two blocks of Cartwright Gardens, and when looking for a low cost hotel we became nostalgic and decided to stay in the neighborhood again. Our expectations were realistic and were actually surprised for the better. The hotel was very clean, as were the bathrooms between floors. You need to be prepared that in the middle of the night you cannot simply roll out of bed to reach the bathroom. However, this didn't turn out to be a big problem there are enough bathrooms, so if one is busy there is probably a free one another flight of stairs up or down. The was equipped with everything, kettle, sink, hair dryer, etc. The heating was more than adequate and you could open a window or turn down the radiator. However, the double bed was really a short, narrow, hard double size bed. The outstanding feature of the place is the very helpful, courteous staff. They helped us get very scare tickets to War Horse a short time before the matinee without paying a scalper's price. Don't be put off by their seemingly cold, brusk Central European manner, they really can be very helpful, unlike hotel and tourist staff we encountered in Prague. The neighborhood is extremely convenient, close to many underground stations and bus stops. It has retained its quiet academic charm, as we knew it, but there a new feature, a shopping mall only a few blocks away with supermarket , drugstore, many shops and cafes. The North Sea fish-and-chips establishment was still there and still great. A pleasant surprise was our discovery of the Indian restaurant Humaira on Judd St. only a short walk from the hotel. At first we didn't believe the raving reviews on Google Places, but we can now truly say it is the best Indian food that we have so far eaten in London and we want back to eat there a second night. Aside from great Indian food, the owner also had a big heart and we were entranced when he led into the restaurant a large group of visually impaired persons and seated them at a central table. If we looking for a clean, budget hotel in a great London location again, we would return to the George.

Much more of a hostel than a hotel and at nearly £200 for a large double room for two nights B+B this seemed steep. First its good points - it's in a very pleasant and quiet location (a rare quality in Central London at this price); it's near to the mainline stations yet convenient for West End; it's clean and we had fresh towels each day; staff are cheerful and pleasant. On the downside - many things make it appear institutional - cheap emulsioned woodchip wallpaper, artexed ceilings etc, wired glass partitions, layer on layer of roughly applied white gloss, cheap plywood panelled doors that don't quite fit (or even open properly - had to sidle into our room), door furniture straight from a 1970's ironmongery shop and chairs in the breakfast room that looked suspiciously 'ex-conference'. The en-suite bathroom was a plastic pod similar to those which used to be in cabins on cross-channel ferries - however, everything worked. Breakfast also very hostel-like: not had tinned tomatoes for yonks - a reminder of 1960s boarding houses; tasteless half rasher of bacon and a broken egg - all served up on a cold plate; tinned fruit - also very 1960s; variety of cereals ok and fruit juices good; plenty of fresh coffee with very pleasant service. Throughout breakfast, there was the added entertainment of staff working their way through a huge pile of ironing through the glass partition.
