Such great bed and breakfast hotel.
Great location, very clean, the staff are so help full & nice, you have a choice of breakfast and it's always very good.
This was my second time that I stayed in this hotel, if I go back to London I will definitely choose this hotel.

On a calm square, just next to St pancras Station a lovely family hotel.
In a refurbished old house a calm and clean hotel where you feel yourself at home.

Nice room, good bathroom, very nice breakfast and nice people at the front desk!

Room Tip: Ask for the family room at the rear side of the hotel.

Used Macdonald for a night rest to catch an early Eurostar to Paris. Booked a triple room with shared toilet for me and my gf at 75pounds. This hotel is onlty 5 min walk to St Pancreas startio. Besides that, i can hardly mention any other pros. The entire hotel seems to have seen better days as a small 3 storey house. The entrance is a small door which requires a key to open at night. The reception area is no bigger than a big bathroom. Our room is at level 3 and we have to carry our big luggage up 3 flights of narrow staircase. The corridor is narrow and smell mouldy. The room is poorly decorated. TV seems to fit perfectly into an antique shop- old and not working. The worn out mattress was higher on one side and depressed on the other. The shared bathroom has a urine stench so strong that my tummy churned. Someone must have mistaken the shower for urinal. Fortunately for us, this nightmare last only a night.

Macdonald Hotel is a good choice if your priority is location. It is located near the King's Cross Station so you can easily reach centre of London.
But the accomodation conditions are average. Rooms are small and the equipment is basic and a little bit oldish (however clean).
Breakfast is provided. Its quality is not really good, but at least you can drink some hot coffe in the morning.
If you don't expext the highest quality and you wish to stay close to the centre for a reasoable price - Macdonald Hotel should satisfy you.

Perfect location yet very quiet! Perfect for those looking to be in central London as King's cross is about 3 minutes walk from it. The room is small but has everything you need. Very friendly staff and amazing breakfast! Would go to Macdonal Hotel again!

The location of Macdonal Hotel is good. It just take a few minutes to Kings Cross station.

Though the hotel is not a new one but like other reviews said it is clean. The room is a little bit small but everything is ok. The most important to me is the shower works well.

The room rate includes full English breakfast. Breakfast is very nice and service is good.

Staff are friendly and helpful, especially Saviour.

In conclusion, the hotel is value for money.

Needed a one night stay somewhere close to St Pancras and quiet. This hotel was perfect. Its not brand new, but is clean and the staff were friendly. I was on my own and felt safe both walking to the hotel and once inside
