Located opposite Kings Cross station the hotel sits amongst a collection of budget hotels. Based on stays at other hotels in the area and other reviews, I would suggest this is one of the better ones.
Greeted enthusisatically by the owner, check-in was efficient and pleasant.
The room was a bit small - but perfectly adequate. The ensuite appeared to have been built into the original wardrobe! However, it was clean and everything worked. Plenty of hot water and powerful shower.
Stairs are a little narrow - I'd suggest taking a soft bag rather than a large suitcase!
Breakfast is downstairs and there is a good choice, although one of the other residents had a little trouble communicating with the staff. His request for bread as a continental option being turned down, however he could have toast as that was on the board. My choice of cooked breakfast was on the board so I had no problem - and it was very good.
Overall, recommended as a budget hotel for a visit to London for a short stay.
