“London Experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

The price of this hotel, and the fact that the breakfast was included were the reasons we chose this hotel. The hotel was very conveniently located 2 blocks from the train station. (We had taken the train to London from Paris and were returning the following day). The hotel is very small and doesn't have a lift. It also doesn't have a bellhop so we were grateful that we only had one very small suitcase each to carry up the (very narrow) stairs. The room was very tiny and everything in the hotel was dated. It is difficult when you are working with "old" to get things as clean as I expect in a hotel. The staff were very friendly and accommodating.

Room Tip: The Wifi was available in the lobby with the password but wasn't a strong signal. There was at l...

We stayed here for 2 nights and the hotel may not be the biggest but we found it clean friendly with a comfortable bed and good breakfast would definitely stop here again we had arranged to meet 2 American friends who were stopping there also and the great location was a major plus point as we were arriving at kings cross

This hotel is ideally situated for those who are using Eurostar, being only about 5 minutes walk from Kings Cross station. This area of London is very busy, however, the hotel is in a very quiet square away from the hustle and bustle. My wife and I have used the hotel on two occasions whilst seeing shows in London and both times were more than pleased with the quality of the hotel and the service provided. The rooms are spotless and welcoming, the staff are very friendly and welcoming and the breakfasts are excellent served in a very clean dining room. one very slight disadvantage is there is no lift, however, this is a very minor problem. I would recommend this hotel whether you are staying for one night or several nights.

Room Tip: Try and get a room at the front of the hotel as they look out on to a lovely park.

We stayed one night to get the Eurostar next morning, The rooms are very basic, but spotless. We had a decent cooked breakfast in very clean dining room with friendly staff. There is not a lift there, but for us this was not a problem. Ideal location for St Pancras, ideal for a short stay.

Room Tip: Again, please be aware there is not a lift.

My daughter and I stayed for 3 nights to visit New Designers and Collectif clothes shops lol. we both had single rooms which where basic and compact but very clean with a comfortable bed, (what more do you need) and a lovely view of the park. The staff very friendly, polite and helpful. The 2 minute walk to london underground was a god send enabled us to do all the sights in the four days we were there. will deffinatly stay there again and highly recommend it. Oh and the price was really great too well well worth it.

Only downside some folk might find is the stairs which are a bit much after a trashing day walking but its no different than being in a house and having to use the stairs there !!!

Ideally located 5 minutes away from King's Cross Station, the Underground and the Eurostar. The rooms are fairly basic, but the bed was comfortable and the rooms are very clean. For the price you can't go wrong. There are a wealth of pubs and restaurants nearby for all budgets. The staff are also very friendly and helpful.

Only stayed one night, for easy access to St.Pancras and a trip on the Eurostar to Paris. That said, the location served us well, but I'd never stay there for extended time. It's a lovely small hotel on the outside, across from a park, near some interesting areas of the city, and the lobby and other interiors are quite stylishly decorated. However, the bathroom is an example of all the wrong design decisions. It has a flimsy frosted glass door (might as well be a gauze curtain) and there's no shower enclosure, just sloping floor and drain, no hand-held shower nozzle, just a high fixed outlet up on the wall. No shelves for toiletries, clothes. What a nightmare! And a huge closet/cabinet stuck in the corner of our room took up way too much space. What were they thinking?
