“Terrible”
Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

The bedrooms are horrible. Instead of plugs there is extension leads full of paint. Bathrooms are shared and dirty, burst pipes in the bathrooms. Bedroom window don't shut so it's left wide open. Bedroom has damp and holes in the wall. Carpets are filthy, the reception staff are rude and give you false information. The tv in the room is tiny, doesn't work, no remotes, and the rooms smell like sewers. Isn't worth the money at all, it's a third world, not even a basic room. Absolutely disgusting! Wouldn't ever stay here again!
Breakfasts in the morning was freezing, not suitable for rats never mind humans! No lift, we stayed on the third floor so we had to carry a heavy case up 3 flights of stairs, with no help!! We are all women aswell! To use the showers you had to go out your room in a towel and 9/10 times other people in the hotel would see you. We had a faulty plug as we asked 3 times for it to be fixed..finally when it got fixed, the electrician was really dodgy didn't look qualified at all! The staff are rude and I would never ever return to this disgusting hotel again!

Don't expect too much, and then you will not be disappointed. Room was tiny but OK, everything worked, cooked English breakfast was good. Staff were friendly. The location directly opposite St Pancras station is excellent. We were on the 3rd floor and there are no lifts, which was a pain. But I've stayed in hotels in London that were much worse than this one. I would stay here again.

I had the misfortune of staying at the Belgrove Hotel in Oct 2013. It's a real dump, only slightly better than using a sleeping bag and sleeping on the pavement somewhere outside King's Cross. I've been travelling around the world for 20 years and I have a clear sense of sub-standard accommodation, including in under-developed countries. I would put the Belgrove hotel amongst the three worst hotels where I stayed. What makes it worse is the fact that London is the capital of what is supposed to be a very developed country. I got a single room at the Belgrove hotel: extremely tiny, dusty, falling apart; the so-called private bathroom was so tiny that one can hardly enter in it; the room was next to the reception and therefore very noisy; the breakfast room was also very small; the so-called orange juice they served tasted like detergent... Seriously, if you look for a hotel in London, forget this horrendous place! Bernardo

Recently stayed at the Belgrove Hotel with my sister while visiting london for 3nights and was very happy with our stay. Yes the hotel is looking alittle outdated and needs redecorating but if your looking for the ritz, this isnt it. It was clean and tidy, beds were comfy and made for us everyday, clean towels put in our rooms everyday too, staff were really friendly and the breakfast was a nice hot buffet selection.

Hotel room was pretty basic but it had what we needed..clean onsuite, tv, tea making facilities and clean and comfy beds. No trouble with noise either, we were out each day but were back in our rooms around 8pm and didnt have any issues or disturbances during the night...was nice and quiet.

Location was fantastic, right across the road from st pancras/kings x and a 2 minute walk to the tube station if that so we didnt have far to go on our days out.

Great price for a central located hotel, again location is great, about a 5min tube ride away from covent garden/piccadilly/leicester square.

The only thing i would ask for next time is a lower situated room. we got a twin room right on the top floor so was very tiring going up and down them everyday with luggage and bags etc.

Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a low level room, we got a twin room on the very top floor so was tiring going up and down t...

Recently stayed at the Belgrove Hotel, as it was close to st pancras station, and a literal 1 min walk away from the tube. The staff were lovely and helpful, yes, the toilet/shower was a bit small but with a bit of maneuvering it is possible. Nice breakfast, and comfy beds and would stay again. if you're after something grand this isn't the place for you; however if its just somewhere to lay your head for a few days, then this is perfect.

Room Tip: if you have a lot of luggage, avoid the top floors as no lift is available.

If you're in London and just need a place to sleep because you're otherwise planning on being out and about, this place will work for that. It's steps from the South Euston Road entrance to the King's Cross Underground station (just across the street from St. Pancras), so the transport links are outstanding.

Our room was pretty bare bones, but it was definitely worth what we paid for it. Don't book this hotel expecting lots of amenties, and you'll be fine.

Room Tip: Try to get a room not facing the road. (Though we had a room facing the road, and I found that ea...
