Comfort Inn and Suites King's Cross / St. Pancras
Ranked #646 of 1,076 Hotels in London
Reviewed November 20, 2007

I booked this hotel on the recommendation of reviews on this website after searching for ages to find somewhere central and not too expensive. I was a bit wary that it would be a bad hotel, but I was very pleasantly surprised.

At £115 it wasn't as cheap as I had hoped to find something for, but I'm well aware that anything under the £100 mark in central London is likely to have some six-legged inhabitants sharing your room. However, the room was big enough for me and my wife, and while the bathroom was small, we only stayed one night and just used it to shower, so it was fine. Everywhere was clean, there was hot water from the shower, and the staff were friendly and helpful.

In terms of the location, you are less than 5 minutes walk away from King's Cross tube station, within easy reach of all central attractions.

If you're in London just for the weekend and want somewhere to stay on a (relative) budget, you can't go wrong with this place.

The Comfort Inn & Suites is only about a block and a half from the Kings Cross train and underground stations. A few more blocks away in either direction are the Kings Cross Thameslink station and Euston station so the hotel is a great hub for day trips on multiple train lines or just using the tube. It's a good value for London.

The hotel has some nice renovated features including the bathrooms. The rooms are can be small (I stayed in two different rooms on separate stays during the same week) but they are up to date as far as European hotels go and they are quite clean. The rooms had TVs and refrigerators. They even had air conditioning but make sure to ask for the remote control at the desk.

I had a problem with my reservation but the staff was able to resolve the problem and adjust my rate. They may not be the warmest staff but they are efficient and helpful. I would definitely stay there again.

Just minutes away from the Kings cross/ St pancreas stations this Hotel is ideal. I even felt safe walking the neighbourhood late at night as a loan female, plenty of shops and eateries in the area.
For a budget hotel I was very impressed, I had a very reasonably sized single suite . The ensuite bathroom had pump style toiletries and the water was warm, plentiful with a powerful large shower cubical.
The suite had a very comfy bed, safe, tea and coffe facilities, Tv with good reception air con (I didnt use) and the bonus was the kitchen facilities sink, crockery, microwave and minifridge.
The room was on the first floor and the hotel was extreamly quiet, no noise from inside or out.
The room was also extreamley clean and modern. As a highly sensitive non smoker I sometimes find non smoking rooms have an odour of stale smoke covered by air freshner and this was NOT the case with this hotel.
The breakfast room was small but again clean and the breakfast worker attentive without being intrusive. A selection of tea coffee and fruit juice with croissants toast jams and boiled eggs accompanied cerial, yogurt and tinned peaches on offer.
Check in aqnd out was quick and efficient.
i would highly reccommend this hotel and plan to use it again.

We spent a week at this hotel recently and found it to be perfectly adequate, although the experience in some ways was little like camping out. The room was large and comfortable, but count on purchasing such items as shampoo, tissues, dish-washing soap and wash cloths if you’re staying any length of time. No bath mats are provided for the shower, which is tricky to navigate and very slippery. Other reviewers have indicated an indifference on the part of the staff, my first impression as well; but I later found them to be helpful and friendly if asked. Nonetheless, these are not professional innkeepers, and they lack any real sense of service (with the exception of the young woman who cleaned and set out breakfast). Only when asked did we find out how to work the room lights, which require a room card be inserted into a special slot. No one could explain the heating/cooling system, operated by a remote device with indecipherable icons, and the desk clerk finally advised us get used to the set temperature. Nor could they explain the automated telephone message system, which also lacked printed instructions and which caused us to miss a couple of important messages. And it does seem odd, even for a small hotel, to have only one person on duty at any given time, day or night. I had the impression that if anything went wrong with the room we were on our own.

Having said that, the hotel was a bargain by London standards, was clean, quiet and convenient. The neighborhood is interesting and obviously in the process of shaking off its bad reputation. The Camden Town Hall, with a tourist bureau, is at the end of the street and there are half a dozen pubs, small restaurants, ATM’s and Internet cafes within easy walking distance. King’s Cross St. Pancras station has a wealth of services available two blocks away. But stay on the main thoroughfares and avoid back streets at night: We witnessed one drug deal taking place just inside a nearby alley.

I would stay here again.

I found the hotel perfectly adequate. In London with my mother and sister to catch a couple of shows and take in some sightseeing, all we wanted was a place to sleep which was clean and warm, and this hotel certainly fulfilled those criteria. Having learned - to my own cost - that one cannot always rely on those qualities in one of the most expensive cities in the world, I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel itself appears to have been converted from two townhouses in the recent past. Consequently, almost everything worked perfectly. Certainly there were no dripping taps, no limescale on sinks, no broken light fittings to be found on our visit.
The suite was kitted out with a table, microwave, sink, and cutlery, so on the night that we simply could not face going out to eat, we were able to dine on supermarket fare. The light buffet breakfast may not suit those who rely on a hearty English breakfast, but I found it perfect. And while the woman on duty in the breakfast room was very obliging, the young men who staffed the front desk seemed a little more distracted. Overall, though, I found the hotel an excellent base if you want proximity to the Piccadilly Line, cleanliness and basic comfort.

Stayed for 1 night in suite 10 which wasn't too bad at all!

The hotel is well located about 10 minutes walk away from Euston Station and only 5 minutes from Kings Cross Station. Underground lines provide excellent access to different parts of London from both Euston and Kings Cross.

The Comfort Inn is located in a quiet street with lots of rather basic looking B & B's. There was no road noise or "people noise" from
the street.

There were lots of fast food outlets 2-5 minutes away including Burger King, KFC and Macdonalds. There were also a number of Indian restaurants close by. There was an M & S "Simply Food" in Kings Cross Train station.

Check in was efficient, reception was very small but had an adequate supply of information and magazines.

The suite was a reasonable sized room for London with a double bed, a settee, a small desk with lamp and tea and coffee and the real bonus a small kitchenette area.(see photos) 2 large windows look out onto the street, the window catches were a bit loose. There was a small self programmable safe which was easy to use.

The kitchenette consisted of a small but efficient fridge, a microwave and a small sink. There were knives, forks and spoons for 4 and plates for 4. Basic but clean and adequate for heating up a "ready meal" type evening meal if you prefer to stay in and relax after a days sightseeing, which I did as I was by myself

The shower room (no bath) was clean and ample towels were provided. Shower wash/shampoo and hand wash were provided in squeezy type dispensers.

Breakfast was extremely basic in a tiny breakfast room. There were 3 juices, 3 cereals, do it yourself tea, coffee and toast, hard boiled eggs, croissants, cheese, fruit, yoghurt and preserves on offer. It was OK but nothing to get excited about!

I would return here because of the location and the small but useful kitchenette facilities.

The room (suite) was large and good value for London. The room was clean and well furnished. The bathroom was spotlessly clean but the aroma reminded me somewhat of Venice. This may not be their fault. Notting Hill tube station was closed that day due to a sewage leak so I guess there could have been a general problem. The aircon was noisy and I had to turn it off at night. Kings Cross was not quite as bad at night as I had feared. Breakfast was entirely self-service (make your own tea, do your own toast) in a small room which included a sink where a member of staff washed the dishes as we eat. Her attire (long leather boots with heels) was perhaps better suited for the occupation for which Kings Cross is noted, rather than a hotel waitress.
In conclusion an adequate basic, clean, budget hotel with good suites.
