I booked a month ago, but I have been put in a tiny, airless basement room by the kitchen/diner. I can't sleep as the tube trains shake the room. So I am writing this at 1am in the morning, really angry. I had the choice of dozens of hotels for the same price - why did I pick this dump? The room has been sliced in half with wooden partition, so its barely wider then the bed. Its deep in the basement. There is no air. The kitchen is next door, so I will be woken early. I can't believe I have paid money to be put into the basement. I hate it. I travel regularly, have seen all sorts of hotels - and have never complained before. This is the worst. They should pay me.

We were looking for somewhere close to Euston and all the chain hotels were full. This one is convenient for the three stations in the title - all can be reached within a five or ten minute walk along Euston Road.

I was a bit concerned by some of the negative reviews, but we found the welcome to be friendly, the room to be clean and the facilities not too bad.

Breakfast was basic but freshly prepared and tasty.

The room itself was well maintained - the bathroom was a little bit small and the shower cubicle was a tight squeeze, but there was plenty of hot water.

In conclusion, if you want a convenient stopover near the railway stations, then you shouldn't dismiss this place.

The place is pretty basic, but clean and they serve quite a good breakfast. The shower and basin hot water is scalding. Staff are friendly and try to please, which is quite rare these days!

Was hospitalised during holiday in London & husband needed somewhere to stay short notice. Staff extremely helpful with luggage and uncertainty over number in room. Shower small but bed very comfy and breakfast lovely. Fairly peaceful whilst we were there, although opposite student accommodation. Would go back

stayed for one night and thankfully, we arived late and left early.
our room was dingy, tired, too hot and very noisy. every door slam, every foot on the stairs seemed to reverberate through our room. there was a electric/boiler cupboard right next to our room that buzzed loudly and constantly making sleep almost impossible. the single glazed window was overlooked by four other rooms and its curtain, however tightly you stretched it, didnt cover it!
It was clean, and the breakfast was ok, but there are much better hotels in the same area for the same budget, unfortunately the one we had stayed at two weeks previous was full for our return trip. will not return to Avonmore.

Room Tip: go eleswhere

I had stayed there for 4 nights in Dec 2011. I was suprised to find the place nicer then expected. Comparing prices with hotels and apt nearbye, I would say good choise I've made.

Very clean apt, have a small garden. It is very small I must say but you have new furniture and the place is just next to the Russel Square and train station.

I would go back there anytime.
