My rating is based upon the service we received, cleanliness and value for money...
Upon arrival the staff were amazing, really accommodating, friendly and helpful, even the cleaners went out of their way (we turned up early of check in). The St Athans is perfect if you need a base not too far from Kings Cross or St Pancras. While it might be basic, it is very clean and well cared for. I can't disagree enough with the negative comments on this site, we have two small boys and while staying in one room with them is a challenge in itself, the staff made it really enjoyable. The cafe beneath the hotel (same ownership I think) is also great, with a good range of light food and good hot & soft drinks, plus free wifi.
Our room had a double bed and two singles plus a sink and furniture. The shared showers were a short flight of steps down, a good size, the four of us all coped in one unit together! The lounge has free wifi, a TV and plenty of reading literature. There's a late night shop very close to the hotel as well as a few eateries. We tried Fork one day, round the corner, very nice coffee.
If you're looking for a basic, affordable room in a well positioned hotel in London, you can't go wrong with St Athans.
