This is the worst "hotel" I have ever had the displeasure of staying in. The rooms are dirty, taps were not even fitted to the sinks, I found someone else's hair inside my bed sheets. The shower was filthy. I had to change my room because it was so bad, then I as put in room 1 which was on...

Easy to check in and we paid on arrival. Staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome. Hotel is a 2 minute walk from Kings Cross St Pancras, couldn't have asked for a better location. The room was quite small but it was very clean. Bathroom was very clean also. We stayed for 2 nights/3 days, room was cleaned...

Me and my partner booked this B&B months in advance just as an overnight stay before getting the Eurostar the next morning - we do not live around London and so £60 seemed like a price that would get a basic yet comfortable and pleasant room. The pictures that are shown of the rooms did not prepare me for the...

I booked for a two night stay and based this booking on price and location. It cost £130 for 2 nights which I though was a great deal for the location. The staff on reception were very polite. Be warned if you have physical disabilities this is not the hotel for you. The staircase is steep and narrow and there...

I traveled to London with my boyfriend to see a band in Camden. We arrived at the hotel and wasn't even greeted by the strange man on reception, there was no conversation or customer service from the get go. Once we paid and was given keys we went up to the room and it was the worst hotel I've ever...

This hotel alright for short stay but would not want to stay too long. Reception area very small, can hear noise outside easily, single room very compact and can hear noise from next room. Good location, near stations and places to eat and drink. Cheap for central London.

I went to London 9 times and every time I choose this hotel is very comfortable, the staff is very firendly. The room are small but this is a typical of London hotels. Also is perfect for the position near King's cross where you can find most of the line of the Tube.

Had a short overnight solo stop over before catching and early morning Eurostar. For the low price it was a surprisingly decent place. Tiny ensuite room. But a comfy night sleep - quiet and peaceful, clean, basic facilities, inexpensive, great location. I'd stay there again.
