Stayed once, never again. I have tried to advise this establishment of what happened but received a barrage of denial and blame despite photo evidence. The wonderful George Hotel is just 2 mins walk away and way better.

I recently stopped in London whilst I was completing the marathon. I was looking for somewhere that was centrally located and reasonably priced, I have to say this hotel ticked all the boxes. The room I stayed in was fairly small but perfectly adequate for my needs. The breakfast offering was very good quality. From the moment I entered the...

Just a few yards from Kings Cross/ St. Pancras stations and easily walkable from Euston makes this hotel a good choice for anyone wanting a short break to visit the capital. Welcoming, friendly staff. Room spotlessly clean and comfortable, if a little on the small side. We asked for a quiet room and there was no noise at all at...

I stayed here for the second time with my friends, it is so so central, the staff are so professional and will go out of their way to help you with any of your needs. The beds are so comfortable with a lovely morning breakfast! Just a stones throw away from Kingscross station, perfect! I will definately stay here again....

Nice budget break for my wife's 60th, stayed in family room with my daughter and son . Not a lot of room, but for the price and a two night stay it was fine. A big plus for us it was so close to kings cross. Staff were polite and breakfast was ok. Would stay again for a short break.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel this past month, in March. I only note this because the weather was mild and there was no need for heating nor air conditioning. We slept with our window open several nights. Even though there is construction going on nearby, and the BUSY train station is just a half block away, the...
