We stayed in a double room, shared bathroom, for two nights 21st. and 22nd. Nov. For central London this is unbeatable value, the hotel being clean and friendly, although breakfast was not included. However, no hospitality trays in rooms is a nuisance and plain wrong. In the hundreds of places I've stayed in throughout the UK, 98% had a tray....

Thanks for your feedback. I suppose you hit the nail on the head when you wrote we're "unbeatable value" - low hotel rooms prices in central London are really only achieved by cutting down on extra costs. This is why we're still one of the cheapest hotels in the area - and as long as people know what to expect...

We stayed here for a long weekend. Location was excellent, 5 minutes to the tube. A couple of decent restaurants nearby. Room was clean, facilities basic. Staff were polite, got extra pillows when requested. Would have been 5 stars but for the fact that we reported the light above the bathroom was not working and they failed to fix it...

It's was a good stay here at St. Athans Hotel. Location is easy with the tube and is close to shops and restaurants. Do try the Italian place around the corner. We had a shared bathroom and I was very happy to find multiple bathrooms of all sizes so do some checking. The staff was helpful and you do have...

What to say about this place. I had booked myself a single room, yes with the understanding it would be small and when I finally checked in I found that the room wasn't even an armspan wide. After finding somewhere eventually to put my luggage I settled in for a nap after my long haul flight only to have my...

We are a bit like Fawlty Towers - you're not wrong there. Sorry you had a bad stay with us. We try and look after guests as well as we can but sometimes things happen that get in the way. That booking mix up should never happen, and I'm sorry that the reception didn't handle it well - I will...

Nice hotel in a charming area of London, While not five stars, a great value for Inner London with plenty of basic comfort. Don't be scared of shared bathrooms. Never once did I have to wait. Rooms and bathrooms were CLEAN!

Very good offers when it is not full. There are all kind of rooms and many prices. WiFi is only available in the Lounge TV. Breakfast and other meals are in the Bloomsbury Café downstairs. The reception is guided by a family and their friends. It's very helpful if someone doesn't have any idea of London. Warm and lovely people....

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...

Walking distance to several underground station, Russell Square is the BEST! KingsCross if you'll take Eurostar... Supermarket on next block. Surrounding area is safe & convenient. Price is OK for such an expensive city. Little narrow stairs to climb with your LUGGAGE! Service (elder gentleman) was not so nice... No fresh towel available for each day (change if you ask).

Good price considering the very good location. Staff is very friendly and the rooms are clean. Wifi available. Otherwise furnitures, bed and carpets are very very old. Walls are paperthin. Overall an ok experience for a week-end.
