“OK hotel in central London”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

This place won't rock your world, but providing you get a decent rate you won't be disappointed either. The staff were pleasant, the room was average (our pillows were a bit rubbish but I'm sure they would have rectified that had we have called to reception). Location wise, it does feel less central than it actually is. Transport links are ok but as other reviews point out, it's about 15 minutes on foot to Kings Cross tube.

Enjoyed staying in this large hotel in bloomsbury while attending a trainin course for work nearby. Room was clean, spacious. Breakfast and dinner were very nice. Had a spicy burger from room service menu and man it was spicy! Burned my mouth out! Wifi was expensive in my opinion and recommend using other means to connect.. One downside of the hotel location is that its a bit of a trek to any underground station.

Moved to this holiday inn as the holiday inn express I stayed in in Victoria was truly awful.

Again thy had a heating issue in the room - couldn't turn heat down, but it wasn't too bad and room itself was comfortable and water and orange juice was complimentary.

Shower was nice but tap doesn't switch the water off afterwards (room 748).

Check in/check out was quick and friendly, hotel is in relatively quiet location, would stay again if I need to in the area.

Good point: quiet area
Points to improve: self-service breakfast out of scale with the price of the place; undrinkable breakfast coffee.

We stayed for 1 night. It was a good value at the time and the rooms were surprisingly spacious. Plan a good 15 mins to walk to/from King's Cross Station. We preferred taking the Russel Square Tube stop to head further into the city, 10 minute walk, and it offered a nicer/"safer" feeling walking at night plus there are a few pubs along the way! The staff was very friendly and accommodated our very early check-in without problem. Rooms are clean and the beds are decent for a shorter stay.
