We normally stay in the CBD but chose this property as it was in an area of restaurants and bars - ideal for evenings. The property does need attention - the decoration is a little tired with the bathrooms needing a refurb first of all. The staff were very helpful - it felt like we were staying with our great aunt! The location is ideal as long as you realise its in the heart of Kings Cross, so be aware of drunks and addicts passing by the front door at all times. They are harmless of course but this is probably not a property for the less travelled. We stayed in a courtyard room which was ideal. Breakfast is basic - I think it ought to be called a light continental style in order to not shock any hungry residents! Cable TV was adequate. In the front of the property - in a room previously used as a restaurant, are 4 tables for breakfast, a snooker table and 2 sofas. The background muzak is from the past hits of Broadway and the West End, a reminder perhaps of the the owners previous life?
