We booked 2 rooms at the Jenkins Hotel online for one night staying in late June. Thanks to Trip Adviser we knew exactly what we were in for. We chose this hotel because of its excellent location & proximity to St Pancreas station as we travelled by train to Paris the next day. I would normally choose a large hotel,...

Checking in is at the sister Judd hotel across the road which was fine, however as there...

I had the misfortune of staying 2 nights, in the basement, no wifi, no tv, in a prison cell. I have never stayed anywhere like it and i don't even want to talk about the experience now I'm home. I think I'm suffering from post traumatic stress syndrome. Don't do it to yourself

I have only just returned home from London and stayed in the Jenkins hotel for just one night. I will attempt to give you the good and bad points so you can make an informed choice about your stay here.
