I've stayed in plenty of budget hotels in London but this one is the worst. There was a mousetrap on the floor, the curtains were tissue paper thin, the walls were dirty, the bathroom had no light, I could here what I can only describe as 'sex noises' in the room above me all night and loud arguments in the...

I have stayed in a few hotels around Kings cross area throughout my stay in London. I can clearly and confirm say that this is the worse hotel ever. There is a Rude staff who talks back and loud at you. Worse customer service you can ever met, (especially in this competitive industry.) Hotel is under renovation and they renovated...

Chose the hotel based on location. Just opposite King's Cross Railway Station. Service staff were rude. Not helpful at all. I had paid when I booked via Booking.com. Was charged a deposit of 200 pounds which was billed by the credit card company. Room is located in a basement. Very noisy even in the early hours of the day. Breakfast...

Rude receptionist. Tiny room which was dirty. Hole patched in the bathroom door. Cold shower. No soap. Nothing like the photos suggested. I stayed for less than 20 minutes and left after a cold shower.

Apart from its location there is nothing good to say about this place, tiny, poor service and wooden floors on all corridors so don't worry about setting your alarm in the morning because the noise outside the room will be sure to wake you up. Worse still was the fact that I left a charger in the room when I...

The hotel is in a superb location, about 5 minute walk to Kings Cross and St Pancras stations/. The hotel is a budget hotel, so very basic, no frills, but warm enough and clean enough. TV didnt work, and being on the ground floor, quite noisy. I had an en-suite room, the shower room was also basic but adequate. If...

The room was not cleaned properly and very old furniture needs refurbishing. No aircon which made it unbearable when in room. No access given to wife. No lift had to go up to 3Rd floor with heavy bag. The bedding was clean.
